Armored Protector

Armored Protector (18/293)

  1. "This is Harrow, the monastic, the ritualist. Harrow is suffragan to the Void. Will you believe, Tenno?" — Lotus Cross-posts: Patreon | Twitter | Artstation
  2. I believe I have cited the source of inspiration in the description.
  3. Roodaka (Bionicle) by Artemiy Karpinskiy, on Flickr "Always remember this, little hordeling... though I am not a Visorak, I too can weave a web." — Roodaka to a Boggarak, Shadow Play Roodaka was a treacherous female Vortixx in Bionicle canon, who worked a double agent for both Brotherhood of Makuta and the Dark Hunters, was a key figure in one of the major story arcs, and a generally unpleasant villain to deal with. Inspired by Demitsorou's design.
  4. This is Samus Aran, a famous bounty hunter and the main protagonist of the Metroid game series. Made as a very belated b-day gift for a good friend. The model itself took me 3 hours, the render took another 3, and I am p sure all of Photoshop shenanigans took me 3 more, so it's 9 in total! Made with Lego Digital Designer. Rendered in POV-Ray. Post-processed in Adobe Photoshop.
  5. Saw this on Flickr the other day! Superb stuff!
  6. Thank you! That's the biggest challenge to me: how to add more details to parts that don't have their own designated decals/stickers/whatnot? I think that I am getting the hang of it to be honest. Pretty sure the hemmed boots are not it, but thank you anyway!
  7. Sometimes it feels like too many in the community think that them giving critique is warranted and necessary. But that's okay! As long as we are nice to each other, we can get along.
  8. Ironclad is a playable character in a card-based dungeon crawling roguelike game called Slay The Spire. Ironclad used to be a soldier, but sold their soul to the demons to obtain their power to scale the Spire and slay its heart. Made with Lego Digital Designer. Rendered in POV-Ray. Post-processed in Adobe Photoshop. The design process for the model can be seen here: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/385969225
  9. Thank you! I can't say for certain. Eventually, everything is possible. The Piraka can be a challenge, but I already built a Skakdi MOC so it's not like I can't do it. It's more of the case of me having time (I have plenty), energy (I don't have a lot of it at any given time) or motivation (see energy). So yeah, maybe someday! But you know what? I actually did Toa Nuva! Or, rather, the Phantoka.
  10. This is Lucaira, a Bionicle OC of my friend JarODragon, made as an impromptu birthday gift art.
  11. Thank you! I somewhat pride myself on my brick-build Bionicle designs! You can see it in another of my recent threads here, The Toa Hagah.
  12. Thank you guys! @Pohatutron, I am glad I made you feel that way. I really wanted to capture the feel of the old Vahki animations. It's ok that you can't provide any criticism! Thank you for your feedback anyway! <3
  13. Vahki were the mechanical law enforcers designed by Nuparu that kept order in the more dystopian times in the city of Metru Nui. Making Onu-Metru their home and the Great Archives their domain, Rorzakhs used their Staves of Presence to spy on the Matoran suspects, routing out illegal trade hubs and Matoran Underworld hideouts. Stalking the ramparts and scaffolds of ta-Metru, Nuurakhs used their Staves of Command, forcing the Ta-Matoran to turn their undivided attention to the work at hand, sometimes to the point of complete exhaustion. Overseeing the district from the rooftops of the crystalline spires of Ko-Metru, the Keerakhs ensured peace by using their Staves of Confusion, making any troublemakers lose their sense of time and space long enough for Vahki to apprehend them. Stalking the canals of Ga-Metru, the Bordakhs used their Staves of Loyalty to make the Matoran delinquents willingly hand over their accomplices and reveal the locations of hidden Matoran Underworld hideouts. Stomping the badlands of Po-Metru, the Zadakhs employed their Staves of Suggestion to soften up the minds of even the most rock-hard stubborn Po-Matoran. Watching over the hubs of Le-Metru, Vorzakhs possessed Staves of Erasing. Considered the most terrifying of all Vahki Staff powers, Staff of Erasing was capable of temporarily stripping the target of any higher mental functioning, leaving them shambling along the streets of Le-Metru without a thought or reason. This was a huge undertaking. It took me a lot of time, energy and motivation to not only put the staves together, but also pose the models in an appealing way, as well as create interesting backgrounds/scenes to put them in. For me as a content creator this set of models is a bit of a milestone as I have started to employ heavily the vector graphics using Adobe Photoshop. Vectors are hella fun but also a handful! I am glad I am doing them though. With some of those I struggled a lot, and in these moments I received help from my spouse Demitsorou who is an amazing artist and you totally should check them out. I've no idea where to go from here, but I guess up is a good direction?.. Anyway, thank you for reading this and checking out my newest creations. <3
