Gundam F91 Bust by Tanqexe Gundam F91 Bust by Tanqexe
Started out as a paintchat doodle, then ported over to Photoshop 7 because paintchat timed out. Played around a bit with some brushes...hoping to get better at those texture brushes.

Edit: spyroteknik showed me the nifty unsharpen mask thing...hot damn, it does look crispy o_O

Beautitful painting. I personally think F91 derserve more credit even tough it look a bit like the original gundam (to some people anyway).

This may be a doodle,but it's certainly well done in my opinion.There also needs to be more late UC art,let alone Gundam F91

Yes, I *really* like how it does appear to be battleworn (I mean, Gundams are *war machines*, they are *not* going to be all shiny and stuff! Not if they're USED for their intended purposes, anyways)

Beautiful detail, even though you were only playing with the brushes! >< The texture looks really well done! It's as if you could reach out and feel the gritty-ness of the metal~

Hmm, the unsharp mask version looks a little wierd to me. Especially with some of the detailing around the head and down the side of the chest.. like spots of the 'chipped paint' are floating above the image now. It seems a little TOO crisp ... like you went from low to hi-res or saved it with wierd compression. Then again, this is looking at full view, as it looks nice sized down in the thumbnail.

But that's just me. If you think it look cool, that's what matters. *thumbs up* :)

youve sussed it man, that looks pretty much like peeled paintwork to me, i don't go much further than that texturewise, mine comes out a bit crispier due to the unsharp mask, it loves custombrushes, [link] - easier to explain like this, didnt do much to it, just an unsharp mask at low radius/threshold, high amount, very slight contrast adjustment, makes things pop out at you and go wroooooooaaahrrrww :D although i went a bit overboard hehe, nicely done gundam, menacing :)

Your Gundam art is truly one of the best on all of DA. Always with the masterpieces, great work. Makes me wonder what it would be like if you made your own Gundam fancomic. Keep up the awesome work!

One day I'm going to find you, stick a straw down your ear and suck out all your brain juices in the desperate hope that by consuming those more uber than me I can absorb their power. *shakes a fist*

I think pictures like these, where the machine is drawn weathered and used, are far more enjoyable than the perfect, stock anime pictures. It's the touch of realism.

Excilent work as always. +fav

Yeah, I prefer having my machines a little weathered and roughed up. It's more fun to draw err...paint!

Indeed, it was cancelled because of NGE lmao, on December 28th none the less in 1994, it's my favourite paralell universe story. 08th msteam is my personal favourite for the uc storyline.
