I’ve taken a break from retooling my previous pirate themed post, Scurvy Dogs, so that I could give you a sneak peak of how the picture is shaping up.

I was pretty pleased the way these two characters (three if you consider the perched monkey) came out so I thought why not share it with you guys.  This has been a piece that has been on the back burner for a while, but I hope to have a finished product very soon.  Make sure you stay tuned.

Update:  I have just read that Naval Forces have killed the three Somali Pirates who had been holding an American Captain captive.  I must say that while my old school pirates were a sketchy lot (no pun intended), at least they had their charm.
