    For the number 4 I am liking the C version but turn the spike on the back end upwards.

    As for the 3 I like F, C and A. I like a because it has a mocking laughing look.

    Comment


      Personally I think the bottom line for the 4 is clearer (no space beetwen the left spike and the bottom spike). The others are too confusing. G, H, I and J are good candidate for me.

      I am however not pleased by any of the 3, they doesn't look like this number to me. The middle part should be more present to distinguish it and identify it as a 3.

          Alright lads, I've got loads of new stuff here.

          A1 is showing the inner barrel's magnets off. A2 has thicker barrels and tries to emulate the more brute minigun-ish feel of option B.

          Here's a strange thing though, While I think I overdid it with C and D, My friend particularly likes the muzzle ending (basically a flash hider) of option C. What do you guys think about putting that flash hider on A1/A2?

            I choose C

            C: Looks futuristic, long pipes which look deadly/spiky. Although kinda strange ending but when I imagine it firing this one has the best fire coming out of its pipes(mainly because those end pipes spread fire on all directions not just forward, at leas in my imagination)
            A: hard time picking between A or C but C kinda looks more futuristic/powerful while A kinda looks like a standard gun. Maybe if it was little bit longer (like C). Also I kinda don't like that polished ring ending on pipes end.
            B: Pipes don't go along polished design of base, base is all shiny/futuristic while pipes look old-fashioned/made of concrete. If base was a little more dirty/not shiny it would look better in my opinion
            D: Pipes are short and I don't like that the end of gun doesn't end in pipes sticking out like in A,B,C

              I like C, especially those gold colored bits.

              C would also look better with that cool design from D that would go after the gold bits on C.

                I personally would be with you on this one InVader, I feel like C is a little too much and make the gun too noisy. However I would suggest not to make the barrels too thick ro too cluttered, as you will hide the inner parts and mag rings. It's important to distinguish it so when picking up the gun you instinctively know what it's all about.

                  I like A2 the best. I guess because the rest of the gun already looks sci-fi/fancy enough, that it's good to see the barrels still looking "gun-ish". I feel like if you go with C or D, it's almost like you're trying too hard. If that makes any sense.

                    Man, it really starts to feel like it's coming along now.

                    Here's some early work on the display. Since this is a minigun and uses a lot of ammo, I think some kind of bar indicator might be a mindful addition. It would let you tell at a glance approximately how much ammo you have left. I was thinking about implementing this as simple light bars along the edge of the part that arcs over the laser pointer. As you deplete ammo the lights of the bar would go down as well.

                    Sorry for the strong bloom.

                    I think maybe the rings at the front are the only thing left to tinker with now... Well aside from the belt, which isn't visible anyways. And because it's not really visible anyways, I wonder what's the laziest solution I can come up with, beside the tractor beam idea we had earlier.

                      Changed the ammo display a very little bit (now in level with the surface). I might still change it to something more stylish. I was thinking about a very small projector lighting up some kind of glass from below. The numbers would appear as if they are on the surface of the glass, while behind the glass the dark internal circuits and wiring and stuff would be vaguely visible.

                      I decided not to add the bar indicators to the side of the arc over the laser. That area already feels a bit cluttered because of the laser pointer. Maybe a meter/bar indicator below the display?

                      Also added a little tarydium shard to the side of the balancer as a gemstone along with the shell.

                      Also added lights to the inner faces of the balancer.

                      If I don't change anything else, only thing left is the ammo belt. Although changing the ammo magazine like I mentioned earlier with a tarydium crystal overgrowing its front part still sounds intriguing. More than anything else I just want to finish this already.

                          It needs more color like gold highlights.

                            Beautiful work so far! I'm really itching to see this in the game! Just thought I'd drop a suggestion about that ring at the front that connects each muzzle (it's too plain/boring imo).
                            Here's kinda what I'm thinking:

                            It could appear to serve a dual purpose, to hold the barrels together, and accelerate a shard.

                            Keep it up InVader!

                              HNNNNNNNGGGGG!!! Imma change the rings right away!

                              For now, here's the ammo belt in an animated gif. My sincerest sympathies go out to anyone working with particle systems in Blender with Cycles. I think I've just experienced what's it like to give birth as a man. Well, at least it's a prefect loop ^^

                                For the front ring, although I agree with Envarion that it could serve as a coil as well, keep a little bit of silver, maybe alongside the blue lights, while keeping the space in beetwen the lights black.

                                As for the the belt effect, I feel it's a little bit... too sparkly as in a kid friendly magical show ? Instead of more technological. Maybe make the sparkle more regular, as in a line as opposed to randomly popping ?
