How to Draw Realistic Guns, part 2 by Coonass How to Draw Realistic Guns, part 2 by Coonass
Part 1 of this tutorial can be found here: [link] these tutorials build on each other so you should probably read that one first.

Part 2 of my tutorial series on how to draw realistic firearms. In this section we continue to learn about the semi-automatic rifle. Focusing on the trigger group and operating group. I has also tried to include a section on external features (which might be just the slightest bit important to the discerning artist) but I ran out of room. So instead of condensing the section I'm going to release it as part of a exasperated mini tutorial, so look for that in the near future.

also, if you use this tutorial to improve your weapons drawings post links, I like to see how my tutorials improve people's work.

Genius! I've been looking for something to help me design weapons that could actually exist instead of looking like a tacticool bag of crap with a trigger. Fits the bill just fine, look forward to any future expansion

This is a good tutorial. Do you plan on making a tutorial for how pin-fire weapons work? (Weapons like bolt actions and the Glock series pistols.)

possible eventually, but not in the near future.
