Having done these fifteen silhouettes, I decided to dissect the design and list the pros and cons of each design
Minimalistic design, looks generic though
Details and form, however it stems from my go to Sci-Fi aesthetic, not reaching too far.
Aesthetic and concept, maybe looks too ad-hoc
Shape and form is interesting, looks like an angry Duck
Size and scale are interesting, looks cluttered and ad-hoc
Circular main body is interesting but leads to dissonant shapes in the form
length and details, could be a little generic
Concept and overall design is interesting, but maybe needs more work.
interesting aesthetic choice, but not very noticeable
notion of including a backpack is novel, but still looks too ad-hoc
simple blocky shapes, but silhouette is a little bland
sound idea and design, but not very interesting silhouette
size and layout, but purpose is hard to notice
interesting idea, maybe too simplistic
split body, maybe too stocky.
From these. I’m going to draft an idea that I will follow for my continued work on this brief.
The design I use should incorporate simple and distinct shapes to reate a weapon of suitable size and scale that treats the concept and overall chosen aesthetic well, care should be taken to ensure that the silhouette of the final design is interesting visually whilst making the weapons purpose and use clear. Finally it should look purpose built and not too cluttered and ad-hoc.
