Star Wars Pirate AU, a.k.a.
Pirates of the Kessel Run: Curse of the Millenium Pearl

on tumblr: [link]


combining two of my favourite movies! :D

so I was listening to Davy Jones’ theme for hours, and went “hey this reminds me of a sad, nautical mash-up of Across the Stars and the Imperial March??” (srsly, the music box tune vs when the drums kick in)… then “hey, Anakin/Vader is basically Davy Jones, Captain of the Flying Dutchman Executor" and then this AU spawned in my brain. the parallels are based more on personalities/roles, ignore family relations...

Luke Skywalker as Will Turner
Han Solo as Captain Jack Sparrow
Chewbacca as First Mate Gibbs
Leia Organa as Elizabeth Swann
Grand Moff Tarkin as Cutler Beckett
Padme Amidala as Tia Dalma/Calypso
Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader as Captain Davy Jones
Emperor Palpatine as His Imperial Majesty, King George II

and speaking of songs... clearly He's A Pirate = the Force theme and Two Hornpipes (Tortuga) = the Star Wars Cantina :XD:

also I just wanted to try completely reversing the environment of the Anakin vs Obi-Wan final duel… (not that typhoons and giant space kraken are much of an improvement, ahaha) :noes:

I have a quick question yet again.

Could you post some tutorials for anatomy and the like?
shorelle Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ahhh I'm still a massive anatomy n00b and still use tutorials that I find around the internets! I tend to save them and then lose the original link, but there's a few art reference tumblrs that have a collection of great tutorials (a lot of them to do with anatomy) e.g.

Old-fashioned anatomy/figure drawing books are also really helpful! I recommend the ones by Andrew Loomis (they're free online as PDFs :D) and if you want to go really deeply into how the body works, Artistic Anatomy by Paul Richer is very detailed! I hope that helps as a starting point :D

I'm writing a fanfiction on this, so is it okay if I use your character designs?  I'll alter them a little so I'm not exactly plagarizing
shorelle Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, that's totally fine! :D

*slow clap* Yet another way to break the Cari's feels. Alas, the feels have spoken, and the muse holds a gun to my head, demanding I ask this of you once more' may I have permission to turn this epic piece into a bit of sh*ty writing by yours truly. (Okay, not entrily sh*ty)
*bows once more, before punching muse in the face* That's what you get for holding me a frickin' gunpoint!

Aww, I want this so bad!!
Tarkin is perfect in that outfit and the Anakin / Davy Jones parallel is fascinating. I really love all these designs. :heart:

Thank you so much! I'm glad you like the designs! :love: :huggle:
