Speed Me Towards Death by Arashdeep Speed Me Towards Death by Arashdeep
"Only the dead survive."

I quite like science fiction and horror, so...

I just wanted to make something based around one of my favourite games, Dead Space. And since Dead Space 2 is coming, continuing the story of Isaac Clarke, the tormented hero of the first game, I created this. Dead Space is pretty much video-gaming's answer to 'Alien', and it is quite excellent.

Dead Space 2 will take place three years after the Ishimura incident, where a space city called 'The Sprawl' suddenly becomes infected, and Isaac (who is cracked and insane) is dragged back into the mess of things. He confronts worse nightmarish creatures, a mysterious conspiracy, and his own fucked up mind.

I look forward to it. Isaac actually... talks and stuff now. Much appreciated, Visceral.

The title comes from a Rob Dougan song called "Speed Me Towards Death". Thought it sort of fits Isaac. You can listen to it here:

Damn, that is one mighty awesome looking manip! :D
I'm loving the broken glass and the x-ray vision... And all the faint necromorph shadows in the background are a great little touch.

Man, just the addition of the Marker behind Isaac suddenly made this piece of art so much better.
January just can't come around fast enough. :iconeagerpee:

It's a really cool piece. And it's not often that I see someone who actually manips another piece of video game artwork in some way. Usually they just upload it as is. :T

I want this as a wallpaper - heck, I want this on a damn T-shirt! Epic work. How did you create it?

I love Dead Space - probably a bit too much, to be honest....the first game is one of my all-time favourite games, and I really hope the sequel is just as brilliant. I can't wait for January!

I didn't really create anything, I just used multiple sources and sort of put it together best I could

looking forward to deadspace 2 as well. just pulled dead space out the other day and played it again. Playing it on hard difficulty is almost literally impossible!

oh, give it a shot. it takes between 5 to 8 shots to take down a necromorph, so your killing them faster than you get ammo. cant get past the part at the beginning where your ship blows up and your on the bridge. 10 shots left, half health, and 4 necros coming. impossible
