My guess is that Piras is like the enforcer for the higher order lawmakers, or something like that. Much like Ultra Magnus in TF: MTMTE, he'll be the "Duly Appointed Enforcer of the (insert law/act here)".

For all we know, he could be a villain in a whole different way. Maybe he will end up supporting a government that shows the Matoran some love on the outside, but the Toa Novus find out that the inner workings of the government really hate the Matoran and are using the Toa Miro as puppets.

 

Either way, I know this is going to be good.

He looks way, way different. Clearly more threatening...and also more monochromatic.

How bout this?

I'd say Venti's seen an even bigger change since he first became a Toa. Dang, huh?

Looking back through your old Artwork topic and comparing the old profile of Venti (From who knows how long ago) to this, I'd have to say you've improved a lot from then, with him having a more sleek, primal look than his previous iteration. I especially like his wings, claws, and armour details. In fact, this pic may be a new favorite of mine.

 

Also, Is it me, or does he look a lot more feminine than last time?

Random thought, but are the Mechanicles related to the Vahki in any way?

Eh... he's just really gangly. Now that I look back, though, the legs are pretty misleading. My original thought process was "slim down everything EXCEPT the thighs. They need to be muscular so he can take off."

He looks pretty birdlike and threatening. Could pass as an animalistic Makuta actually. Sees he shares in the monochromatic theme of the new Toa Miro. It works, for them.

Their colours have certainly become a lot darker and less vibrant. Their new, more aggressive appearance definitely hints at what their new purpose is. Looking forward to seeing the rest of them in their new appearances.

Here's another one.

 

unda_poster_by_nickinamerica-d97v6wc.jpg

 

Dang, huh? This might actually be the biggest departure from a Toa Miro's previous self, so far.

Is he telling us to look away because he's ashamed, or is it something else?

Previously, I tried to make him stand out by giving him dark or Metru blue "skin" with much brighter armor layered over it. That's kind of Imber's thing now, though, so to create a contrast between the two Toa of water, I've switched Unda's colors around, making his armor dark, with only glimpses of his former, brighter self showing through the cracks.

 

That's it for today. I hope you aren't getting tired of these, cause there's four more to go.

He looks definitely bulkier and like the others, more monochromatic and threatening. I'd say this one's not as good as the previous ones though. Could just be my taste in design.

Too many fins? I tried to keep his overall design pretty simple, to make him streamlined and aquadynamic. I may've overdone it in some other areas.

 

Also, he has webbed hands, now.

Here's Toa Ledas' revamp! This one was tricky, but I think it paid off.

toa_ledas_poster_finished_by_nickinameri

 

Indeed.

 

Somehow, this guy's managed to become even creepier.

So yeah, his armor's design is pretty simple, but his whole gimmick is being able to reinforce himself with plating made of ice. If this were a toy, he'd have asymmetrical armor, though we're sure to see him in a "full blown" mode at some point in the story.

 

That's it for today. As always, feedback is appreciated.

I like the near-featureless mask, it sorta adds to the unsettling vibe he already has. I like the Idea of the self-forming Ice armour. Kind of reminds me of a boss in Monster hunter.

 

The only gripe I have is that the Shield looks a little flat. Maybe it's due to it's unconventional shape, I dunno.

 

Suppose I'd also talk about Unda here as well, as I forgot to the other day. I like his aquatic look, it really makes him look like a guardian of the deep. My only gripe on this one is that I think you kind of went overboard with the shading, resulting in his extremities being pitch black. Then again, That was probably intentional, as to keep the mysteriousness theme going throughout the Miro.

Surely nothing could go wrong with an underground vault that is made to keep people away from nuclear war. Right?

Now that looks cool. That's my favorite one so far. The face really gives a soulless vibe.
