September 2003: Pirate Gargoyles!

We've got Cabin Fever!!! (sorry couldn't resist) As a result of Disney's awesome new movie Pirates of the Caribbean (and the fact it seems like all the fandom 'art chika's' have cabin fever), our topic is Pirate Gargoyles! Create your own pirate gargoyle or dress up any fanfic gargoyle or canon gargoyle as a pirate from the show! :D

Title: Brooklyn's Bonnie lass?
Artist: Heather H. [Heather's Side7 Art Gallery]
I just had to. I love Pirates of the Caribbean so much and I had a lightbulb come on of Brooklyn having somewhat the personality of Captain Jack Sparrow... So here is one for a good laugh. :)

Title: The Red Corsair
Artist: Tribun [Tribun's Gargoyles Page]
So finally we know, why he is called the "Red Corsair"!
In a time were the blade was the law, he is out there to make wealth and fighting for fame, to be allowed to marry his love. Ever one step before the Spanish pirate hunters, he will to everything to reach his goal.
I planned this as a cinema poster, but had no more space for the credits. But not that this makes the picture less enjoyable.

Title: "Why the MGC Staff -really- chose this topic"
Artist: Angie "Jessie" McClelland [Dakota's Ridge]
This just popped into my head one day so I decided to sketch it out *L*
Some of you may be saying "Hey! Where are those guys' wings??" I think that seafaring gargs would be wing-less, otherwise they might get caught in the ropes and get in the way. But that's just me.

Title: Pirates
Artist: Katja (Blue Gargess)
I've been doing some pirate sketches for the past couple of months and consiquently hated every one of them. I was then listening to my Y Kant Tori Read album (back before Tori Amos went solo) and the song 'Pirates' came on. I then got the idea to make Tori a gargoyle and do a parody of her album cover which portrays her in a bucaneer outfit with a sword. On that note, the lyrics:
here is a light that shines on the frontier
pirates yeah pirates
and on a dark night when you feel lonely
and the world just can't understand you
pirates yeah pirates

Title: Pirate Demona
Artist: Lilly & Aranesh [Aranesh's Lair]
Not too long ago, a lot of mysteries evolved around pirates. Most of them were men, but do they have to be men Do they have to be human at all?

Title: Captain Hookwing
Artist: Foxx Laverinth [Habernaki Lane]
I didn't even think of the pun on his name until AFTER I'd done the pic. >.< Silly me. I tried a simplistic technique on the background and I rather like it.

Title: Hudson on the High Seas
Artist: Spike [The Rockaway]
"Motorcycles? What th' devil are ye messin' about wi' motorcycles? Where's th' challenge in that?" Hudson narrowed his eyes in disgust at the Trio who doing their best to look anywhere but at him. "Now in my day, we knew th' best way t' prove a warrior's worth was t' go huntin' Vikings. Those pirates never knew what hit 'em -- we'd knock th' crew overboard an' send their ships out t' sea." He snorted indignantly. "Motorcyles --- bah!"

Funny thing about old gargoyles...they used to be young troublemakers. *L*
