Sketch Crab by Shimmering-Sword Sketch Crab by Shimmering-Sword
This time we have an off-shoot design related to the Elemental's predecessor. This suit has no advanced energy shielding, but it offers thick armor while maintaining a relatively compact size and high mobility. It can also lift rather large weapons, making it a great anti-armor unit.

Been browsing through your gallery and I gotta say this is my favorite non-Elemental design. Masculine, in contrast to the Elementals femininty, though the helmet feels empty without any of the rabbit ear sensors. Also, kudos on the Elementals design, the way you segment the armor and the general physique gives off a feminine air without being fanservicey. I'd really like to see what a male counterpart to the Elementals would look like though.

It's entirely possible, but I don't see them being very successful so I haven't tried too hard to find out. I did try a few times, no replies.

...Something about the posture makes me think of sarcasm. As if this soldier is very quietly biting his tongue, holding back a vaguely annoyed remark directed at his lieutenant.

I love this one's helmet. I really do.

one thing I think could have made this better would have been a reference link to the other Crab PA pieces you've done. your gallery is getting rather large and the simple inclusion of a link would allow more to compare and contrast images to see how the design evolved.
