In order to not flood GA (because yes, I still draw Bionicle-based stuff from time to time! Just never get around to posting it...), here's an art collection. All new stuff will be put here - if you're interested in some of my older works, there's a list at the bottom of this post. As for the rest and future plans, I intend to put stuff up as it comes along, new stuff on top, and of course update posts.
 
Comments and criticism are greatly appreciated, as always!

Mantax (posted 12/05/2018)

This was originally drawn in ballpoint pen, then coloured with coloured pencils and some gel pens. And then I re-outlined the whole thing because it was a mess, added the background (ink wash, technically.) I just really like Mantax's design, and it's been ages since I last drew him (six years or something. Time flies. D: )
I may point out that this was done without a reference because you know, I draw most things while on the subway, to uni. (obviously, colouring and background were added later, at home. I don't carry that many supplies around all the time.) So it's sorta inaccurate, but I'm actually fairly happy with it design-wise. ^^

New artwork!

I basically just wanted to see what my oldest character ever would look like in her current iteration - and just for once, in colour. Because yes, I am still sticking to the old colour cheme from who-knows-when-probably-2009.

 

Colouring was done in coloured pencils, sadly some things from other pages sort of... show up for some reason. Inking was done with a brush pen, and the background is an ink wash. It took me a while to complete this, mainly because I waited forever in between the inking and colouring stages, because I really didn't want to mess it up. :)

Very nice! I like how she's posed, looks like she's getting serious.

Thanks! :D It was fun to draw.

That was the idea :D Glad you like it! ^^

E: of course, today's the day I want to post some art as well ^^' might as well add it in here, then.

Just some preparatory Hahli Mahri sketches for a small watercolour thing I want to try. (and will also put here once it's done). Ultimately I decided to do the profile view because watercolour's a fairly new medium to me, so I want the motive to note be overly complicated, at least. :)

Wow, I hope once you're more comfortable in the medium you'll come back to the front view, because that sketch is great. I love her look of determination, and the shape of the Faxon is really well-done--it's clearly a Faxon, but with a distinctly feminine form that I think pretty clearly evokes Hahli and not Lesovikk (though I might just be imagining that).

 

On that note, if that was intentional, I'd love to see your take on Lesovikk! I haven't spent much time in General Art, but I can't say I've seen the same Kanohi drawn on two characters of different genders by the same artist.

 

Fantastic work as usual, and good luck with the watercolor!

... and because I said I'd put it here, it's what I do now. ^^ Nothing big, just a monochromatic thingie to work out how my watercolours behave. And it's okay I guess? Might have chosen a less intense shade of blue, but overall I'm okay with it. And my scanner really hates the watercolour paper. Ah well. ^_^

Haha thanks, maybe I will. :) (or make an evern better sketch, who knows ^^') Glad the mask is recogniseable! This time I did look up the set before/while drawing it, as opposed to my usual "I'll just draw what I remember from ~5 years ago, who cares..." ^^

 

Huh, Lesovikk.. Guess I'd have to look him up again, i't been such a long time. o.o

 

Thanks again! :)

Just realised that I can't remember posting this one. It's actually from last year? Somewhere around the end of 2017, anyway. I rarely ever draw Turaga Vakama, although I love that scene in MoL where he whacks the Rakshi (Rahkshi? idk 'bout the spelling) in the head with his staff. Beautiful. :3
