Ten Years

Posted by Akaku: Master of Flight , Jan 12 2018 · 49 views

Well, todays the day, for another few minutes anyways. My BZPower account is now over a decade old! :D

It's crazy to think I've been on here this long. Granted, I've been surfing here much longer, since the year BZPower was advertised back on Lego.com during the Metru-nui days, it was right before the Hordika came out I believe. I remember finding Lady Kopaka's art, Roa Mc Toa's MOC's and The Editorialist's comics over the years, and getting absolutely hooked on the site because of them. I also remember the whole Vahki-power April fools fiasco, since it happened right when I had to get stitches from a deep cut I got going sledding down a jump made of ice. What fun!

I also remember managing to make an account on here briefly, only for my first and only post to be something along the lines of 'tahu sucks', which quickly followed by me either forgetting the password or getting temp banned, and unable to create a new account until after my parents switched internet providers several years later; I was not a very smart child :P

And while all of that was well and good, it was this account, that I made back in January 11th 2008, that this post is of course all about. Thanks to it I've met several lifelong friends and of course my lovely fiancé (Inferna Firesword on here!), all of which I wouldn't trade the world for. And thanks again to everyone who congratulated us on the engagement, by the way! :)

It's been a long, fun and bumpy ride. from the sprite comics I did with Fusion X Dylan, the co-authoring I did for Toa Zero's, the hand drawn comics I made and the ones i drew with Taka Nuvia, the stories and prank wars that went on with my fellow Toa Seneca, the RPG's I took part of with so many others, and finally the semi-recent things ive done with Zahaki, Zippy, Itaki and Onaku, I'll never forget all the hilarious, awesome and dumb things I did with all of you, not to mention all my countless other friends and the cool folks I met here all along the way, kind enough to support and critique my work I've shown, helping make me a much better artist, and person.

In any case, i'm quickly running out of time to post this on the right day, so ill leave this post off on this note for here. Rest assured though, I plan to make a more proper tribute to this site, and all the awesome people I've met here along the way :)

Have a good night, everyone!

Engaged! ^^

Posted by Akaku: Master of Flight , Aug 16 2017 · 368 views

Today is a wonderful day! I'm up at the cottage with my dearly beloved Lauren (known as Inferna Firesword on here!), and I just proposed to her. She said yes! :D

Crazy to think I'm going to get married to someone I met on this website about nine years ago this month if we remember things correctly :P big thanks to everyone here at BZP who've run the site, as I never would've met her without you :)

Hey Inferna

cabbage, lotn, TC, gogn, fern
Love you :3


(that's right I'm jumping on this fad and there aint nothing ya'll can do about it)


So! Some news. Few days ago I finished page 15 of LoTN, most of those who read the comic have probably already seen it by now, but if your curious you can find it Here :)

Also, me and the group over at Terrible Comics Corp. have been doing some brainstorming and plan formulating moving forward; things kind of got a little out of hand along the way, though. if your interested in our silly shenanigans, have a look over here, more will come soon; be warned though, picture quality is not exactly the goal we have in mind with our endeavors of the comic, hence the name :P

Hmm, what else... Ah yes, my good Friend Zahaki -finally- posted the first page of his comic series, it's looking pretty sweet if you ask me! you can head on down and have a link to it here.

That's all for now! Also, to the guy who owns the blue classic Kanokacar in the parking space behind me, I apologize, this thing is like 30 feet long, has a turning radius of an elevator and goes 0-60 faster then the cursing of an Irishman after he drops a full pint of Guinness. I'll send you the bill.

I've figured it out.

:P

So due to popular demand (and by popular demand I mean by like three people) Terrible comics will be returning soon, so stay tuned :)

Also, I did another page of Legends of Taladi Nui, you can see it over here!

That's about all for now. Oh, also, never mentioned it here before, but I make scale WW2 models from time to time, there's a bunch I'm probably going to finish soon. Anyone interested in seeing them? :P

Requests are finished!

Posted by Akaku: Master of Flight , Feb 18 2017 · 384 views
requests, drawing, cabbage
Requests are all done! Sorry that it took a while this time, decided to put more effort into them then I was originally planning to :)

So, lets get started! I drew them in the order they were requested.

1 - Voltex: Two Protectors
This one was interesting. You may notice this piece has cleaner linework then the rest, mostly because the program decided to crash halfway through, the one time I forgot to save frequently of course. Instead of using a lucky screengrab directly for the coloring (which would reduce the resolution of the piece significantly), I decided to just redo the Lineart from scratch using the screenshot as a guide. all in all I'm pretty happy with how this turned out, despite the fact it took by far the longest of the four requests to draw :P

2 - Taka Nuvia: Herself
This one was a lot of fun. I had some trouble in the beginning, figuring out good poses and how to do a good job of recreating the original piece I drew eight years before, but I think it turned out really well. It's probably the one I'm the happiest with how it turned out of the four pictures requested; Originally Taka was basically just an exact recreation of the reference pictures provided, but I remembered that I was asked to draw her in my style, so I decided to add a few of my own twists to her design :)

