For Years In Trouble by Trounced For Years In Trouble by Trounced
These two are always in some kind of predicament. It surprises me, sometimes, what a mess they can get themselves into. :giggle: 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. :XD: 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. =P

Sketched, colored with a mouse. Everything here belongs to ME.

No offense the wanted poster is way too clear. In reality it'd be a sketch or a painting.......this looks like a photo. it an artists moment....just had to say something.

I don't like the gold cepter in his hand either it screams "LOOK AT ME!" ....which leads to the issue that has already been pointed out that hat of his and his face so clearly seen. So by him drawing attention through such an awful piece of ....well it's not jewelry but we'll say decoration? LOL he's drawing EVEN more attention to him!

lol Yes, I know in those times it couldn't have been a photograph, but because I wanted the two to be recognizable in the poster I just used a sort of "snapshot" of them. =D It's a bit funnier that way even if it's not perfectly realistic. And I guess I'm sorry that you don't like the desicions I made for Errol. D8 But it was all part of the humor that he stands out because of his extravagent personality despite trying to be in disguise.

With a hat so... how to put it?... extravagant, I'd be surprised if they can be "incognito" for more than a few minutes :P

Good job!

=D That's the humor in it. Errol seriously needs to straighten out his priorities. :no: ;)
Thank you!

How much time do you spend on details?

The whole blue to pair them, the lighter color to make her a focal point, WOW. I totally saw it, but didn't recognize that you did that on purpose until I read the description. The red as a shadow! You know how much I love it when you do that. It's a total contrast effect! It makes the blue pop more.

The detail in Brandy's hair if phenomenal, but that is nothing to the detail on her fan! Holy cow! Metal is so hard to make look real, but the orb on the end of Earl's staff makes me want to take it from him and pop him in the tummy. I'm so happy to read that somebody noticed that accuracy in Brandy's clothing. That is such an important part that makes the whole piece. *sigh* yeah yeah, I gabber, but you deserve every bit of praise!

Now, you said you didn't spend that much time on the background. . . but I am still impressed by it. I think you should take credit where it is due. There is so much detail in this!!
