Hello yet again!
As a follow-up to the promise of looking at actual Italian architecture to make things accurate for once, this is my first project over at NE: the monumental task of recreating the entirety of Venice as it appears in the video game title Assassin's Creed II.
As the first screen for this project, it feels fitting to show where I started the project from: the Thieves' Den in the corner of the San Polo district of this fictional Renaissance Venice.
Due to the densely packed nature of Venezia, I would highly suggest everyone to look at all possible angles of this screenshot (and the project as a whole). I know my last screenshot was held back because of how densely packed everything was (the problem of not enough "room to breathe") so I may have disappointed a bit with the announcement of this upcoming project. Apologies on that end! '^_^
In any case, here it is. I would be really interested to hear opinions on this from anyone who has played Assassin's Creed II, as well as everyone else who hasn't.
My first focus is to apply my current skills at their best towards making a faithful translation of the entire city in all it's renaissance glory using handpicked objects. The scale (as compared to within the actual game) may be slightly larger, I've come to notice. However, while keeping accuracy at the forefront, I'm also keeping in mind to stylise the entire city as a whole to show the ideal version of ACII's Venezia. Though this does not mean I will add foliage everywhere and give colourful tones to buildings when the actual buildings simply have none. My current philosophy for this project is to give every part of the city a spotlight. The good should come with the bad, so to speak.
This corner in particular is probably one of the most decrepit areas in the entire city (except the entire Castello district) so go into it knowing this is the neighbourhood that the thieves of Assassin's Creed II's Venice lived in.
I may have shown part of this on the NE Discord Server (as well as perhaps the TP Discord Server) so to some, part of this may not be new. In any case, I really look forward to hearing thoughts on this!
With that said, do look forward to my showing of the Dorsoduro and San Marco districts. They are quite beautiful and posh and I'll try my best to provide a lot of eye candy for those sections.
