The Delta Eagle Crossbow from Nanao's Vampire AU fanfic.
In her story, itís actually a specialized vampire killing firearm that uses the modified wheel design to hold additional rounds. I had a lot of difficulty incorporating the large wheel into a gun design. In guns like revolvers, the barrel rotates perpendicular to the body of the weapon. After a few failed designs, I gave up and drew a crossbow instead. That way, at least the bow string loop around the wheel to give it some extra oomph.
Was inspired by Haradaya of Nippon Ichi for the colors, and my childhood for the background... This environment doesn't look all too Japanese, perhaps, but see it as a Nordic touch. In some clear nights, you can even see the Great Hakurei Border at the horizon...
I'm kinda sorta working on an oRin illustration book. I've applied for Winter Comiket, and if I get in, I'll do my best to make it a reality. If not... maybe some other time. This is the first finished illustration. I was inspired by the Hell levels from Diablo 3 for this, and I wanted to try to paint something similar. It might not be perfect light-wise, but this is the best I can do now, and I'm still happy with how it looks. The main focus is supposed to be the environment.
