Steampunk Self-Moc; Vaihden Lorem

It's been a while since I last posted. This is the most recent version of my self-moc. Still looking for a new name. Comment and critique is very much appreciated.

I might be watching too much Gundam, but it reminds me of Barbatos slightly. And that's a good thing. Very cool moc.

0/10 Needs more cogwheels.

Seriously though this is pretty legit stuff, love the wires here and there.

That is really cool. Really, really cool. I only have one minor nitpick, that being that the feet seem a bit too small.

The feet look a lot smaller; I think it's the angle.

This is, in my opinion, quite amazing. I really like what you've done here. All the wires and little greebles are quite nice.

I understand this is Steampunk-themed, however, this MOC is a bit over-greebled- specifically in the upper legs and arms.

Do the wires serve any functional purpose, or are they solely cosmetic? Regardless, I think that they make for some nice extra detailing.

Overall, though, I think this is one of the better Steampunk Constraction MOCs I've seen.

I tried my best to keep the legs fairly simple. The "greeblyness" of them comes from the structural integrity. And yes the wires are mainly cosmetic; and to add some color without being overbearing or obnoxious. Thanks for the criticisms.

This is very good. Not everyone likes it when MOCs have exposed technic, but I think it works here.

Also, there's a monocle. A+ tenouttaten best MOC, best MOC.

i swear I've seen like five mocs with that kind of monocle now

Wow, this is pretty good, and he really does feel like something out of steampunk.

Most of those monocle Mocs were probably his previous variations. :smile:

Indeed, in fact I was hoping he'd go even lankier, as it stands now the bulk is poorly implemented, it causes the proportions to be all sorts of wonk,
I don't like it at all.
The general aesthetic is rather nice though, and the piston waist is brilliant.

I do agree in some of the photos, the proportions look a bit off; but they are scaled fairly accurately. My style as a builder has changed over time. I am quite pleased with how it turned out and I acknowledge your opinions.

same, mate.

So much was improved since I last saw this guy. Very creative use of wiring.

Very cool looking, I love the torso.
If theres one thing i could nitpick on it would be the smoothness of the lower arms and their overall bulk.

Thanks, I want to work on an arm design that's not as bulky. It does seem pretty bulky from particular angles.
