Gun Concepts I by JxAir Gun Concepts I by JxAir
Some gun designs I sketched using Artrage 2 - First time trying to draw some proper guns, quite happy with how it came out. Would've liked to add colour, I may get round to that at some point or add it to future designs.

I designed all these from my head, not using any reference photos - So if you see any weapons using a similar design I'd quite like to see!

Weapons: (left -> right)
1. Assault Rifle -
Your standard medium-long range rifle, I was thinking it'd be more of a 3-shot burst kind of gun rather than full auto.
2. Shotgun -
Pump action 8 round shotgun with integrated lasersight/flashlight module.
3. SMG/Battle Rifle -
A weapon more suited to close-medium range, full automatic. Designed mainly more for room clearing and general close quarters combat.
4. Phase Rifle -
Much like 1 and 3 combined, medium to long range full auto rifle that uses a battery pack for its ammunition rather than bullets. Shoots concentrated bolts of light energy, (or ';phase' - hence the name)
5. Phase sniper -
Semi-Automatic long range sniper rifle, uses a battery pack like it's fully automatic brother.
6. Pistol -
Standard Semi-Automatic close-mid range pistol, 12 bullet clip. Integrated Lasersight/Flashlight attachment.
7. Assault rifle & Grenade Launcher attachment -
Fully automatic medium-long range assault rifle with a second handle at the front & trigger that launches a grenade from the integrated attachment. Can only hold one grenade at a time.
8. Phase Pistol -
Semi-Automatic pistol much like the first, but uses a battery pack and fires phase rounds instead of bullets. Also has a built in lasersight/flashlight attachment.

Very good on the whole, especially for a first attept without refrences. The one improvement I can suggest off the top of my head is to make sure that the fore- and rear-sights of the assault rifle with GL attachment (#7) line up properly, right now the front sight is too low compared to the back sight. Other than that fantastic.

Thanks for your comment :)

In regards to your suggestion I did actually do just that in a later piece of work where I "revamped" all the designs. Check it out on my page if you like!

Nice, the top-left gun sort of resembles a HK G36, at least the handle/intigrated sight part. If your interested come check out my guns, I just started on them so I got alot to do for my game concept.

These are awesome! :love: I'm working on a digital art piece right now and I was wondering if I could draw one of these babies in the picture *begs* Its sort of a futuristic kind of piece and I have the hardest time drawing a gun from imagination. Don't worry, I would give you credit and everything :aww:

NEVER!

Just kidding, sure thing. Though if you can wait a little longer I'm currently working on a revamp of these designs, so you could use those instead.

I'm looking forward to what you come up with though :)

Ok, thank you so much! I'm planning on posting the rough sketch soon, so I'll use one of these gun concepts for that just so you can see what my idea is, but I will wait until you post the revamp to check out those designs for the final piece :aww:

If you wanted it to feel more 'cinematic' then you should put two black bars, one on the top and one on the bottom. Reinforcing the point that this is a cinematic experience. However if you want to keep the player more in the game then you should have the cinematic happen from the player's perspective the whole time, with guns, H.U.D., everything.

haha well it still looks good.

Those look really good. Are #1 and #4 halo inspired?

Somewhere along the lines they might have been haha, I can see the resemblance to the Battle Rifle with #1 and one of the Convenant weapons with #4.. Can't say I was thinking halo when I was drawing them though =P

Haha, just seems funny. They look really well done though. Any reason you drew them or just for the fun of it?

Thanks again =) - It was for multiple reasons really, I drew them as concepts for weapons that'll hopefully get used in my game idea - I've already modelled #3 as a test. But it was also for fun! =D

Are you going to post your #3 modeled? And what sort of game are you thinking about making?

I could post screenshots of the gun, though I'd prefer doing so when it's textured.
The game would be an FPS/3rd person action game. I did a very rough concept of the kinda idea I have for the game, you can see it on my page.

Well it would be cool if you did a half wireframe, half full textured. Also your mock up for the game looks good, only thing missing is a bit of a H.U.D. and from the perspective shown, you would need to include the gun from the player's point of view.

Not a bad idea, I'll keep that in mind :)
And with the concept I get what you mean, but when putting ideas to paper I just think up these sorts of 'Action-shots' as I like to call them, that just capture a moment in the game from a cinematic perspective.

Hmm, that description is probably better than the picture itself haha - I do try though =P
