Chimera Weapon Concepts by AOPaul Chimera Weapon Concepts by AOPaul
Here are some concepts for weapons of the Chimera from Resistance. I worked for Insomniac Games, but these were not used.

I do see the game so often I felt like doodling with outlines and coming up with a few of my own. Which is your fave?

I really like the "skeletal feel" or "dynamic anatomy" feel the guns have a group.

Lovely intricate designs, but what do they do? I guess I like the one in the lower right cause it looks like it can stab people.

The weapon on the lower right is actually the first (Maybe second?) concept art for the Atomizer in Resistance 3.

Yeah, I like the complete version better, but the concept looks WAY more badass than in R3.

I onestly think that the chimera don't have enough weapons in their military. I think that they should have been given more equipment.

Yeah. I think that they should of had their own flamthrowers, shotguns, LMG's, and an electrical gun of some kind. However that's just me.

They all look freakin' cool but I think the bottom left one is more easy to handle than the others so I will go with this one! But all of them looks very very cool!

My favorites would have to be the bottom left or the middle right. all these weapons look like the same tech from district 9.

I was a tester at Insomniac Games on Resistance 2, so I was constantly seeing Chimeran designs. One of the guns was actually from a shadow I saw in game, others were just plain doodling. ;)

Heh, yah, I wish. but competition is hard core out there and there are too few jobs for concept artists compared to the many 3D modeling jobs. I'm giving myself a year to see what happens and if not I'm moving on to another dream.

yea that is true you pretty much have to be a jack of all trades to be a concept artist dont give up though something will come up u could probably even get into an independent publisher throw some of your work that direction im sure you would get some hits i heard that bungie was looking for concept artists i have the lead recruiters phone & email her name is Kari erickson she is super nice Her email: V-keric@bungie.com i dont know her personally or anything but you could giver her a shot just send her some of your stuff im sure she could get you something or atleast your foot in the door

I like them all, except the one with the tanks on it. That would make me nervous, if those were to get hit by projectiles, BOOM! :)
nice work!

A a hard choice, they all look good. I would say the 3rd down on the left is my favorite. The liquid core wold be fairly unique to see sloshing around in-game.
