This topic will hold my entries to the Flash Fire art contest. I've posted a few MoC topics on BZP, but never any art before now. Now that there's an interesting contest I'm finally posting some art. :)

Turaga VakamaPosted Image(click for full picture)

I thought a pixel art Vakama would be an interesting and different entry to the contest. Hopefully it doesn't break any rules. I don't see it winning, but I think it looks nice and I enjoyed making it.

Matoran TakuaPosted Image

This is probably my best piece of Bionicle artwork. I'm pretty happy with all of it except for his left arm, it looks a little weird. My favorite part is the mask.

Toa TahuPosted Image

Because I wanted to use a different style for each of my entries, I first colored this with colored pencils and then just messed around with it in GIMP. It actually turned out much better than I expected.

I think the picture is well drawn, and it's unique that it's all pixel-y. I personally don't see anything wrong with it. Good job!

It's very well drawn and looks good for a bunch of pixels. Nice work.

8-bit-style Vakama? Sweet! :D

Awesome! Although he looks a bit too tall, this is still cool. I really like the details and the 8-bit-style of drawing is awesome. Nice job on this, Senrab!

For Takua, the head is really big when compared to the whole body. The colors are great but they don't exactly fit Takua well. Also, the mask is nicely done.

The head is a bit large, but that's probably because my drawing was based on the McToran version. :P Why don't you think the colors fit Takua?Thanks for the comment and criticism. :)

I mean, the colors are like all over the place and some of them are in weird spots. For example, the yellow at the bottom of the mask makes the mask look like a Huna.

Looking back at the picture, the colors do look kinda strange. I think it might have been because I was trying to add blue to more places than just his mask, and it didn't work out as well as I thought it would.Added my final entry, Tahu. Feel free to comment. :)

Actually, I like your Tahu the most of all, although your Takua was also very cool looking. The sketchy style and Glow effects look messy at first, but one I got a good look at it, the style fits. It almost seems like an ancient Matoran carving of Tahu. I really like the mask especially. :)Takua looks very cool, especially the mask, and the style looks good here too. Maybe a little less colors on the mask though, it just doesn't seem 'solid,' if you know what I mean.Vakama is a very original take. I did not expect an 8bit Vakama while looking through the entries! It looks very good, although tall, and the 8bit style turned out very nice. Some very good work you have here. I hope you continue doing more art in the future. Best of luck in the contest!

The Tahu entry looks great. The way it's drawn is awesome and the colors are cool. The details are also nice. By the way, how did you create the sword?

The flame for the sword was made by drawing a circle with the sparkle/glow or something brush (I don't remember what it was called) in Gimp, then using the smear tool on it.

These are good. Vakama is unique and well drawn. Takua is very well done, and is probably my favorite. I'm not sure about tahu, though the texture when you zoom in is quite cool.

I'm glad you like Vakama, I didn't know if people would like the pixel style. Takua is also my favorite. I didn't really know what I was doing with Tahu, but I think he turned out okay. Thanks for the comment and good luck in the contest.:)
