Pirates of Dark Water by PioPauloSantana Pirates of Dark Water by PioPauloSantana
:iconskratchjams: entry for The Pirates of Dark Water. I decided to draw the main characters because I really like them. I used to have all the character model sheets for the show because my dad worked on it as an animator back when we lived in the Philippines, I really wish I held on to them.

Character References from left to right:

Niddler
Tula
Ioz
Ren

The Pirates of Dark Water Hanna-Barbera

A long time ago, cartoons had good writing, excellent characters and memorable designs and animation.
A long time ago creators spent less time crying to us how long it takes to make cartoons and focused more on actually making them.
A long time ago cartoons looked as if they were drawn by people who actually studied art and not by simple minded children.
A long time ago cartoons had messages and parents could watch along with their kids and nod their heads,knowing that their little ones actually had something to learn.
A long time ago cartoons tackled themes that were both deep and thought-provoking.

Thank the internet and talented fans for keeping alive the things that may never be again.

Thank you very much! That movie scared the crap out of me when I was younger. I bet it's still scary now.

No problem I got mad respect for the overseas animators with crazy deadlines, the likes of which choke in merely thinking about them! Also you are amazing dude, & if you have time & if it's not an inconvenience, I'd be honored if you would critique my gallery. I completely understand if you don't have the time though.
