Ilium VR Athena Rifle

I was contracted to design and model a rifle peripheral for Ilium VR, a tech startup focusing on increased immersion in virtual reality gaming. After finding the team’s preferred balance between sleek sci-fi influences and modern firearm design conventions, I created a concept sheet for the silhouette of the rifle and potential future attachments. Then set out to create the hard-surface model using Maya, fleshing out the more intricate details, specific color placement, and various shape tweaks along the way with the client’s regular feedback.
