Gundam Dawn reference by Tekka-Croe Gundam Dawn reference by Tekka-Croe
Finally, finally, I've managed a design for the Dawn that I'm really happy with. If you've seen the original image of Gundam Dawn (you can see it here: [link]), then you'll notice that this new design is very different. Despite the differences, I think I've kept the Dawn's original character intact in this new iteration, with a lithe, almost feminine aesthetic.

I'm working on a story for the Dawn (and its counterpart, the Dusk) set in the Gundam 00 universe, so I may end up writing a short story. Characters are also in development.

Sketched with a .3mm mechanical pencil, inked with a .2mm Micron pen, colored with Copic Sketch markers. Touch-ups added in photoshop.

This one looks amazing and eerily realistic. :)

Have you managed to write down the story by any chance? I would really love to read it somewhere. :)

Have you ever thought of redrawing this design of the dawn?
Don't get me wrong, the work you put in to getting this result is great. I was wondering how it would look now that your skills have improved greatly.

I have a request to make. I'm currently writing a Mobile Suit Gundam 00 story on (8,960 words long at the moment. It's a romance between Feldt and my own character, Falken. Would it be okay if I used your Gundam Dawn as Feldt's mobile suit? If so, I'll be sure to credit you in my notes at the beginning and end of the chapters it features in. Please let me know if you're okay with that.

While I do appreciate your enthusiasm, I'm afraid I can't let you do that. Dawn already has its own Meister, and a story in the works for it.
