About this creation
I actually got it done on time. W00T.

So I'm facing Toa Karda, and our category was witch doctor-y-thing. I made a personal mix of African, and Aztec inspired designs. I was actually really happy with it.

Link to the Contest.




Overview of the MOC.












Torso detail.

Back.



Back detail, you can see his potion and his ceremonial knife.

Using his hand of the gods.


















Comparison with Mags.






The end.



Creator's Comments: Been busy. Had fun with this one. Really like how it came out too. That's about it that I have to say. I'll let this one stand on it's own and see how it goes.


EDIT: Crap. Forgot to mention that the design for the earrings and anklets belongs to Spencer (Coconut Fanatic). I stole his halo design and modified it. Love the way it worked.

The styling done here is impeccable Gale, all the ornaments and decorations fit the character amazingly. My favorite bits are the skirt, the ear rings, and I'm just noticing this now, the consistent color scheme. I realize that if you take off all the decorations and things he would be a solid red, black and yellow, like the original Karda. I can see his frame underneath everything too, so it's easily definable as not being part of him. What I don't like is the forearms, I think that you could have still used the HF bone and armor, just covered the inside with a tire or something, but that's my only complaint. And thanks for the recognition on the ear ring design, though I'm sure it's been used before.

Quoting [ Chro ] In the next round, you won't have to worry about beating people, since you'll do so quite easily, I suspect
I'm not so sure about that. Anyone I might come up against next round is likely to smite me.

Quoting Steve The Squid This is really incredible, I have a hard time seeing this lose; you really used the yellow to your advantage, and the texture is spot-on!
Thanks Gray :)
Quoting Steve The Squid Alex is forfeiting, so you get another bye... not that I think you needed it :D Plus you made a great moc this round, I love it! No downsides here!
As much as I like the free passes, I'd still like to move on by actually winning XD

Quoting L.A. Miranda In the first picture with Maggs he scared me ;~; Amazing work in this one, love specially the lack of "titaness": I missed your small-scale MOCs! Love the pendant, a great and very effective work; the head decorations, the skirt, the... All the details, I love them! A lot of interesting techniques in this MOC, I would like to mention specially the ones using the Exo-Force robot arms and Savage Planet claws. My only complain would be the exposed HF lower arm, I think It would work better shortening it or adding at least a small System plate to cover the holes. Maybe it's just me, I never liked those gaps too much =P Magnificent work dear, Toa Era is in trouble! Good luck, dear! <3
Thanks L.A. Glad you like him. And by the by, I'll get around to commenting on yours and Spencer's MOCs from the MOC-off at some point, I promise XD
