Origins Game Fair: War College 2012 by Everwho Origins Game Fair: War College 2012 by Everwho
"Washington Crossing The Delaware... With a U.S. Army Ranger!" or "A Bad Day For Hessians"
Origins Game Fair promotional artwork
Copic marker and colored pencil on paper, digital
Client: GAMA/Origins Game Fair
2012 Talon Dunning

This was done for the Origins Game Fair convention program, specifically for the section on the War College, a series of talks revolving around wars, both real and imagined. It is, of course, based on the iconic painting by Emanuel Leutze. The theme for the 2012 Origins convention is "time travel," which explains the presence of the U.S. Army Ranger on the boat. I'm sure that won't cause any problems with the timeline whatsoever... Paradox? We're the Special Forces, Son! Paradox can suck it. Hooah!

Preliminary sketch and my contributions for 2011 and 2013.

You did an awesome job on that pic. I really like on how you put an U.S. Army Ranger to help Washington and the rest win the war. You should keep doing something like that next time. I really enjoy your work man. Keep up the good work.

You mean another time-travel Revolutionary War pic?  Well, this was done specifically for the 2012 Origins Game Fair convention, which had a time-travel theme that year.  Specifically, it's a parody of an existing piece of art, so it's unlikely I'll be doing anything else relating to it.  Time-travel is a fun subject, though, so you never know.  :-)  I did do other pieces relating to the Origins War College, although they weren't time-travel related, since Origins theme changes every year.  They were steampunk and comic books, respectively.  Links to those are in the description, above.  Together, these three form something of a related series of war-themed pieces.

I expect the modern Ranger would have helped greatly against the British. But then, when depicting the Brits, maybe you should incorporate a Royal Marine Commando! :)

Sure, if I were depicting Brits.  This is just Americans, though, Americans going to fight German mercenaries at that.

Interesting that those mercs later came to South Africa. I believe they fought quite well in the US, but not here. Maybe they preferred the cold?

I think it's still pretty cool that you put this character beside him, it makes a weird time paradox and I love it!
(I still prefer my Connor there though, haha! :D )

Yeah, people keep bringing him up. The Ranger is "Timeborne" which means he's from the future, specially trained to operate in a specific theater of historical warfare and sent back to time to assure victory in decisive battles.
