Welcome aboard the fearsome pirate ship Sea Cockrel
Our crew is going strong!
Hoist them sails, get yer swords, let's take off before the honest folk make us dance the hempen jig!A Note
Unlike many other pirate clubs here on DA, this is NOT a fan club
for any film.
However marvelous and hot that film
may be, we here on the fearsome pirate ship Sea Cockrel are an artist collective
. We share the same general love/obsession/lifestyle, and this means we should unite at last.
This is not a hateful alienation of fan clubs, nor those who saw a certain film
and were inspired to become a pirate. All in all, we share the same love for piratedom.
I was simply making the distinction between this ship and... others.
corsairs, privateers, buccaneers, scallywags, scurvy dogs, fellow Captains, and, to spice things up, a good mutineer or two
those who are [or think they are] pirates
those who create pirate-themed art or writing
Note the Pirates account if you'd like to be a member of the crew. Remember to tell us what your NAME AS A PIRATE is.
As a member, it would be only due and proper of you to add the PIRATES icon into your journal or signature.
Keep in mind that comments left on the main page seeking entry will probably not be seen.
If they are you will automatically become a swab, and the cat o' nine tails will become your new best mate.On Contests
A contest will be held every two months. The winner will be decided on a voting basis [among the members], and will recieve a one-month subscription to DeviantArt.
At the end of five contests, the five winners will have the option of competing in a sort of finals. This contest will have a general pirate theme, and will also be due at the end of two months. The winner, who will also be determined on a voting basis [this is a pirate democracy, unfortunently we are no longer able to duel to the death...] will recieve a three-month subscription to DeviantArt.
This is all friendly competition, mates, let's be kind n' fair to each other... for the most part.Orders of business
