I'll start this off by saying that this was inspired entirely by the unquestionably brilliant Squieu and his mindblowingly awesome mechs. This was what the Frankenstein project fell pray to and is honestly so much better. Now I know others have made Squieu mechs here at MOCpages (Ryan Tennant, Dali Zheng) but I was trying to focus on aesthetics attractiveness as well as functionality. My Bolt Hardsuit is still my favorite creation but this thing runs a close second (lol unintentional puns). Anyway, enjoy the mech, hopefully I'll find the time to build more soon.
About this creation
So you see; I was just sitting here one day and then Phong drove by with his bandwagon and said "Hop in!" and I said "Sure, why not?" so here you all go.
Well, this was an interesting venture to build, I hope you had as much fun looking at it as I had building it (not likely). Anyway, leave a comment if you want. I'd appreciate it.
Sweetness! The build looked pretty good, but it went over the top with that handstand. I personally like the colors and the fact that your joint articulation allows for you to balance it on one hand is spectacular. Well done!
Great MOC! The color scheme is very good and the blue 'eyes' make a nice contrast with it.__By the way, are you brazilian, portuguese or something like that? 'Cause "tempo" is a portuguese word, it means "time"...
You told me in the email that you wanted some honest criticism, so here we go: The first negative thing I notice is that the colors, although they go very well together, seem a little bit busy. The use of two tones of gray AND a two tone main color scheme AND the trans blue accents just doesn't work that well here. However, it's more the implementation than it is the actual color scheme-- there are a few areas that contrast them right next to each other (like the chest and ankles), or that have one color butting right up against another color without any sort of transition. That being said, I love the use of lime and black, I may have to try that scheme sometime :D. The overall shaping of the body is very nice, but for some reason I see it looking more visually interesting with high-heeled feet setup, or something like on the OVER-LOAD. I love Squieu's mechs with those feet, so that'd be a nice change. Also, if there's anything that truly bothers me about it, it's that the body would look a TON more natural with another joint in the spine. this mirrors human form a bit better, and greatly improves poseability. Also, there is a tiny bit of mixing of old and new grays on this, and while that bugs me a tiny bit it's not a major issue.....Now that that's out of the way, let me be less critical: This thing is great. It's very clearly inspired by Squieu while never taking too directly from his work. The colorscheme does work very nicely, but a little tidying could help. The head is made of win. The chestpiece bugs me a tiny bit, although I can easily see how it was done and how few alternatives there are. Great job!
nice! i realy love that mix of clashing colours! that blue visor on its head also goes well with the mech, nice job overall! i thought you had left mocpages! maybe not :).... thanks for the comment on my mecha by the way ;) much appreciated, i like long comments ^_^ . anyway you get a well eared 5/5 for this!
