One of the main reasons I really enjoy the 2004/5 story is because it's pretty much a superhero story. Think about it- six uplifting citizens are gifted with extraordinary powers in their time of need, so they can save their city from an impending doom. With this in mind, I decided to draw some Metru. Nuju & Whenua have a great dynamic, with one looking to the future, while the other looks to the past.
Yeah, they got shoes because my interpretation of these guys are that they're just wearing armour. Obviously they couldn't afford armour shoes or something. I also did a Matau (does anyone else see the goggles/eyewear in his mask?):
