"The Glow of Youth"
(RX-78-02 Gundam from Gundam: The Origin, Gundam 00 [Q]an-T from Mobile Suit Gundam 00: A wakening of the Trailblazer, Unicorn Gundam from Mobile Suit Gundam UC, and Gundam AGE-FX from Mobile Suit Gundam AGE)
A commission art for Gundam Guy for his website banner, used for the month of February. This piece became a testbed for a lot of experimental traditional methods never used before by me, including using chalk pastels to replicate the Unicorn Gundam's luminescent pschoframe effect.
*Watermark was place per request.

(GekiViolet and GekiWolf from Juken Sentai Gekiranger)
A Christmas gift art for a friend. This was my first Super Sentai/Power Rangers illustration I had done since I was a child (and I could hardly call those "illustrations"). I like the over-all composition and for doing an animal-based mech, I feel it turned out very well. It's a piece I was proud of, and am glad it's in hands of someone who probably loves it just as much!

It's been a long while, but I'm finally feeling that welcoming invitation to art, again. For a moment, I thought it was gone for good...
This was the first piece of full color non-commissioned non-fan art I had done in almost 2 years.

(Amuro Ray and Char Aznable from Mobile Suit Gundam Char's Counterattack, Banagher Links from Mobile Suit Gundam UC, Kira Yamato and Athrun Zala from Mobile Suit Gundam SEED, and Setsuna F. Seiei from Mobile Suit Gundam 00 ~A wakening of the Trailblazer~ / Commission)
I was given the characters and space restrictions for this one, and simply worked within that. This piece went through two drafts, because I tried something different with Char and Amuro, but also lacked proper lineart for Banagher. The second one fleshed them out more proper, and coloring was a cinch, after that.
The background image is a random uncredited stock image I found, since there was going the main body of the website there. But I still did the lighting on the characters, accordingly.
EDIT: Here is the site using this, "The Hergula." It's used in the Mobile Suit Gundam sub-heading of their site, as well as all Gundam-related articles.
