Awesome work here. I especially like the lighting, from the sheen of the moon, the moonlight on the buildings and the fires blazing in the streets.
For the sake of overly-dramatic confrontational cut-scenes and boss-fights, the AC game series continues to lean further and further into portraying the Assassins as 1-man armies instead of the strike-from-the-shadows-and-disappear-without-being-detected operatives they constantly claim to be. Many times, it seems the only reason that the Assassins were able to eliminate their Templar foes is because the Templars, instead of being discreet and keeping their distance, would put themselves within proximity of the Assassin to deliver a dramatic villainous speech. And it looks like this game is going to push that even further. Whatever. So long as the story continues to be intriguing and the characters interesting, I'll continue to follow the series (although AC IV just felt so lacklustre in terms of the plot)
Once again, I have to compliment the lighting. Anyone wishing for an example of good lighting in artwork should take a look at this.
