Great concept and mix of characters!! I especially like your idea for your name.

I would suggest bringing the perspective of the table down where the Capt'n is. :) It doesn't quite match the eye level behind him...and it looks a bit like he's standing on his tippy toes.

That's really all I see that needs a tweak! Very cool Wendy!

I agree with Sara. The rear of the table looks a bit too high. Are you going to give more hints in the illustration that they are on a ship? I feel like the setting is kinda hard to read at this point without seeing the floor on the left-hand side of the frame, but it looks like you're still planning it all out.

I really like the characters and interaction. Seeing one of your characters from the rear also gives the composition a nice touch.

Nice work! Can't wait to see it with color!

Definitely a nice start! I like how you're incorporating your name into the front...I should have done that with my card, and instead am sticking it in the tree all awkward like.

I like the interaction and the story that's developing here...I wonder if the parrot could be moved further right and then looking towards the table, or if at least his eyes could look in that direction - because right now it looks cool by itself, but doesn't relate to the rest of the illustration. I mean - a parrot fits into the pirate theme, but he's not involved...whereas everyone else points in at the map and/or at each other. the other way you could go is just flipping his head so he's facing their way - or even simpler his eyes could be looking towards the map.

And are you going to play up the wood paneling?

Anyhow - good job so far!

I agree with the above comments. Nice start. The change in perspective of the table is the main issue.
