Nyran's MOC Updates

So, I took some photos of some updates to MOCs I did.

First thing I did was edit Arikas. Mostly just her legs. I was unsatisfied with the first ones. So I tried something new.

Less curves and with restricted articulation. Dunno if it looks good.

Obligatory back shot.

Also I wanted to experiment with Orikad. Like @Risebell wanted I tried to make him have red eyes. They look far more evil.


Is legit.


So I'll have interchangeable sets.

So this is Arikas and Orikad with Knightpriest, the other character essential to their story.

I'm happy with how they all look at this point, mostly.

But I do wanna try fixing Arikas's legs once more.

I like the legs quite a bit; the Bohrok torso pies make her look like she's got very wide-cuffed pant legs. Orikad looks legit whether he has red or white eyes, so good job there.

This story involving all of them... I know nothing of it, but based on what I'm seeing here, I think I'd find it rather interesting.

Well, you nothing about it because I have posted nothing about it.

It involves two heel face turns, and a lot of over-the-top shenanigans.

Also stolen technology and a gafna.

The idea is mostly to play around with the usual "power trio" trope idea.

Ah, that would make sense.

Ooh, interesting.

Also, what.

Ah, okay. I look forward to this!

This is a Gafna. Its an indigenous rahi to Voya Nui. It migrated to spherus magna.

A guy named Spinax Studios made one. I have one. It's between Ari and KP.

It serves as like, Team Pet, basically. I have it there because I can.

Well, I know what a Gafna is. Should have been more clear, sorry. Just, the way you said that whole thing was rather interesting.

Orikad looks great! I really like the improvements you've made, especially with the legs. Speaking of legs, whilst I think Arikas looks awesome, the silver/light grey legs disrupt the consistently Mata red colour scheme you have, so they look quite out of place. Great MOCs!

I need more black of those light grey parts, and red slizer feet.

then I will be happy with life, probably.

Sad Orikad is Sad.

I meant to take this pic of the eyes upside down, but didn't.

So yeah, I find it hilarious looking.

I'm looking at Orikad's lower legs. I really dig those for some reason.

Also, Knightpriest is as amazing as always.

well the upper legs on arikas have been mentioned
So thats all for her that I have real problems with

the red eyes on orikad look nice

Alright. It's nitpicking time.

They are all quite well done technique-wise, but I find a few things a little lacking. First of all, I'm not really sure about Arikas' chestplate. I don't think it's the design that bothers me, but rather that it's kind of an unbroken blob of red. I just feel like you need something in there to break it up.

The only thing that bugs me about Orikad is how... Unsubstantial his feet are. He looks really heavy, but then the feet are thin and gappy. They just don't look like they can support his weight. also, those red pins in the hands are killing me

Lastly, this goes for your mocs in general, but I think they need a little more intrigue. I find myself liking Orikad better than Arikas partially because his head is so cool and unique. I think if you added something that really made her stand out she might look a lot better overall.

Your cries have been heard, and I decided to upgrade further.

Orikad. Arikas is a different beast entirely, and I couldn't if I wanted to TBH.

But Orikad

Behold:

Obligatory Back Shot.

I love this pose a lot.

I liked the old feet, but these do actually look better. Very nice work!
