Once on the one island in the Caribbean See I have found a dead men that was bury in the sands.
  He died many years ago, when this island was used how headquarters by pirates!
  Pirates! How they was cruel! They force this man to die by starvation and shortage of the water!
  Many days he lied in the sands! No move! No rest!
  I seem this picture with horror…
  I wish not it even for enemy…

The little idol near the thee is ancient relic of the wild tribe, that once live there. I don`t tell it before, sorry.

My opinion:
Nice, but the concept has been done before. You finished it nicely and it follows the rules.

Possible improvements:
1) The helmet doesn't really belong to the age of pirates. Don't you have a Spanish conquistador helmet? Or just another bandana, even bald might be better...

2) Give the pirate a sword of something, so he looks more like an actual pirate.

3) The SNOT aspect is well done, but maybe you could add some light blue bricks next to the coastline (to represent it).

Non-brick related advise:
1) A story is always nice.

Nice work on your entry Vadim!
I really like the foliage and SNOT water always gets a  :thumbup:  from me.

A few things you could improve are:

1) That knights helmet really doesn't match the Pirate theme very well. Like Zorro said, making it a bandana or conquistador helmet would be much better.

2) Interspersing some white or light blue plates with the regular blue would give a nice effect of waves lapping against the shore.

3) The pirate's head looks a bit too friendly for a nasty pirate. I would make it something more evil looking.

4) If you add a bit of a storyline to your entry, it would make it much more interesting.


I like your entry very much and hope you do well in the contest!

Opinion
I guess the pirate has buried an Imperial Armada officer? I like how you made you water and sand. I see you have made the beach a stud higher than the water, very good. I like how you put the snake next to the buried officer, nice touch. The officer’s face fits the MOC perfectly, screaming and being afraid. The tree very well made with limps dropping down. I can see you have put the treasure from Indiana Jones into your MOC, nice use of pieces.

Possible Improvements

1) Tiling the sand would look much nicer.

2) Put some sand around the head to make it look like it is buried even better.

3) Have the pirate carrying a sword or gun.

4) Add some blood into your MOC. Maybe you could have the snake biting the buried guard and put some blood next to his head. Just a thought you would like to know that.

5) Put a rainbow parrot sitting on top of the palm tree to add some color.

Non-Brick Related

1) You could have a name for your MOC, instead of saying, "image of the piracy cruel."

2) Put a story or have a plot about your MOC.

3) Your pictures can only be a max of 640x480.

Overall- I can see you have put some time and effort into creating your MOC. It has come out well, but there are some minor improvements you can fix to make your MOC look even better. I wish you the best of luck!

The maximum size is 800x600 Da rules
Please everyone, if you still haven't, read the rules before making such statements: you could make the contestor spend time on something useless that only makes his pictures of a lesser quality...

Sorry for the tone, but it is clearly stated into the rules.

Good job nice smooth water

What could be improved:

1. The buried pirate could have a shako on or a other pirate hat on instead of a castle helmet.

2. Ad a weapon for the pirate.

3. Put some sand by the soldier.

4. Give the pirate a more crueler face.

5. Make the pirate holding the idol, its too big to miss! :pir-grin:

Non brick advise

1. Ad a story, it will get more attention.
