Personally I'd really like to see target practice as a two person portrait...pirate one looking smug and turning away from pirate two who's got a tear. Great job though, love the sky and clouds :)



I've never done more than a single pirate portrait before, but here goes...




I wanted to use the two pirates that were back to back in the templates page for the "sample" image... but those pirates seemed a lot bigger than the guys in the black and white. Are those proportions right?

Looks great Bellahdonna.

The 2 pirate samples are all the same size 696 x 650 pixels. Back to back pirates would be fun in your portrait.

Thanks so much Yngve, Empresstamar and Oldwater! ^_^

Yngve, your background is looking really amazing! As far as making it snowy or not, I'd just play around with it and see which one feels right to you.

Thanks for the advice Bellahdonna. I did play around with it a bit, tried both a snowy and this darker background and decided that the dark makes the goat look more sinister, which was what I intended in the first place.
It still needs some more shading, a floor and a bit more work on the rocks in the background. But I think I'll manage to finish it in time :)

Just to clarify for folks, what timezone is that? 'Cause I've uploaded at 8pm my time (Eastern) and it showed up as being uploaded the next day on the Yppedia.
