Character Design Challenge #481 – Pirates – With A Twist

Your CDC challenge this week is to create an original pirate character…but not your same old, run of the mill pirate. You will need to change it up somehow, in order to snatch the win. Maybe it is a change in gender or ethnicity. Or blend the pirate theme with something like steam or cyberpunk. Use your creativity and have fun
The winning entrant will receive a HM3 version of their character rendered by yours truly.
The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way.
Rules for posts, contests, and challenges:
Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters.No characters based on Official RPG NPC's ( Non-Player Characters ). Please keep all submissions PG13. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warning. Only post characters that have been created solely using Hero Machine, and that you know for certain have never been entered in a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.
All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like the HeroMachine :,ImageShack, Deviant Art, or whatever); Do NOT use Photobucket
• Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
• Please name your filesas [your name]-[character name].[file extension] before you upload it. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his “Bayou Belle” character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.
Please make the link go directly to the image (like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this).
This contest will close on Monday, October 26th at 6:00pm Eastern

    To be the most feared pirate, you have to be ruthless, cunning, and quick. Captain Silver is everyone of those, and if you see his ship, he most likely see’s yours, so you better sail quickly. But, eventually everyones time has to come, and Admiral Hughes sought to that, and with the bribing of Captain Silvers crew, his tearony has ended… So everyone thought.
