I was inspired by this pretty old piece by Opacus:

Really loved the shading and atmosphere of it so I decided to make my own one of a different soldier. No points for guessing what soldier it is though.

Haha yeah now that you say it i was thinking about the new vegas menu. I didnt played it for a very long time so i wasn't sure. Whatever, that's a very great work

@Rainpowtato, thanks mate, it's based off a screenshot from fallout new vegas so it should be familiar if you've played the game.

I'm also super hyped for number 4, just 17 or 18 weeks to go! :P

Remind me of fallout.. Can't wait for the 4th !

Amazing! It looks so reallistic! Keet it up!

@saiko-raito, thanks dude!

Yea, the fallout games are some of my favourites. Still eagerly anticipating the next one in the series to come out...

@Pix.Ed. thanks! I'm quite happy with how the lighting turned out too.

There's another piece I'm working on at the moment too and the lighting in it is driving me up the wall. Metal reflections and multiple light sources are really tricky...

Bark Snarly (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 9/17/2014 09:24

@Opacus Awww shucks... 

I honestly still prefer yours, I like the lighting a bit more and the blue is lovely but that might be helped a bit because I actually prefer cooler colours.  (not that you can tell from the works I've submitted!)

Anyways, thanks a lot dude, nice to hear that you like it!

@Evidence, Thanks man!

uh oh.. Falllout characters.. I love that games

Pix.Ed. (Level 6 SWAT) @ 9/16/2014 14:13

A 5-star piece, ambient and mood created by the lighting are just perfect.

Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 9/15/2014 13:24

Hey way cool man, I'm honoured! I actually checked it because I was thinking 'Hey, that looks like my old Combine piece'. Also because very competent pixels. Actually I'd say this quite surpasses mine. My Combine feels a bit flat when I look at yours. Great stuff (:

Evidence (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 9/15/2014 12:53

Woah ! Right colours used, lighting is great 

Bark Snarly (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 9/14/2014 05:50


Thanks man, I've just started downloading a bunch of mods for NV too. I only played it when I had the xbox 360 version so playing it now with a bunch of mods is gonna be awesome!

Can't wait till fallout 4 is announced, hopefully it'll be set in a cool location too.

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 9/14/2014 03:52

Nicely done! The shading is very convincing, clusters look clean and colours are carefully picked!

I love New vegas, still playing it with mods. Let's hope we get a "next gen" Fallout soon.

Bark Snarly (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 9/13/2014 20:10


Thanks mate!

Bark Snarly (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 9/13/2014 20:10


Thanks! Used a few more colours than I would've liked but it was worth making the piece look a bit smoother instead of having fewer colours I think.

Daruda (Level 4 Button Man) @ 9/13/2014 12:54

The palette looks really good with those lights. 

felchqueen (Level 6 SWAT) @ 9/13/2014 12:41

Nice lighting and detail
