If the sun were a monster intent on destroying the world this is what I imagine it would look like.
About this creation
Helios will feature prominently in a future episode of NNN. I stuck her in the background of one of the shots in the latest episode, see if you can find her.
Here's a little backstory I made for her. "Back at the dawn of time, Helios was trapped inside the Figurian Sky after an epic battle with Zundar Silverspine. Ever since, she has begrudgingly provide Figuria with light and warmth."
Some of the inspirations for Helios are SMB3 and this Sprite Commercial
She likes to strike dramatic poses
I stole much of the leg design from Tuma.
And here's a shot of the back so you can see how the flames are held on.
This model has been in the works for almost a full year now. To see all the WIP shots check out the gallery on flickr. And be ever vigilant, you never know when the sun might come for you!
This is wonderful! You might join the Bionicle Century group and post it there. It is a quieter newer Bio Group. So, you will not have to contend with the miles of TFOL conversations filling up your activity section! :)
