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!



    Yarrr!

    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 ^^

    Oh man.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    My first thought was "One piece" the pirate crews there are always so crazy ^^
    My 2nd thought was pirates of t.c. ... not very creative so far.

    I'll try to do some braining over this, to come up with something nice.

    My first thought was Skies Of Arcadia.

    @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

    richart
    Nice with a new different approach.

    hunchback
    Good start. Its definitely pirate. Perhaps ad something connecting to air.

    Truepinkas
    Nice especial the upper body. Make sure the decorations on her knees and her feet's match.

    MasterTroglodyte
    Low left is my favourite.

    Lazaruskitty
    Great stem punk. Maybe have a stem punk airship in the background.

    kingkostas
    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
    Vaejoun
    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...

    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!
