Since AC:B is out tomorrow...

I'm going on a self-imposed hiatus from the Assassin's Creed fandom until the PC release next year. Which means no AC LJ communities, no DA groups, no fics, and no kink meme. (sobs)

This is just depressing in ways I didn't predict. See you guys again in around 5 months or so. =_= Sigh.

[fanart | AC] 2 rough comics...

Fandom: Assassin's Creed
Character(s): Cesare Borgia, Leonardo da Vinci
Rating: G
Notes: The first is a response to a request in the AC kink meme. Not quite what Anon asked for, though. :(

scythed chariot )


Notes: This second is sort of a sequel to the previous comic. Sorry for the lack of cleanup + colors. :(

Cesare's a jerk )

Ubisoft has a love affair with facial hair

AC:BROTHERHOOD MADE LEONARDO LOOK LIKE AN (adorable) ORANGUTAN.




But at least we still get awesome Leo hugs :X~ ♥





His clothes are also now Borgia-red and sporting branches everywhere. AND YEAH, LEO-TANKS!



View the entire trailer here from [livejournal.com profile] farlist. ♥ That included trailer of Alan Wake's "The Writer" also looks amazing.

leoleonardo...

My initial intention was to paint him straight up, ie just a portrait shot with the normal red hat, red cape (yeah capes!), and that rainbowfairydoublethosiery thing going on there. So I finished the base face, took a break, browsed around, and saw this from someone in the AC 4chan thread:

"10 bucks they have him in some sort of Templar attire when he's with Cesare. (Why did Leonardo in that whole Templar-type outfit that Lady Gaga wears in Alejandro suddenly come to mind? Seriously.)"

Cannot unsee anymore. Now, I have this:

still a lot of mistakes that need fixing, sorry )

...instead of his red hat.

and now I want to put Cesare somewhere in there and stuff )

+1000 amusement points for the sibling entity calling him "Moenardo" these days, though. XD

I hope I don't lose interest in this fanart before it can be finished. :/ Need to check/answer e-mails soon too, will get around to that.

the fanart that got me into Assassin's Creed

Just your garden-variety fanart recs post. I think I was doomed as soon as I stumbled across luulala's gallery. And Gobeur's. Title + art excerpt + notes follow.

Malik, Altair by luulala

~ I rarely have one favorite fanart in an entire fandom, but this one would be it for AC.

Ezio and Altair by luulala

~ more from the same artist, cross-generation slash ftw~

Look Ezio, isn't it amazing? by Gobeur

~ I had no idea that the "Leo" in this fanart was Leonardo da Vinci. Or that I'd fall so hard for the char when I played AC2. :( sorry, dude.

cutting the rest to spare your reading page... )

I wanted to include fanart involving Altair's water solubility (because one doesn't really get into this fandom without making fun of the master assassin's inability to swim), but I can't find one that I adore enough. :( Oh, well.

Also, I just figured out why Altair strikes me as funny most of the time. That damned cowl. The way it hides his eyes isn't the same as when it hides Ezio's...it's not menacing or anything. Kind of reminds me of this guy:



And it definitely doesn't help that he seems to have a perpetual question mark over his head throughout AC1. Or does stupid shit that has Malik wanting to tear out his other arm and beat him senseless with it.

There's also something to be said about projecting a player's thoughts into the char. XD

on the depiction of diverse cultures in games and such

I have very mixed feelings about people using a culture foreign to their own if it's merely for the sake of having something "ethnic" or "exotic" in a story. On one hand, it's extremely flattering that others are taking an interest -- and if the story is engaging enough, it might even get more people to do the same. On the other, it has so much potential for encouraging stereotypes and spreading wrong information.

I just have a lot of feelingz )

This poster is also awesome. Nabbed from [livejournal.com profile] nothingtrue:



And Altair apparently doesn't really mean eagle, but I'mma stop nitpicking now.
