Pirate



The word 'SEA' is the Illustration Friday selection this week. How about a dashing and half dressed swashbuckler to come to your rescue this time ? This was a lil' throwback to my beginings in art and dynamic human form ( thanx Hogarth !)

It feels good to do some old fashioned beefy muscle structure again...

Love the movement! Nice loincloth, as well… Rescued by a half naked swashbuckler? Oh, yes! Sign me up. Do feel absence of pirate jewelry… And how is your line of demonic sparkly accessories coming along, anyway? Lily.

He's a cavalier on a budget, Lily and Lucy White.
As for the demonic decorations, the Infernal Revenue Service has been making things too hot to persue such endevours...

:-D

I hear ya, Kev. I got lazy (a typical condition to us artsy fartsy types) and didn't include a background.

Glad to hear from ya again dude!

i am happy to know your beautiful sketch have made you glad steve.

Yeah, it's kinda suspicious when you run around like that in public, Isay!
:-D
I had some fun with this lil' excursion.

Where's his puffy shirt? Nice musclature, you did a great job, Steve. Self portrait?

Ok, now that I've recovered from the loin cloth, this is really good stuff. I thought more Zeus when I first saw him. The muscles, the pose, excellent!

I'm always delighted to see your work, Steve. This is another truly fine drawing, you just keep getting better and better all the time!

This is for the ladies, Joe !

Every once in a while I get something right, Ginger.
All the lines just fall into place!
:-)

That would be a great trick, Catraven !

Yum indeed, Anonymous !
:-D

Thanx Detlef ! But this is far from a self portrait.
:-)

I'll get you a glass of water, Kathleen !
:-D

Call it the 'divine' human form, Janey...
:-D

I still have plenty of room for improvement, Mick. Belive me !
