The Pirate's Swag

Nicknamed the Pirate due to a unique taste in clothing, I decided to fly with such a title. Personal art and photography, Steampunk things, random fandoms, and some ramblings of a starving college student all found here. c: Feel free to leave a message, I don't bite hard.

I am on hiatus! I will be back come July-August of 2015! I will miss you all, my queue will be running until it runs out. My art blog will get posts once or twice a month, too.

I hold you in high esteem if you get this joke.

I understand this reference

Oh! Bird puns!
Alright, alright, going with the crow theme — did you know, the only real difference between crows and ravens is that crows have five pinion feathers, and that ravens only have four.
So the difference between a crow and a raven? Well, that’s a matter of…..

….a pinion.

Watercolor and Photoshop
You can see my other art at be.net/AndreaMcDade
If interested in commissions, you can email me at amcdade@c.ringling.edu

Figured I’d put this up here too, final version (or very close to it at least, just need to tighten up some technical things about the watercolors)

Here’s an awesome little piece of history:
Archaeologists in the Burnt City have discovered what appears to be an ancient prosthetic eye. What makes this discovery exceptionally awesome is the striking description of how the owner and her false eye would have appeared while she was still alive and blinking:

[The eye] has a hemispherical form and a diameter of just over 2.5 cm (1 inch). It consists of very light material, probably bitumen paste. The surface of the artificial eye is covered with a thin layer of gold, engraved with a central circle (representing the iris) and gold lines patterned like sun rays. The female remains found with the artificial eye was 1.82 m tall (6 feet), much taller than ordinary women of her time. On both sides of the eye are drilled tiny holes, through which a golden thread could hold the eyeball in place. Since microscopic research has shown that the eye socket showed clear imprints of the golden thread, the eyeball must have been worn during her lifetime. The woman’s skeleton has been dated to between 2900 and 2800 BCE. 

So she was an extraordinarily tall woman walking around wearing an engraved golden eye patterned with rays like a tiny sun. What an awesome sight that must have been.

The golden tiger also known as the strawberry tiger or the golden tabby tiger. The golden tiger is an extremely rare color variation caused by a recessive gene and now found only in captive tigers. Like the white tiger it is a color form and not a separate species. Their striping is much paler than usual and may fade into spots or large prominent patches. Golden tabby tigers also tend to be larger and, due to the effect of the gene on the hair shaft, have softer fur than their orange relatives.
