Given 2007-11-28
Today we feature 'The Pirate King' by ~jnurp because it is an incredible piece of art whose bold colors and lighting combined with a well thought out composition make for a remarkable piece of eye candy. From the surly expression to the distant pirate, The Pirate King is an image that is highly impressive. ( Suggested by GearOtter and Featured by skifi )

Hello,

Out of curiosity, have you ever submitted this image to a Facebook/Myspace application called Elven Blood?

I am investigating a possible string of art thefts with the help of a growing number of DA members, that the developers seem to be developing a reputation for. A small handful of the images they've used in their game have credits, but the vast majority do not. I am trying to find out who's work was stolen and who's work was used with permission but not credited. Out of 7 artists that have been contacted so far, I have 6 confirmed cases (waiting for the 7th to reply) and I have a feeling there will be more as the news spreads.

If you would like to read more on this project and see if you might be able to help identify another artist's work, all the information is here:

Most of the screen shots I've managed to gather so far are here:

The pirate is cool - no doubt - but the sunset and the orange background is by far the best part.

Superbe ! Les couleurs sont magnifiques et le rendu de la texture convient parfaitement à l'ambiance général.
Seul bémol : le bas de la cape emporté par le vent qui me semble avoir un angle un peu bizarre...
(cela dit, je croitique, mais je n'aurais certainement pas fait mieux, ni même aussi bien ^^)

Very awesome! :clap: I adore that you capture the warmth and charm of traditional paint with the texture, despite the fact that this is made in Photoshop. I would have guessed that it was acrylic or oils just from looking at it! Way cool, you definitely know how to get something special out of your program.

And I just love the concept, too. Pirates are a popular subject, but this is the first monkey pirate I've ever seen. :D I also like the dynamic, dangerous look to the piece, as well as the fabulous color choices. The subtle hints of purple really pull the color scheme together. Not to mention that the relative realism of it all nearly knocked me off my feet!

Amazing job, this is really something. :#1: Keep up the amazing work!

This is extraordinary...beautiful, striking...and just a bit scary without knowing the story behind it.
I love how it is fairly simple, yet makes my mind race through several options for the story behind it.
