Phantom Doodle

I did this little doodle yesterday for a forum contest. The contest was about over coming some sort of obstacle, real or imaginary, to turn in your entry on time. I've been playing a lot of The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass lately and had just died after nearly completing a nine level dungeon thanks to a Phantom (big fella with the horns), so I kinda had those on the brain.

Eww, only 400 pixels wide eh? I did bump it to 500, but blogger cut the image off. What's a girl to do?

I've been doing a bunch of avatars for flagmates lately. Here's a few from my current set of commissions.

The pirates who request these usually ask for something that relates to their piratey persona, or to their real life professions. It's fun to see what I can come up with based of their suggestions and what I know about them based on my interactions with them. Avatars are often used to identify posters, and a popular artist can find themselves suddenly swamped with demands if their art is being used by more popular posters.

I also have made avatars for myself and Mina, both of which relate to hockey:

She plays, so I have her in her gear and I'm lazy and just watch, so I have Sharkie and my Aphrodite doll (a rare in game trinket that I won) cheering the Sharks on. Good times.

In case you are wondering, these are purchased with in game money, called Pieces of Eight, or poe, for short. No real money changes hands. Those who sell to players on green oceans may ask for dubs (dubloons, a second form of currancy used only on "green" oceans. "Green" oceans are oceans that take their names from various types of green.) , which while purchased with real money are not actually worth anything in real life, and are about equal to poe based prices.
