Bionicle MOC - Byorak 3.3 by Alex-Darkrai Bionicle MOC - Byorak 3.3 by Alex-Darkrai
It has been a long time since I have uploaded something related to Byorak!
I got myself some new white background material to take better pictures which are also worth improving with photoshop. Of course Byorak had to be the first MOC to test the background, because he's the biggest one of my MOCs and is thus able to test the limits of the background the best.
I also never took an actual action shot of him, although he's quite posable.


Creators Note:

As the title hints, this is only an update of the normal Byorak. I didn't recreate him entirely new. I realized that the Ehlek parts weren't fit to be placed where they had been, after many people pointed it out. I also reworked the upper legs completely, because they were too gappy and misshaped, in my opinion. I also fixed some flaws within the color distribution of the legs and added some details.
I also added some details to the head, made the eyes bright green and bigger in order to fit the size of his head better. The back had also shape flaws, which I fixed up.
A fun fact about this MOC is that I used all the shields of the Bohrok-Kal series on his body armor now! They're scattered on his body like trophies.
The sword in the picture is an elongated version of Sonic Striker which I haven't uploaded yet. Nothing special, but in case you wich to see more of it, just write it in the comments.


The Creation:

Byorak, the blacksmith.
His true origins are unknown, but his homeland probably has once been the island of Stelt, because he's of the same race as Sidorak.
Byorak is part of the Dark Hunters. He rarely takes on any jobs and only if he's interested in the prey he could hunt along on his way. He's not searching for a challenging fight or a treasure to be fund. He wishes to create strong and artistic weapons and armor solely for the purpose of increasing his own skills as blacksmith.
He mostly uses his weapons for himself, because he's often the only one who is able to use them to their full potential, but he occasionally gives one to a worthy warrior who he considers to be better fitted of wielding it. He's not particularly interested in the person he gives the weapon to, but seeing one of his weapon being used to its utmost limits makes him feel proud of his work.
Nevertheless, he is a killer. He won't kill for fun, but he will kill if it needs to be done in order to achieve his wishes, luckily this rarely includes other people, as he often only desires to travel the land and sea in search for materials or strong creatures.

Well, I have no idea how to count in feet, because here in germany we count in meter. But after googeling around, I'd say Byorak isn't that big ^^
Only one and a halve feet or two feet at most I'd say :)

This guy is ginormous! His arms put those on my fire lord (not uploaded yet) to shame.

I noticed when looking over the previous versions that his claw switched arms (right arm in ver. 1.0-3.0, changed to left ver. 3.2), was there any particular reason for this?

This is great. The most obvious improvement is in the photography, but the model itself is also bettered. I'd agree that the removal of the Ehlek parts are an improvement, and the sword is very cool; the hand he grasps it with is also an improvement over the previous iteration. The new legs look markedly better, especially from the back, where they looked weak before. And since I haven't commented on the previous Byorak, I'll just add that the Keelerak bodies as armor are a clever application of a hard-to-use piece. One thing that's hard to tell in this picture is if his neck looks better than the previous version, or if it's just the photography; although since the earlier pictures where the thinness of the neck looked odd were of mediocre quality, I suppose the real question is how the neck looks in person.
