Here's the first, of several, Theos shettiers I doodled up, early in the week at the laundromat. I should clarify I doodled them as small pencil thumbs at the laundry and decided to do some cleaned up digital ink and color later. There were eight of the weapons on the sheet so rather than post them all as a batch I decided to split them up.
This one's a Geind revolver electro cap ignition style, similar to this sendai custom beast: [link]
Although this model has a hammer style design it still uses the same principle of using flechette (Shett dart or SABOT) shells that have a special resin that the weapon sends a charged jolt into which fires the round. The handle on this one is a material that simulate catalin but is a lot more durable and isn't prone to cracking. Geind's naming conventions for their shettier designs are by model number only. They're well known for revolver designs.
Forgot to note that I started riffing off old west 1800s revolvers, not modern weapons, when I began this batch of thumbs. I more or less deconstructed aspects of those old guns I found interesting and put them in the TKP blender.
Pencil thumb converted to digital inks and colors in Photoshop CS3. Catalin texture was also handmade in CS3 by me.
More to come...
