Gul Tiger by GhostLiger Gul Tiger by GhostLiger
You'd think, me being such a rabid Zoids fangirl, that my gallery would be overflowing with Zoid pictures! The truth is, I've have never finished any Zoid picture aside from my custom "Shadow Liger" Zoid.
Organoids? Fine! Zoids characters? No problem! The Zoids themselves? Uh....

It's not that I don't want to draw them, it's just that the level of detail usually breaks my brain!

Well, after taking some advice from :iconriskybiznez: I decided to start off with something simple, and my OJR Grade-ups Gul Tiger model kit was the simplest Zoid I could find in my collection that I really wanted to draw!

Once again, the background was hoiked from PS Elements 5.0

YAYS!!! Gul Tiger always interested me... wait, you have one! .... no fair ~sniff~

Excellent start off and I'm glad I could help. I think you did really good with the detailing for the first try ^__^

There isn't enough Gul Tiger artwork, and a billion Liger Zeros... (meanwhile I'm working on a new Liger Zero >_>... but it's a cool, sleek, futuristic Liger Zero!!!! That makes all the difference!!)

:D I was very lucky with my Gul Tiger. I got it cheap off of eBay because it was built and it's motor didn't work. When I tested it, I discovered the motor did work, but for some reason the legs wouldn't move, so I opened it up and found that two of the gears were actually missing! I replaced them temporarily with a couple of gears from Battle Cougar (which I still haven't got round to replacing yet!)

Arigatou for the encouragement and the fave :D I'm trying to gather the courage to do a Red Murasame. Although, at the moment I've got 2 Fullmetal Alchemist pictures and a Flimbo's Quest picture I want to finish first.

Yeah, a lot of the vintage Zoids like Gul Tiger and Zeekdober are under-rated! There's just not enough pics of them around!
Heh heh heh, I'd be a hypocrite if I said I didn't like Liger Zero!

Awesome! All the zoids on ebay are pretty expensive now, and I can't even find a Murasame @__@

Red Murasame sounds awesome, but FMA's always good ^_^

I like the Des Tiger too and the King Liger. lol ya, you have to like the Liger Zero... and now my avatar's the Liger Zero! ah-ha!!! *flails around*

Yeah, I think I was shocked the most when I saw a standard Hasbro red Blade Liger go for about $150-odd on eBay. Mind you it's possible people confused it for the Japanese Ltd version.

Yep! I hope to finish them soon. The Flimbo's quest one is nearly done, then it's FMA all the way!

I like the look of Des Tiger, but King Liger... I dunno, all Grade up's take time to grow on me, except for Zeekdober, that I liked the minute I saw it!
Cool, I like your new avatar!

True, esp if you don't show the box cuz the models look exactly the same. The Japs could've got the Hasbro one cheaper then buy their Red Blade Liger probably when it came out ;)

Awesome! Can't wait!

I think it's the stance of the King Liger. He just looks like he's confident and can kick your ass in a heart beat. Zeekdober's pretty awsome. What do you think of the Lidier? I think it's eyes are cute.

Actually the two kits aren't exactly the same. Hasbro's Bladey is a lighter shade of red, has grey legs, plastic feet and absolutely no pilot figure. Ltd is darker red, has black legs, metal feet and the anime sprue with Van, Fiona and Zeke figures. It's actually based on Leon's Bladey from New Century Zero, though some argue it's not accurate enough ^^;
Easy mistake to make though... When I bought my Leon's custom I swore blind that there was only one red Bladey and it was ltd... got a bit of a shock when my Ltd Bladey came through ^^;

Hmmm, Lidier.... Yes I take it back about Grade ups! I like this one :D

lol Ohhhh, I guess that's what I get when I can only look at internet photos XD That's kinda dumb that it's called Leon custom, but it doesn't come with Leon >_> I really don't care if they come with pilots or not cuz I usually lose them. All my zoids are wild zoids!!! WOOO!!!! Except Midnight Shield's Bit, and that cuz he's like 2in tall ;)

heh heh =D

There's a lot of debate over the Leon's pilot... some people swore blind that the Leon's Bladey had a standard grey pilot and no other type... but I've had two Leons in my time and both of them had anime pilots. In addition all pictures I've seen on the net of them that you can see the pilot in have the anime ones!
Althought for a long while I was led to believe mine was fake!

My Hasbro Red Bladey's the only wild Zoid I have, and he decided to throw himself off the shelf during the night ^^;

Yeah... I don't know why mine's not showing up! I mean, I put the words "Gul" and "Tiger" into the keyword list! Mind you, this isn't the first picture of mine this has happened to!

ROFLMAO

:dance: Arigatou.

I want to use an adjusted version for my forum signature, but I need to draw my Gul Tiger's Pilot to go with it first :D

There's not enough Gul Tiger artwork online I think!
