So I am still undecided on which weapon type I will be making, I am keeping my options open. The starting concept will play a huge part in this contest so I want to make sure I make something unique and awesome. I have a few ideas below, just quick sketches. Wanting to get some feedback and pick out 1 or 2 of them to really dig in and detail out. So let me know what you guys think.
Latest and Final:
Phew, here it is, the final submission. It was fun, I learned a lot thanks to bobo and the feedback. Good Luck to everyone and good night.*
Nice to see everyone busy working and so many great weapons popping up left and right as the night continues. Here is my latest texture update. I am finally starting to like it and get over the whole "its never going to be good enough I should just start over" phase. The spec is just a place holder while I finish up the diffuse. Going to go over it with color variation pass and then I think it might be ready. Let me know what you all think.
Alright here is the full, finished Hi poly. I added a little arrow brace to the bottom to bring some of the detail from the blades down and make it more solid. So have at it, tell me what you like and don't while I begin on the low poly, and once that's done I may go back and change a couple things depending on the time I have. I need to get to baking and texturing asap.
