I'm sort of planning for a comic of my own. I got the name of one page already set out for myself. A mutant MOC that can transform into a giant predatory bird escapes from the research center where these cruel experiments where preformed on him. The title is called: "On a wing and a prayer"
you should animate this on youtube
Why can't I ever build anything with even a sliver of this awesomeness? (especially Avalanche. Avalanche is epic.) Well, okay, it'd help if I mixed parts more...

I have almost every bionicle ever created (and I'm not bragging when I say that, I literally have all but say... a few dozen? I don't remember my last count), but I don't like to mix parts, 'cause then I have to sort them back into their sets when I'm done >.<
(Just realized I need to make a correction: not every set, of course, but every type. Just re-read and heard how that sounded :P)

Hehe, thanks ^^; If you'd like, I could give some building tips. I used to be a bit like you (hesitant to mix parts, I mean) so I often stuck to combiners using only the pieces from a few sets, such as one I made with the 6 Visorak [link] . Everything's far easier once you have more freedom, though :D
Gah, even the scorpion is cooler than anything I've made. (Which, of course, I don't MOC much, and I've never posted anything I do make. They usually get put out of their hideous misery before I do. :P)
Just wondering, do you ever use LDD to help design your MOCs? [link] It looks like it would be easier due to the fact you have every piece ever, but also harder, because it seems like it would help to have the actual physical piece.

Also, thanks for the offer of help (but I get the feeling a lot of other people have also asked, so I'll let them take turns first XP).

I've been tempted by LDD before, but nothing beats old-school physical building. Imagination comes far more easily that way, and I spend enough time in front of a screen as it is ;)

Without wanting to toot my own horn, I often give people little pointers in terms of MOCing... it gets repetitive sometimes, but it feels good. Since I have nothing to go on right now, it might be worth having a look at this; since I'm partly responsible for Quality Control at the BionicleMOCers'League, I wrote a little something in an attempt to describe what makes a MOC 'good'.
(With a recent look over LDD again, I realized I lied when I said it had ever piece ever. Much frustration XP They don't even have the inika lower legs! You'd think they'd hold onto that.)

That'll definitely be helpful, thanks :) I imagine it wouldn't be easy to describe a good MOC, with all the variety. I'll also take a look at the BionicleMOCers'League; took a quick glance, and the things there look pretty good.

P.S., found the elephant :P Took two tries, too
