Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag Concept Art by Raphael Lacoste

Senior Art Director Raphael Lacoste was kind enough to let us showcase some of his work for Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag. Raphael was the Art Director at Ubisoft on such titles as Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Assassin’s Creed and Assassin’s Creed Revelations.

To challenge himself in the film industry, Raphael stepped away from the game industry to work as a Matte Painter and Senior Concept Artist on such feature films as: Terminator Salvation, Journey to the Center of the Earth, Death Race, Repo Men, Immortals, and Jupiter Ascending.

In 2010 Raphael returned to the video game industry working as Franchise Art Director for the Assassin’s Creed franchise. To see more of his concept art for Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag be sure to check out The Art of Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag.
