man, this thing took just freaking long when i imagine that the plan was, to build this in my three weeks vacation (last year ) and meanwhile a half year is gone since i started the boosterpack
ok, i had a few breaks, one with Renamon and a few others so the pure building time was about two months but also a long time
i have to say that i don't have any clue about Gundam Wing/00/Zero ore whatever which series is called i know about the Gundams and love the mecha design (specially this one because of the wings) but never saw one part so don't bother about the name
ah, big mechas with wings i just love this shit
even the sheets where not the best (they are very pixelized) i'm totally pleased with the result but during the building and right now i can say, it's definitely not a starter model i had to modify a lot of stuff and quite every blue and grey edge is recolored to hide the folding lines but all over is was pure fun and... surely not my last Gundam model the next one is allready planned
damn! damn! damn! as i started this project, i never thought that it will take quite three months to finish
but this whole work with re-coloring from blank sheets to a colored version was totally worth This Gundam is just badass and to call this a SD (super deformed) version is definitely an understatement
with over 400 sometimes really tiny and complicated pieces, i really can say it's nothing for beginners you can see it in the building process gallery and i have to say that too, i printed that thing on A3
the model itself was really cool to build all pieces fit quite perfect together sadly, and that's the reason why the model hold the weapon only one time and in that way, the weapon it's not really designed for the model or rather the hands not for the weapon the hands are based on one piece which is fold to itself just to get the shape of a hand so it's really unstable, think about that when you wanna build that model
now then to the point what you probably all waiting for and to the sad part because this time, it's a bit different the original model as black&white version and a pdo as help file (where i made the screenshot from) is available here but you need a password i can't tell you the password here but think about "from where" you download the model, that's all i can say then my recolored version normally i ask the owner or designer if i can get the permission to share them ->public<- but because there is no way for me to contact "panda" i'm not gonna do that ... by the way asking questions in a private messages is free here on dA maybe you know what i mean
i combined the photos this time because i noticed that there are many fakers and thiefs out there, specially in the gundam scene
but there is only one person, who has that brown desk under each model
feel also free to write a critique would make me happy
Here's the inked version of a new mech that was commissioned by the same person that commissioned the Batmobile mech. This mech is designed to transform.
The head was drawn like it is because this mech is also themed. Instead of Batman, it is Cobra from G.I. Joe! There will be a Baroness figure with the mech! I have already drawn the Baroness and she looks hot
Original creation size is 11" x 17"
The colored version will be in my new art book. The book will be out in October... pre-orders will open in a few weeks.
I did this design years ago for a freelance client. Can't remember who the client was, can't even remember exactly when. I think it might have actually been around 2001, but I put a 2004 copyright note on the artwork. I think the clients' company might have been called SGD. Heck, I can't even remember if I got paid for the work... but I think I did.
This is the back view for the medium federation mech along with half of the supplemental detail drawings. The front view has the other half.
There were 4 mechs in this series. I'll eventually post all of them.
Predator C design alterations, trying to make it less happy fun-time robot and more machine like. This version done in a cleaner illustration style and intended to be modular this one is loaded with as much firepower as able and all the defensive fixin's, plus a system of leg backups.
Commission work for a custom RPG/Boardgame. First official image of the year. From my understanding it's around 36 feet tall, has a cannon and a twin-cell missile launcher. You also heard that right, I do commissions.
Finally finished this Gundam! can't believe I started with this project last year! haha, anyway, I've introduced the "Background colour" to this model because there were some annoying white pieces over the model which would look better with it. Also included the possibility to build Open and/or Closed wings! Test build was made by as well as the photographs! The .rar contains: 9 PDOs, 9 PDFs as well, 21 Pages for the model (If you build only 1 pair of wings)
Well, this is my version of the XXXG-01WK, Also known as Wing Gundam Ka Ver.
