Dead Space: Ashes by LunaticStar Dead Space: Ashes by LunaticStar
Everything I touch turns to ash. I thought I could find you in time, but now those damned ghosts won't let you go.

- - -

Dead Space 3 is on the way, and as usual I can't help but wonder, when he finds her, and he will, what will she be like? Lost in the cold, half-dead, driven to the brink by the Marker's signal, the Ellie we know and love could be gone. It's a reversal of roles, in my eyes, because after DS2 there's no doubt that Ellie helped coax Isaac back into reality. The end of 2 was a breaking point for him, and in 3 I think he'll be teetering on the edge of that inescapable chasm of madness he was being sucked in to in 2. Ya know?

Anyways, a couple hours in photoshop, it feels nice to paint again from such a long break. All the feels have been welling up inside me for this game! Cut off from a proper pc for last week, I couldn't wait to get home and do somethin' about it.

Yep!

ugh, I like your theme so much better than the actual game's theme.
Just note that people would've gotten in a fuss about how it's "saving the princess" again. (Not that the alpha-male IsaacV.Norton subplot was any better)
Your Isaac has one of the best eyes I've ever seen on DA. The feels are palpable.

Thank you!  And I don't care if people would fuss.  It was the natural progression of the plot.   It just went balls sideways in 3 for no reasons to do with the first two games :/

I liked 1 and 2 a lot, if 3 hadn't happened, I'd still be on the ds ship for sure.  Thanks so much for perusing my art, I am glad you're liking it. <3

This is great. I think it's a fitting picture of what could be reality. We'll know in a few weeks.

Honestly, words cannot describe how excited I am about it.

I think she will be... completely fine actually. She did survive a screwdriver to her eye and Dead Space 2 as a whole.

On a related note I don't know if your into the extended universe but Lexine Miller (nee Murdoch) from Dead Space Extraction was immune to the marker effects, and Ellie was noticeably absent of symptoms too barring shell shock. So... Also Lexine is preggers. Which is apparently all according to plan for the Unitologists...

Anyway another great pic, the blue is weird though.

It was a unitologist experiment, it was Earth Gov. To begin with, but unitologist extremist try to abduct her during the sprawl outbreak in the events of Dead Space 2: Severed DLC.

Lexine Weller, yep, and according to the dev team, Gabe is not confirmed as dead, either, and also according to the dev team, there are human enemies in 3 that are pretty much the crux of this conspiracy, so we might be seeing some development on those lines!

Weird blue is my life choice.

Gabe weller is dead. You try surviving losing your leg, massive amounts of blood loss, and necromorphs coming at you when you pass out from the blood loss. Trust me he is dead. This is the end of the Dead Space 2: Severed DLC. Gabe's right leg is blown off by a grenade that detonated at basically point blank range.

She's immune to the Marker, at least she seemed to be in the 2nd game anyway. She better not die, Isaac will hate himself if she dies.

Also, your art is amazing, and I'd really love to see more of Isaac and Ellie in the way that you've drawn the pair. MOAR PICS PL0X :P

No one's immune, and we never got the story from her PoV. ;) There are different degrees of being affected, though, for sure. So, my vote is that she was affected, but we don't know how, rather than the narrative of the game being wrong and going against the lore.

THANKS!! Not sure if you saw, but there is a buttload of Dead Space fanart in its own little folder in my gallery! I've been a raving fangirl for a while, haha.

Ways I would hate the franchise: Ellie is dead, Ellie is taking to us throughout the game but it turns out she's dead and Issac is mad again (not only would it be repetitive, but it would be a real dick move), Issac dies at the end (He's survived two, he should be the protagonist that makes it through every outbreak cause he's awesome like that), the entire universe somehow gets Necromorph infested while Issac was away.

Actually, that last one will probably happen, but I'm hoping it would be in like the fifth game at least, pacing and all that.

Actually, Issac dying would make sense. The man has been through hell the last few years. If it means the threat of EarthGov and the Necromorphs are ended, then he's ready to die and finally reunite with Nicole.

...though I hope he and Ellie kiss at least once during the game. Second loves are adorable.

I have complete faith for a good, deep and profound ending. This is the end of the series, as far as Isaac is concerned, but I do trust them!

Whelp from what I've read about the weapons system, it'll be totally different, aka the level of customization is pretty much unlimited (play with the weapon creator on deadspace.com to see how it's itemized), but you'll be able to reproduce exactly 'classics' like the plasma cutter. The alt fire being a beam switch was pretty much a staple of the weapon, so my gut tells me it'll be there! But who knows. :>

It's confirmed that all of the 12 original weapons are in/can be recreated. The plasma cutter with alt fire can be seen in the weapon customization video so I'm content!
