Timothy Giles was a young child at age eight in 2009. Born into a suburban lifestyle with his newlywed parents, Trisha and Jack. Raised primarily by his mother, Tim was a quiet child, devoid of any fatherly love. Considering his father was a business man, commuting to Pittsburgh for a 9-5 job. A tall, very thin child, was always good to his parents and a decent student. Bullied for his girlish nature, repeatedly, refused to fight back. He was a loving boy who was too nice to be appreciated by his peers.
After one particular night, Jack would come home, drunk, and blame his wife for all of his work, with his fists. This was common for Timothy to see, happening every other week, he thought it was normal, considering Trisha just smiled and went on with life. Tim hears the car start at 3 at night, curious, he goes down to look. He finds his mother sitting with a hose inches away from her mouth, while the song Naked As We Came by Iron and Wine, lifeless. Timmy gets in the car, and thought that his parents had a really rough fight. He slept next to her body, thinking that she needed him more than ever.
He awoke to find that he had been turned into a large metal man. He has become a Necrospherian. To become one, the act of suicide becomes punishment for those who commit it. Timothy climbed into the car, ending his life, and becoming a spectral being. No longer knowing his own name, and can only think of the word "Docile." He becomes scared, asking for his mother, but no where to be found.
On Etyosa, the yellow figure, Mallory, walks up to Docile, asking why he is so scared. "My mama...I thought she was asleep...do you know my mama?" Horrorfied by the fact a small child was in this world, and the fact she was alone for many years after her death, she came to a solution. "Dear, I am your mama...it is going to be alright, you are safe." Docile collapses over her, gleefully crying. Mallory knows she has done wrong, but she knows of what Necrospherians have: they forget their past lives. Such information was pasted onto her by a doctor. Knowing that his mother would never recognize her own son, she acted as a motherly figure, and continued in search, of the shadow.
Seems like I'm the only one who likes the human-into-bionicle concept. cool build, although I've got to say the legs are... bad. The shins at least. I like the concept but the gaps and holes make it look poorly cobbled together, the feet especially so. I do like the rest of the build and story though. Very cool.
I think the proportions are what's bugging me. Something just isn't clicking in the back of my mind with this guy... Don't think I'm blasting you on this one; the chrome parts are really well used and there's an insane level of detail to him... but if I saw this guy drawn on paper, say, alongside the other necrospherians, I wouldn't like him as much.
Cool concept with the explanation of what happens to those who commit suicide. Wouldn't his mother be a Necrospherian too someplace? I like the build, but the foot connection looks to bare and exposed. The lower legs have nice mechanics, and the torso is very well constructed. That head is kind of creepy too. Excellent work.
Quoting Gringat the Repugnant
I can't say I like this MOC nearly as much as your last few. There are some interesting techniques, sure, but the end result is a bit... meh, to be honest. Why the asymmetric?
Lack of pieces. And also, why not? All the other Necros have comes out asymmetrical, and I think it adds to their character. It's not distracting, the proportion are exactly the same down the middle.
