Quicksilver Industries: 'Hellcat' PDW by Shockwave9001 Quicksilver Industries: 'Hellcat' PDW by Shockwave9001
Quicksilver Industries proudly presents its first piece of weaponry: The "Hellcat" PDW.
Chambered in 5.56x45mm (.223REM) NATO, but easily adaptible to 7.62x35mm (.300BLK), this little monster may even be the very best PDW on modern day's market.

Quicksilver Ind. produces top of the notch firearms made for easy and cheap mass production, while maintaining very high quality. Our firearms will always be fully ambidextrous, multi-fire selection, integrally suppressed, two toned, operator-friendly and accessory-friendly.

-------------------------------------------------------

This started out by thinking a lot about having my own company lately. Not that my original intention is to have people join my group, or to grow large as a group, but more to have something to label my custom guns as. "Shockwave Customs" just doesn't do the trick IMO. However, if people seem to be interested in joining, I'll think about it again.

Also, I really would like some decent feedback on this one!

Yours truly,
~ Shockwave

Love the design I would like to make a 3d model of this one just for fun, do you mind if I do so? I dont want to use your design without your permission.

You seriously think my first Quicksilver gun is the best of them all? Haha I mean sure, if that's what you like! But in my opinion I've made far better designs. But if you want this one, then I'm cool with it. I'd love to see it in 3D! Will you tag me in the photo?

You ever thought about having someone making skins of your weapons for CS:S or SWEPs for garrys mod? This shit would be awesome as hell

Well, I can't say that I have, but it's a pretty good idea.
Unfortunately I'm not sure if anyone wants to do that for free, and second I don't know anyone who can/wants to do that.
Do you?

I don't know anyone personally, but you could always try Siminov, who did the Insurgency weapons, Spy, who did the Firearms Source alpha SWEPs, or even Doktor Haus, who does some very decent weapon skins and SWEPs.

There is no gurantee they will do it, but I recommend them because they do quality work.

I see how you did the nylon strap.... You're a tricky one, arn't ya? lol, bloody excellent design, mate, keep it up.

Also, I'm doing a text-based RP based somewhat in the future, but I hate using most gaming pics because they don't send the message I want for the setting. Would it be alright If I used the 'Quicksilver' range for the current-day weapons systems? I'll provide full details of your awesome and links to your account on the page.

Sure thing! Least I can do for allowing me to use a designers work. Take note, though, that the intro itself is kinda sketchy [in my earnest opinion... then again, many have praised me, so I don't know what to think :/ ] and if you're reading onwards after that, there will be quite a bit of me swearing at myself because of the various things in my life that had gone wrong within the OOCs. Plus I'm in the middle of actually moving the RP to it's own dedicated forum thread, rather than within an amalgamation of many other threads.

Whew, that was alot of words. Sorry, I get pretty detailed when I'm in this mode Blush lol

Awesome looking, really like it! Just one comment: The rear half looks a bit too long, so overall (and especially since it is a bullpup) it looks too long and lanky. I think a real world version of this would have a more compact firing mechanism (esp. if it's only a .223/5.56mm calibre) which would bring the butt forward more, making it shorter. Front half looks proportionate, BTW.

Thanks a lot! And thanks for the feedback as well!
I used the preset ACR to measure the size of the mechanism, and it's exactly that size. I also used ACR internals, so it should be right.

well designed, but for a pdw its too big of course.
and whats the sense of making all models supressed?

and yes. such rifles are made to kill just people. no other purpose. neeever forget this. for the lack of deeper thinking on a site like deviantart, u could make ur opinion to weapons sticky on ur front page.

For me it's mostly style though. Especially when it comes to Sweetwater Precision Weapons or Scottish Industrial Armaments. I go for realism when I build for Valkyrie Rifleworks though.

And it's not that big, actually. It's a lot shorter than the MP5A2, and about an inch (IRL) longer than the MP5A3 with fully collapsed stock.

i want to give a helpful crit if i can .... mainly because yeah, this thing is cool looking and I noticed you wanted a useful crit. But first - from the comment above. What exactly isn't, or can't be ambi about it? Next, is it PMG, or are you just using flash, or a combination? I mostly bash PMG but your gallery suggests that it's just a tool for you and i can appreciate that.

:iconshockwave9001:
Shockwave9001 Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
My work is, and always will be 100% PMG. No photoshop or whatsoever. Why? Because I can build everything I want in PMG, so why use third party apps? I prefer PMG over every tool I used in the past to create weapons.
Why do you bash on PMG, if I may ask?

And thanks a lot man, I appreciate it.

Mainly because its not art. It doesn't bother me until someone tries to pass it off like it's more than it really is. It just seemed like there were guns in your gallery that were not pmg, but apparently you put that much work into them and that's cool. I think that if you we're to branch out from it though you would find infinitely more freedom to really create. It's clear that you are outside the box even while using pmg and your product still looks perfectly plausible. For that reason I think it is limiting your potential. Still, I mostly delete my group watch but this gun caught my eye enough to look and even read what you had to say. I'd only encourage you to bust out and explore your own skills because I think you've got em. In the context of pmg, my crit is that there really isn't much to say. I think you are probably one of the best pmg users I've run across as far as creativity with it.

