AC - Altair by offrecord AC - Altair by offrecord
Done in 2010 winter. This one is incredibly time-consuming! And soon I understood that I can't afford this painting process anymore... /sad
To avoid some ppl printing my works for sale, I decide to add watermark to my works.
I modified some details just based on my preference, so please don't mind the difference between this one and the original design of Altair. :P

Well...some people have noticed there's a cross hanging on his arm. That's indeed a part of rosary beads. But there's also another strand of prayer beads named misbaha, which belongs to Islam.
Altair had a Christian mother and a Muslim father. And he married Maria Thorpe who was once a Templar.
I suppose there's no need for Altair to choose any side of religions, but many impotant affairs happened in his life, were most between Christians or Muslims, due to the period he lived at. That's why I add these elements as a sign of his complicated life.

This is so stunning that I have no words. The tiny details on the leather, the metal and the materials are just absolutely breathtaking. Wowowowow. It looks so busy, yet there's a certain unity, which is what I think makes it truly amazing~ Gah good job!
