M1911 Colt Pistol by Bahr3DCG M1911 Colt Pistol by Bahr3DCG
A new render of my Colt M1911 pistol model. I modeled the environment to look like a farage workbench.
I am quite happy with the result of this render. In fact, I think it may be the closest to photorealism I have acheived to date.

Modeled in Maya 2013, rendered in Keyshot 3, and watermarked in Photoshop CS6.

I appreciate comments, critiques, and faves! Your feedback is how I can grow as an artist! Thanks!

Here is the previous render of this model, with different shaders and setup.

I think the only things I can say is that the pistol itself looks like it couldn't physically fire. There's no magazine-release extension on the side the pistol is shown on. The grips are alright, but could use just a little work. The detail in the actual pistol itself is very decent. The suppressor definitely looks like something that would be used by modern day special forces, very sleek and modern. The bottom two magazines beneath the pistol look like they're one magazine. I do enjoy the shine the bullets give off. I do think the nickle-plating on the pistol could use a little work because it looks a bit like it was done by a spray-can of silver pain.
But overall, the gun's awesome.
What do you think?

Can't beat a classic, am I right?

The thing that bugs me the most on the model is oddly enough the bullets. On your bullets you don't have primers like what's conventionally seen.

I suppose that you are right.  I should have put a copper shader on the indent, which is where i had intended for that to be.  It could probably use a little bit of a bump there instead of an indent as well.  Thanks for the feedback!

I like it, but, the finish on the gun itself seems too grainy which makes it appear as if it were made of cast iron, the only other complaint I have is the lack of physics, or more specifically, gravity.

Also, commas, commas everywhere.

Its actually physically accurate steel. Yes, gravity will be fixed when i get the time. and Ill throw in some fingerprints or something.

Commas?

Thats really amazing! I'm by no means a regular peruser of 3d art and it's definitely not my area of expertise but i'm really impressed by this!

If I were to try to be critical I'd struggle, I disagree with the first commenter about dirt since this could quite easily just be brand new. The only things I pick up on that tells me its not actually real are A) something about the reflection on the copper of the nearest round, not really sure what though. B) The weight distribution of the actual Colt, I feel like its barrel of the silencer should either be touching the surface, suggesting its heavier than it appears here or the stock/hammer would be out weighing it making it tip back with the grip up in the air.

Still this is the first 3D piece i've seen here thats made me stop to look, let along leave a comment! Lastly, if you hadn't mentioned it, I would have thought the background was real!

Thank you for the comment! I appreciate it! I will be fixing the weight and gravity errors when I can. I dont like the idea of dirt and grime, but I will probably add some fingerprints to the clips and grip! Again, thanks for the nice comment! :)
