Durandal by Rekkou Durandal by Rekkou
Something i made when working on the "draw this again" meme. Basically it's a mecha drawn 100% based on stuff and style that i like. So i takes a lots of element from Takayuki Yanase's design (especially Raftclans), Linebarrels and Gundam. In short, it can be said that i'm drawing my own favorite mech.

Can I ask, I see the Core Gun and Extension sword as their combined form of course, but what is the Strike Brace?

BTW, love this machine. Gives me a good impression of being able to hold its own even with the limited weapons currently given to it. Will you eventually make a weapons chart for this? I'd love to see where this thing goes.

Strike Brace is a small shield mounted on the wrist with a built in beam vulcan and the sides are sharp enough to be used as blade. Don't mind the naming, just following the weird nature of japanese naming for mech weapon.

Can't be seen properly in here because i'm restricted to one picture and i don't want to post multiple picture for a same mech. But you can see it on my pixiv page

Can i use this as part of a novel project i'm currently working on? I know i won't miss off on giving credits towards you on design. 
And also, i'm more of a novice in Deviantart itself so it'll take a while to work out the things here.

Gorgeous. The lack of obvious optic sensors is a nice touch.

Very lovely geometry, Rekkou. Something tells me the shield shouldn't be so thin, though, lol. I love Yanase's work, too!

If you are referring to call sign, it isn't a call sign for the pilot.

Oh I know. In Gundam SEED Destiny one of the characters is named Durandal. It was just an amusing thought of having him pilot something of his own name. :P

Durandal is a name of a legendary sword. It's French equivalent of Excalibur
