Coffee Pirate by Katy

Coffee Pirate
by Katy

Prompt: Pirates of the Carob Bean
prompted by: Erich Heidewald, during Sketch Fest #14 (May, 2011)

Because pirates need caffeine for all that swashbuckling. I feel like the hat is too small, but it looked silly when I did it larger. Solution: I need to see more real life pirates. Referenced myself, digital pencil, in Painter X.


Uneide says: !!! And this is how I feel most morning, glorious glorious caffeine! :D I love the look the parrot is giving us just over the rim of the cup. ^_^ ~ Reply?

Erich Heidewald says: Har Har har! Pirate's morning brew. You'd have to be a pirate to drink out of a mug with the skull and crossbones on it! ~ Reply?

Sylvia Heidewald says: I'll bet that parrot is getting his share of sips in! ;D ~ Reply?

Katy says: Thanks :3 I sat there and thought, hmmm how many more pirate cliches can I add in? So the skull and crossbones on the mug and the parrot were almost afterthoughts. I'm really happy with how this came out! ~ Reply?

Sue Rundle-Hughes says: Love this :D I love the bird hehe ~ Reply?

Anke Wehner says: Lovely. So much character in the expression. ~ Reply?

Carol Moore says: Fantastic work! Love the skull/crossbones on the mug and the bird. Amazing work on her pirate attire and accessories : ~ Reply?
