This here is Kohnoh. He is a ranger in the Covalan corps. Covalan is a medieval setting created by me and another dude. Doughnut steel.
Kohnoh is a cross breed of a water and plant-life elemental, and has had a tragic backstory. From his father killing himself because of public shame, leaving Kohnoh an orphan, to his half brother turning against him and serving the God of Shadows, the dreaded Makuta.
I am a big fan of drawing more or less piece accurate concept art before I go and build a MOC, and this Toa was a result of this piece of artwork: http://www.bzpower.com/board/topic/18951-kohnoh-toa-of-the-trees-v2/
His design was based off of a cricket, and it shows of course. I wanted him to be a recognizable character amongst his friends, but I still wanted him to pop.
He obviously has stability issues because of his interesting leg design, but if you can stand him up against something, he’s quite posable.
Here’s a lil’ peek at his build. Pay no mind to his… dirty parts. Most of his pieces haven’t been taken care of that well.
In any case, he’s just an original character from a story I’m writing. He feels like an action figure of my favorite super hero, not a MOC I made from spare parts. Finally after 3 years of fanfic writing and revisions, I have him in my hands.
Edit: Forgot to mention that I’ll be painting the torso armor a leather brown, and his mask a dark green with the melded silver.
