Dunbine type-E by eyetypher Dunbine type-E by eyetypher
it's Dunbine from 1983's anime called "Aura Battler Dunbine"
not originally designed by me
I just modified it a little based on the original one

Original mechanical designer(s): Kazutaka Miyatake (principal design), Yutaka Izubuchi (cleanup)
here is some reference for the real thing [link]

I liked this mech ever since I saw it on SRW Impact, the first SRW series I played
maybe because its design based on insect
and yeah, I like insect things

actually I've thinked of drawing Dunbine with some more-mecha-looking from long time ago
then last night it's bugging me somehow
and then I don't know why, I ended up drawing this

quick time digital editing with MsPaint (XP ver) on major editing, Photoshop for wing's transparency and watermark effect
looks kinda asyimmetric though, but I like the drawing

thanks for viewing
hope you like it =)

yeah... Dunbine... there was a mark 2, but I like this design more... :D
eyetypher Featured By Owner May 7, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
thanks, dood!

mark 2, eh? did you means Billbine?
well, actually I'm disappointed with the fact that Shou Zama changed his unit to Billbine...
it's not like I don't like Billbine, but the title is "Aura Battler Dunbine", isn't it?
I'd rather Shou to stuck with Dunbine or modify it to "something"Dunbine
and actually I prefer Dunbine better than Billbine, haha... :XD:

but you got to admit that Bilbine is more powerful than Dunbine (in a kick ass kinda way)...
it's like looking Judou Ashita from ZZ Gundam series when his driving Z Gundam (Dunbine),
then he change it into ZZ Gundam (Bilbine), well at least the ZZ Gundam series was tittled ZZ Gundam...
love the Dunbine series, the only thing that I lack about the series is I haven't watch it yet. :D

in ZZ Gundam case... the title is ZZ Gundam from the start so I won't complain... ^^;

well, I don't think Billbine is that bad anyway... and you're right that Billbine is more powerful according to what I saw in Super Robot Wars and Another Century's Episode... and it has some kind of beam saber... :XD:

there's some new generation of Dunbine animation out on 2006 called "Wings of Rean" y'know..? it's really cool too... even for some reason I still prefer Dunbine... :lol:

"Rean no Tsubasa" yeah... I've played him on Ace Another Century's 2 as playable character. But I don't know anything about the story... All I know it has the same Universe as Dunbine. :D

I played it too... :meow:
Dayheart Featured By Owner May 22, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Cool!!:D I'm eager to play the latest Ace on PS3... but it's so DANG EXPENSIVE!!
eyetypher Featured By Owner May 23, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
