With its friendly social atmosphere, Yohoho! Puzzle Pirates has a thriving and active user community. Many users post fan art to the forums.

To help encourage creative pirates, Nemo heads Art Forums in The Mariner's Muse. Each Art Forum project starts with a subject of a suitably piratical bent. Then, any who wish to participate do a sketch of the subject. Participants range from complete beginners to professional artists. The community comments and gives advice and praise, and the artists move forward with the work using a variety of mediums. Eventually everyone finishes a piece, we all discuss them and compliment each other and start over with a new subject. It's great fun and can improve the work of the amateur and master alike.

There's even an on-going contest for player created portrait backgrounds where winning entries selected by Nemo are used as limited edition backgrounds in game.

Graphics editing

There are many free programs available for graphics editing. All Windows computers come with MSPaint, a basic eding program that allows for simple manipulations such as resizes. A list of various drawing programs can be found at the end of this article.
