Kraken Blog – Getting Ship Shape

Still have to upload the rest of the pics again, but an hour got me further along.  The arms at the stern of the ship will be a challenge when I add detail to them since they are a bit “woggy” though I think that can be rectified.  Sometimes you seem to make great progress in an hour, other times it seems you’ve done so little.  Either way it feels good to get completely away from computers and everything else and focus on something that is so immediate.  Anyone who plays piano feels the difference if they’ve been on a digital piano then feels the direct response playing a piano with a well regulated action.  More pics can be seen at
