My Daily Bionicle Art


BBLIR

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I forgot I had an account here oops :v I've been making a drawing/painting every day for the past few weeks, mainly Bionicle characters. I've been posting them regularly elsewhere (on Twitter and Bluesky), and since they've piled up, I'm gonna dump the first 50.

I make most of them using watercolours and alcohol markers, sometimes just ink or acrylic paints.

I'm also open to requests!

Enjoy!

Oh, these are neat! You've got a very cool style here; these all look fantastic, but a few that specifically stand out to me:

- Absolutely love the inclusion of Flare Slizer, and your take on his design is really cool. Slizers is such an underrated theme, so I'm happy to see it get a bit of appreciation!

- Really like the texture you've got on Kongu's mask there; and the expression / tilt of the head make him feel very alive.

- Avak with the glowing eyes there looks superbly menacing! Also he's my favourite of the Piraka, so the fact that he was your subject for that picture makes me happy ^^

- Really like the addition of orange to your design of Nuparu Mahri; it's a part of his colour palette that I've long thought his Toa forms lacked, and you pull it off really well on him!

- That Krika is terrifying, but in the best way; I love the insect-like eyes you gave him, as well as the way you've done his fangs, and the colours there work really well.

- Love the colouring and flame effects on that one of Raanu!

- Really like your takes on Ahkmou and Kapura! The perspective on Ahkmou is really neat, and I love how you give a sense of expression to his mask there; and I like the style you've given Kapura, and the colour scheme - particularly the way the yellow highlights like his eyes stand out against the predominant red.

Those specific thoughts said though, these all look fantastic; great work! :D

Thank you both!

He's my favourite too! I also replaced the battery in his brain. Wouldn't recommend. (also I used glow in the dark paint on the teeth)

I think it's my favourite artwork out of all of these, Krika's design seems to really click with me.

 

New batch coming tomorrow! It'll be fewer than this one, but it will catch up to the present :)

These are so cool, and it is extra impressive what a wide range of styles you are able to draw them in. Some look very set-accurate while others are more impressionistic. There are so many good ones, but I think my favorites are:

Nuhvok Va (he looks weirdly cute like an angry kitten)

Kongu Inika

Nuparu Mahri

Krika

Bulk

Gorast

Good guy

Fikou and Click (I can't decide which one is cuter)

Dume/Makuta (that one, specifically the layout, is excellent and reminds me of the original comics)

Makuta's MNOG vortex form (it's creepy to actually imagine him as a bunch of body parts flying around)

 

I do not recognize the white Miru-wearing character. Are they an OC?

I also recognize the Mask of Life as it appears in VNOG and BIONICLE Heroes. Is that meant to be Matoro, Toa Ignika, Mata Nui or possibly the first Toa who used it? Or just a hypothetical character? I would be interested in a full drawing of him, his torso and shoulder armor and weapon look cool but it looks like a cropped version of a larger image.

The Sanok with the crosshairs is a creative idea. I also think similar iconographic depictions of Kanohi masks would be interesting.

seriously cannot figure out what the Goomba-looking thing is supposed to be. It is well drawn, I just do not recognize it. If I saw it elsewhere I would not even recognize it as BIONICLE or LEGO.

That's matoran-form Kongu, decided to save on time by making it grayscale. ...and with yellow accents

Intended as Toa Ignika, with the BH design.

Considered!

That's one of the characters that aren't Bionicle (the other being the one sandwitched between Kirop and Rocka) - it's Mega Met.

 

And now, the second dump, up to present day:

Super happy to see Tamaru and Nuparu included; they're both characters who I like a lot :D The colours on Tamaru look really nice; and I love how spiky you've made the points on Nuparu's mask! I really love the glowing effect you've achieved on his zamor spheres, too ^^

Lessovik looks fantastic; I love how you've stylised him, while keeping him still instantly recognisable. I really like how the shift of colour due to the lighting works on his armour too, especially the lime parts.

The painterly look of that Norik is a really neat style; works so well for the character.

The study of Matau's wing is really cool. I like your design on him as a whole, too; especially the styling of his mask and chestplate. The red lighting shining on his green armour is a really effective touch as well!

These are so terrific, so many wonderful pictures, I love the vivid colors! Many of these would make great profile pics. 

rhombusjones is right, you are very good at making each image unique and memorable. You should consider offering commissions, I would possibly pay for a rendition of my self-MOC in your style.

I'll consider it, but I have some stuff to figure out so it's not gonna be anytime soon unfortunately. I'll definitely make an announcement when I'm ready :).

 

Here's a new batch containing some real good stuff, including another game teaser (info coming tomorrow! on my Twitter if anyone's interested)

Plushie week! I started by drawing Macku, then I figured I might as well do Hewkii, and then I decided to do the entire Inika cast. That Nuparu is so dang cute I cant help but smile.

Honestly echoes my feelings when I drew them lol.

Anyway, here's the latest batch, featuring some medium experimentation, the first MOC request and some absolute BANGERS. Enjoy!

Can't believe I've missed this topic for an entire month!! What the heck!!

These are all so very cool! If you do end up opening commissions, I would be very very interested!!

Too many here to go over each individual piece, but I'll highlight some of my favorites:

-Bohrok Va from post #1. Love the watercolor, love the perspective.

-Krika from post #1

-Click from post #1

-I think it's Makuta from MNOG? The Hau with all the creepy arms?

-Krika sketch from post #2

-Norik from post #2

-the starry night sky from post #3

-Umbra from post #4

-harp girl from the latest post (I feel like this is a character I recognize from somewhere but I do not remember where from)

-Krika collage from latest post, very cool look (also Krika is just cool in general)

This week featuring mask interpretations, Toa and a what if "Toa" Ahkmou. Enjoy!

Also, I'm excited about having drawn day 100(!), so you're getting a sneak peek at the 100th drawing/painting!

The way you draw masks from different angles is so good!

I also love the background coloring for the third image and the Mata Nui drawing 💛

Thank you! Tbh I could have more variety in mask angles, but yeah I got good stuff going.

I'm posting this week's batch early, since it's a bit mean to keep you waiting for 2 drawings (I'm gonna take a break before I get back to drawing, to prevent burnout). Which is not to say they're weak, today I present to you the unnamed Toa from Jovan's team (only specified thing being the mask), and the big boi himself, Mata Nui. I drew the latter larger, over 3 pages, each with an art medium I used during the challenge. The legs I coloured with alcohol markers, the torso with watercolours and the head with inks.

Enjoy! I'll see you in about two weeks, and if you're interested, I'll make a tier list of all the 100 drawings so you can rank them!

As a bonus, I'm attaching a picture of the 2 sketchbooks I've used for this challenge.
