Helryx had several, perhaps contradictory, characteristics that supplied lots of ideas to work with:
Formidable yet vulnerable, she’s one of the most powerful Toa, who rejects a Toa’s greatest power.
I pretty much aimed for what I wish (as I often do) Helryx could’ve looked like: someone who’s imposing, battle-worn, elegant/regal and sinister all at once!
The scratched/spiked Knights Kingdom pauldrons and the layers of cloth were both integral for this build, as they supported all the aspects I was going for.
I made her especially thin and skeletal around the limbs, ribcage, waist and feet (originally used on Construction Deva’s Helryx), and attempted to emulate bandages with tires.
All this contrasts with (and complements, I hope) her overall fearsome look, and of course the ridiculous size of her mace;
In accordance with the laws of anime: a character’s power is directly proportional to the size of their weapon, no?
