Posing like a captain

Rudi Gunther and I are old friends. We drew comics for the university paper in the same era (if I remember correctly, I think it was coined the Winters’ era). We’ve done a crossover together and I may have drawn his characters in a parody comic once. So it should be no surprise that I would draw up one of his characters for F3.

I chose Nemo because there’s something about him that screams Dread Pirate Roberts from The Princess Bride. I thought it would be a nice little challenge to see if I could capture Cary Elwes‘s likeness in a cartoon pirate.

The biggest challenge was probably the parachute pants. I’ve had my experience with parachute pants since I was a young lad and asked my mom to sew me a pair during the MC Hammer craze… but I never figured out the physics of the darn things when you have one leg up on a barrel of rum. Those swashbuckling boots were pretty fun though.

I love getting fan art. It’s wonderful to see that someone has dedicated their time and effort out of their busy schedule and made something special. If you’d like to submit some Legendary Woodsman art, please contact me.
