(WIP) The Great Darkness

Hey guys, this is the second instalment to the cosmic beings, the Great Darkness!!! As you can probably see there's not much yet but after my last exam next week I'm going to really work on it. As always any feedback is greatly appreciated, especially on this as I want to make this a moc where people have a say in what happens! smile

(PS: for some reason I have to wait a while after I have made a topic to actually post pictures sorry)

The website has been experiencing technical difficulties when it comes to photo uploads.

In the meanwhile, I might recommend posting to imgur and linking the gallery, or etc.

Very cool, although Dionysis seems a tad bit more sinister. Maybe you should try multiple rows of smaller teeth or something along those lines?

As opposed to @Garnira, I can actually picture the Great Darkness as the more sinister because he looks more feral and organized, somewhat like how Makuta Teridax was evil but orderly and the Rakshi were more chaotic. On to the WIP though, friggin great.I wish I could take MOCing lessons from you

looking at it, it looks like a nice, menacing dragon

Oh my God! I very much look forward to seeing the finished product.

Nice. Very menacing.

Hey guys, I'll let you decide this one. Should the colour scheme be black with orange highlights or with lime green highlights??

Hmmm. I say orange because orange and black is kind of a Halloween-esque theme, and that matches with the Great Darkness' sinister and scary look.

Also should I include a function such as a gear system to move the tail left and right?

I don't know if wagging his tail would be all too evil. XD
If you want to add a gear function, I encourage you to make it one that opens skeletal wings out of his back or something in that vein.

I was thinking teethalong the lines of sharp, vicious, and unnatural. If he's going to be the embodiment of darkness, it would seem all too appropriate if he was frightening beyond just being big and dark.

Haha yea true! smile
The way I have designed him now is that you can see his organs through a rib cage. As for the wings I like the idea of that and will definitely look into it!

This moc is going to be enormous.

I think you guys will be happy to know that the upper body, head and arms are complete. All that's left to do is the legs and tail and then it will be finished!! smile

Might be easier creating an imgur album until the boards photo posting issues are fixed, would be easier to view the pictures that way rather than opening each one and comparing.

That said, from the designs I'm impressed. Though the thing that is nagging me is just small variations in the colour. I know it cant be helped in some occasions due to piece requirements, however if you do have the pieces I would suggest replacing the red ball pieces with the black one's, the blue and red pins with the black ones and generally just blending them in with the design as to me they are noticeable as everything else is a very consistent colour scheme.

Hope to see the full design soon though :3

One step ahead of you my friend! smile I have already replaced the red ball pieces in the hands and mouth and swapped the blue double length pins with black. As for colour highlights I hope you will be happy with the different coloured organs beneath his rib cage. I will be posting a couple of images when I get home from college.

EPIC! (So far)
