There. After almost a month of working on this digital painting...it is DONE :faint: I can honestly say that I think the best part is his shirt sleeve :giggle: Not sure why I am so happy with that, I tend to like random things...

I can finally say that I can paint Jones exactly how I want. It has taken me almost 7 years of practicing, trial and error. But I can finally create a piece that looks realistic. And I am finally satisfied with what I've painted. I could never escape my cartoon background, as he always had some sort of cartoonish quality. But I think I've removed that (finally).

So, no, this is not a screencap. I have proof of that: ;)

Steps 1 and 2
Steps 3 and 4
Step 5
Steps 6-8
Step 9
Step 10
Step 11
Step 12
Step 13

Countless hours of tentacles and PotC soundtrack.......I need a break... :faint:

this is also a very good rendition. I makes it very eerie having an uncomfortable conversation with Davy Jones.

Thanks. I think Jones would revel in uncomfortable conversations :giggle: It's probably all he could have.

Thats cool but I wonder who would win in a fight Davy Jones or Cpt. Edward Kenway from Assassin's Creed 4 Black Flag I bet on Kenway

Thank you! :hug: I actually don't have much patience at all. I think it's because I have such passion and devotion for drawing Disney characters that I just give it my all. :giggle:

Simply epic! Love the level of detail - all that effort clearly shows. You captured his expression spot-on. And you're right, he looks more realistic than ever. You should be really proud! :D

Thanks, love :giggle: I've always felt like I wasn't capturing his "essence". Something was always missing. That spark wasn't there. I feel like I caught it in this image. I'm still not sure what that spark is (maybe his cynical mischievousness) but I am glad to have finally captured...whatever it is... :XD:
