i finished this a while ago, it took two weeks. I started to use blender at the begining of this year. I made this model just for get better and thanks to this i learned a lot folowing material and model tutorials, and i asked for advice here as well. But i want to know, what makes a gun reder stand out for the crowd?, what i can do to get better?. Thanks for the critizice!
Nice render, I like the model.
If you wnat to improve, I think you can pay more attention to the texturing.
Right now the textures are really plain without any detail. Even a brand new gun would have imperfections; some subtle relief, tiny scratches and a little dirt/dust.
You could also have a look at brush marks on the steel, using the anisotropic shader and at a texture to the green part.
Here’s an example of what a gunbarrel would look like, you can see that the textures and the glossy spots are much more interesting.
You might want to go easy on the realism though, you’ll send some soyboy or sjw into fits of hysteria and get you banned.
