Pohatu 2015 (in 2001 colours too)

Recommended Posts

On a whim I decided to draw Pohatu Master of Stone. I wasn't impressed by this set to begin with, but it's grown on me!

Also I thought I'd slap the ol' 2001 colour scheme on him for comparison:

Not only is that a really cool drawing, but man, Pohatu looks good back in brown.

Yeah I 3rd that statement... Pohatu is looking even better in his '01 colors. If this was out I'd even pick it up... even though Pohatu was one of my Brother's Toa...

This is an excellent drawing! I really like your style. Pohatu looks great in both pics - I really like the original colours, but somehow it doesn't fit as well as I would have imagined. Just goes to show how much Pohatu 2015's colour scheme has grown on me!

Yeah I could see how the 2015 color pallet could grow on you thus alienating the 2001 pallet. I do not suffer from this it seems as I still vote for the '01 colors. He looks great in them...

Thanks for the praise!

 

Personally I'm not overly fond of the 2001 colours, though the 2015 set could use some improvement too. I think adding a colour as well as burnt orange - maybe reddish brown - would do wonders for it.

i would love to have both as sets. The translucent sulfur-green-yellow has grown on me, so I would either keep that or make it Sedona red (dark red with a brown tinge).

Fantastic drawing! Again, the pose is very powerful and dynamic.

 

I like the 2015 set colors better than the 2001 colors. They're brighter, and the asymmetrical color blocking and layering go well with the asymmetrical builds of his arms. It is cool to see what he would have looked like in his old colors, though.

 

I did some edits back in the day to see what his 2001/2002 incarnations would look like with his 2008 primary color and vice-versa (I think the last of those was more specifically to see what he might look like with a Mistika-style color scheme — a darker primary color with silver as the secondary, instead of a brighter primary color with dark stone grey as the secondary). There was ironically a fourth edit that was Dark Orange and Silver, which is pretty close to what his 2015 color scheme ended up being.