I'm afraid that's where our opinions differ. I have to mention though, there aren't a lot of people who qualify as a PMG artist. Why? Because there are so many people who post nothing but presets. But, if you're a veteran shapeworker like myself, then yes, you are an artist in my eyes. I don't think my work is that much different from yours. (needless to say, I build more for style, and you build more for realistic designs. Correct me if I'm wrong though.)

PMG is simply a tool, as you said. I'm not sure about what programs you and others like you use to create what you create. When you were talking about "bust out and explore your own skills", were you talking about doing the same as you? How long did it take you to get to the level you are now? And is it hard to build something like this? [link]

I have to thank you for your kind words though. It's quite a compliment coming from someone who doesn't appreciate the tools I use in the same way as I do myself. That said, you're very skilled as well at what you do. You have some amazing work in your gallery. Be proud of it :)

I guess I should clarify. I don't mean doing what I do. Or at least, I have no reason to tell you to do it HOW I do it. What I mean is, with PMG, you are stuck with what you have (unless you are actually creating the stock with Flash - which is how I think the actual artist(s), who created PMG, does it). An artist created stock, and you use it, and you're stuck with its limitations. Even taking a pencil, creating your own fictional part, then bringing it to life in whatever fashion you see fit, would be very liberating. Or at least I would think so.

As for me, I use very simple Illustrator and Photoshop tools to create the line art then render colored images. It's not time consuming or difficult at all, but I suppose a fair amount more than using PMG stock. I can't say. I mean, I've used these tools for almost 15 years and I've drawn guns since I was a little kid. But that's not to say it's taken me this long, or that it would take you that long.

Anyway, really it's just a friendly suggestion. I just figured for once I might try to give some useful feedback. You're doing cool stuff and you will continue to do cool stuff, no question.

A question beforehand: Have you ever used PMG? I'm getting a feeling you either haven't used it at all, or just took a quick look around.

Let me explain it a bit. In PMG [link] you have preset parts, made with Flash by the creator. (Dr.Noob)
But besides all those preset parts he implemented shapes. Squares, rectangles, circles, etc. [link] It's exactly those shapes we use to create our own parts, because Dr. Noob hasn't updated the app in ages. Take a quick glance at my photostream on Flickr [link] to know what I'm talking about.
We can export the code of those shape-made parts and share them with others via pastebin.com or any other paste website. That way we aren't limited to preset parts at all, and that's exactly why I like it and why it didn't get boring fast.

Long story short: the limitations you speak of aren't completely as you claim them to be. Quite a good example would be this: [link] It's 100% PMG made, and 100% shapemade.

But to be honest, Illustrator and Photoshop makes all of your work look far more realisic and professional than PMG ever can. Um, wait. One more example of what's possible with PMG: [link]
Brought to you by the best PMG'er alive.

Some people have suggested 3D artwork for me as well. It's probably a lot harder than Illustrator and Photoshop, but in the end it could result in a job as a 3D modeller I suppose. But I just like how PMG works, and how things can turn out with some effort and patience. (and the Flickr community is great)
To me, this is just a hobby. My carreer is in the Airforce, so I'm guessing a hobby is all it'll ever be.

I thank you for the suggestion, though. I really do.
By the way, I found out that you take this as serious as it gets. Do you work for a company?

No arguments here. I work for a lot of people anymore, but not doing much of this stuff. I do spend a lot of time "funding my hobbies" on the side though. I am in the process of picking up some 3D skills and I would say that it is further from "drawing" than anything else which is where I guess I think it gets harder. It doesn't feel especially natural unless you have a sculpting background, which may even be a stretch. At any rate, keep it up and good luck.

Bullpup weapons (like this one) are not ambidextrous.

But great job btw ;) I really like.

Yes it is. There's an ejection port, fire selector, charging handle and magazine release catch on the other side as well.
And you're saying there are no fully ambidextrous bullpup weapon? How about the P90 then? Or the AUG?

Thanks though :)

:iconnarkae:
Narkae Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2013
it's about the ejection port :p
Here, on your weapon, it's on the right.
So if you're right-handed, it's okay. But if you're left-handed, you'll have this on your face I guess (like the french Famas weapon, it's ambidextrous, yes, but if you want to use it as a left-handed you need to disassemble it).

And I really like the other rifles too :p

:iconshockwave9001:
Shockwave9001 Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Don't worry, I know what you're talking about. The FAMAS isn't fully ambidextrous, as it doesn't have an optional ejection port at the left side, like the AUG. All you have to do to the AUG is switch out the bolt for a lefty and change the rubber dust cover that's on the EP to turn it into a left handed firearm. Though, now that I think of it, the charging handle is only on the left side. (there's also no upper receiver to put it on the right side either)

On my weapon it is on the right, but yeah, I didn't post a left side version, did I? haha.
Of course, it's easy for me to say it's on the left side as well.

Pretty sweet looking, but you have the ejection port on the right as well as the safety selector. Unless it's ambi, the safety is set up for left handed shooters and the ejection port for right handed shooters. Either awkward movement for righties or you get slapped in the face by spent casings for lefties. lol Either way, I'll still buy if you got the bullpup design to work properly. :)
