100 Pirates In 100 Days



I'M FINISHED!

In September of this year I began my mission to draw one Pirate a day for 100 days straight, and today I cleaned up and uploaded Pirate number 100. I am mentally and physically exhausted. If this post is less than articulate it's because I have been up for many hours and my brain don't work properly. When I'm done posting this I am going to sleeeeeeeeeeeep. Still, It feels great to know I have finished on time or thereabouts.

I uploaded the images to a flickr set, where you can view the images as a slide show, leave comments and so on. For the sake of consistency with the rest of this blog I've also put all the images behind the cut tag below, but that might take a while to load and my friend whose webspace I use will hate me, so don't say I didn't warn you! 

I should mention that since the drawings were originally commissioned for an online role-playing game, they depict not only pirates but the creatures whose world the pirates inhabit. I guess the title of this project might be slightly misleading, because a fish with a pirate hat on isn't strictly a pirate, but I hope no-one will hold that against me. I should also point out that I've ordered it so the first twenty or so are all the lowly skulking creatures and pirate children, the last 20 are the mighty warrior pirates, and then everything in between is everything in between. That's just so you don't get confused when you click the link expecting to see pirates and instead you see a bunch of fish wearing hats.

So that's the 100, pretty much on deadline give or take a couple of days!  I'd be lying if I said I found it easy to stick to the schedule, though. Some of these pirates took me three days to do each, so in the last couple of weeks I had to work at a rate of 5 pirates a day to get caught up. The Nintendo Wii coming out two weeks before the deadline didn't help matters, either. Still, I don't think the quality really suffered for all the last minute rushing.  Thanks to everybody who supported me along the way and said nice things.
