Captain Blackfinger

Original drawing for Captain Blackfinger

Second drawing for the ship

From the fog he comes
Lifeless and numb
Eyes burning ember

If met with his touch
Hope won't be much
Hell would be better

Next moon is complete
Your bones will leap
From skin to become
His crew member

- A sky-sailor's tale


Captain Blackfinger's creation is a funny story. My boss, back when I was working in web design, came into work after smashing his finger with a hammer while working on his house. It was bruised and downright nasty. Somehow this story of a skeleton pirate popped into my mind. But what was the finger for? Eureka! If he touches you with it you're cursed! Thus the tale of Captain Blackfinger was born. You'll notice that during the process I discovered I wasn't completely happy with the ship I had drawn in my first attempt. So I pulled out another piece of paper and drew a new ship, complete with a skeleton parrot. Then I scanned both drawings and composited them in the computer for the final painting.
