Captain Kelonius 'Gator' Torthon by darksilvania Captain Kelonius 'Gator' Torthon by darksilvania
Another one of the weekly illustration challenges, this time it was to illustrate the words "Animal" and "Pirate" and this is what I made

His name is Kelonius Torthon, known as Captain Gator, captain of the "Black Lagoon"

He is based on an Alligator Snapping turtle, which is quite a pretty awesome turtle to begin

You should download it to aprecciate the small details, this one took quite a lot of time (and lot of ink)

well, hope u like it

Anything to add on to his menacing demeanor; Artificial limbs indicate that he lived a wild life on the high seas.

What relation does the word "kelonius" have to turtles? I noticed it on your old Turtle Powermon that were supposed to be in place of Eevee's family.

"Turtles are reptiles of the order Chelonii or Testudines" but in spanish we say Quelonius insted of Chelonii, I just swamp a K for a Q when I say it

Reminds me of the turtle dude at the beginning of "Treasure Planet,"... with a little bit of Ahab thrown in the mix. I love this design and look forward to your already awe inspiring art ideas. :w00t:

Have you ever thought aboud making your stuff into 3d? Your designs are amazing, but unpractical for most 2d works, like a comic and such(because of the amount of detail)
