First Mate Peggy

May 29, 2013

This is a pretty broad stroke inspiration board as it sits, but I'll refine it with time.  I had to go with some of the classics though.

I've been sketching off and on since starting to think about my pirate.  I have many chicken scratch type sketches just to work out shapes and sizes of my pirate but here's one that I'm thinking about using.  

Long Beard the Pirate

I'm working on a few more but I really like the idea of so many items getting lost in that beard of his...haha.

Another character I worked up I like.  I think Long Beard is the one but this one is fun too.

First Mate Peggy

All jeweled up of course.  A pirate with style.

So I've decided on Peggy as a my illustration to finish (I'll probably get to Long Beard afterwards).  Here's the final shapes for him.

Had some troubles with being sick so I'm just getting back to Peggy.  I haven't defined his fingers yet and I of course I"ll be tweaking his color throughout the detailing process.  I'll be tweaking his shapes a bit too as some of them need some smoothing out/roughing up...haha.

When I say 'had some troubles being sick' I didn't realize how sick but now I"m FINALLY feeling better and getting back to Peggy.  I've just started getting his shadows and textures started but wanted to update since others have already wrapped up their projects.  I've made some changes to his posture based on Matt's feedback also.  I still have a ways to go...haha.

Well, I think I"m wrapping up Peggy.  I might revisit a bit in a day or two but I'm pretty happy with him.  I made him a bit more pirate like with a bit of a scowl and no shirt.  Also I imagined Peggy doing most his pirating during dawn or dusk, hence the slight light touches on the left.  What'chu think Skillshare peeps?

I've updated the hat to look more like it's sitting on his head (based on Simon Whittaker's suggestion).  It does look better for sure.  This class has been amazing and I loved it.
