A old one of the pirate colection :)
Although John Cabot (ca. 1450-1499) established an English claim to the North American continent as early as 1497-1498, more than half a century elapsed before Englishmen turned their attention to the new lands. The most well-known early colony was founded by Sir Walter Raleigh (ca. 1554-1618) on Roanoke Island, off the coast of present-day North Carolina. In 1585, Raleigh's men settled on the small island. Relations with the Native American inhabitants were peaceful at first, but as the colonists' supplies dwindled, amity dwindled too. The colonists left in 1586 after beheading the local Indian chief, Wingina.

Raleigh arranged for Governor John White and a group of families to return to live in peace with the natives in 1587. Violence, however, is not easily forgotten. Within one month, hostilities resumed, and White was forced to return to England to ask Raleigh for reinforcements. Time was not on White's side. When the war with Spain erupted, White could not return to the colony for three years. When he set foot on Roanoke Island in August 1590, he searched frantically for the settlers, including his daughter and granddaughter, the first English New World baby, named Virginia Dare.

All that could be found was the remains of a village and a mysterious word, "CROATOAN," engraved on a tree. White concluded there must be a connection between the word and a nearby Indian tribe, but before he could investigate, a violent storm forced him out to sea and back to England.

Left for three years, the 117 men, women, and children had disappeared mysteriously. This lost colony remains one of the greatest mysteries of the colonial period. Although Raleigh sent an expedition to search for them, the colonists are never found and their fate remains unknown.

However, it is known that Elizabeth Shirland was amongst those settlers. It is rumored that after being left behind the colonists built a wall around their homes for protection from the Indians. This was the wall that John White found on his return to Roanoke Island in 1590. The men would leave the fort to hunt and fish as the colonist's food supply eventually ran out. The Indians ambushed and killed each man as they left the fort. In time all the men were killed and the Indians captured the women and children. The Indians took the hostages to their villages to live and work as slaves.

Elizabeth was raised by Indians and left the island 1589 on board of a Spanish ship after she was picked up by Spanish soldiers. It is said that she was held captive and raped several times by the soldiers before she killed her sentinel with his own knife during the turmoil of a pirate attack a few weeks later.

Disguised as a young man she had served under the command of Sir Francis Drake, before she returned to England and got married in 1595. However, she could not stand the life of a housewife and soon left her husband and went to sea again. Little is known about her life and destiny from that point forward. She returned to York, England again once or twice, where she gave birth to a little son. Soon afterwards she left her family for good.

Elizabeth had prepared her own career as a woman pirate. It is safe to assume that she was inspired by the criminal career of the famous woman pirate Grace O'Malley. When she was captain on her own ship, she disclosed her sex to her crew and she commanded and ruled them with her iron will and her strong ability to assert herself. She used men from the crew for her sexual pleasure, and some of them left the ship with a cut throat. Due to that fact and her ability to master the blade she was also known as the Cutlass Liz.

Cutlass Liz was not too successful as a pirate captain, and hardly anything is known about her operations. The only successful strike reported was the capturing of a Spanish merchant in 1604, where Cutlass Liz looted silk and gold before burning the captured ship. A few weeks afterwards she was betrayed to the Spanish by two members of her crew and was arrested while making love to one of her traitors. As the Spaniards dragged the naked woman pirate from the bed, she was suddenly aware of the treason and managed to stab her lover with the dagger she had hidden beneath her pillows. She was instantly killed by the soldiers, what spared her from public humiliation and the painful death of hanging.

However, her only mentionable booty - gold and goods worth at least £ 30,000 - was not on board of her ship anymore and could never be retrieved.

I wanted to upload this on Halloween but it took all the weekend to finish it :(

This is a remake of an older anim from 2 or 3 years ago, it was like a personal challenge for me since i liked a lot how the older one looked. I tried to make the transformation more visible, instead of hiding his face and such. Also i applied the animation techniques i learned with CSW, even if this sprite is bigger than the ones in csw they helped a lot.

This is my entry into the artnouveau contest. The theme was fairy tales in the art nouveau style, and I chose to represent Hans Christian Anderson's Snow Queen with Kai in the style of early Alphonse Mucha paintings. The digital painting was done in Photoshop CS6 with a Wacom monitor. I did a sketch on tracing paper, scanned it, and redrew everything by hand on my Wacom monitor and deleted the original. Since I don't know how to use vectors, all of the snowflakes in the border were created individually in photoshop so that each is slightly different...never again...lol. The background texture is a free use parchment texture that I found somewhere on the web and modified in tone and color.

Prints available at www.edselarnold.com/prints/ on my portfolio website.

I revised this old sketch sirkles.deviantart.com/art/Dem… as a tattoo commission.

I went a bit crazy with this one :3 instead of translating to "demons run when a goes man goes to war", I could see a lot of people reading this as "Demons when a good man run go to war" because of how I screwed with the phrasing. I stacked the two on top of each other :3 (well... sort of stacked... more like interlaced). My reason for this being okay is because the "Demons Run" word circles are still technically below the "when a good man goes to war" word circles because they are bigger. This means it is the first phrase you read.

I left the top part of the "when a good man goes to war" phrase circles to help make it more clear that the two parts of it are still together (and to fill the extra space above "run").

