Barbossa and Jack

We named the monkey jack! I need to attend a class on like... how to name pieces of artwork. MAN.

FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS GOOD AND HOLY, PEOPLE. FULL VIEW! I don't know if you kids squint, or what. But it's complete nonsense.

So I've been on a Barbossa kick. I'm not sure why. I know I love the character consistantly, but he seemed to inspire this time around. Now that it's all done, I find I really don't have that much to say about it. I'm very proud of most aspects of it, but as always there are a few things I need to work on. The background, as always, confounded me- and I think I did a fairly good job, considering... but if you can decifer the rock surface in the upper half, kudos to you. I don't know if it would actually work.

Not enough people do this villain justice. Really.

Barbossa and Jack are the property of Disney, etc etc etc.

Barbossa rocks 'cause he's probably the most pirate of all pirates, right down to his scraggly beard.
