Tenius finds... somebody. by NickinAmerica
Tenius finds... somebody.
Is it Axonn? Maybe, maybe not... could just be one of his species. Either way, these Matoran have seen better days.

Not to toot my own horn, but... I think the panels that feature Tenius in this place in the final chapter are some of the best I've done so far with this series. They're the most simple, but they're just so atmospheric. It probably helped that I was listening to stuff like www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYg2in… while coloring this.

Anyhow, that's it for today.

Bionicle- Nova Orbis- Mystery- Chapter 21
Sorry today's upload is so late. Had to tend to my old man's garden for a coupla hours halfway through finishing this.

The twists just don't stop... I hope it's not getting to be too much, but we are in the final chapters of the first story arc.

I love the scenes where Ahkmou's exploring the old Matoran... whatever this place is. This music's pretty fitting for it. www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYg2in…

And yeah, it turns out Fa-Matoran and Toa of Magnetism ARE still a thing... kinda. You'll see.

So yeah... lot stuff to digest, in this one. I should have this wrapped up in three or four more chapters, including the final battle with Ultio himself, so you won't have to wait too long for things to start making sense again.

No, wait... when have they ever made sense?

Bionicle- Nova Orbis- The 'Mechanicles' by NickinAmerica
Bionicle- Nova Orbis- The 'Mechanicles'
These look pretty familiar, huh? No, there is no Hero Factory in the Nova Orbis story. I basically just made the Mechanicles look this way to differentiate them from the more traditional-looking Toa, and put a somewhat sinister twist on this building system that I actually quite enjoy.

For those who are wondering, yes, it is possible to make the middle one's build with Drilldozer's chest piece, and one of the wider, pointier shells squeezed in around the belly. You can even put one of the "villain cores" over it... which I probably should've done, in fact.

I also thought it would be interesting to give these guys colors that we haven't seen on these pieces yet, such as sand red and sand green. There will be more Mechanicles to see in the future. They're just part of my Bionicle headcanon, now.

Here's the chapter these appear in, along with even more outlandish things. >> Bionicle- Nova Orbis- Mystery- Chapter 20 by NickinAmerica

That's it for today.

Bionicle- Nova Orbis- Mystery- Chapter 20
The twists just keep coming.

I wasn't planning on revealing one of the "others" this early, or at least like this, and... man. I guess the cat's out of the bag. The mystery of Nova Orbis is ruined, just like that. This is what its natives look like. Some of them, anyway.

Even so, we still don't really know anything about this new race. Are they the Great Beings' species? Are they some distant evolution of them? Are they one of their creations? How long have they been around? Who is this man?

We'll at least be able to answer that last question, next time. Wooooooot~

I'm also going to be uploading some new content delving into this race a bit in the coming days, after finishing another commission. I may be breaking new ground by introducing a race like this...? Maybe? We'll see how it goes.

$10 Commission- Barakus for Crp11 by NickinAmerica
$10 Commission- Barakus for Crp11
Full body shot, no background. I have another one of these coming right up for another buyer.

This guy was pretty tough to recreate in this art style. After a while, I just started messing around, trying to make all the different pieces with their own different design sensibilities match and flow, to make them look like they all very well belonged to one thing. In the end, I think I did... okay, though I'm really not pleased with the mouth. Those teeth were the absolute hardest part of the whole thing to draw.

I don't really know what Barakus' powers are, so I just drew him standing menacingly, little flakes of the ground coming off as he stamps his feet. The color scheme was kind of all over the place, but I'm kinda glad, as it provided a challenge, to try to even everything out like so.

I just hope it was worth it.

Barakus belongs to :iconcrp11:

That's it for today. If you wanna commission me to draw one of your characters similarly, go ahead and send me a note about it.

$5 for a bust
$10 for a full body shot
+$10 for a background
+$10 for each extra character featured in the same piece.

Feedback is appreciated.

Since I'm in the mood for drawing Bionicle stuff lately... may as well make a few commissions while I'm at it. If you have an original character you'd be willing to pay, say, $5-$10 for, I'll do it.

Also, new chapter of Nova Orbis later today.

If you have the time between writing fan comics, you should check out the website, Writing.com.

Want my advice? After a short time, the server volume is going to kick you out of the interactive stories. Bot only for a little bit. So you need an account to prevent that.

Hello Nickinamerica, I have a question. I've seen your walkthrough of the Mata Nui online game, and you're very well versed in Bionicle lore, do you think that you'll ever do a series on Bionicle?

Like a retrospective on the various series from the Toa Mata up to the final battle with Teridax, with information on each arc and your opinions on them.

I know that you're busy with the Nova Orbis comic at the moment, so I'm not expecting any major projects aside from that for the near future. But is it something that you would ever consider doing?

I've considered it. I do want to try something like that at some point, but... I just don't think I have time for it.

Ah, that stinks. Ah well, I've still got your awesome comic to sate my love for Bionicle until the new line comes out in 2015. Great work on that by the way, you put as much love into that as Greg Farshtey put into his work for Bionicle.

I wonder, nickonaquamagna, do you get inspiration from both U.S and the classic anime style to do your illustrations?
