Corpus Rahkshi - Kat by 0nuku
Corpus Rahkshi - Kat
Kat (short for Catatonic) is a female Rahkshi of Fear and Hoto's closest friend in Corpus Rahkshi. She's played by UltimoScorp on BZP. The odd weapon in her hand is Scourge, an Urumi Sword (that I had never heard of before this game), something between a sword and a whip, that she can control with her mind. Kat is a good tactician and a responsible leader.

This probably took me way too long, first to figure out what "black tribal markings like the shadowy tendrils of Makuta" look like (which were probably better interpreted in UltimoScorp's art), and then trying to find a decent pose. I'm fairly happy with how she turned out, and I hope I did her justice, as she's been so nice to my characters. :)

Corpus Rahkshi - Abyssium
Here's some more Corpus Rahkshi fanart. After I posted my previous Fang and Tube, a few other players asked for their characters. One of them was avmatoran's character, Abyssium, a Rahkshi of Darkness. He's a fairly new character and I can't say I've had much interaction time, so I don't know what kind of character he is, but I can say he looks pretty awesome. I don't know where most of the design came from, but it was pretty cool. I hope to do a few more of these.

He kind of reminds me of the Faction Logo from Eclipse, just for those from LNA.

Corpus Rahkshi - Hoto by 0nuku
Corpus Rahkshi - Hoto
This is Hoto, another character of mine from Corpus Rahkshi. She's a blind Rahkshi of Dodge who uses a combination of her powers and a sort of echolocation to get around. Here she is, depicted performing one of her favorite activities: running through the halls of the Academy at top speed, relying on her Dodge powers to not hit anything.

This is also my first attempt at doing something with realistic shading and no linework. I've had enough art classes to have a pretty good idea of how light works, but realistic shading is such a pain to do (I don't know how many hours this took, but I'd say somewhere around 12-15). It would be great to get some feedback from those who are more experienced. If there was one thing I regret, it would be doing it at such a small size, and in the future, I will make them bigger.

Hoto was hatched blind, but her "father" Makuta allowed her to live as an experiment to test how the new, more intelligent Kraata would adapt. Outside of the hatching chamber, she met Fang, who helped her modify her armor to implement a system to make her joints click as she moves, allowing her to "see" with echolocation. The travelling group she left with abandoned her on the way to the Academy, and she has spent a long time trying to find her way, encountering many things along her travels. She's generally upbeat and fun-loving, never allowing her disability to get in her way, but she can be emotional when under stress.

Masters - Round 1 by 0nuku
Masters - Round 1
I was tired of seeing all these excellent 2015 Bionicle Toa sketches and thought I'd upload some of my own. These two were actually drawn from the leaks we got before the final announcement, and I was still under the impression they were Toa Nuva, thus the Nuva symbols (which actually look pretty good). I tried to give them more active poses as well, with Pohatu running like we all know him to, and Gali swinging her big ol' ax at something (probably a poor Skull Spider).

I always thought how Pohatu wielded the boomerangs looked ridiculous (although more practical for throwing), so I thought it would look better like this. Once I get him, I'll probably slip in some Technic parts to connect it like that. I also gave him foot additions! :D

I actually really like how Gali's mask turned out. It's a bit different from her final mask, but smoother and sharper. I couldn't figure out anything to do with the legs, so I went with something reminiscent of her Mata form. Still not entirely happy with it, but I want to redraw these two now that we have reviews and official images out (as well as the official story).

Corpus Rahkshi: Fang and Tube by 0nuku
Corpus Rahkshi: Fang and Tube
IAmUltronSix recently started up a fantastic text-based RPG on BZPower called "Corpus Rahkshi." In the game, Kraata are becoming smarter (for no reason apparent to the Brotherhood of Makuta), and developing personalities. The Makuta put all the new Rahkshi into what equates to a high school to watch what happens. There's assignments ("assassinate" a fellow student and ruin Christmas so far), factions ("Phogen's Heroes" is by far the most prominent), and lots of fun characters.

Here's two of my characters I doodled up and quickly colored in. On the left is Fang, a Rahkshi of Plasma who has decided he doesn't like what's going on at the school and tries to get in the way every chance he gets. As seen by the headplate charred by a Lightblaster, he doesn't usually think things through and usually fails. He's cold and distant most of the time, but when he gets angry, he can be fierce and unrelenting. He wields a modified heat-resistant broadsword he nicknamed "Venom" that he channels his Plasma abilities through to help it melt through most substances, including Rahkshi armor.

On the right is Tube, a natural follower. They've decided they are utterly useless and defenseless on their own (being a Rahkshi of Slow, that's fairly reasonable), so they bond to the first "evil mastermind" they find with unfailing devotion. Currently, they are serving Chekquars, a Rahkshi of Darkness and "Mastermind-in-Training." Tube is excitable and naive, and a bit thick at times, but they will do anything they can, including die, to serve their master. They wield a home-made mace that is constantly falling apart.

My last character, Hoto, a blind Rahkshi of Dodge, is still being worked on, but I can assure you, she is looking beautiful!

Aww, thanks. :) I had a lot of fun with it, and winning was just icing on the cake. Now I just need to make a ban hammer. :D

Well you could do one similar to Ekimu's (almost called him mata-nui) hammer in the animation

That's probably what I'll end up doing, but with a few add-ons to make it more unique and more like a big hammer worthy of Tohu.

He's my favorite of the 2015 Toa and your designs look great. The masks look perfect, the decals are copied well, and the backgrounds look awesome and appropriate. Thank you for doing the Toa justice!
