Shooting and blasting - making a revolver in inkscape

Creating a revolver in inkscape to show you how I created the assets for the guns construction kit as part of the 1 million views at 2d art for programmers give away.

After the hacking and slaying it's time to move forward in time and get to the shooting and blasting - guns and rifles and those things in between. 
 

Note:

This is part of the 1 million views at 2dgameartforprogrammers give away. The files attached to this blog post are free and contain the guns and rifles in inkscape's .svg format and as an exploded version to use as gun construction kit.



This is what we are after - simplified handguns and rifles to use in your game. 


Note:

In order to be easily readable I created these with outlines. You can take those off but will have to add additional shading to make up for the loss of detail. 

I took the revolver as a sample to show you how these assets were created. 



Even though I am not big on guns (and please forgive me if I named bits wrongly in the tutorial - as to me they are just 'bits of a gun'), I had a lot of fun creating these. I hope you enjoy the assets as well.
