 [color=#078446;][font="courier;"]It's been quite a while since I've posted anything on BZPower at all, so I feel the new BBCC is a perfect time to rejuvenate my post count.[/color][/font] [color=#078446;][font="courier;"]This here's Beelzebub. He's a pretty quick build made off of a WIP I made using Big Chill's wings from the Ben 10 line. I just wanted to utilize those pieces as torso armor. I might not be the first one to do it, but I've always loved how it flows into the body.[/color][/font] [color=#078446;][font="courier;"]The design and coloration is based off of the Calliphora vomitoria, better known as the blue bottle fly. An early name for him was the Sapphire Trumpeter, because I imagine the annoying buzzing sound flies make would either sound like a war trumpet or small jet engine when enlarged to human size.[/color][/font] [color=#078446;][font="courier;"]C&C are welcomed.[/color][/font]

blue! black! four arms! this thing is pretty cool. I liked how you used Gorast wings as swords. wondering when people would catch on to that. apparently, you have ^_^. though in my opinion, the wheels look a bit out of place where they are. and the feet look a bit small. maybe using Antroz feet instead would help it flow a bit better.

Overall pretty nice insect vibe; as you said, the upper body's armor has a great flow to it.I do agree with XG12 about the tires. Those can be great to bulk up a MOC, but you've got to know where to use them, and I don't really like the currently placement.The head is too large for the body, though I actually like that because it helps the insect feel of the MOC.

Not insulting Farhan's creativity, but that's a pretty common idea, just so you know.

[font="'Courier New';"][color=#008141;]@X-G. 12: I somewhat agree on the rubber tires. Perhaps it was caused by the different types of lighting used when building and taking photographs, but they seemed to blend right in when I put them there. As for the tiny feet, I actually used Vezon's feet at first, but I felt it looked more reptilian than insectoid, and insect feet are actually too small to distinguish from their legs anyway.[/color][/font]

[font="'Courier New';"][color=#008141;]Yes, the enlarged head was intentional. And those swords were quite literally added at the last minute. They were the only weapons I had at hand that fit in with the insect theme.[/color][/font]
