Okay, so I may have used the pirate theme for one of my inking assignments. I think before Pirates of the Caribbean (the movie) came out I had another mental image when I thought of pirates, and to this day I still think that's the most amazing pirate story ever told. I'm talking about the Monkey Island games by Lucasart (before all they did was Star Wars games). Monkey Island is definitely my favorite game of all-times. It was an amazing adventure game and the most important part: FUNNY AS HELL. I truly recommend this game to anyone and right now is a good moment to start because the past few years they released an special edition for the first and second game.
This game marked me so much that, after playing the third one, the art style really influenced the way I drew for a long time.
I know that, because I needed to take reference from a photograph, I didn't draw Guybrush (the main character from the Monkey Island game) but I also posted an illustration I did a few years ago as a fan art of the game. I hope you enjoy it!
