Well, since Oreum was already created before the creation of the Aristocrats, he does have a theme song (King Knight, by ALI Project)... But the rest of them do not. So I think I'll just post random songs there. In case you're interested of listening to something. ~~
Considering the season, what about this random Christmas song?
I relate to this so much these days ;~;
Also, you can check the old version of Oreum here.
So here you have, Oreum! Some people even asked for it, so he's back! Well, actually, now it's front... He he he... *smiles nervously*
Side. What do you think, dears? Does it look more royale?
Ba... Oh... Eh... This picture isn't very illustrative, right?
There it is, a better one. I don't like the upper part, but since I couldn't manage to attach something to cover it and anyways the cape is there...
Analisys! Feet! Still the same. Some 1x2 plates added for better stability. About the legs, they keep the same design, but were elonged. The waist connection was slightly modified to increase the articulability.
Torso! I worked a lot in this one, I tried to emulate a coat. Some people seemed to have a hard time to get it though, so it probably needs still a bit of work =/ But still, I like how it looks! The Mata head is supposed to emulate a handkerchief, by the way.
Arm! Elonged too, and with different elbow and hand designs. It's way more articulable now, but unlike the first version, he can't bend the arm more than 90 degrees. =/ Well, Eruei can't too so...
New shoulder design! Keeping the original one, just by adding some other parts now it can raise the arms with no problem!
And the head, which didn't change at all. ~~
Pose time! Since I don't have too much to say about these pictures, allow me to sum up his backstory a little.
Mata Nui wasn't the only Great Spirit in existance. The Great Beings have created more Universes in the past, and Oreum was the ruler of one of the very first of them. Still learning about how to create new worlds, the Great Beings made a mistake, and a singularity erased Oreum's universe...
But Oreum didn't die. He survived sealed between dimensions, in the now empty space which was his kingdom. From there he could see everything: what happened, what is happening, what will happen; where, when, to who. He became omniscient, in a empty, timeless world.
And that's how he learnt that he would be given a physical body from the Great Beings, and he would have to help Requia in her duties. But... Then...
Eruei appeared. Hearing the soft laughters from the Ehara, he discovered someone which he couldn't know about.
And suddenly, Oreum's life was interesting again.
Aaaaaaand I finished the writing before the pictures. Well, enjoy this last image, is one of my favourites from the page. <3
Let's start with the accesories! This item is the Principal Chair. From the same stone set the Moral Compass come from, it has the ability of permanence: anything you put on it will perdure and not change. That's why it was given to Oreum, so he could keep his physical body.
Back of the chair.
Oreum in the chair. It can hold any other Inika-sized MOC (or smaller), but the thigh design can't be very wid or it won't fit.
And now, Oreum's "main weapon", the Rapier of Sins. Why the name? No one knows... But it seems it's related to Oreum's past. Maybe the sixth Aristocrat knows something...?
Posing with it!
The Rapier can be stored to his waist by using the same parts needed to hold the weapon to his hand.
Comparation with our favourite Inika model, Lianyu. Oreum grew a lot since the last time, right?
Three of the Aristocrats are already assembled! Just other three to go!
That's it for now! Bye bye!
Christmas! Christmas! It already happened! And I missed it! Dx
Seriously, dears, I'm supposed to be on vacations... And my routine is still the same! Wake up early in the morning and study, do homework or prepare exames until the night arrives! This year I have a lot more of work than usual... I even had to study in Christmas! I never did it before! *sigh*
So... Sorry for not being active these days. I would like to say that I'll try to be more active, but... I already did... And didn't work... But I wanna... Seriously... *sobs*
Well, let's talk about the backstory of the MOC. Some of you sure remember this slim guy. I built him for the BCBS November contest, Unlimited Flexibility, which consisted in create a poseable figure avoiding balljoints. I was quite pleased with the concept and the building back then, but after some time it started to look more and more imperfect. So, one day, I decided to create a team for Eruei, and Oreum, which was there in my shelf with no story at all, would be a part of it. But, for that, he needed a full redesign.
Surprisingly, that didn't happen at the end. Oreum still keeps the same original structure, all I did was elong his body and limbs and add more parts and details. Back then I didn't have the parts, but I'm quite surprised that I didn't try to build him in a similar way to his actual version.
The Principal Chair is another play on words, using both concepts of the word Principal: director and main. It's not as good as Moral Compass, but well, I want to create more student items with punny names =P I decided to give Oreum a desk chair because he needed a throne; Maren's is now too small for him. And, since I probably I'll give each of the Aristocrats a tool related to school, a swivel chair seemed the better option for Oreum =D
And with this we finish the Wave 3 of the Aristocrats! But don't worry, I already started to build the next wave... In fact, a non-expected newcomer joined for the BFTGM contest, the new renamed "Aristocrat number 5"! Probably it's not a mystery for most of you since I already uploaded it on Flickr... I really prefer MOCpages, but well, it's way easier to upload the MOCs there. =/
That's all, dears! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas (tell me about it! What did you get from Santa?), and my best regards for this new year for everyone! See ya, my fellow MOCers! <3
