"...or how I learned to stop worrying and do covers."

CD cover for Radutron's cover EP.

Trailer: [link]

It's a fan audio project and it's going to be free for download.
The album is probably going to be finished in February.
I'll update you with news about it when the time has come.
From what I heard until now I can tell you you should really keep an eye out for it!

Because it's a CD-cover and meant to be folded in the middle and include text the composition now look a little off. I don't know if I should upload another cropping to dA - maybe I will update this deviation later.

FALLOUT NEW VEGAS (C) BETHESDA SOFTWORKS. I hope they tolerate my interpretation.

EDIT: Now it's the simple falling version, unlike unrealistic flying version. I decided I like this better.

That reminds me of the song "Slim Pickens does the right thing and rides the bomb to Hell" based on the…

Yeah it reminded me of the same thing.

OK, this one I can nitpick - but only the physics. Graphically, it's impeccable as always.

Falling downwards version really doesn't work for me, I'm afraid. Though I didn't see the flying version. But fins are there for a *reason*: bombs fall fins uppermost, heavy end down.

For this pic to work, with the bomb in that orientation, he either needs a shadow of a plane just above, that's dropped him; or he needs to be on a *trajectory*. Hurled, perhaps by a giant mech, perhaps by a catapult, but definitely in a parabola. Maybe from that crack in the ground, or from over the hill. If he's trailing something (not rocket exhaust! Dust?) then it'd show that up.

Plus, that would work better anyway, with the whole riding a horse cowboy metaphor.

If the amp cable were wrapped around the bomb, and/or one of the screws on the warhead, then it could be dragging the bot behind, which would show the whole "flying forward" better, too - at the moment it seems like it's just hanging there.

Thank you! Yeah, I envy Radutron for NGE:D

Me too XD I love eyebots! :heart:

Call me overly critical, but a bomb dropped like that falls more pointed down, and I think the eyebot would be dragged down, so the patch cable would be tight and it would look slightly out of control if, say, it was trying to correct itself or escape.

Other than that. Sweet

Yeah, I guess you're right. I made a few last minute changes and should have planned this out more carefully fom the beginning. Thanks for pointing it out. Maybe I'll adapt this version one more time.

And thanks!
