Hector's Self-portrait by Limejuice-Ink Hector's Self-portrait by Limejuice-Ink
In a fleeting moment of boredom, angst, and artistic inspiration, Barbossa carves up a rough self-portrait from his favorite forbidden fruit, a poison-green apple.

Sketched with colored pencils.

Artistic reviews are, naturally, quite welcome.

Happy Halloween.

:)

I think I like your description of the piece as much as I do the piece itself. X)
Fantastic execution of an awesome concept. I give your coloration and detail a standing ovation.

Thank you so much for featuring my artwork! I truly appreciate it. I haven't drawn anything in months, actually, but reviews do encourage me to pick up colored pencils and paper. So thanks!

The way you threw all those different colors together gives this whole thing such an amazing effect.
I couldn't even begin to comprehend how you did that the way you did!
And those lines....are freaking amazing.

And now I shall go back to staring some more.

This is amazing. I absolutely love the texture of the lines. Everything is very wispy, which to me emphasizes his decaying state. I love how the details, at first, blur together and everything looks like one giant maze of colour. But as you continue to look at it, there are flames on the candle, a candle holder beneath those candles, a pattern on the curtains, amazing texture details in Hector's face, spaces between his beard hairs, and even joints in his fingers! Spectacular portrait. What I love about your drawings is that they are original works, not taken from a screenshot, yet they always look exactly like the person you intended to draw.

Thanks once again for reviewing my art, Pirate! I referenced a medical anatomy books when drawing the skeletal hand. Nice hearing from you!

I just bought a huge "anatomy book for the artist". Great things to have on hand when drawing body parts.

Oh my god. This is incredible. I'm pretty sure I could stare at this all night and keep noticing new details... it took me a few minutes to see that ghostly reflection in the window! I love the drapes, the candlestick holder, and man just everything. Your drawing and coloring are both stunning. This is so creative, imaginative, I am stunned. You have flabber-gasted me. I could stare for a few more hours but I really must be doing homework, so I must rip my eyes away prematurely. Really really fantastic work.

Amazing work, you really captured his mood and the darkness the Pearl in it's curse. The apple looks especially fantastic. His eyes make me sad.

My boundless thanks for your descriptive review! (I'm glad you liked the apple- I drew it first, then patterned the rest of the sketch around it).

Oh...wow. When I first found this I think I stared with my mouth oppen for 10 mins. There is just somthing about your lines adn the way you color that really sets the mood of the room here. I'm in love with the drapes, is that weird? I really can't find anything I would ever change. The proportions of Barbossa's face seem a TAD off, but it just dosent MATTER becayse the lines are so amazing. Your styal is really sotmhing special.
Then theres the idea. I've seen ALOT of Barbossa fan art but never anything like this. I love the idea and your mind for comming up with it.
Also I almost didnt catch his reflection and now that I see it I can't look away.
new favorit drawing like EVER!!!
Thank you for sharing with us!
THANK YOU!

Thank you for you startlingly sweet and very comprehensive review! The drapes are actually an old silk scarf of mine I hung up on my window and sketched.

I got the idea for this picture while peeling and cutting up some of the wild apples that grow around my property.
