Am seriously loving the composition, and how the eye is immediately drawn upwards to the face of the one on top. He looks veryyyy haughty and smug! The detail on his face and the way the picture becomes more painterly around the edges is reminiscent of Baroque paintings.
I like this work of art. It's something i would hang on my wall. I like the little situation that's going on between the merciless captain and the hopeless pirate...those other bastards are just watching >.
