Character Designs

Here we have Walker. He is supposed to do all of the menial jobs around the ship, but he thinks he is far too much of a snob to do them. I based Walker's designs off of bird like flamingos as I think they look quite arrogant. You can see how his nose is quite beak like. I made his outfit look more regal than the other pirates (take note of his ascot), he thinks he is better dressed than the other pirates.
This is Patches. He is a plucky young fellow who absolutely adores the Captain. He is the first mate on the ship and really does everything. I wanted him to be a little fellow so the Captain can beat him up easily. He naturally has an eye patch (hence his name), but i also made him wear much plainer clothes than the Captain as he is the first mate.

This is Captain Breadbeard. He is very brash and load (think of a combination between Brian Blessed and Rip Torn). He is obsessed with getting his golden treasure. I gave him a beard to pay homage to Brian Blessed. I wanted to keep his colours mainly blue to signify the sea.
Here is a little design for the pirates' ship. As you can see, they are attached to shopping trolleys. The ship is not very large,, as it has to fit inside a super market.
Here are two of my supporting characters. the first is a little old lady who the pirates shoot at with their cannon. The other is a security guard, i wanted him to look middle aged and fat. I'm not entirely happy with the old lady so i will probably have to redesign the characters.
Hello again. Here are my early concept designs for the film. This shows the main characters as well as some supporting characters. I also threw in a concept for the ship. It's early days so there might be some tweaking involved.
