The entertaining piratical musician was built by Sweetsha. The dreads look appropriately unwashed, and I like how well the essence of the character is conveyed in a relatively simple build.
Sweetsha is apparently engaging in a seed-part contest, with the brown claw piece as the mystery part. His floating windmill island is also worth highlighting. The clouds as structural elements to stabilize the base and hold the flying machine aloft are a nice touch, and the round Hobbt-door is too cute. Be sure to check out his flickr-stream for more cool models utilizing the brown claw.
From wikipedia: A common misconception is that those who have dreadlocks do not wash their hair, but this is usually not the case.
Mad Czech: Haha, I just knew someone was going to call me out on that. I know that a lot of people with dreads wash their hair, but this guy is a piratey rocker, and I’m guessing personal hygiene isn’t high on his list.
^Plus his hair is plastic…so it doesn’t need washed very much. A soft brush and a can of compressed air will do the trick nicely. ;)
The floating rock scene looks great… I just can’t help but thinking it would look better /without/ the seed part though… Nevertheless, very well done!
