Sky Pirates by mikemaihack Sky Pirates by mikemaihack
Commission for a couple of sky pirates. Had a blast with this one. Even came up with a great story surrounding these two that I'll likely never have the time to draw.

cool, gotta love those stories that spark the inspiration....but are never told. tiny bits of gold we get to keep, but hopefully never wasted.

I hope I never waste it! Usually things kinds of stories tend to get rolled into my other projects. :)

Hmm.. I dunno. I think there's enough subtle differences. Sorry it's not to your liking though.

BTW- checked out your gallery. Some nice work! :)

sorry i guess that was kind of a douchebag thing for me to say. i just think there are ways you could push your each faces distinctiveness without actually having to change your style at all.

different eye shapes. eyelash shapes. the fill of the iris. like black solid or with a pupil.

you could change the look of the cheekbones by shifting the curve up and down. a square jaw vs a round one vs a heart shaped one.

mouths curve up and down in different ways when theyre at rest. and sit above the chin at different heights.

i dunno man i think your style is great. i liked it ever since cow and buffalo. i just dont think youve experimented enough with it.

Those are good suggestions. I do try to do that some of that but could prob push it further in some cases. I have in the past for more specific likenesses:

I suppose more than often I just want to keep things more generic. Especially for younger characters. To me its more important the personality shines through.

yeah i guess but i sorta figured the face was the lens that personality goes through


either way dont get me wrong. i love your art. keep on doing what youre doing man

No worries, man! I take every crit seriously. To not do so would make be a pretty conceded thing to do as a cartoonist.

So I take it they fly planes and hijack other planes in the air? Their clothing is a little skimpy considering the altitudes at which they fight.

Or maybe they fly low altitudes zeppelins and raid ships in tropical seas. That could work.
