This picture I drawed on request for a really nice guy named Timothy Chandler. The picture is inspired by a story Timothy has come up with.
The story is as follows, with Timothy's own words:
'A young pirate is caught in bed with the sister of a nobleman. He is accused of rape. The girl seduced him but since he is caught and will die for being a pirate the young man does not see any reason to ruin the life of the girl found in his bed as well. He does not deny the charges'.
'The scene is his punishment. He is hoping that some of his shipmates might save him at the last moment but things do not look good. He is half naked because the guards took his nice shirt and boots as payment for his safe escort to the site of execution'.
In my picture the prisoner still has his boots, though. Call it artistic freedom.
