My entry for the final round of BMC 2014 (Theme: Character from your/a favourite video game/tv show/comic book/etc).
About this creation
Name: Magitek Armour
From: Final Fantasy VI (1994)
Description: Magitek Armor (魔導アーマー, Madō Āmā?) is a technological device in Final Fantasy VI. It is a mechanical weapon employed by the Gestahlian Empire, able to fire beams of magical energy through the Empire's Magitek technology.
(Description from FF Wiki)
So yeah. This is my version of the Magitek Armour. I combined the more clunky, industrial, steampunkish arm-claws, legs and stewm chimneys from the in-game sprite, as well as the sleeker, more organic shaping and humanoid head - as well as the colour scheme - from Yoshitaka Amano's concept art (see title pic).
I was pretty stumped on feasible builds for this round until this little guy fell out of a tablescrap.
To me it looks a bit like a rahi, but for the scale that you built it in, I think you did a pretty good job. You got many of the details of the referenced armor. I'll give it a 6.5. good luck with the other judges.
Even though it resembles the 2 pieces of source material, I have to say it's a bit of an underwhelming entry. I would have liked to see it look more like the one you posted as the main picture to the topic. That being said, it's undeniably a faithful representation of the reference, so you get a 6 from me. Good luck with the other judges! :D
