"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.

Being a pirate is alright with me
Do what you want 'cause a pirate is free
You are a pirate!
I have to look at the head for a while to see it right. X) Other than that, cool!
I love how you turned laval's head facing up to make the beard! and there is just so much detail to compliment about this that I don't have time for it!

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.
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.
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"
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 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)
