This was my Painter's entry from Reapercon this year (I got a bronze! Yay! And a silver manufacturer's award! YAY!). Unfortunately, the camera was slightly off level when they took the picture at reapercon, so I straightened it up. I named her Chuntao which means 'spring peach'.
My sister loves Pandas, but I refuse to give her this one, so I'm currently painting up one for her birthday.
I be a pirate!
And so be ye.
So let's all drink rum
and shove off ta sea.
Ye be the captain
and I be first mate
We both be drunken pirates
on this pirate speak'n date
Follow'n the map
X shows us tha way
To booty and plunder
On Talk Like a Pirate Day!
How can there not be a talk like a pirate day thread here?
Perhaps it should be Paint (like) a Pirate day.
Perhaps we should all try and paint a pirate today? Yarr. I be thinkin I'll try.

Well I finally made it to Reapercon. What a blast! I met so many amazing people. I met some fantastic artists, some of whom were kind enough to give me some advice on my entries in the painting contest and help me take things to the next level. In particular, Aaron Lovejoy, David Diamondstone and Brien Piersol gave me specific feedback and advice on this piece that I was able to implement before I entered it.
My idea for this figure was that she is standing at the edge of a spaceport on an alien planet with the last light of a setting star reaching her through the shadows of a city skyline. Sort of like the cover of a sci-fi magazine from the 60's. I'm really happy with the way the lighting worked out, especially the shadows and the reflections. I am also really happy with the way her face turned out. I tried to make her expression sort of wistful and tired, as though "Life on Vega" was not turning out to be everything she had hoped for.
