Piratey





Some rarely seen pirate paintings.
Created for some specific purpose or simply for the sheer love of the subject matter? Um,..It's been way too long to remember.
If anyone cares I'll see if I can dig up some more.

Lev said...

Now this stuff is just downright awesome. I'd love see a short comic done like this.

Haggis said...

Whoa, that's amazing! I can't get enough of those illustrations that may or may not have been made for a specific project! ;)

Dean said...

You know, these awesome paintings look just like... hey, is that a three-headed monkey behind you?!?

Oort said...

Personally, I enjoy your more panoramic paintings if you have any others lying around.

Sam said...

Shiver me timbers!!! More Pirates please! Those are amazing.
Isn't it concept art for Monkey Island?
I remember seeing the fat-mean pirate before (in Mixnmojo maybe).

Sweet. You can never have enough pirate paintings.

AndyBundy said...

Hmm I thought I've seen this pirate-art before but... no I've seen a big meanie more zombie-like. And if I check out the 3rd art... it looks like that blonde guy, who's the main actor of four games. You know who I mean ;) Even if it's not an artwork for a game, I still want to see more of those pirate paintings.
Here's a link of some World of MI-News containing the pics you (maybe) have seen before: http://www.worldofmi.com/comments.php?type=news&id=1255&action=read
3 Artworks less you need to look for, Steve. ;)

I would love to see more of your pretty pirate paintings (I only wrote it that way for the alliteration).

Falthorn said...

Please tell me there's a wallpaper sized version of the third? Excruciating begging/pleading/unmanly -quivering to follow.

Paul V said...

Guybrush! =D

Mr. Andersson said...

The second one is really fantastic!
I would love to see more.

By the way, why is that guy on the third picture wearing a sombrero? Can it possible be Stan?

Monkeyfeather said...

Wow, AWESOME pirate paintings. I dig the skull pattern in the first pirate's jacket.

HieroHero said...

Great paintings Steve.
The Pirate is really something else.

AndyBundy said...

@mr.andersson: this is Guybrush. Check the smile and the hair. Ohh and this is no sombrero, just a big hat for a small head like Guybrush's with some feathers on it. But this scene never appeared in any MI game... that's pity.

k. borcz said...

STARCHIE! I have often admired various illustrations of yours that seem to lagomorphize Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol." Are these part of some larger work, or are you just a fan? I would actually cook and eat my beagle with a side of Funyuns to get my hands on a poster or print of your "Christmas Carol"-related work. What are my chances, man?!

Mike said...

Man, I love your use of colour. And your FORMS?! So great.
