Happy birthday to my friend, linh-sama! I wanted to try an Okami-inspired watercolor rendition of Ryuko and Mako. I chose the worst paper to work on though. Whenever I laid down any color, it would just sit ON TOP of the paper in a water bubble READY TO BURST AT ANY PROVOCATION so I had to wait at least ten minutes for each layer to dry. It turned out okay in the end though! I killed time in between watching House of Cards. 8D
Fact: If there were a button I could press to make Sir Patrick Stewart a regular fake news correspondent I would never stop pressing it
That awkward moment when Catwoman seductively purrs “I’ve been a bad kitty….” and you get a little rise out of the bat-pole from it…. Then you realize that the same actress did the voice for both of these characters.
Jack was employed into service for the East India Trading Company and was given command of the Wicked Wench. However, after he set free a cargo of slaves, his employer, Cutler Beckett, had Jack branded as a pirate and the Wench set aflame and sunk. After failing to rescue the Wench, Sparrow struck a bargain with the ghostly captain of the Flying Dutchman, Davy Jones, to resurrect his beloved vessel. Jones returned the ship to Jack in near perfect condition except for the permanently charred hull. This prompted Jack to rename her the Black Pearl.
Jack Sparrow just got way cooler.
Yo, this is why Norrington said he’s the “worst pirate I’ve ever heard of,” and then Jack followed it up with, “But you have heard of me.”
Because Jack was branded a Pirate because he freed people rather than stealing anything. So Norrington, with his sense of duty, knows that Jack has been branded a criminal for actively not being a terrible human being. Norrington is torn between his duty as a naval officer and knowing that Jack is right.
He freed exactly 100 people, that’s why his debt to Jones was 100 souls. Davy has a sick sense of irony after all. Jack freed 100 souls and as a consequence his ship got sunk. Now his ship has been raised and as a consequence, he has to enslave 100 souls. This explains his reluctance to actually pay back the debt.
Crap, the latter portion of this franchise was a lot smarter than I thought it was…
There’s so much people don’t get about this franchise, the story is really more complex than just “funny drunken pirate meets hottie lady and hottie man with occasional visits from squid man”.
Accidentally stayed up late finishing this after work, haha.
Sonic Characters - Did You Know Voice Acting?
Did you know about the voice actors of your favorite Sonic the Hedgehog characters? Jaleel White was in fact NOT the first actor to portray the Blue Blur…but voiced him for quite a while, indeed! Tails has gone through at least 6 different child actors, but the whole cast of video game icons has changed at least 3 times over the course of the games in the last decade! Learn about the history of the voices behind Sonic and his friends!
