Fat character in Assassin's Creed Brotherhood  
Daughter Laura sent along this character model sheet art for "Juan Borgia" in the recently-released game Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. While I don't play myself, I have watched the kids play its predecessor Assassin's Creed 2, as well as a little bit of Brotherhood. AC2 impressed me with its incidental crowd character designs, which included both men and women of varying sizes, including fat people (and some pretty attractive fat men.) Laura, who's played ACB all the way through, tells me that there's even more diversity among the men in that game. Am looking into ways to get still shots from the X-Box 360 version of the game(s).

The ram's head over the crotch on Juan Borgia is because he's attending what's basically a Bacchanalia. Hence the while the lady on the left is a courtesan, the lady on the right is one of the party-goers. There are also guys in leaf-loincloths with horned masks.

The man has a ram's head on his crotch because it's a ~fancy party~!

The clothing, hat and jewelery probably are probably not on the base model because the base model contains the stuff that doesn't move (no jiggly moobs for gamers, not yet) while the hat and loincloth do move in the game (waving in the wind).

That makes a lot of sense... Though in real life I'd expect a big cod-piece thingy like the ram's head to bounce around as someone walks, it's probably better that it doesn't move.
