What piece do you use most often?

What piece do you use most often while mocing? I tend to use ball joints the most, I never have enough. I also run out of those light gray things that are flat circles and one stud big with a plus in the middle. I dont know what they are called.

Oh yes, balljoints are so useful...
Actually I don't use them very often due to a shortage of them.


I'm not sure which is the other part that you mean...

Metru heads. I'm not that good with the design of custom heads, mine are often very unstable.

Feet. I usually use them for body and leg armor. Next thing I know, I've ran out!

What piece you say?

2x axle :P

For feMOCs though, well it's been the useless right angled bent arms. They make great torsos.

I tend to use glatorian necks and ball joints the most.

This may be embarrassing, but I would say the Inika Torso. Making custom torsos is hard for me, so I just use the ones LEGO has made.

It just takes a bit of practice. Often the best way to get the form you want is by taking the reference (i.e. Idealised female form) and see what part looks like the part you want to emulate. Once you know where all the cladding on the outside goes, find the small parts that will help with internal structure as well as holding the cladding/armor in place. Just keep experimenting! ^_^

Thanks! I think I've made a pretty good fem torso. You can see it on my Volt and Blaze V3 MOCs.
