If pictures tell 1,000 words, then artist Giles Belloeil is one of the most articulate men around.
Witness these splendid concept artworks he created for Assassin's Creed: Revelations, which appear on his personal online portfolio.
Take a look through the gallery to discover the simply sumptuous art on display, which obviously shaped many of Revelations' dreamy levels, vistas and locations.
We wouldn't mind seeing some of these fine pieces hanging from our own walls. Let us know what you think in the comments field below.
Thanks to Kotaku for the spot.
