Spring Break

      Well, it seems that last week was the first week this year that I've entirely missed a post.  In fairness, I was involved in helping to make a wedding happen, so that pretty effectively ate up the end of last week.

      I do however have a more substantial post this week.  As per the norm, I've still been getting Reina's armor figured out:

      I'm finally getting pretty close to how I want the thigh armor to look.  Of course, as soon as I get that how I want it, I start changing other things, because I just can't leave well enough alone.  I've started playing around with moving the armor on the forearms up to the biceps instead.  Reina's already got a fairly wide hips-to-shoulders ratio, and I'm worried that the bulky forearm armor places her visual center too low.

      Nothing particularly special here, just a couple more sketches getting the details ironed out.  I suppose it's worth pointing out:  The exaggerated curvature or the lower leg isn't a stylistic quirk- Reina's prosthetic legs actually do have a more pronounced curve, allowing for a higher degree of shock absorption.

      This one's unrelated.  Just playing around with mobile suit design.  My aim was to try to blend the "realistic" sensibility of Gundam's UC timeline with basic geometric styling similar to Gundam AGE.

    I have a question for you, do you do commissions?
