This piece was done for Prince of Persia art challenge in my Persian community CGART.ir
I decided to to approach the Character to represent the reality of Persian culture. I wanted him to fit in the status of Persian legendary heroes from Shahnameh tales. Persian Princes usually were distinguished by their nobility and high status, which seemed were missed in the actual Prince of Persia franchised. Of course playing a dark rouge with incredible acrobatic skills tends to be incredibly interesting. I would like to see a transformation of the character from a royal prince to a savage warrior throughout the game, however including the real essence of Persian culture, would greatly help the representation of our people and our history.
Well still this is my own personal interpretation and not what everyone would fully agree on... but I hope everyone would at least enjoy my work.
