Badass Gun Concept by mythrilgolem1 Badass Gun Concept by mythrilgolem1
just another artorder piece:

"I'm looking for a handgun. A really beefy, bad-ass handgun. It can be based on a real-world pistol, or can be a completely ground-up concept.

I've got a few parameters though:
• Should appear operational. In other words, I want a handgrip that appears like it can be held, an actual trigger, latches and switches for safeties/bolt locks/mag releases/etc., and sighting devices (fixed, scope, red dot, etc.).
• Should be able to hold a minimum of 8 rounds (if bullet based)
• Should be identifiable as a handgun.
• This is a concept piece, go it can just have rough color, color washes, or it can be fully realized. I'd like to see more than just line work though. Degree of finish will not be a significant aspect of judging, but it can help set the mood.
• Last but not least, should incorporate a skull in the design. It could be integrated graphics, a mechanical aspect of the gun, or in the silhouette of the design. What ever your warped little mind can come up with, but it has to be in there."

having never done gun designs or even knowing how guns work >_> my first sketches were judge dredd style scifi stuff but it was too obvious a route so i decided to do something odd. drawing a little influence from south asian weapons/sculptures and mixing it with bs gun mechanisms, I give you the "Rudra Tandava" or alternatively "Dance of Destruction".

This looks surprizingly plausable for a...mega overkill skull death device.

would you mind if i posted this picture as well as credit to you on a game site i play on? The game is DFO and they are looking for gun designs, I'd like to suggest your design to them. I won't do so without your permission and if allowed to do so I will ensure you receive credit for your work.

i seem to be getting this steampunk thing a lot lol, i never intended it to look that way. hmm maybe victorian england was influenced by all the art within the british empire.

That is some really nice work there! ^^ I love the texture on the bone ( I assume it's a large chunk of smoothed bone or very possibly wood on the back for the handle) It's really nicely done and looks very realistic! If you were going for wood on that part, I immediately understood what it was. Also, your light source and shines are really nice, gives it an old-world meets new-world feel. I love how it incorporates tribal type designs with modern steel. ^^ Makes me imagine a native American cheif designing a handgun. XD While of course the design aspects are purely decorative, it still does look awfully badass. Great work! Also, one last thing - I LOVE those subtle textures in the metal. ^^

Very nice looks, but:
1) The barrel diameter is too large for the rounds
2) The feeding mechanism looks like revolving chambers, but the barrel is centered in the ax, so feeding the rounds to the barrel looks kind of difficult. Aka the barrel needs to be higher.
3) What is the second trigger for?
4) Unless the barrel is very lightweight, which is kind of impractical, it makes the weapon very unwieldy and makes it look like it's more efficient as a club than as a firearm.
5) The barbs at the handle will hurt if you wield it
6) The knife should be longer to actually deal damage because it can't go deep into the body if a target.

I understand that you have little-to-none experience in gun design, but please consider my post as positive critique.
