This video was pretty fun to make. Here I show some cool stuff; working on an M4A1 assault rifle! I hope you enjoy looking at some of the work I did on this one. I was mostly doodling around and decided to make a modern M4 with a RIS hand guard which can be used for attaching optics, grips, launchers, and lot's of other fun things! (Yeah I'm a big Call of Duty fan; playing mostly Black Ops right now).
In this video I show some modeling of the weapon, as well as some texturing (3dsMax has FANTASTIC 3d texturing tools). Again, using photographic reference and hand painted textures. Toward the end I show some animation and rigging I did on this asset. It then gets imported into the Unity engine and looks great with some pro lighting and cool shaders. I show the weapon working in-game in another video.
