The Scars Remain by ShortieBat The Scars Remain by ShortieBat
Welp... just finished AC: Revelations... and you know who I can't stop thinking about? Yep... MALIK.

I'm glad Ezio has moved on with life. He deserves a retirement :). Altair's end was... touching and somewhat depressing. But I wouldn't have pictured it any other way :')... but Malik.... MAAAALIIIIIKKK. WHYYY??? Malik's character could have had a miniseries dedicated to him. For a supporting character, IMO, he had a lot of potential as a character. I wasn't expecting much from him in ACR... but seriously? A dinky two little mentions? And he died such a horrible death! Rest in peace? NO! He died miserably! :(

But yes.... ignore me and my ranting. :P As for the drawing, I had no idea what I was drawing.

Malik definitely deserved an appearance in Revelations. Heck, I was actually expecting him to make one! I will admit, I'd become a little bit of a fan before Revelations without having played AC 1 (I was stupid, played the games out of order (2, 3, Brohood, REvelations, 1), and saved the first for last), though I became a major fan of him when I played 1.
I read about how he died on the wiki, but when I read it today in The Secret Crusade, I immediately turned off my kindle. I was so unhappy. Of all ways for Malik to die, they have to have him beheaded.

Anyways. Enough with my rambling on. This is a beautifully done picture! The scars, the expression, everything, is just amazing <3 Great job :)

YES ! EXACTLY the feelings that I had when I finished this game... I wanted to cry because to know that it is finish with Altair and Ezio... Grrrr. The end was VERY depressing !

Me too I was very very disapointed to see not Malik. VERY not happy ! No no no NO NO ! It is the best friend of Altair !!! WHY NOT MALIK !

It is a very good tribute that you do for Malik. Happily, the fan does'nt forget Malik ! Thanks you for this draw ! (I love to let message in your draw because I love your work.)
I like the scar on Malik's neck. And on his arm. The details are very interessant. (for me, details are important in a draw but you too know that :) )

Good continuation !

I cried when the part when Maria died came. Why? BECAUSE MALIK WASN'T THERE ;A;


Malik's head was supposed to be chopped off and shown to Altair before Maria died

I'm sort of glad they didn't show THAT since they didn't show him anywhere else. Either way, I would've been depressed... and I WAS :XD:
