Freedom Gundam: Riparato by sandrum Freedom Gundam: Riparato by sandrum
Cripes, this took longer than I thought! Finally I've been able to repair that awefully chubby Freedom Gundam 3D piece that I made here. It wasn't "bad" but it wasn't all that great either. Anyway, so I've made this freedom so that it would match the strike. I'll wait for any good renders (as usual) until after the Archangel support ship is complete. Then I'll howl away. Almost 33%more polygons in this one too - mostly to make the leg frame.

PS - sorry for the crappy composite. I'm on a crappy workstation at work). :(

Software: Lightwave 8.3 (modelling/ rendering), Macromedia Freehand (logos).

Edit: The stance has been changed.
The bad image edit has been fixed.
The background and credits are altered (though the author is the same... me :D)


Gundam is (c) Sunrise/Bandai/Sotsu Agency

Think you can make something like this in sketchup? IF so, I think you'd be the mecha making the google warehouse with these models

oh no, I have to make critical comments to SANDRUM?! *Sigh* Well, it looks a little too thin, almost like it will break, and its pose just seems really, really odd, stickin' its crotch out for the world to see...or hit. (OOOOOWWW!!) The logo on the wing doesn't make much sense, seeing as it will get cut in half when the wings open. The shoulder armor is just...don't get me started. I'm sorry to be a naysay, but not your best work. Now that you have Strike Freedom done, you can sorta look back at Freedom and fix some stuff so it resembles both Strike and S. Freedom, but right now it's not looking so good.

Sorry if I upset you. It's still alright, on par with some of Ssjellenrad2's work, but I think it could've been better.

P.S. The wording of the logo on the wings is beautiful, it matches Strike Freedom's Liberta Modificia. (or something like that, I can't remember anything too well anymore.)

Since this is opinion, I won't strike it down. But some parts make other look smaller because of the way I scaled them. The head is quite large compared to the body which I've fixed over time. This deviation was almost 2 years ago so I've been able to fix some things since then. It:s actually not thin at all and the strike freedom's legs were started from the legs of this freedom mesh. They're pretty close to the same size at finish. It's very likely that the combination of camera setting/stance/and angle contributed to the thin-looking appearance. The wings dont split off between the black and blue sections so the logo does not split (see this [link]). The shoulder armor I've not met with any problems since this deviation. As it is, I'm fairly happy with the way the mesh came out, but I do appreciate your input.

no offense, you might want to work on the head a little. change the eye color a little, it looks like its part of the Gundam's forehead armor.

This is a great improvement to the other one you gave a link to, by far! Very nicely done. I keep thinking it is a toy/model of some sort when I look at it. heh.

Ya...I couldn't resist commenting on another piece of yours....lol, I think I'll stop now. *sweat mark*

w00t!!! its done XD the redux is done XD yeah i have to admit the design for the HG 1/100 and HG 1/144 is chubby and fat ~__~;; I had to cut some parts to make the legs longer on the kits to make it proportional...didn't have time to make the wings longer 'coz i still ain't got the skills to mod it yet :D lovin' the logo's too bad my printer can't print white ink >_<

still nice work even at a crappy pc...i could only imagine what you could do with your own pc XD

the wings could use more length if you know what i mean :D

can't wait for the final release of the render XD

OT: ever since i played "Rengou Vs ZAFT" on the PS2...i kinda drifted away from the freedom and turned to the justice for some odd reason :D maybe it was becasue i was able to get to the extra stage where you fight 3 strikes...the launcher, alie and sword then being replaced by the freedom w/c litteraly sucked coz it was too damn hard to beat XD

Jeez, it's been years since I've picked up the ol PS2. As far as logos, I think theres a place online where you can submit your logo designs and they can "print" out some decals for your real models... I shalt give the wings a lookover. The old wings were way too small. These new wings are much longer and more slender than the old ones and the angle of the render may throw off the size a bit. I might bring down the angle that they're stored at so that they'll look longer.

:star: Thanks very much!! :D :nod: :star:

Believe me, you deserve more than comments on your works. Just add a scenario in it and sell it by "prints" online here at dA or to your neighbors there. Or try printing it on T-Shirts or make stickers for cars and small stuff, art always have ways to earn money. :D

In my country everybody who have ever seen Gundam SEED and SEED Destiny call him "God!"(It's the same Thai meaning). I wanna know is there a nickname of him in you country? Anyway I think Amuro is stronger than Kira. :)
