I think any props artist should have a weapon or two on his portofolio,so I want to add one myself.I really wanted to make a sniper model for a long time,first I wanted to do the classic Dragunov,but I think it's a bit too common,everybody has a Dragunov model,so I've just searched on Google sniper rifles and I chosed a Barret MK22,since it's intricate enough and I think it will showcase my modelling skills.I will have to model some weapon with wood insertions sometime in the future,it's something I want to do.Anyway,here it's the first blockout and me trying to figure out shapes(this thread is also too keep me motivated,as when I see reactions from you guys it keeps me going 😘):
It's going on slow but steady.Here is a high poly update:
Unfortunatelly Sketchfab only accepts files smaller than 100 MB and I'm way over it,so I will post the next updates on image format.Some details of the high poly:
Worked a bit on the scope:
Ok,high poly is almost ready.Latest shots:
Great work ;)
Wow,finally I've got some time to model and unwrap the low poly,it ended up at ~ 40k tris,maybe a bit high but I'm plaesed with how it turned off.I've just made a basic materials pass for now,trying to get the materials to look right.I've uploaded some pics,but you also can check the model on sketchfab,I would really like some feedback.Thanks and have a nice day!
Today I've did some of the details,as the embedded writing.Here is some pictures + some wireframe shots:
Almost ready,I just have to make the bullet material and some adjustments on the plastic material.Since it's almost finished I would appreciate some feedback.
Finally,it's done,it was a fun project.I've tried to get the composite material right,not sure if I'm happy but I've spent enough time on it and I have to move on.Next step,how can I get some portofolio feedback,should I make a new post?Also,I would love to hear from you what should I do next?I tought something simpler like a fire hydrant or something but I'm not sure.Anyway,final renders:
