Finally I did an artwork with Ezio. I dunno, what came over me to do this, although Ezio is my third-place-character after Altair and Connor. But to be honest, this artwork and a few fanfictions brought him closer to my heart. I dedicate this artwork to because of her great fanfictions that previously inspired me a lot ... and because of her love for Ezio ... ... and to all those, who requested a pairing with Ezio. I longtime was not sure about the background, whether it sould be day or night. I ended up doing an afternoon background in Venice where Ezio and Rosa are kissing on a balcony. BTW, Venice is a fantastic place to be. I have been there twice. The atmosphere there is bewitching and fascinating.
Now, the whole artwork of Altair with a golden eagle is finished. Or better to say: With a golden eagle army? After playing all the assassins Creed games I came to the conclusion, that Altair ibn La-Ahad always will be my favourite character!
For a better detail of his face: [link] Enjoy and comment! I would appreciate that!
I dunno, why i just draw Connor that way. Maybe I am a little bit bloodthirsty, maybe I chatted a little bit to long with a friend (she has a real crush on that guy), maybe I have read too much fanfictions or I wanted to keep alive the feeling, that this game will arrive in a few days ... yes, I am still waiting for the PC-Version ...Gaaaah!
Connor is about to kill someone, he not even had the time to dress completely. As if he heard kinda gut-wrenching noise of a guy or a woman in need, that he has to react straight away. So, what he then is looking at in the tent makes him furious. Connor does not just kill - but does so with uncommon brutal grace. Not the grace of god, but the grace of death. I like that black gaze in the shadow of his hood ...
I know, his face looks not that native. Iguess i probably draw him better, after I have played the game and captured the full presence of connor. To draw is to experience first (to me). But I couldn't wait to do this piece of Connor ... Actually I tried drawing rain and my intention was doing that immediatly digital instead of doing a sketch first.
This Artwork was longtime in my mind. A naval warfare one. Connor and Haytham - Assassin and Templar - are working together! Poor Benjamin Church! BTW, Sequence 9 of AC3 is my absolute favorite part of the game.
"Our interests are aligned" ... but how long?
This was a perspective challenge for me. I guess, here and there I could do adjustments, but at some point you have come to an end. It took me far to long to do it, but I hope it was worth the effort and you enjoy it!
After playing AC Revelations I was obsessed with the idea of creating an artwork of Altair with a golden eagle. I am still on it, but this image section i liked that much, that I decided to share in full resolution here on deviantart. The artwork with the eagle is much bigger and i will also submit it here next time. For now enjoy this portrait of Altair Ibn La'Ahad! (By the way, I wanted to draw the facial expression of the original Altair Model, Fransisco Randez)
This artwork I dedicate to in honouring of her damn good fanfiction "Prince and Assassin".
Brief synopsis: The Prince returns to Babylon to find it captured and in flames. the Vizier, resurrected because of the events on the Island of Time, brought his armies of Sand monstrocities to Babylon. He also brought his former lord's daughter Farah with him as a captive. the Prince frees her without knowing it. Altair gets mixed up in this simply by chance. He meets the Prince who tries to conceal his Dark side from him. Eventually they get separated from Farah and each other and Altair is captured by the Vizier who infects him with the Sands thinking that an immortal Assassin is a good asset to him in finding the Prince and killing him.
It was very difficult to draw a face contorted with pain, also strained muscles are a challenge for me. Anyway I hope you like it! Critics and Comments welcome!
