Hyperion by peterku Hyperion by peterku
More people suggested me to make laser gun so here it is. Concept of laser rifle. Objective was to make shine solid metal piece from the sci-fi future. It works with light beam not with projectiles and therefore there is no recoil. Instead of stock I use its place as handle.

I uploaded more pictures of this project. There are pictures from various angles and sizes + wireframes of model in my gallery.

All work was done in 3ds max + vray as engine. Model is highpoly. Structures of model is visible in wireframe posted in my gallery.

They say that a picture is worth as much as a 1000 words, and to be honest, this applies here.

Right here, you have in front of you a beautiful piece of work. The 3D modelling is flawless.
The design is original, and the stock handle is not something usually seen. Also, I don't see the usual mistake which people make when making laser guns, here the trigger in this weapon is actually a weapon.
The weapon, itself, is easy to imagine being used. The proportion are about correct, and the binocular is a nice touch.
The colouring is simple yet excellent, and the metal blue and iron/silver touch really hints a SCI-FI feel.
And god. Oh god. This rendering is simply magnificient. Good use of light points and mirroring. The shadows really bring up the design well.

Now for the cons:
Taking in the design considerations, I see some simple flaws which isn't really a big issue but is worth mentioning.
First of all, the weapon doesn't have recoil. That's true. But last time I checked, energy weapons (especially lasers) make a lot of heat, and I don't see exactly how the weapon loses its heat in efficiency.
The clip, or battery in front of the handle (At least I hope it is) seem difficult to remove if used (imagine yourself removing that clip to change it. The handling could be better)
What do you think?

One word - beautiful. The only improvement I would make is to add a shoulder stock. This could be done by simply extending the grey section on top of the grip back, or by making a stock attachment. I don't know what it is with futuristic weapons, but people like to leave off the shoulder stock. It actually helps by increasing the stability of the weapon, making it more accurate. That aside, this is a game-worthy model. I especially like the scope and grip design. Very sleek, very sexy.

It definitely has a sci-fi feel to it. The coloration is excellent, and could suggest a military or even civilian use. I wouldn't worry too much about how it operates, as that can come later. However, madcomm is right, the battery pack (magazine?) is in an awkward (if streamlined) location. The weapon would have to be held vertically to reload, taking the muzzle off target. Instead, try a side mounted magazine.

All-in-all, a very original piece that has a great deal of character. I look forward to seeing more designs like this in the future.

I love this, your designs are awesome!

I did at first think that, that handle at the back looked as if it would get in the way. But I looked at some other weapons and its actually fine. And not having a stock would make it more maneuverable (like a sawn off shotgun).
