    Based on the highly successful Angel Gundam design, the Shadow Phoenix quickly became the most popular mobile suit in space pirate armadas as early as ten years after its completion. With its unique phase armor, it was partially out of sinc with the rest of the universe in the space/time continium.

    Created from la_dav's Angel Gundam for his mod.. ;)

    :) It's...... interesting. I'll give you that. Not to discourage you, because C&P plus palette editing is hard work, but :hmm: I'm not sure the effect your after can properly be visualized with the meathods you've employed or the palette you had to work with :) a worthy effort.

    I will admit I'm no gundam aficionado, so it may be perfect :D but... IMO it's has minor palette troubles.

    hmm, how did you replace the pallette colours?? it looks interesting, a bit dark in hue but going into the right direction... if you use a program called MGI photosuite you can edit the entire pallette in one go while keeping the unique order of the individual colours

    Sword...looks like the Effects you are after with this Cool unit just need some palette editing but then again, considering that the Shadow Phoenix is suppose to be
    , it would probably have strange color effects that show the different Reality. Guess most of us have had such sheltered lives, we just have not seen nor really understand what a unit that is out of Sync with our universe would look like. :)

    lol....good one Vuldacon... :lol: ;)

    I actually wanted the black parts to be other colors, orginally. But then I saw how cool it looked that way, and I decided to keep it like that.

    la_dav: Yes I love Angell Gundam. This is my first attempt at creating something for you. I'm going to try and create something even better next.

    Winter: I actually used PSP(Which was a very kind gift from my buddy Vuldacon), and used artistic art effect, "Colored Edges" to acceive this look. I'm still expierimenting with color replacement.

    BTW all: I may make another attack for this guy, so stay tuned to this thread.... ;)
