Wow.. I thought I was the only who woke up like that. Five minutes of groaning like a zombie (actually my brother compares me to Medusa) then I get the willpower up to actually do something with that hairbrush and suddenly FABULOUS! But seriously.. if I haven't brushed my hair.. don't talk, don't move, don't even breath!

Good God my sides hurt so bad from laughing at this! So out of curiosity, if there was a female involved in the last story board (random woman on the navy ship) how would Louis react to her presence? Would he act the same or would he be more gentlemen like?

Louis doesn't hate women, it would depend on how she treats him. If she's a naval soldier, he'll treat her like one. If she's a kidnapped lady, he'll be her rescuer, etc.

Even if these don't appear in final animation, I can't wait to see it... this whole cast you have is just remarkably funny. Though you would have to do the morning one... even if it's post and just for fun, that is to funny to leave out... and the ascot thing.

Ouah, I found your drawings because a friend showed them to be, they are really amazing ! I love your artwork !! The way you draw is interesting and your style is pleasant.

Louis is really cool (actually I think pirates are often cool but Louis is even better (forgive my English, I didn't practice it for a long time)). That's funny, because one of my characters (that i didn't draw yet) is a pirate woman who dresses like a man and who looks a lot like Louis x)

These were loads of fun to "read". They have some of the humour I grew up with (Tom and Jerry, Roadrunner, etc.). I'm looking forward to seeing the final animation one day!
I do hope though that the final animation will show a little more of the great background stories you've come up with for the characters. If I understand correctly, these are just trials and may not even end up in the final animation. But maybe it helps to know how I feel someone who doesn't follow you on dA would see your animation, if you'd turn these storyboards into individual animations. If you are not interested in this kind of "critique" at this point, or ever, please disregard everything below and read this as just an "Oh! Awesome storyboards!" comment. ^^;

Louis' Morning Routine: Reminds me a little of "Perfect isn't easy" form Oliver and Co too. Which I find a hilarious song, so yay! Background info that I think is missing is the whole "thing" between Pirate Louis and Commodore James. What's Louis' most important side? Being "Fabulous"? Or being a pirate, a scoundrel on the run from Commodore James? I would love to see this scene in a longer animation, though I doubt that is going to happen, because it's not very plot relevant (for as far as I have a good grasp on what plot you are going to use).

French vs English vs Spanish: I personally think that a longer more detailed version of this scene might actually make an awesome 3 minute short. The only thing I'm slightly worried about is that the sudden appearance of the Spanish might feel completely random to those not familiar with Queen Anne's War.

Defacing the Commodore: I think half of the fun in this scene comes from the readers/viewers knowing who Louis is (a flamboyant pirate with a thing for the Commodore). This scene on its own without that background info isn't half as funny. Needs more Louis. ;)

The Commodore's Cravat: Same "problem" as "Defacing". I think half of the fun in this scene comes from the readers/viewers knowing who Louis is. This scene on its own without that background info isn't half as funny. Especially because it's not clear from these few drawings that James is a Commodore and Louis is a pirate. Needs more Louis. ;)

Escaping with the Commodore's Portrait: I personally think that a longer more detailed version of this scene might actually make an awesome 3 minute short. I'd personally add a little more about Louis being a pirate (instead of just a thief, as he might appear now) and why he's stealing this particular painting.

Louis' Introduction: It feels like this is the built up to the French Make Over picture you drew earlier. Because it reminds me of that, the storyboard now feels like a joke without the clue to me. I think the French Make Over would make a perfect introduction for Louis, but I worry that it would take up to much of the entire animation for an introduction that doesn't include Commodore James and Louis' thing for him. Or maybe I interpreted the scene wrong, and this has nothing to do with French Make Over.

I love storyboards. I love doing them (cause I'm one of those weird people that like pre-production) and I love looking at them.

Funny stuff, I lol'd at the one with the painting though I feel that some of these gags are a bit 'toony' for the design of the characters but that's just me.

Great work mate =)

I have a habit of skimming through storyboards that are too long but for yours, I've found myself looking at each picture carefully. I love these characters. ;A;

The "GO GUSTAV!" was probably my favourite. xD

You know, the more you post about him, the more I like Louis Despatis. However, as someone with a terminal case of Anglophilia, I'm still definitely on the commodore's side.

Wow! Your storyboards are gorgeous! Mine always looked like a jumble of squiggles.

The storytelling is pretty engaging in all of these, but I would wager your profs do call you on that whole "keeping it simple" thing. It isn't a bad thing though, it just shows how much fun you are having with the ideas! Top notch work!

They do, all the time. These are all roughs, though, to get something onto paper. I'm actually having a lot of trouble coming up with a set story for the three minute animation, so I start big then whittle it down later.
