Tortuga by Night by Katikut Tortuga by Night by Katikut
(line: flash, color: photoshop)
Tortugaaaa! I know I was supposed to work! But I wanted to finish this pic I've started one year ago!
I was inspired by the attraction Pirates of the Caribbean. (and Monkey Island of course)
The last movie wasn't really bad, (I adore the end with the maelstrom) but the Calipso thing.. yerk.. WTF?

Sorry, I wanted to put some rum in this pic but it was too much!

(line: flash, couleurs: photoshop)
Tortuga!!!! Je sais je suis supposé travailler! Mais je voulais terminer ce dessin dont j'avais fait l'esquisse il y a deja plus d'un an!. Il n'est pas le seul dans ce cas!
J'étais inspirée par l'attraction PotC, et Monkey Island biensur.
Le dernier film n'était pas trop mal mais certains passages étaient plus que moyen. Calipso qui grandit, mais pour quoi faire? lol Sinon la scène finale avec le tourbillon j'ai beaucoup aimé la musique, les effets spéciaux, le rythme...

J'ai voulu intégrer un tonneau de rhum dans ce dessin, mais ça faisait trop! loool

Your drawings remind me so much of Monkey Island that I had to comment on it. It's beautiful and very atmospheric.

Very well the MI look to it! (The clouds really show it!)

You just know there´s an incredibly drunken party going on behind those walls, but here, it´s quiet... I wonder who lighted that fire?
I love the way you did the clouds and the stars, and the reflections at sea. The ship makes everything perfect. It absolutely captures the feel of Tortuga that I love so much!
I adored this piece before I came to DA, and now that I´ve found it again, how can I not fav it? :D :+fav:
