haha, looks great man. though it is a thousand years in the future, not sure revolvers will still be popular then

except if its a plasma-funky-particle revolver

good way to merge mellee and longer range man.

good luck on modelling

The characters's back story will explain ALL........(but the general idea is closer to the Bolt-Guns from Warhammer 40K than Star Trek)......

Having noticed that there is a similar weapon design on another contestants entry, and even though I posted my idea first, I'm gonna stop with the gun-sword idea..... Instead I'm gonna push forward with a more beserker approach....this guy is an unstoppable machine moving from one war zone to another and wading into the thickest fighting with whatever piece of weaponry he fashions out of scrap metal....concept ideas to follow........

Cheers dude, you've made me smile (with modesty). To be honest though, while I've worked in the games industry for the past 7 years and have created hundreds of textures for various characters, mechs, vehicles etc. this is the first time I've had a go at just "painting" something from scratch (i.e. no original photo source) with just Photoshop and a wacom....It took a while but it's really all just shades of black and white in the end (plus a little red, green, brown, blue etc. etc.).........
