“I thought my cause was justified, but then I got this acccursed mask… I can’t remove it… and I probably shouldn’t.”
Tarak the Sullen of the Divided. Protector of the sanctum, who refuses to collaborate with his companions. He constantly seems lost, both in thought as much as life. He was given the mask of shadows discovered in the Sunken Forge, which turned him into his current downcast state.
Despite their unkown origin, the base and protective presence of the Divided attracted matoran, forming a small community, now known as the Sanctum of the Divided.
Please don’t tell me how he looks like that AU Teridax. I realised that very late in the process.
Anywho, Tarak is my first moc of the Divided, a ragtag group of characters in the desolate land of Maanos in my new storyline. I have atleast 3 other characters planned, if not more.
He has one of my most complex designs in a while. The lower legs have a lot of tension going to keep everything in place and the thighs are very experimental, but quite functional. I love 'em. The lower arms are also a bit of an experiment inspired by Oblivious521’s Syraelle, though I went for more bulk.
I built the campfire as a prop, since I figured it’d be nice to have a theme of sorts at the next exhibit in 2 months. I’m trying to go for warriors sitting around a fire doing whatever. For extra authenticity I threw a couple of brown axle connectors into the flames as firewood.
Comments appreciated. For the sake of constructive criticism, give me something positive before you slap on the negative, otherwise it’s demotivating. Positive->negative->suggestions is a good guideline that I personally use.
