Captain Redbeard Blindeye by Sparkytron Captain Redbeard Blindeye by Sparkytron

"Once upon a time, a young captain set out to find the treasure of the ancient masks. 7 weeks after his journey begun, he was betrayed. But alas, he fought well and hard, and he emerged victorious. At a price, he lost both of his eyes and his right leg. In the moment of madness he cannibalised the corpse of his first mate, and set out to sail the seas. Being blind as he was, though, he was sailing in circles. That, my friends, is the story of Captain Redbeard Blindeye."

After two years it is finally finished.

If you want to read a 1450 words long journal about the thoughts and reason it took me two years to complete this MOC check the journal here sparkytron.deviantart.com/jour…

I really like the use of that Chi Laval head.. I'll never be able to look at it the same way again.. you know, without seeing that nose :p
And I really like what you've done with the hat and the buttons on the torso, and.. well..  all of it! :iconiloveitplz:
This is one cool Captain.

Congrats on finally getting this done. I remember seeing the WIPs of it on flickr. I really like how he came out with the sales and all. When I got my Construct-A-Zurg Capes and the sails I got for Remaku I tried working something like this out for Matteo. I never really got it to work but you pulled it off brilliantly Dylan. :clap: I've still got one of the large black sails and 6 capes left. Now if I try a cloak thing I'll have to credit you, which is totally cool.

I'm actually a little bummed to hear that he's completely blind and is sailing around in circles. :( Poor guy. For a MOC so epic he has a sad existence. Again though, wonderful job with this MOC man. :thumbsup::D

He is only blind because I couldn't give him a pair of eyes xD (also I didn't make the story up, Cezium did :))

Yeah it probably would be kinda hard to wrap some eyes around that. Even if you used rubber bands or what ever else. I'm doing something sorta similar to that right now though. Yarrrr a MOC of me own is goin' ter have an eye patch. Ah, the Noble Pirate

Yeah I kinda get that vibe to. Thanks Dylan. That means a lot to me. I wished you commented on my MOCs more. Your insight would be most helpful. :D

But yeah I can't wait to see it either. Picture the Kanohi Olmak with a gladiator plume and an eye patch and that's what I've got so far. :D

I.. I know that I should comment on stuff more >_>
It is most of the times too hard for me to express my opinion because I have to translate everything. And most of the times I just go with the simpler version and say stuff like. "I like X, but not Y so much"

Really? Well I gotta say your English is better than you give credit for because I've never noticed it was an issue. I know you're Belgian, and that English is a common language in that part of europe but not the first language. I've always thought your English was good enough that it was never an issue. And as a native speaker of it I can tell you its a bitch of a language to grapple, even native speakers don't have it mastered, so don't worry about that part, you're doing great as far as I'm concerned.

But if it is an extra effort for you I understand. I just really respect you as a MOCer cause you're really good, but not arrogant like some of the other MOCers from Flickr. So when you comment and say "I like X but not Y" that really carries some meaning for me.

It is not common at all. Only Great Britain speaks English. Belgium is a country that speak Dutch, French and German (yes all three). And our border countries are The Netherlands, France and Germany where they speak Dutch, French and German respectively. The fact that Great Britain doesn't side to the land and doesn't use the Euro don't really help imo.

It takes much effort for me. I find it difficult to express my feelings about a MOC because I don't know the fancy words I should be using to describe it as I could in dutch. And just looking up the translation doesn't really work because I don't quite know how to use it in a proper sentence. 

(this bit of text also took me 10min to reply for that exact same reason)
