'Spartans Never Die' - WWI Spartan by LeviWasTaken 'Spartans Never Die' - WWI Spartan by LeviWasTaken
Having been burnt out on Halo-inspired art lately, my friend, Padraig, came to me with some ideas that changed that. Check out his fun little investigation into discovering Spartans of the past, with two illustrations this time by me, the Spartan Knight and this WWI Spartan. Hopefully more to come!

Once I get a few other projects finished, I'll be coming back for a 'Mark II' version of this, alongside maybe a Samurai Spartan and other designs...

I'm sorry, but this totally reminds me of the NCR from Fallout New Vegas >w<

I love how you illustrated this. Looks like an actual propaganda poster.

I played a little Fallout 2 a long time ago and got confused and lost. But I think I've put 50-70 hours into Fallout 3. It's a fantastic game, and I'd pay it as much as my Elder Scrolls if it didn't scare the shit out of me half the time. Skyrim - I can run into a cave and shout zombies to pieces, but Fallout? I slowly crawl through a cave counting my ammo and feeling physically claustrophobic, and run away as fast as possible.

Oh jeez I know exactly what you mean >W<
I have a deathly fear of Yao Guai. Not even Deathclaws scare me that much cuz they just sweep their arms while yao guai just freaking all out attack and jump and oh my god.
I think the most scariest experience I've ever had to deal with was when I was getting the bobblehead from the Deathclaw cave though. It was so dark...and they just jumped me from behind. I had to take a five minute break.

Hah, I remember yelping and running from Centaurs in the dark a lot. Those were probably the freakiest. Truly the scariest part of the game was just the atmosphere. One of the most immersive, uncomfortable atmospheres I've seen created in a game.

Oh jeez yes. I remember stepping out into the wasteland the first time and the atmosphere really creeped me out. It's like ANYTHING can happen at ANY second so I better watch my back or become some mutated animal's food. But I think the metro tunnels were by far the creepiest. The darkest and most uncomfortable part of the game were those tunnels right there.

Yes. Just sprinting and screaming through them as fast as possible. It's so bizzare that Fallout and Skyrim/Oblivion have the same engines and great atmospheres, but so different that one makes you feel alone and in despair, while Elder Scrolls makes you feel like a super hero.

A secret WW1 project. That could have a interesting story to tell. Would they use drugs or Mechanichal enhancement?

There's a link in the description that should lead you to a short little investigation into where these visuals come from. :)

The preview was all the author and I had planned when we attempted it, and we ended up not pursuing the project any further afterwards, and that was.... let's see... 5 years ago, now. :)
