This fan project was a collaboration with my good friend, Filip Bazarewski (Bazar), who is also a huge fan of the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 game from CD Projekt Red, set to release April 16, 2020. He did the renders and the keyframe art while I did the presentations, logos, and the poster showing the technical readout. If it weren’t for him, we wouldn’t have this project. The origin starts with the statement: “Hey, Sean, how would you place this logo on this render?” and then it sort of becomes a blur. 70-80 combined hours later, we have what follows. Also, special thanks to Bevan Brown and Kaito Shiihara for looking over the poster and helping with some of the Japanese translations. I hope you enjoy our hard work!
The Chigura™ - The Modern Bolt Pistol BodyMod
The Chigura™ is a product available from the company, Arasaka, in Cyberpunk 2077’s world. This is a magnet-controlled bolt pistol that works on a rail system and is designed to be discrete and functional, elegant, yet powerful. It is a truly capable hand-to-head weapon for covert operations as well as a bodyguard’s last resort. Some options feature a bolt firing mechanism. Here we have a few slides from a confidential slideshow from Arasaka for shareholders:
The Chigura™ - The Ultimate in Tactile Diplomacy
The Chigura has been designed to be a truly visceral experience. The design is sexy while the results are devastating. Here, you can see the technical features of the piece alongside the keyframe that inspired them.
Thus concludes this deep dive into some of the design and inspiration of how we feel some of the design and process of a weapon is made at CD Projekt Red. Filip and I were pretty excited, passing ideas and images back and forth, tweaking and refining until we ended up with these. We hope that this holds up to the standard that someone from CD Projekt Red could appreciate and we thank you for checking this out.
If you haven’t already, check out my Cyberpunk 2077 Logos and Assets collection that I’m currently adding to where I’ve re-made many of the logos and designs found in the Cyberpunk 2077 trailers and gameplay videos. It’s pretty fascinating to see how they’re making a world so detailed that it reaches the process of design as well! :)
