Hijuyo: Hewwo and welcome to the last installment of “Behind the Scenes of Skullduggery Island: The Phoenix Warbird.” Originally we were going to have a sailing expert – Captain Crawfish – tell us all about the process of designing the famous ship, but as you’ve probably noticed he’s not up for the task.
Cpt Crawfish: Juyo? I’m hearing you, but I can’t see a thing!
Hijuyo: Um, that’s because your eyeballs were eaten.
Cpt Crawfish: Well, this is gonna be the last epic Skullduggery Island informative session – so be nice. Let ME read MY OWN POST for once.
Hijuyo: I did let you read out “Skullduggery in Sketch” for the PHB, you know. You should be glad someone’s here to take over for you in case of emergencies – like being crowded, ripped, and eaten alive.
Cpt Crawfish: EXACTLY! I’M DYING HERE! D: AND YOU’RE NOT GOING TO HELP? =.= This is the best episode! There’s a video and everything! And I’m not able to read it out! AUGH!
With the colors and the scale of the Phoenix Warbird in place, it’s time for a few final tweaks to the design. For that extra “oomph,” the creators give the ship a set of fierce-looking talons.
And it’s done! Starting with one basic idea, the creators sketch out different possibilities, choose a direction, and then refine and improve the design until the final version you see here.
Here’s how it looks next to an actual Poptropican.
Huge, isn’t it?
And here’s a look at the Phoenix Warbird when it takes to the seas.
Pirates of Skullduggery Island, tremble in fear!
Quite a journey from concept to reality, huh? How far we’ve come:
Of course, seeing the Phoenix Warbird in pictures is one thing. Taking the helm of this mighty vessel is quite another.
Have you earned enough doubloons in Skullduggery Island to buy the Phoenix Warbird? If not, what are you waiting for? Play Skullduggery Island now!
Hijuyo: And that’s the end of “Behind the Scenes of Skullduggery Island”!
Cpt Crawfish: ZOMG NO WAI!!11!!1! YOU DIDN’T LET ME POST? WAHHHH… ;(
Hijuyo: OHMAI. Your pegleg was ripped away and your eyesight is already gone! What was I doing wasting my time reading your scripts?
Cpt Crawfish: EXACTLY! You were supposed to help meh!
Hijuyo: No… I should’ve been nomming on you – on the best part – the FILLET!
Cpt Crawfish: o_________0
(And with that, Hijuyo joins in with the others working on getting Captain Crawfish NOMMED!)
Random nommer: Mmm. That was nommilicious.
Random nommer 2: *burps*
Random nommer 3: Ah. A very satisfying meal indeed. Who do we eat next?
Random nommer 4: Well, as I like to say… there are plenty of fish in the sea! Plenty of people who will want to join the PHB, and then we’ll attack! WE’LL EAT THEM ALL!!
(The nommers cheer loudly and everyone looks at YOU.)
