Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

I believe it said Xaos on the wings of his YF-29. Near as I can tell from this , I think you're right. At least, there are no NUNS markings I can see on it, and those markings on the leading edge of the wing, in between the main body and the engine pods, look like they say "χάος", which would be th...

Re: Your favorite "frankenstein" machines?

I admit, I got a chuckle out of the short-lived "Zeta Zaku" in ZZ.

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

I'm gonna have to look into that fic. Might give me ideas as well, since it's a plot bunny I've been pondering for a while.

Glad you like them.

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

On a whim, I recently did a recolor of the RX-160G Byalant Isolde , using a color scheme closer to that of the original Byalant/Byalant custom. Hadn't posted it here, so I figured I might as well. I also revisited those pics of Four I'd done a little while back(see the previous page), to take a look...

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

Yeah. One thing I also like is that the blue creates a more continuous look to the waverider mode compared to the black. The black-and-red shield works with the original Zeta because its binders are the same color, so the entire underside is black and red in Waverider mode. But on this one, the blac...

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

No problem. I went ahead and edited my previous post, but just in case, here's the Nemo in G vs Z Titans colors , plus a black variant I'd also done, which I found, cleaned it up just a bit and reuploaded it. And now, for some new-ish stuff, one thing I wanted to try to do was to give that "ZZII" ed...

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

I think I prefer the ZZII to either the ZII or the ZZ as well, but that's primarily because I've never been terribly fond of the ZZ, which almost feels like a technological step backwards from the Z to me, moving to an unnecessarily complex multiple-module construction as opposed to a singular unit....

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

And on the subject of recolors, on a whim I did the same three color schemes on the MSZ-008X2 ZZII from BFT: Island Wars

AEUG colors
Mobile Suit mode
Waverider mode

Titans(blue) colors
Mobile Suit mode
Waverider mode

Titans(black) colors
Mobile Suit mode
Waverider mode

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

I got the idea from Episode 1 of Z, which is called "The Black Gundam" - meaning that although the Titans-color MkII is two-tone dark blue in animation, it's actually supposed to be black. And I figured I'd do ZZ to see what it looked like. I do agree that black looks more intimidating, but I actual...

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

Thanks. In between rewatching Z Gundam again, I played a few rounds of Gundam vs Zeta on my aging PS2(yes, I still have a PS2, and it still works), and I got the idea to fiddle around with doing a recolor of the Titans Color ZZ Gundam . I also did a minor variation of the same in black , along with ...

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

ORX-005 Gaplant edit. Started off as just a recolor into a two-tone blue color scheme rather than the original green-and-blue. Then I had the idea to tweak it to see how it would look with a EFF-style visor rather than/covering the mono-eye.

I think it turned out all right.

how many MS's does that Alexandria light escort ship have and where is the hanger and catapult ?
Not sure about how many, but probably around 6 to 8 at the most. The hangar is in the front section of the ship, with the catapult hatch in the bow.

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

Glad you like them. I also recently did this , which takes that land variant of the Alexandria and converts it back into a spaceship. I see it as a light escort ship - low mobile suit capacity compared to an Endra, but a fair amount of firepower for its size. I also went back and edited that Tivvay-...

Re: Gundam Breaker Battlogue

We have a PV! Not bad. I absolutely hate that SF variant, but that's mostly a visceral reaction to the fact that it's basically a combination of my two least favorite main-series Cosmic Era designs ever. As far as the others, most of them are kinda "meh" for me. Helios and the D-Hell variant are ki...

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

Yeah, there were Titans Alts of all the AEUG models, and vice-versa. The Z and ZZ had Gundam MkII-style two-tone dark blue color schemes, and the AEUG Gaplant has a red-and-white color scheme that looks a lot like the Z-Plus A1 demo colors I chose to go for a Psyco Gundam-inspired color scheme becau...

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

Probably. It's a simple enough matter of transplanting the redesigned cannons onto the Endra hull and removing the extra cannon. Might give it a shot over the weekend. In the meantime, just a random thought that occurred to me last night: Zeta Gundam(Wave Shooter variant) in Psyco Gundam-inspired co...

Oh. They really do look tiny. Snort. On another note, the Zeonic green of this version really lets that Zeon Emblem on the prow of the ship to pop out. Never even noticed the original having it till I saw your take on this and checking the original lineart. Yeah, they are. At some point I plan to g...

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

Four of them are on the side of the upper hull, midway between the two new beam guns. Two are on the front section, and one is towards the back, aft and slightly above the new gun. They’re a little on the small side because the pic I took them from was smaller than the base pic of the Tivvay and I g...
