A pirate life for me by Saurus A pirate life for me by Saurus
“What was I thinking!?” John yelled as the big Pirate frigate drew closer through the night shrouded seas. “I could have just left, but nooo! I just had to steal that bloody figurine!” he banged his hands on the railing of the quarterdeck, after which he proceeded to bang his forehead against it as well.

Will raised an eyebrow at his friend in a slightly worried frown. “Did you really expect they’d just let you get away with it?”

John stopped hitting his head against the railing. It really wasn’t helping his headache get any better. He still refused to look up though, as if not seeing the ominous frigate might make it go away. “No,” he moaned,” I suppose not. You wouldn’t happen to have forty cannons down your trousers, would you?” John didn’t need to see Will to know he was rolling his eyes. “I didn’t think so.” He muttered, finally looking up again. The frigate was still there.

“They haven’t fired at us yet.” Will remarked.

“Well break out the rum and let’s throw a party!” John shouted, waving his hands as he always did when nervous. “Of course they haven’t! They can’t risk blowing apart that bloody figurine. What does it matter? There’s probably five dozen pirates on that ship ready to board us as soon as they’re in range.” He crossed his arms on the railing and laid his chin to rest on them, eyeing the approaching ship, trying hard to stare it into sinking.

“We’re to slow to outrun them.” Will added, scratching his head as if musing over a plan.

“I just love how gently you break these things to me.”

“And we can’t reach the Altrac currents in time; not without impaling ourselves on the cliffs that is.”

“Have I mentioned how much I appreciate your positive outlook on life?”

“We do have a few dozen barrels of alcohol below deck.”

John’s eyes turned to Will, and almost simultaneously they began to grin.

I seem to be getting back in touch with the furry side of things, so here’s a wolvish kind of pirate I have dubbed John. There’s little I can say about the drawing; it was an impulse thingy, based on my desire to draw a figure swinging on a rope, so there you have him. Enjoy!

Nice. I like the change in colors in this... at least to me it seems as though a large amount of your art consists of greens and blues, more cool colors, so this is kind of refreshing in terms of balance with its reds.

Also, the movement is good :)

As a matter of fact, I made this drawing to break away from all the blue and white I had been using. Every now and then I'll take a look at my gallery and decide "Hmmm, it realy needs more ... now." :D

I can't draw, I just scrible so many lines on a page that it's a statistical given I'm bound to make a reasonable drawing on accident at some point :D But it's nice of you to think so anyway :)
