Hello again. I was on holidays for the last few days and so I'm just sneaking in this picture for last weeks Illustration Friday subject "Captain". It's a rough sketch with some basic colors behind it of something I believe most of us drew this week. Pirates are just about my favorite things, chasing Science Fiction, The Incredibles and Mexican Food. They have so much character and have so many great stereotypes.




Take care,

-Mike

PS. I would like to thank everyone for their very kind comments last week. It's very encouraging! Thank you!

Wow - great stuff here - it's a standout for me from the several pirates I've seen. I like the way you rendered the piece - nicely done!

Fantastic character, I love the details. Can't say he looks like he's been the luckiest pirate ever, but he definitely looks like he's having a good time.

wonderful job, mike! :)

love his double pistols and he looks like he'd use them that way, too! :)

Great drawing, beautiful textures. But something tells me he's not so great at being a pirate...

Scott said...

I like your hook handed, peg-legged, patch wearing pirate better than mine. I really like that the background looks like a ragged treasure map. Great charactor.
