Outside of some recent hand-lettering classes I've done on Skillshare, I've never illustrated anything... at least not without the help of Photoshop's pen tool. Doing the initial sketch by hand (first on paper and then with a Wacom tablet) was the biggest challenge.

I have a thing for owls, so I decided to make my pirate an owl pirate, and because the theme makes me think of "Pirates of the Caribbean," I'm trying to give him a Caribbean color scheme.
