So I’ve noticed that while we have often made references to the Rahkshi and their lives pre mutation, we don’t really have art of what they might look like when they were Matoran. So I took upon myself to draw some very rough concepts working backwards from @Oomatu’s G3 Rahkshi concepts, as well as drawing elements from the Toa Hagah sets for Norik and Iruini.
I like the idea of giving their masks these distinct markings mirroring those on Oomatu’s concept art. Pouks was inspired by his concepts for a Motaran Nomadic tribe, which @ToaNoah_Wafflemeister has also used as his basis for the character as a proposed set.
Kualus was based largely on his Rahkshi form, but draws elements of fan interpretations of his Mask of Rahi Control from G1, simplifying the basic shape. though I am probably the least satisfied with the look of this one.
Norik was heavily based on Brotherhood of Makuta concept art, again drawn by Oomatu
Gaaki and Bomonga I don’t have a good idea of what to make them look like yet.
