TAKANUVA by The-HT-Wacom-Man TAKANUVA by The-HT-Wacom-Man
The golden warrior of a thousand suns, also one of my most favorite characters to date.
And yes I'm still alive.

Enjoy!

Well Done.

I liked Takanuva when he became the toa of twilight (darkness and light) towards the end of the original series around 2009. I've always liked the gray armor. This is still really cool. I like the scythe, I wish more toa wielded scythes.

I'm more partial to Toa Iruni during the visorak saga.

Thanks. I always imagined it to resemble a lions head, with it's mane-like protrusions and gaping maw.

Is it just me, or does Takanuva have a beard? :P

Well he WAS the first matoran, after all.

I think there were other Av-Matorans before him also. Several of which are still alive as matorans, but they were trained to subconciously warp people's perception of them, so that they would not appear white & gold. Also, when an Av-Matoran dies it becomes a Bohrok.

No, seriously, he was the first matoran. It's canon, look it up.

Just checked, & you're right.

They should've given bim an older/more mature voice when he turned into Takanuva for crying out loud.

They didn't actually know this at the time. Heck, I think they might not even have decided it yet at the time.

Huuuhhhh this is a very different take from your usual interpretation of Bionicle sets and mechanisms. I'm digging this organic armour look, and I guess it suits Takanuva since he's supposed to be a special snowflake haha. That mask is especially sound, smooth and sharp hehe.

As usual I am mesmerized by your sense of form and volume and shading techniques. The colours are also electric here and makes the whole piece radiate nicely. I would only comment that the shadows are looking just a weeee bit monotone and are kind of pulling the vibrant yellow back too much, and the BG text is a little distracting, but otherwise beautiful job!

Love this, and same for me, Takanuva is one of my absolute fav characters in the Gen1 storyline.

Did you notice that his mask looks kinda like a techno-lion? (AKA Laval)
