They look like exactly the kind of scurvy dogs who'd whip out a man's entrails with a hook and then dance a merry jig with them while you are forced to watch.Which, I suspect, is the effect you were aiming for ;)
Heehee! (affects best Mr Burns impression) Excellent! Had fun drawing their faces - probably borders on caricature but what're ya gonna do?
Pirates? Bordering on caricature? Who'd a thought it? They do look like they could be based on real people - far too many either look a little "panto" or like modern people.I also like the shading, interesting effect.
The guy on the right looks like Elvis, but that can't be a bad thing I guess.
Evil pirate Elvis?Cool.
