Welcome to my :devart: profile page :wave:
Most of you know that I am a Bionicle MOCer
For those of you that don't, I make sculptures
of various things using legos, and more
specifically Bionicle/Hero Factor parts.
Though I do use regular legos ligh you
Might be familiar with. The Term MOC
is an acrynym that stands for
My Own Creation.
This is a term we creators of original lego
sculptres universally(mostly) use as a term
for anything made by us and not officially
designed by lego or lego engineers.
So that's that.
I am also a musician. I play bass, drums
and a little bit of keybard and guitar
If you want to know more about that stuf
just ask me, and feelf free to ask me about
most anything you're curious about, or comment
on my Deviations or journals.
Overall I'm pretty friendly, unless given a reason
not to be. :) I hope to hear from you.

Thank you to anyone and everyone for favorites,
comments and watches.:iconthankyousignplz:

During Bricks By The Bay 2018 The fellows from Beyond The Brick liked my MOC enough to interview me. And to say that it was the highlight of the convention for the year is an absolute understatement.

Well I guess that's another box checked off on the list of cool things that can happen to Lego builders happening to me.

I also just wanna say thank you to everyone who's supported me through likes, faves, comments, follows, etc.

ATTENTION DIGITAL ARTISTS!!!
I just read this really interesting blog post by JoeSlucher who is a professional artist who does artwork for Magic: The Gathering. And I really think you all should read it if you do artwork digitally.

Here's his journal with a link to that post. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE give it a read. There's some genuinely important insight in there.

Welcome to my Page.

Welcome and Thank You
Hello there, thank you for visiting my Deviantpage. If you've favorited or added me to your :+devwatch: then allow me to say thank you.

Thank you! I could say the same to you in fact. A super hero in tights with big muscles that's also a plague doctor? That's pretty neat.

Thank you! I like your gallery because I used to play with Legos all the time. I had quite a bit of Bionicles. So this takes me right back to 2008, when I was just in second grade.

My style is ment to be sort of break the mold that modern cartoons/ comics have. You see, there is a lack a very masculine men in anime, American cartoons, etc. (Also Plague Doctors, haha). Speaking of which, there are really no plague doctor superheros. For that reason, my plague doctor is simply named The Plague Doctor. Seeing how there are are no other ones, why not make him the one and only Plague Doctor?

Oh yeah, and he is JACKED!

That holds true for a lot of us. I got my first lego when I was 2, and I just never gave it up. So that's 28 years of playing with lego and being creative with it. But a lot of builders who work with lego as a medium were in your shoes. They just kept at it and made it their medium of choice, or is a secondary medium. A lot of Lego builders draw or do art in some other fashion.

I don't think that's entirely true. I think there's so many things to pay attention to now, thanks to the internet, its not entirely obvious where the masculine characters are. But there is indeed a pushback against masculinity in American culture right now. There's no denying that.

There's yet to be a really popular IP that features plague doctors. Assassin's Creed featured them sure, but they weren't the focus. My story and characters isn't super hero based, but they are definitely plague doctors, and they're the focus of the story.
Bionicle MOC: Matteo by Mana-Ramp-Matoran   Comissioned Art: Matteo By LalaVolpe. by Mana-Ramp-Matoran   Attack from above. by Mana-Ramp-Matoran

Matteo is my main character. Long story short, he's immortal, basically has captain america level strength and speed, and one gimmick thats basically Wolverine's claws, crossed with Ezio's wrist blades, and that's about it. I've tried not to make him OP as a character. Though his talents are more that he's kinda good at the most random things, like sewing, or lock picking. Cause when you are ageless, you get bored, and learn stuff. :XD:

Sure that works if your plague doctor is the only one in your universe, but what happens when more crop up, or like the drawing you did, its a cross over with another's doc?  Does your guy have any abilities?

Well then, make more awesome artwork that I'll just fall in love with and have to comment on!

You could

A. Draw more steampunk stuff. Steam Icon Punk emote

B. Anything dark and creepy. mini woooo 

C. ROBOTS!!! Robot Walk

D. Dunno if you've noticed, but plague doctors are kinda my thing. If you drew one of those. I think I'd have to comment, favorite at least twice, and share it with the whole world.

I mean, you don't have to do any of these things. You should definitely draw what you wanna draw, but these suggestions would be the best way to get comments from me. Jusssayin' :giggle:

But more importantly I can't wait to see more art from YOU! :eager:

:lmao:

You should set reminders on your calendar. I'm starting to do that with a lot of you guys. I think what I'm gonna do is start making MOCs for people who's birthdays I want to commemorate, and then just stuff em somewhere and wait to post them. I've been neglecting friends Birthdays for too long. I'm terrible. :XD:

Well thanks for the photo, and the laugh.

The problems are 1) I never remember to check the calendar and 2) I don't usually realize which day it is today (1 & 2 could be solved just by solving 1 though). If something important comes the next days I just put a post-it on my PC as a daily reminder =P It's actually easier to check the calendar, I know, but it's like why I answer people and comment pictures too late, it's just because I'm a lazy idiot xD

:XD: Well that's alright. I'm a lazy idiot to. I wait until the week its someone's birthday, see the notifcation here on DA and go "CRAP!" And I either try and hastily put together something, or I just forget about it and leave a stupid message. Next year I want to get better at making things for people's birthdays. I have yours, Onuku's and Ohlookitsanartist's birthdays put down in my PC's callender and is synced with my phone, so I'll get a reminder.
