Colt 1911 Model

I’m trying to get back into 3D modelling again, I totally suck at it so it can be hard to muster the motivation sometimes. Anywayz I started working on a gun recently, the model is about 90% complete, here is the first render, some fixes and fine tuning still needed, you can easily spot some of the mistakes (dodgy colour shading etc).

  1. Lovely job.I just hope you don’t get a horde of saddo gun anoraks pointing out “errors” and completely missing the point of the exercise.I particulary like the wooden grips.

  2. Thanks Daithí.
    I don’t mind a bit of criticism anyway. I’ve posted it on a modelling forum and gotten some feedback there on the errors, most of which are related to the modelling. The area behing the trigger is a bit screwed up and i’m having trouble sorting it out. Frustrating!

  3. Looking nice maca. What are you using to model? Is it Max?

  4. I wish it was Max, Claire. I use a tiny wee free program called Anim8or, it’s handy for beginners like me, much easier than Blender and cheaper than any of the high end programs like Maya, Max etc :)

  5. Good job, Maca.
    I wish I were that good at using graphic applications!

  6. Thanks Antonio. I wouldn’t call myself good though, you should check out some of these: Blender gallery

  7. Make ya jealous, wouldn’t it? :-[

  8. Quite jealous, yeah :-)
    But I’d be glad if one of these days I could see one of your works in those galleries.
    I’m sure I won’t wait too long ;-)

  9. Thanks Antonio, but it won’t happen :) As well as a lack of talent i’m also too lazy to put serious effort into it, I only do it when I’m bored or when there’s nothing on TV :)
