I know how to draw swords and other blade & blunt weapons but I don't know how to draw guns

I have a similar issue with my story. A space sci-fi setting has huge demand on laser guns and stuff... I'm usually basing my designs on what I think looked cool in weapons I've already seen in games and movies (while "basing" is a keyword - ripoffs are baaad).

Well, a good start point is "upgrad" a common weapon into a futuristic one. For example you can plug a battery into an Ak-47 to feed a laser device attached on it.

Laser is pretty simple, a tube conected into an reactor of chain energy. Most of the laser are enhanced wiht crystals (Remember: you have to believe on your guns, don't pretend, believe).

And there is nothing wrong in look for a reference.

Drawing guns...well, frankly said, start with a reference! Remember, that gun can be broken down into shapes; cylinders, squares, rectangles...Take the time to break down the shapes and go from there.

In what your story is based? Depending on the enviroment it may become easier to have ideas;

My story is a game...I'm making a game and I want to draw different weapons for use

A game? Hmmm... Well, think about the gameplay, what kind of weapon you would like to wield? A glove is a good idea. Like the TMD from "Singularity" game:


Look for images on the web, they help a lot. =]
