[font="Palatino;"]Oh man, I really like this. It's almost like a cross between BIONICLE and Hero Factory, style-wise ... I could truly see this as a set, complete with new molds. The lower arms seem radically different from each other ... I take it that it's because of the angle there and not a stylistic choice?[/font]
The asymmetry was intentional; she was supposed to slightly resemble a Toa Mata (The ones with single tools, such as Lewa, Kopaka, and Tahu). I also had the idea in my head that 'created' Toa (like the Mata, Orde, and presumably most of Lesovikk's team), were intended by the Great Beings/Artakha to use certain tools, and their armor would reflect that. But I can see how it looks kind of odd, now.
Very cool. The style somewhat reminds me of the Flash art used in the first few years of BIONICLE's run, and the way you translated the set-wise Mata body into a more "realistic" form looks nice. The mask and gear looks simple and functional, exactly how I like it.
I actually wasn't consciously trying to evoke the flash stuff, until midway through when I looked at it and went 'wait a minute...'. Funny how that works out.
Thank you to everyone who has replied so far.
