So, the Toa Inika kanohi are known widely for two things. Not being backwards compatible, and scaring small children.


but anyway, to the heart of the matter here, I was bored, and decided to re-draw the six Inika Kanohi as they would be if they weren't freaky and rubbery:


Some of them are kinda meh, but it's the kind of meh that can't be fixed! (Kinda like the Water Dragon...)


(NOTE: these design changes are a subjective opinion/headcanon and do not reflect, represent, or replace the actual canon appearances of these masks in any past, present, or future bionicle storyline.)

This stuff's actually good, with the exception of the Elda. I don't like the way you redesigned that one. Also, I think the Sanok was good in gray.


The Elda was giving me problems, with those too-organic eyebrows and that uncomfortable hose entry/exit point. in the end, i accidentally made it too removed from the source mask,


oops. i may retry Elda later.


(yeah, sanok is great in grey, i guess i just made it brown here for "traditional color scheme" stuff. :b)

I like the mask designs, they're still recogniseable (even without colour-coding ^^). The Calix has to be my favourite, but they're all cool.



They still look pretty rubbery.

Right, today you learn an important lesson in texture:


Don't do whatever I did here. :u



Nah, just make the shadows a bit sharper-edged and add a highlight or two, and you're already there. :)

I really like seeing deorganic Inika masks, and I really need to try it myself. The Calix looks really cool, especially in that quarter view. The Elda is looking better too. I really like the Sanok and Kadin, and I hope you do the rest in the quarter views. I'm not a big fan of the Iden, but the top is clever.

presenting the first three from a different view, which i think captures the difference between the originals and these a tad bit better.


the calix is a tricky thing to draw from different angles though...

That Calix is class...

The Calix looks pretty good, I like that the eyes are not the original and the mouth is not that good, in my opinion I think it would look great if the mouth is like the Volitak mouth. Elda is not good looking at the front but the side very is a lot better and I do love the mouth and eyes.

Suletu is great and I love everything about it and I would be really interest in seeing that mask made. And the Sanok is great too but the top part of the head with the holes are not good, I think it would be better if it was the original top head or like the Great Ruru.

The Kadin and Iden are my most favorite out of the others and I would love to see those mask made and being seen in plastic.
