In this image, you can see the Old West revolver I'm basing this first gun on, and the first couple parts of the gun. The hand in the scene came off the Creed model. I repositioned it where it is so that, when the gun is complete, I can resize it and parent it to the hand. Then, I can reposition the hand to where it was initially, moving the gun with it. When I then bounce the gun from Maya to zBrush, it will be in Creed's hand there as well. Cool, huh?
Of course, maybe I should put it in holster position. Oh well, a consideration for later.
