Patrick O'Brian wishes you... by Steampunk-Girl Patrick O'Brian wishes you... by Steampunk-Girl
... A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!! :dance: :dance:
Damn you x-mas spirit :P
Left to right:
*Preserved Killick ( :heart Killick!!! :heart: the toasted cheese king :) )
*Captain Jagiello ( Only for those who have read Book 7 onwards. Pretty Swedish Husar, good friend of Stephen's, really cheerful and clumsy at sea. I liked to paint his hair and research his uniform, but I think that yellow is too dark for him :P )
*Dr. Stephen Maturin ( Who sings like a constipated frog, but I love him for that :) I had serious problems with his eyes just after scanning, and had to re-do them like 100 times! Grrr! And they're still horrible. The red scarf that's strangling him is from "Desolation Island" I think. And he's being squeezed by Jack's trunk-like arm and bulk, which made him harder to draw :P )
*Cpt. Jack Aubrey ( I think his face is too similar to the "Squeak Squeak HArr hArr" dev., but I made his full dress uniform here, with the Nile medal. He's singing in his"melodious, powerful, bass" ; I so love him :) :heart: I have serious problems with his belly and shoulders)
* 1st Ltn. Tom Pullings ( Firts time I ever draw him, and It's the only I can't find any errors. Maybe his face is too boyish, but anyway. He's being squeezed to death by Jack ^^ )
* 2nd Ltn. (And wannabe poet) William Mowett ( I have to practice Mowett more, because I LOVE HIM!! AAH! Sideburns!!! X3 and it's my first time I draw him :P He's trying to read his poem while Tom is trying to share Jack's "bear hug" with him ^^)
Textures from: [link]
I had problems choosing the bg colour and the textures :P I think I kinda spoiled it. But oh well, Enjoy! And Meryy x-mas! :hug:

Wherever did you research Jagiello's uniform? I am agog. I love the colours!

This is so great. So, so so so so great. Killick in the background is just GOLD GOLD GOLD!!!!!!! Lol, who doesn't like him?) ;) ;)

Aww...Tom looks so cute here! I like it! Good job on that scar too. Stephen's face is hilarious too. And of course, Jack... :love: Jack is wonderful.

Just seeing Killick in the background has made me want Toasted Cheese.
Everything about this is just total epicness; well done indeed!
Lunasariel725 Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2011
Just wanted to say that I love everything about this, especially Killick (toasted cheese ftw!) and Mowett (in all his "OMG U GUIZ POETRY IS SRS BZNZ" glory).

Tis so cute I can't stop giggling! Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
The-Arcadia-Relm Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2011
your Jagiello is almost exactly the same as my Jagiello! i love it when a characters descriptions are so perfect they have a universal look!!!

except, i think you've got a far more appropriate hair colouring, more viking than what i currently have for him. plus i have yet to draw him in uniform! AHHH, so much to do.

Pullings lOoks like he's about to pee himself laughing!!!! I knowmi did this makes me so happy!!!!
JeremyBrettLover27 Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2010  Student Traditional Artist
Sooooooooooooooo CUTE!!!!!!!!!! *dies*
JooRocks Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2010
Killick in the background owns us all! :rofl:

Pullings! :heart:

You know that "Jagiello" is actually a Polish last name? :D And it's originally written "Jagiełło". Poland once had a king whose name was Władysław Jagiełło. He was Lithuanian though (that's where that last name came from), but at that time, Poland had a union with Lithuania, so this is it.
FeatherCollector Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2010
So so so wonderful!!! I don't know if I've commented on this before, but I just finished book 7 and was looking for fanart (you're always a good one for that Miss Steampunk) and lookie what I find!!! Now I know who Jagiello is and I adore him! Even if your interpretation of him is quite different from how I imagined him.

This makes me insanely happy :dance:
KJanuary Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2010
Oh good gracious, this is adorable. And a hilariously modern tribute to O'Brien's characters. Well done!
CaptainAnn Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2010
OMG, I love it. It makes me laugh.

:rofl: Killick...

Your Pullings is very handsome :heart:

I love it, by the way.
Steampunk-Girl Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2009
I had too many people in one picture, I'm sorry :XD:
Bad-Luck-Bree Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
aw...well, he's not an officer anyway...but neither is Stephen, but Stephen is above any naval regulations I guess. I love the musical note differences! Jack's bass and Stephen's abject poverty of vocal talent. XD

Jagiello! Never thought I'd see fanart of him... awesome! I love Killick's expression--he looks really happy. THOSE MUSICAL NOTES ARE TOO DAMN CUTE.

And, for the record, I really like Stephen's eyes in this drawing! His expression is great. Like he's cracking up.
Feantauriel Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2009   Traditional Artist
haha Mowett the poet. You've got to love him!
Stephen's expression wins by far... "what are you doing?" Hehehe and I like his man scarf.
Waily Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2009
Oooh!! :heart::heart::heart: this is so great ^__^
YellowCommodore Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2008
I don't know why, but I am smiling wide over Killick. XD That wonderful man.. Makes everything simple into a large pot of something to fuzz about. ;) I really adore Jagiello here. He is too seldomly drawn, though he deserves it. A man with witty sayings and clumsy doings. :D And a heart-winner.
Stephen always has this great impression at your place. A nice yet mysterious looking. Wonderful man.
And Jack looks so merry :D Even though he should have worries enough. xd Tom is troublesomely cute. And Mowett too. ^_^
Well, what can I say.. I still come back to your fanart often and often. :D Always a great pleasure ^^
Steampunk-Girl Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2008
Glad you like it so much :) Exploring the characters' inner world by their pose and expression has and will ever be my favourite part in the drawing process :D
Gekster Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2008
Haha! Great work on this one (as always) ! Since it's coming to that time of year again, it really fits the occasion. Great expressions, colour and art, and also love the way you've mimicked a manner in which each would be singing. Very amusing, great humour!
Steampunk-Girl Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2008
Glad you like it, I think I should draw another version of this in the near future ^^'
TheMaskedShrike Featured By Owner May 26, 2008
The fact that Aubrey-Maturin fan art exists makes me happy. The fact that they\'re all so happy in this piece makes me even happier. Love it!
FEuJenny Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2008
aaaaww, Tom's adorable here! :love:
Eliza-Aacher Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2008
This is great- it's all so funny!
And you're right, no one does Jagiello... hmmm.
Well, I like this. :)
TheLily-AmongThorns Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2008  Student Artisan Crafter
Ah ah I love that!!!Stephen is sooo cute,don't say like this...I love his pink-irishman-cheeks^__^
And Captain is...always bull-like^___^
Attalus Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2007  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I really like this, particularly Jack. Doesn't look like Russell Crowe, at all, at all.

Killicks line killz me dead! :rofl: you drew aubrey just how i imagined him!
Steampunk-Girl Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2007
Glad our visions of Jack match :) And Killick's quotes are always so lovable ^^
