ASSASSINS CREED IV: BLACK FLAG WEEK: Pieces of Eight Feature: After Leonardo Da Vinci Fan Art - Isis Sousa

Hail Mighty Readers and Followers of the Calloused Thumbs,
Blog friend, Isis Sousa  (who's first book The Art of Isis Sousa and Friends we reviewed here), has asked some of her art friends to join in our special feature and created some wonderful fan art for us to show you.

Here we let Isis explain how she created her own unique take on a the Assassin's Creed Myth:

"AC is a game which has amazing concept art and a great story. I love the things about the secrecy, history and in general, the themes the game gravitates around. I also like the very idea that Leonardo Da Vinci participated in the plot, as he is one of the greatest minds and artists of all times.

My FanArt is a bit out of the usual, as the game itself. I thought about making reference to the iconic hood used by game characters, on Leonardo DaVinci’s self-portrait, using a technique known as “chiaroscuro”, used by many renaissance artists - just that it is done digitally.

(Finally coming soon Isis' new book Art Collab: Artist Collaboration in the Digital Era is out soon.)
