Tethered Dance by Shimmering-Sword Tethered Dance by Shimmering-Sword
Heres something I worked on for a few nights spread out over a few weeks, glad to get it done. I wanted to show off one of the more uniquely techniqued Elementals I've thought up.

This Elemental has developed an interesting way of utilizing her shields. Instead of the most common wall and linear motion force attacks, she uses rotational motion to build up kinetic energy in what appear to be invisibly tethered shield blades.
Standing with a varying number of these cycling points surrounding the suit, which can have their attributes adjusted in many aspects, all generator power can be concentrated into extremely precise and potent attacks of defenses. While a great offensive tool, having the same requirement of precision for defense leaves the user vulnerable, so elevated care in battlefield awareness is a must.
How these forces at play operate still sits in a theoretical state for the scientists and technicians that work with the Elementals, continuing to show how little is known about the true potential and nature of the material that runs shield generators.

I love her posture, so relaxed and so cool. Kinda moving under water or bending lightning by the that calm technique of İroh. Great work love it and love you for drawing those epic things.

She must have been a nightmare as a little girl... "I'm not touching you, I'm not touching you, I'm not touching you..."

That form of helmet. It's kinda familiar. Is it from anime, literature or video game?

I love the logic behind the image, though the picture itself is fantastic. I look forward to exploring the rest of your gallery!
