Bionicle MOC: Sir Richard Alastair by 3rdeye88 Bionicle MOC: Sir Richard Alastair by 3rdeye88
:woohoo: ANOTHER PLAGUE DOCTOR, YAUS!!! :la::dance: I've wanted to do this for a while. I'd like to dedicate this MOC to my good friend :iconacyrotin: for all the wonderful things she's done that includes Matteo. :heartL I'm sorry this isn't one of your characters, but this one goes out to you. :)

About the MOC
I can't believe it, I managed to get him knocked out in a single morning. I got up at 7:00 and had him finished by about 3. The rest of the day was post production(photos, editing, deviation/on the spot bio writing). It started with me trying to figure out how to do another plague doctor mask, something I've been contemplating for the longest damned time, then I came across the Metus Mask(something I forgot I had because it was given to me by ~wolfbossx a while ago), then from there I just started sticking "beaks" on him and the tail tip had the right shape. :meow: So a second plague doctor was born. Another accomplishment I managed was to give him(er well his mask) a mustache. I know many have beat me to the punch, most notably *Rahiden with Endeavor/Toxic. The opportunity presented itself so I went for it. I think it gives him a lot of extra personality.

Sir Richard Alastair is a fictional character and based on no real person, if your name is Richard Alastair it is completely a coincidence and should not feel flattered because my MOC was not named after you. :nana:
While I don't have a bunch of details figured out(this will probably come with the help of Acy), but I do know that Sir Richard is English(if that wasn't painfully obvious already), that he's a master in fisticuffs, something sorta like this! He is an ally of Matteo's, but I'm not sure which era of Matteo's long life he would be in, I'm thinking sometime after Witching Hour. But that's up for debate.

C&C much appreciated. :D

Okay, with more views in mind, this MOC is for sure more unique and interesting with its colourscheme, different body style than the typical and the head detail. First off, congrats on another Plague Doctor, we don't have enough of those. The aristocratic appearance is rather uncanny since pretty much anyone could be a plague doctor back in the day. I do feel though, that the upper arms should contain a few more traces of white to make a more complete sleeve appearance. I find that this MOC's body is different as it is more of a "fat" person MOC for once which is seldmonly done but it works here pretty well with the thinner limbs to make it look a lot more authentic.

eh, this one is simple, and although it started with a good vision, i dont think speed mocing is your field of expertise.

originality: ive seen almost the exact same arms before, the hands are nothing new, and the legs are just bad; too simple and not really fitting

technique: the head and torso could have been better; the pelvis is wide, and simple, and the head doesnt really make me think "plague doctor" more like: damn, whats goin on with yo nose?

impact: like a train; one of your worst mocs you've made and looks like you need more practice with speed mocing.

to sum things up, at least fix the legs and pelvis, they kinda screw with the mocs "look"

I said, I hope you haven't disassemble him. and there is a link to SCP-049, AKA Plague Doctor.

Oh I see. I saw it was a plague doctor but didn't understand why you linked it. But no, Sir Richard is still together. I haven't disassembled him. :D

Thanks. It would be nice, if I could see him in a Bionicle MOCery comic.

I should include more of my characters in BM. I just don't know what to do to have them there.

A sudden plague? Would a disease help the situation? BTW how do you make these comics?
