Greetings again people! Haven't been MOCing for while or put an effort for MOCing last few months (Due to my college and my finals.). Well, except I made some final adjustments on some of my MOCs, making some finishing touches. Anyhoo, let's go on to the topic, shall I introduce to you, Eciar, The Shock Striker!
Eciar, The Shock Striker
So, how this character was created? This character was back then a tablescrap MOC, experimenting around with parts.
But, that's where I didn't felt right about Eciar's first appearence. It wasn't fitable for rest of my collection, it lacked construction's complexity and it was way too simplified for my taste. I never finished her first version though, but that's where I considered on July 16' to rebuild her. Main reason was Metal Gear Solid 5 game... And Female Skulls... (I'm afraid I'm having MGS fever.).
Something what I'm glad with Eciar's second version is more feminine look (Yeah I tend to build female MOCs with feminine appearence, but trying to avoid overly sexualized designs as possible). Though the nuva butt design is alright but same time eh, I know, but that probably will be my first and last experimenting to use Nuva shoulders as rear. Also, her hip joints are somewhat limited, but also the balljoints tends to pop off from her hip connection.
One thing that I reused a specific build, is her upper torso. At first glance it looks different (somewhat), but let's say here that I reused my Gali 3.0 upper torso built on Eciar's build, with a minor redesigning though.
As for inspirations, Eciar's Rail Blade/Pony tail idea came from Llortor's (DA) self MOC Eltanin's ponytail design, which I approve the idea he came up with. Second helpful inspiration is her back neck guard thing (Comment if there is a specific term for that, it would be appreciated ), which is from The-Dapper-Scrapper aka formerly known as Fenrek. I got inspired by one of his MOCs, Thronxx of name MOC.
While Eciar is somewhat old MOC that needed adjustments and her biography (Though I might rewrite some sentences or some details on her story), I'm quite pleased how she turned out. Could have been done a bit better I think, but as for now, she is an alright looking MOC, which now she fits for my collection. Comments and criticisms are welcomed as always, they're always appreciated to help me for making better looking MOCs in future. As for now, I'll see ya around soon!
