Acheron Zeal by suburbanbeatnik Acheron Zeal by suburbanbeatnik
This is Captain Acheron Zeal, Captain of Her Majesty's ship the 'Circe,' one of the main characters in the swashbuckling pirate fantasy epic "Voyage to Ruin," by :iconcapnflynn:. Here's the synopsis:

Fifty-five years have passed since the disappearance of famous pirate Flynn Freeborn, and the age of piracy and war has become an age of peace. Airships soar the skies, and fellowship and amity flourish between nations. In these days when all wars have been fought, Captain Acheron Zeal of the Royal Navy longs for glory, adventure and promotion; his assignment, to hunt down and destroy a new pirate threat, seems a godsend--but his ocean-going vessel will be hard-pressed to capture his airborne adversary, the captain of the airship Eschaton. His task is further complicated when he meets the proud and beautiful Franceline Drake, who has good reason to despise Captain Zeal; for this enchanting young woman is the very pirate he has sworn to bring to justice.

This book is lots of fun-- it's a real page-turner with lots of action, adventure and romance. Even though I'm personally not that into pirates (or even ships), I thought it a fantastic, engrossing read. You can buy it here: [link]

Re: the drawing, Acheron is a fun guy to draw, since he's so blond and dashing and earnest and Horatio Hornblower-esque. I used Copic pens and markers for this.

The title made me think of the French ship in the movie version of "Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World".

It is very much like that! The creator of Acheron Zeal is a HUGE fan of that movie.

I thought you used watercolor for his jacket because of those highlights. I loved his hair from the thumbnail too. :meow:

You'll be happy to know that :iconcomic-chic: has talked me into drawing an Alan pin-up-- she says it's a sure-fire way to build a fanbase. ;P
