Jolly Roger Coaster Work in Progress: Part 2

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.

Jolly Roger Coaster Work in Progress

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!"

Drink Up Me Hearties!

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.

Keep a Weather Eye on the Horizon

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. ;)

Stay tuned!
