Fallout 3: Virtue to Vice by PatrickBrown Fallout 3: Virtue to Vice by PatrickBrown
Damn it's been a while since I've uploaded something haha!

This has taken me some time to finish, mainly because I was on holidays for a bit and some other things happened.. But here it is ;)

I've been playing Fallout 3 again, it's the Game Of The Year edition with the extra content :D I haven't made it to the good stuff yet, haha I had to start from scratch ALL OVER AGAIN!!!

This was so enjoyable to draw, The Behemoth and Deathclaw are something different than I'm used to ;) Also you'll notice the Raiders to the right, one with her head spiked to the post :D Damn I love the Railway Rifle, best gun! The weapons I've put in here are usually my favorites in the game, Only I left out the Ol' Painless!

You'll also notice a few little suprises :woohoo:
Enjoy, and please let me know what you think..

This is an awesome piece of work! I love all of the little details you included: the VaultTec Bobblehead, the RadAway, Stimpak, Nuka-Cola Quantum, and the first aid kit... Also, the random raider flying up in the air in the background made me laugh! I particularly love the Super Mutant Behemoth and the way you drew your Vaultie.

A couple of little nitpicks that someone else probably pointed out before, but that I agree with: the flames on the Lone Wanderer's Shishkebab should be casting light on his jumpsuit and on the other nearby objects (the bobblehead and the first aid kit), and he should be wearing an oven mitt on the hand holding it, which is how it's wielded in the game. (You'd have to imagine that the thing is pretty hot to the touch, yeah?)

On the whole though, this is a great piece of work! Keep it up!
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
184 out of 189 deviants thought this was fair.

Like usual you´ve hitted the right spot. The angle is chosen perfect. The perspective sucks you into the happening. And all the small things like the shine of the clouds that gives the whole image the depth through blind spots justmake this piece outstanding. You have thought of so many details in here that it is fun to look at it, and this can take many minutes.

I feel bad saying that the behemoths arm looks a bit wrong (also the fist looks too soft. he should make a very strong fist, this would make it look more powerful and aggressive), but this is something that you only notice when you search for something to say. Also the fire isnt really fire-ish, its more like electricity. The flames could look rounder, more organic. But that also doesnt matter, really. This here just has to look like a critique, but in the end its a big compliment :)

for any language thats wrong here i am sorry, but english isnt my native language :)

That's a shiskebab actually, you can buy the blueprints from Lucky Harith, one of the four wasteland caravans from the game.

This artwork alone describes the whole eipcness Fallout 3 was. Great job, one of my faves.

Pork-n-beans, medkit, stimpack, and a bobble head...not to mention Nuka He can whip up a few nuka-grenades to go with he railway rifle and Shishkebab.

Well after he survives the Behemoth, deathclaw, and raiders...

Love your style, and the colors you used. The Lone Wanderer Looks bad ass. Thanks for the time and effort you put into it It's a great pic.
moonlightprincess99 Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2013
Okay, I can see the Sniper Rifle, the Shishkebab, the Combat Shotgun (my weapon of choice), the Plasma rifle, and two Frag Grenades..... very impressive arsenal you have. But wait.....

Where's the Lincoln Repeater? *gasp* Don't tell me you forgot the best weapon in the game!
Quite frankly, I'm shocked.

I love this portrait. Being a HUGE fan of the game (as you might have guessed), I love how you captured the chaos and bleakness of the Capitol Wasteland. I'm also very glad to see that you've captured the quirkiness of the game as well. For example, the flying body right above the Super Mutant Behemoth (everytime I use V.A.T.S. in the game, it makes me laugh to see the torso do ten backflips in the air) and the Pip-Boy figurine in the left corner.

Your characters look quite polished and balanced, and the monsters look just like they do in the game, which is something I always look for in fan art. I will say that the skin tone of the Super Mutant Behemoth looks a little too dark, but anyone whose played the game know that if you run across a super Mutant Behemoth, you're not really worried about his skin tone. :)

All in all, I give this a 4.5 out of 5. You obviously have tremendous talent and I hope to see more awesome Fallout pics in the future.

dbiroh Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2012
I dig the plasma and sniper rifle but only use the latter for the shots too long range for my Perforator, and because I typically prefer stealthing, I like the dartgun over the railgun(badass it may be). And have you ever triedJinwei's shocksword? cool effect. Sounds like we'd make a cool team though. Love the nuka-cola bottles and the bobblehead. I have that thing on my table at home, laugh everytime I think about it....... sigh.. Im a dork.

Jay54 Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2012
Try as I might, I can't find anything wrong with this drawing. Anything I'd say would be such blatant nitpicking that it wouldn't even count as creative criticism. Everything about this is awesome. This is the standard I hold all fanart to; plenty of familiar, beloved elements from the original property with enough of your own artistic spin on things to give it its own identity and keep it from looking like something drawn from a reference. That, and it mirrors the kind of mayhem experienced when trotting through the Wasteland.

I once encountered a bug in the game that made a deathclaw and behemoth appear and attack me at the same time.

I tell you, no amount of rockets or plasma rifles could save me from that.

I'm soo sorry to say this but someone stole your art and put it on Facebook and Imgur as his.
