As I'm sure many of us have learned in the past, gaming's a pretty fantastic medium to look to for inspiration. Developers go out of their way to craft beautiful worlds, incredible narratives, and fantastic music and characters. It's not surprising, then, that we've seen so many thriving fan-art communities pop up, helmed by a host of talented artists.
UK-based Kirk Quilaquil- who goes by the moniker "Ninjatic" is one such artist.
His blog, Artblah!, features a wide range of impressive artwork,most of which has a science fiction/fantasy bent to it. Recently, he's been on something of an Assassin's Creed kick. Specifically, he's found himself enchanted with the high-seas swashbuckling of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. Over the course of the past two weeks, he's uploaded a series of professional-looking tribute pieces, all of which were created in a matter of hours using only Photoshop and a graphics tablet. Check 'em out below.
I'd highly recommend checking out his blog, Artblah!. There, you'll also find links to his YouTube page, Deviantart profile, Personal Blog, and Instagram. Have I mentioned he also livestreams, plays tribute songs, and writes music?
