[MOC] Mutiny of the Map

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

I'd just to like share my first Pirates MOC - "Mutiny of the Map".  This was inspired by Nivremis' MOC of the island shown on a Lego pirates treasure map.  That made me think about other possible scenarios around the treasure map... and this is what I came up with.  A reason for mutiny!

Thanks for looking.

I like it!  You did a great job on the jungle branches, and on the waves, which are extremely difficult to do well in Lego- I can count on one hand how many times I've seen it done in a way that didn't look weird (and none of those attempts were by me).  The stream from the jungle is a nice touch, and the rocks under the jungle also look terrific.  The vines on the large tree are a very good detail as well.

The two different sand colors to mark dry and wet is cool, and I assume the holes are incorrect digging spots?  That, or these pirates are tide pooling :-D

Thanks very much!  Yes, the holes were incorrect digging spots.  No doubt the next captain will have better map reading skills....  ;-)