The spelling of the individual words should be fairly clear. The only two things I could possibly see as tricky about it are the size of the the "n" in "man" and the lines on the "s" in "goes"

oh, and here is the black and white version and the sketch imgur.com/a/DBmDe

Today, my cat "Blacky" passed away.

This cat was no ordinary cat, and he was certainly more than just a pet.

Blacky was a black cat. He was born in 1991, and died today; Thursday, August 7th, 2014. Twenty-three human years of age.

Being born two years before I was, he was a part of my life since my very first day. He's literally been with me for my entire life.

We grew up together. We played and fought, as though we were brothers. You know what? We WERE brothers. I knew that cat better than anybody else, and that cat knew me just as well.

He loved to play, and he loved to hunt. He was a very active cat, spending much of his time outdoors. On the other hand, he spent almost as much time chilling out and being lazy. That cat sure knew how to relax!

We spent a lot of time together, and we loved eachother dearly.

But alas, the time would eventually come when we would have to say goodbye to eachother...

This morning, I took a stroll down the street, to a local coffee shop. I was there for a few hours, working on my latest comic.

When I returned home, Blacky was laying on the couch. I've been keeping a close eye on him lately, and this time, I noticed his breaths were very short. Too short.

I stayed with him, petting him. He didn't purr in response like he usually does. He wasn't suffering. He was calm.

I turned away to check my phone, and when I turned back (it must have been less than one minute), he was gone. At exactly 1:30 PM.

He was always a tough bastard, but his final days were some of his strongest.

I don't have to tell him to rest in peace. It was always what he did best.

The times were awesome, cat. There will never be another like you. Ever.

Angel was sold on ebay small advertisement when she was 5 weeks old. Someone bought her and surprise surprise without the maternal care and love she got very ill. She suffered from kitty flu and heavy diarrhoea. The new owner was neither not willing to pay for the vet costs nor for the care it would take to get her healthy again. They wanted a „cheap toy“ for their kid :no:

So angel came to the cat aid, more death than alive. With a lot of love, care and medicine she became healthy :phew: But leaving your mommy with only 5 weeks is way to early and she was very unhappy. A kitten this age needs another cats to learn how to behave and if possible a mother and siblings.

Now we have to switch to another cat called Rudolph who was abandoned by his owner. He came from the street, had obviously a lot of combats to fight and was in a bad condition too. He came to the cat aid were he refuses any contact to other cats. He was very lovely to humans but extremely aggressive with other cats (he really earned his nickname „Rambo-Rudolph“). So he got a room for himself with no other cats and he seemed to be happy.

Now fortune steps on the stage:

One day the curious littlest Angel sneaked into Rudophs room and the magic of friendship happened: Rudolph fell immediate in love with this little kitten and Angel immediately fell in love with him. When the caretaker noticed that the kitten was in Rudolphs room, pure Panic aroused. When she looked in his room with fear in her heart she could not believe what she had seen: Angel was sleeping next to Rambo-Rudoph while he was cleaning her. Both purring like Monstertrucks :giggle:

From this day Rudolph and Angel got inseparable. Now they eat together, sleep together, play together and are happy together. It is such a heart-warming story how a streetfighter tomcat turns into a loving single father who teaches an helpless kitten how to behave and gives her the love she had to miss for such a long time. :aww: Not to mention that the cat aid will NEVER separate them and no matter how long it will take: They will be placed together :heart:

For all interested people here: www.katzenhilfe-oberhausen.de/… you can see how Rudolph and Angel are cuddling together. The picture was not taken by me, it was taken at the cat aid.

When I was learning how to do this, it took me a really long time to get started because it just seemed like a whole lot of effort for nothing. So, I just colored using only the one tone, and black and white for shading. It took me absolutely forever to see how big of a difference it made, because I barely noticed it, and then of course I was doing it WAY TOO MUCH.

Also, it doesn't have to be yellow and blue. Any warm and cool tones can be used. However, unless your OC has some other color of blood, always use various shades of red for blush.

So basically, here you go, I'll save you the trouble. Also, be sure you use very very low opacity brushes to add skin tones, make sure the brush is not too small, and make sure it's very soft. These techniques can be replicated with traditional media, using very transparent supplies such as watercolor with a lot of water in it, or colored pencil with barely ANY pressure at all.

Legolas
:iconlilyofthesword:
Collection by
I kicked off the new year with some goofy fanfiction and against my better judgement uploaded it to DA for a select few people I knew would enjoy it. (For some reason I still haven't figured out, fanfiction makes people go apeshit with anger. I don't know!)

So I'm going to link it for those of you here who might want to read but first I'll warn you that I write so little I'm all out of practice. It's like anyone else picking up a pencil and drawing after they stopped in gradeschool. Secondly, if bad fanfiction or the slightest hint of ambiguous bromance enrages you, for the love of the flying spaghetti monster, don't read it.

OK, here you go: [link]

Enough of that silliness. Time for real work :P

Another weekly prompt, the theme being 'Riddles'. My mind was so set on drawing Legolas, so I sorta bended the theme to being: Elves can be full of riddles. Yesh? xD
