MG Deathscythe EW Commission
This is the third commission kit I've complete for my customer Rob; the first two being the Heavyarms and the Ground Gundam. I really enjoy working with customers like Rob because they know what they want, but they also allow me to incorporate my ideas into their kits.
For the Deathscythe he wanted a color scheme reminiscent of the TV version.
Katoki's Deathscythe unfortunately eschews a lot of the dark blue on the upper body.
I incorporated the dark blue into the head and skirt armor. I also used a light grey to highlight the edging all around the skirt armor, and for the mandibles on the arm pincers. Additionally I recolored the back pack to a medium grey similar to the colors used on the TV version
Overall I'm very happy with the way the color scheme translated to the EW version. I think that Duo would be proud!
Chest, shoulders, forearms and feet:
70% Midnight Blue
V fin, shoulder detail, wrist detail and chest vents
Outer frame, backpack, Scythe
100% Medium Grey
Front, side and rear skirt detail:
99% Light Grey
Head jewel, gotee shield detail
50% Sky blue
There won't be many poses I'm afraid, I want to preserve the paint for my client as much as possilbe.
