Topic: Energy Gun
Background: The Greystone Corp. has asked us here at CA.org to make up plans for TWO of their new line of weaponry with a working title of Energy Guns. You have two weeks to comply.
Their request came in three parts:
1) Each gun must fire a different energy. There are many types to choose from including:
- light - magnetic - elastic
-sound - kinetic - thermal
-gravitational - chemical - electrical....
...and so on.
2) In order to eliminate battle mistakes, each weapon must somehow clearly and visually state through design or imagery the energy used as ammo. However, they must both carry the Greystone Corp signature look (created by you) in some manner.
3) You must include a write up revealing the method in which you envision the weapon to work. Research into energies and how they function is appreciated.
NOTE: Although the title states gun, the weapon may be of any size, as long as it is physically movable by one person. Therefore, small cannons etc, are applicable. However, the shape must hold to the general butt end, hole end with trigger idea. If the entry misses or does not complete the brief, your entry will not be taken to poll.
Inspiration and Info:
Energy forms and definitions
1. Design and draw an Energy Gun.
2. Follow the outline given.
3. That's it... now draw!
Final entries must be posted in the final thread.
Deadline: Wednesday, August, 5
Rounds usually close around midnight GMT.

Now this is a brief you can sink your teeth into! Should be a good thread, nice one Pixie!
YES!!! I love the topic! im outta town all next week but thank God for the Two week round!
Pixie- I love how you make specific requirements (Geystone Corp signature, 2 weapons, Portable) I think it gives us limitations to stick to the brief but also go wild with ideas.

This could be quite a fun one, and two weeks too!
Freelance/general inquiries @: Natzuur@gmail.com
Done some initial biro sketches to loosen up for ideas, going to digital next!
This is my kind of contest.
I-Z, I like your sketches.
Is it Geystone or Greystone?
Brilliant! Perfect way to unwind after a massive couple of weeks work! Hope I have time to get this one done.
Cheers Cozmo, I look forward to seeing everyone elses take on this brief!
The Swan design reminds me of the Zat gun from Stargate.
Well my family is having a garage sale and my basement just flooded so it will be a while for me to post my WIP!
Looking good I-Z!
So here's a couple of ideas I'm working with. The big one is a type of man-portable Gauss gun, which uses electromagnetic coils wrapped around the barrel to propel a projectile forward. The other is a pistol that fires electrically-charged bullets.
Just that there are no misunderstandings:
1.You say TWO weapons: does that mean this contest will have two winners or that everybody has to do two different guns?
2.Does the writing part need to be a seperate text file, text you type into the finals post or is it meant to be part of the final 1000x1000px file?

Everyone has to make two weapons, each which use a different type of energy. If you are clever with your layers and lasso tool you can probably use parts of a first gun in the design of the second in order to give a continuity to the Greystone styling, as well as saving time. The two guns is the reason why I gave two weeks. There will only be one poll.
The text can be in the image, or separate (ie in your post). I don't even think it's possible to upload text files, and even if you do manage it, do not do it please. There is no limit to image size or ratios such as 1000x1000, but be sure it is viewable on an average monitor.
Karyl, I like that! The ball in the middle looks kind of like the remote drone that Luke uses in the original Star Wars.
Karyl, that's a really nice weapon!
Here's a couple of sketches, just playing with froms and silhouettes. And the two WIPs with a bit more detail. The first one is an electromagnetic submachinegun and the second one a plasma beam heavy weapon. Any comments and crits are very welcome
Thanks Cozmo & Homerid for the kind words...
WIP for gun #2- sidearm weapon that shoots a beam of elastic energy... knobs on the side control the strength of the beam (how much weight it can support) and power (to suspend, lift, or lower objects/persons)
Handle on the back gives the weapon proper weight and allows for a better grip if using weapon to scale or rappel.
Hope I don't bollocks these up when I go to digital...
Isn't putting a gun on top of Bigdog kinda cheating? :-)
