I've been looking at a lot of Howard Pyle and N. C. Wyeth recently.  I love their pirate paintings, especially the colorful ones.  It reminds you that these are a bunch of savage dudes sailing around a tropical paradise.  It's a pretty funny juxtaposition.

My pirates look more like Muppets - not quite ferocious, bloodthirsty, homicidal maniacs.
