Reactionary Attacks by Shimmering-Sword Reactionary Attacks by Shimmering-Sword
I took XenoFrobe's kiriban request, butchered the idea, and turned it into a painting of my own (I think he still likes it though :)) Also featuring an Elemental that I created for my number1 fan.

A tank fires a glancing shot narrowly deflecting of to the side of an Elementals shield. With her approval the suit AI quickly returns a cutting field through the tanks turret ring. It should no longer be a threat.
(this scene could make a lot more sense / work better, but it's a pretty lose piece)

A shield device. In my story they're quite versatile.

Soldiers in power armor that use versatile energy shields.

I have a question. Are all the Elementals women? This isn't a critique, just wondering.

Been trying to figure out whats wrong....but i think i get it now...
Everything is proportionate...except her face.....its too small for the body...
make the eyes bigger and we should see only the eyes....and a lil bit of the top of the nose..
But otherwise awesome artwork...

Love her hair. Too bad it's probably not military standard, else I'd join in a heart beat. :D

I saw a similar design for a tank in Command and Conquer concept art. For the stillborn 2nd FPS version I think. I like that design so much but I suck at drawing mechs, its easier to draw people for me. Great work!

You know what you did to her face.

P.S that is a hard read, I'd say add a blue trail from where she sliced the damn thing because those lines in the sand are like the last thing I noticed other than that, you've got everything you usually do. Mechs, more mechs, and girls in powersuits.
