It's going to take a while to get used to this.

I really, really believe these pirates should rethink their recruiting methods.

They really should.

WELL. Bobblit's right; these guys really need to look into how they recruit folks. Nate never would've passed the interview stage otherwise - a pirate who's never sailed? Who is, in fact, actively terrified of water? He probably never would've sent in an application.

Although I suppose if they weren't dastardly, civilian-kidnapping villains, they'd be pretty lousy pirates.

And there wouldn't be a plot, either. So there's that.

As always, fantastic artwork. Nate's got such an expressive face and you utilize it SO well. His 'I'm gonna puke' face is my favorite one this page - which probably makes me a very mean person, but I don't much care. How much of that is actual seasickness and how much is fear, I wonder?

On the other hand, Baines doesn't have much in the way of facial expression, but he's also a skeletal evil pirate king. They're not big on moving their faces much, I hear. All that lack of flesh. XD

Your panel work is seriously improving; last page was my favorite of the entire comic to date, especially the bottom, but this one keeps up the good work! Excellent job!

Oh for sure! But his mother probably talked him up, he never really got the chance to apply personally XD

Yeah, that's very true.

Thanks so much! I try so hard with his expressions so I'm glad it works! It's not mean XD Yeah, it's a combination of things probably, and getting hit on the head might've contributed too.

There's kinda two ways to go with skeleton characters and expression, either be realistic with a lack of expression, or bend the rules a little to make them more emotive. With him, realistic seemed the way to go but i might try something different later. XD

and thanks! there's still stuff i need to improve on, but i'm definitely gonna try my best 0w0

"suppose"..
I just love this kind of understatement xD

yes, it's not easy to get even the most trivial things done on a boat ship..

Heheh! Yeah, it's going to take some getting used to.

Oh, I really hope Nate ends up doing paperwork. IF that even is a thing on board :D
Because I would rather do that than rowing, setting up sails or scrubbing the deck...

It certainly is one of the better jobs, though unfortunately for him, he can't read!
