There is an interview on CG Record with Piotr Jaworowski the Executive Creative Director at Warsaw based agency, Ars Thanea, where he details how two giant illustrations were prepared for the world premier of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Commissioned by Ubisoft, for a promotional event featuring skyscrapers covered with gigantic the printouts, more than a dozen people worked on the project for about two months.

But it was the size, and the amount elements that proved to be the hardest part to work on. Both scenes are very complicated composition-wise.
