"Humanized" Lhikan & Nokama (In Progress)

Recommended Posts

To quote Jack Krauser from Resident Evil 4, "Been a long time, comrade."

 

Last time I was on BZP was the day it crashed, and that was the last time I was inspired to draw Bionicle, until recently that is.

 

The other night, I was suddenly inspired (at 2:30am nonetheless) to finally draw the Lhikan and the Toa Metru. While I have costume sketches for the rest of the lot, I won't post them until they are at least colored with flats.

 

Their getups are inspired by a crossover of steam punk fashion, Thor, and their respective professions (the Toa Metru I mean).

Nice. I like the little detailing that links them to the Bionicle universe, like the Kanoka designs and the Bionicle "L" on Lhikan's belt. Their weapons also look cool; fitting for a human user but still recognizable for the character. And somehow, I really like Nokama's glasses! Nice job!

Something about Nokama having reddish/orange hair shows a more fitting identity for her than the usual blonde I see for human toa of water. Not to mention it fits with her natural set colour scheme.

It's nice to see some of your art again - and you've definitely improved a lot. I really like the realistic anatomy you've given them, particularly Nokama. She looks just awesome.

 

There's only something a bit odd about her arms, I think it's the way the elbows are turned; can't exactly pinpoint it, though.

 

Other than that, I think they both really reflect their personalities in their poses, and that's great. Also a huge fan of the shading on Lhikan. :3

Awesome work, keep it up! ^^

Ah yes, thank you! I try to always work in little "easter eggs" because they make me feel like I've been paying attention. Much appreciated!

I considered using blonde, since I'm trying to create a pattern of characteristics (a variety of them, from either facial shape, or personality traits, eye-color, etc) between these new designs and my old Toa Nuva Designs (seen here) but a reddish hair worked for me here.

Yep, I am always terrible at elbows, consistently terrible .

 

Anyway, check back top to see how Nokama has been finished :)

BIONICLE: 's Kitchen.

 

With Lhikan as Gordon Ramsay.

 

100% legit.

 

Apart from that, quite good. Good proportions. Like his clothing.

 

Nokama... I will just not comment in that.

Lhikan as Gordon Ramsey? Is that a good thing? He actually intentionally vaguely resembles Callum Keith Rennies (from Battlestar Galactica), which is my headcannon for live-action HB.

 

As for Nokama, I assume you do not like my interpretation, which is fine. We all picture the characters differently. I appreciate the comments nonetheless :)

Not quite as good as your human Vakama, but still pretty dayum awesome. Especially Lhikan's head. You interpretation of Nokama has "teacher" written all over it, which I find quite amusing. She looks like she's about to fall over, though. On a side note, Lhikan's arms are shaved (or burnt off from using his powers). Is it because Thor has shaved arms? Not that I mind though. It certainly contributes to that unnatural feel of Metru Nui and bionicle in general.

Thanks! Nokama's off-balance stance may be due to the fact that I didn't take the weapons into account when I drew the pose, so they're off-setting her weight visually. I dunno.

 

And Lhikan has arm hair, it's light, but it's there ;)

*squints eyes* I see, it's hardly there, but there. Nevermind. Great, hairy job on Lhikan. :1: :0: out of :1: :0:

Lhikan looks every bit like I imagined he would as a human. The pose is especially Lhikan-esque (if that makes sense) and really grounds it back to the original character.

 

He also kinda' reminds me of a Power Ranger in civilian form, not that that's a bad thing.
