Lightning Pohatu Drawing (WIP)

So for my art class at school we have to choose an artist to research and I decided to do Matt Betteker (Lead Concept Artist for BIONICLE G2) so that way I could just draw some BIONICLE Fanart. Anyway during the podcast they were talking about Pohatu being the Toa of Lightning, which I actually feel could have been a cool idea UNTIL THEY CANCELLED IT AND RUINED EVERYTHING but anyway, jokes aside, the idea is still cool and I feel obligated to finish the picture (Also I have to finish it for school anyway so...)

The drawing is still a WIP so this is just some sketchy line art, actual picture coming soon.


The reason the Kakama looks wierd is because I tried to make it seem more streamlined, almost like a flight helmet (similar to 08), to fit in with a stormy environment. Also the weapon is VERY sketchy, definitely gonna add more detail to that. BTW the outstretched hand is meant to be holding a lightning bolt.

I'm very new to digital art so feel free to leave criticism.

Update

Finished drawing (minus colour); any ideas for the colour scheme?

Update

Finished it, honestly not too sure about the colour scheme but I tried to make it seem lightningy while still looking like Pohatu. Brown and lightning don't go well together.
Anyway here it is:

It's defiantly good, better than I could make at least, but I think the mask needs some vents or some sort of protrusions on the side so it looks more like Pohatu.

The design is quite good, actually. I would try to give some more perspective. The left arm is very small, and it is very hard to tell what is going on with the right arm.

Seems odd in places but cool overall.
