MSN-18E Kämpfer II PBR Gallery

The MSN-18E Kämpfer II was a Prototype Mobile Suit for Newtypes created by the Neo-Zeon "Sleeves". The Kämpfer II was utilized as a Heavy Assault Use Mobile Suit meant to take out strategic military targets with overwhelming force.  

The MSN-18E Kämpfer II was built to full-fill a similar role for Neo-Zeon in U.C. 0095 as its predecessor did for the Principality of Zeon in U.C. 0079. It was meant to honor the heritage of the original Prototype YMS-18 Kämpfer and its variants (MS-18E Kämpfer) for the role they played in U.C. 0079 and beyond. It carries the same model number and designation 18E Einhauen (One Strike).

The MSN-18E was custom built with parts from the AMS-129 Geara Zulu and spare phycoframe and powerplant parts from the MSN-06S Sinanju and the NZ-666 Kishatriya

I built the MSN-18E's head to practice some PBR Texturing Methods and to learn Substance Painter!

MSN-18E Kämpfer II was my own design  of a Neo-Zeon "Sleeves" era upgraded  MS-18E Kämpfer. 

I used Zbrush, 3DS Max, Photoshop, Substance Painter, and Marmoset Toolbag 2Check back soon when I can hopefully 3D print this!

RGM-79[G] GM Ground Type Gallery

The RGM-79[G] GM Ground Type is a variant of the RGM-79 GM deployed by the Earth Federation Ground Forces to fight against the Principality of Zeon. It was rushed into production in early 0079 to provide combat battle testing in addition to the space-use RGM-79 [E]. It shared nearly 80% of the same parts of the more powerful RX-79 [G] Gundam Ground Type. Both units were constructed using Luna Titanium Alloy. Even though these units were cheaper to produce than the Gundam Ground Type, only 42 units were ever produced. They were deployed in Southeast Asia, Eastern Europe, Africa, North America, and Australia.

The Gunpla Project 00 Walk-through for this project will be coming shortly with Work in Progress Photo's of the painting process.

Voxel Mech Head 3: G1 Bumblebee

Hey, the next Voxel Mech Head is here! Here is the Autobot Bumblebee from the original Transformers animated series from 1984. G1 Bumblebee's iconic vehicle mode is a yellow Volkswagen Type 1 Beetle.

Even though Bumblebee is one of the smallest of the Autobots, he is known to be one of the bravest Transformers.  He strives to prove himself to Optimus Prime and the other Autobots, and even though he means well, often gets himself and his human friend Spike Whitwicky into trouble with the Decepticons.

I think he was my first Transformer toy I received when I was around two years old. I think this inevitably led to a life-long infatuation with robots and mechs. Since then, I've always had a soft spot for this yellow horned dude!

Voxel Mech Head 2: RX-78-2 Gundam

Going with a classic here for Voxel Mech Head 2. Here is the RX-78-2 Gundam from the original Mobile Suite Gundam.

This prototype Mobile Suit was created by the Earth Federation Forces on Side 7 in UC 0079. Amuro Ray piloted the RX-78-2 Gundam in the One Year War against the Principality of Zeon. It would be one of the first Mobile Suits to make use of Beam Weaponry. It also served as the basis for Mass Production of the RGM-79 GM.

Since my recently renewed interest in Gundam and Gunpla, I have come to realize that I am primarily a fan of anything from the original Universal Century. I seem to care more about it's designs and I think it is because of the amount of detail packed into the UC Timeline. There is extensive information about the history and construction of each Mobile Suit model. There is also comprehensive data on almost all combat operations during each point in the timeline. Love me some Gundam!

Voxel Mech Head 1: VF-1D Valkyrie

After Ben Weatherall (Crossy Road)  followed me on Twitter the other day, and after seeing a few other fellow artists  at UbiTor  create some cool stuff in Qubicle 2.0, I decided to fire it up and try my hand at some Voxel Art. I thought making some Mech heads might be interesting to re-create with Voxels.

My first attempt here is from one of my favorite properties, Super Dimensional Fortress Macross.  This is the VF-1D Valkyrie, a two-seater variant of the VF-1 Variable Fighter. These machines were operated by UN Spacy during Space War I against the Zentradi.

The VF-1 was created by the renowned Japanese mecha designer, Shoji Kawamori. He was also responsible for many famous designs featured in Escaflowne, Ghost in the Shell, Mobile Suite Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory, among many others.

Stay tuned for more Voxel Art, and hopefully more Mecha heads!
