pirates rule by ebas pirates rule by ebas
i have been an art rut lately. this is only the second cover i've done in prob a month or two. and thats not much for me, as thats all i normally do. i did this one in one sitting.. as soon as my pencil touched the paper, mojo was oozing out all over the place. i tried something different this time. i have specific technique when i draw certain things and i chose to be a lil ballszy and played with the style of face i drew. the close observer could see that almost everything on the face is different. than my normal stuff. and needless to say this was prob the easiest face i've draw in a long time, no mistakes and no erasing. and those that keep up with my gallery know that i always say how much i hate drawing faces. so this was fun for me from top to bottom. nothing was really hard on this one, but after i scanned it and saw it shrunked down, i realized that i drew her ass to big, so i had to redraw it and scan it again...some might think its still too big...oh well.

im a big fan of disneys pirates trilogy, so i pulled a lot of inspiration from there, i awlays say it pays to use reference.

I love the face on this one…it seems like you may have had some specific references on this (?). Nice to see an evolutionary step in your work… excellent! : )

my only "complaint" would be that her left hand looks wrinkly like that of an old lady. but on top of this by over 9000 i am astonished on how much attention you put into details!! Just look at all those fine lines. You even took a care into shading it in lines which gives it a nice uniform texture. It's really astonishing. Heck I'm astonished!

one curiosity question
How large was the paper you made this on? because if it was even on A3 it seems a lot of work thinking small (never the less i think you'd need binoculars to draw such details on an A4 or smaller x_X)

Am I not looking at this right? It seems to be that her leg is a little out-of-place. Like, it doesn't seem like it belongs where you put it in relation to her butt...
I don't know; the lines bother me for some reason... ^^;
Sorry to whine at you about it! I love all of the details; I can see how much effort you've put into this.

I think I see where you're getting confused. You're probably thinking that her right leg is actually her left leg and she's sitting with her back to you. She is actually standing and walking up the stairs. See, You can only see her right leg in the picture (she's bending it). The left leg she has completely straight and it's hidden under..the floor (or whatever it is).

That's a lot of detail! As far as the butt goes, it's not too big! It's just like mine is all! The face is very realistic, and the freckles add a little cutesy-innocence to her, despite being a pirate holding a bomb. She could easily give someone the puppy dog look and be off the hook for whatever she did! ^_^

Wow! This is amazing. The amount of detail you put into what the girl's wearing and into the background makes me envious. I don't think I have the patience to sit there and draw in all the little stuff. But I'm trying though! haha.

This is astounding work, as with all the rest of the pieces in your gallery! :D
