Villages of Mata Nui

Here are 6 sketches from 2000 of the villages of Mata Nui. Trying to depict how the Matoran are living in the different areas of the island. Ta-koro is lying under the crust of the lava by a river of floating lava, the huts have shape like small volcanoes. Po-koro has rounded cell shaped huts made out of sandstone. Ko-koro lies by a cliff splitting a giant glacier. Le-koro has giant hanging plant structures attached to a tall cliff. Onu-koro has giant sphere shaped caves. Ga-koro is a floating village in the northern bay.

  1. last year i was really excited when Templar Studios released some of their artwork and sketches from the Mata Nui Online Game.

    I really enjoyed how the world of bionicle and the island was explored overtime, and it's probably the single greatest thing that Lego ever did after the toys themselves.

    Out of curiosity, did you collaborate with Templar on designs for the villages or other fundamental parts of the game?
