We are scavenging the seven seas to see which PicsArtist can draw the most dreadful pirate picture using PicsArt drawing tools for this week’s Drawing Contest.

Pirates have a way of capturing our imaginations, and for good reason. Who doesn’t love treasure hunting in the Caribbean islands, myths of sea monsters, or a midnight swordfight along the sail of a ship sporadically lit by cannon fire? For hundreds of years, Pirates terrorized and looted the merchant and naval ships of the seas, and they did it in style. They were a tough bunch, famous for their missing limbs and tattered clothes; their lives brutal, short, and as rough as the ocean they called home.

Draw your meanest, bravest, most swashbuckling pirate for this week’s Drawing Contest, as we pay collective homage to these seafaring heroes of a forgotten time.
