Hum3D is holding a weapon art contest, and I've decided to stop progress on finishing up any remaining pieces to enter this contest. https://hum3d.com/3d-guns-challenge/
Originally I was going to do a M249 along with a Briefcase Gun concept I had, but felt that neither would have worked out in the end for the contest. So I photobashed together a near-future Bizon. The concept is just a base for the overall forms, and will not be a representation of the final model.
So far I have a basic blockout in progress, which I'm slowly beginning to refine. Overall I'm borrowing details from the Galil Ace for the AK portions of the gun. I am still going to include the sight as it'll add a nice touch to the first person view and break up the silhouette a bit on both the front and first person views. The idea is that this would be a near-future smg, dubbed the Bizon-IV, that would make the helical mag fed firearm more fit for customization and reliability. Features such as a detachable, folding, and collapsible stock, modular magwell allowing for different types of rounds and magazines to be fed, classic AK scope mounting system along with picatinny rails, forward charging handle, heatguard sporting both picatinny rails and MLock, etc are all features I'm putting into this gun. Another requirement for the contest is that the gun be rendered in an environment. At the moment I have a few ideas of what to make, but either way I will need to begin making one immediately if I am to make the deadline for this asset.
