incredible. I'm getting into some of this myself. Just started my first gun, just a cheap water pistol. Do you mind If I ask some questions? or maybe you could make some kind of tut? My rust doesn't look bad but I like yours a lot more than mine, so I'd love to know what you use for that. Also I have no clue how you made the wood-like handle and it could be useful to know that.
Well that's the thing. There are so many different ways to go with this, and it's really hard to decide. I think I'm going to take a photo of it, live trace the image in Illustrator, simplify it to it's basic shapes, and do different colored versions. I'm thinking of giving it like a Mars rust look. I'm at least certain that I'm going to put a sheet of leather over the hand grip though.
Yea. I may be a nerd, but the possibilities are truly overwhelming. I like too many genres of geekdom to limit myself to straight sci-fi, steampunk, or grunge. I'm going to have to find some more guns.
