HGUC Zeta "ZETAN"
« on: August 17, 2008, 07:17:48 PM »
I call this "ZETAN" (Zetan pronounced as in Satan/devil/Lucifer)

I got inspiration from the TItan's TR-6 wondwort.





Mono-eye


Bulk up the torso with 1.2mm plaplate


Kit bash Gundam Exia's shoulder to lengten the waist


Cut and trim the waist to be slimmer


Primed




Thats all for now folks,

Wow... It's interesting. However if I had to guess, I'd say the inspiration was more from the Zeong! It needs a big ass now and would be a perfect AoZeong!

Wow one of the most creative mods I have ever seen! And the vote came in, definitely the creepiest Zeta ever to be made.

I keep seeing new details everytime i look, like the foot used for the shoulders. But the chain kinda sticks out to me, goes superb with the theme, but looks odd when just hanging in the middle. Kinda just makes me want to hang a lantern of it and call it a ghost lol.

Keep it up.

YEah! lots of guys comment about the chain thingy.

In fact I'd wanted to hang a Gundam head on the chain but it will look corny!

I'm glad you find it creepy cause tats what I want my audience to feel.

It looks interesting but I really don't see the AoZ in it. More Kobayashi I'd say.
And...I have to say it...I really hate the chain :razz:

Yeah it is out of place a bit. But it probably could be fixed if more chains were added. The thing that makes the chain stick out is there is no symmetry to balance it out. If you just added some chain to the shoulders or arms then it would fit symmetrically. Or adding enough chains it could make a interesting appearance as if it was constrained at one time and broke free, which would add to its creepiness, and would make an interesting diorama... but thats my over active imagination at work. But your model, you do as you please.

Wow, I would have never come up with that, and that's saying something. What's amazing is that even though you pretty much just mixed up all the Zeta's parts, it actually doesn't look like you just mixed up all the Zeta's parts. I really thought it was a kitbash of many different kits until I looked at it more carefully. Overall it's very cool, and the chain is a little weird, but... uuummmmm...

Nobody has a problem with the reversed HRUDUDU dog ears on the head?? :twitch: Kinda looks like it saw itself in the mirror and went "YIPES!"

I'll not go on more about them as I think it would go beyond constructive criticism. Maybe they could be cut shorter?

I like your idea and the painting job but I think you didn't get far enough with your concept.

It's funky but I don't really get it.


The head fins remind me of Khornate Berserkers from 40k
