BIONICLE: Catalyst is a personal/self-indulgent project of freelance artist Lady Kopaka/Susannah L. A rewrite of the G1 BIONICLE ending. In an alternate universe, it focuses on the heroes and villains of the Matoran Universe. Makuta has won, Mata Nui seemingly vanished, allies are scattered, and demise is imminent. Tensions run high as the fate of their universe rest in broken hands.

It's a very interesting idea, m'lady. I am not a huge fan of human conversions, but I very much appreciate the art. I'm looking forward to your next posts.

Hey all! It's been awhile!

 

Update on the comic:

- Started the script. Slated to be finished in December and the actual comic (prologue) will appear in late January.

- Almost done with most character designs. Most. There's so many characters!

- I'll do my best to post more art here. A lot of the development art is being held for Patreon (not sure if I can link that here). I'll see about giving some exclusive rights to BZP for early access.

 

Here's some development art:

This should be very interesting.

Will you put a character chart to show who's who?

Hey,

No worries. When content begins to show in the next few weeks that I'll make it clear to who is who.

Hi there,

 

I just want to tell you that you're such an amazing artist. =D

 

I also like this whole idea you have going on here. I've seen a bunch of amazing human conversions of BIONICLE characters over at deviantArt, so I'm really looking forward to this one :D

Hi! I greatly appreciate the compliment.

 

Some updates:

- I'm building a personal website for when the comic actually appears. In the long run it saved me a lot of trouble than attempting to post it in twenty different sites. I don't think there should be any issues with me linking it? If so I'll work something out with moderators.

- A short comic series should appear before the actual release of Catalyst. Mostly to dip my toes into the whole comicking business.

- I suppose it's apparent I'm behind on the actual release. Oops. Sorry guys. Health has been finicky. I really have no ETA now on release, but it will be coming out this year. Delays stink, I know.

- I think that's all the news I really have?

 

Anyway, here's some recent art:

The makuta head concepts give off this impression that I've seen before in Ganondorf appearance. :) Thumbs up to you! 

Hoping your health doesn't linger forever. :/

Thank you kindly for the compliment! I'd say I found inspiration for Makuta mixing a bit of Ganondorf and Count Dooku.

And sadly my health problems are chronic. ): But I'm still trying my best to fight back and find a healthy balance.

 

 

Looking good, LK! ^^

 

Don't worry too much about release dates; taking care of yourself is more important. :)

 

-Inferna

Thank you, Inferna! I agree. Taking care of myself takes precedence. Sadly I wish I could squeeze in more time to art!

 

 

 

Okay guys! Just updating to say I finally have a stable release date. The entire prologue (roughly 15 pages) will be released August 2nd. It coincides with Brickfair Virginia! Chapter 1 will then be updated everyday during Brickfair (until the 6th). From there, the updates will slow down to twice or three times a week, with the occasional break to keep a healthy buffer up.

I can't view catalystwebcomic.com or the separate links you've provided. Is the site down?

Sorry it took me forever to get back to you and well...everyone. Life is kind of a shambling mess, haha.

 

I'll see what I can do and fix the issue. Not sure why the link isn't working but we'll get this sorted!

Wow this better than I could hope for.

Great job lady K!

OMG thank you so much for your kind words!

 

 

Hey guys! I'm currently updating the first page to contain all art, current pages, and general updated information. Thought that would help some folks.

 

Also I forgot to show this piece to everyone! Click to see the larger version.
