My first MOC I've been able to post online in almost a year. :D

Here is the full set on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/55680977@N ... 777691425/

Very Nice Napo!!
I think I like all of it ... just enough detail in each area to give them interest, but not too much to keep them from 'blending together' in the scene.

So, how many minfigs have your decals? The dude in the grey, the one with the golden scarab shield (?) and maybe the dude in the red n grey next to him?

Thanks a lot, MC! :D

The swashbuckler is actually a very old HoundKnight decal I posted here early last year or so on a Christopher Columbus minifig. The others are all official Lego torsos, mostly from LotR and PotC. On my Flickr itself I described the characters.

Looks good Napo. I am slightly bothered by the over hanging part on the tower. The physics involved just seem crazy. The detail is great however. The figures aren't bad and even though I'm not a fan of flesh figures, yours look nice.

The photography isn't bad. Lighting and shadows can really be problematic and take away from a build. Don't be discouraged. Practice and luck are what I've been relying on, but I've discovered some new tricks using photoshop that have helped lessen the pain. Here is a link that may be useful to you. My wife and I are looking on a cheaper way to make a light box and I'll have to post any success we have with that.

Ah, I don't have much from the PotC series. They look great just the same.

@MC: I wish I had gotten more PotC sets. They were good, and provided an outlet for pirate parts while classic pirates is in toy purgatory for now. :9

Thanks, QB! The overhanging of the tower was intended to be really cartoony, like the style of, say, the Sly Cooper games, but I do admit it looks odd here. I intend to make a sequel to this MOC that's way more into a cartoony fantasy style, as well as an ultra-realistic version. And I would have used yellow figs, but I wanted to use those torsos and didn't want to replace the hands and wear out the armholes. :9

Thanks for the link! That looks really awesome. I never would have thought of something crazy like the PVC framework and all. Make sure to post any neat lightbox you and your wife come up with!

Sorry I didn't get around to posting anything earlier, but his is great! I really love the rickety tower.