3 - Ghidora: Himself, twisted

4 - Pohatu, Uniter of stone: Rekansi
This one came together surprisingly quickly, and had some unusual features in it that made for a particularly unusual draw for me; I usually deal with more dull colors and the underlying gear being a dark grey or black, so this is definitely one of the more unusual and colorful characters (and background to match) that I've drawn; Personally I would've added some brown highlights on the armor to balance out the color of the mask, but I didn't know the characters backstory or anything, if it's not supposed to match the rest of the Matoran or something, so I just did as requested. I'm not a huge fan of drawing Matoran in general, but I think this one turned out pretty well; hopefully he's not too toa-like for your tastes, Pohatu ^^;;

Aaaand that's all for now! Time for me to get back to work on LoTN, I hope you all enjoy how your requests turned out :)


(the pictures here are all in 50% resolution; if you'd like the full size of them, let me know and I'll upload them!)

EDIT: Oh, I should probably mention; ya'll free to use these pictures however you want; you don't need to stick credit to me up next to it, though it would be greatly appreciated :P

The Blogmobile gets a facelift.

Click the picture to see the Full-sized image in all it's glory!

So, just thought I'd let you know I've stayed up working hard on the requests, on the next LoTN page, and giving my Blog a bit of a much needed facelift; Perhaps maybe now I'll finally get one of those mythical 'approvals' I've heard of over the years :P

Now, time for sleep... and then more drawing tomorrow, most likely! :)

More LoTN for your Lotn'ny needs (and taking some requests)

Posted by Akaku: Master of Flight , Feb 11 2017 · 288 views
cabbage, LOTN, requests
Yeeep, that's right.

Finally got off my butt and made a new page for my hand drawn comic series (I remember when that used to be a rare deal around here, but now comics in general seem to be rare :c), you can have a look at it over here! If you have any thoughts and such on the new page, popping a post down over there on that topic would make my day, and guarantee you to be a pretty cool guy(or girl) who doesn't afraid of anything.

In other news, things have been going pretty good for me, I think. Finally got an Anaconda space ship in Elite: Dangerous, and let me tell you, that was... Well, it took a while, that's for sure :P

Not much happening irl for me at the very moment, but a lot of things are going to be changing real soon; I think I've finally built up enough motivation (or at least built up enough anxiety) that I'm ready to take the next important steps with my life, hopefully ones that will leave me living with the woman I love and a Job I like by the end of the year :)

That's about it for now. Also, I'll take four requests if anyone's interested, first come, first serve, starting... now!

1-2 characters (preferably Toa, but I'll do other Bionicles too) per person; You can ask for a specific background, but be I aware I may swap it out for something simpler if I think its going to take me forever :P

The Blogmobile is out of the shop.

That's right! :D

Thanks to B6 (and Dimensioneer behind the scenes from the sounds of things) for helping me sort out Premier membership stuffs; Not sure what went wrong there, but im happy that it got all sorted out :P

Anyways, some news; LoTN is back up and running (with four new pages I've made in the last week, three last night! :)), and im thinking of taking more requests in the near future. Also, I'm most likely going to be at Brickcon again this year, cant wait to meet everyone again c:

Have a good one! And most importantly, if you're hopping on for the ride, DO NOT PRESS THE BIG RED BUTTON.

Activity increasing!

Posted by Akaku: Master of Flight , Feb 25 2016 · 448 views

Drawing more again! Well, truth been told, I've been drawing a lot this entire time, just for my Graphic Novel program I'm enrolled in rather then Bionicles. but instead of using my free time playing video games, my mood has swayed back to that in which I do best; Bionicle Art! =P

So, TC will get proper maintenance again very soon (sorry about that), and I shall resume production of LoTN comics in the near future.

Here's a sneak-peak!

Wait, no, hold on a second...

Here it is!

:P

Also, I may or may not take another round of requests in the near future, so keep your eye's peeled! :)

Hey guys, mobile bzp is so weird! Ill respond to yall's pms once im back on a desktop around this time tommorow. Right now im at calgary international airport, between a connected flight from vancouver to my home in ontario, where ill be visiting my family for the holidays. Quite excited!

So... ive got around 40 minutes to kill, so ill talk about things.

Terrible comics is off to a terrible start, really. But it was to be expected :P hopfully we get less terrible as time goes on! I have faith in us, or at least faith in my fellow authors :)

Lotn is still ongoing. It was put on hold by a wwii comic i was doing for school with just as much time and details put into it, which i cant put here since historically accurate flags and uniforms of a certain country involved probably aren't appropriate here :P

ive learned alot though, certainty a few things already that will help drastically with improving efficiency behind the scenes, but there will also be some noticable improvements in the comic itself. And im still learning more next term, too! :D

anyways the formatting is starting to be weird and buggy in my entry so im going to stop there for now.

Happy holidays, everyone! :)
