Drawn with a mouse?
Well you've certainly earned yourself a 9/10. But is it just me or his right arm seems a bit off? The neck seems a tad too big or it might be the helmet that is a tad too small. Other than that, Excellent work.
Just out of curiosity, which version of photoshop did you use?
I believe the version I've used it CS2.
Thanks for the review.
Very nice concept, but I do have a few questions.
Wouldn't having heavy studs on a clip (looks more like a magazine) be a bit cumbersome? I say if there were to be a melee weapon on this gun, then it should be on the gun itself. Hitting someone with a clip doesn't seem to practical and since its a bit far back on the gun the barrel could get in the way.
Also 2 questions on the reloading mechanism. As you may or may not know the force from the bullet being shot kicks out the bullet casing and reloads another one into the chamber. I see no such mechanism present. I just seem to see a big clunky piece of metal there that seems to be firmly in place. Which brings me to looking down the iron sights. The big piece of metal on the back, wouldn't it get in the way while looking down the sights? I know its a close range weapon but even so, most close range weapons have irons sights themselves.
One more thing to add, usually when I see those magazines (or clip) they are usually facing the other way. But for the reason of putting the studs there it's justified but just in case you needed to know.
I know this is fantasy type gun but drawing fantasy guns require a certain amount of knowledge about guns themselves. By looking at this, I can see you sure do know alot but Just pointing out some of the flaws.(i may be right i may be wrong, who knows?) Despite what I mentioned before, this gun is actually very creative and alot of thought has been put into it. Overlooking the flaws I really like this artwork. Well done.
I'll try to answer as many of these as I can.
The Studs wouldn't be cumbersome, but as for your second question, yes they can be a hard and impractical to use if the barrel got in the way.
The reloading mechanism is inside the gun itself, as to keep the sights in place even when the gun is being fired.
The big piece at the back is more of an Eotech style sights (kind of like a red dot sight from CoD4). The way it works: A laser invisible to the human eye is sent forward by the device underneath the barrel, and the Eotech sights have a special type of glass that can make it visible when looked through. This way, even if the sights are too far up, when you look through the display glass, you should be able to see the exact location of your target.
Thanks for the thorough review. This gun may look like it has many flaws, but it's basically because I didn't take the time to explain it well on this site (I drew this for something else). However, you are absolutely right when you say that the studs may be hard to use if the barrel got in the way. Other than that, I don't see why any part of this weapon shouldn't work.
Of course, it would not be practical in the real world. But I didn't want to make the weapon as realistic as possible. I just wanted something that looked bad-ass and started drawing.
Hopefully, that answered most of your questions.
Not only Is this a true work of art, it also gave me a severe laughing fit. Well done.
I try to nitpick at imperfections I see in people's artwork but I have absolutely nothing to complain about. It's creative, very well made, the lighting and shading are perfect and most of all it just looks plain awesome. Great work.
