Hi all my name is David , i am 19 (20 in Feb) and have just finished a degree course for Multimedia at my local college.
I am starting a 2 year Games Design course at Uni soon , and i do have experiance in 3d modeling , and importing into various game engines like Halo , and working with programs like 3ds , Lightwave and Maya.
I have recently got out of a 2 year artist block and i am really happy about it , but i was wondering if anyone here could help me in getting alot better by posting helpfull advice on my work.
Just as a note , i am planning on importing these models into Halo so some renders will have the Masterchief (Halos main character) in , mainly because i try to scale stuff to suit him for importing purpose`s.
Anyways , enough of the chit chat from me .... heres my latest work (2 days old)
Sub Machine Gun Concept
Mag Sniper Concept
[IMG]Tri Shot Concept[/IMG]
The idea behind these guns is that i am trying to make a fresh start from what i am used to doing , and i am trying to create a game that use`s Halos engine to run it. The whole theme behind them is that they are not normal weapons , they are designed to have a realistic purpose and work realistically , like the Sniper Rifle , it use`s Negatively charged magnets positioned near the barrel to act kinda like a "Rail gun" which forces the Positively charged bullet out at a higher speed , causing more damage.
Also take note , that none of the models have smoothing , and are all below 3000 polys , i try to keep my poly count low to optimize for better frame rate ingame.

^ The above link leads to my youtube account , where i have posted videos of myself and a team of people i have found on the net over 4 years making a modification for Halo , which emulates Sonic The Hedgehog on a 3d FPS engine , but it works more a less the same style as the classic Sonic games..
I have 2 white boards i use to draw on , and i am gonna start more drawing soon as its the summer holidays and i plan to get out more , and i have also ordered a Wacom tablet so i am gonna be doing some enviromental work aswell.
