The Sea Scorpions - Act One

A commotion buzzed at the edge of the trading souq next to the harbor of Jizan. All eyes of the spectators followed a slender ebony galley, fringed with gold and inlays of ivory, as it slid and anchored beside one of the earthen quays. On its billowing crimson sail glowered the gold face of a ram which supported the sun on its horns, the royal insignia of Kush.
It was by no means unusual for a Kushite vessel to dock at Jizan. Plenty of merchants from all sides of the Red Sea and beyond would flock to the port to vend their wares and restock for the next trip. Yet the black galley that had come in was a rare giant that would have dwarfed the typical merchantman, never mind the native Arab dhows that appeared beside it like minnows to a whale. Above the deck glimmered the copper spears, axes, and swords of the soldiers aboard.
Once they laid the gangplank down, there descended a svelte young woman whose skin was as dark as the galley itself, with her shor

As of now, I have two commissions I need to complete, one by 9/10 for ElSqiubbonator and the other in a week or two. Other than those two, I have decided to close commissions for the time being until further notice.

Also, free requests will continue to remain closed.

Apparently someone who runs a kids' coloring page site offered one of my dinosaur sketches for download...without asking me for permission. I will give them a little bit of credit for naming me as the original creator...but should I let this slide?

www.bettercoloring.com/jurassi…
As much as I cherish the original Predator movie, the new sequel was a letdown for the comparison. Not only was the overall story a mess, but the autistic kid character was basically a well-intentioned but misguided textbook stereotype. Here's a pro-tip from someone on the autism spectrum: calling us "the next step in human evolution" may sound flattering, but we're not superior to anyone else. Or inferior. Just different in our own way, much like the rest of humanity.
Not sure how accurately it portrays Upper Paleolithic Europe, but Alpha was quite a decent movie. Beautiful cinematography and world-building. It was a bit too slow-paced and low-intensity though.
I've gotten back from The Meg. Not the most accurate portrayal of Carcharocles megalodon out there (for starters, they preferred shallower waters than depicted in the film), and the human characters are flat and familiar archetypes for the most part. Still, a movie about giant sharks eating everything with meat attached is a movie about giant sharks eating everything with meat attached. So I would give it 6/10.
Having thought about it some more, I think I will stay here after all.

Do you have a fetish for black women? 
To give context I'm half black. I was just wondering. You've got good art but I don't know it just seems a bit strange. :o (Eek)

That is indeed my preference. The way I see it, everyone has their type. Some like them blonde, others go for Asians, still others go for certain body types or what have you. As the old saying goes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Just speaking as someone who is the result of a white guy having a fetish for black women, I feel like being attracted to so,done just because of their skin color is just as racist as hating someone because of their skin color. It's dehumanizing to fetishize a race...

Oh...okay. I guess I shouldn't be surprised. Obviously my dad has a fetish for black women otherwise I wouldn't exist. I just find it strange that people focus so much on race in terms of who they find attractive. I know a lot of white guys who have fetishes for black women but don't like black guys at all. It is just an uncomfortable fact for me that I only exist because my father had a fetish for black skin and my mom has a fetish for white skin. It sucks that people only see things in terms of race...
