    Alright, got some fixed versions of my Ripper model just in case anyone didn't like the version that I made. Tell me how I should improve these and I think I'll be able to do so.

      Pretty sure this thread is dead by now. But regardless, I'm still going to be posting stuff. And once again, make sure to give me feedback on this next Ripper Model (even though this thread is probably dead)

        I like the new position of the clip. But I think you should use modifiers as soon as possible. MultiRes and Mirror are really useful in these situations.

          Finally, thank you, someone gave me some feedback. I'll get to work right away!

            I tried to subdivide the stuff, but it only made it look worse. Looked ruberry and non, metal, like the gun should REALLY be. Anyway, here's some more Rist-Person WIP of it. Ignore the circle above the gun, you won't be able to see it anyway once everything's finished.

              Another updated WIP model of the Ripper. Hope you all enjoy the progress I'm making. And I hope you all give me some feedback on this. I have used modifiers on some of these parts.

                You shouldn't use dark colours in the blocking stage or else we see only the silhouette.

                The blades or horns are in the way of the razor-disk.
                Try to go more for a sleek design ...especially since you try to imitate the UT99 model.
                Because of imitating ...I'm not so thrilled about the design direction. I would suggest a more unique approach.

                Think about something new but with the DNA of the original weapon.

                    Usually the best view you can offer in concept threads like this one is a light grey material, rendered with a gouraud shading with wireframe superimposed. It allows to see the model in a human-friendly way and it gives an information on the geometric topology. The later is good for people to give you advice on your modeling technique.

                    Here is an example of mine:

                      Is THIS what you meant by "sleek" ? BOOM!

                      AND a first-person model as well. And... behold: Modifiers!



                      Seriously though everyone, thank you for the support, or at least the feedback. So many of you guys want a Ripper implemented in the game. And you know what, I'll give it to you!

                        More updates. This time it doesn't have a first-person model. So as to show the new stuff I added to it.

                          Not bad... But what I also meant was "Think about something new but with the DNA of the original weapon".
                          Think outside the box.

                          Here this is what I'd come up after seeing your last alteration.

                          One strong blade at the front, sleeker, more alien... It's a derivation of a Skaarj weapon let them take it back and modify it even further.

                            You've made some good progress! I actually agree with paper coffee in that you should explore the design some more and I really like his sketch.

                            You still need to work on the fundamentals of what makes a good 3d model but that comes with time and studying. Look into subdivision modelling which is a broad subject but its the bread and butter of this art form. Once you start grasping the basics your gonna be able to identify problem areas on your own and design much more quickly.

                            You can always field questions with me and I'll try to explain things or at least point you in the right direction.

                              WICKED concept. If you made that yourself (which I'm really hoping you did) , It looks amazing. So amazing in fact, that...



                              BAM!



                              I got to work on it right away.

                                Try to identfy the depth of certain parts from papercoffee's concept. Extrusions are necessary!

                                Plus, try to use only quads in your topology. You can also use triangles, but only if necessary, while you cannot use n-gons since they make a mess with the modifiers and the game engines don't recognise them well.
