Louis Sketchdump - Tortuga + Sister by Quarter-Virus Louis Sketchdump - Tortuga + Sister by Quarter-Virus

WARNING: OLD ART!! The art and comments in this Deviation may no longer represent the artist's current views or interests.

Homework for LASALLE College of the Arts: Dump of development sketches. Louis's pirate affiliates nor his sister will appear in the animation, but I took some time to work on them regardless. The bottom is a now-discarded comic to explore his chemistry with his sister.

So, Louis is a French pirate who wears make up and loves a english man named James who's a Comadore? Bad romance :eyes:

Love the humor and Louis the character.

I absolutly love you're art and sorry for the mistake from me before ^^;
sorry that I thought he dressed up as a woman.. really sorry!:O

I have a question: is it only English-speaking thing for calling relatives brother/sister/insert some other term in a dialog? I see it here and there around DA and other English language based sources but i haven't noticed it anywhere else.

Homosexuality within European culture has generally been looked down upon throughout history. The common punishment was death. However I don't know the extent to which this punishment was sought.

For the common European family, family was of the utmost importance. Such ideas as personal identity and expression were not fully formed nor widely practiced. If a person was homosexual in medieval and post medieval Europe, more than likely, the person's love life was of no consequence to others so long as he put family first, meaning getting married. If he had children and was able to pass along the family name, nothing else about the man really mattered, he could be a drunk, a homosexual, a poor man, or a lout.

What I am trying to say is that you should be wary of imposing 21st century concepts onto fictional historical characters. I do truly enjoy the storyline so far.

Thanks for the pointers, though I'm already aware of them as I did plenty of research myself on the matter. That said, the animation is not supposed to be an accurate representation of the prejudice against homosexuality in the 1700s; the piracy and the setting is a metaphor for the issue today in the 21st century, as it's aimed at audiences today, and should be easily comprehensible even for those who don't have a detailed knowledge of European/early American history.

It was interesting to hear another person's take on it, though, and I do keep all this feedback in mind while developing the ideas.

Thank you for your understanding. People too easily forget or are ignorant that the modern perspective we have today has not always existed, in fact has evolved with time.

Of course since you work with the graphic arts, to ask for a perfect historical representation is impossible. It also undermines the point of the comic strip, which is to pass on a story, not a history lesson.

Give my regards to Louis.

I wouldn't recommend using these since they're drawn from the imagination and therefore inaccurate; I'd suggest you draw poses based on real-life references or photos at least, but of course you can.

Love his relationship with his sister! There just aren't enough of these types of portrayals of that era or in cartoons these days. I also love the fact that despite his flamboyance and deviance from society, he really is a great big brother!
