My ranking system:
:star-empty::star-empty::star-empty::star-empty::star-empty: - Nothing more than a joke.
:star::star-empty::star-empty::star-empty::star-empty: - A bad MOC. (but I take the attempt serious)
:star::star::star-empty::star-empty::star-empty: - A standard MOC. (on the level of an original set)
:star::star::star::star-empty::star-empty:- A good MOC.
:star::star::star::star::star-empty:- An impressive MOC. (goes beyond my expections)
:star::star::star::star::star:- An amazing MOC! (when I clearly think that the MOC is above what I'm capable of)

:star-half: - potential for reaching the next level.



Mega-Beedrill - vector remake of original artwork
Well, I really love the new Mega-Beedrill! :)
It's my new most favorite Mega-Evolution and I wanted to have the first picture in better quality, so used Adobe Illustrator to trace the artwork.
So the original artwork is by Ken Sugimori.
Here the source I used:…
Hope you guys like it :)
LEGO Render - System Parts Menger Sponge by Alex-Darkrai
LEGO Render - System Parts Menger Sponge
Here a little something I've been playing around with for the last few weeks :)
I tried digitizing a few lego bricks and arranging to bigger forms with one of my 3D progs and then made a few tries to render (don't know the correct english term) them.

I wasn't all that satisfied with LDD, like it's impossible to get decent pictures from it. At least I haven't found a way myself yet.

Maybe I'm gonna start to digitizive more bricks and create other structures as well. It's quite fun, because I can basically build as big and as complex as I wish.

It's also great for pre-building a MOC for which I still have to buy the parts for. This way I can optimize the structrue and easily count the amount of parts.

If anybody has good ideas for what I could try next or knows how/where I could get good materials for digitizing new bricks, especially the more complex ones like technique and curved bricks, then feel free to give me a hint.
Or does anybody know how to extract the LDD library? xD

Personal Quote: Fascinating!

I have been thinking about it for the last few months!

I wasn't really able to produce anything new or anything I'm satisfied with. Even Yevrah was more of an experiment where I tried something new, but it wasn't the usual MOCing which I prefer to do.

Which is why I really thought about leaving back my parts and MOCs.

Until this weekend; I had originally planned to spend the evening with some friends and went home from university for that reason. Sadly it got too late and I wasn't able to meet up with my friends, so I stayed home with nothing to do for the first time in a while.

I grabbed some parts, as always, and tried a bit around. Nothing productive happened for awhile until I thought back to the the last series of MOCs which still had to be completed; the Star Series.

Last time, I tried to create the Kalmah themed Star, but I wasn't really successful and anything I created came out wrong, so I left it unfinished for the most time.

I really never had any idea how to probably start on the MOC; I wasn't able to connect the parts for the torso in the way I wanted, I wasn't able to make an authentic concept for the head design, and I wasn't able to achieve the design for the limbs which I desired, so was a little unwilling to start with him.

However, I suddenly felt the urge to try it again and dug out the bin with the black/dark-red gradient colored parts and started to work on the old problems again.

Guess what? I found solutions for all my old problem!

Got the head right, the torso, the shoulders and the lower legs! Now I have enough base constructions to finish the MOC the way I wanted!

I noticed that I was able to solve most of the problems, because of experience from prior newer MOCs. If I hadn't build those, I wouldn't have been able to create this new MOC!

This also gave me the renewed urge to keep on MOCing! It is still fun, as long as I have projects I wanna to and I'm still able to learn new techniques with every MOC.

I'm probably gonna finish the Kalmah themed Star next weekend, I'm really looking forward to that one :)

Wow I have seen several of your Mocs on the bionicle club but I didn't know they were all made by you. They are simply incredible. I love the way you use pieces in a way that I have never thought of.

Oh thank you ^^
Sadly, I wasn't able to create anything since my university life has gotten more intense ^^;
Slythenperior Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Yeah I know the feeling. I still have a little bit of time to work on some things, but not as much as I would like.

Hi Alex, how have you been? Its been far too long since we last chat or had a good conversation about anything. How how's school and life going?
Alex-Darkrai Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Well, reason for me posting something new pretty much is, that I've made my
Bachelor's degree last Thursday :D
Now I'm gonna try to find an internship within an architectural office and after that, I plan to start studying for the Master's degree ^^
