Patching some holes in my portfolio in anticipation for my visit to Siggraph 2012 in L.A.
These are to strengthen my weapon design portfolio. The emphasis here was to showcase my ability to quickly create a variety of very different looking concepts. Not spending too much time on the details at this stage. In a studio environment, an art director might have me do a few pages of these, then pick and chose the elements from several that work well, and have me develop it into a more finished concept, which would then be handed over to the 3D team for modeling.
These are meant to be assault rifle weapons. They go from more contemporary at the top, to more outlandish and futuristic as they move down. The first three would use conventional ammunition, whereas the bottom three would use technology that we don't currently possess, such as hybrid energy/kinetic ammo, or purely directed energy discharge.
This image is my intellectual property, reposting welcome, but please credit! If you would like to use any of these designs for a 3D modeling project, please message me first. Thanks!
Some gun concepts gleaned from a large batch of thumbnails I did a few weeks back. More portfolio stuff.

Edit: Been getting numerous requests, so: You are free to make models, replicas, personalized designs, and otherwise utilize these designs for your own work so long as A: They are not for profit, and B: You link me the finished piece!
