Mutiny on the pirate ship for U16’s Pirates activity. Did the rule of the ship change or not – I do not know.

Pirate Sketches

I’ve been dying to try out Manga Studio because of all the good things I keep hearing about it. It was a bitch to set up, but I finally, finally succeeded after some completely stupid tweaking with the user accounts on my Windows XP. Three hoorays for both Microsoft and e frontier!Because I don’t know which to blame, I’ll blame ’em both.

I have to say that Manga Studio is pretty sweet, though. The drawing and inking capabilities are really impressive – very smooth, pleasurable and fast as hell. Working in 1200dpi is no problem at all, while Photoshop would completely choke on the same image. It was an easy transition from PS too, even though I’ve just managed to try it out with some quick pirate sketches, done straight in "ink".

Two Heads are Better than None

She once was a Nubian pirate princess, who’s ferocity was second to none. She killed men in battle, and men in bed. In fact, in the making of her doom, when she finally was caught, all the heads of all her poor, missing husbands were found – in her cabinet, reeking of blood, rot and misguided love. And as poetic justice was done, she too was sent to roam hell, lost and without her head.

They say to "kill the head and the body will die," but truly wise men know that death isn’t enough for someone who has a deal with the Devil and heads to spare.

For damned she is – but not in hell and no more without a head. Yarrr!
