That looks pretty good.

 

I like the simplistic look of the staff, as it still looks great without being too complex. 

 

I also like the armour used on the shoulders, and the spine looks interesting. 

 

I would try to use a better looking piece for the spikes on his back, and I feel that there is just a bit too much red on the arms and legs. 

 

I'm also not a fan of the head, but it was the closest thing to the original in LDD, so you didn't have much choice. Still looks nice though.

I think that the Torso is a bit Gappy, but you did a Good Job trying to cover it up, oh, and one more thing, that is a Very nice Turahk, I couldn't do any better. *Looks over at the dozen Turahk Mocs that are covering teh desk, and starts tearing up*

Thanks! After making a design which used the Fire Villains' armour piece for the flames on the staff which actually looked pretty rubbish, I just decided to go for this one. :)

I used those Chima armour pieces specifically because they sort of resemble the original Rahkshi torso.

It's hard to replicate an authentic Rahkshi spine in LDD, but I understand your point. :) As for the red on the limbs, I added the red for the sake of spacing out the colour more evenly; almost entirely grey legs would have looked out of place next to the torso.

It looks okay, though the lower back part of the torso is a little empty

 That's fair enough. :) I personally feel like the torso is, although the most original part of the MOC, the weakest part; due to how I constructed it, it is quite hard to fill in the gaps.

 

Well done Master Miras *bows*

*Applause fills the room* :D Thanks!

 

I think you did a great job emulating the Rahkshi look with modern parts. The torso design in particular seems quite interesting. Would you mind possibly putting up the LDD file?

I'll get onto that in a bit- I have homework to do. :(

 

Thanks for all the comments everyone!

What I want to know is if you built this in the LDD, how did you get the image to look like that?

I'd like to know what you used for the render and how long it took to get the software up and running, as well as how long it took you to actually render it.

 

Aside from that, it looks good. I would, however, use a different head since this one isn't really fitting IMO. Maybe use the Skorpio head or something more Rahkshi-esque.

 

Good MOC nonetheless.

For the render, I used POV-Ray, and in order to convert the LXF file to one capable of being rendered by POV-Ray I used the LDD to POV-Ray converter. The amount of time it takes to render varies depending on how many pieces there are in the file, what quality you set the render to etc. As for the head, thanks! :D I'll consider that next time I'm making a Rahkshi in LDD.

I haven't actually tried it myself yet, but you should look into SimLab. It spares you the hassle of waiting 6+ hours (on a good day) for the render, as well as the conversion from LDD to POV_RAY.

Renders have never been particularly bad for me- even my most complex MOCs have only taken about 30 minutes to render. The only one that took way longer was this, which took two days to render.

How do you upload an LDD picture to the gallery? When I tried it they said it was to big.(and I wasn't permitted to upload the creation itself)

If you're talking about the BZP gallery, I didn't- I used an external image hosting site called Imgur for the picture and Brickshelf for the lxf file.
