Elemental Gunslinger by Shimmering-Sword Elemental Gunslinger by Shimmering-Sword
More art from The Protectorate Wars pdf art book.

This is one of the first Elementals encountered by Udzima Wa Wasi forces. Quite a shock considering the first strikes made by Protectorate forces hit far away in Prostor and Parvam territories.
During a raid by the Protectorate, more a test of strength than anything, elite Udziman infantry forces managed to track down, engage, and even capture this soldier. Though soon after the Protectorate raiders hit back and freed their squad mate.
Having not yet mastered advanced shield forming techniques, this Elemental utilizes an arsenal of firearms, and also equips a retractable ballistic cloak for additional protection.

Mind-numbingly cool.  I'm pretty sure your elementals are the coolest thing I've ever seen.  No exaggeration.  They are like Noble Team meets Iron Man meets a drone from The Culture.  I just can't get over how cool they are.  I'm going to spend the next decade trying to draw them.

Great picture. Faved... though that's a given for your artwork:D
I wonder if revolvers and assault carbine use the same ammo here? And is second revolver holstered upside down?
It's also great to see that you haven't forgotten that exosuit should be connected to legs and feet as some other people do. Good to see those side knee connecters. The knees themselves(the plate is very thick and angled near the end in such a manner that it makes it look as if knee is supposed to be there instead of slightly lower) and underarmor in croth/thigh area(once again those thick plates) make it look as if she has robotic legs though:(
And sorry for being an absolute insensitive a//hole, but on topic of comment down below about "her being feminine without breastplate with actual breasts displayed on it"... well, how should I put it... eh... you know what? Nevermind.

Honestly looks like an infiltrator or a sniper. Otherwise, a rather good scout.

It can be quite effective at the latter two, though if it's shield systems are on it's kinda hard to hide from sensors in an infiltration role :D

Very cool character. I really like the helmet, with the jaw like face and the bright eye lights, it looks like some kind of badass alien (maybe a zoid or something, haha). Nice stuff.

Not many examples of ear fins and multi camera eyes out there?
I came up with this concept before ever seeing appleseed :D

Sort've though the ear fins was definitely making it a fun rule 63 variety of the bunny protagonist when you include the boot details, is the center part of the helmet a visor part to see through or a sort of main camera like a mobile suit?

Shimmering-Sword Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2018  Professional Digital Artist
It's a visor yes, for if the camera systems fail.

hehe  your not gonna comment on the third weapon???
an the ballistic cloak would make good "tactical light camouflage cloak." .. wrap round you , stay still " poof " invisible (mostly) or when moving it blurs your outline to make harder to hit..
anddd??? any reason the arms are not as armored??
also the PDW is caseless,, cuz no room for the bolt to eject after the magazine well..

but over all,, love this :)

:iconshimmering-sword:

The arms are lightly armored, notice the forearm plates.
The PDW is not caseless, and caseless weapons still require normal bolt operation and ejection in case of malfunction or to unload the weapon. There are already modern firearms that require no more than a magazines length behind the magwell to operate. The bolt carriers majority of volume operates over the barrel, not behind/inline with it.

Are both her guns conventional bullet-spitting projectiles or rail guns?

Chemical propellant weapons, though with stronger materials to allow higher powered propellants.
Then you can at least rely on your gun to work should you come up against any ewar/emp too fancy for your own tech :D

They copied the trend from scifi artists that had been doing these types of helmets/suits for years.
