Kotaku - I haven't played much of Assassin's Creed III. I put the 360 version down around an hour in, figured I'd wait and play it on PC instead.
So I have no idea who the guy above with the sharp uniform and the tiny dog is. But I like him.
These images are all the work of Remko Troost, a senior concept artist at Ubisoft Montreal. If you like what you see, you should check out more of his stuff at his personal page.
