David Alvarez is a 2D and 3D artist employed at Ubisoft, who has worked on games like Assassin's Creed II, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Assassin's Creed Revelations and Test Drive Unlimited.

Today, we're looking at his work on the Assassin's Creed series.

Since Alvarez is able to work in both 2D and 3D, we get a good cross-section of concept art here, some of it paintings and sketches, some design work, others examples of the kind of 3D work that goes into a game as big as Assassin's Creed that you take for granted.

UPDATE - Ubisoft got in touch to let us know that the majority of images in this gallery, which appear on David's personal portfolio page, are actually the work of entire teams of artists, not just Mr. Alvarez.

I picked up assassins creed 2 for $10 on PSN complete with DLC, and now I find myself absorbed in the renaissance world and the world of assassins creed. The first one was cool, but not enough to make me really interested in the series, but AC2 is changing that.
