(Bionicle Canonization Contest) - Helryx Art Submission by Perp3tual

I surprised myself with this piece not gonna lie.

My depiction of the Order of Mata Nui leader complete with an original mask design. I’m not good at describing posts, so check out the piece and supplementing mask design.

Good work Perp

This reminds me of a lot of the G2 concept art in the best possible way!

Brilliant design. The mask is filled out and full of great detail. I especially appreciate the bottom exhausts on either side of the chin. They remind me of the great huna.

Side note: If Helryx predates all toa, wouldn’t she resemble a toa metru?

Excellent work!

Thanks! Getting that mask just right was probably the biggest hurdle for the piece, so I’m glad that you liked it.

I actually ended up reinterpreting some aspects of the original moc to better tie her into the design of Hydraxon and to a lesser extent Axonn since they would have had to have been made right around the same time for the Hand of Artahka. I started work on a group shot to show the idea in action, but in the end focusing on the single mural for the sake of time.

Oh dang, this feels like high-quality concept art straight from Faber or the G2 artbook. Amazing work!

Love this art style, it’s a really good look for Helryx, makes her seem almost primordial.

Not feminine enough for me. But it’s still okay nonetheless.

Bionicle’s don’t need curves, tiddy and bums.
