Asset Production Progress 1

After completion of our Pirate Treasure Chest project, our next undertaking is an introduction to asset production. Specifically our brief requires the design and production of a game asset, the object may be one from the list provided or we may seek approval for something else we wish to create. I have chosen to design a Sci-fi pistol.

During this first week i have gathered sources of inspiration and have started to think about the design of my object. i have looked at both real- life gun models as well as fictional designs as inspiration.

I’m currently leaning towards a comic stylised aesthetic for my Sci-fi pistol and have been influenced by weapon design from such Video Games as Destiny (Bungie, 2016) and Borderlands (2K Games, 2016).

I am keeping mind at this early stage in the Asset production my limitations in producing an asset production. With this in mind I will attempt to create something as close to the in game weapons I admire.
