Really nice paintings! I'm really happy to see you used Artrage, I think it's about time it gets some credit to creating that really real painterly look that you were able to pull off.

Hi Martin, Thanks! Are you joining the Challenge this time?

Thanks Paul! The team really had a blast making this game, such a comfort to see the great reception by the public.

pheyl: Yeah, you should definitely go to see the exhibition, it ends this Saturday. It is an unique opportunity to see selected concept artworks from Assassin's Creed I, II and Brotherhood. The next stop for the exhibition is in Quebec.

Timmay, DiasDesign, jsn, wszhou, Seldt: I am really happy to know your positive feedbacks about the game and the art behind the game, the making of the AC Brotherhood was a great adventure for the whole team.

Remko, Djampa, javiermolina, nettonik, Manzi, DoubleSz, EldarZakirov, Anorexxx, Mikecal, spkr9, juanmigueltomala, ROBOTTANK, thanks all for dropping by and all the kind words. Really glad to hear that you guys like the game. :D

About the brush strokes, the final result is a mixture of customized brushes in Photoshop and retouches in Artrage, also the final sharpen effect in Photoshop really enhanced that traditional brush/palette knife impression on the image.

I really love the colour palette and the gentle lighting you used, was that your personal choice or art directed?. Quite unusual, in a positive way :) Lovely candle lights, floor reflections and misty feeling to the whole image. Only small critique would be: adding bit more detail to the far background could even give more depth I think - like more brighter tones on the lower sky or some additional hi-lights on the trees suggesting leaves in direct light. Well done overall thou! I'm also big fan of the game and of Ubisoft. Seeing pictures like that and their products in general makes people want to join that, without a doubt, cool team.

Some absolutely spectacular work on display here: enough to get me to log back into CGSociety since being absent for 2 years!

Having recently completed AC: Brotherhood, seeing this development work really puts the game environments into a different light: it's great to see how the various environments started off life, compared to their in-game counterparts.

I'm almost saddened to see that the painted style of this work didn't make it into the final game (of course I do understand the implications of such a task!).

p.s. those reflections rock my socks off.

By the way…can anyone tell me, why the new Assassin's Creed isn't available for mac? :(

This is Spot on- not The same level of Course, as in game, but the same atmosphere and feeling, Im hoping to get Art Rage sometime Too.

Btw, Can you make something similar for Altair? Near the castle of assassins, or something?
