This takes me back. Treasure Island was the first book I'd read to the end without parents or a teacher forcing me to, back in elementary school. Then Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was translated into Turkish, and that was the start of what would eventually develop into mild bibliophilia.

Silver's leg was cut off at the hip, not the knee. That's why he needed the crutch.

Great character!

long john has the most grim look i've ever seen. The technique of your colors are from scratch, but the visuals itself are almost top notch.

wow he looks great you realy did a good job still my favorite pirate thanks for doing such a great job
apeman505 Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2008
Very cool! I love that book, and I just saw one of the movies the other day. Long John is such a snake, it's awesome! And you definitely do him justice here. Looks just like I pictured him. :)
Dinosaurprince Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2008
This is cool, a younger version of the character. You never see that. Now I feel like watching Treasure Planet!
TheCoconutGuy Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2008
this character is so cool. you never really know wich side his mind is on right now... I know he surprised me again and again as I first read that book. It was the first one I read as a child XD And I've read it a hunderd times again since then.
Falkenkralle Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
Loved the anime as a kid :)
I always have two picures of Silver in my head, one of the book and one of the anime, and you pictured the anime perfect.
And the parrot is great :D
amerime Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2008
This is awful. I mean, your art is good, but as far as portraying Long John. No. Looks like an anime Dandy trying to be a pirate. I think maybe you should read Treasure Island again.
Falkenkralle Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
I think maybe you should have read the Artist's Comment, it might have given you a hint to expect an anime character...
amerime Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2008
Yes! However, I epsied the image before reading the comments. I was not pleased, and am allowed to be displeased. This is an art site after all. I am truly sorry if you feel sour toward my opinion.

Didn't mean to offend.
Falkenkralle Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
I don't feel sour toward your opinion, I just think your comment was rather impolite. You can criticize a picture (or anything else) as much as you want, but you should still be polite.
That was the only thing I was offended about, because I understand what you mean, since I imagine Silver diffrent too, if I think about him in the book.
amerime Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2008
Alright, well, how can I be polite? "Ah yes, it is a very artistic representation of John Silver! However! He strikes me as a bit of an anime Dandy!" Sorry . . .

Yeah . . .

He's all a pirate's supposed to be: Greedy, selfish and one legged.
