Added the bandana and eye patch. Still needs a lot of cleaning up and adding the final smaller details like the eye patch strap, teeth, and the swords need to be resolved. Also added some preliminary wood-grain texture to the background.

Still have a long ways to go.
Took a few hours cleaning and reorganizing my workspace just for this little project. Also finally got some speakers hooked up in there so I can listen to some tunes while I work (where I previously just blasted it from the home theater system in the next room). Music to me is like air. I need it with me at all times whenever possible.
"A pirate's life for me!"
I long wondered why there are no cool sculpted pirate-themed coasters around, so I'm making my own. Here's the original sculpt in progress next to the concept sketch. The final piece will be cast in resin.
Kneaded clay, sculpting tools, clamps... what top-secret project am I up to? All I can say is I'm excited about this one. It's a design I really like and the final piece will become a utilitarian item I can use at home on nights I'm feeling particularly piratey. ;)
