Week two. Assassin's Creed

This is a photo of a piece of art done by Mahiro Maeda, formly of studio Ghibli and currently a very prominent director and character designer of Gainax that was exhibited in Tokyo's Spiral Garden gallery for the Assassin's creed art exhibit. For those who don't know Assassin's creed is a game that takes place in renaissance Italy. The artist chose to do this piece in that very recognizable renaissance renaissance cannon and is formatted like a stained glass window. Each panel tells part of a story. Maeda chose to portray the historical figures in the way they were portrayed in the art of their time instead of how they looked in the game. If you looked up art of Rodrigo Borgia (Pope Alexander VI) that's how painters painted him as.
