Looks great, was thinking about re-creating one of the pirates from the original movie myself and after seeing this, it looks like a lot of fun so I think I'll have to set that as my next project.
Also, somehow, I think I recall seeing that your working in San Diego now as a cg artist. Congrads! I remember seeing your reel on CG talk a while back, very cool.
Well, can't wait to see more.
