These two are always in some kind of predicament. It surprises me, sometimes, what a mess they can get themselves into.
Although Errol I think has been a wanted pirate for many a year. In fact, disguising themselves to avoid arrest was probably his idea.
This is a picture elaborated from an idea sketch I did when I uploaded the first ever sketch dump I deviated of my two pirates a good year or so ago, Yo Ho Ho
, at the very bottom of the page. I'm proud to have invested more into getting their disguises accurate for the time period in this one, and while Brandy is and always will be the forefront of this duo, it feels somewhat like Errol was the most fleshed out for this picture. Errol went through another bit of a design change, and I'm getting into the groove drawing him at last.
He's gained a bit more attractiveness than his original design from my first drawings of him. lol He's still as bumbling as he ever was, though, and no one will ever take his beloved, oversized hat away from him.
Brandy, however, is the lightest, is centered, and is therefore the focal point in this, as it should be. Blue is so Brandy's color, too. In fact, they're both in shades of blue to sort of show they're together (that's often a theatre trick), and to allude to the idea that they're really the good guys here. Of course, I used red for their shadows, too, because they're not all good.
Brandy apparently won't part with her gold jewelry, either.
I guess I could've worked on the background a bit more, but my main concern was the characters and the Wanted sign. It may be edited later on, because I want this to go into my portfolio. The paper was some old stuff I scanned off a book.
Sketched, colored with a mouse. Everything here belongs to ME.
