The Apathy Pit


Harmaisis And The Virtuous Ones (Moc's)

Posted by The Present Automaton , May 17 2012 · 177 views

Six years. My word, it's been six years since the last time I MOC'd. I used to do it quite a lot, but then realised just how bad most of the stuff I was doing was and realised I preferred my sets in pristine condition as opposed to a jumbled mess. So I stopped. Until now!

I suppose this stuff would be better off in the BBC forum, but honestly, I'm fairly intimidated by the far more talented creations, so I'm happy to keep this one here and out of the way. So without further ado, I present to you:

Harmaisis, the leader of the Virtuous Ones! (Click the picture for the gallery, when it becomes public)

Full body shot
Action shot
Pose (This one was an accident after he'd fallen over, but the pose he'd fallen in was too brilliant to pass up)
Harmaisis and three assorted Virtuous Ones (Note, I went for the Toa Inika build purely for simplicity. These three exist to compliment Harmaisis)

The Virtuous Ones are a cult-like group of assorted Glatorian and Agori who see the automatons who left the Matoran Universe to join them as inferior mockeries of life, and that those who associate with them are impure. The organisation was created by Harmaisis who led them into the farthest reaches of Spherus Magna, to escape this insult. Or so was believed, until a group of adventurers led by Toa Bomonga discovered them only a few days march from Atero Nui...


I Cannot Bite The Day To The Core

*Slams head on keyboard* English Literature exam done and...I'm actually...optimistic about it. I really don't know if I should be, given nobody else I saw was happy about it. Thing is, I open the exam paper and practically pounded my fist in the air when I read the question was about how Edward Thomas (The poet we were looking at) portrayed strong emotions through imagery and whatnot. And that's like the perfect question for him, given the fact that he was completely depressed for the most of his life, which bled into his writing. (What I find a little disconcerting is that a lot of his reasons for his depression actually reminded me of myself quite a few times. Maybe that's why I liked him so much).

The Frankenstein essay was alright. I probably could have done with a few more quotes, but most of them had escaped my memory, except a few very useful ones. The question was on whether any characters deserved to suffer, and I think I spent too long discussing Victor's suffering. And I quite obviously shoehorned in the context, outside source and structure features in the most unsubtle way possible.

So, all in all, the exam went well, but I'm starting to wonder if it went a little too well.

I'm watching the English trailer for Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, and I can't help my suppressed fanboy instincts of getting really darn hyped. It just looks so good. But the problem is, despite buying it roughly when it came out, I still haven't finished Birth By Sleep. I've finished Terra's campaign, and I'm about halfway through Ventus', but I just can't find the motivation to keep going. Although, now that I'm practically drooling over Dream Drop Distance, that might be motivation enough...

Ooh, finished the first part of Solatorobo: Red the Hunter, which is both amazing and slightly depressing. It's nice for me to have found a game I truly am enamoured with and want to play, instead of one that feels more like a chore to plough through. I can imagine it'll be sad when I finish it, but then the hunt for more stuff to play goes on. I think I'll finish BBS, then Okamiden, then get Kid Icarus, hopefully before Dream Drop Distance comes out.

Oh, and if Frollo is a boss battle, he has fire based powers. Calling it now.


The Impossible Is No Limit

I seem to have a way to exceed expectations. After all, would you think it possible to run into an automatic door? Because I sure did. In front of a crowd of people. They all turned to stare. I then did the most beta male thing ever and just turned to my friend and said "Watch out, there's a door there," before continuing on my quest. That takes a lot of skill... ._.

So, first exam of the four today, and my wrist has already been decimated. My thumb was throbbing after three solid essays and my mind was rather numb. It went better than expected, though I think I wrote one essay completely wrong. The other two I'm hopeful I did quite well on. Ah, well.

So, I was just doing some thinking, and I thought of how sorry I felt for the people of the "Describe the sig" thread, given I haven't changed my banner for months now. Surely they must be getting bored, I pondered. And I can't bother Shattered Mask Productions for yet another advertisement. So, I wondered, why don't I just try making my own banners?

I remember now.

After a little while yelling at GIMP because the bugger wouldn't do what I wanted it to, when I wanted it, I finally churned this out.

I don't like it.
