These are the final pieces for a series of models commissioned by ghost-mantis! Throughout 2016 she was commissioning me to do reimaginations of Bionicle Gen2 Elemental Creatures. Finally, the set is complete! [uxar and Ketar post] [Akida and Ikir post] So, first we have here Terak, an Elemental Creature of Earth. Decided to go with the most obvious animal reference - the mole. Love the drill nuzzle. :3 [Digital MOC Commission] Terak by Artemiy Karpinskiy, on Flickr The second piece is Melum, the Elemental Creature of Ice. I drew my inspiration from polar bear and pangolin (hence the plating). There’s also a bit of a tiger in here somewhere, unintentional but I can’t shake the feeling it’s there. [Digital MOC Commission] Melum by Artemiy Karpinskiy, on Flickr And finally we have is a reimagination of Ekimu’s Hawk with upscaling him to match the other Creatures. You may notice something and say “HEY, I’VE SEEN THIS BUILD BEFORE”. Yes, you did. It’s a redecorated and recolored Ikir. I apologize, the build is too good not to use. [Digital MOC Commission] Ekimu's Hawk by Artemiy Karpinskiy, on Flickr --- If you like what I do and you want to see me create your OC, a favorite Bionicle Character, or something else, feel free to look up my Commission Info! I also run a Patreon Page now, so if you feel like supporting me on a more constant basis, consider to pledge in. Thank you!
Here is some absolutely stupid speculation about this year's first wave of sets. First off, let's start with the Melum speculation. Melum's name is Melum. This is similar to 'Malum', which I think means bad in latin? Additionally, Melum shares the letters 'M', 'E', and 'U' with Metus, a character from 2009. Metus was a traitor. As as result of the above, we can guess that Melum is a bad guy and a traitor, thus explaining why Melum has no trap like the other creatures. Melum is a traitor! Now, Umarak speculation! Umarak is not hunting the creatures. He didn't place the traps, they're just part of Okoto's wonderful wildlife. Umarak is hunting for the Mask of Control. To prevent the Toa from getting it. Umarak is also hunting the Toa. Umarak knows of Kulta and the other Skull Skeletons. In a past blog entry, I've said that I like to think that Kulta, Basher, and Slicer used to be Toa, but have masks that prevent them from dying. Umarak attempted to hunt them in the past, only to fail because they cannot die. Umarak has been around longer than the Toa, but arrived after Ekimu and Makuta's confrontation. Umarak has no allegiance to either, and just seeks the Mask of Control because it would allow him to control anything that wasn't Umarak. There, stupid speculation over.
