Lucky Buckles Killkenny

Lucky Buckles Killkenny

Drawn for Skallywaggs card game.

Some pirates came to me in a flash, and others I had to work a day and a night to get right. Regardless of the initial spark, the full process involved rough pencils, finished pencils, inks, scan onto the computer, vectorize (by hand!), and then color. All done and told a pirate could take 4 days from start to finish.

Lucky Buckles is a swashbuckler. The foppish, rapier wielding sword master that only existed in movies. But he should've existed in real life, which is good enough for me. BTW KillKenny does not refer to South Park. It's a place in Ireland. Just another example of our attempt to represent many, many countries in Skallywaggs.
