The Beautiful, If Stabby Art of the Assassin's Creed Series

With Assassin's Creed Revelations out recently (and starring in its own Fine Art), I thought it'd be a good time to take a look back on some of the incredible art from the series we've yet to feature here on Kotaku.

The pieces you're about to see are the work of three men: Maxime Desmettre, David Levy and Herve Groussin. They cover the first few games in the series and are, to the last, amazing.

There are none from Revelations - usually most concept art is kept under lock and key until after a game is released - but you'll find plenty from both Altair's travels in the Holy Land as well as Ezio's travels through Italy.

To see the larger pics in all their glory (or so you can save them as wallpaper), right-click on the "expand" icon on the main image above and select "open in new tab".

Fine Art is a celebration of the work of video game artists. If you're in the business and have some concept, environment or character art you'd like to share, drop us a line!
