Opposing Programs by Shimmering-Sword Opposing Programs by Shimmering-Sword
Done in an OpenCanvas session with some friends. A sketch of an offshoot program of the elementals, may or may not keep the idea (first started years ago).
If anyone knows me from PK, you may know these guys :)

Is there any chance you could record yourself drawing these? I am really inspired by your art and would love to see the process you go through :)

You can watch me working live on my Livestream channel (I have a journal for it), it also records the streams so you can watch old ones too.

the idea of an opposing group capable of going toe-to-toe with elementals is suspenseful.i like the pose and the way the arms look long,very malevolent and intimidating.

The elementals are still unrivaled in their technology and skill, but once the enemy gains a technology that has effect, all they must do is scale up it's application. Meaning many squads of these monsters to a single Ele.
The Rangers are strained for resources compared to the long standing empires.

Hmm...An old ranger design? i might use this for needle point, havent been able to think of a good suit design for the first E-suit

This one is like a stripped down mass producible unit, with minimal armor and frame, made up by the heavily genemodded clone user. They're made solely for the purpose of engaging elementals (once the program is stolen).

[link] This is an earlier revision to the elemental.
The true first shielded armor were ASBA suits though.

This type was a canceled extension to the Ranger Elementals, but I may bring it back as their enemy. Like stolen tech.

I'm not as good at working in OC anymore. If I worked in PS it would probably tighten a bit. Quick one too, smudgies ftw!

The helmet reminds me a bit of the purple robot in the anime Neon genesis evangelion (which I have never seen, but Ive seen trailers and such.)
