Pirate for sketch themes


This is my entry for August's Sketchy Business (www.sketchthemes.blogspot.com) topic, pirates! I had full intentions of doing a crotchety, grizzled pirate until I started going through my reference binders and found really good refs for a girl pirate. I'm really happy with how she turned out, and I'll likely use this drawing for digital painting practice in the near future. She's heavily inspired by the work of Adam Hughes, one of my favourite artists. Her name is Eve. She is a pirate because it is the easiest and cheapest way to obtain all of the nice things she covets. She's superficial, certainly, but she's very sure of herself.
