more demonstrations for the explosions, this time the squished doom blast, and the sparky explosion (it looks really good)

well, managed to get aseprite 0.9.5. and kinda "importing" the right palette (hopefully) and now it shaould be all right,
Took another stab at getting the Blackmarch SMG to look right. There's actually nothing wrong with the MP-5k I created. So I just stuck the laser sight, suppressor can, and stock onto it. I think the only thing that'd make it look more like an MP-5 is retracting the stock but then that doesn't make it look like it should be a 1x3 item when it is.

I think another thing that makes the whole system look like a honey badger is simply the clip. Little details count and the Blackmarch has always had a straighter thicker magazine, like an 8mm kurz or something like that. Just might be that it isnt 9mm considering it does 30 damage.

edit:
And here's a retracted version.
It looks ready for wet work.

Your explosions are awesome, but can't you post them as sheets? Piecing them together is a lot of work, especially positioning each correctly.

Blast From The Past

rott explosions were a nice surprise!

Please mind to work on that shape too? (click) At least any chance to use it for even a new draw. Here it is with a bit of update..

Blackmarch SMG is indeed nothing like MP-5, except the visual style being similar, it's chambered for something more like 10 AUTO rounds.

MP5/10 exists (or, well, existed), so that is not a sufficient distinction.

Can't you read Juku? I explain why it looks different than MP-5.

I can only read what you actually write. You said it looks similar, but has a different round. This is exactly like the MP5/10.

My point was there is no reason to lament it doesn't look exactly like MP5 (either variant), eg. regarding barrel placement, or insist that it should because it is not supposed to.

Fair enough. I was looking for a more mechanical explanation, but this is a visual design thread, after all.

Mechanical explanation: MP-5 production lines have stopped over 600 years earlier and have never been reactivated. All what remains of them is radom particles of rust in the ground.

No, not the mechanical difference of how the Blackmarch SMG came to be different from the MP-5. The mechanical difference between the two guns. I imagine it doesn't use the roller-delayed blowback, since that is fairly uncommon outside G3-related firearms. Don't know about modularity nor closed-bolt action in the BM SMG.

I don't bother myself with such details, I only monitor if performance is consistent with vague 'tech level' vs. weapon size/weight. As for mechanical details, you can imagine whatever you want; it's more or less within the bounds of currently existing technology, not future/alien, so it's uninteresting.
