Thunderclapper pistol by IgnusDei Thunderclapper pistol by IgnusDei
Prepare for the inevitable invasion of communist robot soldiers with the very first energy weapon available to the civilian sector, brought to you by Zeus Heavy Industries! With the clever use of lasers creating an electrical conduit, the ThunderClapper 2100 can deliver up to 10 kilowatts of electricity on target! Amazing!

-Get more bang for your buck! Incredibly efficient, the ThunderClapper can get 30 shots out of a single Microfusion Power Cell! Astounding!
-Freeze, dirtbag!...literally! Officer, you don't have to worry about those use of lethal force lawsuits! With the stun setting, you can shoot those filthy criminals as many times as you want and they'll never die.! Stupendous!
-Looks NOTHING like a hairdryer! Neato!

I think most people would surrender if they were on the business end of this hand cannon.

CosmOSmocker Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2012  Student General Artist i need it on fallout3/NV.....would devinitively be a lovely gun. have you played New Vegas? there's a gun called "beaton teasla prototype" fact the BFG version of this i think.

love me a little bit of the beaton teasla prototype , looks great along with my remnants armor

would be cool to have this in new vegas, the handle on this reminds me a bit of 'that gun' , which was a great little purchase i think, 5.56 in a pistol , great fun!

I'm sorry, every time I hear the thunder clap. I think of this.

Wicked design. Reminds me a bit of Rick Deckard's gun from Blade Runner, or Rudolpho's gun from the (admittedly, much less well-known) show STarhunter (which I've modeled here.)

Fantastic! Stupendous! But I'm looking for something more along the lines of a headmelter. Do you have any such weapons in stock?

It's uh... For... Shooting practice. On heads.

Good god, that Nerf pistol sure has made the rounds! If Nerf only knew how weirdly popular their design would be with artists and modelers.

I'm not saying you "copied", I'm just saying this looks startlingly like the Nerf pistol everyone loves to draw/mod. You can't NOT run into it, if you type the words "steam punk gun" into the dA search bar! It's like the design concept has become an internet meme.

IgnusDei Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
aw dang, it DOES look like the nerf gun!
SlowHand-Solo Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2010
I'm sorry... I thought that was on purpose. It's still a great gun design, and you put your own spin on it. I love it, truly. Everyone loves that Nerf pistol. It's kind of like how the Super Soaker gave birth to the BFG designs. I swear I had a Super Soaker that was half my size, and weighed like forty-five pounds when full of water when I was a kid, that looked like an orange and yellow version of the BFG9000. I loved that thing.

Anyway... It's nothing to get riled up over. The human brain likes certain shapes and lines. This is obviously one of them, and it looks awesome. ^_^

Dub'L Llama'd!

TranquilRuins Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Nice gun! Heres hoping its super light weight :) I actually thought you might have been doing this for Valves new online store for Team Fortress 2 ;) I would be doing it myself but I can't for the life of me get Blender working on a Windows 7 system :S ahem...

Anyway good work! :)

Instantly recognizable as a Fallout weapon; looks great. It also reminds me of a suped up version of Deckards gun from Blade Runner (which funnily enough is in a few of the games).
timkaiserOnline Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
This would be fun. Top heavy, but fun. Nothing like a hairdryer, haha.

As soon as I saw "Microfusion Power Cell", I immediately thought "This is for Fallout, isn't it?"

Sweet! The wooden handle's a nice touch!
Sly-T Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2010
I'd use it to shot myself

Gauss Pistol?
Auger-Affect Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Absolutely love where these gun design sheets are drifting toward. Great dieselpunk attitude to this one! I think I'd buy this kind of stuff in an artbook/calendar, where it was just a bunch of fully made up advertisements for crazy retrotech-styled sci-fi guns.
HunterRodrigez Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
holy shit what caliber is that
pansejra Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
Is this... Fallout related? :) I really do like this one. You've got to be playing Fallout New Vegas in these days, right?
TheMagicLemur Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Proof of how dead-on the feel of this is: Before I saw the description or any comments, I immediately thought "wow, that would be -perfect- in a Fallout game." Well done.
flaketom Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2010
hell, yes! :D
MrAkton Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Not bad at all, would make me consider using energi weapons, but a few this i notised..
if it where sepose to be a comersial it should maybe not be rusty or look like it had been in use befor
IgnusDei Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
It's Fallout. Everything is used in that world. :p
MrAkton Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
ofcourse, but isnt it sepose to look a bit pre-war like? like the commersials they dont run around with raiders drinking nuka cola either
IgnusDei Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
it's fallout. Everything is used, even in the commercials :P
eMDay Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, this one is neat! I would've done the text another way if you would forgive the noob critique (not the text on the gun though!)

Also, are that bullets in the back of the handle? I feel this thing would be pretty business-end-heavy too... But there's a workaround for that! Just make it STRENGTH: 8 or something.

Again, awesome weapon.
clipNET Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2010
Great work, I think I want one, check out my gun in my gallery "PearlJam: The gun that ghosts busters, so who you gonna call"
vidgamer123 Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2010

IgnusDei Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
as soon as a fallout new vegas modder decides he likes it enough to model it :/
Furr Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2010
I knew it was for Fallout. XD
I luv it. Also, WANT ONE.
