star wars pirate AU by shorelle star wars pirate AU by shorelle
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:

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!

I just saw this on tumblr and I swear I'm still grinning! Why do you always make me want things that I never knew I wanted?

Light saber fights on a pirate ship, I'd pay good money to see that.

Star Wars and Pirates seem so fitting together. How come this has never been done before, but I have to say I love it best in your airy style. Anakin and Padme are so perfect (that goes without saying) :iconlovemoteplz: but I love how you handled the trilogy as well. Fantastic job. I just love this!

I actually have never seen POTC before.. well maybe once a long time ago but that was the only time. I have no idea what happens in the series.

Ahhh, thank you so much!! I'm really glad you like it :huggle: :heart: (and yes, the characters A/P play here have a very thematically similar relationship/storyline - they get introduced in the 2nd and 3rd movies though, so I'm not sure if you've seen them?) Anyway, basically a pirate captain falls in love with a woman who turns out to be the sea goddess, so it's a doomed/forbidden love and it all falls apart when he feels betrayed and goes a bit... crazy and cuts out his heart, and then is cursed to captain a ghost ship for damned souls for eternity while he turns into more and more of a sea monster.... there's also a locket and a sad/haunting music theme involved XD

POTC is a fun series, I just really love the setting and the music is really epic and catchy as well :D The first movie is my fave because it's such a classic adventure w/ great characters and lines, while the others get progressively darker but have REALLY epic moments and subplots that I love as well!

No I don't think I ever remembered those characters, the ex-love story sounds so tragic Emoji Set: Tears  .. and gruesome lol. It sounds very fitting since Vader completely lost it, and a locket accompanied by sad music, love that really does sound like A/P. 

Thank you for sharing the info :aww:. I can't to see what you'll come up with next. I can't tell if it's your art or just all this AU Anakin and Padme recently but I've been thinking about the couple in all sorts of eras  Sneaky Emote  (because they seem to fit in any era you throw at them) and now I want to draw one of them in particular.

Aww, thank you so much! ^^ And yes, they really do seem to fit into any sort of AU or crossover -  I guess they have a very classic/timeless storyline that covers a lot of themes (which is one of the things I love about them!) :huggle: I can't wait to see what you draw too!
