Colored and shaded version of my M290 submachine gun concept
. This view shows off a few ways in which the M290 can be customized for different missions. The top version mounts an EOTech holographic sight and suppressor for covert missions; the bottom version is a vehicle crew variant with flash hider and short 15-round magazine.
The M290 is a bullpup submachine gun chambered in .45ACP with an advanced recoil compensation system mounted above the barrel (cf. this similar weapon
). Its method of operation is the tried-and-true closed bolt blowback system, used by the ubiquitous HK MP5 and UMP weapons.
Done entirely in Photoshop CS3. Used my usual modus operandi: scanned pencil sketch, vector lineart, texture, overlay shading. Aside from a few minor (if obvious) mistakes, I think it came out well.
