Pirate Turtle by DanShive Pirate Turtle by DanShive
I was making jokes in my cartooning class today about those drawing class commercials where part of the application was (if I recall correctly) drawing a turtle and a pirate, so I drew a cheap little sketch of a pirate turtle.

Then the professor said we were going to be talking about one panel comics, so I drew ANOTHER cheap little sketch and added a caption. After that, I wanted to draw a better version of the turtle, so I drew this.

By the time the professor gave us class time to actually make a one panel comic, I was already done. What's awesome is that I would've drawn this even if it wasn't assigned, and I actually thought I would have to draw something else due to having doodled this during class and not during the assigned lab time. He said it was fine, though, so huzzah!

EDIT: Also note that this is technically a conceptual image as far as the assignment is concerned, so there'll be a more "finished" version eventually, methinks.

Well damn, if I saw a pirate, I'd take it seriously. Imagine the damage it could if fired from a cannon! Since the combination of Pirate-ish-ness and turtulity would make it tougher then any Pirate or turtle, it would rip through a whole ship.

Little known fact, Idoneasia was once one gaint island. And then a Pirate Turtle was fired at it.

Before I read the artist comments, I thought it was a joke about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. ^^
And the Ninja vs. Pirate Debate. ^^

OKay, NOW I'm curious (and jealous). Just what kinda class asks you to draw a one panel comic, let alone accepts one about a pirate turtle, even if it isn't taken seriously?

I wanna do that... o.o

Yarrr! This be a most amusing turtle pirate! Clearly, he not be one to be underestimated, for he has a hard shell into which he can retreat, and no doubt a cannon with which he can be hurled long distances!
