Heat Shield by Shimmering-Sword Heat Shield by Shimmering-Sword
Kristen Marx in her Elemental. In the future I'll have to work out an defined look for the progression of Elemental armor designs during it's development in the story, but shown is Marx employing her earlier and more crude abilities.
One of the easiest offensive employments of energy shielding is to run the field extremely hot and pass it through the enemy. Shown is a pillar field being extended, appearing as a beam of fire. Also on display is "skating", sliding on a blade of shielding, using the rule of cool technique :)

Oh, man! You're my favorite author, honestly, probably because I love mecha and futuristic science fiction things and pilots and suits, and just....damn. The ideas behind these masterfully crafted pieces absolutely astound me and make me want to formulate a story from your ideas and the messages/stories that these pictures themselves manage to convey.

To put it simply...your artwork makes my mouth water.

I never would have thought to use energy shielding offensively.    Very cool idea, and excellently executed.

It looks like the left hand controls the beam? But the hand could use a cooler "pose" in my opinion. Maybe more light because it's the source of the beam so the hand would be really close and reflect more?

The way this armor was designed sort of in a way outlines the shape of Briareos from Appleseed:Ex Machina, though with a more realistic, lethal and agile looking design. The colors with the sparks having a red-ish orange sheen with the cool cerulean blue for the back unit make a simplistic, yet dramatic and tense, atmosphere. I think that this is a truly magnificent and powerful piece of art, very impressive.

I love the blue glow off the back and the yellow glow on the helmet. Reminds me vaguely of Iron Man 2's disposable wrist laser thingies.

Looking forward to more.

my,my, quite the way to reel in the year!i love the balanced use of lighting and energy effects.plus the meticulous attention to anatomy can be clearly observed in the way these subjects were depicted. of course your style of materializing concepts can amaze just about everyone.the best trait of all is that you always bond functionality and design so well that us viewers are left in a state of awe.

How would you even take down a fucking elementalist, I mean come on! Shielding, laser blade fingers, heat blades and lasers, forming giant fucking shield monsters. I gotta say, I don't care what they believe in, in any conflict I'd prefer to be on the side that has elementalists, there's no way you can win any other way.

They make up for their smaller industrial and personnel capacity with high tech units like this. It's still possible to kill an Elemental by drowning it in bodies :D
