So on top of my day job, which has been working on the upcoming Godzilla remake, for the past year..plus. I try to find time to work on my own projects and ideas for features, graphic novels or games etc. I decided to shelve one of them yesterday, after seeing an upcoming game which is too similar for comfort. So I thought id just go ahead and post a couple of sketches I made for it.
It was set in the not too distant future, but with a Nam feel to it. Its basically a modified Bell helicopter :)
I had a bunch of storyboard panels too....here is one of them...
After a recent trip to Tokyo, I felt like having a crack at my own Gundam design.
I wanted to retain most of suits basic geometry, then add a few little features of my own.
To point out a few... I added triangular shoulder pads and vents, curved lights and a elongated head. The new antennae shape is based on the front decoration found on a samurai warrior helmet (kuwagata).
