Philippine Jaeger - Datu Aklas by DeivCalviz Philippine Jaeger - Datu Aklas by DeivCalviz
My Jaeger design was based on various Filipino Elements:

- Horns of the kalabaw
- Sleeves from a filipiniana gown
- Elements from the jeepney
- Filipino Flag
- Kris sword
- Igorot shield
- Ifugao Costume Colors

The environment is based on Caramoan, an awesome beach in my country.

_______________________________

I've been joining a lot of contests ever since I started taking art seriously. It has been full of ups and downs and I really enjoyed having a deadline and challenging myself knowing that I am working on something alongside other artists.

After much thought, I believe this will be my last time to join a contest. Life is short and I feel like I still have lots of other ideas in my head that I need to do instead.
Hopefully, I can post more personal IP stuff in the future!

Cheers and hope you enjoy this image!

I like the aspect of a jaeger with a sword and shield and the slight fisheye perspective on this.

it's hard to believe that this didn't make the cut for the semi-finals, but then again this competetion was incredibly fierce. Great job nonetheless. I love the colors and perspective!

So awesome! Loved how you worked in the terno sleeves and the water buffalo horns. I know Datu is "chief" but what is Aklas?

Thanks! I'm glad you noticed my design choices! :)

Aklas means revolt.. The jaeger is mainly color red because in the philippine flag, red means war. So I guess, rising up against the Kaijus? lol

Thanks Drew! I hope I get a place but I'm also aware that contests tend to be unpredictable. XD Still, I'm happy to have finished this piece in time.

PS: Sorry for the delay of update on the commission. I had to finish this first since it was already midway done.

Oh man I’d be shocked if you didn’t place with this. Looks like a movie scene & it’s really dynamic & details are amazing! The perspective is killer too! Either way this is badass! Fingers crossed for you! ;)

& nah don’t be, you had to get this done in time. Our work doesn’t have a deadline. Looking forward to more on them though. ^-^

I really hope I can place in this contest. I decided this would be the last time I would join any contest so it would be a great sendoff for me if that happens. Fingers crossed too!

Anyway, I'll have an update on the commission by tomorrow. Thanks for the patience! :)

I hope so too! Regardless I went through the all the entries & yours was easily one of the standouts & that’s the honest truth. Would definitely be a great sendoff! :D

& awesome. Talk to you then! & no problem. :D
