Also found this, which I actually did a few months back but never got around to posting.
Slightly customized and recolored Duel Gundam - as usual, Titans/AEUG colors

And speaking of the Titans, here's a little something I whipped up a while back that I just decided to take the time to color:
Alexandria-class (refit) heavy cruiser Iskandriya
Pretty straightforward; It's an Alexandria-class ship, with a rear-facing secondary hangar deck, and a sizable increase in firepower. I cobbled it together from various AoZ ship linearts.
Also found and cleaned up another couple of older pics I'd done a few years back.
Just a slightly different take on the very stripperiffic Mudie Holcroft's uniform; pink and black versions.

Aaand now, we have a customized Blu Duel Gundam, which is probably the version I'll end up using, IF I use it, for GSDA.
And here's a slightly different version.

ZGMF-X56S Impulse Gundam - Silhouette Packs (ver.GSDA)
Okay, so I had some time while some parts I painted for a Gunpla project were drying, so I went ahead and colored the Silhouette Packs from the version of the Impulse that appears in my rewrite.

Not much to say - again, boredom strikes, this time in the form of a Zaku II mod. Nothing too special, just a Zaku II F2 customized with Zaku FS-style head vulcans.


Then there's this Wing Zero recolor, using the MG Proto-Zero lineart:

Might fiddle with that one some more.

Still love this thing
Cobbled that together from pics in the MG manuals in about 15 minutes.

Color study for a custom Wing Fenice mod I want to do. This is just a color scheme attempt, without the mods I want to do. Thoughts?

Oh, and on another note, digging through my old pics archive on my PC, I found this rather crappy set of Code Geass recolors I did years and years ago:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v204/ ... 17d955.jpg

Which inspired me to use more recently-released and higher-quality art to come up with this version of a white equivalent to the Guren MkII (Since I like the color scheme, but hate the stag beetle horn and goofy-looking arm of the Byakuen). No name for this yet:
http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3694/1201 ... 739fb3.jpg

And this complete set of images for a Grail-inspired Lancelot/Vincent variant(a little bit of both), which I christened Arondight:

http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3721/1223 ... 92d30f.jpg
http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2868/1223 ... f4f87f.jpg

Whether I end up doing anything with these designs will...well, will depend on other factors.

Anyone remember in Origin vol5 when they tacked the GunCannon's head onto a Zaku II body and stuck Kai in that after one of the GunCannons got trashed? That thing Kai called the "Cannon Zaku"?
yeah...

I also went back and tweaked that custom Titans version of Mudie I did a while back; specifically the normal suit - basically, just modding it so that she's wearing the helmet.
Thoughts?

Okay, in connection with my recently updating my fic, two new pics:
Athrun Zala, white uniform. He now has his own command - two Nazca-class and a Laurasia-class.
And new art for Meer, too. Yes, it is in fact a modified, sexier version of the outfit Lacus(who IS dead, in this version) wore in the final arc of the series. I did that deliberately, mostly for sheer irony.
Read the chapter and you'll figure out why :P

A simple part swap on the Build Gundam MkII.
I think it looks pretty amazing, myself.
Thoughts?

EDIT: And here's a recolor of the same

Thank you.
On a loosely related note, here's a little something I've been working on

Speaking of the Dork Matter, you know that briefly-seen Complete Form of the PPGN-01 Gundam Amazing Exia - BEFORE Makeover of Evil?
Yo. 'sup?

I think the thread for posting lineart that can be colored is either MIA or buried in some hole that I can't find right now, so I'll just leave this here as I'm sure you can make use of it.

There's even stuff from Build Fighters including the Fenice upgrade that you can color to match the one of regular Fenice if you so choose, and a few characters included among the various series.

Well, thank you.
Still on the subject of "Gundam Meister Tatsuya/Meijin", I did a version with the Meijin Kawaguchi shades.

And STILL on the same subject. Remember the Amazing Exia?
Well, what do you think an upgraded version of that might look like?
Here's my take on it
Colored. Inspired by, fittingly, 00 QAN[T]'s colors, but more from the original concept version than the final.
