    That bird has softened him. His expression is actually sweet.

    I like color and light in this one very much. I see a most interesting extension to Your gorgeous style domain.
    Perhaps You may also try, using such a luminous palette, to enhance a little bit the tonal range getting darker, but colored tones, and differentiate more the figures outlines color depending on the impinging light or put darker behind lighter tone and viceversa, so as they may look more seamlessly integrated into the scene and have not even the least impression of sort of "cut and paste" figures.
    I hope You would consider my observations above not at all as a critisism, rather my thoughts in front of an outstanding image and out of my admiration for Your fantastic creativity and style.

    Aww, there is so much story here Jack. I see a pirate with a little bit of heart left in him ready to resign himself to a more calmer life perhaps with his little winged companion and treasure chest. Great painting!
