Parrington Levens once told me that he often loses interest in a MOC when it is about 70% finished.
And I thought I was the only one …
My idea was to create a pirate comic. The wraparound story should take place in a tavern, where Captain Halpin and his crew often meet to drink, laugh, fart, drink more, tell tales and whatever pirates else do in general.
I lost interest, not only in the tavern but in the whole pirate theme. I might change my mind in the future (wouldn’t be the first time), but for now, it’s over.
Nevertheless, a friend of mine forced me to take some pictures before I teared down the tavern. Well, here they are.
To avoid the same problems Hans has had with taking the interior pictures of his Hard Knocks Bar , I built the whole tavern modular.
Ich kann nicht glauben, wie erstaunlich das ist. Jedes einzelne kleine Detail ist in Platz wie ein Meisterwerk entrissen. Wenn es Ihnen etwas ausmachen würde mir sagen, was Foto-Software nutzen Sie bitte? Dies ist eine erstaunliche MOC plane ich auf die Schaffung einer zu. Vielen Dank für die gemeinsame Nutzung einer solchen erstaunlichen MOC. ~ Soap
I can FINALLY see this build! WOOT!!!! Not sure why this one took so much longer to come up for me, but it was well worth the wait! I love Pirates, and yet I rarely build anything in the theme. What is there to build really? A ship...a tavern...a dock? A brothel? Wait, forget I even mentioned that. That one is MINE!!!! LMAO Excellent job man, I really love the ambiance you've created with this scene, and the smoky interior fits perfectly into my vision of a tavern.
Very possibly my favourite MOC I've seen in a few weeks. Details galore, and a flawless production of just the right atmosphere of slight dinginess. The whole presentation of this is almost as spectacular as the build itself. I'm hoping you go back to pirates some day so that I can have the pleasure of seeing more stuff like this. Bookmarked as a favourite.
Too bad you lost interest in the theme. With how stunning this is I'd love to see what you could do with an entire story line! Also, that modular idea was great! Thanks for sharing before the tear down! ~Chris.
Finally I can see the finished tavern.
is really very beautiful and detailed and the game play of light and shadow is beautiful, and, like only you do. For the effect of smoking you should smoke a whole pack of cigarettes. a shot, and snap a photo, a shot, and a picture-taking ... Hahaha ... Very stressful
You're great my friend. congratulations for a job from teacher, to 360 degrees
