Bionicle MOC - Kuikari 1.3 - Main deviation by Alex-Darkrai Bionicle MOC - Kuikari 1.3 - Main deviation by Alex-Darkrai
Here're her detail shots:

Detail shot version 1.0
Detail shot version 1.3

Improvements of 1.2:
I basically only changed the things I got Critique for; her ankles and her upper arms, so I'll skip on back and side views, because they're still the same.
I really think she looks better know, her overall style truly improved through those slight changes.

Improvements of 1.3:
I pretty much redid her whole upper legs and did some slight changes on her lower legs in order to match them up with the upper legs.
Here are the three basic reasons for those changes:
- to make her taller and correct the proportions
- to improve the shape and the flow of her hip section
- to improve the color distribution on her legs

I think I was able to improve the flow on her hip section a lot, I also improved her ass in order to make it look more natural.
The longer legs make her ankles look more proportional now as well. I removed all the silver from legs, except the ankles, because I wanted her legs to be plain gunmetal grey. That may be too much now, but I really like that clean color distribution.

The ankles before gave the MOC a lot of grace, it really looked feminine, but this seems a bit much.

I agree that the ankles were too thin but I think they were only marginally too thin. The rims work but I feel they only needed a slight thickening from what you had before. I think its just a matter of preference.

Then I'm not sure what you did with the upper arms, they look the same. :P

Yeah, it's basically just preference, but I really think the ankles are better now.
My problem with th upper arms was that their innner sides looked to thin in the fron view picture, so I placed a few more parts there and now it's the way I wanted it.
Bulking up the arms even more would mess up the proportions which I like on her.

Yeah. I personally think its too much, but that's just me. If you like it, that's all that really matters.

Ah yeah, Sometimes just a small addition can really fix everything. Matteo is very much like that. I did a little system inclusion, and it really filled out his torso better and shaped his calves a lot better.

Wonderful~! :clap:

I'd say my favourite part is how you've used masks for more than just the head!
It's a risky concept (because it could've easily looked like a bunch of heads growing out
of your character), but by having them the same tone of grey, you've managed to keep
the eyes from not paying attention to this. And thus, you've created a masterpiece! :aww:
