Obviously fan art isn't something I generally tend to do. Recently, however, I've been messing around with 3D modelling instead of fractal art and decided to model some of my favorite weapons from Phantasy Star Online, to better familiarize myself with modelling stuff. Of course, didn't concern myself with low polycount (~125k faces raw, 420k including subdivisions), and there's more than this duo of amazing guns that I modeled from the ground up (but they don't look as good as this...yet!) which may find themselves in a scene sooner or later.

Modelled in Blender (2.66a) and rendered in Indigo (3.6.21) for roughly twelve minutes.

This just got you on my Watch list! Brilliant! I am one of the many who thought this was real! :D

Thank you very much!  Although I'm unhappy with how the normal mapping turned out (I since know what I screwed up doing and how to fix it!), I was immensely happy with actually making something like this :)

looks like your render is making a lot of people look twice, even thrice to check if it's real! :#1: great job :D

That was the intent!  Although I notice very obvious errors....you probably more than myself given my limited experience in this...I still learned a lot from making these XD

OMG SO REAL MUST TOUCH *A*!

Whoa! That is damn good! 
I saw this in my notifications and thought they were cosplay props at first! 

If only I had the skill to recreate these as real props... Though it would be a waste without a Ranger costume as well...

Thank you very much!  I tried to make them seem somewhat realistic, so hearing that makes me happy :D

Wait for 3d printers to work and eventually it might be possible to recreate them ;o

3D printers are already a thing, it's just really hard to make the model. 

And it would need to be hollow so I could make those green parts actually glow using LEDs. Wouldn't be TOO hard, but not too easy either.

I should have been clearer and said "allowed for more customization options and at a better price point."  I know they're a thing (I have a 3d printed model myself, actually got it a few years ago as a gift), and if I'd have a 3d model of something done, I'd want it done right and in high quality.  It wouldn't be cheap, and I'd likely have to revise the model significantly to allow for detailwork to be added, and make structural changes so parts of the model itself don't break off.  Obviously I couldn't use lightweight metal/carbon fiber for the gun body, and a rubber grip, and I'd have to build it such that I could piece it together and physically take it apart for light-up glowing.  I couldn't easily fit a lens in the scope afterward unless I made it as a separate, detachable part.

I would like to see it printed for giggles, but I don't know of the feasibility for it and don't honestly think it's worth pursuing at this point in time unless there's serious motivation to do so.

That would be a lot of work, but I must say, these would be great for a cosplay.

Though I expect that 3D printing will become much cheaper as time goes on, and more and more places have the printers, as well as the technology and parts becoming cheaper from more places producing them.

This is 3D?  I swear I see tape on the off handle.  This really looks like a cosplay prop.

It definitely is 3D!  Getting triangles like that to glow IRL would be a pain without some nice internal LED setup and batteries, plus I've never really made props like that before (take a look at my gallery and you'll notice a dearth of any purely handmade media).   If you reaaaaly want proof: sta.sh/02ghuu72ac1g

This is awesome! I thought they were real at first!

So this is 3D art? Dang, looks so real! Maybe do the Heaven Striker next? =P

Yup, it's 3D art!  I'd show wireframe but there's so many subdivision surface stuff on it that it'd be hard to see individual polygons XD

It always would be a possibility to do that in the future at some point.  At the moment, however, I'm trying to get a full scene done (five weapons, Red Ring, Pioneer 2 background), but it was going slooooowly and I decided to do a standalone weapon render.  It may ultimately be more productive to just do that...but I want to /try/ an interior scene first!
