They ware called to join the war, promising those who died in the endeavor would receive immediate remission of all their sins....




It took a while to finish this one, but here it is!
Armour design partially inspired by work of Chris Drysdale that can be found on http://chrisdrysdale.com/full/drysdale_earthLight.jpg. Tnx Chris

Great model, texture and style. Like it very much. In the same time it is partially a dark "vision of future", wich makes me scared a little bit. Maybe this is closer to reality than much people think :) However, good work!

Looks great, but I gotta ask, who are they fighting, and why? Maybe they are Old Testament types...unless of course, it's the Book of Revelation!

tnx Shrox.
The fractions opposing the apsolute rule of Pope Maximillian VI grew stronger, and pilgrims were routinely slaughtered, sometimes by the hundreds, as they attempted to make the journey from the coastline at New Jaffa into the Holy Land. Encouraged by the new developments, in the Easter parts of the planet Sect's ware uniting and New Jihad, it seemed, was inevitable. It is then that "The Poor Knights OF Christ" ware called upon once again, to protect the pilgrims and unite the world once again, under one rule and one God....

What a great and thought-provoking image... the style is stunning and love the work on the wings... what a brilliant back story... love the whole lot... nothing more to say.

Get this image over to 3dWorld magazine gallery... always distinctly lacking in Lightwave renders or work in general. Now, time for you too do a feature-length film on this story ;) I'd definitely pay to watch it!!

lardbros- tnx for you nice comment! So glad the image gave you some food for thoughts! It's a deep subject.
Took your suggestion for 3dWorld! :)
Yea, feature-length film, i would also pay to watch that! :)

No probs... just love the image... and the whole story!


Good luck on getting into 3D World... I'm certain you'll get it in there!

(Just noticed a grammar error on my original post, and hate it when people do it... I meant "Now, time for you to do a feature-length film on this story"

The 'too' must have been a fat finger whilst typing... didn't even noticed)
