Reviews for "Artist's guide to the Gun"

Nice tutorial

I don't even care about guns in that way, but this tutorial is rather interesting to read. You put some good effort into it and for a beginning flash animator I can see this being very useful. Even an experienced flash animator that has never done guns could probly take some tips away from this. I give it a 4/5 and 7/10 because it was good, but not totally detailed.

Anyways, good job.

StealthBeast responds:

Not totally detailed? Not totally detailed how? If you told me, I could've improve it.


sure is 2002 in here

StealthBeast responds:

BS, you're 16 years old, so in 2002 you'd have been 8.

You read this level of info in a NG tutorial when you were 8? Doubt it.


honestly, no. this is not an artist's guide. if anybody would want to learn how to properly draw them, go on google images or go to some museum and look at the detail.

here all im seeing is showing the gun, but no demonstration on how to draw it. if you would do that then i would give a better review.

StealthBeast responds:


I most certainly did explain how to draw them, AND I gave a full-fledged demonstration... AND I set up a SEPERATE demonstration so that you could watch as I created the gun step by step by step, and forward or backward. What more could you possibly want?

This is art, not rocket science. My explanation gave the bare-essential tools an entry-level artist needs to start creating these guns without making some of the most common, frusterating errors newbie artists make. It's a head start; a first step; a cornerstone... There's no magic words that I can spew to make you instantly understand everything about guns and how to make them. It's impossible. That's not how tutorials work.

Once you watch this animation, tinker around a bit. Your skill isn't supposed to just stop until the next great tutorial comes out and teaches you something new... Going onto Google images and looking at the detail is EXACTLY what you're supposed to do. There's no tutorial in the world that can possibly replace that, but BEFORE you go out and do that, it helps to have a simple base; a foundation with which to build off of... THAT'S what this animation was designed to do, and judging by everyone else's review, it executed that flawlessly.

lolfan88, I can't help you any more than you are willing to help yourself.
