Grayson's Guns (Advanced 3d modeling final)

Hi! I made these three guns as my final for my Advanced 3d Modeling course. I was struggling to decide what to do for my final, until I remembered how I enjoyed working on blasters for our Jets a Blazin' project for AR/VR, so I decided I'd just model some more guns. I've included multiple renders of them in Blender because they're pretty, however they're designed for use in Blender. I've also included some animations I did in blender, along with clips of them collapsing with rigidbodies, which brings me more joy than it should. I plan to come back and add particle effects and sounds to them at a later date.
I have more to say about this project, however it'd probably make more sense to talk about each of the guns individually.

Onyx Blaster:
This is a recreation of a gun from Terraria, my favorite game. With Terraria being a 2d pixel art game, it gave me room to take plenty of creative liberties with this. It turned out really well! I do like the emissive light in Unity, however I will admit that the lighting system in Blender really highlights it. I tried to stay pretty accurate to the outline, and I also made a point to keep lots of the rough edges that it looks like the sprite has. The sprite seems to have it fed with a magazine, however I thought it would be more interesting to have it be break-action. I'm really happy with it.

Supreme Sniper
This one is blatantly just the sniper that Supreme uses in Sonic Frontiers. I decided to model it while listening to the Frontiers soundtrack and trying to figure out one more model to make (because I really need to pass this class) and remembering how cool it is. With the exception of the scope, which I modified some to make it a little more original/easier to aim with, I made an effort to make it as accurate as I could. I'm really happy with it! I realize I flipped the barrel shape upside down but hey, minor details it still looks sick. It's also really fun watching all the individual spikes on the barrel fall off on the version I added rigidbody too. I'm glad I decided to fit this one in.

F.R.I.D.G.E.
This one is original, the name is an Acronym: Frigid Rapid Incredibly Delicious Gun. (the E is silent).
Jokes aside, this one is probably my favorite. I tried to tell a story with it, and give it a real homemade craft feel, like someone made a run to the store to get a bunch of stuff and made a blaster out of their fridge with it. Obviously the bulk of it is a refrigerator, but the trigger for it is meant to resemble it's handle, repurposed. It has a piece of wood attached to it for stability and to brace it, it has a needle on the back that you can stab milk cartons into to load it, it has tubes on the side that resemble ice cream flavors that spin rapidly like they're making the ice cream from the milk, it has PVC pipes that are cut into pieces to act as the barrels, and one of my favorite details is that the lid pops open while it's being reloaded, like it needs to air out. I really want to come back to this one later and add frost particles for when the lid opens, and Neapolitan colored projectiles for it to shoot. I really love this one. I'm not enthused on how the material I made for it makes the bulk of it look much darker than it should in Blender, but hey, it's made for Unity, it looks great in Unity, you take what you can get.

I'm really happy with this project! I'm also really tired. I stayed up all night finishing this up, I'm going to go sleep now. Goodnight.
