Artist Dave Rapoza recently showed off his completed painting of Char Aznable and his MS-06S Zaku II.
Beginning in September, Rapoza began teasing his Char painting to his Instagram page.
He first posted, “workin on somethin – patreon link in bio!”
Next, he shared a close up of Char’s face.
Then, in the beginning of October, Rapoza shared a first look at Char’s Zaku II.
Towards the middle of October, Rapoza shared an additional update of Char writing, “love texturing these teeny details.”
On October 19th, Rapoza indicated he had completed the work and shared a crop of the image.
At the end of October, Rapoza shared the full image stating, “Char Aznable – prints available – link in bio!”
If you are unfamiliar with Char Aznable, he’s the main antagonist of Mobile Suit Gundam. He was an ace mobile suit pilot as well as an adept tactician and strategist.
During the One Year War, he discovered the Federation’s development and testing of their new Gundam mobile suits at Side 7.
He would pursue these Federation forces to Earth where he would engage in mobile suit combat with Amuro Ray as well as attempt to destroy the Pegasus-class carrier White Base, housing the new Gundam suits.
Char would continue to hunt the White Base throughout the war, while also plotting his revenge against the Zabi family who was alleged to have killed his father Zeon Zum Deikun.
