Hey /3/. I'm currently a senior applying for colleges to do Game Art and Animation and I plan on sending in a portfolio of my work, but my main concern is whether it would be considered inappropriate or wrong of me to send in 3D models of weapons which, sadly, is all I have. I don't really have any diversity to what I make currently and I was planning on doing more diverse stuff in college. Pic related is one of my better works of art.
I'd assume it's somewhat ok to send in such models because they'll know I'm applying for a major in basically videogames, but it just doesn't feel right simply because of the usual view on guns.
How about you make more models, other than guns instead of posting to 4chan? Solved.
You should ask if the college would like to see your portfolio before sending it to them. I've heard of people getting rejected because they sent in information that the college didn't a.sk for and got their application removed.
If they do want to see your portfolio then show them what you got.
I went to college in the 1980s. My portfolio was literally untextured scenes made out of very basic primitives. Making a sphere morph into a cube and then a pyramid was a class project. It would take weeks just to render a short scene. Even our 2D computer animation was pretty sad.
OP here. Got in touch with the colleges and they said it's fine to send in weapon models. I also did some other models that revolve around human anatomy and clothing.
Got accepted into my first choice.
I would definately work on some other areas in an application for a school but some gun stuff isnt bad to show. I mean be honest what game has no weapons certainly not one anyone plays.
How did you expect those guns to look proper with such shit lighting and fucktard reflective floor?
Models are alright I suppose but please don't display your models like this. Can hardly see what's going on.
Hey man, I'm in the need of another weapon artist, modeler, I'm developing something. Would you be interested? Reach me on Reddit, I /u/gzintu, or if you hate Reddit add me on steam, /id/Gadiel.

Its honestly looking fine OP, try and explore the rest of the modelling pipeline, try doing some organic modelling, curve modelling even.
The more skills you can demonstrate, the better chance you have
Now i dont know what your course is looking for, but my course (Visual Effects) like to see life drawing and general knowledge and skills within traditional art.
Try looking into colour theory, composition, perceptive drawings etc. Anything to give you an artist edge.
If you have better 2d art skills than most people, you will without a doubt become a better 3d artist
Have you modeled any sci-fi designs?
>pic related as an example
It's soft sci-fi, you autistic fuck.
>muhh laser weapons
No cyber punk look to the gun. Just looks like an oversized revolver. Looks like something hellboy would use circa 2008.
shiggidy diggidy kill yourself
Not to mention you are ignoring things like the shape of the cylinder. I bet you don't know anything about cyberpunk.
>Go look at a tree. That wood grain ain't right. Wood grain doesn't cross like that.
I tried to put scratches and missing patches to give it a Fallout look since I plan on releasing this as a mod for Fallout 4. However I can see why it doesn't look right. I'll probably just hide the layer with scratches.
No point making a new thread. Whats your opinion of making a model from a concept (where someone has already done so).
I started last month and was really hyped, then found a pretty good sculpt already done. should i abandon?
are you selling the model?
if not, then why the fuck would you abandon it
not every single model has to be a special unique snowflake, people model shit from the real world/concept art/games/movies/etc just for practice and cause it's fun
>I started last month and was really hyped, then found a pretty good sculpt already done. should i abandon?
I can see why you may think that since doing so would be like reinventing the wheel, but imo that's ok. Better to do it yourself than use someone elses so just stick with it.
I'm a Game Design major at Champlain. This campus is ridiculously nice and the area is the best. If you come you get a card that lets you into a hyper modern building called the CCM where theres 2 really great labs to work in. Might see you in there sometime?
First what jind of "company that specializes in weaponry" do you mean? weapon industry? The "we specialized in weaponry"-3d-company that sells 3d models of guns? Second, why would they explicitly need OP?
