I know but...if Jojo's Bizarre Adventure could do it,I don't see why Battle Angel Alita,this and Prefectural Earth Defence force couldn't.

Great story/mecha but unfortunately not very popular, I have more MH's in my gallery, and probably a few more to come.

People just can't understand the story......
To lure their interest, we should introduce them the movie.

By the way, mind to tell me your favorite Fatima, Headdliner and MH?

Here are mine: Fatima= EST, Clotho and Atropos

Headdliner= Colus III, Ladios Supp but not
Amaterasu!(weird? right?) and
all black Knights

MH= Gang Doll, Octaver Engage SR I and the Black Knights

Sure, however, I don't know much about FSS story-wise since I can't buy the books, and nobody heard about it here (Romania) so I basically used to ask those who were able to buy them to tell me the main plot, so my knowledge of FSS storyline is very limited, but I'll give it a shot:

My favorite fatima would have to be Parthenon, very character, I like her alot.
Headdliner: Poesche, very interesting aswell, flamboyant to say the least.
MortarHeadds: V-Siren, Jagd Mirage (Green Demon) and the Yen Xing.:D

wow, Yen Xing huh?
That's a good taste!

Me neither is a old fans.
Just started one year ago, but i kind of collected a few episode of the series. And so, any characters and story after ep V are still strangers to me......

Buying the books really costy and they are hard to find in Malaysia as well......

CRAZY GOOD. The only thing is I can't help but feel like the lines are somewhat blurred... Like the pic SHOULD be sharper, but isn't.

Either way, I emailed you quite awhile back and will be shooting you one again now, haha.

Thanks, i used a soft brush for rendering, still, am not quite comfortable using the tablet so im not able to do long and flowing lines from one go so i have to overlay. I dont usually check my mail since i usually dont get any, but I will, would be best over MSN Mess though.

Dude, absolutely stellar work! B-) :thumbsup: I think that new equipment is definitely working out for you. ;) Wow... kickass!

(I'm the proud owner of several Five Star Stories in the original Japanese, that I picked up in Kyoto, so I do enjoy the subject matter :D).

I adore FSS, having this tablet i'm kinda looking for stuff to do now that I have the means to achieve a decent piece so I did my fav MH, the Neptune, while i'm at it - it seems a good idea to color [link] this too. Thanks again :D

I'm very excited to see your future 'mortar head' designs in color. Personally, I like this guy: [link] or I just like how you rendered him.

But even more, I'd be interested in seeing you do some original mecha designs. Maybe FSS inspired, maybe totally different. But either way, I think you've got the Mamoru Nagano style down tight, and are in a good place to explore your own concepts...

Forgot about that guy, I just don't like the head I did on him, and I screwed his lower left leg, looks like a bundle of lines with no perspective so Ill probably get down to redoing those bits. I had planned on doing my own mecha but I got side-tracked as I often do, just some really really rough sketches :
