I find the design of it very cool, but the angle seems wrong. I think it should more point at the center.

I don't think it's a good way, but i didn't want to redraw it again from zero, so i modelled it in max, textured and rendered. But all the animations will be drawn manually, without render...
Here's the first result:

I don't know why but I feel as if the right hand should be on that thing on the middle of the gun that looks like a magazine.

Yep, right! That's a magazine! :D

If it's a rendered model now, then you really should work a bit on making the angle not so extreme while you still can. As Timmy pointed out, it's a neat design conceptually, but it's positioned such that Doomguy's going to have a hard time shooting at anything that's not to his left. :P

Unless you're going for one of those weird Strife Assault Gun-esque "un-ready" frames.

Do you ever get that feeling when a weapon isn't at *just* the right angle? Sometimes it looks like he's just pointing his firearm at something off to the side. The handgun looks great, however. :P

It looked okay for a concept sprite, but it doesn't really stand a chance against something that looks like this:

As for why, then one obvious flaw is that the lighting has "seams" that clearly indicate the different surfaces the model consists of - instead of having a constant flow.
And the big killer would be that it simply looks too plain and without any kind of quirks, details or even interesting shading.

Now now, Blox. Not everyone has your black magic skills.
