Like always, when I play Assassins Creed, I have to do an obligatory Love picture. This time I was flirting with the idea to do a love scene on the round table in the Captains cabin on the Jackdaw. To do that I needed a lot of screenshots references to imagine the whole cabin, Edwards tattoos, the crates, the model ship, the bags, the tables and the ropes, the maps, weapons and of course, the RUM
. And the research of the love pose that suit the characters (coz Edward has a fiery temper and rushes in dodgy adventures). That is always a hard one to find the right one.
At the beginning of my painting I was not sure, who this woman is that Edwards is holding in his arms so firmly.
And now, after I finished the game, I am just more confused about the fact, that I dunno, who this woman is.
----SPOILER---- First I thought of Anne Bonny, but after I have seen that dramatic scene with her loss of her babyboy in the game I came to the conclusion, that is wrong to use her. Then there is Caroline, his wife. After I have palyed the game and read the story, this scene never would happen with Caroline. Mary Read also wasn't an option, she is too much a friend to Edward and the fact, that she died in prison is a reason not to use her, too. After all, Edward was still a married man with "greater purposes than Rum and Plunder".
And what about his second wife? Tessa? He met her after his Pirate life, so ... damn. .. I dunno, who this gal is. Not a trashy whore, of course.She has to be one, Edward loves deeply. I can only imagine, that he get to know her the years after Caroline had died and before Tessa. A woman, he fell in love with, but died under weird circumstances, like all woman of Edward had. Dramatic, like all things in Edwards life.
To cut a long story short, this is my Lovepic. I hope, you enjoy this! It is my most complex Lovepic so far. And I hope a good friend will do a fanfiction of this, I am more than eager to read it!
