Hey I wrote little notes but you can ignore them and be just as well off
Honestly, it feels like I only post when I have a new self-MOC. This went up on flickr a while ago but I’ve had a really rough week so I had no access to a laptop to post stuff here.
Archer is my new self-MOC. To explain the change from Eyun, screw Eyun.
Seriously though, Eyun and I were not alike so how dare I try to call him my self-representation. Now, Archer is sticking around for longer than Eyun ever did (which was about eight months, pitifully).
Archer. An OC with no known identity other than “Archer”. So as not to spoil anything, he’s a resurrected heroic spirit from the past.
Archer is the type of person who claims to be a former king in his previous life (which is not improbable, considering his background) and will look down his egotistical nose at you if you show him no good reason to respect you. That said, he’s still a knight and isn’t a complete intolerable person and is actually rather mannerly, chivalrous and polite to most people.
With Archer I wished to mix a Skrall vibe with style of build, so while his armor is light and clearly that of an archer, he also has large lower legs and ankleguards. The odd dab of silver tears at the repetition of black, and that’s its sole purpose so it has just enough of that too.
Something about Archer is that he uses two blades, two swords, despite his titular mastery of the bow. He is asked relentlessly why he fights using swords, and replies, “Because I keep losing with them.”
Is Archer worn out of victory? Or does he seek the thrill of a closer fight? Or both? Archer claims to have been brought back to life with no memory of his past life and yet claims to be a king. Archer also claims to seek a world where none are harmed nor oppressed, but seeks just as much a world lacking stagnation.
Due to these three inconsistencies, Archer has gained the reputation of being referred to as the “Antinomy,” as an antinomy is a contradiction between two beliefs or conclusions that are in themselves reasonable; a paradox.
This is a bit confusing, and will be unexplained for now, but his bow here is cloaked in blue flames and he has loaded a gold-tipped arrow. He’s also firing at my former self-MOC. Call me metaphorical.
This is a new character and a V1 (no less), so critique, criticism and all manner of feedback are appreciated and welcomed. As of V1, I know of one person who has built a variant of Archer, albeit a near-total replication that he didn’t publicly share. But to me that bodes a good omen for a new self-MOC.
