It's good, however you don't make dynamic light and the back of eagle it's much thin that a real one.

I think it is great. Not much to criticize, just small personal taste changes.
- Changing the pattern above the handle to be a bit more visible
- Changing the barrel to be more round

But it's great as it is imo.

Okay, so I followed your advice and revised my work carefully. I made the back of the gun thinner, reworked some lighting effects and even put a light source, so you can have a better idea of what is going on here. As the result, it ended up looking simplified, I guess. All in all, I prefer my early version a little bit more, because it looks more shiny and detailed. Still, thank you very much for the criticism! Looking forward to reading more responses.

You work well in the frame where show Eagle back, you could large a little more from the top.

No matter which angle your gun is pointing, its surfaces are the same colour.

Have a look at this badly animated coin.



As it rotates, the face changes shade, becoming brighter as it gets closer to facing the light source.

Have a look at this badly drawn cube.



You can see the face furthest from the light source is darkest, but if you rotated it around a vertical axis it would get brighter. Try doing this to your gun. It should make it look more three dimensional and hopefully more like metal.

(But other than that it's a fine-looking gun!)

Applied some significant changes to the picture thanks to your comments. So, what do you think?

Good, it looks more metal now. :)

The textured area above the handle looks like it needs to change shade with the rest of the gun as well. But I'm enjoying your progress.
