Tuhua, Toa of Obsidian (My Bio SM)
Hey guys! I'm back with another creation, my new Bionicle self-moc!
About this creation
Name: Tuhua (To-hoo-ah)
Gender: Male
Race: Toa
Element: Obsidian
Bio: (None currently, sorry. Maybe someday...)


Before I get into full body shots and random poses, as usual, here are some close-ups.

The front and back of his legs.

His torso.

His head, a black Gresh mask. (I painted it myself)

His left arm, with a gun.

His right arm, with a flip-out sword. (Man, I sure use flip-out swords and arm cannons a lot on my mocs.)

With the sword extended.

Also, here's his back. Pretty clean IMO.

Size comparison with Stinger XL. Eeesh, my "XL" is short.

And with Vanaria... She looks like a midget compared to him lol.

Now for the usual random and totally pointless poses...




Tuhua: Haha, sorry Anaharath. Cya later guys. Thanks for checking me out!
*********
(I realize, last creation I said I'd be posting a Transformer next... Just remembered that... sorry guys lol.)
Thanks for looking at my creation! Constructive criticism is welcome. :)
'Till next post!

Quoting Yuri Fassio The color distribution on this guy is AMAZING. Absolutely love how you concentrated the trans blue on the joints.
Thanks man! Glad you like it! :D

Quoting Sean /EMMSixteenA4 Honestly, you need to rework the frame of the leg in order to add more armour to the sides to bulk it out. Same goes for the torso and arms - that's the most conventional fix, at least.
Ah. Yeah, I've already reworked the torso, but I'll do the rest now. Thanks again for the advice. :)

Quoting Sean /EMMSixteenA4 Stellar mask paintjob. You dropped the ball on two fronts: proportions, and textures. The MOC's armour doesn't have an sort of flow. There are jagged bits everywhere and they don't really fit - and yeah, they're fragments of obsidian, I guess? But it doesn't look great. Also, the proportions are really lanky. Garett's Syndrome, it used to be called, when the MOC is skinny and lanky but too humanoid to make it look like a style choice - it's just bad proportioning and never looks great. At any rate, the MOC has a lot of potential and that mask is just beautiful. Hope I helped.
Thanks for the feedback! :D Yeah, I'm working on making him less lanky and stuff. What would you suggest I do to make the armor flow better?

Nice work here Daniel! Do I see a Toa team coming along? Anyways, as the others mentioned, he does look a bit thin at the waist and on his legs. Absolutely BRILLIANT work with the mask BTW.

Thanks! I've been considering it. Yeah, I've actually got a new torso built already. Aw, thanks. :D

Quoting Grand Admiral Thrawn Very impressive build, I like the fact how the sword flips out. That's a neat idea.
Thanks! :D

Quoting Ivan Toa of Ingenuity One of my favourite mocs to date! (behind Neox and Kawu)The only critique is the back of the legs. - Ivan :) P.S. How are you use armor shells so well?
Aw, thank you. :) Yeah, unfortunately I can't armor them up any more without limiting how far his legs can bend. Dunno, I wouldn't say I use them that well, but I guess it's maybe because I grew up with CCBS and armor shells.

Quoting Wertman 8 Very nice- I like what you did with the shoulder design and the legs- he's very sleek and smoothly armoured- except for that waist. Yeah I know, you've gotten this critique from pretty much everyone, but it's a poignant one- the rigid, rectangular shape with all the exposed Technic really spoils what is otherwise a really slick MOC. The colour scheme works really well, and the Gresh helmet looks great in black! He's very tall, isn't he? Great MOC, though I think Stinger will always be your true avatar- speaking of which, I like the new buddy icon! :P
Thanks! Yep, like I've said, I'm definitely gonna work on it. Yeah, I think he will. And really, that's what I want. I've always liked HF just a bit more than Bionicle. I mean, that's what I grew up with. Haha, thank you. :D

Quoting Justin Li That mask is sexy in black. The torso looks a little funny.
Haha, yes it is, yes it is. Yeah, I need to work on it. My Moc's torso's always need work lol.

Quoting NewDrewBuilder1992 /// And I thought I gave my masks a radical paint job LOL. In all seriousness, I love the moc, the transparent blue complements the concrete black and gunmetal. I love the sword too. This MOC looks pretty good.
Lol. Thanks man! :D

Quoting High Emperor Duckie AWESOME!!! Anaharath: looks like somebody's gonna die... EDIT: sorry this was so short, I was trying to get first comment. I agree the torso's pretty thin, perhaps a tad too tall...
Tuhua: Yeah, you. Me: (:P) Thanks Duckie :D Yeah, I need to work on his torso.

Quoting Solias Toa of Earth PAINTED MASK!!!!! MAY THE FLEAS OF A THOUSAND CAMELS INVADE YOUR ARMPITS! ....JK. He seems somewhat lanky and thin, I think it's mostly in the waist and legs, it's fine though I do like the look of the lower legs a lot and I'm loving that sword thingamajigger!
Lol. Yeah, his waist isn't the best. Thanks! :D
