Commission for :iconssjcharon:

There seems to be a lot of time in between drawings of my interpretation of Fallout: Equestria, but what matters is that they are still coming and there's a bunch more being worked on as I write these lines, so the "A.U.F.o.E." (for the committee of convenient initials) is still rolling and will be rolling for quite some time. Here we have Gilda, as a Talon Merc from Fallout 3, and Greta, as part of The Gunners from Fallout 4. Drawing their outfits was both enjoyable and a complete pain in the ass. Gilda's was easier, since I'm quite familiar with the Talon Mercs, but since I've never encountered The Gunners I was kind of shooting in the dark with Greta's. I hope you guys like it, and that you find it suitable for her.

I like the idea of long friends turned against each other and forced to fight among themselves, as much as the idea of enemies putting their differences aside and fighting for a common goal. I should do more pictures like this, they are thoroughly enjoyable.

I didn't notice until now how many of my Fallout pieces take place indoors, without much of natural light in them, and almost no sky shots at all. Granted, once you start playing Fallout 3 you kind of spend three quarters of the game crawling through abandoned train stations filled with ghouls, but that's no excuse to make every drawing take place in a bunker, or a silo, or a computer room, or a restaurant. So it feels good to draw some building and get some more practice drawing menacing clouds. All that nuclear radiation sure did no favors to the world in the days after the vaults were re-opened. Drawing the buildings wasn't much of a challenge as much as it was giving the background depth of field, and making it a bit more colorful. I am of the George Miller school of thinking, just because the apocalypse happened doesn't meant it has to be bleak and colorless.

As per usual with this series, here's the original picture that inspired this one, in this case a stand alone drawing of Gilda Comission - Talon Merc Gilda by jamescorck. I don't know what I was thinking when designing those boots she's wearing. Maybe I wasn't thinking, and that's why they came off as so stupid and pointless. I think I've gotten better at drawing weapons too, don't you think?

I hope you guys like it! Please let me know what you think in the comments!

Awesome art as always James, and I completely agree just because the apocalypses happened doesn't mean their is no color.  in fact, times when nuclear energy was released in space all the electrons would interact with the atmosphere, creating an aura of light.  Just like with what you would see with the Northern Lights.  Now does that still take place with all that radiation remaining in the world of Fall out or real life, I dont really know.  

 But, perhaps you could do some artwork depicting the moment nukes were going off, you have the beautiful lights in the sky offset by the following nuclear blast. but it depends if the nukes going off on the surface rather than space.    An interesting thought none the less

Griffons are the unsung heroes of My Little Pony. We don't have enough of them, and every time they are in the scene it fills me with joy.
