The Rose (Plus MOC updates)

So… I’ve been meaning to make this post for a while, but I wasn’t sure how. So I’m gonna make it a hodgepodge of things. In a specific order.

Firstly… The Rose.

(Yay the background is back!)

So… there’s a story behind this rose, but… I’m not gonna post it here. This MOC has special meaning to me. That being said, this is it.

Build-wise it’s nothing too spectacular. The stem is made of 30 alternating patterns of green +o+ liftarms, with panels as leaves. Then the head is made around some IFB pod parts and a few other things.

Here’s the top of it. I used the Turaga Dune mask there to fill it up a bit. Funny story, that mask was given to me by @Tyrigsus8V for my birthday, making this even more special cx

That’s it for the rose. However, if you do want to know the meaning (and it is pretty melancholic), the blurred link is to the Flickr upload from around 3 or 4 months ago. So if you want, you can read up more on it there.

Moving onto MOC Updates!

  • Antaur

I updated the mandibles, because I needed the original ones for Kolk V3’s hands. I quite like the newer ones. They look more spooky.

I also thickened up the legs. Now he doesn’t even need a stand to stand. 10/10

  • Dragonfly

I updated the Thorax to be more organic and flow better. I think this itself makes the MOC 12x better.

Close up (sorta)

  • Group Shot.

Here’s a group shot of all my Assembled MOCs. Ya know, just for kicks xP

I hope to post more in the future, not only new MOCs, but general new topics as well. That being said, C&C is appreciated. This is Ventum, and I’m out~

Really though… I do need to make a post that’s not about my MOCs… maybe one day… Maybe even today XD

That is a great use of the IFB cocoon

While it looks nice, that rose scares me.

Would offer that rose to my nonexistant GF

10/10

It looks really nice. The Colors work well and such, and I like the… Wait. The Vase isn’t made out of LEGO anything. 0/10; No Redeeming Factors. Throw into a hole after your theoretical girlfriend breaks up with you. /s

Ha ha, thanks man. I would’ve made a Lego vase, but at the time, I just wanted to get the rose done. I prefer the non Lego vase though. It adds an appeal imho.

Again, thank you for the comment!
