Cel-shaded VF-1D & VE-1

Recommended Posts

Very original. Kept asking myself back and forth if it was actually a real model. The detail is amazing.

Sorry, I don't get it... Those photoshoped pictures of a customized model kit?

No - they actually painted the hi-lights and effects right on the kit.

It creates some visual confusion to what you're seeing but I really dig it...

That is seriously cool, I don't think I have sever seen anyone paint a model that way before, the way it plays with the real shadows causes a real sense of, wha....

Totally blown away. I was thinking, "what am I looking at? Illustration?"

Such an impressive paint job.

Would anyone want Bandai or Arcadia to follow suit with special edition versions like this for their valk releases? :p

Holy crap, that's both crazy and impressive at the same time!

I'm not even sure what I'm looking at here! How the hell did they do that, painting up a 3D object and make it look 2D?

Damn! How I wish to pay the guy to teach me that technique... I'm in love with that kit! It's the most creative painting job that I never have seen in this hobby, including military stuff.

The guy is my new idol!!!

This is insane and very original in its creativity. Screw Yamato or Arcadia, this is the most anime correct real life Valkyrie I have ever seen.

Arcadia should call this guy. Instead of 'weathering' versions, give us anime versions!

Ha ha damn. I actually had an idea similar to this but hadn't had a chance to get to it. That said this bloke went way beyond what I . envisioned, or could likely have achieved. I was going to paint a MKIII RAF Mustang in a comic book coloured line art style. But as they say "no photos = never happened."

This kit is very very nice, I hope he get lots of kudos. May I ask that a member here that is able, please post our collective congratulations on that forum?

Cheers,

Berttt

Looks brilliant!

Although I think the effect would be lost if the lighting wasn't diffused. Still looks amazing tho. B))

You also need a super flat clear coat to make sure nothing else reflects and the shading is even for the anime shading to come thru. What I like the most is that he removed a lot of the detail and and minimally replaced such things as the verniers with decals. And the lit boosters, cel shaded canopy, and the flat balck on the joints also kick ass. Thanks Jefuemon... someone posted it on FB the day before and I thought... cool cel art! lol.

In my comment in that fg page, with a link to this forum I told the modeler that his model has been highly-praised also by foreign viewers
