So over the past few weeks I'd been diddling around with the weapons the Humans in my scifi universe would be using. I just finished this rifle tonight. I'm doing the Human military/culture as a mix of contemporary and 30s-50s style.

Next up is an SMG. ;)

Anyways, I'll be using this thread as a depository for all the art I've done that isn't map related. There will probably be a heavy image dump sometime in the future LOL.

Cheers. :P

Looks pretty cool.

One suggestion: I would lower the opacity of the stripes in the background. Catches to much attention from the rifle in my opinion.

I'm looking forward to see your next guns! :)

Here are some varients of the a machine gun. Which ones do you guys think I should use? I'm liking all of them for diferent reasons.

After I decide on an outline I'm gonna start painting it up. :D

I like #3. That thumb-hole doesn't look like it would be comfortable. And if someone knocked the weapon out of your hand, you'd risk breaking your thumb.

Plus, I just like the modular look of #3.

If you choose # 1 or 2 you look like you are going with that thumb hole theme for all your weapons. Maybe if they come from the same manufacturer it could serve as a trade mark 'thumb hole'. Number 3 looks compact yet lethal. #2 looks the most intimidating and #1 just looks too dang big to me, unless that forward hand hold also serves to connect to a tripod in which case that rocks the socks.

I'm really feeling #2 and 3 also. I'm not sure about the thumb hole either because the rifle above doesn't have one and I want the manufacturing philosophy to be consistent. I do like it's aggressive nature though. hmm...

There's a bit of SA80 about these shapes - the stock I guess. If it's an assault rifle then #3 for me.

It's because they have a "bullpup" layout which is gun speak for when the stock contains most of the internal workings of the gun. (Not that I'm into guns, I just spend too much time in the GURPS web forum.)

I think I'm going to go ahead with number three but make some slight tweaks on it. Will post up some progression later. :)

Look very mean!! I like it. The only thing that puts me off a bit is the brown. If it's wood then it strikes me as "old fashioned"? (Yes, I read the 30's 50's bit but this design strikes me as "modern") Modern stuff would be easy to produce plastics (which your brown could be I guess?) and take advantage of all the camo possibilities that technology affords. Urban camo with the grays and that purple is one of my favourites. You could buy the thing with a whole bundle of naff clip-on camo kits.

Yeah I imagined the 'wood' portion would likely be a strong ceramic steel. I went with the brown color to fit with the retro motif. :)

Taking a detour from the guns to do some environment art.

Thought I'd create one of the points of interest from my Project Cosmos Universe - The Devil's Pearl.

It's 90 percent painted and with some photo texture work to save myself some time. This technique is usually done for matte paintings. I'm currently studying master matte painter, Dylan Cole's work for inspiration.
