You may remember this fellow from my PTVII small entry. He's still drinking rum.
I'm very sorry for this picture, but it's the best one I could get of the inside of the study. I tried about ten times, and they were all much worse than this. you can get the general idea, though - there's a writing desk for letters back home or ransom notes to be sent to the governer, as well as a perch for the parrot and (maybe you can see it) Brickbeard's goldfish bowl. The current fish is named "Governer XVII". The first sixteen died in creative ways when Brickbeard was angry.
Here's the front porch of the study. the pirates ealized that it was missing something soon after its construction, so they added the additional platform to hold the keg of rum. And, in the window, you get a much better view of Brickbeard's fishbowl.
Brickbeard is the only one doing any work at the moment, as it's his turn at the cannon and lookout spot. Most leaders wouldn't do this sort of menial task, but he knows that it's best to lead by example. And that the other three pirates are no good at it.
This fellow was the scout that the navy first sent out to investigate the outpost. He's now used as target practice for the sharp-shooting pirate.
If the pirates ever cleaned up the beach (not likely) it would look like this. You can see better how the shack is integrated with the eroded rocks, and the bridge from the dock to the porch.
And the above view. I'm very sorry that it appears to overhang the 16x16, but that's all down to the laws of perspective. I couldn't make it fit perfectly from a single viewpoint without tapering it inwards as it got taller, which I can't do. I also just realized that trying to have the camera directly above the shack to reduce overhang there, made the pirate on the dock appear to be leaning outwards. Whoever's editing the photos to put them all together can feel free to crop out any overhang.
And that's it! I'll take comments and criticism, but I'm gonna need to dismantle this in pretty short order because I need the brown for a school project.
