Ghost Bear Elemental 'Dvergar' by Tabnir Ghost Bear Elemental 'Dvergar' by Tabnir
#103

If there's any one thing that I can credit for igniting my passion for battle armor it would have to be the Clan Elementals from Battletech.

Here's my take on the 'toad,' with stylized Ghost Bear insignia.

I love how you gave something inanimate such weight and immensity.

YOU SIR HAVE MADE MY LIFE.

I am a total whore for Elementals and this one is BAD. ASS. I'd say what I like, but as I look over the drawing, I come across something that makes my nerdy, armor-loving heart skip a beat.

The SRM pack.

The battle claw.

The small laser.

The way you translated all the hallmarks of an already iconic suit of battlearmor and made it into something altogether more awesomer. <--- that's actually a typo but it is the best adjective I can think of that describes what you did.

*cries and hugs you*

Wow. Awesome job, although don't Elementals have an anti-personnel weapon somewhere?

I'm teaching a friend in Romania to play Battletech TCG over skype, so I decided to modernize all of the cards. I used your art for Berserk Elemental Point [link]

Elementals were never given proper respect in the video games, and it bothers me greatly. Here's hoping that they'll portrayed properly in Mechwarrior 5.

I don't believe there will ever be a MW5, with the series being rebooted by MW3015.

Huh, I guess that's what they're calling it now. Where was I for Mechwarrior 5 thru 3014?

Tabnir Featured By Owner May 23, 2011   Digital Artist
To be precise though MW3015 is not a renamed MW5. It's nothing at all the spiritual successor of the MW-X series, especially considering the control sacrifices needed to accommodate the [afaik] Xbox as its primary platform.

Quite frankly the best Elemental rendition I've ever seen, so much better than the ones that look like they are in a giant upside down cereal box.

Awesome, man. Looks a bit like a Spartan from Halo but crossbred with a Covenant Hunter. The only thing I don't like are the missile packs and the polar bear arm peice. Otherwise it totaly rocks
