Assassin's creed III - ratohnhaké:ton, Connor Kenway.
It's finally finished, took me so long to build up interest in it again to come back and finish it.. And honestly i can see myself coming back to it again to touch up on it and colour it because im still learning
Thank you everyone who showed interest in its early version!! and for everyone who will continue to do so (:
So here it is, finished! I thought this would came out a little better, but still :/ I can say my scanner sucks and that it is a bit better! Anyway let me share you with you my story and why this drawing was important for me. It may contain spoiler, you know what to do. So, while playing Assassin's Creed 3 I found myself a little in Connor. I have a similar relationship with my father. I have never met him. I know who he is and everything but I have never met him. He left my mother when he knew she was expecting me and he never ever asked anything about me. I always say that I don't care much about it and a part of me really doesn't care. But I'm starting to feel that I'm missing something. I will never know what it's like to have a father that loves you. Even the words father or dad are weird to me. But, still, I do not hate him. He's still my father, isn't he? As time passes I know find it really hard to share my feelings, I'm scared that people will leave me again, forget about me. This is the main reason why I wanted to draw those two. Connor doesn't trust his father, but I think that after all that happened he cannot hate him. He hoped that things could get better. I really hope for them to reunite and the end just broke my heart. I'm sorry for this long description but since art is self expression I wanted to tell you a bit more about me and this drawing. I hope you will like it even thought it is not as good as I hoped it would have been.
"I have known a true freedom. I have known a world of peace and remarkable spirit. A world, which was taken from me." ― Ratonhnhaké:ton, Connor Kenway

I've been trying to finish this for 3 weeks... The hood gave me nightmares... Since I finished the game, I wanted to make a drawing of Connor, similar to this [link] I want to believe that I might do one of Altair's...(some day..)
*SPOILER ALERT* Do not read the following description if you have not yet finished the game. It contains the spoilers.
Achilles Davenport. He named his new apprentice Connor after his dead son. I don't know if Achilles knew the year Connor Kenway was born but if he did...he might have been amazed by a twist of fate.
Connor Davenport, the son of Achilles died in 1755. This is the year when Kaniehti:io conceived a baby boy.
I have no idea whether people in America at that time believed in reincarnation however Achilles might have thought that *something* beyond human understanding brought Ratonhnhaké:ton to him. I think this is one of the reasons he decided to give his son's name to Ratonhnhaké:ton.
I was also wondering that the assassin robe Connor Kenway received had been prepared for Connor Davenport. Achilles gave everything what his son was supposed to receive to Connor. Knowledge, thoughts, killing skill, creed of the order, Assassin blade, robe and love. Love of the male parent which Connor has never been showered with. Ratonhnhaké:ton became his new "son", probably.
All I write here are just my headcanon though. Whenever I think of the relationship between Connor and his mentor, I have tears in my eyes. So beautiful and heartwarming...but sad at the same time as Connor lost Achilles forever.
I liked Achilles a lot. Rest in peace, old man...
