Good Friday 2019

Second of my four pictures for Passiontide and Easter.

Spoilers following for Ace Attorney: Apollo Justice.

In Ace Attorney, dates are given for everything that happens, but for only one event, the death of Gregory Edgeworth, is the year given. Still, that allows the whole timeline to be plotted out. In 2019, this year, occurs the trial of Zak Gramarye for the murder of Magnifi Gramarye, which results in the disbarment of Phoenix Wright and the beginning of the Dark Age of the Law, and it happens on April 19, Good Friday, that is today.

I was stunned when I discovered this. Of all the things in Ace Attorney possibly to happen on Good Friday, this may be the most symbolically appropriate. With only the one year specified and Good Friday always being a different date, there's no way they did it on purpose, surely! ...I tend to believe that stories have guardian angels.

This is like my twelve Christmas pictures portraying the Christmas events in Ace Attorney with added symbolic emphasis. I based the poses and lighting on Ecce Homo by Antonio Ciseri.

As always, this is not intended to be in any way irreverent. Heroes, if they exemplify true goodness, will be images of Christ.

In a word, "Wow..."

And from an artistic standpoint, you really nailed the lighting in this one.
