"Takua, we're suppose to be at Turaga Vakama's hut."
"Hang on Jaller, I just gotta finish my high score!"
Been awhile, I know, but I managed to work up some energy to make this. Let's take a trip down memory lain, I've been so longing for an escape, an adventure, that I delve back into the early MNOG (Mata Nui Online Game). I smiled as I thought once more on what it would be like to tag along with Takua on some of his adventures, recalling the funny little device known as the book of chronicles he was given from Nokama.
It was then I reflected on how this little computer looked like an odd alien gameboy or one of those hand held game devices from the 80's. On that thought I could see Takua secretly playing games on the device when he's suppose to be chronicling events, Jaller displeased when he discovers Takua's little secret.
I have two versions of the image, one vignette and the full view. I felt the vignette looked better and focused on the scene more. The tree stump, grasses, and characters were drawn on vellum paper, inked, then colored with mostly marker and a bit of colored pencil.
I found lighting to be a bit tricky, still rather rusty in that. After scanning the picture, I added it to a scanned watercolor image my brother made for me, everything melding together nicely in the end.
