Pirate Burial by thegryph Pirate Burial by thegryph
The cap'n doesn't like the untrustworthy scalawags knowing where the treasure's buried... but that's no reason to dig the holes himself.

Originally intended to be finished by Talk Like A Pirate Day... work got in the way, though. Hope you guys like it!

PS CS2/Painter 9.

love this.  They had so many stories about drawing straws to see 'who'd stay behind to guard the loot'

Dead men tell no tales..this is one of the pyrate myth that they kill one of their member to guard the Gold or treasure and he is bound to eternity until judgment day

This is such a great piece. It reminds me of the classic pirate portraits done by Don Maitz, or even Howard Pyle.

You have such a wonderful use of color. I enjoy the lighting and its timing, too; the deed is almost done, and it's just about sunset. Great job!

I think the being-buried guy's hand is backwards. That is - his thumb should be on the other side, unless his arm has some freakish break I cannot replicate with my own healthy bones.

Dur. Yeah, I don't think you can do that palm-up and keep the rest of the arm that way... I'll flip it.
