Fate is Stirring by Swashbookler Fate is Stirring by Swashbookler
EDIT: Okay, I've like changed the title of this thing for the third time XD

I imagine he's standing there on Becket's deck being irritated by some dude in a powdery white wig and then, with his acute, supernatural senses detects a faint stirring in fate that seals his doom.
DRAAAMAAAAA!
Drew this sketch while camped at my uncles. YAY I DREWED AGIN! Very therapeutic in both artsum and fandum.
Colored it on photoshop.

Lookit the BARNACLES :iconfabulousplz:

The hat is just so gross and raggedy and UBER DETAILED.
I like the satin-lighting on it~
And I like the random sailcloth and rope pulley background of EPIC WIN :iconftwplz:

You always draw such expressive eyebrows, even when the brows themselves are missing. XD Hurr hurr hurr. Wrinkly squid brows... I never tire of them.

Okay, the texture on Davy's entire face officially ROCKETH. Look! It's the coffee cup texture from the 'making of' scenes-! 8DD
Maaaaan, you've got his face structure down so well you could draw him WHILE CAMPING or something. :iconicameplz: Seriously, the plethora of perfectly placed wrinkles and the cheekbones, they are niiiiiiice.
The suction cups make me happy.
So do the doodley-awesome mussels and other growths on his shoulder~

Excellent portrait. Totally captures this character in one go.

I did draw him while camping, but I took all my printed refs.
And yes, the coffee cup. Except I couldn't find a dirty coffee cup online so I found some molecular structure model and made it out of that. XD

*OH LOOK I'M COMMENTING* OTL

Geez this is awesome. It has this awesome, vintage shade to it. Did you add a brown layer over that? I just love it, like it would be a classic sketch by someone who actually saw him. :D It also kind of has this charcoal/watercolor feel to it... like someone did a sketch, did a watercolor wash, then shaded with charcoal/pencil. It really feels like that to me... :P

The background kind of clashes, though, it lacks that same vintagey (LANGUAGE LIBERTIES) feeling. :P

BUT I LOVE IT NONETHELESS. :heart:

XD my background are always artificial. Especially that pully back there I just pulled that out of my props archive.
But what I did is sketched it, then did a toned layer and then cjust colored over it all.
But thank you for joining the living, I was beginning to worry about you.

I really like this, those eyes especially. And the scars, they're very lifelike. (I think it's a general rule you can't be a 'real' pirate until you have some sort of defining scar or other such physical marking, like the dragon tattos or Ragetti's eye.)

Well this one consists of at least....5 or 6 hours of sketching, meticulously using reference pictures. Then maybe 2 or 3 hours of coloring with a toned page and more reference pictures.
I tend to favor the "multiply" mode on the layers pallet to color over my pencil lines.

Oh, well, the "mode" drop down menu is a very very very fun simple thing.
Basically what it does is, if you have one layer over another the "modes" makes that top layer have different transparency effects. (blends it into the layer below it in different ways)
It's located at the top of the layer pallet and will be displaying the word "normal" unless you select another mode.

It has the extended completely animated Liar's Dice scene with more pipe puffing and you find out that Will challenged Jones twice in the same scene and that's why he says: "Ye can't best the devil twice son!", a scene after Norrington brings the heart and the Dutchman magnificently appears for duty with Davy taking off his hat as a nod but looking pissed! And the Governor interaction with him after trying to stab his heart but the animation wasn't finished so it's just Bill in his iMOCAP pajamas approaching Jonathan Pryce:XD:

I never would have guessed the Gov'na would have gone for the kill. Then again he's gone up against a severed arm before.

Because Davy first told the Governor(in the extended version of the Navy's arrival at the Dutchman in AWE)that Elizabeth was killed along with the Black Pearl! He was so mean!:XD:
