You can thank SX255 for this brilliance. Hard to refuse a request like that.

This is brilliant. Just absolutely fantastic. Thanks Aegis for drawing it (?) and SX255 for the commission (?) .

 

Lay it to rest and contemplate better things. And say hi to all your old friends while they're all together (hint: give Sacred 1 and/or 2 a replay). ;)

Yes, I drew it, and again thank SX255 for the idea. Wouldn't have touched the idea with a fifty foot pole till he revealed his evil plan. ;)

This is PERFECT! :heart:

The color, the shading, the detail, the overall summarized message and atmosphere.

 

Please, correct me if I'm wrong, this is THE FIRST fan art to Sacred 3. Oh the irony... and the statement from the entire Sacred fan community. Revel in it... post it everywhere... Err...

Aegis, can we freely copy-past this work with your permission?

 

In any case, we now have a perfect summary for all or emotions and reviews rolled up into one simple image.

This is Brilliant Aegis, well done!!

You couldn't have captured of what counts to us, as fans and broken hearted-cryers about what happend, is happening, and we never want to happen again.

 

Good job sir!

Credit the source and you can post this anywhere. :)

 

Anyways, glad you all like the jab. Pure sadness of our beloved franchise, but still all in good fun, too. ;)

Oh... Wow... Honestly. At first I smiled, then snickered and then... As I looked longer and longer I think I actually shed a tear, lol. Seriously though. The drawing sums up earily too well. Excellent idea and execution!

Shed a tear, huh? Can't say I blame you or anyone for that matter. :D And thanks. I'm glad you got some joy out of it. :)

Well at first I took it as a mocking jab at deep silver's version of Sacred but after looking a while I could see a fair bit of thought went into choosing the character's, their positions and tone. I especially like the two at the far left. Is that SX255 at the far left, inconsolable by the dwarf?

That's why it's so brilliant. Every character is there, and how they look, what they're doing, who they're interacting with/standing by, it's all just right.

 

The TG is understandably on his knees devastated since SX255 had the idea for the drawing. And his S1 counterpart the Dwarf, already being of that height, is consoling him.

 

The Wood Elf and Dark Elf, the couple from S1 take comfort in each other's embrace, while their kin the High Elf stands close with her little pet demon.

 

The Dragon Mage turns away while his little Familiar howls at the sky. The Dryad is in dress attire but still has a leafy hat and a shrunken head. She offers tissues to the Gladiator, who still refuses to don a shirt but at least manages a little bowtie.

 

The two symbols of Light and Shadow stand at center. The Seraphim heads up the service and reads a passage while the Inquisitor stands stoically next to her with head reverently bowed.

 

The Daemon consoles the Battlemage, somewhat sensually I might add. Maybe a "celebration of life" is in order later that night. ;)

 

The Shadow Warrior, the strongest and already dirty with graveyard soil, has the gravedigger's duty.

 

And the Vampiress stands aloof holding her parasol to keep the sun's rays off of her.

 

Just great work.

No, I did not request any self-insertion - it would have ruined the picture.

Besides, I'm a battle extension of a guy.

 

No regrets - the picture is perfect.

SX255 did give me some guidelines, like the elves consoling each other, the inclusion of a grave digger, and one of the characters holding an umbrella. I actually thought to have the TG point that gun into its mouth with the dwarf trying to pull its arm away, but decided not to especially in light of actual recent suicides like Robin Williams. There were other ideas given but didn't make it mainly because of time and skill. May not have a deadline, but I still wanted to finish it while the proverbial wounds were fresh. :P Also contrary to what the forums may think, I'm not that good. :P Just decent. >> So I'm impressed people recognize who's who. :P Also, no shame in liking something better than anything from S3. Come to think of it, a kick to the shins is probably better than S3. X(

You guys duo'd on this so well. In fact, I find myself returning to this image over and over. It bring a lot of nostalgia to my heart. Great detail, great care in this obviously from devoted and loving fans.

Shame on you Deep Silver

:mafia:

I was also asked to have this pic posted at the Sacred portal. Pretty amused yet saddened at the same time. :(

The picture is slowly going around all the communities.

Somebody on the original Deviantart post of the picture asked for permission to post it on the Sacred.pl website. You can find that picture here:

http://www.sacred.pl/index_sacred3.php?mod=s3galerie&cat=s3fanarts

 

I went and posted it on the http://vk.com/sacredwiki Got a comment:

"Самое печальное, что именно так дела и обстоят..." (The saddest part, this is the exactly how things are...)

In a strange way, it's funny how a fans' creativity looks to bring the greatest amount of critique if not shame to the company.

Has this been posted on the official Sacred 3 forum yet?

 

:)

:dntknw:

Though there should be no harm in posting it again.

Does anyone have an account there?
