I've always been a fan of white Zakus, but you hit the nail on the head with the rust effect. It's noticeable, but not overdone like on the White Ogre.
That Exia is freaking gorgeous. The decals, the glow effects, everything. Spot on.
You should enter in GG's coloring contest. I'm sure you'll do well in it.
Thanks Boss, I need to work on the shadows of that image again, since they are a little rough since my style evolves every image. Thankfully I still have the .psd of it. I like doing weathering effects from time to time, but have noticed some people go way overboard on them, vs well, what I think would be allowed to happen in reality. No service team is gonna let their war machines rust that bad without spraying them down with a fresh coat of paint.
I wanted to, but the shear amount of entries at this point has taken up most of the color schemes that would look good. I may have one gag one that might do well, only cause no one else has done something like it, but there are plenty of good artists in that contest, and I am very late on getting to pick a color layout. The week in the hospital definitely didn’t help.

That Exia is drop dead sexy! You do some excellent work in it. Got anything for the Sinanju Stein?
Not yet, though I probably could do something at some point in the not to distant future. Right now I am thinking about doing my gag color scheme on the Dark Matter Exia, and entering it on GG’s contest. Other than working on my new game, I’ll be free after that, and I’ll try to make something up since I know your a big fan of that suit.
I seriously think it looks like it was done by a graphics designer with plenty of experience to draw upon. That's some darn good coloring work, right there. It's so good that I wouldn't mind trying to convert that into the actual kit itself.
Thank you for your compliments sir. I’m always trying to get better, just cause of it being a personal hang up of mine. I always wanted to be a graphic artist when I was younger, but my hand skills on traditional mediums plateaued early in high school. Which meant at the time, no where to go. Was a double hit when 2 members of my extended family in my age range, went on to work for 2 out of 3 of the largest comic book publishers (jealousy, and self doubt are really a bitch! lol).
As some one who did the image, I welcome you to try, and will wish you a massive amount of luck if you attempt it. Your skills will probably handle the task with ease, though you’ll cuss me for making so many changes lol.
Thanks for all the replies guys, and well wish me luck, cause I think I will try to do at least on entry for GG.
