This client has his own setting separate from mine, but said he'd enjoy having my Elemental soldier in the piece too.

It takes me a few months to sketch from different angles like this and it took me ages and hours of deviant art surfing to make different poses

As for learning to draw people and pose them? Just decide what you want, find a similar photo, look at it and draw what you see. Really though just "doing it", practicing, makes you better. You don't need specific tricks, just spend time.

Hm, the glow on the Elemental's decals is really quite nice, but that's a bit of a weird arm thing he's got going on there, isn't it?

They are fighting against automated soldiers
automated soldiers are robots

Let's say that the design of these "soldiers of the future" is quite good!. The different weapons (infantry kid) along that one with a special weapon and different style gives it a really nice impact to the scene image. If I were too realistic I would say that a soldier would be suffering of carrying those heavy weapons. Ready for "NBQ" battle. Awesome job once again.

Nah, Elementals IMHO are Tier 1 operatives, with access to some crazy shit.

These Endasimarian's are Tier 2, essentially rangers which fill out the more conventional arms role in special operations. sorta like Rangers

You know I really like the Elemental, they are very creative and look very cool.
I like that staff, it has a lance of Longinus vibe was that intentional?
She/he looks rather bad-ass no matter where the inspiration came from.
Good work as always!

It's a recurring Ele, but the other soldiers aren't mine. The combination is just the request of the commissioner.

Oh, just noticing now, the soldier closest to the "screen" is missing his straps on his shoulder pads.
I don't know if it's intentional, just pointing that out.
sorry if you knew already. :c
