Here there be pirate….dolls?

In honor of Pirates of the Carribbean III (and in an unrepentant attempt to capture search engine traffic), I’ve decided to show you some pirate dolls today.

Pirate 1 

This first one is an homage to Johnny Depp as the inimitable Cap’n Jack Sparrow, by Wendy Rinehart. Like all her work, Cap’n Jack is amusing, well-posed and well-costumed. He won an award from Jack Johnston, the creator of ProSculpt polymer clay.

My second offering is from a website called Spookbot. I haven’t found the artist’s name yet, but her adorable vintage-inspired dolls reveal a well-developed sense of style bordering on the modern spooky-primitive dolls I’ve blogged about before, but with a broader color palette. All her work is for sale, and at reasonable prices.

Megan the Buccaneer 

Finally, my favorite of today’s offerings comes from a relative newbie to the doll scene. Coming from the world of 2-d fantasy art, Patrick Keith is a real Renaissance artist, producing digital paintings as well as gaming miniatures and larger poymer-clay figures. Megan the Buccaneer is possibly his best work in its genre to date, but check out his gallery on DeviantArt.com to judge for yourself.
