View Full Version : Character : A Pirate of the Caribbean

07 July 2003, 11:05 PM

In light of the recent revival of all that is swashbuckling and dangerous, all I have to say is YEEeearre, and
enjoy this pic that was very fun to paint, trying to capture a personality and
expression of "What...take me on....hah!!", a type of character that is
both a good leader, yet highly dangerous, a painting that explores a new
technique for me, and crits and comments are welcomed and appreciated.

Thanks, and enjoy!

Very nice painting!

My only note is that the perspective of the barrel in the forground is way off.:p

JVI i k e l - Thank you very much!

xzevlin - The size of this one ended up 24 x 36. My biggest one in the past has only ended up around 11 x part of the challenge of this was making a big painting, and not getting lost when looking at it. Real fun to work bigger, heh.

Rosh - Thanks. You're prolly right with the barrel. It was a tough scene to create accurate perspective with. I had first painted the character on the deck, and I knew I needed something to break up that deck. So i layed out a grate in Maya, with what I had so far in the camera view, and found out then, that I'd have to stretch the lens a bit to achieve the same perspective. But it worked, except for the barrel, heh. I'll try and fix it up before putting the finished stamp on it.

Pgraphics - Thanks!

Katon - Did this 99% in Photoshop except for the grate, in Maya, which I ended up painting over anyway. Some mirror ref for face, hands, and shirt folds, but other than that...just fun seeing what happens.

long mao - arrrr!

William b. Hand - Aye, perhaps they are, but hopefully he's just got small feet, =)
