Herald, the attack trumpet

It all started with me noticing a herald trumpet and suddenly wondering what it would look like if it were a riffle. So I made a trumpet rifle…

Then things started to get out of hand! But what a fun and challenging time I had. I have made a promise to myself to include simulation of object when I do new projects, so I got to shatter some glass and scatter cloned objects for a more natural chaotic position. I went all-in on the technical details and came up with great-looking shaders that sparkles in the light! 

I also got to write/visualize a little background story for such a unique weapon (and those who might have carried it). While taking inspiration from the Hellsing Organization (vampires that fight for the English queen), I wanted to do an elite unit that is somewhat religious (hence the artifacts scattered around the scene).
