Here's my small entry: Now updated with new improvements.

:jollyroger:A Pirate's Death :jollyroger:

It's not spectacular, but I figured I'd make a quick entry just for the fun of it. :pir-classic:

=============================================================

When a pirate was captured, he or she would often be executed.

One photographer managed to get in to the event and snap a few shots of the execution... :jollyroger:

And for those that wanted a black-and-white picture: :pir-laugh:

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions!

Nice and simple. :jollyroger: The blood looks great.

Possible Improvements:

Change the skeleton head/white hands to a regular pirate head/scared head/bloody head

Flip the front of the vignette to the other side (of the base) and put tiles on it.

Simple but brutal... nice.

Possible Improvements

--> Put 1 or more black birds on top (raven, crows).

Also, maybe take out the soldiers gun. i think it might lead to confusion about how they are executed. (at least it did for me) Great job BTW!

My opinion:

And another very good MOC from Erdbeereis1, who really has proven himself to be a fantastic brickbuilder!

Possible improvements:

1) IMHO, for being one of YOUR MOCs, it lacks some details, like: a musket instead of a pistol, a feather for the tricorne hat, adding a rat, you should have decided between a dying (bleeding) pirate or a long dead (skeleton) pirate...

2) As suggested by Captain Kirk, I really would add some black birds to the picture if you have them.

3) A photographer managed to take a shot? Then it would be in black and white, no :pir_laugh2: ? And why not adding one, even when it's a bit out of place in that period of time.

Thanks Zorro and everyone else!

1) At the moment I don't actually have any plumes or rats, but I'll have the plumes when I get some more new pirate sets and the rat in the castle advent calendar. I may change the pistol though...

2) Do any non-brick built black birds exist? I may have a go at building one.

3) That I can do. I had to come up with some kind of story. :pir-tongue:

======================================================

Thanks again everyone, your comments are much appreciated, and I'll try to improve some things and update the pictures.

Opinion

I think this is a great entry Erdbeeseis1. I like how you made the pirate hanging from the rope, being lynched by the Imperial Guard. The little things you added in your MOC, like the plants are very nice. I also like how you made the base of your MOC a tan color to give a beach effect. The blood you have goes good with your MOC well.

Possible Improvements

1) You could have a crab or a snake crawling under the pirate.

2) If the execution of the pirate is happening when the photographer took the picture, why does the pirate have skeleton arms and head? I would change the head to a screaming expression and change the hands back to yellow.

3) You could add a bat somewhere in your MOC.

4) I agree with zorro3999, the photos should be in black and white.

Overall- I really like your idea of executing a pirate. I can see you have included the new Imperial Guard. There are some little things I would fix to make your MOC look even better. I wish you the best of luck!

LegoKing, thanks for your comments!

I don't think I'll add a bat because tha doesn't seem to me like something that would be on a beach. However I did add a crab and a crow type bird.

I also don't think it would be wise for all of the pictures to be black-and-white, but I will have one.

I've made a few improvements and once I edit the pictures and upload them, I'll post them here.

Thanks again everyone!
