2 More years. Now a joyful father of two...just hardly committed any time to paint. Still, managed to pick up my Intros and spent about 2 hours playing with painting this mech. Still rough but I'm liking where it's going. Hope you like it too!

CAN'T BELIEVE it's been 2 years since I last updated this drawing!!! Ahhhhh!!!
This is like the never-ending drawing for me! :P
The progress, as slow as it is...is that I've added some preliminary grey-scale shading. Probably good enough for black-and-white Manga quality...but I'd like to push this further and hopefully see it become a full colored, detailed painting :D Your prayers over my progress would be highly appreciated XD XD

Here's the latest update on the Suppressor's development. Based upon the last sketches, where most of my design decisions were made, I noodled in the details, particularly section lines and "between the creases" stuff, into the line drawing. Feeling pretty good at this point as to where this battle robot is going. I also flipped the image horizontally just to double check the perspective work on this robot - it's a great way to check whether a drawing looks right or needs adjustment. And all this just in time for Thanksgiving too haha!

Happy Thanxgiving to y'all and stay tuned for further developments!

Hi folks! It's my birthday! And just so happen, I've made some progress on the last sketch which I'm excited to share with you!!!

I've refined a bit the 1st rough sketch you saw in the last edition. One great challenge was to determine the shape of the Suppressor's frontal legs. I'm trying to steer away from being too extreme on boxiness and "speed-form-ish", both of which are commonly found on most American Comics and Sci-Fi concepts. In short, I want to achieve a ergonomic, yet functional look and feel. And I still want it to feel "well protected".

This unit, called "Suppressor" is a autonomous robot that is made to "hold down" any position with heavy armor, massive fire power, controlled by a powerful AI with sophisticated battle awareness.

It is heavily inspired by 1) IDF's Merkava program and 2) Ghost In The Shell's "Tank". Equipped with an adapted variant of Israel's renown Iron Fist APS, the head-mounted 105mm smoothbore gun is extremely nimble at detecting, targeting and neutralizing any incoming threat, including RPGs, artillery rounds, vehicles and armed personnel.

Its greatest weakness is that it carries very limited ammunitions. Although it carries the battle proven APAM rounds, only 3 live rounds are ever carried at one time. It also stores an additional 7 more APAM rounds.

After the destruction of Kashgar Hive, a full plan to clean sweep the remaining hives on earth is initiated. Unknown TSFs sighted in battlefield either affiliated by a country or some of them are mercenaries sporting new tech from companies.

Type-97U Fubuki an upgraded version from Japan, equipped with thruster on legs powerful enough to make critical turns its armaments consist of large caliber automatic rifle with bipod and long barrel(long barrel can be disengage for high rate fire and close range combat), type 65 PB knife, and type-74 PB short blade. Cockpit is improved thanks to the XM3 OS now you can pilot with just pajamas and do a barrel roll as much as you want.

slightly modified Heavygun I like the new era in UC you can see the advancement of mobile suit, miniaturizing and employing new technologies. The idea is cool in my opinion, it makes them lighter and faster just like in mobile suit gundam victory anime.

Hi all! sorry for my long absence here on DA.

I bought "Front Mission Evolved" last week and it is awesome but the campaign so short. I like the mech "Wanzer" designs and the possibility to create your own compilation.

Well, this was my inspiration for this fanart. :)

my take on redrawing Destiny Gundam using my own style, mostly proportional redraw although there're also severall mechanical redesign.

Destiny Gundam originally made by Kunio Okawara, and all right to Bandai, Sunrise, & Sotsu Agency

Done, done, DONE!

After like 2~3 Months of on and off raging (because of the wing construction and because I was working off a 12.1" monitor for 1 month)

It's FINALLY finished.
