Speed Painting, Armor and Vtol by Shimmering-Sword Speed Painting, Armor and Vtol by Shimmering-Sword
A few speed paintings I did one night a few weeks back. I have a few things to post, all backed up from my recent flurry of projects.

I really need to work on my dynamics and effects :(

Love the design of the helmet, and don't get me started on the VTOL

The effects on the top one.
Amazing.
Is she/he using a sort of stasis field to block a round?

ah! even your speedies captivate the imagination
love the effects on the top image but i get the sensation that he should be leaning into it a bit more with the upper body, just to give it that look of bracing for impact.
the blue red contrast is striking though, you get the feeling of a strong clash. well done for sure.

really loving the airship design too, are those guns on the side? if not i can't seem to find a major function for them lol
i can see those inflicting some massive damage though, reminds me of battleship cannons.

Amazing work and i love the ship it's big.... very big with things that look dangerous. Can't have without what looks like two large railguns attached to it's wings.

Do things go boom when it shoots?

I can relate there. I feel like most of the good stuff I make is too static. Then again, I don't get in the regular practice I need to get better come to think of it.

Dynamics, motion, flow, all that subtle stuff is tough but lends to much value when you improve at it. We'll keep practicing :)

Yes-yes, I need :iconmoarplz: pics to steal it from you for my plot :evillaugh:

j/k, I had an idea of such kind of sci-fi armored suit with "special abilities" and it looked just like your Elemental Armor. That was before meeting your gallery. Maybe this is some sort of information connection, eh?
