Thieves and Raiders by 1-Renaissance Thieves and Raiders by 1-Renaissance
From a novel I plan to write titled "Sagebrush"

The awesome pirate Captain Ringtail (Oslo Zorro Ringtail) of the Opal is back. This time he's with two of his crew, Deleigh the hedgehog and Sagebrush the squirrelmaid, the two youngest crewbeasts. Sagebrush isn't supposed to be the pretty one but she doesn't care. She even paints herself with black warpaint to make herself appear intimidating.

Anyhow, I sketched this to go along with the song I made up. Here goes:

We’re thieves and raiders of the sea
The world is cruel and so are we.
We do what we pleases,
Spread fever diseases,
We’re thieving raiders, born wild and free!

No one knows just where we’re bound
Cause we’re stuck goin’ round and round
Since the rudder went all a-smash
So more than likely we’re bound to crash.
Wipe that smile off your mug
Afore I beats you like a rug.
Know that water’s rising below
And if we’re to sink you’re the first to go.

We’re thieves and raiders of the sea
The world is cruel and so are we.
We do what we pleases,
Spread fever diseases,
We’re thieving raiders, born wild and free!

Avast ye there ye filthy scrub
And help patch up this leaking tub.
The greedy cook ate all the tuck
So supper’s boots and seaweed muck.
I see a ship so on with the chase
If we lose this, I’ll fish slap yer face.
If the sail tears I’ll take you aside,
And patch it with yer smelly hide.

We’re thieves and raiders of the sea.
The world is cruel and so are we.
We do what we pleases,
Spread fever diseases,
We’re thieving raiders, born wild and free!

We’re thieves and raiders of the sea.
All creatures know to fear me.
We do what we pleases,
Spread fever diseases,
We’re thieving raiders, born wild and free!

The world is cruel and so are we.
We’re thieving raiders, born wild and free!

Heh, thanks. :D And about clean, that's not exactly true since the side of my hand is silver and shiny with graphite after every sketch! :D And there's a whole lot of erasing and cursing in the mix. :D

I always wondered why Raccoons were never in Redwall, I looked it up and apparently Brian only uses animals native to Liverpool, there's apparently no raccoons. o.o
Awesome pic, though. =D

Yeah I noticed that too. In my stories I use animals native to North America. Unless of course they're foreign travelers.

I quite like this, and I wish I could hear the song. Nice shading and fur. a tip for the future would be the short lines on the deck by the rivets/bolts try to keep them all going in the same direction or vanish to a point.

You did a great job on this. It's :+fav:-ed

Heh, cute characters there! :)
Again, I love the way you do the fur - and it's interesting to see a raccoon in a Redwally world! :aww:

WHOA, *EPIC*!!!! :D :wow:

The way how you drew Sagebrush, I'm glad you're designing Lady Amber! She's going to look fantastic! :D :D :D

And I *love* the little hedgehog! Are there any extra hedgehogs in "Mossflower"? Well, I don't think there are, but I do know there would be some extra woodlanders, so maybe you can design some of them? Just some random suggestion borne of delighted shock at seeing how cute your hedgehogs are. (Not to detract from Eshva's hedgehogs, btw, her's are adorable)

But wow, you never cease to amaze me with your talent. Heh boy, there are so many talented young writers out there all in the Redwall-ish genre, I'm pretty sure my own book will have some serious competition! :D :D :D
