Silas, Honourable King

Due to lack of interest in my moc series, I am discontinuing it. I will still post my self moc later on. I have scrapped most of the other mocs in the series though.

I felt that if I took the photos on my porch on a sunny day, the quality would be better. I was wrong…

I also needed a setting, so I threw in a custom skeleton and flag. The skeleton is only supposed to be viewed from one angle, so it is (pun intended here) very bare-bones. The idea is that this used to be some sort of archer…

The flag is also just a tacked on moc for the setting.

With the actual figure in the moc, the axe and shield are also kinda tacked on, the sword is the only weaopn I am displaying this moc with (outside of these pictures). This guy doesn’t really have a backstory, I just kinda built the moc around the piece I use for the head, which is a custom build. Here is the head:

Here are the figure’s weapons/accessories:

And finally, here is the figure itself:

And here is the action feature:

I am going to find a way to get a better picture of the head, when I do it will be posted here:


I like the weapons and head. The rest of the build is fairly standard, but it’s fine for what it is. Good job, overall.

Yeah, sady you just don’t get the comic-bookish feel I was going for with technic. Probably by version 3.0 I will have those kinks worked out. Version 2.0 will be out soon.

By “soon” I mean sometime this decade…

You appear to use back lighting for a lot of these photos, which isn’t a good idea if you want us to see the moc. If it were one photo meant to make it look cool then it’s not a bad idea, but if you want us to look at the moc in general then you need a better lighting source.

You should either use a lamp or move the picture setting to where the sun strikes the front of the moc (or anything you want to photgraphi) or even flash if you have it.

I really don’t have a studio set up for mocs. Thanks for the lighting advice.

My only cameras are my laptop’s camera and my flip phone’s (because I really don’t like smart phones) camera. I have no idea how to upload photos from the flip phone to my computer though.
