I like this piece very much. Unfortunatly there is one fact that spoils it for me completely. As a former soldier allow me to tell you one thing: You never, NEVER!, put your gun muzzle into the ground. It is one of the most basic things that is drilled into every person handling guns. You do not want dirt or mud in there!
Nice work I'm working on a dragon with Maya. I never thought you could do that sort of thing with 3DS max XD LoL I just learned the basics of Max. I'm learning Maya now. It's alot of fun. You should try it out ^^ though I warn you. It's a bit different then Max.
It's hard to register the different controls and processes you have to go through to learn Maya. But after a few classes I was able to adjust just fine. And my dragon is on it's way. Slowly though >.> For it takes awhile as you well know.
