One of the future projects we have looked at undertaking at Digital Raven, is a reboot of our first collective project which was a Star Craft video. Several months ago I set out to re-image the relatively short script, and tweak it into a series of web shorts.
Based on the fact that we are not focusing on Space Marines in full armor I had to come up with a weapon that would fit into normal unassisted human hands. Using the Impaler as the base model and looking at some of my favorite “futuristic” looking guns I came up with the N15 Enforcer.
First let’s look at the C-14 Impaler, designed to be wielded by 9 foot tall power suits.. needless to say, I needed to come up with something that fit this style, but was smaller.
So step one was to look at guns in a simplified form… in this case as silhouettes. I also dragged in a P90 and a KRISS, as they are two of my more favored futuristic weapons.
Based on those I came up with this outline of the N-15 Enforcer…
In a lot of way the detailed line version is a pretty good guide, for a prop maker, to get a handle of how to put it together. But often times it is a lot better to get the entire idea, coloration and details down before passing it on here is the value study of the Enforcer.
Here is the final gun design with textures added.
