zomg, Dan is doing fan art!
yes, I did. and boy did I enjoy it. The reason for that lies in the nature of the character, though, I certainly wouldn't want to paint fan art all my life.
About two weeks ago I was browsing various visual effects news and sites and reading through a couple of articles when by chance I came by this
shot of the Pirates of the Carribean movie, and I immediately felt the urge to try and paint it. I planned to just give it an hour or two to see what I could do with it, and after that time I had the picture pretty much roughed out and from there I just kept refining it, which was a lot of fun.
I don't plan to do more fan art, really, but y'know, never say never. In any case this has been a fun change from my usual scenery and landscapes, and I hope you don't mind that.
In the end I just want to make clear that the Davy Jones character is an amazing creation of the superb team of ILM, and the film and all its contents is of course © by Walt Disney Pictures.
Am looking forward to the 3rd movie, I hope it will be as enjoyable as its prequels.
This said, I hope you do enjoy this piece, too, comments and critiques are welcome
