When I need ideas for what something should look like, I try to break it down into technical components. Things that the vehicle might use to actually work, and things that represent what the purpose of the vehicle is.
So think about things like power supplies, where the engine is, is your vehicle going to be lightly armoured or heavy?
For example some modern tanks have explosive reactive armour (where a directional explosive will propel projectiles in the opposite direction upon contact) so this could be represented in blocks of c4 protruding from the chassis.
If it's meant to be a fast vehicle you may want to consider air resistance and make it a little bit more streamlined.
As for an overall style, have a look at other's concept art for some inspiration, and then draw some stuff on paper. I tend to draw everything on paper first, and re do it until I'm happy before I even begin modelling.
It is a weird-ass turret that looks like something scratched together from spare civilian parts as a last-ditch attempt to stop some evil invaders. Of course, most of that impression is the strange-looking cabin on the turret's left, which makes it look like a crane, not a weapon.
So i would imagine its chassis being of similar build - something ex-civilian just drafted into the military use; a chassis of construction crane or excavator, with whatever armor available just bolted on top, and then whole thing thrown into action. So the original civilian hydraulics would have been bolted with the huge-ass weapon scavenged from captured enemy parts, or from spare supplies on a bombed factory line.
what it really looks like it is made out of scrap metals? D:
Dammit this means I have to redo this whole rotary auto cannon turret and find somehow that it looks futuristic and not made out of ex-civilian era or so. And the "Cabin" thing it is not a cabin it is uhh Decoration! Just a decoration hehe and the only weapon is a gatling nothing else hrrmpf
I think I have wrong imagination for future/sci-fi design
http://eladcorps.tripod.com/kknd/crabauto.jpg I had that on mind and I tried to model that as close as possible then later making a second model out of it to add more details - the turret only not the chassis because I dont really like it
"too long to post"
oh wow thanks for such many technical details O_o well yes I look into that *looks on random enginnering book*. Well I will look if I can then with your info adding more details on it thanks.
