Pirate (space)Ship

Sneaky ninjas, always getting away with everything. But not this week, it’s time for different adventures. This week’s theme is all about Pirates, even though it is called “Take that, Ninja”. I wanted to go back to the “artistic style” rather than the “funny concept”. I’ve always been fascinated by space travel and spaceships, and thought it would be to be cool to place a pirate ship on space. Why keep pirates at sea, when they can go beyond that. Not even the sky can limit their travels and treasure hunting!

I used some old Photoshop techniques to create the planet, so the surface pattern is very random. And as for the “clouds”, I used the same brushes and a similar technique I used on “Elements of Life”

  1. Love the Spaceship – bought 3. but the new Woot shirts have lines of ribbing in the fabric that show through the art as fine parallel black lines. I wrote to Woot about it & they asked for a picture. Their reply to the picture is that the artist drew the fine parallel black lines through the art. I don’t think so.

      I just received mine yesterday and the look very good. Maybe you are referring to the lines created by the halftone effect. Please look at the two pictures of the details in this post. We (artists) can only use 6 spot colors to create our designs, and gradient effects (like the clouds) can only be achieved by creating halftones. Please let me know if this helps. And thanks for your Awesome support!
