I haven't had time to do some more finished pieces, here's a couple of pirate sketches so I don't have to look at that Art-B-Q guy anymore.

Stunning...just stunning yet again! That first guy has so much character (as do the second two goofballs), but I am just blown away by the first guy.

Perfect!

I've never been one to shiver a timber and tell, but these are far and away the coolest brown paper pirates this side of starbort.

You can't go wrong when studying Howard Pyle (the true Pirate King). Great characters and amazing use of values!

CEREAL KILLER said...

Wow man, passing through your blog always inspires me....
I really get amazed with your shadowing style, i really wonder what kind of technique you use cause your colouring and shadowing style makes me goose bumping....really loves it.
Do you use painter or photoshop?

Maybe i need to practice harder and seriously....

BEST REGARDS Ryan!
