Default Manga Gun

A little while back I asked for a gun tutorial, there wasn't one right for my needs so I had to go it alone (scary stuff, lol).

It going to have to animated being assembled (in the end).

C & C welcome as always.

... wow, my first 2 WIP threads ever in the past couple of weeks

4 pics showing different stages of development.

Great work. Maybe more light and shadows to get the "ambient"... =)

Congratulations ...

p.s: Do the bullet time thing =) the bullet getting out slowly and with waves .. =) hehehe

Cheers,
Jean Carlos

I will do all that sort of stuff when it's finshed, there is a tutorial here (somewhere) that teaches you how to do the bullet time effect so i'll have to do that.

This character that im making has 2 big guns, one white and one black so expect more updates as and when I can.

Gotta finish my Wile E Coyote first (T minus 2 weeks and counting) but then it's Manga style action all the way.

Well that's more of an optical illusion, that handel is the right size but the barrel is abnormaly long. It's hard to see with no texture or hand to give a sence of scale.

I've tweaked the model and cleaned it up a bit, not too much that Im going to post it. You should all like it when it's done (provided I don't mess up on the texturing and lighting again )

Cheers mate, it's not easy but you learn soo much. I've started the scary part of texturing, it's not going to bad, I will post my progress in the next couple of days.

Cheers for the interest.

So you are going to model Arucard aswell as his guns?

Good luck, i've tried and failed. I was going to do a 3D image from the seen when he's fighting (if thats what you call it) one of the brothers (can't remember his name) when the mansion is under attack.
