So I explore some poses that could portray the character's personality.
John "Rusty" Final Pose
Captain Hidalgo "Bolt" Final Pose
"Metal Jaw" Gertie Final Pose
In order to test this poses I created some silhouettes to see if they were working. and I was quite pleased with the outcome, as some of this poses can be concrete in depicting the character's personality.
Finally I was also happy with the pirate feel they also have, so do the speak we have in left to right order, the arrogant Pirate Captain , the bulky yet silly bodyguard and the adventurous and rebellious Hero.
