Wonderful graphics and story! Really top notch.
I'd only change one thing, and that's the title. They look more like ancient plunderers or cozmic pirates! :-)

Oh man,I wouldn't have ever known to use that,that's pretty awesome man:)Does it apply pretty well on your canvas?

:iconmrtristanone:
MrTristanOne Featured By Owner May 17, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
yes, using house paint is called"synthetic polymer"some people say it's unwise to use synthetic polymer,my friend who was a pro muralist got me using synthetics,i love using them cos i use them straight from the pot,they work excellent on canvas!Andy Warhol used synthetic polymer in his work!

That's really cool Andy Warhol used it for his artworks,I never knew that.Thanks for letting me know about that,I'll have to try some out one day,I have an idea for a painting I've been wanting to do,but I need to buy a canvas and a few things.It's an abstract design in my mind,but I think it will look kind of cool,I just need some supplies:)

Thanks man,I really appreciate that a lot.I was worried about messing it up,I've never done a collaboration before.

As artists, messing up only gives us a chance to fix and improve such mistakes in the canvas. That's what makes US artists. I say this about tattoo artists, because any one who can trace can become a tattooist, but when a mistake is done, it takes a true artist to fix that mistake and make it seem seamless. You get me?

Yeah man,I agree with that.Tattooing is kind of why I started drawing again,I stopped for quite a bit,and never really was that into it as I am now.I loved drawing,but didn't know anything about it.I basically wasted all the time in my classes in high school drawing...or sleeping,lol.But,I figured if I do tattoo one day,I want to be really prepared before I just jump into it.I like deviantart because I've learned quite a bit in these few months I never would have known.

Same here. If it wasn't for the inspiration on here I wouldn't have stepped my art game up. Nothing feels better than when other artists like your stuff.

Yeah man,I know exactly what you mean,I gotta say deviantart has made me want to draw even more badly.Man,I still have a long way to go and a lot to learn,but it sure has been fun doing it,a fun learning process.
