To me, the 1911 in all its variations has always been the most iconic handgun when it comes to movies, comics and games. But only during this project I really came to appreciate its classic design ( Research is part of the fun, yea? :) ). A desing so brilliant that it still holds its ground pretty much unchanged, over 100 years after its creation. That excact feel I wanted to capture in this image: Old and worn, yet fully functional and reliable. I chose the WW2-style 1911A1 for this piece, because I think it captures the feel perfectly.Created in blender 2.7 and rendered with cycles, photoshop for textures and post processing. Post-pro. included color correction, cinema-bars and texts.
