Compact Sniper Rifle by MeckanicalMind Compact Sniper Rifle by MeckanicalMind
Here's a concept for a modified bullpup auto sniper rifle. Though thats a mouthful, it explains the different style design. I imagine that most of the gun is housed in a plastic case with a polished metal skin. Purely for aesthetics.

*Not from an actual game


CS3 + Tablet drawing

Uh the barrel is too short, it's more like a bullpup style assault rifle.

Looks more like an assault rifle to me but I suppose one could use it as a DMR. Though methinks the reason why it looks more like an assault rifle to me is because it reminds me of the F2000 and the Tar-21.

Hi.

Love all the artwork of yours I've seen on here.

Do you mind if I model this?

I plan to make it to game rez specs. I'll credit you and everything of course.

I sent you a note, but I figure alot of people don't read em and I was better off asking here.

This is most definitely an assault rifle, battle rifle, or carbine.

Interesting. looks more like it fits in the assault rifle or battle rifle category.
Changing scope might make it fit the category better
and the ironsight might be slightly redundant, considering that the designation 'sniper rifle' would normally always rely on high powered scope.

Also small functional problem
You either need to move the magazine slightly more forward, or make more room behind the magazine. otherwise, the bolt carrier doesn't have any room to cycle the round

other than that, beautifully rendered

considering that this is a future setting, much of my points may be moot, but I stand by on the point of bolt carrier.

First, Sniper rifles aren't and will never be "compact." They need to be long to shoot accurately. Barrel length is almost directly proportional to precision.
Second, you probably wouldn't do anything for "aesthetics" on a gun like this. A casing like that would make maintenance difficult and air-cooling slow. Though if it was an assault rifle you might have such a casing for clubbing people to death.

Awesome design, yo.

Since we're being technical, the fact that it's a bullpup design makes it compact by default...

haha, well I'm glad I work in video games. I'll plead the Halo in my defense (TSK handgun and Scoped Battle-rifle). Fortunately in video games people are less likely to question the accurate functionally and physics of something as long as it looks cool and is fun to shoot. Until I learn better,I will stay away from any gun manufacturers. Also you should check out the alien weaponry we have in Resistance 3!
