I basically mean i looks more advanced then the run of the mill Zaku, like this would be something that would've blown the old Zaku's out of the stars and maybe could've matched some of the Federation's newer MP Suits
True... although (for whatever reason) the Universal Century doesn't seem very down with gauss weaponry. I can only think of one or two instances. In any event, I might revisit this design for a future project.
The Dom series always have been favorites of mine. Something about the NFL/NHL silouette with the big bazooka that struck a chord in me. Your rough design shows some promise; it would be nice to see it advanced into a more finished design. I especially like the thought of advancing the overall Dom concept into a new direction, instead of becoming a rehash like the Dowadge.
Thanks! Yeah, the Dom definitely has presence. I was very happy with the Dreissen as a good Dom derivative. And, strangely enough, the Dom from Gundam SEED Destiny (Dom Trooper, was it?) was a pretty good retread. But I know what you mean... It's fun to come up with MSs which are thematically similar, but aren't just revisitations. Perhaps I'll develop this one more. It has gotten pretty good response overall.
I must agree, the revised MP Dreissen from Gundam Unicorn was a handsome MS, and the DOM Trooper from GSD was likewise a fine MS. But there was really no new ground assault Dom; the superb Dom Tropen was more of a tweak and an anime version of the MSV Tropic Dom prototype. Your MS concept looks like the basis for a new ground-skimming assault MS for the Neo-Zeon era.
Honestly, I just barfed this one onto the page really quickly -- probably took a half hour or so. (Not including scanning and coloring.) Many people seem to dig this design, I guess I did something right! But seriously, your comments and kudos are truly gratifying.
Thank you very much, again, for the compliments. I guess I was shooting for something like the Dom with this design. I am flattered that you think this is better than what appeared in some of the animes. I am not a fan of SEED's designs, but then again I am no pro.
nice very well done zaku eske but not a rip off of it i dare say it is better then a majority of enemy mobile suits in the actual show these day (especialy seed) amazing job may friend i really wish this could get put into a gundam series
