Pirate King Lizzie by CapnFlynn Pirate King Lizzie by CapnFlynn
I'm probably in the minority, but I really really liked Elizabeth's story arc through the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. (You know Elizabeth's the main character, right? That Jack Sparrow fellow is all very amusing, but the story begins and ends with Lizzie. Discuss! ;p )

Old sketch with some quick colours thrown on. It's ... very green. It didn't look this green on my laptop! I shall justify it by saying it's that before-a-storm greenish hue you get in the air ... yes, that's it!

Hope everyone's doing great--thanks for looking!

That's what I likes about the whole series. Everyone had thier own path including Elizabeth She wanted to be a pirate and more than that; PIRATE KING. How is that not amazing?????!!!!!!!!! And the best part is she did get a happy ending after cursed skeletons, a sea monster, and an entire war. ^^)

Bang up job with this contribuation. ^^ The colors and details match perfectly. P)

Thank you so much! It's been so long now since I've watched the movies, I really need to do it again. Definitely Elizabeth's character had the most interesting arc. :D

She's so pretty!
Love you depiction of her =D
I would only say that her hair is too light for the rest of the picture, but that's my only observation! ^^

And you are not alone, mate! :ahoy:
Jack and Lizzie are, equally, my top favorite characters on PotC franchise - I always thought she had an important hole on the story ;)

In my opinion - and going against the majority as well - the second movie is the best, because it created a completely new approach on their story and brought Davy Jones and Tia Dalma!! *o*
It isn't the perfect movie only because of the 3rd one, that did not explain almost any of the ''mysteries'' of the 2nd movie =/

You're right about storms. Before a tornado hits, there is a slight greenish tinge to the atmosphere. It makes for a very violent situation. By the way, could you do Will?

=^__^= I grew up in tornado country myself, so I am well familiar with the phenomenon.

I'd love to draw Will (and the rest of the cast too, while we're at it), but there's a lot of drawing I'd love to do that I simply don't have time for, unfortunately.

Woohoo, love this picture and I totally agree with you.

[And yes Hayden Panettiere as a pirate is a frightening notion, indeed]

PotC 2 and 3 never happened.

Because they had to S t r e t c h the story out into 3 movies, they had to completeley change the Ride it was based on.

I got... Mixed feelings about Davey Jones.
On one hand, he's badass. The Flying Dutchman is a badass Floating TANK. (or tankard... or whathave you)

on the other hand... he's just not a fish. a fish that got KILLED by Orlando Bloom because he lost the box containing his life-support- AH! I mean, the LEGENDARY Dead-Man's Chest, containing the still beating, humanoid heart of Davey Jones!
(Fun fact! "Dead Man's Chest" is actually Pirate Jargen for a Coffin.)

love the picture and how you've styled it, not sure about the bleech and kiiinda sun burnt face colours but, none-the less, its really cool. I always liked her king outfit, thought it looked pretty epic! I'm a fan of lizzie too, although, the story to me is a main part of Jack's life! Can't wait to see if there will be a pirates 4! x

There isn't enough fanart of Elizabeth in her Pirate King outfit. I actually loved how she looked in that! Kinda would've liked to see that part of the story get more attention (Kinda didn't like the ending honestly, it wasn't as epic as I was hoping)

Cuuuute! I love that you drew her in this outfit: it's my fav of hers.

As for the discussion....bleh, I didn't really care too much for her as the movies went on. I liked her in the first film, when she was girly and scared and such...she got too capable, too fast! But I guess it helps that your boyfriend is a swordsmith/sometimes-pirate!

I did enjoy her change of character though the series of movies. Here is an interesting thought though. I think that Elizabeth had the Kiss of Death. Think about it! Every one she ever kissed dies immediately afterward (Accept for Will in the First Movie, but he does die later) in the movies.
Observe:
1. Jack and then he eaten by the Kraken
2. Sao Feng and then he dies from a Cannonball
3. Nortington who is then Killed by Davy Jones
4. Will and then He has his heart cut out.

The woman is cursed! But since Will is technically a dead man anyway, the curse stops with him. Interesting no?

haha. Thats very true. Now he can't die because of her kiss of death! Its a good thing she wasn't some kind of floozy or the whole crew would have died of "unexpected causes"

It's a great sketch-- very dynamic-- but Lizzie is so blond that she kind of looks like a piratical Hayden Panettiere.

Personally, I wasn't that crazy about her character, but I didn't hate her as much as I thought I would. However, I have avoided the third movie... I was told by everyone I knew that it would really infuriate me.

DISAGREE. DISAGREE. FULLY DISAGREE.

1st; started with (young) Elizabeth, ended with Jack
2nd; started with oh so sad Elizabeth, ended with Barbossa (due to Elizabeth being a *several names here* and killing Jack)
3rd; started with ...I forgot his name and ended with Jack.

:>

I took that a little too literally, didn't I?
WHO CARES. *clings to Jack*

On the other hand; sweet piclol

I loved Elizabeth, she was always such an essential part in the whole story and i dont understand why so many ppl dislike her. If they were in her position would they have done anything different? I dont think i would have. Shes so cool in the third movie, shes one kick ass chick!

Ooh, pretty! I love the colour scheme. :D

I wasn't a fan of Elizabeth in the first and second movies, but by the third I was thinking "okay, maybe she's pretty awesome after all". She definitely had the most character growth, IMO.

Still sad about Norrington though. :(

Now I need to go rewatch the trilogy...

Cool!! I actually didn't care for Lizzie's character...the whole romantic line of the plot was pretty weak- seemed kinda just thrown in there to "disneyfy" the movie :shrug:

but this is very cool!!

LOVE IT! I am one of those who also think that the whole trilogy is about Elizabeth (and Will, of course ;)). It starts with them as children and ends with that great shot of captain inmortal at the end of the credits... *faints*

At World´s End is on tv right now, what a coincidence ^^
