Assassin's Creed 3 Connor Digital Painting by Hax09 Assassin's Creed 3 Connor Digital Painting by Hax09
A digital painting I painted of Connor Kenway (Ratonhnhaké:ton)
I started this about a week after the promo pics came out but never had time to finish it. And now I've finally got it done.

You should check out my Assassin's Creed Revelations painting. That one in my opinion is the most detailed painting I have done.

Your comment means a lot. I usually don't like my own artwork much but this is one of those rare ones I'm actually proud of. I think what you said is probably the biggest liability when my work is online. The fact that most think it's a screenshot or a wallpaper and choose to simply ignore it. I can't believe that making my work look too realistic would be a problem. :(

Oh well. You noticed. And many others did too. And for that I'm very thankful. Thank you for taking the extra time to give my work a second look. :D

The pleasure is mine :) :hug:

I hope you won't stop doing too realistic works because it would be an irreparable loss. Like I said, one day I hope to see Altair from you and maybe Edward :). Because Edward made by Ubisoft is not my favorite. He's next assassin or pirate (whatever) with face like a model.

If I have this drawing in resolution of my laptop I would use it as a wallpaper, because it's much better than this made by Ubisoft.

True. I won't stop with the realistic drawings. That's something the rest of the world is going to have to get used to. They should be more perceptive in their viewing. :D

Wow that's amazing because Altair is actually my favourite Assassin too. I think it would be easy to pick Ezio because of the journey we've been through with him but Altair has a very mysterious quality about him. I like how he's always been this accomplished Assassin (Master Assassin/Grand Master at such a young age) from the start whereas Ezio has had to learn his skill through hard work. Of course it's obviously the way Altair was written because I'm sure at some point he was an amateur too. But I'm glad Ubisoft never showed us that side to him. Makes him look more experienced. I guess I wouldn't be able to make his face look too old because he's always been presented as a younger more agile Assassin (except in the memories in Revelations) Not entirely sure what to make of this new Pirates theme. Pirates and Assassin's are two completely different things. Their in-your-face method doesn't fit the strike-from-the-shadows code that Assassin's follow. Sorry for the huge essay but I just needed to say it :D

Does my deviation not show up in full resolution. I'll see if it can be changed in settings.

My mistake, this drawing is very big "Assassin's Creed Revelations" is too small. Sorry I wrote about resolution under wrong drawing :).

That's why I start watching you. I want to see other protagonists from your point of view :).

Anyway, did you read book about Altair "The Secret Crusade"? The story show us events from Assassin's Creed I, Assassin's Creed Bloodline and a little from the author. It's the best book from the series because it sticks together. It's not just story taken only from the game step by step like the other books from the series. It's a book for everyone not only for fans of the series.

"I like how he's always been this accomplished Assassin"
That's why I like him so much, he's true Assassin, trained properly and he really believes in creed and live by the creed.

Ezio, I used to like him I really do, but now, well I don't know. I like older version of him, more mature version. When he seek the knowledge not the revenge.
I love whole series. When there was a time for Ezio I liked him now his just another Assassin.
I can't forget about Altair and his vision of the order. I think Ezio destroyed it when he decided to leave. Altair never leaves. Ezio gave up. He chooses his life while Altair was able to have his private life and to be a Grand Master.

Connor is another story, I hate him from beginning. I liked his father, Haytham. But when story ends I start to like him. He really gained his position of one of my favorite assassin.

New Assassin's Creed can be a great game but Edward is not an Assassin, he's a pirate so the story is not stick together. I don't know what to think about that game. The game is about Assassins and his not one of them. We'll see how they solve it.

Now I have to sorry about my English, you are from UK I'm from Poland so my English isn't perfect especially when I write too much I make a lot of grammar mistakes, but I hope you generally will understand what I want to say :D

I haven't read 'The Secret Crusade' yet. Although I have read Renaissance and Brotherhood which feature Ezio's adventures in ACII and Brotherhood. The book is slightly different (only slightly) but I'll give 'The Secret Crusade' a read as well soon.

What I am currently reading is a book called Alamut. This is apparently the book that Assassin's Creed and Prince of Persia where based on. I've never played Prince of Persia before so I wouldn't know but Assassin's Creed is very similar to this book. The characters of Altair and Al-Mualim are very close in resemblance to the characters of Alamut. I can't wait to see how more similarities between the book and the game.

