THE PIRATE'S TALE

THE PIRATE'S TALE By Cougartiger I Once upon a time, in another world, I was born in the usual way. Although you must now be told that here we start life old, become young, then return once again to where we had begun. My life began as normal for us. I grew young and came to see that my father's life as a pirate was not for me. 'Twas a lawyer I wanted to be. Untill one fateful day when my pirate father left on a voyage at sea. I thought nothing of this, it's always been this way. One day, I received a letter from my brother saying, "Our father has been murdered. You must avenge him for the sake of our mother. I cannot as I will

I'm moving on, for the time being, from cartoon characters. Since my drawing skills are improving, I decided to move to dragons as they are more complex to draw. The drawings I uploaded recently are just simple dragon body designs and poses. For the past week, I've been working on a more detailed dragon. I hope to have it finished and uploaded by week's end. I won't be coloring anything again for a while. I just want to concentrate on my drawing skills right now. Then I'll work on shading, coloring and other fancy art things. :) After dragons, I'll move on to human anatomy. From there, I should have enough experience to try something origin

I got permission from D.C. Simpson to put up some commissions she did for me. They are really beautiful and I wanted to share them. My own art skills are a work in progress but I hope to have something up in a month or so. Expect to see lots of stuff I copied from drawing books untill I get enough experience (and confidence) to try something original. The book version of my poem, The Pirate's Tale is still in the planning stages. I hope to write the basic story outline soon with the actual writing to begin shortly thereafter. There will be 2 volumes. The first will be about Captain Locke's parents and how Locke avenged his pirate father's m

Hello, everyone! Finally decided to create a journal entry. I hadn't before as I've been busy. Anyway, it's a new year and I hope to have new stuff to put on this page throughout the year. I am currently in the process of turining my poem, The Pirate's Tale into a book. The book will not follow the events of the poem exactly but will be it's own thing. I've been wanting to write a book for ages but was stuck for inspriation. So, thanks to D.C. Simpson for providing me with tons of inspriation! Of course, writing a book is no easy task and I suspect it'll take the better part of the year, if not longer, to complete it. But complete it I wil

Thanks for the favs.
Did D.C. Simpson ever get back to you about the art you paid for, and resolve the issue? I was thinking of trying to commission a piece from her.
DCS has responded and will be sending me my stuff soon. Hopefully I'll get it sometime this week.
