"Rhy is dis missirr not made of cake? Fix immediatry!"
But I must disagree with the debaters below. Though SC4's Nightmare certainly looks badass, my favorite has always been the SC2 suit. It kinda helps my case that the SC2 Nightmare is the logo for the Project Soul Dev team, so... take from this what you will. But still, awesome work dude.
its all a matter of opinion
Have a talent that I could only dream of copying. Zero always was my favorite Gundam.
Anyway, I would never have the shear patience required to do that with a drawing. I'd scrutinize every last detail, but I would never shade it in, never add shadow to it or add a background. And with charcoal, of all things? I would never imagine it as forgiving. But then, I've never had a serious art class. I merely copy and adapt what I see to my own style. Very impressive, to say the absolute least.
charcoal is very forgiving. Well Vine charcoal is. Its a differant method of drawing then you would with pencil. It forces you to draw more in masses and defining colume rather then lines and detail detail, Kinda like the paint of dry media.
I loved that map, too bad after I got Armored Core: Last Raven that #2 lost it's flair. And honestly, IT LOOKS PRETTY MASSIVE! Adding the guys in the orange snowsuits was a brilliant idea, otherwise I'm not sure if we would get the picture quite so well. Very well done!
Epicness. Not a flaw on any of them.
Except for the golden dragon-axe-thing, that just seems a bit out of place.
Also, to Garret01, ther are pommels on some of them, and the ones without pommels aren't even supposed to HAVE pommels (I mean, a pommel on a katana?!)
The pommel is part of the European swordmaking styles, you wont find pommels on any samurai katana or most of the Asian sword designs because their swords are used differently that a European sword. Take the knight's broadsword VS the katana: The broadsword is designed like a cross because of the knights being "holy warriors", and that also influenced their fighting styles- though they were more rough and tough at first they eventually became more controlled, and more tactical- they knew that they couldn't hurt another knight (or anyone, for that matter) while he was in armor, so (a: the tips of their swords were made thinner to pierce chain-mail, and (b: they started trying to knock opposing knights down so that they could knife the poor guys in the joints where the plate-mail could not cover. The pommel was added to balance out the long blade vs the shorter handle, and the "holy warrior" thing is also reflected in the shape of their swords: crosses. In fact, the name of the hanguard which forms the cross is the Crossguard. As for Samurai, they were originally an all cavalry force- as time went on there blades became longer for reach, thinner for weight and speed on foot, curved for easy unsheathing on horseback AND the added bonus of the fact that a curved blade cuts better than a straight one (and dents plate armor ALOT, restricting movement and breathing and such), and they started using advanced, almost ritualized techniques to forge an almost unbreakable sword. But at the same time, the handle and the blade were so perfectly balanced that a pommel of any sorts was not needed. Middle-Eastern Scimitars, on the other hand, were often forged with pommels because of alot of contact with European society and such- My god that was so much longer than I meant to make it.
Okay, I understand that Garret probably will never read this, but hey I put it here anyway. He said "Do your research", and I rebuked him because he did not even bother to do HIS research.
So, in short, EPIC FAIL on Garret01's part.
EPIC WIN on Matt's part.
Just plain FAIL on my part for taking so much damn room, my apologies to everyone!
Dot dot dot...
Matt, you have WAY too much time on your hands.
Nice job, though! I see you added the Peace flag for a bit of irony.
Just one thing...
Other than the gunbaled seeming a little small. It's that the Heartless, more specifically the Shadows, look... cute. Great job, though!
One of those "how much crap does this thing have?!" mobile suits... 7 different swords, 2 beam rifles, insane speed... AND it can teleport. One of the best Gundams ever... But Wing Zero still pwns all. Awesome art, though. Couldn't have done it better myself. Gundam 00 now shows on the Syfy channel, 11:00 and 11:30 on mondays, for those who are interested.
