Assassin 1503 by arvalis Assassin 1503 by arvalis
Its been a long time coming for me to do another AC piece. It is my favorite game franchise with as far as im concerned, the best story in games. I wanted a really slick piece to show my enthusiasm for the game.

Ezio is show here standing on a cross, showing that he is both above religion and dominates it. The Abstergo Industries logo is on the cross, to unite religion, templars, and abstergo. There are three eagles in the sky symbolizing the three family members he lost to the Templars. He stands above an army of nameless, faceless assassins. He holds the Apple of Eden in his right hand to show his power. Just a few ideas i had going into this piece.

There is one easter egg, its pretty obvious. Have fun.

Assassin 1503 by =arvalis "This is a stunning piece of fanart by the deviant Arvalis for the game Assassins Creed: Brotherhood. This piece is beautifully rendered and includes symbolism that can almost represent the entire message behind the game series." ( Suggested by TornAroundtheEdges and Featured by Thunderstatement )

i saw altair!!!! this is REAL fan art. through this deviation, i can tell u are a fan of not only th game, but the story. the franchise.... the BRAND. when assassin's creed 3 comes out, i will love moving an assassin through trees no doubt. but what i am truly truly looking forward to is DESMOND. the 2012, stuff. conspiracies. religion, illuminati, the hidden messages, the questions...... that's what made assassin's creed the best THING in my life right now.

I like how, even though the Assassins are faceless, you can obviously see differences. Subtle way to show that they're united, anonymous individuals instead of the sheep the Templars want them to be.

I think I see Grandpa Alty... but why is he faceless like the rest? he has as much signifigance as Ezio himself does.
incredible symbolism. I added this to my faves a while ago, but it's nice to come back to it.

Really this is awe inspiring. Though I must admit, it also has an air of ominousness. Here you have, the wise and powerful, Ezio Auditore da Firenze holding the apple of Eden. Which, I hope, we are all aware of what it can do to the human mind. While, both physically and in skill, stand beneath him the legion of assassins. Not only this, but they all appear faceless. Faceless, to me, represented as being disposable...Though I suppose one might also say that they are all dressed differently, as to give them individuality. While only remaining faceless to increase the mystique of the legion of assassins. I am thoroughly impressed with this work, and will soon be perusing the rest of you gallery, that I might find more of this quality. Thank you very much for having created such a work.
