Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Mecha Thread Mk I

I just had an interesting realization earlier today while rewatching select clips from the series. Per episode 12, Grassley's Antidote technology as equipped in the Beguir-series mobile suits, is effective against GUND Format up to Permet Score 3 - when I-forget-her-name who pilots the Lfrith Ur(at ...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

Same here. I actually quite enjoyed the episode overall. I was rather surprised when Vim Jeturk decided to take a mobile suit out himself, though it was nice that he seemed to be at least a decently skilled pilot. Doesn't make me dislike him any less than I did, but it was still interesting...and th...

Re: Dark Duel's Shop-Fu and assorted artsy stuff

So, I did a thing. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/52615407107_00b55f9f79_b.jpg I wanted to see how it looked if I swapped the Aerial Rebuild's faceplate for the original's. I tried and failed to do the same with the torso, so I had to leave the original torso on here. On a whim, I also recolore...

Re: Dark Duel's Shop-Fu and assorted artsy stuff

Probably because I used pre-existing character art from a different character to put it together(in this case, Mudie Holcroft. I've done more "alt universe" expy versions of that character than almost any other except Four Murasame. I think it's because I just like the character design). I...

Re: Dark Duel's Shop-Fu and assorted artsy stuff

That's an interesting question, actually...I'm not sure it'd look all that different from the current stock Demi Trainer though - considering that, judging from the aforementioned Heindree Sturm relative to the Heingra, or the Beguir-Beu compared to the Beguir-Penthe, MS tech doesn't seem to have pr...

Re: Dark Duel's Shop-Fu and assorted artsy stuff

Somehow it'd be really hilarious if it turned out the original Helmwige had a Sanger/Wodan style pilot at the helm in the Calamity War Yeah, that would be pretty damn funny. Ooh this is nice to see XD Glad you like it. My idea is that it's a refurbished salvage job with newer weapons acquired throu...

Re: Dark Duel's Shop-Fu and assorted artsy stuff

I suppose I could have worded that better. By "non-Gundam" I meant mobile suits that *aren't* Gundams - like the Heingra and the previous one I did, the Helmwige - as opposed to actual Gundams, which have made up the lion's share of the editing I've done lately.

Re: Dark Duel's Shop-Fu and assorted artsy stuff

Continuing with custom stuff of Mobile Suits other than Gundams, this time it's a custom CCP-068 Heingra, using some parts from the CFP-010 Heindree and the Heindree Sturm. Color scheme inspired by the Duel Gundam. I went ahead and did two separate loadouts: A close-quarters loadout optimized for on...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Mecha Thread Mk I

That is pretty interesting. I like the idea that it was built to be (1) as simple as possible, and (2) designed to support modular optional parts and armaments. If I were to guess, the new Lfrith's are built by Shinsei, so the reason they're blockier and look nothing like the Lfrith is due to the li...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

Aerial doing most of the heavy lifting was actually fairly predictable given that it’s the only machine the protagonists have that isn’t hopelessly outclassed by Grassley’s state-of-the-art mobile suits. So it didn’t actually bother me all that much. As for Aerial itself… The duel against Pharact al...

Re: Dark Duel's Shop-Fu and assorted artsy stuff

Thanks. Just did another one that's been on my mind for a while, but pivoting back to IBO this time. This is one I've been wanting to do pretty much since the Helmwige Reincar was revealed, but never got around to doing until just recently: Helmwige in Thrudgelmir-inspired colors(Front and Rear view...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

Yeah, they really don't look anything like either the Lfrith or the Lfrith Pre-Production Type. They almost look like entirely different mobile suits, with a Gundam-type head plopped on. I'm not a fan of either one, personally.

Re: Dark Duel's Shop-Fu and assorted artsy stuff

So since we have(on the official site) new lineart of the Gundam Aerial with its Mirasoul Flight Unit, I figured I'd see what that would look like recolored to match the main body

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

Okay, that was gratifying as all get out to watch. As much as I like Pharact as a design, after he ruthlessly cut Guel's borrowed Dilanza to ribbons previously, it was intensely satisfying to watch Elan find himself on the receiving end of a comparable whupping. I kinda feel bad for Guel after what ...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

Well, that was interesting. I have to admit, it's not an especially creative direction to take with the character, nor all that surprising, but it was pretty well done. Pharact's début was something I've been looking forward to for a while, and it certainly did not disappoint. Looking forward to wha...

Re: Dark Duel's Shop-Fu and assorted artsy stuff

I think I remember that. I think I've also seen a version of the 78-02 from Origin that had no V-Fin, just had two antennae on the back of the head. Might require some surgery on the lineart if I can do it. In the meantime, I've done a pair of the RX-78-02 this time, in RX-78-3 colors. Standard load...

Re: Dark Duel's Shop-Fu and assorted artsy stuff

I did another thing. This time, it's The Origin 's RX-78-01, in a color scheme inspired by the MSV RX-78-1 . The base image is a modified version of RX-78-02 lineart I found on GWiki. I also did a variant that has both beam sabers instead of the shoulder cannon . Got one or two ideas for RX-78-02 al...
