Made a few modeling tweaks. Changed the upper wiring adding two more wires which seems to be what is in the reference image.




Minor refinements...I think it is safe to call the modeling complete.

Really like the attention to detail on this, it very much makes the whole model work.

Thanks Dave.

Do you think the additional wires make it look to busy? I can roll back to the previous version if necessary.

I have the UV's almost done. As you know I am not the best photoshop painter but I am gonna give it a shot.

I really want to see it painted and weathered. I am gonna try to do both paint schemes from the reference images at the start.

No I don't think you should take them away. for this type of fantasy gun i really like them, I think they help sell the alien tech thing.

Almost a shame to texture it, you can hide a multitude of sins with some decent textures, but on this theres nothing i can see to hide.

Nice job, again i love the attention to detail.

Almost done with laying out the UVs.

I plan on spending some time going through a few photoshop tuts before getting into the painting. The last time I tried jumping right into PS and it was a very frustrating experience.


Photobucket seems to have once again changed their website and I am not sure of the above link is working? All my previous links seem to be okay but if I try to click on this one I get a nasty-gram saying I am trying to perform an illegal operation.

Let me know if it is borked for you guys as well.

Well that answers that question. I do not see why the link does not work I have compared it with the previous ones and the syntax looks identical???

Try following this link

I just put the direct link in [ IMG] tags, so long as the picture itself isn't too huge. Looks alright though from what I can see, looking forward to some black paint.
Oh hey, I can see the image if I click on one of your other ones and click previous to the 1st.

Personally I hate the site changes to photobucket. I think the last set of changes were horrible and these ones are out right ghastly.

It pops up windows and crap when you try to go to your albums and just seems cluttered and clumsy.

I have to agree with all the rest! I'm amazed at the level of detail you managed to get with modeling alone. I'm looking forward to seeing it textured!
