Oh, yeah, I've been meaning to post this for a bit. It's... not anything super-spectacular - as much as I'd like to produce more Bionicle artwork, capturing their detailed mechanical appearances doesn't come easily to me nowadays - but, at the very least, an attempt was made to get back into the style. I ran with movie style because... well, I've always loved how those old movies looked, anyway. And it just feels more natural to me than set-based style.

Also, considering I signed up to a movie-style animation project on here earlier in the year, I certainly need the practice!


I actually drew this several months back; only, I procrastinated on doing the final shading until recently. Not altogether sure whether I'm happy with it or not; but I figured, why not share it here anyway? It's far from the worst work I've shown here xD

Drawn with a wacom bamboo tablet in FireAlpaca; final shading added in Photoshop.

Um... I really don't know what I'm doing when it comes to drawing Bionicle characters. Constructive advice is welcome?

She's very cute. I love her expression. It's especially hard to make them emote with the masks, and you made it work as well as Miramax did. Can't wait to see your movie-style animations.

That's really amazing! =D You have a really nice, clean style going on there - for a second I was wondering if this was actually done with vectors. (also, nice digital lineart. I always struggle with that ^^')

Something about the perspective on the mask strikes me as a bit odd, but other than that, there's not really much to criticize here. :)

Keep up the good work, I'd love to see more of your art! :fonz:

Aw cute, love how you made her metal torso and mask so fluid and rounded in shape, really brings home the organic components of her body, and it fits a Ga-Matoran. Great job capturing the look of the movie Matoran too.
