I'll get in on this. I want to make a.. victorian/gothic kind of.. hammer? but basically it uses a piston to either hammer out armor or pierce the armor and put an air bubble in the flesh, which is the most terrible thing I can think of at the moment.

Just working out the base and the main mechanics of this. Not sure if I will need to sculpt much but possibly the outer plates? I might try a threaded grip as well.

Might be kind of cool if you really emphasize how much air pressure is in there. Maybe put braces or reinforcements of some kind around the part that is holding the air. Make it look like it would explode if it weren't for the reinforcement.

Looking good, man. I wouldn't sculpt because depending on how much you know or don't know modeling everything by hand could teach you some stuff like problem solving, minimizing pinching, etc. I guess it is up to you though. Either way this should look badass :).

didnt smooth up for the renders but I dont want to redo them atm :P
Grindin... just playing around with construction. Using a better render setup using mental ray that a friend gave me. Since my wips are so unattractive :) The motor is in place and will be copper wires with cable leading into it from the bottom.
jocose - Thanks I really like that idea, I'll try and get some fort of pressure chamber look to it.
Havok - always stuff to learn, agreed. I don't think Ill be sculpting much if at all.

Looking good dude. For a little bit more of visual interest, maybe on the grip part you could do something like this:
Maybe have each section bulge out to vary the silhouette. You should really only do this if you will have enough extra tris on your low. It's up to you. Keep it up!

after about 6 hours of work maya decided to corrupt my file. My fault for not making multiple saves...
My workshop lesson: Make multiple saves.
I'm going to take a short break and lick my wounds.

back in the saddle for this. after losing most of my work I decided to redesign a bit to make life easier, more symmetrical design with a rose pattern to fill in holes to help with the low poly wrap.
The bottom is still as it is from the previous screenshot and will only change slightly in the grip as havok suggested
Oh shit dude that is bad ass! I cant wait to see you model this thing.

Oh wow, even better than before. Maybe your file getting corrupted was a good thing? What am I talking about!? That's never a good thing, but I definitely like this design a lot more.
