    Fallout 3 art test?

    DaC-Sniper at DaC pointed out this test art with a note (an art test, not concept art):
    This was done by me for Bethesda Softworks, as a kind of "art test"... they sent me an illustration of this character, and I had to design him in 3d. Hope you guys like it!

    Checking it up, DeviantArt's ConejoBlanco 's real name is Jonah Lobe. And what does Ashley Cheng say about Johan Lobe in his blog (my highlight)?
    Character Artists - Christiane Meister, Jonah Lobe, Gary Noonan. Christiane made the new armor and weapons. Jonah created the new Aeylid creatures you fight, and Gary get their animations working.
    So looks legit, as an art test. But note that he doesn't claim it's for Fallout 3 anywhere, but with the title "raider" and the look of it, that looks very likely.

    Link: Johan Lobe Raiders art test

    EDIT: Bethesda Dev MrSmileyFaceDude notes:
    When an artist applies for a job at Bethesda, they are often given a 2D drawing and asked to create a textured, 3D model, so they can show how well they can take concept art and turn it into 3D art. That's the kind of "art test" Jonah's talking about. It wasn't a proof of concept or anything like that.

    cool,

    but could we get a full body shot? (so long as hes wearing a loin cloth at the least)


    so wait, why didn't they just make the real thing for themselves?
    why only do an artsy version? perhaps they are farther back than we thought and this is just an upgraded form from concept art?
    We can always opt for electric brain shock to forget our memories. So long as we remember to make a note to play Fallout and Fallout 2!!! and AFTERFALL w007!!!! 1337ness!!!!!!

    It's a bit of concept art. Mail the guy who made it.

    Because it was posted on a semi-private blog, perhaps?

    Fuck, man, think for yourself.

    Is it really necessary to insult people who post here? Perhaps Goweigus posted without fully thinking it through, but did he deserve to have his literacy questioned? Or to be called a motherfucker?

    At least that raider does not have that fucked up round face Oblivion style! Or maybe is not from Fallout 3?

    I wonder if this will go in the history books as the first footage for Fallout 3.

    1. Looks like a real doll.

    2. Looks more like a tribal, rather than a raider.

    3. Going off on that kid was definitely unnecessary. No wonder this community is so looked down upon.

    Is it disturbing that I thought the same?

    Yeah, no wonder this community is looked down upon when people just make snap judgement based on cursory glances.

    Goweigus has been steadily chippin' away at our nerves for some time now.

    We still love you, though, Goweigus. You're our retarded lovechild!

    It's called "tough love," people. This community used to be a helluva lot tougher.

    Also yes, I got a huge Tribal vibe from the pic.

    Just get rid of the kid then.

    Snap judgment based on cursory glances is right. 'Cause I haven't been following this place on and off for years now.

    it does look awfully plastiky..reminds me of the talking heads .. maybe Sullik .. but that was 98 this is circa 2005 .. dont wanna pass judgement since it might just be an employment test ... we'll have to see ... still this further confirms the fact that the game has been in production for some time and when it will surface it will be too late to act on a possible backlash from the comunities (a good excuse)

    WTF!? The first thing that popped into mind was - 'Tribal'

    Though, not bad art per se, it is just a 3D Render of concept art. Thus not indicative of in-game art. Like for e.g. a real screenshot would be.

    "new Aeylid creatures you fight..." - Another WTF moment for me.

    Well, the rape is well and truly underway.
    It will only get worse before it gets better, mark my words.

    The render that Jonah Lobe did would serve very well as a talking head for a Tribal, in Fallout 2.

    This might be a good indicator on the level of detail on the character models in Fallout 3.

    In any case, it's good to see news with some sort of image for a change. I was tired of the old "we can't say crap, etc, etc." speech from Bethesda appearing on the news constantly.

    Looks nice, but it looks more for a tribal then raider for me... well if this is only "test art" we can hope that official graphic (if we see them some day) can be much better.
    Wooz take a nap ;)

    Why people say that its more like a tribal rather than a raider? I think this is a very eronate logic. Tribals cant be raiders?
