Assassins by wraithdt Assassins by wraithdt
This is a one-sheet poster I did for Radical Publishing's Assassins a while back. A highly fictional and fantastical take on the medieval Crusades, its shows Richard the Lionheart and Saladin fighting side by side against hordes of assassins.

Saladin fighting with a crusader in order to vanquish powerful forces don't chock me but... Richard the Lionheart, very suprising <3 I just love to imagine both of them say "we can't do it otherwise !"

Well, Richard and Saladin did say things to each other that indicated that they thought rather highly of each other, so this would probably be the medieval tag-team everyone's been waiting for.

Wow this is great! I can't believe you do something like this within a day!

Your interpretation of Richard is very close to the one illustrated in the Osprey Book "The crusades". Very authentic :)

It reminds me Lionheart: Legacy of the Crusader pc game. It is a old game and its intro is about both Crusaders and Muslims against hordes of darkness. Well amazing work :clap:

This is a stretch to imagine, but it's not entirely unrealistic. There were assasination attempts on Saladin during the crusades and, probably, on Richard as well. Both men respected eachother immensely and, given the chance, I doubt either of them would have killed the other in single combat. Thus the badassery of this drawing is not only uberly awesome, but somewhat believeable.

Very well done.
