pirates of the copyright
when i was in disney i saw these cartoon versions of the pirates of the Caribbean characters but i cant find a name or specific keyword for that style/series. if you google pirates of the Caribbean and comic/cartoon/coloring pages/animated/ you can find a few images. there are action figures etc. but there is no credit given to a designer like there is for lilo and stitch as that style is attributed to chris sanders.
however in goto's class i did discover a european comic called belladone, which looks strikingly similar. disney may have been basing the style on the artist as they planned to do with Atlantis and mike mignola (hellboy) before they just called him up and hired him.
