Two Queens by Shimmering-Sword Two Queens by Shimmering-Sword
On one side of the board.

Kristen Marx and Nayora Sharp, my 2 characters with the most development to them.
Marx is the first pilot to take an Elemental out of the testing grounds and onto the battlefield. Becomes and remains field commander of the program for her military career.
Sharp comes in a bit later, so they wouldn't be seen with similar ages like this. Like many other later Elementals she develops some very unique skills.

I didn't sketch these two side by side so their proportion styles vary a bit.

So what's the deal with Marx's eyes, anyways?

They look kind of ornamental... and also prone to infection. Regardless. Hope you think of something to your satisfaction.

Burn Scars, eh! Well that totally sucks for her. She needs to learn how to play it cool. Because overheating is the main problem with machinery period.

Seriously do you have a story out? Because I'm completely vested into your characters and a I haven't read a good story in awhile.

Slowly working on a backstory document, but I'm not very interested in writing so anything substantial will have to be collaborated on.

Lovely to see you do more work on your characters. The one glaring thing I notice, is the one on the right. Her shoulders seem disproportionate to her body, maybe drawn a little too low? Something just seems off about them. As well as her torso seeming a bit too short, though that might just be the pants? But, for straight up sketches they are lovely. Keep it up!

A bit low I guess, and low shoulders would make the torso shorter, one issue creates another.

Very nice work man, i would love to read about these characters if you ever write a novel.
the girl on the right seems to be a bit more male with her body proportions (especially the arms) perhaps if she were more lean and defined with her muscles?

as always, i'm not expert with drawing characters so feel free to disregard =p

You should be glad they look the way they do, future Elementals, the True Born Elementals, male or female, put body builders of every caliber to shame. [link] [link]
