Following my relatively return to DeviantART, I was uploading only franchised works because I found that I could easily suibmit them to relevant groups maintained by fans of the given series or property. Due to the overwhelmingly positive reception of my recent "unlicesed" uploads however, I have elected to continue uploading creations in the general genres of Pirates, Castle, and the other mostly historical themes by which I build.
This was my (I think prize-winning?) entry to the Eurobricks.com Pirate LEGO forum's Captain's Cabin Contest (the smaller, one time CCC) in 2008. Here's the credit blurb:
Bureau & chair inspired by Michael Jasper
Windows inspired by Nathan Wells
Lantern inspired by Mike Crowley
And a note of retrospective: I was very happy at the time to own a few basic bricks in the rarer sand green color, enough to finish the wall above and around the map, but now I regret that it doesn't fit well with the other wall; I should have had it dark gray all around.
