Here’s my entry into the Art Contest:
Artahka, Seer of the Universe - Master of Creation
For the peice, I wanted to homage the G2 concept art since whilst I see no narrative continuity, I do think an aesthetic homage is warranted given the subject matter of the contest, hence his character framing is designed to homage the Art of Bionicle cover art. They’re two variants of the character image (one gold, one silver) that homage the interior of the Codrex.
Mask of Creation Design
Here’s my take on the Mask of Creation. I wanted to strike a balance between the G2 masks structure and G1 iconography. The mask itself contains detail parallels between all the Mata Masks, Ignika, Avohkii, Kraahkan and Kini-Nui/Coliseum in addition to the runic disposition the mask canonically is in.
Additionally, I made a few monochromatic art peices to better visualize the mask on the character, so here’s a link to that.
This guy presented a very different challenge to Helryx, but I think he came out just as I wanted him to. There’s a cute Easter egg for those who’re attentive. I hope this one doesn’t have too much water for people.
