Kopaka Toa of Ice by AndrakaNuva Kopaka Toa of Ice by AndrakaNuva
Considering the popularity of my Bionicle sketches from
highschool. I decided to do a new redesign one of my
favorite childhood characters, Kopaka, to develop a better
digital skill set.

This however turned into a series of bionicle related pieces.
The other 5 Toa redesigns: [link]

My artwork is "head-canon" and any innovations
I make are not meant to anger or upset.


When I was a kid I disliked the movie designs. I always
pictured the Bionicle characters looking tough and realistic.
God forbid I mention Michael Bay but I tried to give the Toa
a movie style makeover with the Transformers movie and
its adult audience in mind.

My take on them was emphasizing the biomechanical.
My definition being "organisms naturally occurring in nature that
evolved resembling machines with a base element of iron, silicon,
or another metal." Much like the Silicon monster in Star Trek.
Evolved rather than being built by another race. Much in contrast
to post 2003 Farshtey canon:

Lol, gotta love head-canon. :D

Kopaka is clearly the... coolest, of the Toa Mata/Nuva.

The only design from the Miramax films I like and dislike are these; I like the way they icorperate the biomechanical aspect. I dislike how it was realized. Does this make sense?
