Hello there! Yesterday I wasn't able to access the forums (homeworks + I was sick ._.), so sorry for the little delay D: Anyways, today I want to show you Whenua, one of my favourite Toa Metru so far. His weapon isn't new, I took it from one of my old MOCs because I loved it ^^ I tried to make him tall, muscular and massive, with big shoulders to clearly show his Toa of Earth strenght. I experimented a new technique on his torso, allowing him to have very wide articulations on the arms/shoulders and a nice posability. For his lower legs I used a Visorak body, to make it a little bit slim and blocky. His legs look straight and simple, and I like how they are built. His arms were quite a pain, because I had almost no black pieces that fit the style I wanted, and I don't like using silver/gunmetal pieces, I wanted him to have one tint (with some grey/light grey gears and bones). Hope you'll enjoy it! Still working to cover these open pins His skeleton: its back is made with a black Rakshi Chest piece [http://fr.bricker.info/images/parts/44136.jpg], while the upper part is just a Metru waist piece. I'm also working on Vakama, here some improvements: I made him a couple of Skrall Blades and rebuilt his arms to make them symmetrical. I also removed his weird chest pieces and replaced them with two Piraka leg armors (couldn't find anything better, but I'm quite satisfied of the results) Still working to make a Kanoka Disc Launcher attachment, it'll probably be on his shoulder. For his back I used a Kindom's Dragon head (that piece came from a Viking boat, can't really remember the number of the set, but I'm 100% it's available in others) and a Barraki head; because I thought that without the Kanoka Disc Launcher on his back it looked too tiny and insignificant with that Matoran Armor. You can find the original one here and here too. Suggestions to improve my MOCs are always appreciated MOCPages Post Edit: Misspelled the title Edit: Spoiler tags for storyline spoilers only, please! Also, fixed the title for you. : P -Wind-
The Mary Sue from my really old fanfic returns in an attempt to be less of a Mary Sue. I don't really have a well-developed backstory yet, but I'm working on how to make her fit in the canon universe, because when she was created, a whole lot of the universe didn't exist (like in 2003 whenever Mask of Light came out, that's how little existed). Working backstory: After the destruction of the island of Mata Nui from Makuta Teridax and his Rahkshi, a rift forms between the Toa Nuva as they try to decide what to do with the island: Should they try to rebuild, or should they venture out to the new, uncertain city of Metru Nui. Most notably, Tahu, who is stuck in his ways, wishes to rebuild Ta-Koro to its former fortress glory, and Kopaka, taking cues from his Turaga, wishes to see to the future of the Matoran in the new world. Toa Eli (named after myself, as 11/12-year-old me would have it) arrives to help restore balace between the seven Toa, their villages, and the island paradise they once called home. Now she's a Toa of Psionics. She wears the Konohi Suletu, and carries a psionic bow and arrow which allows her to manipulate the emotions of her enemies. This is my first truly detailed biomechanical drawing....I understand there are probably a lot of flaws and I'm looking at more and more references to figure out where I went wrong and to make my designs stronger --- HB Whenua BEFORE anyone questions me: Dark skin contains the hues of the earth, of the underground. I think that it can work both ways, pale skin and dark skin. For this one, I chose dark skin. My Onua had pale-ish skin. 'Nuff said. -- You can also find my first Bionicle sketchdump (with my first EVER biomechanical drawings) here.
Entry into the Short Stories contest 9: http://www.bzpower.com/board/index.php?showtopic=3400's From: The fellowship of the ring(book),chapter 4:a journey in the dark,page 333-334.Whenua's tombThe light of the shaft fell directly on a table in the middle of the room: a single oblong block, about two feet high, upon which was laid a great slab of white stone."It looks like a tomb," muttered Takua, and bend forwards with a curious sense of foreboding, to look more closely at it. Matau came quickly to his side. On the slab ruins were deeply graven:"These are Daeron's runes, such as were used of old in Onu-Koro", said Matau. "Here is written in the tongues of Toa and Onu-Matoran:WHENUA SON OF FHENUALORD OF ONU-KORO.""He is dead then," said Frodo. "I feared it was so." Onepu cast his hood over his face.-CDP
