Sacrifice by lonefirewarrior Sacrifice by lonefirewarrior
No one is invincible.

The following is by :iconkushlukvonshimazu:

Thus the thunder of war and chaos came to a stop,


yet many a life had perished under that desolate rock.
The once lush and thriving homes are now but ash and shadow,
supplying the bards of the future with tales of bravery and sorrow.
Though the casualties were staggering and many were lost,

one soul gave everything to save all and paid the ultimate cost.
The companions knew little of the warrior’s past life or even his name,

but due to his selfless deeds they still honored the soldier all the same.
They gathered the weapons of his fallen foes around his burial ground,

then struck his rifle’s barrel into the head of the snow covered mound.
The snow gently fell around them as if the skies themselves softly wept,

blanketing the site of their fallen comrade who now peacefully slept.
With a saddened but knowing purpose the heroes began to leave,

but not before they planted the warriors helm for all to see.

In time all are doomed to death’s eternal slumber,
but his deeds would be sung by uncounted numbers.


Was listening to music at work when the song "Sacrifice" from the Halo 4 soundtrack popped up and this came to mind. The idea here was that the snow hasn't been falling for long, hence why it hasn't begun to stick to the ground or anything. I don't even know where or how I got these brushes for snowflakes, but I guess thanks to whoever made them.

Same deal as always. Check out the song that inspired this, or fuck off:
"Sacrifice" - Neil Davidge & Kazuma Jinnouchi www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGX1fv…

Achieved with your mother. And Garry's Mod. And Photoshop

Whos the character holding Noble Six's helmet? Is it from a different game?

Spartans never die... they just take a long time to respawn.

Jokes aside, this piece is magnificent, incorporating protagonists from different universes to pay homage for a fallen comrade.

So I've been looking through your old images again and I'm curious as to what map or maps you used for this, Need That Spark to Get Psyched Back UpNeed That Spark to Get Psyched Back UpEven Heroes Know When to be Scared and Always Want to Play But You Never Want to Lose. Did you actually use maps (which one's) or are some of the things in the background just photo shopped.
And with that said if I haven't said it before then I will now, those images including this one are just epic, I wished I'd been around when you first released them.

The first one was done on an older version of this map: steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles…

The others were scenes built entirely from scratch. Though bits of the flaming parts in "Even Heroes Know When To Be Scared" were taken from various Halo Reach screenshots.

You built them from scratch? Great job, show's you're commitment.
Thanks by the way.

Personally I believe that Halo 4's '117' or Halo 3's 'Never Forget' would have been more appropriate. Great work nonetheless my friend, great work.

I was inspired by the song. I didn't try to match the two things together in post like a tool.

Congrats on being wrong.

Oh, I just cut her off because I thought her gesture was more important than seeing her actual expression(the helmet is the focal point). She's unique enough visually that I knew people who played FF13 would still easily recognize her.
