From thumbnail to sketch of final drawing. So I’ve been researching images of pirates and ships. I’m looking for believability in the setting and yet I don’t want to get too carried away with details. Since it’s a moonlit piece and the text references the figure falling in and out of shadows I’ll probably have to suppress the level of detail I’ve drawn already.
Here are some images I used as reference.
Here is the drawing I have for the final. I wanted to have the decking looking plausible with all the rigging and stuff.
Some areas of the piece are still loose while others have detail to them. The fun part is the have the lost and found in final piece and adding the ghostly feeling to the pirate.
