I am really happy with how bird-like this Owl is. I hope you like him too!
TO THE MOC!!
Species: Raptor Owl
Element: Aura and Time
Kanohi: Kiel, Mask of Silence
Weapons: Razor Talons
Personality: Fun, but can get inpatient at times. He will fight for what he believes in.
Backstory: Owl was a first class student in his search and rescue class. He was hunting a warlord for the Ice Talons, when suddenly, a huge black cloud of Shadowspace blocked out the sun. Although Owl's eyes immediately adjusted to the pitch black darkness, something knocked him out of the sky. As soon as he was about to crash into the ground, a spiraling portal took him to another world. When he came to, he was surrounded by nothing. He is determined to find his was home. Owl flew around the New World he was taken to, and found a war-torn city called Ghetta Nui. He fought for freedom (as best as he could) and soon after defeated one of the bigger Gang Lords. (continued in the MOC)
Text at the top of the picture.
We continue Owl's story from when he defeated the Gang Lord.
He was merciful and didn't end him, but he made sure that the Gang Lord wouldn't be stupid by throwing him into custody with The Free.
Solonus thanked him for bringing in one of the most notorious Gang Leaders.
Owl decided he was sick of all the violence in the city, and took off for a new location.
When Owl was flying over a abandoned village, he stopped to see what had happened. He found a dying Toa of Air, stabbed in the back.
The Toa grabbed him and with his dying words muttered:
"Guard this piece of Time with your....life...." and died.
Owl took it in his talons, examining it. I looked like a small clock, but it had a faint glow.
He put it around his neck, and swore to guard the "Timepiece" as long as he could.
Now for some poses. I am kinda torn about the non-poseability of the wings, but he looks more birdlike with them.
Owl: "BLAST OFF!!"
Lookin' all burdlike...
Rearish view. Like the tail feathers?
Still rearish. I think i might remove the Pridak feet. They look too bulky.
I gave him a gun thing for his Ghetta Nui stage, whatcha think?
I love this shot. If any of yas wants to make a poster, I'm thinking lightning and stormclouds in the back.
He cans fly. I really like the wings. They look... better.
New Talons. More like feathers. And they bend!
Flying again. Unlike the 3rd version of Owl, he looks good when he flies. Yup.
If you don't want to make a poster of the first picture, make it of this one. Lightning and Storm clouds.
Nuther tail-feather shot.
Want to see something different in Owl? Join this group and tell how you think he could be better!
Oh rite. NEW BUDDY ICON!!!
Thanks for Looking!
The next CYOA episode will be delayed until approximately September 10th. Its really hard for me to build the sets when we have people looking at our house every 3 hours. We have to keep our house clean. Sorry.
I think that Owl deserves to get at least 35 likes. AMIRITE?
The feet and wings/talons are a big improvement! They look great, I think you should place bohrok eyes on his tail differently. It looks like he has a head on his rear. :P A great improvement. Brilliant job. :D
Time flies like an arrow - and fruit flies like a banana. Teehee. I love this version of Owl. Like TLO said, please don't remove the pridak feet. They work well. And I couldn't really see the owl face before either, so you've done well in this revamp. Nothing to suggest an improvement really, unless you have a lot of white fang/spike parts...? Greebles are awesome on any MOC, man. Just sayin'
I'll be honest- Although I always loved the concept an character, there were a few things in your previos versions of Owl that really bugged be. But this is so drasticly improved, it's insane! The claws actually look owl-ish now, they blend perfectly and still look like claws! I can tell that they are much more posable as well. The wings look fantastic, muc improved. Please don't remove the Pridak feet, they look so great. If anything, make them posable. Could you attatch a Hordika neck to them? The feet are great. Best of all, though, is the recoloration in the head. Before I just couldn't dee the owl face. The blue pin in the beak bugged me, and I personally don't like using rubber bands being the only thing holding parts on. The new beak, recolored eyes and new eye attatchment drasticly improve the overall appearance of the MOC. This is now a self-MOC I can really admire. Fantastic. Wow, that was a long comment. I hope you don't mind.
Wow,where do I start?Well,I love the improvement on Owl's fingers,his old ones seemed awkard.XD The fact that he looks so much more like an Owl!Nice nice name,glad you didn't say "Owl" twice.Also like the white wings now.:) So Owl has had an amazing impact!Great job!:)
