Although I didn't design this FOIL the project it's intended for is my studio's primary original property [link] (I will be updating that page with all the new works as soon as I have time) and GP's concept here utterly fits the premise including the wild colors. It's a very artisan driven society and the FOILs are often treated as works of art just as much as war mounts. Many of the FOIls I posted, so far, have more military cammo and colors with muted pastel color accents but I also have some planned that were going to be wilder in color than what I put up on my gallery. GP is reading my mind His design does rock indeed.
Utterly spectacular man, UTTERLY. As I said I had no doubts your imagination would fit in the project, you and I do things in a similar vein. Very kick ass design. I just hopped online and saw this I'll say some more in a few (and none of it will be bad believe me), gotta run some errands but for now I can say this much, does it fit, like a glove man. You concepts for FOILs or any of the sendai I know will be top-notch. Good lookin' out Oh yeah, love the colors too.
The intent for the show will be that the FOILs are to be CG so enocidalpenguin, myself, andother designers can really just let our imaginations go crazy. Doing what I have in mind, or what I expect penguin to come up with would prob make traditional hand drawing animators murder us. The show will prob be a mix of 2D and 3D with FOILs and complex mechanics 3D.
Yes, something akin to that only with more dirty texture. IGPx has cell shaded CG mechs and they look pretty damn cool. I can see going that route only adding the dirt textures over the base cell shading and also avoiding over shiny looking metal surfaces. It seems a lot of anime that does cell shaded tech goes overboard with the shiny look, Appleseed was a good example of this. Overall Appleseed's mechs were beautifully done with the cellshading, especially the freeway chase but the showdown at night at the end of the flick they wend way too crazy with all the reflective surfaces making everything look too clean.
hehehehe VulnePro's gonna be real happy when he see's this. Nice work as always. The little orange design on the arms and legs is awesome. You should use that kinda artistic liscence kinda stuff more often in your other work, along with the camo schemes and such. You never know when these mecha are needed in a parade, they got to look flashy some time or another hehe
