I voted for Axonn just because he has a big ax and that would be cool to see.

Axonn is one of my favorite characters.  Voted.

 

Too bad there aren't a lot of options, though.

Technically, with the "Other" option, there's plenty of options. These just happen to be the ones the BS01 staff was committed to putting their own money towards.Then again, if I had a choice I'd just get an 03 Takanuva, so I can recolor him as Toa Swert : D

Remember that we're not technically bound by the results of the poll, but I definitely want to see what people think, which is why I implore the use of the "other" vote, if you have a good idea.

 

Anyhow, I'm not even sure who I'd want as a pick anymore; I was initially for 2003 Teridax, but Axonn becomes more and more enticing as it goes on. Still need to mull this one over.

I voted "Other," because I'd rather see Keetongu. I've always felt that he was a rather neglected character, so he sticks out in my mind.

However, if I had to pick one of these options, I'd go with Lesovikk.

Axonn all the way. While Makuta would be very cool, I can almost predict how we would draw it based on his art style, and it may not be as good as some would hope. My support's with Axonn because I think his art style would fit that character very well.

 

and 'cuz its Axonn

From that perspective, Gaardus makes quite a lot of sense.

 

...Unfortunately, Gaardus is incredibly ugly. I'd rather get an awesome piece of artwork of a character we already have rather than a good piece of artwork for an ugly combiner model.

 

However, out of all these characters, from the perspective of a wiki Gaardus would be the default choice and would be most helpful for the wiki. From a community perspective, however, it's not going to be the most popular choice. :P

I WAS gonna answer "baterra", but then I saw the option of Lesovikk on his sled, and I HAD to vote for it! Lesovikk is a character we haven't seen in art yet, and I would LOVE to see artwork of him!

 

I'd also love to see more baterra work too, if possible. :P

Well, since I haven't heard whether D'Anda is willing to do a large character and a small character in one drawing I'm still going for my evolution idea. Whether it's Takua/Takanuva or Jaller, some kind of Matoran followed up with a Toa is ideal to me and would help represent the line better than any random person.

I support this in full, which is why I voted 'other'. My other would be this, easily.

We're generally trying to stick with ones that actually have models available for reference. The Baterra have shown up in multiple art forms anyway, so a rendition of a rendition would be a little silly.

 

Well, since I haven't heard whether D'Anda is willing to do a large character and a small character in one drawing I'm still going for my evolution idea. Whether it's Takua/Takanuva or Jaller, some kind of Matoran followed up with a Toa is ideal to me and would help represent the line better than any random person.

 

In terms of amount of art, it should be the same, but it's being looked into.

 

Also your sig reminded me of Botar and my vote is now "other" for Botar because Botar is THE BEST.

 

I'm the only one that voted for Gaardus. Come on. We've seen enough of everyone there. But this person we haven't except on some promo poster I think in Lego Brickmaster.

That's sort of why he made the cut. Also, since he appears to be super unpopular, who better to make him actually interesting than D'Anda?

I'm undecided as of yet. I imagine that it'll turn out nicely for just about whoever might get picked. :)

 

Anyway, here are some of my own ideas for people to consider. I'm not voting for them necessarily, and I don't know if you guys will like them or not, but it might inspire some other ideas:

- Umbra

- Krakua (now in the poll)

- Trinuma

- Tobduk

Could I still donate or something to get the print? It would be pretty cool.By the way, out of the new options, Krakua would be pretty awesome, but I think Takua and Vortex Makuta would be rather underwhelming. Takua would be rather small and boring without the evolution or something, and the Vortex Makuta would be a bunch of pieces and tendrils with a Hau in the middle. I'm pretty sure I could draw both of them in his style (and I've been thinking about taking on Takua). Lesovikk all the way!!

Too late Dorek, already pitched in the $30.Anyway, I decided to null btw. I figure in the end I'll end up with at least a final say in all of it somehow.But I can't make up my mind D:

Hmm. Any possibility I could chip in for coloring costs?

 

Anyway, I still haven't voted, but here are some more thoughts to consider when you guys are picking your character: 

- Gaardus could turn out well or he could turn out badly. I assume you've been in talks with Mr. D'Anda during this process; would you mind asking if he would be able to draw Gaardus in a way that would make him good? :P

 

- Krakua is similar to the Toa Mata in terms of appearance and his Suletu is shaped like a Hau, both of which Mr. D'Anda has experience drawing, so we have a good idea of what he'll turn out like. He's one of my top choices right now.

 

- Lesovikk could also turn out well. I think what would make him really good is if Mr. D'Anda were able to put a lot of emotion into his eyes; of the popular candidates, he has one of the best opportunities to do this, since we're so familiar with his personality but we haven't seen any portrayal of him that demonstrates it.

 

- Umbra was my original choice, but I'm not quite as sure now. He is an interesting character, and if he struck a cool pose it might be good, but I just don't know if he would be the best choice anymore.

 

- I think the clean style of the MNOLG and the Flash animations works better for Takua than a more comic style.

 

- Vortex Makuta seems like a good candidate at first thought, but there really isn't anything you can do with him, since he's just a swirling mass. Besides, too much detail would take away the mystery of him; part of what makes him so cool is that he's just a silhouette floating in the air.

 

Of these, I'm leaning towards Lesovikk with Krakua in second.

Augh, meant to get around to chipping in a bit once there was some more consensus on what the picture'd be of, but it looks like I was beaten to the punch. :PWell, as a non-contributor, my vote might not count much, but it's a toss-up between Takua, 2003 Teridax, and Lesovikk for me. The former two feel iconic for the series, but Lesovikk's yet to get a canon depiction in art, and is a fairly interesting character.

Well, I didn't get time to donate, but please don't go with 2003 Teridax. We've had so many pictures of him already, it would be such a waste of this rare opportunity.  :(

 

Can we go with the drawing place in the poll, Lesovikk? My original vote was for Gaardus, but I realized Lesovikk hasn't had a single art piece drawn of him either.
