I've never posted a kit before, but I was working on this over the downtime and I thought some of you guys might like it.Now, having looked at quite a few Bionicle sprite kits, I've noticed that they seem to fall into two categories:
- [*]Look slick and lifelike, but aren't very faithful to the sets[*]Very set-accurate, but poses look awkward and stiff.[/list]What I have tried to do is make a kit that combines the good features of both, while avoiding the bad features of neither. You will have to be the judges of whether I have succeeded.I have based a lot of the design on that of Templar Studios' MNOG characters.News
- [*]17/10/11: Topic created.[*]23/10/11: Tohunga Kit, Turaga Kit, Kanohi, and banner added.[*]29/10/11: Colour palette added.[*]30/10/11: Tohunga kit's colours fixed.[*]02/11/11: Turaga kit's colours fixed[/list]The KitsKanohi:Matoran (Tohunga):Turaga:Toa (Mata):Coming soonThe CharactersThese are the canon characters I have completed so far:Tahu: the only Toa Mata whose build is finished.Turaga:Matoran: Tohunga buildThe ColoursDSS uses the same nine-shade colour system as the MNOG-Style Character Creation kit. I have made my own modified colour set, as the colour charts used in the MSCC are very big and inconvenient when working with small sprites. I have also changed several colour names, incorporated other colours not used in the original MNOLG-SCCK and will be adding more colours at a later date.And, yes, I did say 9-bit. I know, this can make recolouring a bit of a pain, but I chose to do this because it allows for a greater depth of detail, texture and shading, and hopefully a more lifelike sprite.BannersChronicler's Company:RequestsIf you would like a custom Kanohi, weapon, tool, or any custom object not included in the kit, PM me or leave a comment here and I'll see what I can do.Also, if you'd like a character made for you and find the kit too hard to use, I'll try to help with that too.One last thing...I have spent quite a bit of time and effort making this, so I'd appreciate it if you would please do the following:
- [*]Please do not post any part of this kit claiming it as your own work. Please either give credit as DSS, or Ghosthands.[*]I am more than happy for people to use this kit, but I would ask that if you do, please inform me - just because I'd like to see what you're making![*]If you make custom parts such as Kanohi or weapons for DSS, feel free to send them to me so I can make them available to others.[/list]
