Character of the Week #355
The Crazy Pirate Cook
Deadline - Sunday, June 29th 10PM GMT
This week's topic is suggested by PxelSlayer. Thanks!
Aboard the The Serpent pirate ship there are many different characters which makes the crew quite infamous. One in particular is their cook. In order to become a member, you have to survive a meal from him. He has a reputation of creating such foul dishes that it is known to kill people and quite often. The crew members are fortunate that he serves them something edible. In the cook's eyes, his meals are delicious and also experimental. When they have "guests" or prisoners, they let the cook handle it. You are better off starving to death than suffering a terrible fate prepared by this crazy pirate.

- They are a pirate!
- Must include a prepared, deadly dish!
- Backgrounds are permitted this week. Don't forget what the focus is in the challenge.

Green Marius~ This guy missed his proffession! He's more of an artist then a cook He's extremely bipolar, really unpredictable mood swings so everyone is carefull around him so they don't end up pierced up on his fork hand, as next possible meal (art experiment) If there was TV in his time he would totally love "Hannibal"
He is always "armed" with all sorts of cooking utensils, even in his sleep. He keeps them close like his other shipmates hold onto their weapons....He even uses them often as weapons actually. xD
wip's are in here( Click to show/hide )
Here it is! No time to color.
This guy was once the Marquis de l'Ectere. He was found by the crew of the Serpent floating on a raft fashioned from the wreck of his previous ship, which had been transporting him from the colonies back to France to face justice for unspeakable crimes. Though alone on the raft, he seemed well fed and in excellent health, and rapidly adjusted to the pirate life, soon finding a range of empty bunks to occupy. He continues to affect the iron mask he was found with, though he long ago freed himself. The crew treat him with caution despite being vicious ravening toughs to a man; this unfortunate fellow has made the mistake of refusing to sample the soup..

I tried ^^
This Pirate Cook is completely insane but rather timid. He is ruled and bullied by his parrot puppet, although it sometimes helps out, it thinks it is better at cooking than the cook but has no idea what it is on about and ends up making the cook serve up something completely inedible, often alive. He is brainwashed by the 'parrot' that is it delicious...
Of course it is all in the cook's head... But no-one would dare insult him, commonly he makes toxic servings for those who dare challenge the superb-ness of the meals or make fun of the parrot.

CLOSED: I will get the poll up soon. I was gone all day today, so hopefully some you took advantage of the extra few hours. Next topic should be up shortly after the poll.
JustIceAU - Please do not hide your WIPS inside a spoiler button. I usually dont see them and just skip over that part and people get cut because of that.
myotismon - There needs to be 2, clearly defined WIP images when you post them. I will count this today, but these small sketches with the main sketch just looks like scattered ideas, rather than a Work in Progress image.
invinciblewombat - Again, there needs to be 2 Wips, I will let it slide this week, but next time it wont make the poll.
