Pirates of the Caribbean: Captain of the Rum by ThreshTheSky Pirates of the Caribbean: Captain of the Rum by ThreshTheSky
"Aye! The rum too!"

Kevin McNally as Mr. Gibbs from the Pirates of the Carribbean films

Painted as an art trade with *KomyFly, who in return agreed to paint Alan Rickman from Dogma for me. I knew she was making the Metatron with a funny pose, so I decided that Gibbs deserved one as well.

Gibbs, the Captain Morgan pose, and PotC are property of their respective owners. Various screenshots were used as reference.

Captian Jack Sparrow will not be pleased when he comes back to Mr Gibbs... only to see the Black Pearl
sailing away again :giggle: But all is well, because he has some rum!!
Beautifully painted!

You're welcome!
You can't plan how to retrieve the ship without rum! :D
Rum helps the planning process... or they could get so
drunk on it that they pass out for a couple of hours.

"Got a little first mate in you?" Yes! I love that.

You're very welcome! I'm glad you like it. Gibbs is my favorite PotC character so it was really fun to paint him for you. I know the pose is silly, but I couldn't resist.

Thanks for trading with me!

How on earth do you make these detailed pieces as fast as you do..? Every day I open dART and there's something new from you! It'd take me a week to finish something like this!

I've noticed that I'm able to finish things much faster now that I have a tablet. Besides the fact that it's just more accurate and efficient and thus faster, it also allows me to skip the penciling step. So there's no need to mess with the scanner and such which trims a fair amount of time off. I've also been making art like mad lately because the novelty excitement of using a tablet hasn't worn off yet. I'm sure I'll slow down once the honeymoon phase is over.

On a more pathetic note, I also have actual medical problems with insomnia. If I remember correctly, I think I even mentioned in my first journal entry that a big reason I actually started this dA account was because I needed something to do with myself at night.

Also, I don't have much of a life outside of work and taking care of my family. Haha.

Where there's rum, there's Gibbs. Or maybe the other way around. Haha.

Thanks! It wasn't intentional this time or on the last painting I did of Gibbs. But for some reason I always end up drawing him with a sunset and a painterly look.
