Here's what I've been working on for the past few days. I figured I would just post my progress stuff (and final) since I have not posted much in the last few days. The drawing above is a cleaner version of a rough sketch I did earlier in which Im positioning things and working the comp out.
This is a value study of the comp. I repositioned the sword and reworked a few other little things.
Here's my final paint thus far. I cropped in more to focus on the pirates face and added all the fun stormy elements, and dutched the camera a tad. I kept him fairly iconic looking and that was kinda the point of this project ( iconic characters of lore), anyway ,overall I'm pretty happy with it. Any of you pro illustrators feel free to critique and tear it up :)
