My Grandfather was a gunsmith. I remember spending hours in his shop watching him work is craft on some amazing shotguns. Though this image was not a shotgun I can't help but think about him while I was painting it. I miss him a lot.
What is a pirate adventure without a flintlock pistol? In fact, I think you would have to search a long time to find a pirate image without one. I'm going to make a few more of these soon. Perhaps something with a more "Steampunk" feel to it.
