Force Impulse Gundam

Out and about in Japan so not at home at the moment. Probably won't be back for some time, but whilst playing around on PS with this one I finally decided on an image (which I posted as a header a wee bit ago). It's an oldie that I didn't like at the time but decided to gussie up a bit while I had some free time away. Anyway, I wont be back for probably quite a while -- training for marathons, traveling, etc, so have fun during summer!!

Gouf Custom: Shield and mounted Gatling

The shield is coming along but I still haven't fixed those damned feet. I have to get to those and the hand weapon as well. The shield area looks a thin somehow so I guess I'll stretch that a tick.

Gouf Custom: Legs

Using the Zaku and a lot of its parts and ideas, I went ahead with the gouf custom legs. Used some ideas from the version 2 gouf in the upper legs but after that there isn't much to gawk at. I have to fix the feet incline direction as it should be opposite the way that the zaku's incline.

Astray: Texture 1

After almost a month I've gotten down this far in the textures. I haven't even added the "decals" yet nor have I finished the weathering portion. Still seems on track though as it is. Dropped the lower legs down a little and got rid of some un-needed polys but it's still kicking my workstation's keister. Like the plastic model, I decided on texturing the "shared frame" a little darker than the actual red armor. Wanted to weather that a bit too but haven't gotten to it yet. Might be a go this weekend. Again the style was supposed to be a throw-back to Bee-Crafts original idea for the PG Astray.

Edit: Still not there, but shovin along...

Zaku II J: Legs 2

So there are most of the legs, but it feels too faked for some reason. Might be too flattened out. Messed up the frame mostly because it's guessed upon using the Zaku Cannon and pics from the net. Might use bump maps to illustrate some of the detail that isn't there.

Zaku II J: Legs 1

Went back to the game center for a few minutes and took on Gundam Senjo no Kizuna and was again royally shot up by GM sniper custom units. Just couldn't get the Zaku FZ to move out of the way of the beam. Interestingly, someone from my Zeon team had a MLRS GP02 which I thought was a Feddy machine in the game.

Oh yeah, the Zaku IIJ's sexeh legs...er...the start of em.

Gouf Custom: 35mm Three Chambered Gatling

A little here and there and the gatling on the hand looks to be on track to getting done.

Gouf Custom: Arms

My legs are feeling murderously bad after todays marathon. Feels like they're going to snap. So sitting down to more Zeon MS's. The arms are based on the gouf custom arms on the outside, but the zakuII on the inside, at least on the upper arms.

Zaku II J: Arms

Well, there they are ..just about. Turns out that all of this nice detail work is raining hell on the polycounts, so I may scale back and use some bump maps here too. Thanks to all of the nice folks who are keeping watch on the blog. Much appreciated

;)

Gouf Custom: Waist 2

Pretty near the end on the waist. Thought it would have been much harder, though I still would like a little detail in the insides of the skirt armor. Still a snip here and there to go. Got a few errors in the torso that I'd like to remove as well.

Gouf Custom: Waist 1

Came back from work late the last couple of days and haven't done much. Getting the waist together on this one using the ideas from the Zaku IIJ ver 2 mesh.
