Energy Disc - basic by peterku Energy Disc - basic by peterku
This is concept of round energy gun. Its designed for sci-fi environment full of halls and corners - Long distance free space station. To bring difference It has shape as a disk and is assembled of 4 parts grip, energy magazine, emitter and electronic in upside. Aiming is provided by 2 laser lights up and down on emitter. I covered it into cool black police shine suit. I did 3 pictures:

People used to warn me that the text is not readable. Pictures are quite big. They needed to be open in original size. I just dont want to put big text all over the pictures.

Model is highpoly, all made in 3ds max and I rendered in via Vray. Model itself has 18.682 polys and 19.788 verts (all before turbosmooth). To keep work easy and quick I used only one simple texture for grip. All others are clean vray materials.

Okay I can see this in the hands of several species from My sci-fi RPG world. When I look at something and go..Welllllll Now...That is perfect for ( insert character or critter) I have to smile.

 

The grip looks a bit uncomfortable for human hands, and a little crowded, not enough room for all five fingers, and no real secure grip for a human hand....BUT, It is a perfectly reasonable grip for an alien hand.

 

The lack of any definite sighting system would also make it a bit intimidating to shoot for the typical human, but in a sci-fi world having it linked directly to some sort of HUD, eyepiece, holographic, or helmet display, or even a laser pointer type aiming system turns the slight drawback into an interesting feature.

 

The curved shape of the lower section and fore section screams for a crescent or curved  energy blade or force blade projection system. allowing it to be used as a melee weapon as well...okay maybe that's too many first person shooters talking but it does seem like a valid modification to add :D

unique, but honestly looks too impractical, no way of holstering it, how do you aim it, the canisters? (the shinny mettle tubes that look like gas cylinders) are too unsecured and their mountings could be too easily damaged.

I first saw this and thought it would emit an energy blade of some type. Its a bit odd shaped for a energy based gun.
