Reflections and Predictions
I'll start by talking about a topic we're all familiar with: technology.
Now, I don't know about you, but I'm quite happy with technology these days. My computer does everything that I want it to do, at a pretty good speed; my Dad has a fancy camera, but more importantly, he lets me use it; then there's various other gadgets of the 21st century, like 3D TVs and smartphones, and they're all pretty awesome.
And yet, it is often the case that we look back into the past, at, say, my parents' generation. They didn't have the luxury of computers, their cameras relied on film instead of pixels, and things like 3D were unheard of. Compared to our current living standards today, it's easy to think that life was 'hard' back then - but they lived through it quite happily. Perhaps, while they were writing letters instead of texts, they felt grateful that they had a postage system at all. In fact, they probably felt the same way as I do now: "Wow, we have this fancy new stuff like trams. It must've

THE Zombie Survival Guide
*This part is for newbies. Skip down to the dashes if you already know this stuff.*
Okay, so first of all, a zombie is a reanimated corpse that lurches around looking for human flesh. Different breeds may be reasoned with, or even "cured" back to the original personality. However, the most typical zombies:
-Are incoherent. They will not be reasoned with or threatened.
-They don't sleep.
-They seem to like brains, but most will settle for a nice hunk of your flesh.
-The come in different speeds, from crawling to shambling to running. Most are shambling along at a slow slow walk.
-They do not drown or asphyxiate.
-Some will burn easily while others will not burn at all.
-Most zombies will "die" from severe damage to the head.
-It is said they are attracted by sound, but this varies.
-VERY IMPORTANT: The most dangerous thing about zombies is that if they bite you and you die before your brain is destroyed, you will come back to life as ANOTHER ZOMBIE. That's how they spread their numbers

Akara0820's Profile Picture
Aaron Tran
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United States
I'm known as Akara the Great on MOCpages and Akara0820 on YouTube. I've also had contact with Lego at very young age (Duplo)
  • Listening to: The Noise From Tapping on a Keyboard
  • Reading: Torn
  • Watching: History Channel
  • Playing: Minecraft Pocket Edition
  • Eating: Nothing
  • Drinking: Water
For the first ten people who answer this journal, I will put their avatar and the deviation I most like from their gallery in this post.

If you answer, you must do the same in your journal, putting the tagger in the first place. The main idea for this is to not get free publicity, but to spread art around for everybody!

1. :iconwolfbossx: :thumb283210369: For the overall build, concept, and for that pose.

2. :iconahollowperson: :thumb280750452: It looks cool, problem?

3. :iconmosquitobite4246: Project Future History: IMPERIUM by MosquitoBite4246 Leaith was a better MOC, but unfortunately he wasn't posted.

4. :icontoaatraks: :thumb254744858: In my opinion the start for a great age of MOCing for him. And have you seen the head?

5. :iconzogtheangrychipmunk: :thumb209624481: Although there are plenty of gaps and the system plates don't flow, the legs are what sold to me.

6. :iconmana-ramp-matoran: Bionicle MOC Midori+skyspeeder by Mana-Ramp-Matoran Vehicles in my opinion are hard go make, and he has executed it excellently. Both the toa and the vehicle go well together.

7. :iconshadow-architect: Enias, the Makuta by Shadow-Architect After looking through his gallery I could only find 3 submissions, 2 of them actually being MOCs. Out of the two, I like this more. (and that mask!)
