I'm trying to get a portfolio going for one of my art classes, so don't be afraid to help me step out of my usual boundaries. This can be a collage, some characters, landscape or whatever! Get creative, man.
What you must do is draw one of my favorite OC couples, either Misora x Riku or Callum x Raine. Please do not use my linearts for this, or draw anything inappropriate cause that's just awkward and yeah. ;-; Also, no bases. Anywho, I can't wait to see who actually does this!
Some things about Misora and Riku...
These two are very...hmm...chill. They're not the most passionate and, for the mos
Musings of a Buccaneer, Freedom22nd April, 1667 Being an Account of the Liberties & Powers Offered by High Station, Versus as a BoucanierMusings of a Buccaneer, Freedom by ~Edward-Smee
I find myself pondering certain questions these days. After all that happened these past months, I begin to wonder at my decision to return to the Caribbean. I know it is God's Will for me to sail beneath a Black Flag, and yet, for all my blessings, there seems to be a call to return home. The Most pressing question I find myself faced with, is that of freedom. My men claim They've never had freedom until they've gone on the account. Saying, before they were bound to be beneath a King's boot. As for myself, this is true to a certain extent. In England, I have power, privilege, and birthright awaiting me, but also the laws of society, and as Charlotte so aptly put, I'm a changed man.
The liberties I am offered as a boucanier, are quite different than those offered me as a nobleman. As a Nobleman, I have coin
Beware the Sea ReaperBeware Sea Reaper, where'er she may be,Beware the Sea Reaper by ~Edward-Smee
For she serves Death out on the Sea
Her crew call the Devil their master, and Death their Queen
A more terrible Leviathan, there's ne'er been
She'll hunt down fat merchants, and plunder and kill
And when the Navy comes, Blood she will spill
So all you young sailors, take warning, take heed,
Ships blessed by death, are ships better left be
But what happens? when they account for their sins?
On a ship blessed by death, chaos begins.
The men they have killed, and made walk the plank,
Return to pass judgement from where they have sank
So dread the Sea Reaper, and dread her crew,
But pity them not, these unholy few
They'll get what's coming when the dead leave,
on this night, of All Hallows Eve....
Musings of a Buccaneer Sonet de la Dame de TortugaIn these wild seas, daughter of FranceMusings of a Buccaneer Sonet de la Dame de Tortuga by ~Edward-Smee
With bold green eyes and raven hair
Bold and fierce, We met by chance
Lucky rogue, I met you there
A Lady of exquisite taste
who fancies the bold boucaniers
To Tortuga! make sail Make haste!
And we shall meet at sunset today
I cherish my nights with thee ashore
Spent in thy arms, and in my heart
Yet to be thy sole choice would be a chore
Likewise, we agreed before the start
And As the seas do roil and roar
I shall return again, this I swore
Musings of a Buccaneer: Adapting to the Life9th November 1662 Thoughts Concerning my New Life and it's Differences from the Old.Musings of a Buccaneer: Adapting to the Life by ~Edward-Smee
Well, I've been made Captain of this sorry lot of men. Some, I've come to enjoy the company of, others I dislike. These aren't the 'Chevaliers' I'm used to. I've fallen far. I've Gone from a nobleman, to a slave, to a pyrate. And now, Pyrate Captain. As if my life couldn't get much worse. even so. I am bound by my word of honor and damned good form to stay a pyrate until I've earned 1000 pieces of 8 or served a year's time. As such, I'll try to steal a better ship to make that gold come into my hands faster.
In the meantime, I enjoy frivolities ashore. The Courts of Sin on Tortuga, are very much like the Courts Kings in Europe. Men have their wives and mistresses, debauchery is to be found on every mind, and fights and duels are incited o'er the pettiest things. The difference being, there, a harsh word against the wrong person, can ear thee a reprimand and banishment, here, a bullet

Pirate Roleplay Reference ShipsSHIPS OF BOTH THE 1600S AND 1700SPirate Roleplay Reference Ships by ~Edward-Smee
Little changed in a galleon's design... though they were mostly obsolete by the 1700s. galleons were large ships built as either warships, or merchants. the Spainards were famous for using these ships in their Anuual Treasure Fleet from the Americas back to Spain. Heavily armed, a galleon was not to be taken lightly, they generaly had 3 masts square rigged on the first two and square and fore and aft rigged on the mizzen. Sometimes they also had another mast at the end of the bowsprit so squaresails could be mounted. And some had 4 masts. In the 1600s, galleons were the principal warship and merchant form. frigats and ships of the line both were built in the galleon design (high raised stern etc) they were lavishly decorated with gilded carvings.
