Blackbeard


Just started drawing straight ahead on this one. Didn't know what it was when I started, so the composition is a bit wonky, but whatever. Yar!

Count, you are a historian and a scholar...and a hell of a sexy dancer (clog of course).

Sweetness! I thought those guns were pipes actually. hahah. I also noticed that his right hand is "skeletalish." Is that my poor eyesight or what?? And, I like how the skulls of small children are littered about. You should do a book my friend.
