Connor Kenway Studies by KejaBlank Connor Kenway Studies by KejaBlank
Recently i did some Connor studies to practise facial experessions of Connor. Was so much fun to do one traditional pencil portrait sketch every evening! And i thought, well let's do a collection of sketches.

So, here is it! Enjoy!
Please, no spoilers. I still play the game, thank you!

Amazing work here! Love it! The amount of detail that you have put into every section of the study does not fail to impress, a very good example of 'cross-hatch' shading using different levels of concentration and density leaves a lasting impressing of clothing. Even when not on clothes the fine shading in the face is perfect. If there is any constructive criticism I can offer is that you may want to adjust his head shape a bit as his head, this only apples to the two in the very top right hand corner in which the head seems to slant inwards into his hat giving a slightly unnaturally small look to his head. The other his forehead seems to be a bit prominent and looks square and flat. Other than that I can see no real fault. I am so sorry I had to mark it down on originality as I have seen many like this, though this is one of the, if not the best I have seen so far! Best wishes in the future -Me

YUP. He quits because he got justice for his mother, his village got freedom but gone (I dunno about America History) and America get independence also his assassination job is done.. Assassin usually not open the hood in public area but if with friends, he open at the end of games went hunt Charles Lee (Spoiler!).

These are so beautifully done, I love you for it. Ubisoft and the art guys on AC have done an incredible job on graphics and body movement and everything really. In total I've probably spend close to two hours just walking around the game world marvelling at the environments. The horse movements could use a tweaking but how often are you on a horse in this game? It might sound weird but I had a bit of fun when (spoiler) Conner was in prison (spoiler) walking around and exploring, I know there wasn't a lot to explore but still. How far along are you, percentage wise, I don't want any spoilers.

This is quite impressive. It even inspires me to make a watercolor painting of Connor.

When you think about it, Ubisoft did a splendid job on inputting the facial muscles on all of the characters.
Connor's facial expressions always put me into a daze of how expressive he is with emotions.

See, if my school offered Connor as a reseach subject, I'd care a lot more about my studies than I do now.

Seriously, though, these sketches look like something out the ACIII art book, they're so professional. Every one's true to the game model and are very in character as well. The textures on his hair and clothes are stunningly life-like, too. I don't think there's much you messed up with on these.

These are also my favourites! And "Anger at Injustice". Some facial expressions in the game often don't look like Connors face, you know, what I mean? Therefore i resigned to do a few facial expressions. And it's weird, the faces, i thought would be more easier to draw were more difficult than those I thought they are easy......o_O!

Oh yes that's a good one too
I love the way you have the clothes so nice and neat I suck at that part
yeah he pulls some funny faces
I hope you will draw the the way he looks in the end of the game. Of course not going to tell you what it is :P
