Spring is finally here, and even under the terrible circumstances affecting the world, members of the Assassin's Creed Community are working on projects from home.
Here are our top 6 projects to keep an eye on this Spring, in no particular order.
6: Modern Day Fan Art
Check out this fan art for a new present day Assassin's Creed character by Valery Black.
The hood resembles Charlotte de la Cruz, but the robes keep a traditional appearance, giving the character an overall classic look.
The artist has named her Assassin Alith, meaning 'seasoned warrior' in old English. Alith would have fit in perfectly to the Assassin's Creed Titan comics series, or even the follow up series titled Uprising.
So far, only two images have been released, but we're hoping to see a lot more from Valery in the future!
5: Eagle sculpt
Next up we have a sculpted eagle, which has been handcrafted by Instagram user Valara Atran.
The piece will be used as part of a Spartan helmet, taking it's inspiration from Assassin's Creed Odyssey's eagle companion Ikaros.
This alone would take a great amount of time, and the level of detail required truly is incredible. You can begin to imagine what the finished product will look like.
The next stage of the process is likely a careful first coat of paint, so don't forget to follow Valara on Instagram to follow her work.
4: Kassandra Sketch
Considering this is Instagram user Artophily's first ever Assassin's Creed drawing, it's fair to say it's going well.
The shading really gives the artwork a sense of depth, created using only pencils.
Although the sketch is a WIP, we can't wait to see the finished piece!
Head over to Instagram and drop a like, and maybe they'll cover more Assassin's Creed characters in the future!
3: Assassin's Creed Art Sale
All of the profits raised go towards our Assassin's Creed Community Fundraiser, which has so far raised over £400 for The Italian Red Cross, who are doing everything possible to battle the CoronaVirus.
The prints are only on sale for a limited time, so act fast Assassins!
2: Ezio Sketch
We've got another WIP Assassin's Creed sketch on the list, this time by commnity artist Fernando Huitz.
Ezio is a fan favourite, and rightly so, and it's great to see young artists bringing the character to life.
The hood is particularly detailed on this sketch, and it's a great representation of Ezio's AC Brotherhood robes.
Keep an eye on Fernando's Instagram for the finished piece!
1: Templar Costume
Striking a solemn pose, he looks ready for battle in his Templar Knight outfit.
Caleb is a huge fan of history, and regularly attends events such as Sarasota Medieval Fair, so if you see a Templar walking around, know that he's friendly and not an enemy of the Assassins!
A ton of work goes in behind the scenes to make costumes, and Caleb is an extremely talented member of the cosplay community.
We can't wait to see what he's got planned next!
That's a wrap on our countdown, but hopefully you enjoyed this small glimpse in to the world of Assassin's Creed Community Projects.
Stay safe all.
