Well, just through sheer awesome playing, Tyler got me to draw his BZPRPG-character Dorian.

 

Focused more on the lineart than on the shading, but didn't have the time to polish it to some endless degree.

 

The statue version of Dorian is based off of Michelangelo's David, with the addition of a magnificent scarf.

Haha.  Very good! Its pretty funny too. I love the shading and lighting, it looks really realistic. I also love seeing different peoples spins on what Bionicles look like. I see you normally go with the more human sort of look. I cant quite tell what the Kanohi is, although I think its a... "Jaller Inika mask." cant remember the name.

 

Very good job!

Simply amazing as always, VF.

 

The smaller details in the lineart, the little ridges and additions to the armor that adds to it's intricacy, the tattoos on non-statue Dorian, really bring it all together quite nicely.  The shading is subtle, while I must say that I'm really liking the texture added to Statue!Dorian.  Plus, it's Dorian.  I mean really, if that's not some kind of automatic win, then, well...

 

This is really awesome, and the scarf olul.

 

And this is only monochrome.  Though the colors are actually accurate considering he's a Fe-Toa.

 

I tried to limit myself to saying that "this is awesome" only once, find some more descriptive words and, but...

 

This is awesome.

 I think it's a Faxon. 

 

 This is gotta one of your best drawings. I love how realistic it looks! The way you designed the neck is probably the best part. It just looks so great. It's hard not to heap praise, in a way. It's just near flawless.

Isn't it a Calix? But w/e.I like how you resembled the statue to Michealangelo's sculptue. It gives it a nice touch. The details are really good on it, better than your other ones IMO. The shading on it makes it look really realistic as well.As for the "real" one, I really like all the details you put that are not on the statue. All the chest designs are really well done, same with the details on the entire thing.

Why is it that the first thing I think of when I see this is Kamen Rider?

 

...

 

Probably the chest-armour and the scarf.

It does very much remind me of "David", and classical art in general, which is something I don't recall seeing in any kind of BIONICLE fanart.  Nice job! :)

This is me right now: :surprised: :OMG: My jaw dropped when I saw this. This is sooo cool, words can't begin to describe it. I absolutely LOVE the hands, elbows, and knees. The torso makes Dorian look hot! I bow to your great drawing skills: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:  lol

And that response sounds just like something Dorian would say.

The tall version is nice, but the little one looks like he has tribal tattoos on him, and he broke his teeth. I really do see a chipped tooth. The scarf was a nice touch.

The smaller one is the IC version.

Dorian broke a tooth in a fight(Turaga assasinations?), and I'm not totally sure whats going on with the tatoos.

Ah, I've always loved your art. :3 (I seem to say that in every art topic of yours somehow xD)

 

The idea for using David's pose for the statue is genious. And the anatomy is great, and the armour design. The scarf's a really nice addition, too.

What I particularly love is the textures, especially on Real-Dorian's upper legs - very convincing.

 

And so on, and so on, it's really great, you should do more Bionicle-themed art. :3
