“Yo, ho, ho, and a bottle of rum!”. That is the common phrase that we all associate pirates with and I couldn't even tell you why. I guess it's because of the many tales that are spread throughout history that tell how pirates sing the song of joy about what they love to do, drink barrels of rum, and steal from other ships. Today I will be filling a request and submitting a tutorial that will show you "how to draw a pirate, step by step”. This is going to be a fun lesson because the character you will be drawing is a very simplified concept of a cartoon style pirate. I do already have a sketch of a pirate that I drew almost three years ago, and that is of Captain Jack Sparrow from “Pirates of the Caribbean”. I seriously have to redo that lesson because it looks so amateurish compared to the way I draw now. I had a ton of fun sketching out this pirate concept, and to make him seem even more typical, I drew him with a peg leg, and he is also accompanied by his talking parrot, Polly which is gently resting on his arm. To finish off the thief, I drew him a nice typical looking pirate hat, and some typical looking gear that you will often see these water villains wearing. Did you know that the youngest pirate to sail the seven seas was John King? It's true, John King was a passenger on one of the ships that Black Sam invaded. When he was turned into a pirate he was still a juvenile. Anyway, that just goes to show you that you could be going about your business, and still be turned into a sea dwelling thief. That just about does it for me, have fun learning “how to draw a pirate”, step by step. I will be back with more drawing fun so stay on to see what pops up next. Peace out peeps, and keep the barrel of rum hidden from well known thieves.
