 For this project I really wanted to make a shoulder mounted launcher of somekind. I knew I wanted it to be a sci-fi piece as well. Here are a few of the designs I came up with.

I chose one that I liked and did some refinements and made many different variations.

I started modeling one of the designs I liked but I wasn't a fan with how it was feeling so I ended up starting over with a different design.

I started blocking my new idea. My though process behind this, I thought it would be awesome to have a jet turbine sitting on your shoulder that shot solid ion beams, capable of breaking through the shields of enemy ships, and all from the comfort of your shoulder.

I started detailing the business end of the cannon and also adding details to the ammo cylinders

While working on the grips I took a lot of inspiration from flight sticks.

Here I added some new features, since this is a big gun it needed a few safety features, because no one like accidental discharges. I added a trigger saftey and a grip safety. I also added an Omega switch and directional thumbsticks. This is a big gun and aiming at a moving ship can be hard. A feature I want to add on the gun will be an auto aim assist. A beam of energy only goes straight so the cannon will have an RCS system or a reaction control system. There will be tiny thrusters on the end of the cannon to orient and track the ship while firing. The thumbsticks would be there for a manual adjustments.

I am having a lot of fun creating this piece and I figure I will put this in the unreal engine later on. So I decided to add some exaust vents that would pop up when firing. After the contest I will animate it and effects for firing .
