Calypso by scarypet Calypso by scarypet
Tia Dalma's Calypso persona (well.... the un-scary un-wrathful version)
I used a Non-Pirates photo of Naomie Harris as a reference...
I also tried to work with a different set of colors for this one..

Inspired by Tia Dalma/Calypso, from the Pirates of the Caribbean Movies.


Maybe she clothed herself in the sails and rigging of sunken ships.. (since she was 50 ft. tall and such..)

Nassau's gone funky 
Nassau's gone soul 
We've got a doggone beat now 
We gonna call our very own 

Nassau rock and Nassau roll 
Nassau's got a whole lotta soul 


Huh 
Feel alright 


Mini skirts 
Maxi skirts 
And afro-haired dudes 
People doin' their own thing 
They don't care 'bout me or you 


Nassau's gone funky 
Nassau's gone soul 
And we've got a doggone beat now 
We gonna take care of business too 


Listen to ze drummer, lay down his beat 
Listen to ze bass man play zat same groovy beat 
Attend the guitars is that soulsome tune 
L'organ aussi! 
Et les horns, oui, oui 
Hors 


Funky Nassau 
Nassau funky 
Alors, puis-je jouier s'il vous plait 


New York you know 
Has got a lot of soul, soul 
And London Town 
Is too doggone cold, too cold, hey 
Nassau's got sunshine 
And this you all know 
But we all go funky 
We got some soul, too, yeah 

Yeah-yo 
Yeah-yo 
Yeah-yo 
Yeah-yo 


Trumpet! Encore une fois! 

Funky Nassau, funky Nassau 
Funky Nassau, funky Nassau 
Funky Nassau, funky Nassau 
Funky Nassau, funky Nassau

it is awesome work ;)
i'm watching Pirates of the Caribbean at world's end and i think her 'problem' was the fact that the pirate lords bound her in a human form when she was the godess of the sea, which meant she was cut off from the ocean and trapped in a single human form when she was the sea itself. So I can understand why she was furious at them and when they finally released her from her human bonds she was so angry at them she wanted revenge.
Oh and the fact that her beloved betrayed her and told the pirate lords how to torture her by trapping her in a human body and cutting her off from the ocean. :D I WROTE SO MUCH!!!

Hope that helped ^_^

"Our World's about to break.
Tormented and Attacked
Lost from when we wake
With no way to go back
