Pretty much a mix of Lancelot's and the original Vincent prototype. One forearm has a shield, the other arm has a version of the Elbow Slam of Death (forget the technical name for it) that the Vincent had.

Anywhooo...
Back to Gundam, with RX-0 Banshee recolor - Unicorn Mode.
A color study for my MG Banshee, which I have now built with that exact color scheme. Sort of - it's not actually complete yet. Will let y'all see it once it is.
Anyway, I was going for something evocative of the RW-01 R-Gun from SRW, but with less white and more dark blue. Went through probably seven or eight iterations before settling on this one.

Plan on doing Destroy mode lineart as well eventually; just haven't got 'round to it yet.

EDIT: Destroy Mode is now done.


Thoughts?

Because the GM III wasn't awesome enough already
Blue paint scheme, I doubled up the chest sensors, and gave it enlarged boosters on the back of the legs.

Me likey. If I ever need a grunt for myself at that tech level, this might be it.

Thank you.
Also, GM III in Titans colors
Still has the doubled-up chest sensors, but not the enlarged boosters. Might do that variant later.

MS-06 Zaku II recolor
The bitty thumbnail on the left is apparently early concept art for the Zaku II that I tripped across in another thread.
So I took that slick-looking new lineart of Char's Zaku II from the upcoming The Origin OVA and gave it a paint scheme derived from that concept art. Just for kicks, really.

Thank you.
Here's something else
The Lightning Gundam from the upcoming GBF sequel.
The left pic is the original colors, tweaked a bit for higher contrast.
The one on the right is it recolored in Titans colors.

And, back to the Universal Century, with the XM-07 Vigna Ghina in Black Vanguard Colors.
And here it is again in Dark Tiger Squadron Colors.

Still Universal Century - sort of - but moving a little farther back in time with the RX-79[G]Ez-SR2 Gundam Ground Type Intruder Custom
Basically took the Ez-SR Intruder from GBF Try and modified it slightly so its head more closely resembles that of the Ez-8 using a couple of bits from the Ez-SR Eliminator, then gave it a new color scheme based on a slight modification of the original Ez-8's. With, of course, the obligatory "8-1" chest markings :P

THIS is the original color scheme I did it in, which keeps the Ez-SR's gray rather than the Ez-8's tan, and lacks the 8th MST markings.

A recolor of the GM Powered Cardigan, in the original's orange colors.

A set of G-Arcane recolors that ditch the bright orange. The original with the orange color is on there for comparison.

Much better. I really like the Cardigan, but the yellow I'm not a fan of.

Yeah, that orange Cardigan is awesome, Duel. The orange does give it that industrial vibe I love so much. Funny, I just realized that with a sniper on the team, Yuuma probably likes having his allies in bright colors, to ensure he catches them peripherally when about to snipe.
They don't know the power of a balanced vision.

Maybe
Anyhoo, found new, more detailed and higher-quality lineart of the Gundam MkIII in conjunction with the upcoming 1/100-scale kit, which I fixed up a little bit.
https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3932/154 ... 5cc085.jpg

I decided I don't like the purple, so I did two recolors using the general colors of its direct predecessor, the MkII

Phantom Gundam recolor
Decided to swap the Phantom Gundam's eye-stabbingly bad (IMO) green color scheme for a darker, more muted paint scheme evocative of the Crossbone X2
Mega Shiki recolor
In the original's gaudy-yet-awesome gold/black

Thanks for the head's up. Most, if not all of my custom C.E. stuff was created for my GSD rewrite, so it can also all be viewed at http://gsdestinyaltered.wikia.com

On another note, I went back and re-tweaked slightly my Ez-SR Custom. All I did really was give it a shield.

I revisited the Knightmare Frame "Arondight" design recently, and decided to give it a different head design, which is more inspired by that of the Z-01b Lancelot Club, with a few elements taken from the base Lancelot.

Aside from that one piece behind the horn that looks like it shouldn't be there (Like the horn was copy/pasted over it), it looks pretty good.
