I decided to design an undead pirate who can be seen below.
It took me ... 3 hours? I don't know , cuz I had dinner somewhere in between.

Audigy did you update that? - hot damn! very nice
Shapemaster - nice strokes - works well to make him look ghostly

eek, mine looks like the spanish punisher :banghead:

audigy - thanks!
embryotic - you think so? Wasn't really aware of that. well, that's how i usually paint ...

06 June 2007, 10:31 PM
hour and a half? Maybe?

06 June 2007, 11:52 PM
started playing around with different stuff...i think this was at about 30 min

this is my version, i know its unfinished but I havn't got the urge to complete it. Took about 3 hours, I know too long. I guess thats why I'm bored with it:)

Painter IX, unsure of time (done over several days). Best guess... ~3 hours.

Originally a concept for the actual appearance of Ponce de Leon if the fountain's effects were to wear off, but re-read the brief, and saw there was no Ponce de Leon concept listed! Oops. :p

As such, this is how an undead minion of Ponce de Leon might look under the same conditions. :)
