The first character is finished. This sure took for-bloody-ever but I'd say it may have been worth it. The other characters should be easier now unless I choose to model a silly huge amount of extra parts.
Mask: Kanohi Anah - Mask of Silence
Tools: Scoped Battle Rifle, Spear/Sword-Hybrid, Ice Pickaxe
Abilities: Increased awareness and vision (Kanohi Anah), Basic Elemental Control (Ice), Cold Resistance, Freeze, Creation of (Ice) objects
Finally got back to making Bionicles again. This project was a crazy idea I had to make myself and a small group of me mates in Bionicle character form.
Here is what I have made so far. Note that although I had a lot of parts already, I decided to remodel all of them for a new joint system I devised just for this project. This will give me some more options when posing and more maneuverability than the regular Lego pieces.
I am once again going back to Bionicles to use as my creative outlet. This time it's an illustrated story for the character I called Ihlire.
So far I've only posted the beginning on ModDB but I will probably be making a page for it on my website as well.
The idea behind this story is to create the back-story for both Ihlire and the later Toa Ihlire while also making illustrations to keep my 3D going.
Here are some illustrations I've created so far.
This 40 cm (15.7 inches) tall warrior queen has taken most of the parts I recently acquired. However I'm quite happy with the result.
Sorry about the crappy picture quality, I still don't have a good camera so I have to do everything with the camera in my mobile phone with which it is always a gamble if the images will come out looking alright or not...
Xali really is a queen, or rather was. She came from an empire now long gone. She has been traveling ever since its fall, never staying in a single place more than a day or a week. She has no companions, no friends and her enemies are all long since defeated.
