I thought I'd load some of my old stuff people might enjoy. Whoever visits will at least have a better idea of what I really do.

This was kind of my own personal mesh that I made in my mind a while ago... Whenua said that the Onu-Metru Archives housed a specimen of every creature ever known to exist (LoMN)... and I remembered that Mata Nui had its own Kraata 'archive' in Po-Koro (Comic #13)... From images we'd gotten there, combined with knowledge and ideas I had... I kinda came up with this idea in my head.

It's probably one of my favorite things I've ever made. Probably the only really successful attempt at colored pencils, or background for that matter.

Who is the Matoran? I don't know. You name him.

Does the perspective make sense to anyone? I've been around 50/50 on who got the scenery and who didn't. He's in a hole and there's a huge chasm... on each side of which is mostly specimens in containers, but every few spaces there are holes accessible from the outside, in which are stored writing... one of which the 'camera' is in... yeah I don't like explaining. Blah.

He's not keeping, he's browsing. Like a library. :)

You may be thinking of the Great Archives of Onu-Metru, which had some public areas and some employee-only areas.
This was something of my own creation, somewhat of a mesh of the Great Archives, the Bohrok Nest, and the Great Mine - meant to be on Mata Nui. It isn't canon.

ooohh. ok. Pretty neat idea, a public archive.

Where on the island is it located, and which island? Metru Nui, Mata Nui, or Voya Nui? Or was it possibly located in Mahri Nui?

I'd imagined somewhere below ground in Onu-Wahi (Mata Nui).

It looks like there are tiny Matoran in two of the holes in the wall

Interesting idea. I like the look of the matoran, and the storage space's silhouettes are an interesting detail. I wonder, though, why a Le Matoran's doing archive work instead of someone who spends most of their time in caves or underground like an Onu Matoran does. Or did. Whatever.

I talk too much, and this is pretty cool. :)