The Rar contains: PDOs, PDFs, Photos of the making (as a kind of “guide”), and a personal opinion. Thanks to my friends and family for being there to make everything less boring lol and a Special Thank to all the creators of this Awesome anime.
Hello again! It's been a while. Well, this is my version of the Medabot known as Rokusho. I made this because It was part of my childhood, and I saw the Metabee papercraft long ago, (I think the designer should be more known). Anyhow, I just couldn't resist making it.
Ileman-Loch's 5th generation Light Strike FOIL Aetarius was produced in the same time period the previously posted Ileman-Loch Auaris-SOMR (Special Operations Multi Role) combat FOIL. They both share some slight cosmetic similarities and are both high mobility machines designed for combat operations requiring speed and precision. Beyond that though the Aetarius is more of a workhorse front line machine. Slightly heavier on armor than the Auaris-SOMR Aetarius is quite capable of taking punishment. Aetarius is somewhat of a beefed up high speed infantry FOIL at heart though quite capable with bladed weapons.
The example pictured here is a Polemon machine in service of the Free SOL allied forces that stand in the face of the Siege of the Black Son. It sports pattern breaker on the covering on the limbs and tonal variation breaker on the blue gray body panels. It's carrying an assault stein shettier rifle manufactured by Dies. It's highly likely the FOIL also sports a good deal of Dies parts as well.
The Latin text under the FOIL is actually on the FOIL, placed there by the Pilot and Faedai, it say's, "Reality is an illusion. Awaken from the dream." I also should note the name Aetarius was coined by as a play of Aquarius. He thought the FOIL's legs had a bell bottom vibe so the name kinda spawned from there Also will note there are GenoPeng/Vulne FOIL collabs coming soon
Blown up light boxed pencil thumb with digital inks clean up. Colors in Photoshop CS3. Background "star field" is a copyright free image and the only element I didn't draw.
Things seems to be settling down with my Father doing pretty well so now I can get to some backlog of work. This collaboration piece has been sitting on the back burner for sometime so it's nice to finally finish it.
Originally drawn by the ever talented (Charles Liu) I always loved this unique FOIL design of his. Back when he did this I said I'd do a color version, to which he agreed... unfortunately it kinda got shelved. In any event, now it's done and up it goes I did some minimal clean ups to the original illo in order to open it up for color, along with adding digital inks to pop it a bit, but otherwise it remains the design Charles created originally.
Here's the write up of the FOIL also found on 's original posting: [link]
The Dies-Gund N'vos Tessai CAV FOIL model was jointly developed and manufactured by the Indus based manufacturing corporate entities Dies and the Gund FOILArbeiten plant in the political bloc of Germane. A relatively recent model in the line of FOILs by this collaborative union of two manufacturers (much like the Jiendel Gavil FOILs), the 'Tessai' favors more aggressive pilots with its digitigrade stance and lack of shield. This N'vos Tessai, as shown here, is a stripped down model, thin on armor for extra speed and maneuverability.
This machine is tailored to its pilot, a skilled swordsman with a swift and graceful combat style. The thin armor is a weakness, to be sure, of this otherwise elegant CAV design but an effective FOIL operator can always exploit the advantages over inherent flaws. Even with the thinner armor a CAV FOIL in the hands of a capable pilot and faedi control entity is a dangerous and formidable opponent. The standard, off the factory body, has more armor plates and is a little less maneuverable but still an effective machine.

Another conceptual design/model sheet for the Theos animation project. This fella is actually not some hulking mecha someone rides in it's a bio-mechanical entity closer to a cyborg in some ways but still something quite different. It’s the same race of creature that the little mech in the IO Diner piece is from. These guys are combat machine for a future not really Germany nation called Germane. Clearly I had fun with some WWII aesthetics and cammo patterns but unlike the Sfikas these guys are cell shaded with heavy weathering which is the direction all future designs for this project will head. The hats have a locking snap which can unlock if combat is imminent as the hats are only for formal dress and rank. You can't go around fighting with a hat in your mechanical eye, no? Much of these designs will probably get tweaked even further once we're ready to pitch this show, there's plenty of time as we're in the middle of working on another show project for an ad company in Arizona.
