I dont really like the blue hair on blue characters, green on green, and red on red. Too anime-ish instead of something natural or Maori-ish.
Yeah, if I invisioned the Toa as humans…most of them would have black or brown hair, maybe blond to add a bit more diversity…but still…
If anything the elemental color should be maybe a artificial highlight then the natural color. It completes the look without looking unnatural.
It’s from the “The journey begins” pamphlet, first page. You can view it here if you want.
Bionicle (at least the first three years) reminds me totally of Avatar. So these art renditions done by the artist are spot on.
Oh shoot, I have that pamphlet. I never really noticed the hair on Gali. It definetly looks strange. Like fitting and not fitting at the same time
Now, I don’t consider myself a very good artist, but I think it came out pretty well.
Here’s how I imagined Rahkshi if they were actually masked humans (with big metallic spines on the back though), with tattoos and colored skin.
I have a, a strong dislike for humanized Bionicles, yeah, they make me sick, right, okay?
secretly works on Bionicle high school AU
Reminds me of Avatar not the last airbender
Speaking of which, would “humanized bionicle” be more palatable if they were more “biological aliens” who just happen to have human-like features?
I don’t know. Humanized bionicle have never really attracted me, but that drawing I made made me like the idea of biological human like aliens with masks and such quite a bit.
