A Guest/self MOC for a good friend of mine on Deviantart, and the first ever "skakdi Nerd" with office furniture. XD
About this creation
Wretched Stare is a guest MOC for my friend Greg AKA Dire-Knight He was formerly known as Wretched Stare which I thought was a cooler name, but not as cool as Knight-Terror which was his old name. However, I felt Wretched Stare fits for the name of a MOC best out of all three.
About The MOC
I made this MOC in dedication to Greg because he's such a cool guy. He's made numerous art pieces as well as all the icons I use. So I felt he was deserving of a guest/self MOC that wasn't lame like my first attempt So technically this would be Wretched Stare Proper and the first one would be a prototype I guess. Last time Greg had me go in the direction of a Hellghast, but this time didn't give me any creative direction, "I would rather if you did it be 100% from your creativeness.
I would love to see what you come up with. :) " Well Greg, this is what I came up with. If you were a bionicle you'd be a multi-computer-using badass Skakdi(though not with reidak's face).
Wretched is a Skakti Mercenary for the Brotherhood of Makuta. He tries to move up in the ranks but for as much as he tries to pass himself off as a super tough guy, he's really kinda a goof. He's better suited at working magic on his laptops instead of fighting, so other Brotherhood members, Makuta or even Toa don't really take him seriously.
WS is equipped with an energy blade sword, gauntlet blaster shield which can double as knuckle dusters Energy stick(which he noms) and two canisters of a delicious beverage of his choice. He's also got some nifty office furnature. :D
Creating the MOC
This thing was kinda a pain in the ass. There was a lot of back and forth with it, meaning that I'd build it up, then tear it down and redo parts. I actually had finished legs on him and then said "nah this doesn't work" and changed them and the hip to allow for better movement. As I was building him I was thinking of this being my truly official Self MOC, but I knew I needed to make something for Greg. I was thinking I could call him "Wretched Eye" and he be both our self MOCs, but that idea just seemed lame the more I thought about it. So screw it, this is Wretched Stare, and Matteo is my official self MOC. WS is one of the "items" on my list of MOCs I'd like to make. This accomplishes the "build a MOC in my favorite color scheme" objective. : Greg has made several art renders in this scheme, like Dotz which I used for the background, as well as his own ID's so he must like it to. :D
Once I knew this was going to be Greg's MOC for sure I knew it needed something he couldn't go without, at least two laptop computers. Seriously, the guy is a tech junkie and has a bunch of cool machines. I shoulda also made a small little smart phone or something, wouldn't have been that hard to do I guess. Oh well. After I made the laptops I realized while taking pictures that he'd need somewhere to sit and use at least one of them, then that's when the idea hit me. BIONICLE OFFICE FURNITURE! :la: I particularly like the chair. I think this is something I'm gonna have to explore further.
Quoting Johann Dakitsch
Cool! Pretty weird proportioned, but with a nice color scheme. And I love the table set and the props.
Thanks. I had gotten some criticism about the proportions. The proportions are meant to be exaggerated or weird its bionicle. I really like this color scheme. its literally my favorite. I use black lime and purple for my icons. :D
