This one does away with the traditional mecha boxy aesthetic and trades it all for ultra smooth curves and panels. It almost looks like the same panel designer of the 1960 corvette produced it's armour shapes.
This sort of refreshing design is something I find I really enjoy after sing gundam after gundam. It's futuristic yet retro at the same time.
This piece is very special to me as it's the very first drawing where I tested the super delicate and light ballpoint technique. I forced myself to not press hard to the paper, to almost give the tones an overexposed look. And I was blown away at how it turned out.
Fun moment: Putting those cast shadows in. I just never get enough of that!
