McFarlane takes you behind scenes of ‘Assassin’s Creed’ poster


Game publisher Ubisoft has debuted Todd McFarlane’s poster for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, accompanied by a behind-the-scenes video of the artist energetically explaining how he approached the illustration. The limited-edition poster is available only to customers who pre-order the game through GameStop.

On sale Oct. 29 in North America, Assassin’s Creed IV features a new hero, Edward Kenway, who falls from privateering to piracy during the 18th century before becoming embroiled in the ancient war between the Assassins and the Templars.

I think the poster is great and it’s a pity McFarlane doesn’t draw more these days.

Wow! McFarlane is still the best!

From what I’ve seen so far, Assassin’s Creed 4 is quite amazing. I’ve played the first (I think 15 minutes) of gameplay from a demo I’ve found. I’ve even played through a complete sea-fight. If anyone else is interested, here’s the webpage
(takes a few minutes to go through the steps, but totally worth it).

Mirin McFarlane’s setup there. Awesome artwork too. It is a shame he doesn’t draw more often.
