This is a painting of an idea I had ages ago, but when Pirates of the caribbean curse of the black pearl came out I thought it is too similar, but instead of zombies it is vampires, since then I noticed other people had alredy used that name, but I thought it could still be a cool idea for a movie, maybe with different name like tides of blood, or blood bros. Anyway, I hope you like it, maybe I'll get to do something like that one day.

Greetings.  Sent you a PM but thought I'd put this here.  Looking to discuss a commission piece with you for some album art.  Let me know if you are interested.  Regards John Harford/Teshaleh

Jack Sparrow would say something like this; "This ship has more bats than rum, and blood instead of wine. Pirates have gone down."

Great ship design, they just have to live in style, don't they.  The lighting is superb, just hinting at the shark and other strange creatures in the swollen sea.

Love this. Huh, I think I see two more ships. One with zombies, 
the other, werewolves. One, with no blood, the other can stay
up @ broad day light. ;)

I'll tell you a tale of Vampirates,
A tale as old as true.

Yea, I'll sing you a song of an ancient ship,
And its mighty fearsome crew.

Yea, I'll sing you a song of an ancient ship,
That sails the oceans blue...
That haunts the oceans blue.

The Vampirate ship has tattered sails,
That flap like wings in flight.

They say the captain, he wears a veil
So as to curtail your fright.

At his death pale skin
And his lifeless eyes
And his teeth as sharp as night.

Oh, they say the captain, he wears a viel
And his eyes never see the light

You'd better be good, child- good as gold,
As good as good can be.

Eles I'll turn you in to the Vampirates
And wave you out to sea.

Yes, you'd better be good child- good as gold,
Because- look! Can you see?

There's a dark ship in the harbor tonight
And there's room in the hold for thee!
(Plenty of room for thee)

Well, if pirates are bad,
And vampires are worse

Then I pray that as long as I be
That though I sing of Vampirates
I never one shall see.

Yea, if pirates are danger
And vampires are death

I'll extend my prayer for thee-
That thine eyes never see a Vampirate...
...and they never lay a hand on thee.
