Wing Gundam Ver.te by Tekka-Croe Wing Gundam Ver.te by Tekka-Croe
So I've finally convinced myself to watch Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, since it seems to be one of the all-time fan favorite series. It's alright, I guess. I don't really understand the appeal of it, though. It's like watching Mobile Suit Gundam: The Geopolitical Soap Opera. I get that it was meant to have a greater focus on character drama in an attempt to appeal to a wider audience, but could stand to have a little more interesting giant robot action.

Anyhow, this here's my redesign of Kunio Okawara's classic Wing Gundam. I suppose it could be thought of as an alternative to Hajime Katoki's redesign (While the Ver.Ka is a beautiful illustration, it's got too much "Wing Gundam Zero" and not enough plain old "Wing Gundam").

I've made a few small changes to the design, most notably the golden bird-mode claws folded on the forearms. I've moved them from the center of the arm to the sides, as the original positioning was a little awkward, and would interfere with the articulation of the arm (can be seen here: [link] ). Aside from that, I just took away a little bit of color here and there.

So yeah, this is for all you Wing fans out there. Cheers.

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.
