Story time! yes! you who are bored, keep on reading :) -technical stuff at the bottom-

Once upon a time, there was a pirate lady called The Bad Wench, who was feared by all in the Seven Seas. Not only was she called that way because she was bad and a wench, but also because she had the very nasty habit of playing necromancer with her crew whenever something ill happened to them (as dying, for example)

During the same days of this woman's dreadful reign of terror, there was another pirate, almost as vile and hated as the previously mentioned excuse of a lady. This man forced others to call him The Improver, for he was certain there was nothing he couldn't, well, improve. With some tinkering here and there. And some bolts. And rope. And whatever there could be at hand.
As this improving of his also extended to his crew and whoever happened to be near, plus a very very painful process, he was avoided at all costs by everyone who knew him.

Considering he was flashy as hell, he was widely known.

These two persons not only shared terrible reputations of their own, but also a rivalry that had turned so annoying to both of them that they decided to be adults about it and meet face to face to discuss the situation.

Many drinks later, they found themselves waking up in the same bed and married. Taking into account that the path of the pirate was lonely with just dead people or screaming people around, they accepted their new bond as an acceptable solution to their problem; their highly narcissistic personalities internally thinking that the other was lucky of having found such a fortunate match as themselves.

Oddly enough, it was a fortunate match indeed. The Improver met her living-dead crew, and a world of potential opened up before him. No more complaining people screaming whenever he wanted to attach a new limb on them, no more whimpering!
And the Bad Wench could finally stopped worrying about how to find a new crew when they started rotting. It was blissful.

Right then, enjoying the advantages the other brought into their lives, it could be said that they even fell a little bit in love.

Just a little.

As the tides went by the Improved Zombies became the thing legends are made of, and thus is how we know the story today.

(Fortunately for all, no children blessed that marriage)

The End :heart:

Now to the serious bit:
Art trade with :iconrollingcherry: . The ink still needs some touching ups here and there (thus the small file), but I'll leave those for when I colour it.
The trade consisted on making a drawing on the theme "stylish dramatic zombie punk pirates with robot parts"

I think it works XD

btw, the zombies are:
1. mr. hooks
2. mr. normal zombie
3. mr. neck, who likes to abuse the previously mentioned zombies
4. miss pistol
5. mr. googles
6. mr. claw
7. miss portable cannon

for sneaky peekys you can go to the blog [link] - individual designs also are there -

materials:
rotring/ink/photoshop for editing

si es verdad,te lo digo porque a veces esos pequeños detalles son cosas que yo siento que ya nadie ve en la historieta pero bueno Gomorra, que tiempos copados eran esos dias en que la sacaron (era tan joven XD)

La idea que se casaran en vez de matarse a tiros y mutilaciones varias me encanta XD
Me muero por verlo terminado, me gusta cuando atrás de un dibujo hay algo más que lo que se puede ver

*_* such interesting concept and composition. I've read the description and the story is really insane...but I love it! :heart:
I love their designs. piratey and modern at the same time. Adds to their personality! And the crew is pure insanity! :heart:
Oh my, this would look great as a comic, that is if you ever decide on doing something like this :lol:

hehehe, thanks! It was awfully fun to do - I added some more info on them on the blog and everything-

As for a comic, the downside is that the funniest thing about them has already been told! LE GASP! out of story already, poor pirate dahlings, tsk, tsk -.-

La composición más recargada que te he visto hacer en mucho tiempo.
Está lleno de gente! :D

Me encantó la historia.
Me gusta The Improver. ( es una perra! )
Tambièn me gusta Miss Portable Cannon, que es como una especie de megaman/zombie/pirata, y me mata la amalgama de géneros :D

I really like the story of this drawing, is it from you?
Do you often create such narrations behind your works?
I really like those zombies, they have a rare depth in their field, an underlying personality, will you be doing some touching portraits of them later? ^^

I was so certain everyone was going to skip the comments bit when noticing how long it was, awww, you made me happy! :hugs: I'm glad you liked the tale! ( and yes, I always make up tales while drawing and about what I'm drawing)

the poor poor underlings might get their portraits and their tales of woe, I guess it all depends on how inspired I feel when I wake up XD (I stayed up and now I am almost as zombiefied as them o.o the horror)
