Orchestral Crossbow

A few years ago, when I was first starting out, I modeled a violin. Lately, I've thought it would be a great idea to revamp the violin into a weapon. I chopped off the majority of the model, and made a crossbow put together from junk you'd find at a mall. A music store, hardware store, and furniture store are all you need to create this not-for-long-term-use weapon!

All the textures were made by myself inside Substance Designer.

The attached clothes pin, when pushed, raises a metal piece, which in turn lifts the bungee cord over some pegs, releasing the bolt.

The limbs of the crossbow are from a plexiglas stick.

The tuning peg and some nails keep the bolt in place and going straight.
