All pirate ships need a insignia and I love octopuses. So I chose that as his theme/insignia.
This is the one I found that I liked. I made myself a template so that it would be the same on both sides.
So this is how I got it on. I just taped it on and traced it. I know cheap but I wanted to go fast.
All traced out and ready for paint.
Yes that's a real beard. I think besides the decorative piece on the top of his boat this was the next time consuming but worth it.
I absolutely love how this looks and turned out. That's all I have to say about this.
