Voltaire Brown G-Host colors by sledgeviper Voltaire Brown G-Host colors by sledgeviper
coloring done in adobe illustrator.

in the past i used photoshop to color my sketches. mainly cause i wasn't too sure which software would be best, since both are equally suited for the task. this is the first mecha i've done in illustrator (which exception of the Bohgon [brim star folder].)

illustrator did few things better than photoshop, and that was the Stroke/outlines that would be turned on and off at will, and i could play with the vector lines to my heart content. plus the gradient tool is pretty cool now =J, much better than it ever was in the past.

speaking of the past, here's what the rough draft looked like: [link]


there's also a color variation page: [link]

yes, i've done some work on it, but i've hit a wall cause i can't afford the cheese-wax i need to sculpt it.

-(btw, hey Amaterasu!)

i know i could use my various puttys and plastruct, but working with cheese wax WAY is more time efficient, without any harsh chemicals to use; plus it's very affordable. once i make the kit, i'll cast it's parts with liquid Magic Sculp (since it doesn't generate heat) and from that copy, i'll make more. but i can only buy the wax on the internet cause there is no place locally that sells it.

Really nicely done design! I have to say that it needs a kit. Can we get a scratch build from you?

It sort-of reminds me of the Huckebein MK II from SRW in its basic construction, but thats probably just me being a SRW fanboy. I do like how the armour looks like it is sectional and able to move if the mech were to walk.
