How to draw Realistic Guns 1 by Coonass How to draw Realistic Guns 1 by Coonass
A tutorial I made to help artists draw realistic guns.

Just remember, you could always hit the back key and read yet another tutorial on how to draw anime eyes, but if you stay here you just might learn something.

I'm eventually going to make this into a flash program, but for now you'll have to deal with the picture format.

enjoy

This is amazing! I learned a lot from this. Now what I see in action films finally makes sense especially when I see those golden things (casing) fly as the bullets fire. Thank you so much for this! I feel like this will definitely help me in drawing firearms :D

Gonna do revolvers at some point? Or are people better at those?

maybe, eventually, but revolvers are really simple machines, just get hold of one and look it over and you'll probably figure it out pretty easy

"look, its the bullet from the last section" i think you meant round right? Looks like you have no idea what you're talking about according to what you said. Xp
but seriously, very nice work.

yeah that was a bit of humor that, as it stands, looks out of place. Originally there was another hand written blurb that said "rounds are generally inserted strait down into rifle magazines", and that other arrow was actually just pointing to the projectile. However, it got too crowded so I erased the previous blurb. But looking at it now I should probably edit that shouldn't I

After this series of tutorials for gun design would you mind making some tutorials on how larger weapons work and are drawn such as flame throwers, rocket launchers or chain guns thanks.

Coonass Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2012
anything's possible eventually. My plan is to finish the series on select fire rifles, then do belt fed machine guns, bolt action rifles, and pistols. After that I'm not sure what ill do.

well it may be complicated to do but you can get a good series on the big guns ya'know.Also you may be able to do a series on certain types of projectiles. Alrighty thanks for answering.

Nice guide, but you broke your own rule with that gun that's supposed to be from 1200 years in the future.

:iconcoonass:
Coonass Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2012
that 3800 era sniper rifle is a railgun, and therefore does not need a bolt, bolt carrier, or chamber. But don't worry, I did give some thought to the internal mechanism, the weapon uses a rotating cylinder design.

I've often found myself double-backing to designs like the Gorgon Pistol in Gears of War which apparently uses ballistic ammunition despite the magazines never connecting with the incredibly awkward firing mechanism. Others like the Storm Bolter on Abaddon's power fist which has twin-barrels yet the ammunition for both is fed through one side with no discernible feed system for the other gun. Things like this always bother me. Thanks for clarifying these things!

I think you missed belt-fed. I think they're more complex than regular magazine fed weapons.
Reply
:iconcoonass:
Coonass Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2012
They aren't ready for belt fed yet, I'll get there eventually.

If you look at the table of contents you'll see that I've got quite a bit left to do on traditional rifles. Things like belt fed machine guns, sniper rifles, and other more exotic pieces will come after that.

Makin gun tutorials eh? You're gonna have a lot to explain with so many kinds of guns that exist.

I made a series of interactive flash gun tutorials too, for every kind of gun I could think of. Although I didn't cover that much in detail about the bolt or thought of the "t" of functionality. Haven't thought of it as a T, but it makes total sense.

Perhaps you might explain more that I haven't, so I could learn some more stuff myself. In the mean time, I'll be watching you.

Finally someone actually makes this issue apparent. People simply don't know how to draw guns. Even if a design does not work if traditional, nobody ever bothers to reconcile the design flaws.
Then again, wonky engineering can lead people astray.

Wonky? The TKB wasn't a failure, it could eject and was basically a PDW with an Assault rifle size barrel.
