I guess this moc needs a brief explanation...


I'm sure you're all familiar with the concept of a "selfmoc", a moc which serves as a persona for its creator.  It's a great concept really, though until now I had never been inspired to make one for myself.  Recently, I've had a growing interest in the furry fandom, a creative community based on the concept of anthropomorphic animals.  Furry personas, or fursonas, are very popular among furries.  So I thought it would be fun to take both concepts and combine them. :D


Anyway, yes, this is a moc of myself as a wolf.  I'm quite satisfied with the moc, but as a fursona, it's more of a beginning concept, which I intend to build upon later.  Also, this moc was designed to be both an anthro wolf and normal wolf.  This meant altering the body proportions a bit to accommodate both forms, but I believe the results were worth it.


That's all. Looking forward to your feedback. Love y'all. :3

Wow, what a nice moc! I definitely commend your integration of System parts for detailing!
Those claws are certainly nice and feel fitting to the style, and that head is quite wonderfully sculpted in the form of a wolf.
Lots of tiny plastic bits in tiny plastic bags!

It makes me happy to see him finished :D Really great detailing, especially on the paws/hands!

wow that is pretty cool. I like it standing but I think it looks a lot better crawling.

Very nifty work!

I like how you used elements from the four building styles (System, Technic, Bionicle, and Hero Factory) to make such a filled in model. I also like how it has the ability to go between bipedal and quadruped forms.  

The only thing I'm a bit iffy on is the tail. It looks fine, but I worry the way it's been built might cause stress / damage on the pieces?

Aye, I'm very glad to have finally completed it too. :3  I'm also quite fond of the paws. That was where the moc originally started.  I was messing around with parts when I realized I could make a paw that resembled both a foot and a hand, and it all kinda flowed from there.

Seems like most people prefer the quad form more. I guess that makes sense, as it looks a bit more consistent that way.  Personally I have no preference. I like it both ways. c:

Actually, the connection on the tail is pretty lose (perhaps too loose, the axles are kinda falling out right now x_x), so there's very little stress on the sockets.  If you were to turn the beam inside the socket a lot (and I mean a LOT), you could risk breaking them, but it would take a significant amount of force, and you probably wouldn't even need to turn it that far.  It's actually a pretty good technique IMO; it's worth giving a shot (I recommend using liftarms instead of beams though, to avoid axles falling out).
