What font is that?
Edit: never mind, figured it out. Really creative font.

Don’t like how flat the mask is, though.

I like the art style, but I don’t think it’d work for a canon appearance. Maybe it’d work as a drawing of an already canon character, but the first canon appearance of a character should be more detailed imo

The shaping of the mask is strong. I would vote for this mask.

DUDE THIS IS SO RADDDD

I’m glad you liked the mask design. I largely based it off of ‘01 vibes, but also drew inspiration from Riven: the Sequel to Myst:

If you don’t know, the Myst series was a big inspiration for MNOG, and I feel the series has a lot of general Bionicle vibes. The split top also represents a brain, since psychometry is a brain thing.

You say Myst inspired Bionicle architecture, but I don’t really see it.

Yes, this was meant to be sarcastic.

Great art @Crunchy, it really makes me excited to see all the other interpretations that will come from the canonization of Helryx’s appearance.
