Two very different kind of pirates

Parallel to all the other projects I am currently working on, I am now taking a class at RISD. It is a small course on Zbrush, a software I've been working with for almost a year now, and that I think is one of the coolest things ever created. I decided to take the class in order to get more nimble with the program and to learn as many tricks and tips I could from teachers and students. In any case, the first thing I have to do for homework is a portrait of a Pirate. I spent my morning making a bunch of sketches, and I have a couple to show. The first one is the fictional portrait of a Somali Pirate, which I thought would be an interesting subject. I looked at a lot of pictures from news services, and is interesting and poignant to realize how many of these prates are very very young. The second sketch is for Florita, the terror of the seas!

I know... I am weirdo :)
