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.

*SPOILERS AHEAD*
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;

*spoilers*

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:

I hated Abbas so much when I heard in the game that Malik was killed by him.
Then I read The Secret Crusade and hated Abbas even more, poor Malik didn't deserve to die like that ;A;

Yeah, they could have done much better with him.
Before knowing Malik I thought Severus Snape from the Harry Potter series was the bravest fictional character ever. Now, in my opinion, he's just the bravest fictional wizard ever.

I don't know what to think about Malik's story.
I mean i don't know what is right and wrong about his story. Not gonna read the "secret crusade" because it's not even canon.
And op wikia, idk how much is from the book and how much is for real.

This is beautiful and those scars are beautifully drawn! Q_Q

And gosh! I agree on that, I was perplexed enough after all that epicness in the end of Revelations but really, no Malik? AT ALL? I mean he plays an important role and I somehow couldn't stop thinking about him also being there, trough all those memories you played as Alta´r. What he would have said and done and such (while he still lived) *_* couldn't help thinking about it

I actually thought they would have a sequence where Alta´r rescues Malik form the prison which happened in the book! But they just seems to have ignored that part.

Yea, but no, they didn't even have the part where Abbas throws Maliks head to Altair which happened right before Altair accidentally kills Maria.

Mh, i agreed.
And the drawing... Mahhh.... If he recover his finger, and his arm here.... If I see well... His head too?
Oh... no no no no no no ;____; It's just terrible ;_______; *start to cry ;____;*
When Altair says that malik died... it was the turn of my sister to play, and malik was (with yusuf) her favorite character.... She gave me instantly the game, to end the sequence...
Eyh! me too, i was crying in silence D: !

Agreed! Malik, next to Ezio, probably has the most personality out of all the AC characters in my opinion. He deserved better Ubisoft....
