Character Art Appreciation Thread III

Recommended Posts

Found this on a site, don't remember which one I found it on, but I was amazed to see the level of detail of this artpiece. Nice to see some Destroid action.

Yeah, that's the boxart for the Wave kit.

The SDP-1 Stampede Valkyrie and VF-3/VF-X3 Star Crusader are interesting variations on the valkyire concept. They do look good, more armored and heavily armed than a standard valkyrie. But they both feel like Gundam-ized versions of a Valkyrie, even more so than the Armored valkyries. I think the color schemes do a lot to present them as mobile suit variable fighters. Not implying that being Gundam-like is inherently bad, but IMO they feel a little less imaginative and less Macross than the other valkyries.

Stampede doesn't even JUST feel like a Gundamized Valk. It's one of the superweapon Gundams with artillery bristling from every rivet.

You could drop it into SEED or Wing and it would only look out of place because when it transforms it looks like SOMETHING, and not just a random assortment of robot kibble.

Yeah, the over-the-top look of the mecha reminds me of the more extreme Armored Valkyries (like the VF-11 Protect Armor) and of course, like Gundams. The two mecha evoke in my imagination what Gundam would be if Kawamori directed it, lol.

I'm currently at work on a complete revision of the VF-3000 Crusader, but I've got the SDP-1 Stampede started and now talking so much about it, I want to get back to work on the Stampede again :)

I tried, but the forum photo setting are being stupid. I got an image below 200 kb in size, and it's telling me the gif is still too big.

Those are freaking awesome! :blink: Are they from the Macross: Remember Me game?

BTW... Check out this derivative work made by some fan. Macross 0 + Macross The First + Classic Macross.... ^_^post-7862-0-16696300-1429404767_thumb.jpg

Did you guys notice the bloody handprint on the nacelle of the trashed Valkyrie? I don't think those are squadron markings... :ph34r:

Silly me, I was looking for a human sized handprint, and there it was staring at me all the time (actually took me about a minute to spot it...)

Hey now, a vocaloid is the only way we're getting new songs from Megumi Nakajima!

Umm... So conflicted. That's more Sheryl's speed than Minmei's, but somehow it works...

Here are more samples of his doujins (posted in the MW books thread a year ago? Time sure flies! The MW facebook page really needs to catch up! :p )
