About this creation
Hi!

MA 2014

My good friend Graham Gidman alerted me that the deadline was tonight; without that warning I would not have been able to enter this!

So I panicked and rushed for most of this creation; that's why the textures are messy and the whole build not refined :P

Massively inspired by Gilbert Despathens! I was going to use some of his wall decor techniques but decided not to due to space on the walls. The floor design was one I first saw him use.

So, pirates are usually at sea. But this captain is exceptionally rich and bought a nice house! He came home to it after a successful mission. This is my first time really building an interior, and considering that, I think it's ALL RIGHT. Even with my sudden time constraints, I managed to put some detail into it.













Yeah. Not good wall texture.





A wall built in roughly 5 minutes. I would have spent more time (in other words, till midnight) on it but my family has something going on so I had to really finish quickly :P



Three different kinds of flooring!



Overview. I made this thinking the deadline was monday and thinking that this would be the build where I broke three. But I rushed it. Still. Just. One. Four.

Very cool creation Alex, this is by far one of the best you've made in my opinion. Want a little advise, don't listen to the judges... I think that their way too harsh and that they are not seeing what it is for what it is. Also I forgot to mention that you should post that creation that we made here because I think that it would be a great creation to add to your Lord of the rings collection, and also I think that it would look really sharp with your creations, and not to mention that this is totally fresh/original, I did some researching and didn't find anything similar to what we made. I don't have much left to say, the last thing I can think of is "nice checkered floor" but I think that I have already told you that, hope to see more from you soon :D

Nice! There are indeed a lot of Gilbert ideas here, but you added plenty of your own too. And it looks great for such a rushed build!

Great job! The walls looks quite good. It's funny, I was going to use the same diagonal floor technique in a MOCAthalon build, too!

I at least like the walls! This looks great! It does not look very piratey but it looks great nevertheless! P.S. Nice floor!

Quoting Justin Knelsen If it were a knights home, it would be around a four pointer. The interior just doesn't seem much like a pirates haven. Score: 3
Yeah, I totally get that. Cheers man!

Quoting Topher Adams Looks nice. The wall, as you said, didn't turn out so well but the rest of the MOC looks great. The floor certainly turned out well. Little better lighting could be used. Despite the time constraints I'd say you did rather well as usual.
Yes, very true. Thank you Topher!

Quoting Professor B. Floor is excellent. I particularly like the walls. @Gilbert Despathens: Master Despathens, you're becoming quite a popular builder. Everyone wants to build your tavern! ;P
Thanks Professor! Yeah, I hope this building helps get Gilbert's name out there . . .

Quoting Gilbert Despathens Cool room. You could (should) keep it together now that the challenge is over and finish it - I kind of want to see what it would have looked like without the time constraint, especially because this is your first interior. Maybe Halhi's not the only one I should be watching out for.
I probably will keep it up and refine it now that you say so. I'd also like to see it better :P Thanks Gilbert!
