Old Pirate

I felt like drawing a pirate, so I went to Google to look for references. Most of the results are pirate captains, followed by the pirate sluts, and the occasional swabby, and it's always the same: captains are rugged, masculine, tough, and heroic; the swabbies always look wimpy, frail, squirrely, and scaredy; and the sluts look like sluts.
So I thought, why not take the archetypal pirate captain and protray him washed-out and clearly past his prime, but do so in a 'heroic' manner, the way they always look?
Here's the result.
