Captain Jack Sparrow by jackieocean Captain Jack Sparrow by jackieocean
I've gotten more requests from people to draw Jack than any other character from any story or film. I have a tendency to draw piratey people anyways, so it's a wonder that I had never gotten around to making a decent picture of Jack before. I've sketched him countless times, but never took the time to do a nicely finished picture. So here is a very long overdue Captain Jack Sparrow. Enjoy! :ahoy:

I drew this on watercolor paper with brown colored pencil and then painted over it with black ink washes. After scanning the picture into my computer, I then added all color in Photoshop with my tablet. From September of 2006.

Wallpaper sized versions:
- 1024x768 (can be sized down for 800x600)
- 1280x1024

EDIT: Whoa, I didn't expect this picture to become so popular! Craziness! That said, normally I try to answer all of the comments that people leave, but this time I just don't think it's going to be possible. So I'd just like to say thank you so much for all of the kind words and nice things that you people have had to say. You guys have sure made me smile. =D

What kind of project are we talking about here? I'd like to know the context.

It's a project for my publishing class where we take quotes and create a four page magazine or book design based around them. We're required to use one or two images, and I chose quotes from Johnny Depp, so I was simply searching for some images I could use. If you don't feel comfortable allowing me to use your picture, that's absolutely fine. No worries. :)
