The Pirate's Life Series is Complete!

Ahoy Moon Pirate Art Print

Yay! This took a bit longer than I expected. Here's how it's put together. First the pencil drawings which are shaded and scanned into the computer. Next, the background, which is made up of one of my painted canvases which has been scanned into the computer makes up the background. Some hand marbleized rice paper, which again has been scanned in to the computer makes up the texture of the narwhale's body and the waves. The swirls in the waves are from the swirls of the marbleized rice paper! Fun huh? Lastly, color it in using Photoshop. Here you can see the final results! All three, We Arrrrr Friends, Tiarrrrghed, and Ahoy Moon, can be purchased as a print set from my etsy shop: GumballGrenade A Pirate's Life Sketches
