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.

Mixel MOC  -  E-mail-y by Alex-Darkrai
Mixel MOC - E-mail-y
I don't know for your language, but in germany; her name would be a wonderfully bad pun on the name Emmelie, which is why I love it xD

Creators Note:
Well don't expect anything big, because this isn't.
I'm still not able to build MOCs as I like, because I'm still living far away from my parts. I came up with this MOC because I was searching for an easter present for my nephew and found those neat mixel sets! I'm gonna give him Burnard, because I wanted one for him with some joint-connectors and two of those big eye-parts, so he's able to use them on his own creations as well!

Well, and I got myself Rokit and Niksput for a testrun! I could have gotten the third one of the set, Nurp-Naut as well, but I actually just wanted to see how much quality those sets hold. And I must say that I'm quite happy with them! Most of the parts are usefull and can be used in various ways.

For E-mail-y I only used the parts of Rokit and Niksput (as seen within the image). Firstly, because I don't have any other parts right now and seconly to see what I could do with just those few parts. I must say that I'm quite pleased with the result.
It was a lot of fun to figure out how to get the shapes and functionalities done in the way I want them to look like.
I'm not really pleased with the head, but I wanted something proportional and in the right shape, rather than a cute expression, so I left it like that.
Oh yeah, the top right picture shows E-mail-y among the parts of Rokit and Niksput which weren't need to build her ... still quite a lot. Most of the big parts just don't fit to such a cute girl.

Tell me what you think!
I'll probably get more mixels! They do have all the parts I need to create what I want right now ... and they're cheap.

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: www.serebii.net/corocoro11143.…
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

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 :)
