... Because he quite literally hunts down Louis. His motivations changed from hating Louis for his gender, to hating Louis because of the crimes he commits. Just because a story has a gay character doesn't mean everything should revolve around his preferences.

OMG there are so many things in carater creation one must take under consideration. Like James' collar for example. I would never though of what impression would it make. You should write a guide to caracter design xD

Wow this was so long ago. Man I'm bad at commenting but I think this time it was a good thing. Now I get to go back in time and read your process on this. :D Haha, James with curlies! Heehee.

Now, I absolutely loves James and really want to marry him.
However - and please correct me if I'm wrong, I'll be the first to admit that most of my naval knowledge from this general time period comes from the Aubrey-Maturin series by Patrick O'Brian - I thought that Commodore was, in the BRN, a temporary title given to a post-captain who commanded squadrons of more than one ship, like if they were doing a battle and needed someone in charge of the thing as a whole instead of just his own ship? Although actually, I suppose you could be kept in command of the squadron for a very long time if the ships in the squadron are in a semi-permanent state of commission together... In any case he's gorgeous and funny and I love him. Really. Forgive my rambles!

May I also add that I recently got rejected by a college and your pirates and commodores and hapless ensigns have really cheered me up? You're awesome.

I think that's what a Commodore is like. In the bigger scheme of things James starts as a captain and works his way up. He comes from humble beginnings, unlike Louis the pirate Captain, who ironically is born into the French aristocracy. But I'll be doing a lot more research before turning the characters' stories into a graphic novel, as I'd like to do someday.

I'm sorry to hear about your college troubles, and hope they start to look up soon. I'm also very glad that my stuff helped to brighten your day even a little bit. It's always great to hear.

Awesome character designs, mate. And I like the plot ideas behind the two! I do agree with one of the commenters that the ridiculous proportions of Louis clash a little with the relatively normal proportions of James Hunter, but other than that they look great! :P

Just something to consider, but the extremely exaggerated build you have for Louis make's James's more realistic build look somewhat out of place.

:iconquarter-virus:
Quarter-Virus Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2012  Professional Filmographer
I have considered this and James's design especially may still change. However, I've also designed several members of the British society to share his same level of cartoon-realism, whereas Louis and his crew have ridiculous proportions to set them apart.

Ah. Yeah, having the juxtaposition be larger than just the two characters should make things make more sense.

I'm stoked to see this animation when you finish it. These two look so interesting so far, and knowing your dedication, they'll probably evolve FABULOUSLY. :) Are you planning a one-shot short for them, or perhaps a series?

These characters are for a three minute animated short that will probably involve some plot or story that will have nooooothing to do with the comics and bits I'm uploading up here right now. I have thought of many possible scenarios for the characters involved, however, so I'd someday like to get around to illustrating some comics about them.

Pholcidae Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2012
Well then I'm very excited to see how the true plot unfolds. Any spoilers, or is it still a surprise? And I hope you do decide to create comics surrounding them, particularly some of the "extras" that you were sketching out (the other pirates, the first mate, etc), along with the star duo of course.

So far I have story ideas involving his niece - the tomboyish little girl - who is, in true Disney fashion, his biggest weakness. Family tragedy on Louis's side, the "Siren Sisters" - vicious lesbian pirates who enjoy spreading rumors of mermaid who lure sailors to their deaths on the rocks surrounding the islands ... a complete blowout between Louis and James that has all thoughts of flirting flying out the window and they just want each other dead ...

And I take back my previous comment on Louis' voice. He'd likely be more Maximillion Pegasus from Yu-Gi-Oh!.

So, did you realize the heels were pretty much lethal weapons on their own before or after I commented?

Eh, who am I kidding, it was probably before. Least I got what you were going for with them.

I adore your Commodore. :B

Someone else suggested the Horatio Hornblower series for some uniform inspration, I would like to add Master and Commander to that, along with some very amazing books by Osprey publishing...though they are not something one finds in most book stores. They are some of the best military historical references out there. To name a few:

No problem, spreading good historical resource is its own reward. I'll warn you though, the text is short yet insanely dry reading, but then I am usually using them just for the pictures.

It's a great story, and you'd be interested to see the resemblances ouo So I'd highly recommend it >u< It's a musical, and there's a movie or two as well (and a book no doubt). I suggest the one with Ian McKellen in it. If you listen to the soundtrack of the musical, the songs are really brilliant, too :D
