MOC off: Deus the Architect vs Daniel Brilliant: Nyeba, the Aspect of Air . It's on! Deus and I are having a dragon MOC off! . Rules: # Parts efficiency, the fewer the parts the better.  # Detailing. # Shape and body proportions. # Innovative design elements. # Expression of evil. # Size matters, the bigger the better. Each category will be scored from 1-10. Maximum overall score is obviously 60 points. Highest overall score wins. With her three heads, Nyeba may appear somewhat ungainly, but she is impossible to sneak up on and able to shoot lightning in almost any direction. I wanted to do something that departed from my previous work, so I added a couple of extra heads. With that in mind I figured that the body would need to be designed to accommodate the extra weight in the front so I based the body on a brachiosaurus. I structured the wing segments by using perpendicular bricks and I made them transparent. I really like the way that worked out, especially in the photoshopped pics. Looking at Deus's work I knew that I was in trouble in the the efficiency category. Smaug used 3559 parts and each neck and tail segment used about 50 parts. So, I went back to the drawing board and devised a method for articulating the neck and tail that uses about half as many parts. The panel pieces in the neck and tail informed the styling in the rest of the body. As for “expression of evil” I adapted the technique from Smaug and gave it a look more consistent with the rest of the styling. A poor brave knight ventures into Nyeba's cave to dispatch her. I hope that you like your knights crispy fried, because Nyeba has lightning breath. As for size, this picture shows the relative sizes of various dragons, ending in a mounted knight. Nyeba is not quite as big as Smaug, but she is still quite large. Acknowledgments: My Opponent The Group We Participate In Our Judge Backgrounds: Cave 1 Cave 2 Sky 1 Sky 2 Parts Used: 2456
