  1. While I'm sad to be seeing BZPower losing long-time members and all, I do appreciate that you're not just up and leaving without resolving all your loose ends. It might be a small thing to say, but HF RPG was my first RPG and it's been a really, really good foray into the games, and I've met good friends there and I suppose it means a lot to not get a sudden, slapped-on end to it. So thank you.

     

    I might not fully understand your reason for leaving, but I do hope that you have a great time with whatever it is you're doing outside BZPower. Maybe, when you do leave, we can get SPIRIT to sing another Adele song on your departure.

  2. Sweet! I've got a couple stories I haven't posted here yet. Might enter another, newer thing if I get the time. Oh, and if somehow I do win and it turns out it's too expensive, I have no qualms in foregoing a physical gift. However, I must ask that in return I receive a terrible MSPaint drawing of a Malum.

     

    Edit: Here it is, a comedy called Strakk's Best Friend.

     

    This is an old one but I haven't posted it to BZP before so it should still count. If I get something better done by then, I'll submit that too, but if that doesn't pan out then I've got this. Not sure if I have to give a reason for this being an example of wasted potential, but my reason is basically that Bara Magna was a good time and should have gotten more story material.


  3.  

    Hey, just noticed this is a thing I could enter. For some reason I thought this was a Ninjago contest or something, and I'm way behind on my Ninjago. But I digress.

     

    So, it says don't enter if it's expensive to ship to wherever we are. Is Australia too far off? Oh, and if it is, can we still enter for funsies? I might slap something together for the fun of it and, I don't know, request a crudely drawn image of the set of my choosing if I were to place in the competition.

    I will only vote for it if it includes Malum's luscious eyebrows.

     

     

    Bara Magna is one of my favourite examples of wasted potential so it might

     

    I plan on doing a short story, actually, possibly on Hero Factory. So maybe not.

     

    EDIT: Oh and because I forgot to mention: I'm also perfectly fine with not being able to enter. Odds are I'll be too busy to do anything anyway. Also, Australia's expensive to ship to and from. It's awful.

  5. I have a lot of interests but some good starting points are:

    - Bionicle: Favourite wave is Bara Magna, favourite character is Malum. I have some OCs, but pretty much all of them would not be on BZPower. I need to put more work up. Anyway Malum things would hit close to my heart.

     

    - Hero Factory: I do the HF RPG, and I have... Five? Five. Five characters there so far. Three even have picture representation! I love stuff of my OCs, and if that's what you're gunning for, HF RPG would be the best bet.

     

    - Transformers: Why did Transformers Animated only get three seasons :c :c :c

     

    - Horror: I love it, it's my favourite genre. I love both good and bad horror.

     

    - Writing: I do really like to write. I will be either writing or drawing for my Secret Santa-ee.

     

    - Drawing: As above, love to draw, will either be doing this or writing for mine.

     

    Currently, I am most present in the HF RPG. I want to get back into drawing and writing and posting the products of those two things, but I am very lazy and nitpicky about my work. Mostly lazy. I used to be pretty present in the S&T since I love science and have a very good memory for the storyline, so I could jump in with science facts and Bionicle trivia, but I haven't looked there in ages. Another thing I need to do more of.


  6. That bonus drawing is incredible, I love it! Toa Zippy has better reflexes than Real Zippy could ever dream of ;a;

     

    And the updated one works really well too! This is really starting to remind me of that spooky house attraction that takes photos of people walking through the place and getting spooked. Which is perfect, really.

     

    Now for Zahaki. That guy is an enigma. He appears and fades like mist. He may actually be mist, we just don't know.

  7. I love it, it's beautiful. :'u But now the raised leg makes it look like Zippy's about to deliver a side-kick to Itaki the Startler. Which may be why Itaki is crouched- ready for incoming attacks. It already tells a story. It's incredible.

     

    All these really good perfect drawings and there's my MSPaint-looking abomination on the end there. If it's all right, Akaku, I'll hit you up for the .psd once I emerge victorious in my War on Art Programs, and then I'll fix it up. It'll still be the same pose and junk, just... smaller lines and cleaned up a lot. Maybe some extra details. Details are another thing I'm not good at.

     

    And I'll even add my name because apparently I forgot to do that. Until then I'm the MASKED STRANGER

  8. I think I kind of know what the issue was. My art program was doing this weird thing where if I tried to draw a line it would, instead of just having a curved line, Etch-A-Sketch it with a really jagged line. I have an inkling of how to resolve it, but for now I'll leave it as is. Thank you, though! :D

     

    I'll send the PSD along when I'm on a device that can transfer the file. c:

  9. I'll get started on that ASAP. Issue is, my drawing tablet does not agree with my computer at the moment, so my drawing is limited to paper and MSPaint. I'll figure it out.

    EDIT: I got my tablet to arguably work on my laptop (it looks like I'm drawing on an Etch-a-Sketch) so I am reserving #1 because THAT'S WHAT I AM

    EDIT #2: An attempt was made

     

    (I have the photoshop file too, can send that along if needed)

     

    You may notice that digital art is not my strong suite. I might have to redo it- the lines are pretty zig-zaggy. Also the thick lines I originally chose look a little weird. Digital art is HARD

     

    I couldn't decide between 'horrified' and 'disgusted' and instead went with both.

  10. FUSE ALL TITLES INTO THE ACRONYM BEHEMOTH

     

    "The Sky Burned A Brilliant Shade Of Red And From The Earth's Core Came Twisted Abominations The Likes Of Which The World Had Never Seen, Twisted And Corrupt To Their Very Cores, Causing A Peculiar Itch To The Backs Of My Eyes As I Looked Upon Them. One Saw Me It Seemed, As It Raised A Clawed, Plated Finger And Traced Shapes In The Air. I Screamed As A Terrible Bionicle Comic Etched Itself Into My Eyelids, But Then I Had The Strangest Urge To Laugh. And So I Did, For The Rest Of My Days."

  11. If we enter enough Lovecraftian monstrosity names, we'll have an incredibly good chance of Akaku selecting one out of his proverbial hat.

     

    "And lo, I gazed into the beast's shimmering eyes, orbs of cursed blackness that caught the flame from my torch's glow the way slick algae caught the last beams of sunlight from a deserted rockpool upon the coast, and there did I only see terrible Bionicle comics. They plague me still."

  12. You are only encouraging me to make even longer ones. >:y

     

    "In The Dark Of Night I Lie Awake And Hear Rats Scratching Inside The Walls, When I Had The Nerve To Finally Investigate I Found Nought But Terrible Bionicle Comics Scritched By The Claws Of Hundreds Of Vermin. I Have Been Too Afraid To Take Action And So I Lie Here Weary And In Dreary Acceptance As The Rodents Scratch More Monstrosities By The Hour"

  13. You know, this is quite logical fear-wise. Like, more than half of my time is spent on the computer or using my sight.

     

    And you led me onto this train of thought: If I was forced to lose one sense, what would be one I'd bear to lose? So you made me think, and I decided on my sense of smell. Though I wouldn't be able to taste as well as I used to, my sense of smell is already half-gone, so it wouldn't be as big a loss as sight or hearing.

     

    This is a very interesting and intelligent entry you have, Taka Nuvia. You're definitely very thought-provoking.
