I was inspired by Charles Laughton’s portrayal of Captain William Bligh in Mutiny on the Bounty (1935), also starring Clark Gable. It’s about the political and social divide between the British officers and seamen aboard the HMS Bounty during a voyage to Tahiti. If you haven’t seen this classic black and white film, I insist you do!
While watching the film, I doodled out a few sketchy caricatures and ended up with this rough character sheet. I figured it would be fun to draw the character in a UPA’ish/Flintstones limited animation style. Instead of Bligh, I call this little guy Captain Blargh!
