This is a piece I did for Crossed Genres' CG Magazine 2.0 Anthology. :) An adventurer makes a discovery in an ancient temple!

Bears a striking resemblance to the Apple of Eden from Assassin's Creed, but this passes a more magical feeling, rather than the ancient technology from Those Who Came Before. And the ruins look immersive as well!

I thought it looked more towards Treasure Planet's Map.

The prosthetic leg helps guiding the memory. I was in an Assassin's Creed marathon through Ezio's history (II - Brotherhood - Revelations) back then, so the Apple was still fresh in my mind.

That makes sense. I got Treasure Planet from the map of a star system of the artifact is giving off. Sweating a little...

It reminds me of the power cells from the original Jak & Daxter. Your style is amazing, by the way.

Inspired by Assassin's Creed III?? :)

no..? I've never played any of the Assassin's Creed games. 
ChicoBioca's avatar
Vail-Combat-Irtis said that because the golden planets in your art are almost identical to the Apple of Eden from Assassin's Creed franchise.

I'm pretty sure Assassin's Creed is not the first or only property to ever make use of gold orbs. Floating gold orbs (and holographic planetary displays) are not uncommon. 
ChicoBioca's avatar
You are correct, naturally. Everyone sees in the image their own favourite golden orb, which makes me wonder what was your inspiration for those. Might I add that your image has its own identity, and only the golden orbs are loosely reminiscent of Assassin's Creed. The girl, temple around her and solar system give away a very different vibe. But I'm too much of an AC fan not to think about it when I see a round golden shape.

Nice! Sorta reminds me of the scene in Prometheus where David witnesses the star map in action.
