Running The Gauntlet by Shimmering-Sword Running The Gauntlet by Shimmering-Sword
Fun speed painting, practicing effects, lighting, and pose. 3 hours of work.

An Elemental makes a run for someone of "interest", trusting her shields and some luck to stave off what some would consider more pressing issues.

It can do so, but isn't what's doing the job currently.

I saw Elysium the other day, and the device that Kruger uses to generate a shield around him immediately reminded me of this

Awesome effect on the shield. The dual colors is a brilliant way to convey the boundaries, and you keep it from looking boring by giving it action with the selective use of the energy-force yellow/orange

Quick question: With these awesome works of art, is it more about the feel when you're drawing, or when you drew this, did you already know EXACTLY what to draw?

:iconshimmering-sword:

I knew the design I wanted to go with, and a general feel to shoot for too, but there's always some experimentation with it.

Oddly enough my favorite part is the contrast of shadow and golden light under the aiming arm.
And that's pretty epic for three hours! I totally need to work on my speed painting.

the rugged surface and the overall atmosphere blended with the impression made by the figure satisfies the aesthetic sense greatly,kinda like the yin yang concept.anatomy and proportion was not overlooked along with the details.things are where they should be along with innovation.and of course the pistol and the sword created harmonious balance.other than that,my minor complaint is that i like quad eyes very much.
