thanks! I Am actually also a canadian and I was born loving the way guns look...I dont know why...there is a strange disconnect in my mind between what I draw and the the guns that hurt people... I totally understand people that don't like guns and im happy that you can appreciate the design despite the subject matter
many people have asked about the round design... so the thought I had when designing this was to minimize the parts that can get caught in clothes or straps. Also it protects the important parts of the gun from getting bent out of shape.
I love this weapon. I'm still impressed how you draw so seemingly realistically. :3 I like the lighting effects on the weapon as well, you can easily tell the difference between the metal and polymer. This weapon looks like you could also use it to bash somebody's face in. lol :3
I love the design. I have only one issue. Now please understand I love your design and I adore kickass weapon concepts like this. I only offer this critique as a person who has shot guns before. Okay quick and dirty. The standard magazine size for a 9mm pistol is about 15 rounds. A glock 17 9mm comes standard with 18. The magazine size is only about 4 inches long give or take. The magazine you show in your design is twice that long and yet in the display information for it you say it's 19 rounds. For a fully automatic SMG 19 rounds sounds odd. I would just adjust that number to the standard hi-cap mag round count of 30. 30 is the magic number full auto magazines tend to be. It's the standard for the AR-15 and so on.
first of all : i am very happy to receive comments like yours, I welcome any thoughts about my designs and I admit that many of you guys know way more about guns then I do.
about the mag.... I am familiar with the double stacked Glock mags and I agree that my mag is way to long for the amount of rounds I specified. I chose the 19 round single stack magazine because that is what the micro uzi uses and I may be wrong but i believe the single stack configuration jams less under bad conditions then the double stack.
Wow this is beautiful...love to see a fellow weapon designer creating something as unique and interesting as this. Probably one of the most aesthetically pleasing weapons I've seen, and I love the alterations to the generic machine pistol mechanism. The overall shape reminds me of a couple of my creations (and I am therefor a fan of it d, but hot damn that paintjob blows mine out of the water
To address the conversation below, I'm assuming your concerns are towards the seemingly restricted mobility of the hand on the trigger? Going on this assumption, I entirely disagree! While it would in fact get in the way of your wrist were you to fully extend your arm, this is no handgun, and holding the weapon and trying to control the kick in this way would be impractical and dangerous with the high rate of fire.
No, the method of holding a machine pistol is similar to an SMG. Close to the body, slightly hunched over the weapon, wrist bent to the right (cleanly avoiding the narrow piece on the back), and a second hand holding things steady on the foregrip. I see no issue, and I love the design Well done!
thanks ! i know what you mean about the extra bit... it bothers me as well. I try to design weapons from an aesthetic standpoint but i find myself bothered by anything i would not want to carry into war...
And that's why we've got awesome weapon artists, and awesome weapon designers There's a lot of "That is sexy as hell, the composition is perfect... but how am hands?" then there's even more "God, that's brilliant why isn't someone manufacturing this?" pixel and M$ Paint drawings it's a sort of balance of putting the focus into the art and style of it and figuring out the workings and ergonomics, I suppose.
