Pirate Tugboat – Part 1.

My friend Z.’s father had worked on a tugboat all his life, and while we were talking the other day it occurred to me, hey, I love tugboats. I should draw a tugboat. A pirate tugboat, surrounded by lots of sea creatures and mermaids and whatnot. So, I’m making the drawing. Pen and ink on a sea-greenish board.

You can see the tugboat in the center there, but right now I’m inking the frame (seaweed and crabs). I find with drawings like this, I like to start from the front and work my way to the background. I’ll be posting updates as the drawing progresses.
