Here's one of my summer projects. It's YS Masterpieces version of Ahab from the book "Moby Dick".
Will a mast help frame this figure? I originally had a pencil which looked a little skinny to be a mast, then I dug around and found this brass tubing which, has some girth to it and makes it look more convincing.
Whats neat about adding a mast is the things you can add to it. For one, the Spanish ounce (worth $16 US I believe) nailed to it. This was the prize for the first mariner to spot Moby Dick. I also thought of small carvings mariner may have done during some down time on deck.
How about the staggered barrels? Is there too much verticality going on here?
I don't like the hat, so thats being replaced.
I'm open to any suggestions as I'm anxious to get started on this project.
Thanks for following.
