Fantasy Pirate Portraits

Whenever I go through my old sketchbooks and stacks of loose bits of paper I find a whole heap of ideas, concepts, and scribbles that I want to revisit.
Be it that it's just a cool idea that I'm dying to use for something, a concept that merits further exploration, or a quick scribble that has the potential to turn into a proper piece of artwork.
That's exactly how these Fantasy Pirate Portraits came to be.

All three of these started out as quick and rough concept sketches in one of my many sketchbooks. Inspired, at the time, by Games Workshop's tabletop game Dreadfleet.
