PHEW! This one was an ORDEAL! I hope you enjoy this, because I gave up a whole night's worth of sleep just to finish this!
Long story short, this was a resquest made by
BillyBones0704 to have the Nicktoons be pirates. Soon, I realized that the art I was making was so big and so cool, that I had to make it into the cover for my calender project! I bet BillyBones will really like this news about his own request!
I tried to work in as many characters as I could and there are still some I wish I could have worked in. I also put in a few pirate cliches into the mix: Eye patches, hooks hands, swords, big hats with feathers, puffy sleeves, that wooden mermaid at the front of the ship, the one heartthrob we see in the pirate movies (here in the form of Danny), that "swinging from ropes" thing (which Otis is apparently too heavy for), and the classic sea monster attack.
There are also some inside jokes on the Nicktoons' parts as well:
-Patrick has two eye patches like in the SpongeBob episode, "Aargh!"
-Fanboy, Chum Chum, and Bessie's costumes come from actual episodes (neither of which have aired yet!). FB and CC's are from "Fanboy A'hoy!" and Bessie's is from "A Pirate's Life for B"
-ZIM's skin is burned by water, so he's shown here trying his best not to get wet
-Anyone remeber that Kraken? *cough*Catscratch*cough*
