AC:B: Requiescat In Pace by JessKat-art AC:B: Requiescat In Pace by JessKat-art
I liked how in AC: Brotherhood Ezio can interact with his fallen recruits by closing their eyes and saying a few words to honor them. It's just too bad I don't get to do this often as I'm usually busy running away from guards or being killed myself while my recruits are dying around me. :P

I thought it would be nice to imagine a scene where all the assassins - not just Ezio - are gathered together to mourn one of their fallen comrades.

I personally think that this peice has a great concept, and I also wish they had more mourning actions for the AC games. The colors in the backround really set the theme of sadness and lamentation with the peachy-orange hue and the detail of the wind blowing is just beautiful. Although my inner critic screams for more diversity in the outfits, I recognize this as an amazing peice of art. Also, are there two girls in the picture or is it just my imagination? If so, I think more hints to that should be added. Thanks for your great work!
What do you think?

I absolutely love this man. The mood is very clear, I love that ezio and the females are the only ones in master robes. Keep up the great work I'm a huge fan.

P.s. Please do some air assassinations of every main protagonist? That would be sick!

They're master assassin robes. All the girls in the pic are master assassins too, hence the uniform.

This is beautiful. Personally, I never call my recruits for fear of them dying. Yeah, I haven't had any casualties... And I hope it stays that way.

well, i'm sorry to say that that is not so. granted, most of the italian spoken in the ezio trilogy was old world italian, and doesn't translate the same as modern day italian, i still learned how to speak it nonetheless.

D':  The recruits dying always upsets me.... I lost two, and then spazzed out and lvled all the rest up to master assassins before calling them into fights around me anymore. They make me so happy to see running around my screen. My sister probably thinks I'm nuts 'cause I'm always like, 'aww, look at my babies.' |D

OMG, that's so weird  and coincidental. I think about them exactly as you do. They're my little babies, and I want to level them up as much as I can before calling them out so that way they won't die.

I didn't realize they could actually die before. OTL  I thought if they got hurt enough, they'd just run away or something. And then I saw 'em die and got really sad  ;n;  My poor babies....♥ And then everyone else turned into Master Assassins and kicked Templar ass. The end.  8D  ~♥

My recruits always had a tendancy to die in foreign countries, on missions with 99% success rates @_@ The Templars are the 1% that will not -die-.

....though if I were Ezio I would tromp to aformentioned countries and at least bring home the bodies. They were -Romans-, and deserve to be buried at home.

This is a beautiful picture. I honestly didn't know you could interact with their dead bodies... mostly because their dead bodies are never around me. >>' Ezio's like "I'll distract the guard, you get him from behind." It works too. But now knowing what I know, blargh, I am entirely thrilled someone decided to do a picture like this. As others say: the recruits get so little love.

I knew you could do that in ACR and AC3, but I never realized it was possible in ACB, mostly because I only had one recruit die, and he fell off of the Castel Sant'Angelo, so I didn't exactly try going after him...

This is an excellent piece. Love the concept, and the perspective. Well done!

I still remember the name of my fallen recruit, Ugo Ubaldi...

and from that moment on, i NEVER bring out my recruits until they are ranked Master Assassins...

Requiescat in Pace....

I didn't know that! I gotta do that! I never knew that because my recruits never died on my watch. If I lost a recruit, it's because they fell in the water (my first master assassin was knocked into the warrior by a brute)

I must admit that I was naive enough to think that the recruits couldn't be killed and then whenthe best of them got killed (she was so close to becoming an assassin, damnit) I... cried. :D Ah... it seriously got to me and I just had to kill those bastards who killed her. But since then I started using their powers wisely, so.. it was good for something, I guess. :D Beautiful art...
