New Empire by AdamBurn New Empire by AdamBurn
Quite an old image this one but it was sadly kept under wraps in the vein hope the client would honor their side of the agreement, but unfortunately some people still treat freelance artists like crap, ow well no pretty artwork for them.

Inspired by the Killzone games it shows three different views of a large army being given a rallying speech possibly before going to war, or maybe it's just someones birthday.

I've been thinking of this epic scifi story, but besides a few sketches, haven't really got that image out so when I found deviant art I thought "Hey some of peoples stuff gives me the same vibe as my story. I'll give this a try." But holycrap dude alot ofyour stuffnot only matches the vibe, but its like you took the image right out of my head. Epic.

"Soldiers of Amati! For too long we have stood under the oppressive shadow of the so-called Pristine Sphere, where our spoiled Overlords believe they have the right to take what they please from us! They believe they can control us by controlling Amati's terraforming stations, they believe that we can do them no harm with nothing but sticks and stones, they believe we will submit with our world reduced to a frozen wasteland! But what they've failed to realize, in their arrogance, is that we can adapt, we can develop our own technology, and we can feel loss and despair and Hatred for the Sphere's heartless actions. We have all lost husbands, wives, sons and daughters, mothers and fathers to the Unforgiving Cold that they have wrought upon us! And for what? Because we asked for autonomy, to be recognized as an independent world. They think us beaten or dead! But You, Soldiers of Amati, will prove them Wrong! Finally, after all these years, vengeance is yours for the taking! Your Cobalt suits will allow to fight in any and all environments, your Pulse Rifles will strike down any who dare stand against you. Your Walkers and Tanks will make the ground tremble beneath their iron casings! Your gunships will bring down the wrath of Amati itself upon the hapless! And with the fleet of warships given to us by our new Tashiri Allies, we will Shatter Their Skies!!! So Go, Soldiers of Amati, and remember the loved ones you lost to the Unforgiving Cold, remember that pain well, so you can deliver the same to them! GLORY TO AMATI!!!!!!"

The masses of the army roared in reply to the uplifting speech. Weapons raised and shaken in the sky. Their spirits was deafening, drowning out all fear and doubt, replacing with valour and righteous fury.

The indiscernible screams soon became unison, a single word chanted from the lips of the warriors.




This moment is worthy of a saga.

"My people... Sons and Daughters of Helghan... For many years, we have been a broken nation: shunned, oppressed, and conquered by those we sought to escape. Ten years ago, I asked for time, and that time was granted by you. You: the strength in my arm, the holders of my dreams... "
"Our forefather have embarked on the greatest Exodus in the history of all Mankind. an exodus for FREEDOM. HELGHAN became that FREEDOM! Our new world, changed our bodies. At first, it weakened us, but in fact, we were growing, stronger. In that time you have given me I have rebuilt our nation, I have rebuilt our strenght and I have rebuilt our Pride. Our enemies at have been reeducated. Giving them new insights into our cause. On this day we stand united once more. On this day, THOSE DRIVEN TO DIVIDE US WILL HEAR OUR VOICE! ON this day we shall act as one and we shall be ignored NO MORE! Defenders of the Helghast dream, now is our TIME!"

Scolar Visari, Hero and father of our great nation Helghan!

One of the greatest video game characters ever.
