Welcome aboard the Becky by Karbo Welcome aboard the Becky by Karbo
It's one day late but here is a picture I made for the speak like a pirate day :D
I was first thinking about making regular mermaids with pirate accessories but then I pushed the concept a little further XP
The idea come partly by the fact, in English, the ships are called "she". That always intrigued me ^^
Her name is Becky, ain't she cute ? :3

The overall piece shows a large amount of skill in this drawing style. The detail on the ships and people is fantastic and very well thought out. The idea of the piece is an interesting twist on the modern concept of pirate ships. Many ships in old days would have carvings of maidens and spirits on the front in order to ward off bad luck, yet this piece takes that concept to a whole new level. The shadowing on the characters looks pretty good, but also a little bit unfinished. There is an odd splotch on Becky's breast, that I think could be toned down a little bit. Also, there is very little shading on the normal ship, when compared to Becky and her crew. Other than that though, it looks fantastic overall, and very well done.
What do you think?

OK so looking at it i see you could take more time and add more detailed line work if you are aiming towards it, but the one I see now is lovely too, As for the colors you could may be mix some gradients for example add more variations of the colors you have now in side the areas they reside within now. and as a finishing touch me personally I would add a color adjustment layer in photoshop above all other work layers and make the image pop out abit more :)
OH also I would love to see more of the right side, composition wise the image weights more toward the right so give it more space there so it becomes balanced everywhere:)
hope this helps

I certainly think that this song defines Becky as the true pirate that she is www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fc9nTc… but I also gotta tell that what do like the most of this picture is the sky, I'm certain that gives the sensation being in the middle of the ocean

Why is she wearing earplugs?!?? Now I can't sincerely compliment her on her beauteous looks and womanly charm, whilst having the slight hope that she would find me worthy of her.

I mean, look, two of the cannons are right beside her ear. If they tried to shoot them without protection she'd flip out from the pain and probably thrash around killing them all.

So you can compliment her after she takes out the rival ship.

I know that Blackbeard overloaded his ship with canons, most of them on the top deck. Probably couldn't use them all in a battle, but that wasn't what was important. What WAS important was that his enemies and victims could see them, and thus soil themselves when they saw him coming. The best pirates know how to scare their enemies into surrender, and few did it better than Blackbeard.

Yeah, I've been practically right next to large fort cannons when they were set off and boomed their thunderous epicness. I also once had a thunder mug.

But, I'm on the enemy ship. :( Though not one of the crew, just standing on it at that time.

Well, as a makeshift pirate ship she's going to be around a lot of cannon fire. Ever shoot a gun? They're very loud. Now imagine carrying twenty or so guns on your back and having them go off constantly. Poor girl needs those earplugs or she'd go deaf after the first raid. Or at very least get the worst case of tinnitus ever.

Pirates of the Caribbean (2) would've had a very different ending if they had this instead of the Kraken... Lets see, Jack hits on Becky, Becky hits on will, Elizabeth gets jealous and shoots Becky in the face with a cannon and Jack has a jar of dirt.
