Gundam Sandrock Ver.Te by Tekka-Croe Gundam Sandrock Ver.Te by Tekka-Croe
Okay, so if you're super obsessive, you'll want to point out that this isn't Gundam Sandrock, it's Gundam Sandrock Kai. Well, big deal. It's the same thing, just with more thrusters, for space operations.

In both Gundam Wing and it's sequel Endless Waltz, the Sandrock has always been my favorite of the five Gundams. Not sure why, I just dig it. As some of you may have guessed, I used my previous illustration of the Wing Gundam as a template, as the five Gundams from Wing seem to have roughly the same proportions (which makes sense, I suppose, as they were all designed by the same team of mad scientists).

As with the Wing, I've played around a bit with the color scheme, removing many of the red bits, and completely eliminating the light grey sections. I also carried the gold trim into the shoulders, to balance the trim on the skirt armor.

Original Kunio Okawara design can be seen here: [link]

EDIT 10/28/12 It's come to my attention that my previous computer's monitor settings were somewhat skewed, causing yellow colors to have a pale, sickly hue. I've since corrected this to have the more golden yellow that I intended.

Like I said about Wing Gundam, your take on this mobile suit is impressive. I noticed that some areas that were grey are now black, that half of the crown antenna is white, and the wing shoulder armor has been changed. The gold trim is a nice touch as well. What is that dark thing behind the head?.

Sandrock was always my favorite from the show, at least aesthetics wise.

Pretty awesome design :"3 do you do commissions by anychance?

awesome technical drawing! sandrock is in my opinion one of the best gundam designs....
Wow. This looks good. It's the perfect balance of flashy/theatrical impracticality and down-to-earth functionality (well, as functional as giant robots are, anyway).

If I were any good at customizing/kitbashing, I might just have to PLA plate the shit out of an old Sandrock model and make this.

Yes, I, too, liked Sandrock the best for no reason other than he wasn't Wing Gundam.

It looks much more like a UC suit in your style.

Fricking boss. Love the winged scales on the shoulder elements.

I'm seriously considering it, seeing as I've already got two of five.

Again, a brilliant re-design.

Are you gonna do the other Gundams from Wing?
SSG-Scorps Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2011
Beautiful. Definitely an improvement over Okawara's, with respect to it of course, but still.

You're style seems to be the opposite of Katoki, big torso, shorter legs. Both are cool though

Another one from the models I had when i was younger. Sandrock wasn't a favorite of mine as it was, probably because of the original legs/anxle skirts and the shield. Actually there were just a whole bunch of little things I didn't really like :-P. By chiseling off some of the rounded edges and fixin gthose god-awful ankles, though, I think you've done this gundam a service.

awesome work ^_^

I like how you blended the best traits from the TV series version and the OVA version.

The proportions on your redesigns are much more eye pleasing as the TV version of sandrock, (and the other gundams for that mater) always looked to bulky IMO.

Great redesign :)

You too? I loved Sandrock. Especially since it was the only one to somehow wear a poncho...>.>;;
