Sebastian Doran by TopHatTurtle Sebastian Doran by TopHatTurtle
So, here we have :iconthe-manga-goddess:'s Half-OC-half-Canon, I suppose (I haven't read the Titus' books so I'm not entirely sure of his ways or appearance in the books) Sebastian Moran.
I have to admit, I adore this guy. I really love how smug and sly TMG has portrayed him in her drawings and her descriptions. He's the perfect partner for Ratigan and I really dig the mix between Ratigans design and Claytons form Tarzan.
I had so much fun drawing him, and damn... if he isn't a blast.

I'm afraid I am turning into a huge fan of this guy :B

He's supposed to, yeah, albeit I'm not the brain behind his design. :) He's a handsome fella indeed.

I know right!
Clayton has an awesome wardrobe and that combined with Ratigans design is a recipe for awesomeness!

He's also supposed to be based on him, it would seem.

Doran looks very dashing and handsome:D Too bad he is the antagonist and a chavunist mind you. Great job! Could you do Senora Malvada? She is another oc villian The-Manga-Goddess created. Check out her sketches of her;)

I might, but in that case I prefer if people send me links for reference.
Mind you, I did this guy because Manga-Goddess had been so sweet and commenting on a lot of my stuff, and I generally just really liked the design, character-wise and visually, for this guy. Malvada, I do not know, so unless I find her REALLY intriguing I might not draw her. But link me back to her, and I'll see. Maybe.

Eeeeeeee! :squee:

Ahem. Sorry. It's just that I have a rather big soft spot for Sebastian Moran ever since reading Kim Newman's Professor Moriarty, and I've been wondering how a mousified (or ratified) version of him would look. Dang, he looks fine. Clearly I need to check this guy out on TMG's page... because clearly I don't have enough on that heap of DA-messages ^^;

Kim Newman, that was his name. I wanted to look up some of his works, but couldn't remember his name, nyaargh.
And of course you don't - none of us does... We can never have enough DA-messages and DA-related jobs to do, mwahaha :evillaugh:

OMG I ABSOLUTELY FREAKING LOVE THIS!!! :heart::heart::heart: You had just made my day. :squee: :boogie:

I believe in the book series, he was only a minor character and Titus didn't give him a full description (at least to my knowledge, it's been awhile since I've read the books :XD:). Also she never gave him the name Sebastian or any other first name, he's just called 'Doran' or 'Captain Doran' - as seen here [link] - which is what I did, but I still love the name. :giggle:

Anyway, besides my random rambling :XD:, I love your style for him and I'm so glad that you love him - I honestly thought he wouldn't get much recognition. I applaud for you :clap: and keep up the good work!

Ah, I see - I do need to pick up those books and get them read, as soon as I can get my hands on them :)

I really had a good time drawing this, and I am going to throw all my love after him because damn, with a design like this he oh so deserves it.
I was wondering - since I really want to know more about him, I wanted to know if you had a list of fanfiction in which he appears. Although I rarely have the time for fanfictiorn, I do want to find time to read about Moran :la:

I'm not sure, there's some people who done Doran - I'm not the first one :XD: - but the only time I've seen him in a fanfiction - besides mine - is :iconnightstorm77:'s. Here's her version of him [link].

Here's a list of the other Dorans
:iconpadriacratigan: - [link]
:iconmakiloomis: - [link]
:iconamberpalette: - [link]
:icontranimation-art: - [link]
and of course mine - [link] :XD:

As far as I know, I'm the only one to write a fanfiction to fully included Doran (I could be wrong but I'm telling as I see it).

You're very much welcome.
I was wondering if you'd written some fanfics involving this guy, because I am so interesting in knowing more about him, as he was a TON of fun to draw, and I am honestly really digging him!

Doran? Well, Manga's version is far from my own version of him. He's sort of what Fidget was minus the comic relief. He's very Cockney, and a bit less elegant than his friend/boss.

It's all right! *pat pat* I do that a lot. As for the question, she's writing a fic with him right now called "Dangerous Liasions." It's pretty dark good so far too.
