Okay so I'll let you decide, I may have gone a bit overboard. LOL I kinda like it though, it has the look I was after. With all the great techniques everyone shared I kinda applied most of them to the Blaster. Two different metallic rattle-cans by Testors-Graphine Dust and Diamond Dust, rubbed it down with some steel wool, black washed it, lit a cork and rubbed it all over (probably my favorite new technique learned, thanks Ajax!), rubbed some ground up charcoal all over it, and sprayed the barrel edge with some black flat paint.

Thanks again to all of you who helped me out with techniques, I really appreciate it.

Rotfl, Kel you always crack me up.  :D

You would go darker with the whole thing? When I look at it in real life it's darker than the pic, more a gunmetal. I took it outside to get the light reflecting off it so you could see the metallic sheen it has to it. But the pic does wash it out a bit. I can post an adjusted pic as well if it'll help.

Yep that looks pretty metal to me :D

It does look a little plain though, all being the one colour. Are you planning on giving it some more? For example, I'd do a darker grip section.

^this. I LOVE the work you've done with it, and it's fine as is, but I think it would look better if it lookd like less one piece of metal and rather an assembly of parts, like many guns actually are. Different colored grip, slightly darker muzzle, some stuff lika that. but melikes how you have it now!

Oh yeah, it's not done. I was just getting feedback on the metal paint job. I plan on making a leather grip for the handle, I just haven't found all the leather's I'll be using yet. The barrel is actually slightly darker than the main body it just didn't show well in the pic, but I'm afraid to make it any darker, cause that would just be all black. There is a bit of red in the reference pic about where the exaggerated "h" groove is, I was thinking of doing some Mando'a text there maybe Ripper? Any suggestions.

Thanks everybody for the feedback on the Ripper so far. Moving on to the next business at hand, my axe should be completely painted in the next day or so and I wanted to start working on my backpack.

While looking at the Star Wars - Tales of the Jedi - The Sith War Comic I saw this guys backpack and liked it better than the round lifesaver looking ones.



Where I have the red arrows, I think this might be part of his shoulder and neck armor but, I'm not really sure.



So my question is, would it be fine to include those parts for my backpack design?

I was about to say, if you can pull it off that will be awesome, but I already know you can. That WILL be awesome.

Yeah Mando'a text in red on the ripper will look cool, along with the leather wrappings.

Seugtai, any chance I could see a pic of how the Ripper looks in your hand? :)

To answer your question about the back pack, yes you can. It is your backpack and your design, besides, I think it looks good with the way you have drawn it up. That will make a cool backpack system and can't wait to see it!

Keep up the great work.

Ok after looking at the pic a couple of times now, I belive your right on the money with the backpack design.

Have a good one,
Hagen
