About this creation
Name: Dark Aeon
Species: Neo Aeonian
Race: Neo
Gender: Male
Age: 16
Titles: Nihil Bandit
Occupation: Refugee(?), Thief
Element: Ether (unusable)
Weapons: Claws, Shotgun/Grenade Launcher Hybrid
Abilities: Cunning and intelligence
Theme: My Country Tis' of Thee (Legends and Lies)-Bleeding Fingers Music
Instrumental: Start Again-Tim Shiel
Personality: Cocky and sarcastic. Doesn't care about how his actions immediately affect the emotions of others. Charismatic, none the less. Has his own set of "cleaned" morals by which he abides.
Bio:
The exact details of Dark Aeon's birth are unknown. When he was in his early teens, Dark Aeon worked as a bell ringer in a small, secluded monastery in exchange for the necessities. A year and a half into the job, he discovered the existence of the Cult of Eros, which used the monastery as one of their headquarters. Dark Aeon decided to join the organization, where he was educated in sciences, maths, and literary skills, as well as more occult practices. At some point through unknown means, Dark Aeon's control over ether was reactivated, though he is unable to use it due to lack of training. Eventually, Dark Aeon left the cult, seeing many practices as "barbaric".

Dark Aeon moved into the less-developed west, where he made a living through robbing banks and stage coaches mostly through intimidation and nonviolent tactics (think Black Bart). His antics attracted the attention of the Eravian Government, who dug into his past and deemed him a threat to their control over Aeos. He was labelled a Level 5 Criminal and two Aeonian mercenaries were hired to kill him.


Tada! V7! He has really come a long way since V1 way back when. And it has only been about a year! Wow. A big thank you to everyone for the critiques, complements, and conversations along the whole ride.


Back. Not much, you can see how the bandoleer connects. At least it,s clean and well armored.


Legs. Really proud of these. They're supposed to look like jeans tucked into combat boots. Even added sand blue at the knees to look faded. :)


Sprinting.




Telling a story around a campfire pose.


Some sort of gargoyle-ish pose. Either that, or he's pooping. ;P


Kicking rather weakly. Unfortunately, he has weak hips, knees, and ankles. Ahh, at least there is sharpie.


Shotgun! Design is based off of a shotgun by BioRockDude, with some modifications to make the barrel rounder and for it to attach to DA's back.




"It's not too heavy..."


Shotgun attaches to back.




Sh-sh-sh-shotguuun.


Head up-close shot.


With the other two revamps. Note: DA is shorter because he is a teenager. Jet and Tect are in their thirties and forties, respectively.

In 4D:
Well, here's V7 and he is here to stay. Well, at least until V8. But the story is staying (finally). It still needs a bit more fleshing out and detailing, but the first chapter should be out by Friday, Sunday at the latest. It's going to be long, and have some cursing, thus Parental Guidance. Forewarned is four armed, as my seventh grade biology teacher used to say. I even have a proper name for the story: Neo Ordina: Revolution. As the story really progresses, the part after the colon will change, but the part before the colon will stay.

In other news, I am thinking of getting a deviantart account. Or rather, I got a free account, haven't done anything, and am debating whether to use it or terminate it because uselessness is useless and redundancy is redundant. If anyone out there *waves into Internet space* has any experience with deviantart, please tell me the pros vs cons of the site, other than the all media vs one photo argument.

Also, Jes still needs a theme! If you have a suggestion, let me know!

Anyways, til next time,

Dark Aeon

Edit: V7.2

Took out the jeans concept in favor of better looking legs. Only thing left to do is get the gunmetal out of his crotch. Also, if you look closely, I added two little harpoon/spear thingies to his bandolier.


Back.

