That looks awesome! :dance: It should probably have the barrels arranged two over one, though, in keeping with the dual drum/cylinder design (assuming the outer drum/cylinder holds twice as many shells as the inner one).

This would've been much more effective if it were some sort of gatling shotgun, but apparently it was just too much.

One thing: If it IS a shotgun, then why does it have rifled barrels? That would make an O-patterned shot rather than an even spread, which could reduce its effectiveness.

no clue! lol. i was about 17 when i made this and had no idea how guns even worked. i just like the aesthetic aspects of weapons. i am mentally more intrigued with form rather than function. one of my downfalls.

so no clue why it has rifled barrels. just knew it looked good

Wow, very nice!!!!
alzlon Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2009
whats the point of the 2nd and 3rd barrels? i see no extra triggers and i don't see how the ammo could cycle into the chambers. the only way this would be useful is if you had special rounds in 2nd and 3rd one, like HE or shot. not much else, a nice looking design no matter the problems.

Reminds me of the protecta shotgun.
I think it's the clip i dunno.

omg, i cant stand autoCAD... how did u live through it to make that?! (which, btw, is ABSOLUTELY SWEET!!!)
malmida Featured By Owner May 21, 2009  Student General Artist
well at the time i had never seen anyone very good in autocad. so i never really saw any good art from it to make me feel inferior and want to quit lol.
thats one theory.

i think all in all its just a fantastic tool. it was like some insanely hard puzzle that i spent tons of freetime on just figuring out. eventually i developed tricks and learned the program inside and out.
soon ill be making a youtube tutorial explaining my techniques, since ive yet to find anything like them on the internet. so far anyway.

autocad is sorta like invisible legos. easy to work with once it becomes natural.

Nice use of the blue!
DethKlaus Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2008
Where can I get me one of these? lol
Seriously, though, it's an awesome design.
DeadPegasus Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2007
I think I understand how this thing works. Or, at least, the reloading process. Each time after the gun is fired, the barrels spin along with "O" shaped magazine. Click-Click-Click. That's how the barrels are reloaded. Right?
malmida Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2007  Student General Artist
yup :)

but your better checking out hydra [link]
which is an updated version of this. i just keep this thing around cus its the first thing i ever posted :3

A tri barreled shotgun would make short work of zombies.

Like the design.
Just add a bit of antialiasing so there are no jaggies in the picture.

I dont think auto cad was nessicarily the most apropreate package choice to model such a beast.

I've used Cad and making abstract shapes is a bit painful ^^; how did you model that?

interesting piece though. I like it. could use a bit of texture though I think that would be a fine game model for the concept ^^
deadmemory Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2007
...that's amazing. I love it! ^^