One of my ACs from Last Raven, built with form over function, but yeah. Tried a new way to colour, no lines. Didn't take me as long as i thought it would. About 8 hours over the course of a few days. Lost motivation half way though, then regained it. xD
Also, i didnt feel like reffing constantly, so some of the parts are off.
The 07b-A1, also known as the Gin Matsuba (after the silver/red koi) is the USDF's rapid deployment mobile armour. Designed with diverse deployment capabilities in mind, the Gin Matsuba is capable of transport by sea, land, and air; and can be deployed, combat ready from such, with only limited modification. The 07b-A1 is fitted with a special broad spectrum optical unit and a multi-projectile-threat response device, making it suitable for combat in high target density locations, and because of its diverse deployment capabilities, many special units use the armor as a rapid assault weapon, where it is often seen in the initial attacks and invasions as a key component of larger scale ops. The Gin Matsuba can handle most standard weapons, but has slots for high output energy weapons as well. And with built in anti personal and proximity protection mechanisms, the unit is ready to take on nearly any battle, anywhere, and anytime.
Ok I'm doing a mecha and now I'm stuck. Don't know which concept I should follow. Added a third version, which is B with fast done arms,just for the looks So what do you guys think. A or B or C or get-rid-of-all.
Finally after 4 months of work the PG Zaku was finally completed. The main high light for this build was to try out metallic red high gloss finishing, did not really came out as expected as most of the Red area was not so consistent due to my lack of experience in handling airbrush, some of the parts especially the scratch build leg was repainted around 4 to 5 times due to the unsatisfied result, which lead me to invest getting a better airbrush hand piece.
For this build i have scratch build the back pack and leg armor like the Zaku High mobility type, and scratch build a Gouf type gatling gun on the left arm.
Overall i am happy the build are finally over, now i can move on and work on other things.
This baby was also submitted to Malaysia Mid year competition which is going on now.
Been working on this Gunpla since beginning of this year. My first perfect grade kit, well not actually my own, but it originally belongs to my colleague whom have left it for more than 10 years in his store room un-touch, so I nag him to let me build it and he agrees, and i have all the freedom to modified as much as i want.
After 2 months, i manage to scratch build a new sets of leg armor and new back pack using pla plates, i took the design from Johnny Raiden's red zaku, which looks more meaner compare to the normal zaku, and scrtach building it to a 60 scale zaku was really a challenge, but i enjoy it. All those white area are either scratch build or add on details. i have yet build any weapons for this bad boy, either a big axe or a bazooka.
And news on the next competition are announced on the end of May, it's gonna be exciting, and I am gonna submit this for mid year competition.
The previous unicorn gundam photo i uploaded was pretty fuzzy and blur(i hate photography) so i snap shot another clearer photo of my gundam unicorn.
The gundam itself went through some repair since it's completion, i found out quite a number of the water decals have either fall off or damage, so i repair all the decals with a modeling liquid called MR mark softer and MR mark setter, it kinda help the decals to stick better on the model i really regraded i did not use that magic liquid when i was applying the decals.
overall i really loved how the unicorn came out, the chrome gold was a nice touch, with NU gundam's colors. another thing is i have swap the gundam unicorn's tiny face over from due gundam, now it looks moe like a gundam. I have always wanted the gatling gun kit that can be mounted on the unicorn's arms but sadly i never found any around, but i have made my own beam cannon with some old spare parts and 2 art-line pen, the back pack was modified from oo riser unit with a few booster added to it.
I really would like to build another unicorn gundam in the future and can't wait for the unicorn gundam anime which is coming soon and really hope bandai will come out with more unicorn gundam kits.
my next build will either be a zoid blade liger or strike gundam IWSP. other than that i'm currently working on a lion heart poster now.
