Posts Tagged ‘For the ashes of his fathers’
After watching Oblivion I looked up this quote and it dawned on me to create this Wallpaper. I decided to incorporate the quote into this Wallpaper designed from a Oblivion promo shot, also to note, I added a darker HDR tone to start, then added the appearance of a star filled night sky with a view of the galaxy. Enjoy.
“To every man upon this earth
Death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better
Than facing fearful odds
For the ashes of his fathers
And the temples of his gods,”
If you were wondering, the quote is originally from Thomas Babington Macaulay (1800–1859), a British poet. (Lays of Ancient Rome)
