Progress – Assassin’s Creed Parody Strip

Assassin's Creamed - Rough

This will most definitely be a topic for a series of strips. I am a gamer, and like any gamer I find certain aspects of select games to be absurd and silly, though essential for fluid gameplay. I would like to point out that these mechanics would be sorely missed if realism took its place.

I’m not sure what I’ll title the series as a whole yet. I’m sure I’ll figure something out.

Walls Are Meant For Hitting, Apparently

So I’ve mentioned that I’ve been working on my first official comic strip.

It’s a parody on the Assassin’s Creed games, which are known for their vast, detailed, locals set in ancient Europe. I’ve been penciling in the panels for the past couple days, but I found that the first panel, being an establishing shot from a perch, just wasn’t right. I toiled with it for an hour or so and decided to scrap my progress and start the background over.

Being the brain-trust I am, it finally came to mind that I could just load up the game itself and take a snapshot of a select landscape and use that as a reference. So sorry for the delay to anyone who’s actually reading this damn thing.
