I had some time to post this before my family and I dig in to Thanksgiving Dinner 2009!
I've always wanted to do Jack Sparrow fan art and I thought the idea of the rum always being gone in the Pirates sequels was good gag.
I tried to keep the lines very tight and clean and when it came time to color it, I thought it'd be best to go the opposite and make them a bit more loose and playful.
It was really fun to color and really explore around with textures and the various brushes Phoroshop CS4 has to offer. I think it gives the piece more life then say to straight up toon shade it. Anyways I think it works and I had a blast from pencils to final colors.
Well enjoy your and here's the deviantART post:
