I'm sure it can get quite bland at times for the most precise lines and shading every week for simlar art that takes up about an inch or two in space.

 

My main question is, what do you plan to do with all the masks when the project is complete?

My main reason for this is to practice my detailing, shading and dedication, but I may compile these into posters or something and sell them once I have more done. I don't really have a definitive end in mind.  You are right about the tediousness though. It is why I am often late, but the repetition and concretion of the goals give me a tangible goal to strive for that is more invigorating than my typical pointless fruitless drawing.

 

Since I have missed a bit, I come this week with extra goodies.

 

First off, I realized I probably should make a head for the masks. So I did.

It's not a Kanohi, but it is now part of the project.

 

 

The Kraahkan has two "faces" on one mask, so I finished the second one.

I don't like this one as much, but as I did it, I realized just how inaccurate my first one was. That makes me feel good about my progress.

 

 

And finally, taking the medal for the most time spent on a single mask, the Olmak.

Not only is it gold, but it controls the dimensions, too. It doesn't get much better than that.

 

 

 

And I also updated all of the masks in the spoiler in the first post.

 

Thank you again everyone who comments on here, and thanks for putting up with my laziness and lateness.

 

 

 

 

 

Edit: I almost forgot. I touched up the Akaku. It looks a lot better now.

Ah, the images look amazing collectively in the original post.

Yes, all of them in one place makes them look really nice (not that were not nice already, mind you). :D

I should look through my masks and take pictures of them. Perhaps they can be of help to you. I own all of the masks on second row (in the spoiler on the topic post) in addition to that small golden one + a few others I'm not sure about (you have done two of them already). :)

EDIT: You are planning on doing this guy's mask, right?

Because I have his mask and Lewa's from the same area if you need reference images. Kopaka Nuva was the first Bionicle I owned, so he is special to me.

Rather, I have decided to draw EVERY Kanohi mask.

All of them.

Yes, as Alcom so accurately pointed out, I do plan to do all of them, but the Nuva masks are so fluid looking I have put them off. The smoothness makes them look cool, but really hard to shade. My laziness kicks in at that point and they don't get done.

 

Thanks about your offer to photo them. I own at least one color of every mask that was available on Bricklink. The ones I didn't have I ordered a while back, so thanks, but no thanks. however, if you have the red-and-black Kiril, please do photo that one. I am still dubious over the coloring and only have the yellow version.

What does the glitchy image looks when tiled?

This is the first mask that isn't an elemental mask with a power. (excepting the Infected Hau, it doesn't have a power either.)

 

I couldn't find a name for it, and I don't know if the Glatorian helmets are even truly Kanohi, but I am still doing them, and I am calling this one The Tarix or Tarix's Mask since it was the mask Tarix wore.

Doing a consistant front-view is good, but some masks lose a lot in a front view. This mask look quite like a scuba mask with metal seaweed growing off of the back when looked at from the side although some of that is lost in the front view. This is added to my list of vaguely more human-like Kanohi.

I am not sure if that is boredom or a level of insanity not seen before. So long as it doesn't rub off on me, I think I'll just let him to himself.

 

How bored would you even have to be to willingly copy+pate that static over twenty times?

It looks a little... squished. Just the shape of it. There again, I haven't got his mask/helmet/seaweed/whatever so this is based on practically nothing.

That's what I was saying. :P

I have it, and it does look a little squished in the set too.

This week I made Metus's mask. The annoying little fellow had an annoying little mask. It was surprisingly hard considering it is symmetrical and only covers half the head. Must have been those horn things.

And as Aidenpons' and Guurahk's critique was inconclusive, I have not changed the Tarix.

Yeah, you don't need to change Tarix's mask.

 

And Metus' mask is interesting... Does it really abruptly end like that on the bottom? Probably. :P

I have been neglecting this for, well, over two months, but I am finally back. But not on a Monday. Because Mondays suck. And because I happened to finish my mask today.

 

I have here today another Hau (LEGO was prolific with these), this one was worn by Toa Lhikan (who is awesome because he rides a Kikanalo).

Its an upgrade on the original Hau. It manages to retain the signature style, but makes it sleeker, more refined, and more gold
