Gun Barrel

I have been trying to create a realistic internal view of a rifle's barrel. needless to say being only an amatuer it is not coming along that well. this is what I have so far

I think it looks pretty good. Being a shooter for years, I would tell you that the grooves are far to narrow. Then place a target at the other end of the barrel.

what do you mean by narrow? too thin a line or too tight a spiral?

The groove itself should be much wider. For a handgun, you would have about 1 turn per 20 inches and for a rifle, about 1 twist per 10 inches. Typically six grooves in a barrel.

I know where Lincolnwood is. I am about 40 miles SW, near Naperville.

About your image. You took too much of the twist out. You need one full go-round per 20 inches for a rifle. You have less than a quarter it looks like. Also, the grooves are still too thin. They should be wider, thicker. The width of the six grooves would compromise about 1/3 of the total inside surface. WIDER grooves. Make them WIDE.

i would make it look like some sun light is coming in the end of the gun, by using clever shadowing and gradients

Also, anyone know how to do perspectives so that the grooves ar larger at the outside and narrower are the end

Looking good. I see you got the message - what I mean by wider grooves! The cannon grooves are REALLY wide! But a good visual on how things really are. I had no idea cannons had so many rifling landings. Are you using an imaging program or a 3D program? I am guess a 2D program like PS due to your most recent question.

Had any idea after I closed out this post. Again, it depends on what program, and you skill level. (Assuming a 2D imaging program)

I think I would draw a rectangle, then widen it at one end. From there, you can distort it to give it the "twist" it needs and lay it in place. Make any sense?
