How to kiss an Assassin

I totally fall in love with a photo a few days ago. And suddenly there was an idea born. And this is the result of it, an artwork with Connor and Aveline kissing. I loved the idea of making a couple scene, because noone else did one with that two until now. So I decided to do so. Maybe it's a intimate date after a battle and they couldn't wait to rip each others clothes off.:love:

So imagine yourself, what would happen next ... and ... enjoy it!

EDIT:In consequence of a few problems I decided to close comments. Now I give it a try and open it again!

Here I will give a few reasons, for why I did close the comments here for a while:

Many deviants complain about the fact, that I used a photo as reference to do that picture... what is correct. I never denied this. At the beginning I posted a link to that photo. Then a handful people where bothered by it, how I can do so, although I have asked the photographer for permission! So, no matter if I post a link or not, they are bothered, too.
So I decided to close comments.

But I want to remind those people by something:
So many people use reference for their art also here on deviantart (and also highskilled artists, I know from here), the others only don't know, that there are photos for reference used, even traced, because this photos are not from deviantart and everyone sighed "AH" and "OH" and have lack of knowledge. Reference is for learning, practising to get better. Even Leonardo Da Vinci did this.
I know a lot of users here, who do this and don't comment that rude as some do/did here.

Well, these days I got the feeling. it is some kind of sport to turn down other artists. Must be very satisfying to spread gossip! A grown up would ask me directly in a note, but I know the "gossip-way" is so much easier. And it is so much more fun! And it works fabulous, as I can see. It's like a bad worldpress, in which the most peole believe with pleasure, when they have no life or for lack of anything better to do. Instead of dig out the real important cases:
Many people steal artworks from here for facebook, youtube videos or another video plattforms or rather using original pictures from others for their own like wallpapers from great corporations and post it on tumblr without permission everywhere (of course, without crediting the artist), or even worse, sell it ... and that is not ok!

"No, turn down the mouse instead of the fox". Otherwise it would cause problems."

But is it here about reference or tracing? I don't think so. It's just pretense for lack of anything or jealousness.
But is that really the point? I won't never sell this picture, I just do another artwork on base of this wonderful kiss photo (link posted below), that people can enjoy, nothing more. I know about, what is allowed in this case and what is not. It's my business every day! A proverb says: Ignorance is no excuse in law. I use it as reference (as a few artist have done in deviantart in past, because that photo is really really amazing). And btw, I don't rely on high praises or something for it, coz it's not my best work but a quick inspiration, that's all. I hope I have make clear my point of view. If you have further questions, leave me a note and don't discuss here in childish talk. I would appreciate that. Thank you.

BTW, ... when I have nothing to say or have lack of knowledge I better have to shut up!

This is so cute, and I love the art style. I love the detail of the hair and the little moustache that the guy has.

Hey, ?I read your explanaition, and I totaly support you , I'm not proffesionla, but what I think is 80 to 90 procent of art here is based o n reference, and I'm happy that you shere your insiration  photo,  ... getting to the picture itself althouge I can get any better than you did, , I think hat you can work a bit on girls shoulder look  abit flat to me, and the secound thing what drew my attention is hands , I would make it softer, tring to more focus on the kiss itself, with main yhoughts thas about it, tatto looks a bit fake too , but it not as important as other think I meanton befor, anyway keep going and all the best,

don't be bothered by those people. they have nothing else useful to do instead they complain at anyone. you know whats wrong? NOT using reference when making art. if you wanna evolve, you look for alot of reference. thats how you learn. its one of the basics of art besides always have a pencil and a piece of paper in your pocket. thats what they taught me in art-school. hell, even the greatest artist of renaissance used reference. the only thing you can do for these people is just mute them. replying to them is a waste of energy and time and just ruins your mood of the day.

I drew this a few years ago
In the meantime I know that some people are just jealous. And you are right: it ruins not just a day but many nights and nerves. Thanks for your comment. :hug:

Keja your work is amazing! You have been the inspiration for me to pick up my pencils again. I always though that I was no good as an artist cause I use a lot of reference materials. However your art has shown me how it can help at improving my own art. Thank you for that.
