I love the weather you have chosen for this ship image. It makes the ship look fearless.

It is a shame that the fav and collection features do not also convey the level of which artworks are loved. I would give this 5 out of 5 stars!

that's a great compliment, I'll try to get the next few pages out soon where the ship finally makes its appearance and these pirates get out to sea where they belong

yeah, Vonnegut is great... the Captain is based off a friend of mine, and she was a Vonnegut fan too, so the boat's name seemed a natural pick

Wow. I invented a flying pirate ship that looked almost the same like this one, but your´s is much weirder. XD. I think I have to change my concept. ^^

This is great.

haha, yup, don't worry man, I've got a couple pages in the wings now, and i'm cleaning up past pages -- it just takes so much longer than i wanted to get a page done; i'm trying to figure out better methods now and get the hell to the good stuff soon... i hate all this exposition but it'll be worth it once the story gets going. i need to find a good webcomics site where i can plaster it up and get some exposure, too. nobody's into sequential stuff here. :horns:

hey, i still owe you a piece for that pv milestone... what'dya want, bro?

Hey, you're right (about the sequential art, and about that drawing)! Ok, so.. let's see. This is what I want... A fiersome viking polar bear (Bear dressed as a viking? o.O), sitting in a throne of iceee!! Muahaha It can be cartoony, or realistic... whatever you prefer XD Waddya say 'bout dat?? yaar!

i'm far along with latest of the next two BS pages, but the last time i said that it took me almost 6 months to finish the damn page - i gotta get some momentum on this damn thing.

They stream ahead and sail blindly. The destination unimportant as long as unequal hunters are met. Misfit is what they're after. If not to an extern power, then within their own deck.

Sharpened swords and loaded guns, powered up ZF.52 lasers canons. Today, the sail. Tomorrow, who knows..

sort of set in an non-linear timerift -- the year is actually 1945b...ahem.. uh..the planet is kind of a shattered marble cycloning through a wrinkle in time. none of that matters, really; the story is about rocking and raiding... and yes, you still have to stave off that scurvy
