Ye Olde Flaggy Sea Bastard & his Flaggin’ Cannon!

in #art10 months ago (edited)


Hi again,

I have just finished a pirate baddie in voxels. I don't have a whole lot to say about it, to be honest!

Baddie #2

Keep in mind, I'm going to try to make a series of these and perhaps a game environment. This is all just for kicks :)

Fun fact

The pixel cannon I made is more of a Revolutionary War cannon. It seems that ship's cannons have two sets of smaller wheels, like the photograph below:

Well, that's about it for now...

Today I hung heavy blankets on my PVC frame to seriously reduce any sound reflections. It's off to a good start!

Thanks all, I’m out...

Might take the doge out to the YAAARRRRRR-d or whatever.


Is this a game?A work of art?

Would like it to be a game, but for now, I am just creating a lot of characters & will plan for that later (if at all).

Thank you for your interest!! :)

Pirate looks good in the his pirate tuxedo... even if he's a flagger!

Heavy blankets are great... one time I didn't have any blankets so I stood 2 sofas on their end and sandwiched the talent in between.. it was an instant sound booth!

Looks awesome and absolutely great!

Arghhhh! No need to fire my flagging cannon here.

Haha... Good thing, I can't afford the tiniest of flags...

Batten down the hatches!

Well hell no, not the guy who thinks thinly veiled post of girls saying Hi! is worthy of being rewarded. We shouldn't be surprised at all that you think this information-less piece of tirade is worth forty five bucks.

It got voted up by the community and he put some work into it. If the community like pretty ladies then that's okay too. Steem needs any content that gets people using it.

Oh, and I don't attack people for their opinions, so don't worry about that. Post what you like.

It got voted up by the community

Translation: It's all good, the community is rigged to work this way regardless of quality or content.

If the community like pretty ladies then that's okay too.

Translation: It's all good the community allows selects accounts to use rigging of bots to rape the rewards pool, if not like we can just let everyone post useless content that will enable them to become a dolphin like @ soldier in less than six months.

Steem needs any content that gets people using it.

Translation: It's okay that the feature/ap doesn't bring any real humans aboard, that idea escaped us a long time ago and as such we've transitioned over to upvote bots being treated the same as human.

Oh, and I don't attack people for their opinions, so don't worry about that. Post what you like.

Translation: I have people that do that for me.

Your universal translator may be faulty and I don't 'have people'.


Your universal translator may be faulty

Yeah mine and a whole lot of other people, even thousands who have left the platform, we are always wrong and you are always right. That's the whole problem with this platform, bots never argue against your point(s). That's why ultimately you and those like you will forever hold this place down from thriving. You guys can literally be a joke, laughable to say the least, you guys are so obvious you should have a saying: Like father like sock.

Strange when my main motivation is to make Steem succeed and I give up rewards to help others, but some people choose what they want to see. They tend to be those who just took and gave nothing back. Still got plankton accounts flagging me after I addressed their bot abuse a year ago. Imagine if nobody had ever taken them on...

I fully admit there are serious issues with retention and I'm looking for ways to fix that because I give a shit.

Cry me a rainbow when people like myself spends countless hours on here engaging and once spent hours on stuff to post while playing by the rules that saw rarely any recognition, response, and slight rewards then sit by and watch as you wave in a group of people who can post a picture with the word HI! and make as much as I did spending hours writing stuff...sometimes ten fold what I'd get. Not even three months later that person is half way to dolphin....yeah you care all right.

ps....before you send you ade boy to get me I haven't posted any articles in weeks, save you some time.

"ade boy"? I sincerely hope that's not me you're referring to like that. I'm well versed with American terminology and that's unacceptable.

What am I looking at another lashing by bots? Pretty soon the nigerian dude will be here.

I'm surprised you didn't spell it with the double "g" like your confederate friend.

One: I know low to spell nigerian, of course it should be capitalized but your friend don't capitalize his name. I don't have any confederate friends that I am aware of, I just un-followed someone a couple months ago for saying Eric Holder needed to be strung up by a rope, only he said it much nastier, I don't even like Eric Holder but that's the kind of behavior I deem unacceptable. Two: I am related to black people, my older sister was married to one before her death, had another child prior to that with another black man who went up for adoption. I often times had her kids for extended periods even before I had my own children. Two of my best friends in life were African American before their deaths. One I wrote about here when I first got here, Three Trees In A Triangle. So please do, once again, excuse yourself.

So you understand that referring to me as someone's "boy" is unacceptable then.

If you thought I meant it in a sexual manner then yes but that wasn't my intent.

Seems like we are starting a war here :D Enjoy your weekend!

I wish I could create games, this could be a fun one :)

Yes indeed! But I think it is a bit complicated and takes a lot of time. Unless it is a small kids game.
