I've decided that I'm gonna make this guy. He looks like a pirate already so it'll make a good starting point.

Been working on this for about an hour or so and i am quite happy with it.
It's a bit different from the refs but i like it so far. In the final he will be holding a gun towards the camera about to shoot. I'm gonna make him look like the captain of the ship and he will have the gun pointed at a ninja.

C&C welcome

Yeah, as soon as I saw the first render, my first thought was George Bush too. Looks like you're going to end up with a nice looking model there.

I'm not sure what to do with his hat. Theres the classic folder pirate hat with skull and crossbones or theres the POTC hat with three folds, maybe somthing different alltogether?

Update. Ive decided to go with a bandanna and some hair. It still needs a lot of work but I've got the base down.

I like the classic 3 fold pirate hat. How about trying him out with one and see how it looks?
