Hey, everyone! I'm Lindel, and I'm very new to MOCing. These are a few pictures of the projects I'm currently working on. They are some of my first MOCs ever, so obviously they aren't the best quality, but I hope that I'll grow and learn as a builder as I continue MOCing. Your feedback would be really appreciated, so please rate and comment!
About this creation


This is a concept alien species design for a story I'm planning for MOCpages. They're roughly the same height as a Minfig, but the arms are more poseable. I'm pretty pleased with how the head came out. It's really simple, but I've never seen it done before. In real life the Mola Ram helmet is going to have a lot of brown on it, but I think it will still work. The frowning Minifig face hopefully won't be too visible. =P I'm currently trying to get the pieces so I can actually build these two LDD models. They'll be part of some larger MOCs that I'm planning.



Another alien species for my upcoming sci-fi story. I'll be adding some better pics of these two LDD models soon. The legs are based on the arm design used in Brian Kescenovitz's Csek Reapers, part of Brian's incredible Dawn Forge theme, which also features some of the best LEGO Mechs I've ever seen!




I call this guy "Astromael, the Broken King". He's a huge pain to try to get a decent photo of. *Sigh.* Not knowing a thing about photography doesn't help, either. Anyway, he's a prototype for my fan-made Somniferrian Ancient. He's based on the spectacular Somniferrian Ancients done by Clever Crowe . If you haven't seen them already, I highly recommend taking a look at Clever Crowe's Somniferrian Creations. Clever's photography and building skills are breathtaking, and combined with his his great writing, these are some of my favorite Bionicle MOCs. I've worked out most of the lore surrounding Astrom, so now I just have to get around to taking some halfway decent photos of him... My writing skills may not match Clever's, but they're certainly better than my photography. =P

That's all for now, folks. Again, comments/ratings/criticism are greatly appreciated!

Quoting Garrett A. Nice stuff! Huh, I'm making an Ancient as well ;).
Thanks, I'm glad you like it! I've been working on some stuff for my own line of MOCs, and got a little sidetracked from Astrom recently. =P It might be a little while before I get him his own page. I can't wait to see your Ancient! =D

Quoting Timothy Domingo Thanks for approving my criticism(that 'sounded' weird).You seem like a real nice person.
You're very welcome. Thanks again for the advice, like I said, your critiques are much appreciated, and I'm glad you gave your honest opinion about it. I glanced over your page, and your Bio-MOCs look great, by the way! :) I'll try to get some time in to review them soon. Keep building!

Quoting Timothy Domingo I must say he's quite messy looking,a revamp should be in order.Please make him more solid.I will give you a point for bulk,since you're a beginner.
Thanks you for the review, Timothy. I'll probably get around to revamping him sometime soon, and when I do, I'll try to tidy him up. The main reason I haven't gotten around to it yet is because I've been busy with some other a couple other MOCs which have been occupying most of my attention lately. Again, thanks for the review, and I'll keep your advice in mind when I get back to that project. :)

Quoting Clever Crowe Gotta say, Lindel, those legs are looking really good! Especially like using that technique on the upper thigh myself; good rounded muscle shapes, there. Like the feet and ankle articulations as well! Keep me posted! =P
Thanks much for the review, Clever! :) I'll be buying a plain white sheet soon, which will open up more possibilities for posing, angles, etc, since it's a lot bigger than my poster board. Then I'll be able to post a whole page for him. I'll let you know when I do. Thanks again for the review!

Quoting Clever Crowe A wrinkle-free Bedsheet! Cheap, easy. OR alot of folks on MOCpages simply curve a piece of Posterboard (color of your choice). Even cheaper (but often you have to weight or tape corners to keep from uncurling/falling). Avoid any backdrop with repeating patterns (plaid, paisley, etc.). Solid colors are good. ;)
Alright, thanks for all your help! :D One question: What is the reason for taking for pictures from far away and using zoom?

Quoting Clever Crowe Like what I can see of Astromael thus far. especially that leg design; would like a close look at those, and the feet. Looks good, keep me posted =) A NON-Pro Tip on photography: when in doubt, take LOTS o SHOTS. Then you choose faves painlessly. Take shots from AS FAR AWAY as you can, then ZOOM in to let Auto-Focus do its job. Can't see details at max zoom?: step closer. Use a tripod if you can, or stacks of books, chairs, etc to keep Cam super-steady when using this method. At distance, little shakes mean BIG blurs. And LIGHT YOUR AREA as best as possible. BIG-SECRET;) I use an old lamp with the shade taken off! Ghetto, rite? =) Ah, well. I'm not rich. Basically, turn on as many lights as you can, then use ONE MORE, that can be set near (and in different positions) around where your MOC stands. Hope these help! MOC ON, Lindel!
Thanks for the review and advice, Clever! :D I'll definitely keep in mind what you said when I'm taking more pictures. Have you got any advice on what could make relatively cheap, good background for pictures? Thanks again! :)
