Zidharta collab CG color by VulnePro Zidharta collab CG color by VulnePro
Many of you good folks who surf Deviant looking for fab mecha designs have likely, at some point, ran into works by this impressively talented guy Those of you who havenít go to his gallery now, trust me you wonít be disappointed. This machine is one of genocidalpenguinís designs I offered to CG color. Itís his illustration and the cool white lion on the left shoulder is his design as well I only did the colors here :) Itís a design for a short comic heís working on and I can only imagine itíll be quite a cool ride once itís done. He commented the look of the background has an 80s mecha model kit kind of vibe, I found that an appropriate observation because coloring this design felt like building a badass custom mecha kit and painting it all up with a cool paint scheme, it was just fun. I think the design is very cool and has a nice visual appeal to it, imaginative and stylish. I will surely do more colors for select GPís mechs in the future, no doubt. Itís quite often nice to do colors, every now and then, for other talented artists work rather than doing your own works.

Edit: Lion crest sans green bg :)

Just as with the DZ, it's a very pretty design with very small feet. It reminds me a little of a bird of some sort, or maybe an insect.

I think, by the way, that the angular camouflage on the DZ fits a mechanical thing such as this much better than the organic patterning on this design, though both are pleasing to the eye.

The design & colouring are very reminiscent of Makoto Kobayashi's work, which is a win in my book.

My thanks but I can't and won't take full credit for this design, the honors go to as he's created this beast, I only colored it. That said GP and I both have a little Kobayashi influence in our works along with a wide range of other things. Thanks for droping in and by all means give GP's gallery a visit as well :)

Hah, my friend..here is your first taste of publicity. Check your page counts on the views.

It will only snowball from here, gaining more and more watchers, and more and more comments.

I think, after talking to one of my compatriots in the Mod team, I'm going to do a 'battle tank' mech next. Ie, a mech with less human features recognisable, and more of a machine than anything else. I'll talk to you later this week on AIM if you are not busy.

Yeah, I noticed, it's getting a little momentum. I plan to respond to folks as much as I can but sadly I forsee a point where I'll not be able to if this keeps going, still I plan to try my best. Tanks, now that will be cool to see from you, I have a feeling you'll create some wild ones. I also have a few tanks planned myself :) No legs or arms, just tanks.

Thank you kindly :) His work is fantastic so that made it easy. I will have more collabs in the future with him, I've known him for a short time here but he's already got my highest respect as a fellow creator. Indeed drop in his gallery and fire some props his way though I'm sure you prob already have ;) There will be plenty more from both of us on the way, I think we both have a crazy affinity for mecha work.

Thank a lot man :) I have a feeling and I will be collaborating on quite a few things in the future, time permitting for either of us. I imagine I will end up doing something with a European cammo look if not with his designs on one of mine, or possibly even something from as well, I have some stuff planned to color of his designs too :)

I'm digging the camo paintjob, it really feels much more organic than usual. It looks like something an alien race would build, though I do watch ~genocidalpenguin I'm not familiar with his desifn origins, yet. So it kinda struck me odd that the "aliens" would use a lion for an emblem when you highlighted it :laughing:

It does have a different feel to it in terms of cammo paints. I basically merged 2 differing WWII styles of German Panzer tank cammo and it resulted in a kinda unusual look overall. I believe the mech is an Earthbound machine made by a futuristic Middle eastern warring faction. :deviantgenocidalpenguin: can explain of course being it's his design. Thanks for the comments :)

I like the symbols you added.

just one thing. the lion is supposed to be just the white, the background was just to make it more visible.
my fault, as I didnít point that out. it might look good outlined like the other symbols as well.

VulnePro Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2005  Professional Filmographer
Cool beans, glad you dig it and it would be an easy fix to change the lion, piece of cake :) I could outline it or leave it white. I added the other symbols with the notion they were spray painted maybe by the pilot so they were personal beyond the lion crest. WhenI have time I will have the next beastie you sent me underway :)
