I LOVE making weapon concepts. I was watching someone draw an axe, and I noticed that at the beginning it looked alot like a game controller.
So I fired up Pureref and started having a look at some axes and game controllers.
I then went into blender, and modelled this!
the texture is all procedural meant to give a hand-painted sort of look.
It’s all fully baked on
this was the material I used for all the textures if anyone would like to test it out. It works best with sculpts.
Here are the geometry details (I wish i was in ugc then I could upload this as a back accesory or smth)
and heres a snapshot of the topology
