My name is Steven Hancock, online I go by Palsa.
I draw and write as a hobby, as well as make 3d models and sprites; though I hope to improve myself considerably. ^_^
My interests include: anime, manga, games (primarily Gust RPG's and Assassin's Creed), and ancient history.
I can generally be found on A Reyvateil's Melody, (new board).

Interests
Greetings!

I just finished Assassin's Creed: IV last night, and I have to say, that it's become my new favorite in the series. ^_^
[SPOILER WARNING!! - START]
I think that the story is what really drove my interests, plus: Edward Kenway has a lot of the traits from the previous characters, so it doesn't take long for him to grow on you.
One of the things that I also liked about the game: when Blackbeard (Edward Teach/Thatch) is concerned, most historians have a tendency to focus more on the legend than the actual man, but ACIV covered both the legend (Blackbeard) and the man (Edward Teach), and to be honest, I think that Ubisoft's perspective of him is closer to reality than what most academics tend to buy into.
Anyway, the story is pretty sad, because most of the people that befriend Kenway (with exceptions to Adéwalé, Anne Bonny and the Assassins) end up dead in some way or another, and you really feel his sense of loss as the game advances.
[SPOILER WARNING!! - END]
The mechanics are far less glitchy then that of the previous games, I can only recall several glitches occurring at all through the entire game.
As for the open world at sea, it is absolutely EPIC!!! :D
Everything about the game is gorgeous, and I have the XBOX 360 version, which I'm sure is beneath all of the others. ^^;
One of the best features that they implemented in ACIV is the music, it is outstanding, and there are so many songs, from taverns to sea shanties, it really adds to the experience. ^_^
There are also some indications from Ubisoft that they may be planning to make an open world pirate game, that is outside of the Assassin's Creed games; whether if this is a spinoff taking place in the same universe, or an unrelated series is unknown at this time.
Several other things that I'm looking forward to are:
Freedom Cry (a downloadable addon for ACIV that will be released soon, covering Adéwalé's arc).
Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD (Yay!  their finally going to release this for the 360! :D).
Watch Dogs, though it's unrelated to the Assassin's Creed games, it is another game coming out from Unisoft that I'm looking forward to. ^_^


On to other things. . .
This is a fast update on the portrait for Lilith, I've started sketching out the dress, and have made several adjustments to the body proportions:



Special thanks goes to :iconkariavalon: for her suggestions on the proportions. ^_^

I might take a couple of days off from working on this, as the story from ACIV is still fresh on my mind, and I haven't been able to focus on my own works as of late. ^^;