Quoting Sean /EMMSixteenA4 Honestly this has some style. I like the mohawk (mane? Something like that?) and stuff. Preferred the blue legs though, now in 7.2 it looks bland and meh. Other than that, he's got a ridiculously skinny torso. And I've come to realize myself even that guns on MOCs lack any character whatsoever and are generally uninteresting, so I'm going to complain about that too. Still a good version though, maybe the best he's been at.
Thanks for the critique. Torso will be buffed in V7.5. And don't worry, DA will get new weapons.

*Whistles* You were busy weren't you? I love this moc. Really this is probably his best version. I love the shotgun and I love the legs. That jeans and boots idea is great and it works really well with the western theme. Overall really good. I honestly have no critique. Geez I'm gone to Arizona for eight days and you go and make this guy without even letting me know. For shame. XP

Also, could you do a how to on those lower legs and the upper arms? I'm quite curious about those. Though after maybe a year I could perhaps analyze them and then slowly piece them together...

Thanks. I have sadly removed the jeans in V4.2, but I actually prefer him aesthetically without the jeans. Will get that version a pic or two by tonight. And you think eight days is a longish time (at least, on MOCpages)? I'm going to be stuck in a camp in Georgia for five weeks! Imagine everything to catch up on *flails*

Quoting Wertman 8 Awesome stuff! He looks really solid. Eh, I personally am not into that whole 'patch-of-colour-in-a-MOC-to-represent-clothing' thing, but you've given an actual reason for it, and my thing with that is pretty much subjective. There's little else to criticize really; The head looks a little thin though, he could do with something on the side of his face. A worthy Self MOC nonetheless!
Thank you! This was actually my first attempt at building clothing, most likely I'll cut it to being exclusively boots. I'll try adding some grebbles to the side of the head, but the design makes it a bit difficult to do so, other than to the jaw.

Thanks! DA: *puts hand on Xavier's shoulder* She's out of both of our leagues. *pulls out shotgun and shoots Xavier* And that's for being creepy.

Quoting Kermunklin the Giant Evil House Head Cool incarnation of Dark Aeon. I actually like the colors in the first picture with the silver, black and white better than the actual colors. I'm guessing the first pic was an edit. Still quite cool though.
Thanks! I'll think about the colors for V8. Unfortunately, I have no silver Knights Kingdom or HF pieces, and I have grown somewhat fond of the gold/grey.

Thanks all! @Gil: His thighs are dark blue and the mata hand connecting to the knees are sand blue. @Ketros: I intend to replace the Inika shoulder armor with Inika thigh armor. Should look better. If not, I'll cut out the jeans idea entirely.

I love it! I must agree that some of the joints are a bit too thin. And the blu might clash with his colour scheme however I couldn't see the blue properly.

Seeing that title pic prepared me for a totally different MOC than the one that appeared. I for one welcome the idea of a black/silver/dark blue version of Aeon. (MOC is good but I still can't bring myself to like his color scheme as is)
  June 17, 2015
Best version yet! The waist is too thin and the inika armour on the thighs don't have any flow into the waist and hips and look really odd, other than that this is great, and I can't wait to see how much better he gets.

Quoting ~ Hazzy Great job! I just have a few tips for you: The torso is great, but I feel like the middle is a bit to thin, and it looks a bit awkward. and the legs look great but the inika armor on the sides make it look a bit fat and the metru thigh armor stick out a bit. Maybe you could add a black/dark blue/light blue Technic, Pin Connector 3 x 3 with Axle on the lower thighs to make it not too thin. I like the idea of jeans and boots, but the colors just seem a bit weird I think it's just me though :] I think that the head is extremely creative as it has that Mohawk :3 Great job overall, can't wait for the story!
Thanks for all the critique! I will see what I can do about the waist and legs and maybe better color balancing. At least V8 will be color scheme uniform :)

Well, I'm glad that you think it is at least good. The idea for the black/blue legs/waist is for them to be clothing, as in bits of cloth separate from the physical specimen. Official color scheme is still grey/gold, technically. Although your color scheme suggestion will be weighed into account for distant V8, against white/grey/keetorange (V8 DA will be a robot (spoilers)).
