So this will go down as a work-in-progress week, but so far I'm pretty happy with it. All my sketches so far have been done pretty tiny, so it was great to open up on a couple big sheets of animation paper. It helped me loosen up a bunch. I wanna add a bunch more zombies and then move onto some color.

Very cool dude. Gotta give love to the flintlock. I really dig the expression on your pirate.

Me like the side burns and Jasmin does too! In fact, Jasmin loves the side burns----> she wants to touch them and braid them!

I like how monochromatic it looks. I guess we'll see how the colored final version turns out!

This shpaed up real well compared to the earler sketch Ryan. I could see ya adding some more zombie hands but I totally dig everything else about it.

Sweet, Ryan. What detail on the gun! Did you use reference? The pirate reminds me of a Thundercat for some reason. Nice work.

i like how he's gonna shoot and stab the already decapitated zombie head. Pirates are so ruthless. I really like the style.

Great idea with the skull on the end of the gun.I would maybe twist the angle just a little bit to maybe see the eye socket of the skull just a little so it regsters immediately as a skull. I didn't catch it a t first glance.

I love the angle of that skull. It's a great little bit of fascination. Keep it up!

Nice progress since the original sketch! The knife hand is still a bit odd, but the pirate face looks great now. Nice goin', Ryan.

I agree with kevin that seeing the eye would help on the skull.
I didn't get the same sense of dread - the skull doesn't seem like a huge threat, and the pirate looks like he's playing with it - but more zombies in the vicinity would help make the scene more of a battle.
I like all the effort you're putting into this - great thoughts and ideas! The shape of the pirate head is cool!
