Kind of a short post today. I didn't take a lot of photos and I didn't do the usual Half-Hearted Dialougue things. So shrug. I Also apologize in advance for the awful lighting, but you know, iPhones.
About this creation
Mask: Kanohi Hau
Equipment: Neon Saber
Attributes: After having a brief encounter with a pack of Visorak, a trace of venom entered her left arm. After years of dormancy the venom sprang to life, and in a matter of days mutated both her personality and her arm.
P.A.: Netuv's personality has been severely altered by the Hordika Venom. Her once strict following of the Toa Code was broken a day after the Venom woke, she killed a rogue skrall that ambushed her in a forsaken canyon. Her once valiant nature has been corrupted to the point she has difficulty holding herself back when in the mere presence of a Matoran. She now prefers solitude, hunting for both survival and the satisfaction of the kill. Helping those in need is not below her, but she will try to satisfy the lust for the hunt with any nearby animal.
I had a lot of fun building this Toa. I really like how she came out, especially with those Samus shoulders she's got. Whenever I build a humanoid I try to arrange colors into a clothing/skin pattern assigning colors to each. For her, my imagining from the beginning was that black and red are like skin(aside from the ankle armor), and silver and neon would be armor. I think I made it work pretty well here. And just a fun fact for you, I got the name from the periodic name of Neon, and I used the letters that correspond with Neon's three stable isotopes, 20, 21, and 22.
So anyway, please comment and critique, I would really appreciate some feedback on her.
This is good...Quite good, and while I agree with L.A. about the Neon thing I really love the build and storyline. You are like many others on Mocpages are quite talented in building Bio-Mocs. Again great job and I would like to see more of this character again soon.

This MOC is really good, i do like the upper arm and body plus i love how you didn't used the Nuva Shoulder as chest armor. The lower leg is odd and i think you should add some more red or silver armor. The upper leg is ok but i really do not like that piece you put on her butt.
First of all, I don't find her particullary... 'neonic', if the word exists xD Also, the Hordika claw doesn't convince me too much.. And I'm done with the negative points. =P Now with the good ones; I have seeing from a long time ago that your designs are improving a lot, and for some reason this gives me a 'Gale-stlyed' vibe, probably for the torso/upper-arm combination. Not something bad, since we all know how he improved xD I'm glad to see that you keep improving, coming up with cool designs that have the perfect balance between complexity and simplicity. My favourite part of all the MOC is the lower back, refering to the things and the skirt armor, they look great together <3 Also, I'm interested too on the lower legs, with the Ackar armor and the HF transred plate. To sum up, wonderful job, but not very suitable for the category in my opinion (I mean, I'm really sure you could come up with something more suitable). Good luck, my dear! <3
Nice job Terilis. A fantastic MOC and a good story both of which I'm a sucker for. Alright Critic mode on. Very good shaping on this. You can tell she is female just by looking at her and you didn't over do any proportions. Nice design on the claw but at a first glance It looked like a robotic replacement. I don't know if that was intentional so if it was ignore the next two sentences. I'm not an expert builder by any means so I don't really know how to fix it aside from making it either black or red. That's my only real problem however so don't think that I don't completely love the look of this moc. I'm no judge but in my book this deserves a 10/10 because you spin a good story and build a good MOC Terilis. Keep up the good work man :)
Lovely shaping. I knew right away this was a fem-moc from the thumb pic! I'm sorta sad that I didn't enter the contest this year, but I got involved in the Decisive Action Game. Buiilding, strategizing, keeping numbers has been soooo time-consuming. I knew I would not have time to build for this contest! Anyhoo, Good Luck to you! :)
