My entry is focused on a blunderbuss that’s made a journey across Davy Jones’s Locker. The goal is to tell a story through the varied aspects of the weapons character. I’m in the modelling/blocking out stages and hope to get to painting early next week. I’m a little late to the game on this so there’s a lot to do.
Originally made for a Portuguese nobel, this blunderbuss is now wielded by a pirate captain who decorates it with the finger bones of his fallen victims. With a Portuguese golden Real pounded into the buttstock for luck and the added blessing of some island voodoo veve’s for irresistibility in battle and success in combat painted on the opposite side, he charges into the fray.
