Why this piece is awesome: Mechas in action is another popular subgenre in GW fanart. This is a very nice example. Full of energy and movement and with a lovely colour palette.

Why this piece is awesome: A character and their Gundam is a common motif in GW art and I thought I should rec at least one example even though the one I've chosen is a bit different from the usual lot - instead of a static portrait we get a moment captured in time. I love the sense of movement and the contrast between the warm red of Zechs' uniform jacket and the cool blue sky behind Tallgeese.

Why this piece is awesome: While staying close to the depiction in the anime this work adds an interesting touch of physicality and maturity to the characters. A very cool take on Duo and Heero in action.

Why this piece is awesome: This work does a great job depicting these three pilots as they would look as young adults. I'm particularly fond of Wufei and his no-nonsense attitude. And the colouring is just lovely.

Why this piece is awesome: I really like this work. There is something so quintessentially Duo about his determined face and the way he's pulling his cap down and preparing to go into battle.

Why this piece is awesome: I remember first first seeing these in 2003 when I was new to Gundam Wing. I loved them back then and found them just as charming when I recently stumbled upon them again. They're so cute and fun. I just want to cuddle them. My favourites are probably Howard, Noin, and the Quatre & Trowa pair, but all of them are just as adorable.

Why this piece is awesome: This is such a gorgeous portrait of Wufei. Not only because he's laughing - an unusual and welcome sight :-) - but also because of the way the broad brush strokes sculpts his face and upper body with their lovely shades of tans and blues.
