The hand that's holding the skull looks like it has 5 fingers in stead of 4

mckenna's picture

Four fingers and a thumb?

Guest's picture

Wow, amazing! But is the pirate meant to have that many fingers? Love the parrot!

Mmm, a most wonderufl composition - dead pirates are so sweetly classy, much amazement to that piece!

mckenna's picture

Yes I agree on the sword - something I missed (under pressure of deadline and all that)! I've done a more recent version in which I've added rusty texture to the blade...

Guest's picture

as a rule, i dislike digital art... but this is awesome, i have to admit... i do agree that the sword would look better if it was a bit aged or rusty...

Guest's picture

Im not easily impressed by other people`s art but this one piece is absolutely stunning, *impressed*.

personally i would have added a little bit of rust to the pirate`s blade..

Guest's picture

Hoist the anchor and set sail for the SCUMM Bar!!

Thanks! Yep, Pirates of the Caribbean innevitably a strong influence (not that I've seen it since its cinema release, I'd like to check it out it again), with a healthy dose of (EC-inspired) imagery I liked from Carpenter's The Fog.

Guest's picture

That reminds me a LOT of the Pirates of the Caribbean movie.Very nice work!

mckenna's picture

Thanks, er, me hearty.

Ohh yes... it is to be feared my friend. Well, to be honest I was a bit stumped when the brief called for the zombie to have a parrot on his shoulder, parrots traditionally considered as being entirely non-spooky in aspect. So I gave it a glowy eye and bob's yer uncle. If in doubt: glowy eye, I always say.

love the colour and detail, totally deserving an editors pick. I can't wait to see what you come up with next!
