Ahoy! I present to ye my first ever Cubedude. The Cubedude craze has been around for a few years, so the idea is nothing new, but this little project was my first attempt. I decided to build Davy Jones from the Pirates of the Caribbean series, one of my all time favorite movie villians, and try to fit in all of his aquatic details, within the "scale" of the Cubedude. Of course, he's a little rough around the edges, but there's always room for improvment :)
Behold! The legendary pirate cursed by his lover to haunt the seas for eternity! Davy's story is so unique and sad that it almost makes you feel bad for the guy. Then again, he has gone corrupt and killed thousands of sailors, so.........
The captain of the Flying Dutchman is not complete without his barnacle encrusted hat.
Before this build, I studied pictures of Jones and made sure to include all of his prominant features including his claw arm and crab "pegleg." Also, in the original concept art, Davy had a walking stick/ staff, so I made sure to include it in my MOC even though it didn't apear in the movies.
I am most proud of recreating his cephalopod head. I feel this part really makes the Cubedude come alive!
Jones was a lot of fun to make, so you can expect more Cubedudes from me in the future. Also, I have a big project coming soon related to Phantom of the Opera. Until next time, keep a weather eye on the horizon...
"The sea has been kind today, but you may not survive to pass this way again... so says I, Davy Jones"
