“How about custom paintjob ideas on lineart? That’s always fun to doodle. It may even give you ideas between kits.”
Actually, I’ve got a lot of these lined up already! While I may be on a bit of a hiatus from my favorite past-time, the ideas are usually something that are rolling around in my head most of the day. I know I usually keep them secret, but let’s get down on a few of them shall we?
I really like the GN-X design, even though the model is apparently a little less than stellar. While the orange one wouldn’t be for me (the same fellow who actually helps me out with a lot of these photoshopped mockups chose that color), the purple one is definitely a favorite of mine. The red one goes well with the orange, but we all know I prefer using off-beat colors. A simple project, but a fun one.
Anyone who lurks the GAF forums knows that someday I plan on entering in to the Unicorn Gundam group build. While I’d normally keep a project that big very hush-hush and under wraps, I might as well talk about it now. This mockup was done kind of in a hurry, but conveys what I wanted to do. A stone-looking combination of greys and blacks with a molten orange color for the psychoframe. In addition to that, I really want to find a way to install LED lighting beneath the psychoframe parts to really make them stand out. Obviously a very tough task as that’d be a lot of wiring and lighting to run through the frame. This one would probably be locked to Destroy mode in order to manage that, something I’m very okay with if I could find a way to make it work. This project as a whole would probably come after I’ve gotten a little more used to modding things for LED usage.
Busterbeam over at Plamo Addiction has been working on this one for awhile now, and I’ve been meaning to work on one for just as long. While I intend on getting the VP conversion kit for this one (the angles are so good on it!), the lineart still serves as a good means to prepare what I want to do with it. I’m torn between something with color (as you can see, I’m a fan of purples) and doing a simple-more muted down silver/black scheme. Both have their appeal to me, so we’ll see what I wind up settling on whenever I finally get around to building this one.
Let’s just stop there for now, since I don’t know when things will actually progress to the point where I can even get to those. Let’s not forget all of the other projects that I still have sitting around somewhat finished or planned out that are lacking such nice mockups (my friend is quite good with it, right?). Also, I’m always looking for feedback or someone to bounce ideas off of..so if you’ve got any suggestions or useful information to add, feel free!
‘Til next time, loyal readers!
