[Done in my Small Sketchbook, with #2 Pencil, 0.5 Mechanical]
The Hexoid Elite is the cream of the crop of the Hexoid warriors, and thus are always being outfitted with newer and better designs. (Mostly because I can never decide on one!) This one took ages to sketch out between classes, and still could have been a lot better. The shield arms are a recurring design element all the way from Mk.1, and those I am quite satisfied with, along with the legs.
Compared to the current models – this one certainly is way too bulky and heavy-looking. And it’s hard to really see how the limbs bend and move, there being no dynamic pose here. Still, compared to the modern design, there are a few elements that definitely stuck…!
