Bionicle MOC: Rhotuka Tiger Rahi by 3rdeye88

The rating system is better for paintings/drawings but not so much for Lego. Impact and technique are useful but vision and originality...

Bionicle Trike by retinence
Bionicle Trike
This was made quickly at Brickfair NJ.  It was made with a very limited selection of parts including the new 2015 Bionicle masks.

Protoman

This is Protoman from Megaman. It will be displayed at Brickfair NJ this weekend. It has been my favorite MOC to build in a very long time. He stands around 13 inches tall.

 

If you're interested in a commission, email me at Retinence@gmail.com

Commission: Final Fantasy Garuda by retinence
Commission: Final Fantasy Garuda
This is Garuda from Final Fantasy XIV.  This is the second Final Fantasy commission.  I believe she is a harpy type boss.  I really like how this came out. When I started I didn't think I could be as accurate as this with system bricks.  Nor did I imagine that I could make those wings without a ton of support.  She exceeded all my expectations.  

I will be attending Brickfair NJ.  I have a surprise MOC I'm unveiling there.

Miqo'te by retinence
Miqo'te

Miqo'te is a race in Final Fantasy XIV. At least I think. Please correct me if I'm wrong. This is a commission, so I only saw the character model.

I started this model by following Lego Dou Moko's (www.flickr.com/photos/legodoum… character builds, then I branched off to make it my own way. This took a while to make as I had to learn a lot of new ways to build. I used a small technic skeleton to hold it together. Other than that, mostly everything is system parts.

I have another Final Fantasy MOC that goes with this but it's not finished yet. It will be finished by Brickfair NJ in November.

I'm in love with your work, you make great use of Bionicle and Technic :) Love how you've made the characters flow, like they've been captured in motion. Great stuff.

I have a question for you... Would you be willing to give constructive criticism on my MOC?

retinence Featured By Owner May 15, 2014
No.  I'm too harsh and your skill isn't high enough yet.  Other builders would be better suited to give you the constructive criticism you're looking for.

who do you recommend I ask? 3rdeye88 said it wasnt GOOD, but the fact that i'm repurposing parts and using them as something they arent intended to be used for is a step in the right direction.
