Zeras Wars: Space Battle - 01 by shanku Zeras Wars: Space Battle - 01 by shanku
Version Final 1.0

[Description]
This is a scene of where the METATECH Federation and the ZERAS Foundation battled in space. Not specific timeline as to when it had happened however. The METATECH Federation's mech units, MT05-0614 (Red), clashes into battle with the ZERAS Foundation's WarCarrier - which has deployed their mech units, ZRX-07 (GreyBlue), to defend the warcarrier.

[User Comments]
This is a piece that I've been working on for around 2 weeks of time or a bit more. Spending a couple of hour each day into dedicating into this piece. I feel relieved that I've finally completed it. It has been around 2-3 years since I've really CGed anything due to the fact that I was very discouraged on how it turned out back then. Now, I'm happy that I've finally managed to achieve more than I had previously expected and it gave me hope to continue CGing.

I've came up on the designs of the mechs myself, and did some research in which you would recognized that it would resembles to Front Mission, Gundam - to some people it would look like prolly Transformer and/or WarHammer. Anyways, I've taken noticed during my coloring session that I came to understand a lot more about a couple of mistakes and fixed them - such as the mech design, thrusters, gun, shield, armor, etc.

I didn't particularly followed anyone's style, I just went in and draw + color. I had use reference to a good couple of tutorials in such as how to start coloring, starfield, planets, etc. But overall, I'd like to thank my friends for encouragements and kepts me going and improving/fixing the mistakes. *hugglez Sleepycat (net buddy) for getting my started and kept encouragements and for the critiques* *tackles TenAJs (net buddy) for the critiques* ... also thanks to others that comes by and have a look at my work progress in the "SCRAPS" section and giving me encouragements and critiques either through DA or MSN. XD

Oh! The two mechs in the front are special prototypes. I hope I'll get to CG another one of them again with much greater detail. Another point, I need to remind myself to color this at a greater resolution - cuz I colored it at the current resolution that I've uploaded ;o;

Thank you guys! (^o^

That is incredible. At first glance, before i really studied the pic, it looked like it was Freedom and Justice from Gundam Seed. The color schemes seem to match, and that was how i made that mistake. But the details are incredible. I love it.

Freedom and Justice? Hmm.. Gundams has different parts than this mecha. LOL, but yea, most of the mecha has resemblence to each other in either ways. Thanks! (^^

hey man this is really nice ^_______^ i like the whole composition and coloring. if there's one crit i'd probably suggest that you could make the laser shots and energy weapons even brighter to make them really contrast w/ the rest of hte background, kinda like star wars ship laser battles hehe

actually i think ur right some of the laser fire would look dimmer further away, maybe you could show depth by having some of the lasers being fired closer to the viewer brighter
