Illustration project, "epic". Ehehehehee.
This is a long story of how I have an idea, talk to people, get better ideas, and just do something because it sounds like a fun time. And so it is. It also means I did a lot of research into clothing and boats and the anatomy of scorpions and lobsters in order to get everything the way I wanted.
The desert pirate is just Senka, who hasn't been a relevant character of mine in a long time. This new idea of making her a legit "land" pirate, so much so that she's a pirate in a desert, does give me waaaay more inspiration for her, which is always a plus and something I look forward to developing further.
