hmm, "bionicle" and "manga" haven't had the best relationship in the past, but looking in here, i can say you have totally pulled it off.

 

the tahu is sleek and nicely stylized, (though the flow is kinda interrupted by that awkwardly long piston on the leg, in my opinion. :0)

 

anyway, good job here, you seem to have a unique look and a great grip on proportion and posing, and i can easily see great things rising from this style. :u

Thanks

I have been sketching BIONICLE in Manga style for a while offsite, and yeah its reaaaaally hard to make something like BIONICLE work in a Manga while keeping the biomechanical theme XD. Anyway, thanks and yeah, I'll admit that with Tahu I spent most of the sketching with the legs, and they don't look as perfect as the upper half, but yeah it looks good for what is shown XD


UPDATE: New pieces of Art!


Edit: Double post merged.

Yay, more bionicle anime fanart. You've got a nice edgy-sketchy feel to you drawings. My favorites are Takua, Nuparu and Matau. Tahu lacks some serious fire, though. :burnmad:

I decided to tolerate the human-bionicle morphs for a while, until I ran across your gorgeous Zaktan.

 

While I don't like the lizard-like tail that much, I think you captured Zaktan as realistic, I'll be it anime, as possible.

 

Well done.

Both Zaktann and Turaga Vakama are amazing. I am especially fond of the latter because you're breaking away from the archetypical face you use for many of the characters, yet still stay true to your art style. :3

 

And Zaktann is simply gorgeous. The face is incredibly well drawn, and looking more menacing than the actual set. ^^

 

I'm really curious about the new directions your drawings have taken, with the long legs and large feet... it's certainly something different. :)

Oh hi there Taka! been a while :)

 

And yeah I'm really proud of Vakama and Zaktann, originally I was going to color Zaktann, but I added way to much detail and I kept screwing up on the coloring so I sort of dropped it ^^" but the other Skakdi will be just as menacing as Zaktann's

 

Yeah my artstyle certainly has changed over the years, especially since I found dA and have found a better place to put my art online 

 

 

 

Also, latest image guys, sorry its a sketch, but I have something coming here to BZP soon

 

Sibling Rivalry ((Tahu and Kopaka))

Yeah not many BIONICLE fans take too kindly to "gijinka"/humanized BIONICLEs very well XD

 

And thanks a lot about Zaktann. Quite frankly it was hard with him because I didn't know if I should go all out or keep it simple enough to draw a lot of, but then thanks to doing it more detailed, I think I found a perfect way of drawing BIONICLEs in Manga format
