ROUND #204:: Captain of the Sky Pirates
Captain of the Sky Pirates
As a respected member of the Sky Pirates for more than ten years, it was obvious that after the previous captain suffered an “unfortunate accident” in battle, (s)he would take up the leadership of the pirate crew. Behold the new Captain of the Sky Pirates: feared by his/her opponents, admired by his/her crew!
Design the Captain of the Sky Pirates!
- Setting can be anything; steampunk, fantasy, sci-fi etc. as long as the “sky” part is evident !
- This is a Captain, so show his/her authority in your design.
- Extra points for design of the Sky Pirate ship!

I think this is a very beautiful topic and i thought i will join.Maybe i will be able to finish it
so i am starting with thumbnails
I was thinking an hot-air-balloon ship as the skyship
hey cool thumbs king kratos the second and the fourth look very promising -
well this is my sketch so far - before i push it any further i'd do well to study up a bit on arms and drapery
i go with the battle experienced old fart captain - pilot goggles !! I predict a lot of them ^^
So - not to engage in shameless self-promotion - but I'm actually part of the cast/crew for a radio show called "Sky Pirates!". The show takes place in an airship-infused alternate 1933, and our main character, Gulliver Nash, is the Captain of the Sky Pirates.
I will, of course, need to draw him for this.
kingkostas - I like thumb 4 a lot, looking up at someone gives a sense of power
Morten - Good start! Maybe try for some original elements tho xD
aaaaannd before you know it, it's 2:30am -_-' trying a different approach with this one
lookin good so far peeps
heres my piratess captain. im probably thinkin too classical in terms of her look .
ill work on that.
Did you just watch Laputa: Castle In The Sky Arthemis?... :p
LONG LIVE YOKO KANNO!!!
I feel like I've got the pirate part of the design down, but I'm not sure if it's got enough air in it...
This is my more fun design. I also have a post apocalyptic version I'm working on.
Wow... I can't decide what would be the coolest... ah well, here are a few brainstorm ideas...
Trying to flesh out the idea a little here. Going for a steam punk style sky pirate. Thought a parachute would keep the character more in theme, but I'm still not sure if it's airy enough. Feel free to critique.
Picture a crew of things, maybe men, maybe something worse - winging across the skies.
Their Captain speaks in tongues sometimes. And sometimes he speaks in teeth and claws.
CRITIQUE AS YOU WOULD BE CRITIQUED
THE ABOVE LINK IS ALL YOU NEED
http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=200044 <- Sketchbook - filled with unhappy things.
This sounds so juicy and fun, i've got to have a bash!
Trying to find a style for myself to stick with, so this will be good practice.
richart-Thnx mate.I think i will probably do the 4th cause i also like it more.Check the anatomy a little because it seems a little confusing.Cant read well.Keep up
hunchback-Mate i like how this is forming up.Very nice loose strokes.Keep it up
truepinkas-Nice equipment mate.keep building it
mastertroglodyte-The sketches are looking very interesting mate!!!
Lazaruskitty-ooo i love the arm equipment!!I think this can become a great char.Keep it up
here some more to stabilize the char a little more
@Hunchback: Nice flair so far, I am waiting for more.
@KingKostas: Nice Layouts, I think the 4th is the best so far. The last sketches give me a feeling of the carrebean, because of the light dress and the parrot I think.
Still searching. Heres a first sketch in a more classic black beard stile. The scenario would be a fantasy world in a technology stage somewhere around WW2. For now I call him cpt Scarf. He is a nasty greedy bastard when it comes to money, but for his crew he is like a father.
Another idea would be a Flash gordon scenario, with a younger captain and a more daring outfit. I will try both in sketches.

Is that a spring coil on his leg? I like it
Nice with a new different approach.
Good start. Its definitely pirate. Perhaps ad something connecting to air.
Nice especial the upper body. Make sure the decorations on her knees and her feet's match.
Low left is my favourite.
Great stem punk. Maybe have a stem punk airship in the background.
great thumbs especially the low right. The latest wip with the right girl makes me wonder why she only got one boot. Perhaps giving her a wooden leg or something
Good character. Don't forget to show more of his body
Fun topic!, I'm gonna go for a sexy but kick-ass female pirate Captain, actress Lena Headey has the look i'm aiming for but i'll beef her up a bit so she looks as though she can go toe to toe with any smart arse tuff guy.
Looking good so far guys, keep it up
Hey Rusty, nics sketch as usual, but I am not sure if the ship will work this way. It needs some space to the ground.
Here a couple of more sketches, but I am still not sure, how to get the ship in there. ^^°
I am aiming for a look between these last 3
Vaejoun - Kudos for finding Tale Spin reference!
JanJager - Love the right version.
Hunchback - If you want, you could give her a mix of 1900s military garb (medals/insignias, etc) along with a frilled collar and coat.
Me, I'm trying for a Sky Cap'n Nemo oriental captain.
Cydonian - nice take on perspective. He's on top of the world - you've got that one down. His body - I know you've only reached sketching stage - right now it looks like a cartboard cutout, but his face is already spot on...
Rusty - you rule man. I can't wait to see your process.
So here's my approach: I'm going for a paraglider/parachute thing on her back, but I don't know quite how to go about it...
Crits more than welcome - I'm here to improve!
my ideea so far is of an Al-qaeda plane hijacker, with his crew members with a full arsenal of AK 47 and bomb belts etc...on a plane track with a passenger plane behind.Some thumbnails to start with
Nice topic. Here some WIP, post apocalyptic Sky Pirate Captain
[ Team CHOW II - RANDOM TEAM #3 ] - (Liz Edwards, blau, Gominoid)
like many others, I simply could not resist this topic... hopefully, I'll have time to finish this one...
if you cannot tell, I am going for a bit of an industrial steampunkish look... I'll add a background and an airship at some point as well... I see some really great sketches at the moment!
please, do feel free to critique!
The Dread Pirate Roberts, aboard his airship Revenge....okay maybe not.
Nice preliminary work so far, crits are in order once they get a little further.
