Concept of scifi rifle – Box-er
Let’s make collection bigger. As I run my way I began prefer organic lines and design in my concepts. I found them more interesting and need some skills to model them. But a lot of people prefer “boxy” design, I know that. Boxy design has good features; they are easier and quicker modeled but they often look too “flat”. It could be a tricky to save in few boxes some believable structure and not to look flat or boring.
Ok. This is my try. Body has boxy style so I invested saved polys into scope. Colorization is between silver and white as I haven’t used it so far.
I did two perspective pictures and one tech drawing. (Each has resolution 1920x1080.)

Is it good or bad? Tnx for comments or critics if any.

Designs: It looks like a box.. and that's a bad thing. If you're aiming for that big, bulky design, try to draw inspirations from real life weapons. I personally think that a "boxy" gun gains most of it's details from massive amounts of extrusions and mechanical parts (gas tubes, sights, muzzle brakes, trigger groups, carrying handles,...), without those details the guns would looks quite bland.

Try lengthening the barrel, redesign the butt-stock and the grip, and extrude parts of the gun so that it'd be less bland looking, a back-up sight being added would also bring up more details in the back and the front of the gun, details the gun desperately needed.

Modelling: Great modelling with good lighting although textures should be much more detailed, especially with the model being very bland, adding gradient to the texture sheet is a welcoming change.

The bump on the grip looks a bit much, tone it down a bit.
What do you think?

Once again, you need to think more about internals, not nearly enough space for the feeding/ extraction cycle and the length of pull is way too short. The pistol grip on all bullpup rifles needs to be in the center of the overall length.

That aside, its a beautiful design, very reminiscent of the HK G11 final prototype but it looks unbalanced because of the incorrect position of the pistol grip.

I also strongly disagree with the previous critique, good weapon design is not about bullshit extraneous details and contemporary weapons are the shape they are purely due to function and ergonomics. Almost all projected future designs eg, The Crye rifle concept also used in Avatar are very simple and less cluttered externally. Again, google the heckler and koch G11 to see a very "boxy" design that was decades ahead of it's time in terms of revolutionary engineering.

The model is far from "bland" it takes more courage to stick by a simple and functional design than get dragged into pointless detailing which serves no funtion. One point I somewhat agree with is some folding emergency iron sights would have been a decent functional detail to add in case the main optic is damaged in combat.

Keep up the good work!

This looks awesome. I'm looking into getting in to modeling with 3ds-max, as I have free acses to the program while i'm a student in Calgary. This thing looks like it should be made by tediore, from borderlands. very sleek. GJ, i'd buy one of these if i could. and just hang it on the wall.

If I may suggest sir that you make the scope in the same shape as the gun. ( boxy ) it will make the scope very futuristic as well. Just an observation.

Being that at one time i have been in the military,your designs are very realistic and detailed,i would have preferred something similar to this weapon...i.e. not open to the elements...fast easy simple.
The weapon looks balanced assuming the rounds are loaded into the butt of the weapon.....does'nt matter when an individual is firing a weapon in the heat of the moment,one does'nt think of balance....or aesthetics.
As long as it is easy to fire maintain and is accurate,& has a large clip full of ammo....I think your designs are very well thought out,instead of just thrown together like most current weapons in production.

I love the concept of this. It would be great as a loose hip firing close range assault gun. But I notice you've put a scope on, which would suggest you'd need a firmer grip for fine distance aiming. This is usually only achieved by holding the stock against your shoulder for stability; not very comfortable with this design. I know it breaks the concept, but perhaps curve out the back end to groove into a shoulder? Or add a rubber section to allow for this?

I really like it, such conceptions look real future like. Even some people may think itīs boring, it makes sense. Btw a year before i did this [link] what shoud prove how much i like this^^
The old-style scope is cool and didnīt feel displaced, but a holosight or something more future-kind would have a good look to.
See the barrel, looks like energy weapon or something, this gives a little question about the chamber ejection(or whatever the right term is...IF it is this).
Under the line - simply thump up:)

It looks really awkward and hard to hold. I mean, when you hold onto a pistol the base of your palm is on the back of the grip. This gun doesn't have that. I mean, I suppose you could put it to your shoulder for support, but the butt looks to short to do that and use the scope. I don't know, maybe a sketch of someone shooting it would make it clear to me how this works, but it looks like a mix between a pistol and a rifle that just wouldn't work to shoot.
But then, what do I know about guns? :P

I''d totally want one if they were real, but you did the boxy grip again.

It would be so awesome if you had a contrast between the strong metal body, and a smooth form-fit grip. Alas it was not given.

It looks really cool and it made me want one.
Then I noticed a slight issue with how it would function.
With the magazine so far back, you don't have room for the inner mechanics to load the bullet into the chamber.

But it's definitely possible to bring the handle and the trigger back slightly
then put the magazine in front of the trigger. It would keep the same look and the function would make more sense.

I thought about this when I considered making an airsoft version of this gun.

Wait, so... why are you keeping a polygon budget if it's a still render? As far as I know, you can have as many as you like, but the more you have, the longer it takes to render.
Reply
:iconpeterku:
peterku Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2013
my computer needs upgrade its not one of the newest. My experience says that it does not matter how many polygons you have in scene. stronger effect on time of renderings have the chosen materials and mainly how many lights you have in scene.
