Defense Array by Shimmering-Sword Defense Array by Shimmering-Sword
Last nights live stream paint. A bit much for me to finish in one sitting, so it's pretty messy.

During space engagements any elementals on board will aid in defending their ship by intercepting incoming rounds, either deflecting or destroying them.

interesting thing here, what is an elemental though? must be rough work for a person in a space suit to deflect missiles. or are these some kind of big mechs?

Just regular people in suits, but deflecting incoming fire is just a small part of what they can do.

Well, any old highly skilled soldier, and females have the most potential.

Ah, I see.
I was a bit unsure whether they were psychic or not, but looking at the later pictures, seems the AI is responsible for the actual powers? :oc

This is by far the coolest concept for the Elementals. And if they're smart, they'll fling the incoming rounds BACK.

If they have the energy to they can, though the most efficient thing to do is to push them off enough to miss.

A good reason for suits designed for marine work to have a receptacle for a power plug to the ship's main reactor.

I have a cloud brush that i modified from a PS default. But almost all my other work is a hard edge round with opacity and size controlled by pressure. I love round brush :)

Is there a limit to how much force they can deflect? =P

Cause it would suck to be an elemental in space if your gettin hit by super charged rounds =[

Shimmering-Sword Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Yea seeings as actually stopping a naval shell would fling them of the ship, they just push it to the side, also applying as much force to anchor themselves. ON the ground they have enough power to stop conventional stuff.

If I was an elemental I'd petition for safety rope... one made of high quality steel fibers. ]=<

I'd actually want a carbon fiber/graphite nanotube blend. Much stronger than plain old steel.
