Hero Factory MOC: Daedra by Rahiden Hero Factory MOC: Daedra by Rahiden
This MOC was a relatively quick build, as per request by ~twisteddragon2, to make my version of his MOC Daedra. Come to think of it, Daedra is my third MOC built as per request (along with these two). It's not my best work, definitely, but there are some aspects that I like about him.

The original can be seen here. The concept is centred around the Phantoka ribcage, with a demonic style and Evangelion-esque build. As you can see, I've made my own alterations, most notably the tail.
Hope you like!

Well to start with the focus of the moc, the chest is really well done! The angles of the HF parts mesh nicely with the angles of the technic.

The flexibility does not look too good overall. It's obvious you started with the chest, as the rest of the moc, while enough for the overall purpose, is lacking in comparison. Most notably the elbows, try to avoid that kind of joint orientation.

I know it's tough to work with mata red, I don't like to, but surely something else could have been done for the end of the tail. It ends rather abruptly.

Moving on to the legs, I really like the way you used the sockets as aesthetic on the knees, and the way you did it is very clever. But the gap between the knees and thighs looks awkward in just about any stance, so I think you could have done something else there.

In all, it has A very well-defined, impressive look, but some of the execution is lacking, where aesthetic was sacrificed for the ease of 3-5 part limbs.

1 out of 1 deviants thought this was fair.

Let me start by saying, the overall build is fantastic. It's got a great overall shape, and good color balance, though at some point you lost whatever "Eva-esque" traits you were trying to foster.

As far as vision goes, you're working within a fixed "field" and you did pretty well within it. You maintained the color scheme, and kept the most important "part" of the design in tact. In this case, though, there's at least one trait that the original definitely did better, and that's the hands. While they're quite long on the original, they were much more claw-like, and have a more pleasing overall design.

When it comes to originality, you're usually one of the best. Within that context, though, not a lot of this is used in ways I've never seen done before. It's not "surprising" or "Challenging" by the standards you yourself set.

Before I continue, great job ignoring the pressure and actually using a (modified) HF skeleton for the limbs. Most people just do not have the guts to do that, and I want to commend you for your bravery on that front. That said, it doesn't display your "technique" at all, and between the generic claws and the really bad use of Mata feet, coupled with the needless inclusion of Stars feet on the shoulders do a lot to detract from the overall shape of the upper body.

Despite the overall weakness of the limbs, the MOC has an exceptional torso design, and the head leaves nothing to be desired. No MOC is perfect, but this one is fairly memorable.

:shrug: I hear it's a term from Skyrim, but I didn't know that when I made it. It was a request, after all.

gad, I wish I could build as well as that. I've built a few of my own MOCs, but none turn out as good as yours or anyone elses.

The description should say Phantoka ribcage, by the way.
Rahiden Featured By Owner May 21, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ah, so it should. Thanks for pointing that out.
