The monster looks vet Black-fantasy like and if not for the title, I would think it was hostile.  Nice job with the ship and ocean too :thumbup: .

That looks great SlyOwl, the inside-out tires are really effective, this seems to be a technique that is really taking off! :pir-sweet:

The eyes are so cute, they really make it seem like just a lonely sea monster, rather than a destruction-wrecking berserk!  :pir-grin:

Nice job, really well done. :thumbup:

On the subject of lonely sea monsters:


The Tale of Two Prawns .



Far away in the tropical waters of the Caribbean, two prawns were swimming around in the sea, One called Justin and the other called Christian. The prawns were constantly being harassed and threatened by sharks that inhabited the area.



Finally one day Justin said to Christian, "I'm fed up with being a prawn; I wish I was a shark, and then I wouldn't have any worries about being eaten." A large mysterious cod appeared and said, "Your wish is granted". Lo and behold, Justin turned into a shark. Horrified, Christian immediately swam away, afraid of being eaten by his old mate.



Time passed (as it does) and Justin found life as a shark boring and lonely. All his old mates simply swam away whenever he came close to them. Justin didn't realize that his new menacing appearance was the cause of his sad plight.



While swimming alone one day he saw the mysterious cod again and he thought perhaps the mysterious fish could change him back into a prawn. He approached the cod and begged to be changed back, and, lo and behold, he found himself turned back into a prawn.



With tears of joy in his tiny little eyes Justin swam back to his friends and bought them all a cocktail. Looking around the gathering at the reef he realized he couldn't see his old pal. "Where's Christian?" he asked. "He's at home, still distraught that his best friend changed sides to the enemy & became a shark", came the reply.



Eager to put things right again and end the mutual pain and torture, he set off to Christian's abode. As he opened the coral gate, memories came flooding back. He banged on the door and shouted, "It's me, Justin, your old friend, come out and see me again." Christian replied, "No way man, you'll eat me. You're now a shark, the enemy, and I'll not be tricked into being your dinner." Justin cried back "No, I'm not. That was the old me. I've changed.".........



"I've found Cod. I'm a Prawn again, Christian".

Um, this is awesome! :pir-sweet:  :thumbup:

I love how the monster looks sad. His eyes are made of gold though, so he should look on the bright side. And those goofy Pirates shouldn't make their mast out of barrels and parrots if they don't want it to snap so easily... :pir-sceptic:

I thought those were bubbles from him splashing into the water, or just there to show the movement of the water as he swims away. Though I could be wrong. Take a whiff and find out! :tongue:

Well, it actually started off as a fully blown evil sea monster epic designed to show off the hull technique, but then when I was experimenting with the eyes, I rediscovered the crown+tyre technique that I was going to use in my steampunk impulse MOCs but never got round to, and when I held these over the neck, the inside of the tyre looked like a smile, so I took it from there :pir-wink:

Who says they're Pirates? I deliberately said sailors and missed out any firearms to compensate for this :pir-wink:

Yes, I developed this from "Look! Bubbles!" on the Brother's Brick when they blogged my Pirate vs Islander. Sounded like farting to me, so I just stuck it in :pir-laugh:

Wow, this is a really brilliant MOC! Why does no one like the monster? I think it looks quite cute! Just a bit too big to take it home with you.  :wink:
