Artakha, Father of The Toa Mata (Canon Contest #2: Meet the Maker)

Well, it was in the nick of time, but I made it! (Please excuse the screenshots, my computer would’ve taken days to do Stud.io renders.)

Below are photos of the Action Pose, Front, Side, Back, Color-Coded Breakdowns, and A Showcase of how This Hammer is Optionally Extendable:

And I hope desperately that this link to the mask used works:

Welp, I see I was two minutes late (and I wasn’t really done with the coloration, either, anyway), so I won’t be linking this to the Contest Topic.

Welp, it was fun building this nonetheless. :man_shrugging::slightly_smiling_face:

Cheers all, and may the best MOC win.:+1: :beers:

Wait doesn’t the contest close in like, 23 hours? You should be fine still.

Besides, the gym needs those freaking GAINS.

EDIT: Ya you’ve got hours

and ending September 24th, 11:59 PM EDT.

Your PC Should not take days to render this. An hour at most.

Thank you for entering!

Unfortunately, the Google Docs file needs access to be requested. We need that to be public.

Additionally, we need a free download link to that mask.

Without those two things, we can’t accept this entry.

Uh-oh.
How do I get those?

Also, credit should be given where it is due:

The designs for the feet and hammer were very strongly based off of photos I found on the internet of this MOC made by BZpower member RuukaRiou.

His excellent MOC can be found here.

The hands were strongly based off of those from the Masterpiece Contest Entry of my fellow competitor @WholesomeGadunka (the hammer’s extendable handle, as well as another feature or two of this MOC was also based off of his Entry), as can be found here.

And last, but most certainly not the least, I’d like to thank @Connor_Hoffman.
If it wasn’t for the MOC tutorial videos you posted online, I would not have gotten this built. Most components of this MOC were made possible with elements of MOC building that you taught in those vids (if you’d like, you can try to spot all the references this MOC has to the ones you’ve made those videos for :wink:).
And, Mr. Hoffman has entered a Great Work of Art into this Contest, as can be found here.

Thank you all, and may the best MOC win.:+1::beers:
