Bionicle drawing: Jesus College Rooster by Rahiden
Bionicle drawing: Jesus College Rooster
A biro drawing of my Jesus College Rooster MOC. I'm rather fond of it; my only regret is that the wattle (the flappy bit below its chin) is a bit too dark, so you can't really tell it apart from the black pieces that well. I hope you like it!
Time taken: ~3 hours

Bullets '14

Mon Dec 29, 2014, 3:16 PM


:bulletwhite: It’s been three months since my last journal and I’ve been feeling rather pensive lately, so I thought I’d do another reflection blog! Two years ago I wrote one with precisely 2012 characters, which seemed rather short, but instead of writing 2014 words I’ll be dividing them into 14 neat little bullets today; the sad stuff goes in the middle, with the happy stuff on either side. Let’s go!

:bulletgreen: We’ll start on a positive note, shall we? 2014 has been arguably my best year in terms of MOC designing, if I do say so myself; my Bunny, Stego, and Rooster are all vying for the top spot on my list of personal favourites. Notice how they’re all medium-large Creatures, just the way I like it! Understandably I don’t get as much time to build these days, but I’m quite pleased with what I’ve done on that front this year.

:bulletred: One of the reasons why I have no time for MOCing during term time (besides the fact that I’m doing an Engineering degree, which is a fact I sometimes forget) is because I’ve taken up rather a lot of extracurricular activities this year. Having finished a course in Advanced German, I’m now taking Beginner Japanese classes every week, which is incredibly fun – I’m in a class full of other Asians who think that everything is kawaii! Japanese only takes up a couple of hours a week, so that’s fine, and Advanced Mandarin took up a couple more hours a week before I dropped it, so that was just a slightly less enjoyable fine. Oh, and maybe I should mention badminton and tennis, which take up a few hours each week as well, so that’s fine too, I suppose.

:bulletorange: And then there’s music, which has been about as good as it ever was, really. The brass trio I’m in is going pretty well, and this year I’ve done two solo recitals to varying degrees of success, so I’m pretty chuffed about that. Besides that I’ve cut down from five musical ensembles to just two, in addition to a spot on the Music Society committee, all of which are loads of fun and I get to see my music friends more often. It just takes up several hours per week, which is, you know... fine!

:bulletpurple: Probably the most significant new activity is coxing. You may be aware of how enthusiastic Cambridge University is about rowing, and somehow I have become a boatie! Basically I’m the small guy at the back who doesn’t really know how to row, and my job is to coach the eight burly men on how to row. (I also have to steer. If the boat capsizes, it’s my fault.) Despite having had only three months’ experience I am apparently quite competent at not crashing the boat into hazards such as grass or swans, so next term I’m going to be in charge of the first senior men’s boat of Jesus College, which is a pretty scary prospect! I’ve met a bunch of really cool people with the same boatie drive, and while I do have to get up painfully early on a regular basis, I think it’s all worth it. It just takes up so many hours a week, which is... which is...

:bulletblack: Okay, it’s been getting a bit much. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoy every one of the activities that I do, but I just have no time for things anymore! I have less time to get my actual work done, and every moment spent ‘chilling’ is done under a looming cloud of guilt. I’d say that this past term has been the most stressful of my life, partly due to the constant obligations and commitments, and there have been several times where I feel like I’m on the brink of cracking. Even my body agrees with me: I have eczema on my neck that fires up when I get stressed for long periods of time, and it’s by far the worst that it’s ever been. It spread a lot around my body, making my skin excruciatingly itchy all the time and causing me to have uncontrollable spasms, and if I succumbed to it (which, after losing the will to fight back, I did frequently), I’d end up with a bleeding neck and several spots that leaked some kind of fluid thing. It’s lucky that the collar stains weren’t permanent. The wounds are slowly healing up now, thanks to my doctor mother, steroid cream, and decent sleep for a change, though it comes back alarmingly easily. I dread to think that it might rear up again next term.

:bulletyellow: The main trigger happened this summer, on Results Day, and since then my confidence (in several fields, not just academia) has taken a pretty big hit. I spent a lot of time gazing out of car windows thinking about the definition of depression. The time commitment thing doesn’t help; I’m used to being slightly ahead, doing work based on when it can be done rather than its deadline, but that’s simply not possible anymore and it’s really disconcerting. I’d prepared a mini-essay about work ethics and the like, but I think I’ll spare you from it this time round – this journal is probably already too long as it is. In any case, I’m slowly coming to terms with the disappointment, and I know it’s not quite as life-changing as I make it out to be... I just hope I can remedy things next year.

:bulletpink: The other topic that’s constantly been on my mind this term is relationships. There’s very little to report in that sector this year: a crush that I knew was impossible from the start, and as expected nothing happened, though we’re still good friends now, thankfully. It’s just that the topic relentlessly persists in everyday conversations – dates, girlfriends, sex, exes – as if I weren’t thinking about it enough already! It’s all just an unhelpful reminder of the untouched slate that is my lovelife; I’ve already had the ‘Why don’t you have a girlfriend yet’ conversation with my mother, to which my main response was “Well, it’s not for lack of trying...”. I’m trying to be patient, following the “Your time will come!” advice of my supportive friends, but I can’t help but feel lonely and pathetic.

:bulletblue: So yeah, it’s been a pretty tough term. I think there’s a lot to be said about general negativity in this day and age: it’s easy to complain, and it’s almost expected for people to respond with their own woes as a schadenfreude offering of sorts, as if it’s a competition to see who has the most miserable life. And hey, I’m well aware that I’m in a more fortunate position than many, but we all have the right to complain a little, don’t we? Meanwhile, telling people about how happy you are or how well things are going gets incredibly tedious (see the first couple of bullet points of this blog entry) and becomes solely self-gratifying after a while. For much of this term, I really wanted to be asked “How are you?” in the genuine sense, not the usual conversational pleasantries for which “Fine thanks, you?” is the only acceptable answer, just so that I knew that someone was concerned for me... and in fairness, a small handful did once I’d made my instability sufficiently obvious, and then we sat in our kitchen and sipped tea, making things at least a little bit better. I received a cute little card that says ‘Don’t worry, be happy!’, and I subsequently pinned it to my board.

:bulletpurple: I dunno, I’m coping, somehow. I’ve found myself buying new clothes and games on impulse, for example: I’m currently making my way through Pokémon Alpha Sapphire with a team nicknamed after Smash Bros characters, such as Rosalina the Gardevoir and Falco the Swellow. I also have a new laptop and refurbished bedroom this year, which is all well and good... see, this is what happens when I talk about happy things! I’m bored already.

:bulletorange: Let’s switch from things I have to things I’d like, shall we? This is my response to Gale-OneOfMany’s tag in which we are asked to name ten holiday wishes, which I am interpreting as both late Christmas wishes and New Year’s resolutions. Here goes:

1. Time! Time for work, time for play, time for sleep, time for memories.
2. I’d like to reiterate the above wish. With enough of it I could handle the next 8 myself.
3. See :bulletblack:.
4. I’d like it if my real-life friends were better off financially. I can see them struggling, and I really want to help, but I’m not sure how.
5. See :bulletyellow:.
6. The new Bionicle sets look intriguing. I think I’ll get Kopaka for old times’ sake.
7. See :bulletpink:.
8. I’ve always been fond of xkcd merchandise. I have my eyes on the Self Reference Shirt in particular.
9. See :bulletblue:.
10. I’m glad that I haven’t become inactive on deviantArt despite all the above. I wish it continues this way.

:bulletred: Picking up on that last part, I think I’m fairly happy with my maintained deviantArt activity. I haven’t done much writing this past term for obvious reasons, though I’m glad I finished the Cantablogger series earlier this year, even if it did fizzle out somewhat towards the end. While I can’t promise any submissions in particular (both MOCs and journals, that is), I’ll make sure I’ll stick around.

:bulletgreen: In some ways you could say that my activities have shifted from the virtual to the real world, as 2014 has been groundbreaking in the field of ‘Lego in the public eye’ for me personally. I first talked about this in Cantablogger Part 7: MOCer Diaries, but it’s worth mentioning again: my MOCs appeared in a college arts festival in February, and then later I was the featured artist in our student paper. However, the best is yet to come: in January 2015, Jesus College is hosting an Arts Festival of its own, and my Jesus College Rooster has been chosen to be the festival’s icon! Before long there’ll be posters put up all around Cambridge, each depicting the proud little bird on dazzling A3; I’ll have to make sure I nab one of them for safekeeping. At least that’s something to look forward to!

:bulletwhite: All in all, 2014 was... yeah, not my best year by a long shot. In fairness, the first half was pretty good, but life has an annoying habit of making us brush the positives aside, doesn’t it? I realise that most of the problems I’ve had this year are entirely self-induced: one is simply the case of biting off more than I can chew, and the others are me moping about things that probably aren't as serious as I make them out to be. Perhaps that’s the key to achieving the ‘Don’t worry, be happy’ attitude... ah well. Sorry for the rather downbeat journal, but it’s an accurate reflection of my mood as of late. Happy holidays to all who’ve read this far, and here’s to a brighter 2015!

Bionicle MOCs - December 2014 by Rahiden
Bionicle MOCs - December 2014
I take a groupshot of all of my current MOCs every six months, so here they are as of December 2014. With 11 additions since June, bringing the total up to 69 (or 71 depending on nomenclature), I'd say that this has been a pretty successful half-year! The photo gets more and more hectic as the years go by, making it harder to distribute the colours and more tiresome to ensure that everybody's head can be seen. This year the set-up and dusting took several hours! I've said this many times before, but I'm gonna need a bigger shelf.

Here's the gallery of groupshots since December 2008: rahiden.deviantart.com/gallery…
And here's the gallery containing the majority of the MOCs you see here: rahiden.deviantart.com/gallery…

Hope you like them! :D

Bionicle MOC: Diablo Lionfish by Rahiden
Bionicle MOC: Diablo Lionfish
The Diablo Lionfish is a rare (imaginary) breed of lionfish, so named after the devil-like horns on its head. Its body is significantly longer compared to the common species, and its spines are shorter but more venomous.

This MOC started off as a regular lionfish ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pterois ) in the hopes of using up all the spiky lime pieces I have, but I later realised that the shapes are all wrong - while I do like the head (particularly the little devil horns), the rest is just a misshapen spiky... thing. I was also rather pushed for time, as I had to complete the build before I moved out! Yeah, I'm not a fan of this MOC.

I previously considered naming this 'Prehistoric Lionfish' or something of that ilk as a feeble excuse for its incorrect anatomy, and I'm not sure about the current name either. Comments and suggestions for both design alterations and name changes are welcome!

And lastly, a shoutout to Crimson-Werewolf for the incredibly generous donation of pieces! :D

Bionicle MOC: Jesus College Rooster by Rahiden
Bionicle MOC: Jesus College Rooster
The signature animal of my college (Jesus College, Cambridge) is a red and black rooster. I thought I'd build one.

I'm very happy with how this turned out. There are articulation points at the neck, hips, and knees, as well as two in each wing, but I prefer keeping it in this standing pose. It's surprisingly stable on those tiny feet! There's a little bit of articulation in each of the two middle toes that allow for minor adjustments.

Oh, and if I were to name him, his name would be Crest. I like the double meaning. Hope you like him!

Aiden
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United Kingdom
Hello there, and welcome to my deviantArt page. My name is Aiden.

My gallery mainly consists of things I've created using Lego Bionicle and Hero Factory, known as MOCs. You'll also find satellite projects like my webcomic Hero Faffory, stopmotion animations, and the occasional biro drawing too.
I enjoy writing blog entries, for which you can find a directory further down this page.

:bulletred: What is a MOC?
MOC stands for My Own Creation; it is a term used to describe models made using Lego pieces but designed by the owner, so it is not an official Lego set.

:bulletred: Can you make instructions for your MOCs please?
I don't do instructions, sorry. This is partly because instructions take a lot of time and effort, and partly because I have learned that work on the Internet is all too easily stolen.

What are your thoughts about HF, i was devastated when lego replaced it Bionicle, i just don't see the detail and the child in me when i use Hf. Which is why i usually take part in bionicle vs Hf things, but what about you?

I think Hero Factory is okay. Yes, I was saddened by Bionicle's departure, but I didn't dwell on it - HF gives me new pieces to play with, so I'm happy. I was never that into the storyline anyway ;)

I'm afraid I can't really comment on your Rahkshi... the picture is so small that I can't make out anything. Upon looking at Viden, though, I'd suggest turning your mind to shaping - get a better idea of what shape you want your MOC to have, and avoid having pins or axles sticking out unnecesarily.

And finally, I believe my selfMOC Toa Niyyan would suffice ;)
