Captain Jack Sparrow

I wanted to get the essence of Johnny Depp’s character as Captain Jack by instilling in it some of the cookyness of the character.

Captain Jack was either drunk, dirty, eccentric, and just plain weird most of the time and the only way to communicate this was through some dirty charcoal work.

Get Messy With Charcoal

The character Captain Jack Sparrow is never sober it seems and to try and convey some of his erratic behavior I had to get messy with charcoal.
