So around fourteen months ago I started making 432 characters from the BIONICLE franchise in my somewhat distinctive style. The style I use is almost sprite like, but uses Illustrator to make the particular elements and then put them all together. It was a way to cut having to make the same things over and over from scratch, which is something I’ve never liked doing that much. Immediately when you look at all of this you can see plenty of problems, because the ultimate goal here was quantity over quality. One day I’ll certainly try and improve a number of these, but for now I’m just glad I finished.
Anyway, what I then did was made cards for each of the 432 characters I did, and then randomly placed them on this poster. There is no logic to their placement, which could mean it is more fun to search for the characters you’re interested in. Or not, hence the list below. But anyway, I had a great time making these, and I will probably use all of these for comics and such, making improvements and additions as things go on. So I guess enjoy!
