E-horn by peterku E-horn by peterku
This weekend job. Concept of scifi gun - electric rifle -  for fictional scenario. No ammo, but energy pack-battery. I modeled only main body, scope and barrel. Smaller parts are from my database. Worked in 3ds max, used vray rendering engine and finished it in photoshop. Model is highpoly. I did only one picture this time, but it is big as usual. 


So what do you think. Do you like it or not? tnx for comments if any. bye.

Oooohhhhhhh I WANT ONE! XD
If I had to guess, I'd say this is a carbine or light sniper rifle, not an automatic rifle. I like the design, as it appears to be made for the ability to either hang back and take precise shots or leap into the action and running combat. I kind of feel like the stock should be used for holding spare batteries, should you run out of power in the middle of a fight.
Also, the biggest problem with energy rifles is the heat created. I don't see any form of cooling system, which makes holding this gun an intimidating thought after the first few shots. Switching out battery packs would also burn you, as they probably heat up with use.
I like the design of the scope, it fits the gun perfectly and it looks like it has a nice range to it.
There is one thing that looks just... weird to me. Due to the shading, I can't tell if the barrel curve is concave or convex. It appears to curve inwards, which means the inner barrel is very thin. This makes a thinner energy bullet which makes it a weaker shot, and makes it harder to penetrate thickly armored enemies.
Overall, this gun is nearly perfect and oh, how I wish I could have it.
What do you think?

This is very good. Most people coming up with guns like this seem to just throw in any appealing feature whether it makes sense or not, but this makes over all sense. I'm only concerned by the exposed bit at the base of the barrel, because it looks like it reciprocates and if dirt gets in there it might disable the weapon. I would just want to see a rail where the fore grip is or something to indicate it is on a rail, for the status lights not to be lights or be better concealed, and for the fire mode selector to be a lever but the slide would work.

Tnx you mate. I know. Now it is popular to use in design very exotic forms and shapes and a lot of feature just because we have Zbrush. I like minimalistic design in general. And those fire mode selector is pointing out all the time :). I probably start using standart one. :)

I like on the last few guns you've made the ammo clips visibly different form the rest of the gun. Warning labels are also a nice touch.
