Well, It's been a year since I joined Mocpages and I still can't get more than 5 "ilikeits" no matter how good I may build >.<
Nevermind, "ilikeits" are not the main reason I've joined Mocpages for. The main reason is I want to be able to see my creations after when they're dismantled for parts. I owe Mocpages a lot - it showed me building techniques (I've never heard of SNOT before
I joined) that helped me improve my skills. It also made me photograph my creations, so I wouldn't "lose" them forever. I've uploaded 121 creations and became a favourite builder of 9 people during this year. Now for the Moc. This is CHIBI Recoome from Dragon Ball Z, my second CHIBI creation (excluding CHIBI Goku which I've changed to Mecha Goku). It's my best creation I made during this year.
About this creation
Recoome is my second favourite Dragon Ball Z character, my favourite is Nappa.
His legs. I usually start the description from the head down, but not this time.
CHIBI Recoome is 29 cm tall, so he's the tallest and heaviest non-minifig scale (excluding Bionicle) creation I've ever made. His legs hardly bear such a weight, so I couldn't make excessive poses.
I've based him on a picture, so I believe he's really accurate.
The puny decal I've made for his armour. If I'd straighten the left horn...
HOW DID A PIC WITH YELLOW LIGHT GET INTO A MOC LIKE THIS!?!
His arm. His legs and arms are very flexible.
Hand idea partially took from MOODSWIM.
I've always liked the arms straps.
His head. Probably the best part of the Moc.
The face. I like the way the eyes went out. I know the blue eye thingy is supposed to be green, but I didn't have the right pieces.
Details on the eye thingy.
His hair. Not as good as my Mecha Goku's hair, but still good.
The back. What's that weird thingy on his neck? Uh... I can explain it...
He is too fragile to make battle poses :(
This creation is on permanent (until dismantling for parts) display in...my house.
Please rate and comment on my best creation so far!
Awesome, man and congrats on yer anniversary! This is definately one of your best creations. Here's a tip for making the legs stronger: use hinge plates instead of the clip pieces. That will make it sturdier and more poesable (check out my SW action figures for ideas). As far as not getting many "Like it"s, don't worry. It takes time. Just be super-productive and participate in groups. You'll get noticed:)
