I love the thought of Mal and Sean Bean inspiring you for the comodore. Firefly is one of my fav series... and I just like Bean in Sharpe:)
Though I can totaly see Clopin inspiring Louis:)

Ok I have a new nationality for you to add to this. So this is a main character from a story I'm working on already, then I found your page and saw this, witch seemed a lot like what I was working on already, So now I just have share.

A strange but logic side note I see here.
Louis (being in comparision with the other two, the most complex character) have a nice array of references, instead of Santiago, which is a more "direct and lineal" character, that has fewer references.
Is good and nice reference board this one ^^

Santiago is definitely more linear, but all three characters are still a work in progress. =)

SO THAT'S WHO SANTIAGO REMINDS ME OF. CORTES. That has been puzzling me FOREVER. And of course clopin is part of the inspiration for Louis.

DIdn't know who prince Poppycock is.
Looked after it.
Now my headcanon is that Louis is a great singer.

I imagine he is, too, but he's not operetta like Poppycock. He's 80's glam rock, like David Bowie or Adam Ant.

No no, not like operetta, but still with a charming and powerful voice like a lyric singer can have ^^

No problem, I'm sure mood boards like this are easily done for characters in literature as well. And I'm always too happy to introduce people to Adam Ant.

Aww, I think he's your favorite still though. It's okay - he deserves it! He's by far the most entertaining and complex.

I couldn't figure out why I loved Captain Louis so much until you brought this out. I love Prince Poppycock, Bayonetta, and Adam Lambert. So now I know why I love Captain Louis.

So you ended up giving the spaniard a name too. xD

This sounds like a joke. "A spaniard, an english and a french..."

If you ever need help with Spanish, do not fret to ask! I'd be willing to help (and make my mother lingo of some use ;;;)

This is so interesting! ^_^

I was just wondering, have you ever seen the anime Fruits Basket, specifically the English dubbed version. I bring it up because every time I see Louis, I think of Ayame. It just seems like Louis would have those mannerisms and especially that voice. If you have seen it, I would love to know your thoughts on how you think they compare.

And if you haven't seen it, watch it because Ayame is a hoot an a half.

I hear. I suppose nowadays liking anime has become the equivalent of liking the Twilight series. Unfortunate, seeing as there are several really decent ones out there.

Anyway, I don't want to sound pushy here, but I would love it if you could take a look at him and tell me your thoughts. If the mood should strike, I included a link. Full Ayame mode doesn't quite hit until 5 mins in, but then it is a straight shot of his antics till the end of the video.

And also, I really, REALLY love your work. You are incredibly talented. I always look forward to seeing your stuff here on dA.

I think you misunderstand me: I dislike anime and manga with a passion, I usually fail to find their characters or stories interesting, but it's especially the art style that drives me up the wall, and the lack of any decent animation in the actual animes. All the characters walk, talk, and make gestures the same way. On a time-saving basis I can see why they do it, but I still hate it.

But I took a look and I have to say that Ayame is way, way off. Louis doesn't talk like that, nor does he behave like that unless he absolutely wants to push someone's buttons. How would a pirate crew take him seriously if he was flaming his way around the deck? But thank you anyway.

Oh, and I also wanted to thank you for bothering to even reply to this. I honestly just felt like throwing in my two cents for the hell of it. I really wasn't expecting a reply considering the flood of comments and questions (that are far more interesting) you get. Also considering the fact that you don't like anime to begin with, it was really nice of you to even bother watching that video at all.

Mostly, I'm hoping that this will save me from seeming like a mindlessly obsessed anime fangirl, but I don't think I'm doing a very good job. I'm just gonna pick up the shattered remnants of my self-respect off the floor and go away now.

I get it. I definitely understand that much of the time the animation is usually pretty redundant, and though I personally don't mind it so much, I understand that it is not for everyone. Perhaps it makes my tastes a little low-brow, but what can I do?

Thanks for taking a look anyway. I appreciate it. And I definitely look forward to seeing Louis fully animated in all his glory. Again, I am a huge admirer of your work and I always look forward to seeing your new stuff.
