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.
---SPOILER END---

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!

EDIT: I am overwhelmed with emotions: SHE DID IT! Wrote me a story to this artwork: I want to thank :iconaltair-creed: for her fanfiction "Delicia De La Luz". THANK YOU SO MUCH! :hug: You have to read it:
Delicia De La LuzHe muttered and irritably drank from the bottle by his elbow. His eyes, blue and tired, stared at the maps in front of him spread across the large wooden table and could make no sense of what was drawn or written there. He had been at this for hours, trying to find that Spanish galleon with 10 000 reales on board. She had to be there somewhere – his information was good as to that. First hand in fact.
At that he smiled, chortling, and took another swig of rum. Smacking his lips, his mind a little fuzzy – it was late and this was not his first bottle of rum, not by a long shot – he rubbed his sand filled eyes. Glancing out of the stern window he started. It was later than he'd thought. He could just see the edge of the moon. He should have been abed long since. His glance caught the three-candle candelabrum on the table. The candles were more than half burned.
“Damn me...” he murmured, rubbing the back of his neck. He'd have to do this tomorrow. When his pa

You obviously have a mastery of human anatomy. Your color palette is extremely well chosen and your lighting is flawless. Did you study in the arts domain?

Thank you. I studied fashion- and graphicdesign. We did a lot of nude sketching in both disciplines. How to draw fabric, how to do compositions. But I guess, the most I learned in self-teaching and observing my environment ;-).

Yes, I know for a fact that a lot comes from self-teaching. I learned a lot from watching my environment too. Though I do not yet quite reach your level of expertise. I myself have a college degree (I'm not sur if it's really what it's called in English, because I'm a french-speaker from Canada) in traditional arts. It helped me improve but it wasn't so much as getting better in drawing than thinking of a deaper meaning in your work. You know, not just do random stuff but think about a message, etc...
I am now studying in a program called 3D Animation but it really is much more than just animation. It comes with drawing, digital drawing, storyboard, 2D animation, modeling, etc... My teachers were very talented artists and I leanrned a lot about how to make a picture interesting, original and appealing. I did have drawing classes with nude models, and that's always helpful.
I am hoping one day to work in the gaming industry as a concept artist, or in matte paiting, or even perharps as a storyboard artist. I have a lot of improving to do, but that's the cool thing about arts: you can never reach a "maxium" level of expertise. You can always improve.
Seeing awesome work such as yours is really an inspiration. I really hope to become as good as you are one day!

This left me speechless. You've got huge talent! It's so detailed that it looks more like a photo and of course Edward and this women shows so many emotions, passion, love, desire. I wonder how many hours or days you spend to make it looks like this. I'm amazed on these details.

Fantastic work!

this is really cool. it's clearly a beautiful, tender moment between them. plus, the painting is well done with the coloring, shading, and textures.  this is the rare 'Love scene done right' painting, with love and compassion.  but I digress... Well done. Cheers!
