Leo Army

So, I got a Robot Damashii Leo this week. I used it as reference for a drawing. I really wanted to go for a Gunpla box art style illustration, so I went crazy with the detail. Then I took the drawing and cloned it to make an army :3

This makes me more confident to tackle coloring that Mercurius & Vayeate sketch I did a couple weeks ago.

Gundog

It's not a Gundam. But it is a Gundog.

Ink and marker on marker paper.

Wing Zero Head Sketch

Don't really have any plans to develop this into a full color illustration. When I'm bored I just sketch Gundam heads. The heads and hands are the hardest part of a mecha to draw imo. So that's why I practice them the most.

Mercurius & Vayeate

I fixed the issues on Vayeate this morning. Completely re-drew the legs, re-drew the right shoulder armor, and finished drawing the backpack. On Mercurius, all I needed to do was re-draw the left ankle armor.

Ignore my phone's shadow...

Mercurius & Vayeate

Here's a sketch composite of a drawing I'm working on. I figured it would be easier to draw Mercurius and Vayeate separately and them put them together in the final illustration. This is just a rough mock-up of what the composition will look like. It'll get re-drawn and colored in Photoshop soon. I think it's a halfway decent start. The perspective looks okay on most of the drawing. There are a few issues I intend to fix before I take the sketch into PS.

SD Build Burning Gundam

I'm really excited about Gundam Build Fighters Try and Reconguista in G. I spent the last couple of days working on this SD Build Burning Gundam. Went with a sketchy style for the line art.

GP02A head

The last couple of days, I've been working on a sketch of GP02's head. Total work time about 30 minutes I guess. I got the sketch looking the way I want and I'm planning to paint it in Photoshop in a more realistic style rather than the animation style of my last two drawings. The catch is that the hand eye coordination issue is too much of a handicap on my current Wacom tablet. So I'm thinking I'll have to wait until I get the new tablet before I can tackle this drawing.

Agguguy

Fixed the minor issues with the Agguguy sketch and traced and colored it in Photoshop this morning. Not sure how I feel about the decals. Some of them I like, some of them I don't. I may go back and tweak those later.

Back to Back

Felt like drawing a Zaku today. Wanted to use a simple, cartoony style, almost kinda like the old 0079 animation. Originally planned to do a group of three Zakus back to back, but it ended up being a Zaku and a Gouf lol.

Here's the original inked drawing and two re-draws/colorings in Photoshop.

Agguguy Head

Played around with Agguguy in Photoshop a little bit today. Colored the head and enlarged it and set it down a little bit lower on the shoulders. The line work and coloring isn't great since I was just rushing through this for funsies. I'm saving up for a Wacom Cintiq tablet. Once I get that, digital illustration will feel SO much more intuitive. A least more so than on my Intuos 3 which is what I've got now.

Agguguy

Don't know why, but I've always liked this goofy looking mobile suit. Sketched it out this afternoon. There's a couple of proportion and perspective tweaks it needs,  but I can do that when I ink it in Photoshop.

Tallgeese II sketch

Starting on a drawing of Tallgeese II. Using the famous "Tallgeese II pose" but from a nice 3/4 bird's eye view angle. Once I'm finished with the line art, I'll ink it, scan it, and color it in Photoshop.

Starting a new blog

After almost nine months of inactivity in the Gunpla community, I find myself drawn back in once again (no pun intended). Although I won't be modeling anymore, I've always been and always will be an artist. This blog will be a place for me to post Gundam and other anime-related artwork.
