So, my roommates & I watched the first 3 “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies recently, and the awesomeness of pirates is truly never far from my thoughts (especially since, according to family legend, there is a Pirate waaay back in the Kent bloodline). Add to that sleep deprivation, caffeine & a mind-numbing early shift at my job, and BOOM!! – Cap’n America is born! Behold!

Yarr!!

Yarr!!

Furthermore, my girl & I spent 4 days at Comic Con International, and got to board the Jackdaw, the Pirate ship from the upcoming Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, so needless to say, the imagination hasn’t so much sparked, as it has been a raging inferno. I just needed some time to focus it, and forge something awesome out of it.

The Jackdaw! (actually the Star of India, but Ubisoft payed for the sail & paintjob…OMG ship in CosPlay!!)

Me & BlackBeard be maties!

Arr!

She be a beauty!

There will be prints of Cap’n America. Lemme know if you want one! Cheers, Maties!

Im trying out a new technique: Spray paint & paint pens. I’m planning on making a new fine art series using birchwood panels and Montana Black spray paint:

This is a 12″x16″ panel sprayed with colors Jaws & Seal.
I then drew a stencil of a familiar shape on it:

Then, using Montana Acrylic Paint Pens, I added color flourishes:

This is as far as I’ve gotten so far. I’m still working on the color flourishes so I’ll post again when I make more progress. I really enjoy the coverage I get from the Montana Black line of spray paint, and their color range is amazing. Their pens I really can’t praise enough; great color vibrancy & opacity with durable nibs. Pick some up at your local art store (aka: Flax on Market in downtown San Francisco). Tell ’em Grim sent you.
