    Hey guys, Im new posting here, but have been a longtime reader/fan. I made a fallout wallpaper last Saturday and wanted to share it with everyone. It's already up in the gallery but I wanted some opinions on it so that my work can be gratified.

    Yeah, if you like it/have any critique of it, please let me know. Oh, and if you're interested in higher/lower res copies of it, send me a PM!

    That's pretty cool Cardil, did you do the 3d work yourself?

    Wow, that is some good work. Hope to see some more cool art work from you guys in the not so distant future. I feel that I must emphasize the 'not' in that!

    If you don't mind me asking, what package did you guys use?

    I just used photoshop. For Images I used things from here @ NMA: the grave, the menu for F3, the gasbot, and the two screenshots.

    The "fallout3" text is from the side of the train on the menu. The big "F3" is from the corner of one of the pictures. The vault screenshot is very visible on the top right side. The other screenshot is obviously superimposed behind the F3 and the Gasbot is rather smeared onto the gravestone. The text is a fallout font I dled a few months back. I think you can find it here on NMA. Add a whole bunch of blending modes and blurs and that's the picture!

    dogma i love the design, but i think that text on the lower right side kind of detracts from the over all level of the picture, although the text itself (the meaning behind it) is great, the visual execution somehow does not fit in. Kudos on a great job, fiddle around with those letters a bit and its going be perfect.

    Do you think I should just scrap the text or darken it or grunge it up a bit or what?

    Thanks for the critique... oh and if anyone uses this for a wallpaper, tell me so I can feel all warm and fuzzy inside...

    amen. i love the whole picture, especially the smudgy effect over the picture and the F3 text. however, it looks as if someone made that wallpaper and you just stuck the "to dwell on the past" text on. if you want to keep it, which is ok, make is smaller and less.. bold, dont be afraid to smudge it too. i still give it 10 / 10

    And cardil, good work, love the angle and the light. 'the diagonal angle is the most powerful' and you've used that well. cheers!
