So I was doodling pirates on index cards a with a friend a few days ago when we both came to a sudden realization: Female pirates are awesome. I will personally duel anyone and everyone - to the death, if need be - to defend this statement, which I now believe to be one of the Fundamental Truths of Philosophy.
This lass's name is Modesty Blackburne, a moniker she utterly fails to live up to. No doubt some disappointed parents back at home, wherever home is - I figure it'd be kinda like naming your kid "Astronaut" and watching her grow up to be a fry cook.
I'm thinking I just might upload the ridiculously high-res lines for Miss Blackburne, so that folks could slap their own colours on her (and maybe actually give her some shading, which I seem to have missed). 'Course, that depends on whether anyone actually wants to, so toss me a comment or something if'n it be yer fancy. Otherwise, meh.
