Herald of Shadow by Ferain Herald of Shadow by Ferain
Taking a break from the schedule of personal characters to put in a request that's been waiting in line for quite a while but got delayed due to procrastionation and schoolwork piling up.

Anyway, this is Heuani, Makuta's top-lieutenant in the RPG and as evil as you could possibly imagine.

About:
PS CS4
Wacom Cintiq
~30h (Far too long!)

Enjoy =)

"Well well well, the great commander has come to finish me himself..."

This style is incredible with the sort of living armor with the mechanical muscles and stuff showing in places

were you inspired by iron man?

Thank you. I wasn't referencing the Iron Man suit though, this style is more of a blend of the Lego sets and Movie Designs, while throwing in a lot of human anatomy for gameplay reference reasons. I am actually thinking about going for a less human look in future artworks.

Tis' a pretty cool scene, what with an evil Toa and the Rahkshi and the shadow cuffs(something I didn't catch until I zoomed :P); and I like how serpent-like the Rahkshi's heads look.
I'm not a huge fan of the long torsos on the Rahkshi, and I wish they had those big feet like in the sets, but I can appreciate their looks as they are. The red Toa looks a little plain, but I imagine he's been disarmed and I do like how he's leaning forward a little, like he's out of breath or maybe even hurt. And Heuani.. wow. Black as the shadow of his heart. Got to love that mask.

Also, I like how the foliage looks. The leaves on that one plant look nice in the light, which seeps in naturally through the trees..

Marvelous work.

Thanks!

If I were to draw the Rahkshi again I would redesign them as well to be honest. It's not a red Toa btw. It's Kapura and he's a Matoran ^^


Glad you like it!

Y'know they never did explore the concept of a rogue Toa or a Toa that had joined up with Makuta...and Heuani looks like a Toa...brilliant work

Ahkmou was going to be a Toa of Shadow in 2008, but it was scrapped for some reason. He would have been the counterpart to Takanuva.

so we got Heuani as the top-lieutenant, and Vylos as the adviser and most trusted to Teridax. a bit of small competition here XD

This picture is so amazing you got Nuju Metru to act like something other than an evil, heartless dictator.

Don't know why I'm replying to it here as opposed to BZP, but here I am... Anyway, this is absolutely amazing. I... can't find any other words to describe it. It's just so... perfect. Oh, another word. Okay, I'm out of words now. XD

Absolutely love the way you draw these characters. So organic, yet there's little mechanical details here and there to make them look awesome.

Very cool... Interesting take on the Rahkshi. For some reason, I can't help but feel it looks funny, because the Rahkshi are usually hunched over along their whole body, and here you have their torsos stark straight like a person's. It's... odd. But that's just my taste.

This is beautiful, the colouring and shading is just perfect, very sensitive. This along with Bionicle characters rendered in such stunning art; is truly awe inspiring. I wish they had had this quality of Art :')

Especially like the Rahkshi legs and head :D

DAT ZOOM FACTOR. I love how I can go in that far and see what incredible detail you've gone into, from the scratches in the masks, to the Krataa's teeth. Your art, it makes me swoon. <3
