Drake Legend, Pirate Mage by Bosshamster Drake Legend, Pirate Mage by Bosshamster
What's this? It's not shitty (not deliberately, at least), and it's got nothing to do with Working Men!

Instead, this is an entry for Seventh Sanctum's Extreme Character Contest. The Fantasy Name Generator Extreme gave me "Drake Legend", and the Bishotron gave me the character description, which I've cunningly included within the image itself.

Drake Legend is a badass pirate mage. You will note that his cutlass is roughly as long as he is tall, and that he can shoot fire from his left hand. He can also wreathe the whole thing in flames and straight punch scurvy bilgerats, which is why he keeps it bare. Also pictured is his totally bitchin' armband, which is enchanted to make him waterproof. Guy can swim around with his arm on fire and not even give a care because that's how he rolls.
:iconbadassplz:

I'm actually damn proud of how it turned out, after about six hours of off-and-on work on it. Especially the hands. Look at those hands. I used my own for reference, which is why they're so beautiful. :3

UPDATE: Furthermore, if you want to follow the amazing adventures of Drake Legend and two of his extreme peers, you should totally check out ~SuperAshBro's fanart ([link]) and ~persephone-the-fish's fantastic comic-in-progress, starting here: [link]

Well, he's certainly a legend. I like that athletic build. Modelled on you too?

Oh yeah, for sure. :P

...Actually, now that I think about it, his build isn't far off from mine. Just more pronounced pecs.

This is pretty damned awesome. All the entries have been great so far but, personally, I really like him. I could seriously see him in some animated series as a character I fangirl over, lol :XD: And I could tell all of that just from the name you chose, nevermind the amazing artwork. And I love the style you drew him in, its reminiscent of Storm Hawks, but still totally original. (And you were right about his hands, they rock.) Awesome job! =D

That's so bad@$$! lol
I could never draw something like that in msp! (that is what you used right?)
I followed the link to your work and was like: ... "Nice!"
I plan on entering soon, but I must first get my scanner going... anyway, good luck! You'll probably be some of my toughest competition so far in this contest! XD

PS) If you check out my art on here please note that all of it on here so far is horrible compared to what I can draw now. (It's all so embarrasing!) lol

Captain Blackbeard would have to step down and let Drake Legend be captain. He doesn't take orders from anyone, no matter how big their beard is. :pirate:

Lain: LOL! That's right! XD

Arcana: -x- I wouldn't want to be a part of his nutty pirate ship...

Lain: Oh but what if Drake wanted to be an-ever-so-awesome VAMPIRATE?!! Ehh? Ehh? Arcana, what do you think?

Arcana: That vampire is NOT going to be me. --; That would make me more mary-sue-like. --;

Lain: Oh don't worry. Love in odd spaces in in the air. *flutters*

Arcana: ...and this idea has been roasting in Lain's mind for a while. --;

Something tells me Drake Legend would be completely on board with the idea of being a VAMPIRATE. ;)

I hope he actually wears the eyepatch for added piratey-ness, because the description said "his eyeS ARE".

In any case, it is in NO way shitty. You are a god at drawing. I think I may have said that before. I love your signature and your drawing style for EVERYTHING, not including Azrael Demetrius Hyperion Deathmort Bloodreaper Killdie Dragongore XVIIIII.

Also on the list of "I LOVE THIS:" The size of that cutlass's handle. About enough room for three moderately-sized hands.

And how in the hell do you do that fireball effect? It's like some sort of exploding planet or something. :+fav:

Oh and the gold glittery effect on the text is supreme.

:iconbosshamster:
Bosshamster Featured By Owner May 16, 2009
Thanks a ton, man!

Yeah, the eye patch is a classic pirate tradition - he keeps it over one eye so it gets accustomed to darkness, and then when he goes into a dark place he shifts it over to the other eye so he can see better. GENIUS. :pirate:

The fireball effect is cleverly explained here: [link] I just used the first few steps and then added a couple of my own tweaks.

I couldn't help myself...

After seeing the Collab of two of the contest entry characters (seen here [link]) I had an urge to draw my own Midnight Rogue character teamed up with Drake and :iconpersephone-the-fish:'s Chaos Sunrise, the Extreme Trio exploring a treasure cave. With both your permissions, I'd like to post this picture on DA :).

And I am pretty interested in making some sort of meetings comic that will take quite a few liberties with character back story because I'm just going to make one up for everybody. That okay?

Better. He punches squids in their beaks, sets them on fire, and uses them to punch sharks.

HE PUNCHES SHARKS WITH SQUIDS.
