It is with humble and hopeful heart that I respectfully submit this piece, for special consideration as a limited release portrait background. Drawn in memory of pirate Martobain, a title suggested by his crew is "Our Friend and Buddy".

It is in tribute to a player who was a huge supporter of Puzzle Pirates and who played the game with passion and sincerity. His wit and character made a lasting impression on all who crossed his path and the world is a much poorer place without him in it.

For those of you who would like to know a little more about Marto, please read the link below.

Thank you.



It is expansive size, capable of holding x7 pirates.
I do not want to receive any of the usual payments for portrait art.

Thank you Phae for taking your time to design potentially the best portrait backgound of all time (I may be biased).

I'd love to see this background make it in game and provide us with not only the ability to take very cool, very swag portraits but also allow us to pay tribute to one of the best players of all time.

I love this idea as a tribute for Martobain, and I think it would be such a great way for players to remember him in-game.

It's a beautiful background (as yours always are Phae!) and I think it's appropriate for people wanting to remember Marto, but also still suitable for any group (even if they didn't know him) as it just alludes to his memory very nicely. Also Phae, thank you for taking the time to create this art for everyone and also put it up as a special request. <3

The truth is that we have had a handful of players from the game pass away, all of whom are remembered in different ways. I think a lot of fallen players may be remembered by the memories their friends shared with them, but I'd love to see Marto be an exception here. I'm not sure whether everyone knows this, but when Marto passed away last year, players attended his actual celebration of life. Jazz set up a livestream for anyone online, and we actually all watched, and listened, from wherever we were in the world, people who loved him come together for him. In his wife's beautiful speech that day, she mentioned Puzzle Pirates, his involvement in the game, and the close friendships he has formed there.

The game was undeniably a huge part of Marto's life for a very long time, and I think he would be honoured (and flattered!) to have this beautiful piece of art in-game. I would love to see the OMs make an exception for this background and for our friend and buddy. <3

After a long day of mischief, two best friends enjoy a sunset together.
What a beautiful moment you have managed to create Phae. It is a stunning background!
No doubt a lot of people in this game would love to get this portrait background to remember one of our own.

Amazing job Phae - Marten was a part of many many people's lives, all who met and knew him felt nothing but joy for his sense of humour and ability to make you smile on the darkest of days.

Who would think you could get emotional about a Puzzle Pirates portrait background.

Phae the artwork for this is incredible as usual from yourself, I can only echo what others have said here that this would be an incredible gesture that many of us who knew Marten would massively appreciate, if this could be added into the game even on a limited edition basis.

I think Marten has left a lasting impact on this game and the people he interacted with, he was one of the biggest characters and most loved individuals to ever hit that log in button.

If there could be an exception made by Grey Havens for this to be brought into the game, I would love to see it and totally support the idea.

Thank you for going to the lengths you have to this point Phae, a very thoughtful idea.

All the best. (Can someone please prod me if this goes through via Discord)

Absolutely the best background in game. And an amazing tribute to an amazing pirate and man (and, of course Tom Cruise, his best friend and buddy). I hope OMs also approve this and would love to use it as a background. Thanks Phae for doing this.

Who would have guessed an image could draw such strong emotions, we would really appreciate it if the OMs would consider this. Thank you for taking the time to draw this Pha and we really miss you Marten.

This is arguably one of the most gorgeous YPP portrait backgrounds ever. Not only does it do a beautiful job of honoring an amazing pirate and long-time YPP-supporter, but it offers so much to the general pirate as well - who wouldn't want to sit on the beach and watch a mind-blowing sunset with your fav buddy? It 100% deserves to be added into the game, and I can easily see it being one of the most commonly chosen backgrounds (limited ed. or otherwise).

Phaeirie, you always do such beautiful and mind-blowing work. Thank you for putting such effort into this tribute, for honoring Marto so brilliantly, and for sharing it with us all. <3 And to Grey Havens, I know exceptions can be difficult/impossible, but PLEASE consider the increased portrait economy that might just explode if this background is added into the game! ;)

Thank you so SO much Phae for drawing this! Martin made a meaningful impact on all of us and I miss him. It would be great to have a way to share our memories of him by using this portrait.
