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...

Starring...
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:

Mein gott! This is genius, I'm totally in love with this AU! And I gotta say the concept of Anakin and Padmé as Davy Jones and Calypso just blew my mind. I need more of this!

Thank you! I imagine Obi-Wan would be a navy captain/admiral (who would duel Anakin when he goes all Dark Side/Davy Jones and betrays the navy :P)

Anakin would be Bill Turner, and Luke Will Turner.
Palpatine would be Davy Jones, the Kraken would be the Death Star, AND EVERYTHING MAKE SENSE !

After much deliberation, I have come up with a plot that I think best fits the characters as they appear.

Stop me if this gets boring.

Anakin, the most feared pirate on the seven seas, is recruited by Emperor Palpatine as a privateer to rid the oceans of the remaining pirates. In exchange Palpatine promises to find Anakin's long lost wife, Padme.

Spoilers: Padme is actually dead, killed by assassins sent by Palpatine himself.

Luke is a blacksmith(shocker) working in the not so seedy port royal. His sister, Leia, is under the care of the governor as an adopted daughter. the two have been friends since childhood. (No romance whatsoever because it was boring in Pirates of the Caribbean and I don't support incest)

Anakin, having some free time, decides his crew should let their hair down in Port Royal.

Two bumbling idiots (you know who they are) kidnap Leia, hoping to get a ransom of some type. Luke (being the obvious hero) recruits a shady sailor merchant by the name of Han Solo to help get her back. Along their journey luke decides, after hearing horror stories of Anakin from Han, that the pirate had murdered his parents and quietly swears revenge.

Anakin is uninterested getting a ransom for Leia but she convinces him not to kill her or throw her overboard. Anakin agrees and puts her to work. During her time on the pirate vessel Leia discovers a portrait of her mother in Anakin's cabin. She doesn't tell him because "story"

When Luke and Han finally catch up to Anakin's ship and retrieve Leia, luke tries to take advantage of a sleeping Anakin but gets half beaten to death several times over before escaping.

Being a pirate, Anakin swears vengeance on Luke.

Then more stuff happens but this text box isn't big enough for the entire synopsis. Bottom line, this could make for some awesome fanfiction, so much so that I've decided to write the prologue. :D

So when do Luke and Leia find out Anakin is actually their dad? When do Han Solo and Leia fall in love? Are Luke and Leia supposed to still be brother and sister but don't know it in this scenario?

I have a quick question yet again.

Could you post some tutorials for anatomy and the like?
Reply
:iconshorelle:
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. fyeaharttips.tumblr.com

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

*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!
