Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow with Davy Jones and the Black Pearl


I originally intended this piece to just be a colored pencil portrait of Johnny Depp, but with the Black Pearly worked into it as well. However, I had a hard time working the Black Pearl into the image in a way that wouldn’t influence people to make jokes about… the positioning. Thankfully, my wife Amy suggested the Pearl in the bottle and the rest started falling into place. However, I found myself having to figure out what to do with the space to the right of Jack (his left), so I decided on a graphite drawing of Davy Jones. It was meant to be light, but I kept making it a little darker because it seemed TOO light. Then I decided to add the kraken tentacles behind him. Finally, as a last stroke of inspiration, I added in Jack’s compass, which also served as a solution for the space on the other side of the bottle!

Pencil Drawing of Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow

Jack-Sparrow-2015-copy

Before I started drawing almost daily again, I worked on a Jack Sparrow portrait using the image on a birthday party plate as reference (tis true!). Since then, I’ve pushed myself with detail and taking my time with drawings and such. I decided it was high time to try my hand at a newer Jack Sparrow portrait. This one was done entirely freehand with a photo on my iPad as reference this time. And, for the record, it’s the first drawing I ever worked on on a vacation… while sitting on a beach. 🙂
