I fear we will not get this fight in the Movie, I WANT TO SEE THE GUNDAM ON THE BIG SCREEN!
SharksDen Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2017  Professional Digital Artist
Ye, from the trailers, seems they're replaced by something similar...  but might leave an unexpected surprise?
Dox482 Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2017
True, after all, it is directed by Steven Spielberg. I mean it not like he'll give us something like M. Night Shyamalan's Live action version of Avatar The Last Air Bender. (Shivers) That left a bad taste.
SharksDen Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2017  Professional Digital Artist
Emm, these mechas are not the story core, so I think the replacements will not cause too much interference. But hope the film still keeps some of them.
Mrjojo2908 Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2017

This is amazing! Is there a place to get a full version file of this because I'd love to print it out and frame it in my house. Incredible work!
BaronNeutron Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2016
Anyone else excited for the movie like me?  I am a purist, and movie adaptations often fail, but I remain optimistic. I just re-listened to the  book on tape read by Wil Wheaton and it got me in the RP1 mood.  What do you think of the tasking?  Can Speilberg pull it off?  Will they get even half the licences they need to live up to the book?

that's as badass as I imaged

That is like the best RPO illustration ever! The battle at castle Anorak, with Raideen, Minerva X, Leopardon, RX-78 Gundam, Mechagodzilla and all of the others. The star port in the background, the items... it's gorgeous.
Now for a little bit of illustrator bashing disguised as (allegedly) constructive critic and suggestions:
I love how you put the Star Trek Enterprise ship coming out of the stellar port. However, I would have imagined the gate to be much further away from the planet, like the moon or more. Also, that ship was not explicitly in that scene. The car from Back to the future wasn't either, since Parzival left it home and rode the Marvellian instead. Also, the items shown, while looking awesome, are not taken from the book, but rather seem as coming from some random WoW or Diablo game.
Finally: mechagodzilla is said to ve like three times as tall as Shoto's robot, and there they look about the same size. Specially given the perspective.
As a suggestion/petition: Do Anorak's castle with the forcefield on, right at the time when it is going down, and fit as many avatars in the page as possible. With your drawing skills that would be epic!
k3ttch Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2016
I'm guessing Parzival/Wade isn't the only one in The Oasis with a flying DeLorean. It's probably a popular mode of transportation. The same with Constitution-class starships. The items in Wade's inventory include Dante's guns from DMC, the dagger from Prince of Persia, and possibly Ultimate Thor's Mjolnir. 

Agree with the scale being off though. But I'm guessing it was the only way to get Mechagodzilla to fit in the frame.

Hi, is there any chance of getting a higher res version of this for an A3 poster? Ideally without the text at the bottom.

What would it cost?!

This is freaking EPIC. It perfectly captures the moment just before Wade transforms into Ultraman.
