Sniper Rifle of Tomorrow by ProlificPen Sniper Rifle of Tomorrow by ProlificPen
Chose to revisit an earlier design from about a year ago ->

When designing weapons, one must force themselves to have a lot of respect for the object itself. A device that has the power to take many lives should be designed with the same amount of care and scrutiny as any work of art, be it a figure drawing, a still life, or a landscape. Someone who knew this very well was Leonardo Da Vinci. If you look at a lot of his sketches, his machines of war were rendered with the same amount of care as any subject he drew.

The science fiction of today can be the science fact of tomorrow.

it looks awesome. I like how the magazine fits in. The neon lights would be bothersome though. It looks like something out of mass effect
