Hidden Blade by Kazuki99 Hidden Blade by Kazuki99
Concept drawing for Dracelix's assassin's hidden blade.
We where talking about it hours ago. about his assassin's clothes XD then it went on to the type of gaunt we would design for it. So this is what i sketched out and slapped some color so it looks presentable :3
I did some research on the anatomy of the hidden blade. well sort of anatomy since it said mostly how it worked instead of how to make it.

A. A view of the underside of the gaunt with the hidden blade seen. along with the activation ring thing worn on the pinky finger x3. that you use your pinky finger to pull so the blade would slide out. ( and if your not careful like Altair your ring finger would get cut off) this is mostly hidden by the assassin by wearing gloves.

B. A view of the part of the gaunt where you'll see the metal and design. erm.. some of the detail on the metal might be changed like *coughtherandomeyecough*

C. this time a side view of the gaunt with a poison needle shooter thing that also shoots a pistol but strangely only has a barrel to fit needles. or i'm getting it wrong....
anyway in here the hidden blade is strapped to the user's arm and the shooting thing is held/supported by the leather of the gaunt. :3 to use the poison needle all you need to do is pull the trigger which appears to be the tiny eagle head ( not the one on the metal design on top)

so.. the design on this might not be final since it's still subjected to change x3

its looking quite great, i may make a few tiny changes to this, but it is more or less what i was thinking of.

also, with the poison needle, it is basically a thin poiont to the side of where the blade is on the wrist, and extends out a small amount and pricks someone to inject the poison.
but in the book, apparently it is an entire hidden blade hollowed out with poison, which ezio swaps out with his regular blade when needed before a mission.

also, altair was part of the hashashin most likely, which were the early assassins, and i think it was the joining ritual to have your ring finger cut off.
also, leonardo explained in ac2 that the hidden blade design needed the removal of the finger, for it to work, but leo adjusted it for ezio so he wouldn't have to.

yayz :3 glad it is.

It is? the poison needle looked different on the works on Ezio's gaunt.

Oh okay, so it's really on purpose.
Wow, so that's why ezio's ring finger didn't get cut off and why the way he activates it seem different

yeah, the ring finger removal was how novices in the hashashin oder would become true assassins and then receive their blade.
but altair wrote in his journal that his assassin oder needs to go underground and be more secretive. like the templars are, and since the missing ring finger was an easy way to detect an assassin, altair highered the blade from the wrist so it wouldn't come in contact with the hand as easy.

btw, here is a more modern hidden blade design, than the one altair used:

and you can add the gun onto it aswell.

The color fits it quite nicely. :D And, lol at Altair's fingers. The sad thing is, this would probably happen quite often back then.

Or, you know, what they said about them cutting off their fingers on purpose was true. lmao

yea, some people do it on purpose. i just wonder if altair did it on purpose or it was a mistake he made xDDDDD

I think I'd like it more if it was a mistake, just to knock him into a more human sort of view. XD (But even then, he's still pretty freaking badass.)

yea.. me too otherwise if it's on purpose he might not seem human anymore because he's so smart and awesome

At times, it's quite easy to forget he is. XD Ezio is... quite easily believable, ain't that a surprise?

not really....
since most the equipments ezio uses are all designed by altair and replicated by leo..

I was talking about how his personality is portrayed, actually. XD

Speaking of Leo, do you remember that comic doubleleaf made with Ezio going "OMG!" at the bottom about twenty years later?
Historical accuracy is hilarious that way. XD

Is the assassin who uses them affiliated with birds in any way?

It's quite popular here in Singapore. But it's not really the kind of game people rave about to their friends. :/
