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:

HOW do you draw him so damn well?!?! Your detail is amazing!

I love this scene... I just wish I could FIND it (the full version video, anyways)!

LOL It has taken me ten years to get to this point. And it takes me many month to just finish one piece of Jones.

Happy to meet another Jones fan BTW. Check YouTube. There might be something floating around if Disney hasn't had it removed ;)

Wow! I imagine it would take a while to draw him!! I'm planning a story about him.... I know that will take me quite a while to write. He's complicated lol

Can't wait to see more from you!

Also happy to meet another fan! I've looked all over for that video and all I've come up with is a fandub of it. Someday I'll find it! lol

Disney is pretty vigilant in removing any videos it normally doesn't release on its own, I guess.

Gosh, I haven't written any Jones fanfiction in years. I've been super neglectful ^^; Good luck with your writing :D

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

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:
