Skeleton Pirate Portrait by VegasMike Skeleton Pirate Portrait by VegasMike
Happy Halloween Everybody! Here's a little something for the Holidays... I just got back from Florida, Magic Kingdom, Universal Studios, Epcot, etc. Awesome stuff! I rode the Pirates of the Carribean twice and bought a little bust of a skeleton pirate at the gift shop. I was inspired so I sketched it up. Colored it in Photoshop. @4-5 hrs total.

Very cool back story to the inspiration. I like how you included the time it took to make it, rarely do i see this. It is inspiring me right now to paint a skeleton pirate.

Hi There! :wave:
You have just earned yourself an O.D.D.(oibyrd's daily devs) feature :winner: ! congrats! :clap:
TODAYS THEME - For the Love of Pirates! :heart:
ODDS (oibyrd's daily deviations) are to honor the sometimes overlooked artists of dA that I personally think deserve some exposure and also, to introduce the more popular artists to the new/overlooked deviants. I prefer to showcase ALL artwork that I love (and that includes popular artists with a fair amount of traffic to their work) in order to create a non-biased feature of the talent on dA. Please click the link below to see your work featured and to view other featured artists . If you prefer not to be a featured artist, just send me a note and I will remove you from the list. Cheers! Sandi xoxo

I love the colors in this, they're all the right tone and vividness.

The skeletal head is insane, and the hat looks nifty.

I... can't really complain :thumbsup:
