Not to be confused with Overheat
Ember is a female fire demon, born of the flame and, unlike the explosive personalities of her element, is reasonably quiet. Her demeanour is more of a glowing coalfire rather than a raging inferno.
As a MOC, Ember began as nothing more than Overheat 3.0., which I had wanted to do for some time; I disliked Overheat's head and arms, and wanted to clean up the colour scheme a little. After deciding to redo the torso as well, I resolved to remake the entire MOC, meaning that Overheat and Ember are completely different structurally. The only trait that they share is the basic concept.
This is, of course, the colour scheme: coal-black at the feet, gradually rising through shades of red and orange until we reach wisps of yellow at the top. I'd say that Ember's transition is far smoother: see this comparison
to see what I mean. Perhaps the only thing I miss from Overheat is the digitigrade feet, but either way Ember is supposed to be more humanoid, and extra joints in feet tend to be less stable. I'm also happier with the parts usage on Ember, like the brain slug used as her spine!
Ember was made as a sort of counterpart to another MOC of mine, Fissure. Fissure's concept was centred around colour distribution too, except that his was the segregation of it as opposed to a steady sweep through a spectrum. I hope you like them both!Update
14/09/2013: Made a few changes which I thought were significant. The lower HF armour piece on Ember's head has been changed to yellow and there are a couple of other minor adjustments, but the major changes were the hips and upper legs. Her hips are now wider and more rounded (to the point where I think they may be too fat), which gave me room to stabilise the hip joint as well. Note that the critiques by ~Rannok
were written about Ember's previous version, which can be seen in the above comparison. As I have already photographed Ember's involvement in Hero Faffory, I highly doubt that I'll change anything else, so I hope you approve of the updates!Bionicle (c) Lego
