Pirate Character Influence

Not only do I have my pensioner in my story, I have the younger past of him which on the ship battling an evil pirate needs to look the part if I am going to go with the idea that he has his own ship which the evil pirate has invited himself onto. I found some great reference of young pirates, even Peter Pan is a good reference with his action gestures which are like pirates.
I also used this research to look at what my evil pirate could look like and so far I like the idea of a contrast between him and my main character. Yes one is a child, the other isn't but taking the Monkey Island series for example, the evil pirate LeChuck is bulky and has dark hair while Guybrush Threepwood is lanky and blonde.