Connor is actually my least favourite Assassin. His whole attitude was very off-putting. I didn't like how shut off he was and how little he cared about anything but his own gain. He never really cared much for the Creed. Only for his people and his own means. Haytham is a great character. I thought they did really well with him. If only he wasn't a Templar then things might have been different. :(

What's confusing me about this new character Edward is how he fits into this whole Assassin's set up. I'm willing to forget that he's a pirate. But doesn't his son Haytham grow up to be a Templar? How is it that his father is an Assassin and he is a Templar? (and further down the line his son Connor is an Assassin) It's all very confusing. Ubisoft should have thought it through a bit more.

Oh and your English is perfect. I couldn't even tell you made any mistakes. :)

"Oh and your English is perfect. I couldn't even tell you made any mistakes."
You're too kind :D

I'm a book lover. Sometimes I've got a huge problem when I have to choose between book and game because I don't have time for both. I read all books from the series, no sorry, I can't get AC: Forsaken. Anyway The Secret Crusade is the best from the series and I don't think Forsaken would be better.
You made me curious with the book Alamut. The problem is I'll have to order it from England and read in English. It's not a big problem but I think that without dictionary I won't understand it fully. Well if it's worth it, why not :)

Connor at the beginning was egoist but at the end he changed his vision of the world (I think). But the truth is that (in my opinion) he's not real Assassin. He didn't take an oath, he had no idea about the Creed, about his ancestors (he doesn't have any vision of Altair, Ezio or Desmond), there's no brotherhood, only bunch of random people from the street, without proper training (because who trained them?), and there wasn't hideout. AC III is like side story.

Edward must have been terrible father, that's why his son become Templar (this is my theory lol). But seriously, from what I read Edward is not an Assassin, he was trained by Assassin but never become one of them. So Haytham choose his own way (someone who read the book wrote that Haytham saw death of his father maybe Assassin killed him because he compromise the brotherhood). I think Connor becomes the Assassin only because Achilles trained him everything could be different if Haytham become tutor of Connor.

Alamut is supposed to be a really great book. Not just because of it's link with Assassin's Creed but on it's own it serves as a very interesting read. I can't fully recommend it to you because I haven't finished it yet so I don't know if it's earned it's praise and high rating. Once I finish it then I'll know for sure. But so far it's been really interesting to read. I can start to see how and where certain characters would have been influenced and who fits in where between the book and the game.

It's true what you say about Connor. He wasn't a true Assassin. You NEVER hear about his link with Altair and/or Ezio. (Although it must have existed somehow because Desmond was able to view the memories) He doesn't even respect the Creed properly. He needed to pay Achilles more respect but didn't. And as you mentioned, recruits almost didn't exist. Just people off the street. It felt as though only one man (Achilles) was promoting the Assassin's. The rest of the time it was Templars vs. The Natives vs. The British.

I liked Haytham. It was quite a shock when they killed him off earlier than expected. I always thought he'd be the final enemy. Wasn't even sure how they'd handle his situation with him being the main character's father and Head Templar at the same time.
My favourite moment in ACIII was when it was revealed that Haytham was a templar all along. It was all very cleverly done because when you look back at it not ONCE do they mention Assassin's or Templars. You simply assume it's Assassins. Maybe Haytham chose the Templar way as a sign of defiance against the group who killed his father (Assassin's)

Thanks Whitney!

It took me approximately 12-15 hours. That's with all the sketching, black and white shading and background included. I'm not sure on the exact number though because I worked on it on/off :D I wanted the painting to be very detailed too. I usually spend more time on Assassin's Creed related art :)

Yeah I love making my paintings detailed. It used to be my weakest point before but now I love doing it.
It's funny you should mention epic scene because I was loosely working on something Assassin's Creed based a few days ago which is more dynamic than this painting. Watch this space! :D

But yeah thanks again. Your approval means a lot to me :)

Yeah I know right?
The music is fantastic. I don't even think it matters whether you have played the game or not at that point. I think fans and non-fans can appreciate the soundtrack to Assassin's Creed.

As for everything else, its so artistic! Every single game creates a very different atmosphere to the last. You can almost imagine how things must have been at the time. The cities are so alive! I guess with such an awesome game I could only do it justice by taking my time and doing an awesome painting to go with it. If you need tips I've created a tutorial here which is basically the same technique.[link] Also if you need additional help let me know. I'll do what I can to answer your questions! :D

I know what you mean. It's one of the reasons I post my WIP. Mainly because no one would believe I painted it. That might also be the reason most people ignore it too thinking it's just a wallpaper re-posted on my account.
