To be honest, its not up to standerd. Way too blurry in places and some dodgy anatomy. Needs some lessons in general composition also, not to mention to actaully make the characters LOOK like there from fallout.

Sorry guys, but for a front cover this is definently not proffesional.

Sure it might not be "perfect", but St. Toxics cover looks approximatley 1000 times better than the other one by the crybaby.

I might have you design me a cover for my PNP game.

Good work Toxic! icon_dance

They have posted a new version of the cover:

It does look better from the first one.

maybe, but it still looks gay, not falloutish. I looked at the art work by the dude who did this shit cover and hes like an 18 virgin who plays warcraft 20 hours a day LOL

The power armor looks a little better though, so at least he can read

Maybe after 10 or 20 more tries he'll get it right icon_evil_laugh

not really that much better. the mutants still look like orcs.

i have to say i'm a fan of the background on the back cover, though. looks good & fits the atmosphere.

And he got rid of the crap in the background of the front which is good. The super mutant is now green which is good.

But it looks like WoW with guns.

It's still crap, better crap than before, but crap.

I think it should have pictured a full suit of power armour.

And yes, those do look too much like orcs.

I am posting this at our boards in the likely event that it gets deleted by that bastard who used to work for Gamestop:

Dear morons:

Look at the new and (un)improved cover, it looks like a seventy-year old virgin who plays WoW twenty hours a day made that bullshit, LOOK at the cover, 50's stylings my ass, since when did we have neon hair in the 50's?

Oh, and you are unable to even get the ghoul right, Jesus Christ, its obvious that whatever asshole drew that is a moron who lied about playing Fallout, and the dipshit that greenlighted that piece of shit is almost stupid enough to live in Auburn Hills, the only thing you did right was the goddamn background, I mean you dumbasses do not even have the sense to steal quality(from people who are willing to give you free stuff), and honestly, I doubt even those brainless fucks at Hastings are stupid enough to carry that piece of shit, let alone someone who sells Tabletop games for a living, good luck with sales lower than Runescape 2.

You deserve them.

Any critique before I send it to those assholes?

Also, should I fire off a copy of this post to Tim Buckley, or can somebody just fire off a nineteen letter email to Nuklearpower(tabletoppers, played Fallout, really awesome) Brian@nuklearpower.com , and Ctrl-Alt-Del(Tim played Fallout2 and has gotten ahold of 1)

yea that bit is good.

things that got better:
*general art style - less fuziness, funny colours and curved lines (the PA); less stupid facial expressions (AKA eyebrows and little finger)
*the Power Armor - MUCH better
*vault suit - MUCH better (stripe pattern, removed pads n gloves and such)
*main caption - MUCH better: font, style, everything. (omg re-used original art aiee)
*front background - better
*the mutant - slightly better (he's now much larger and greener) - and hey, he got a fancy peroxide mini-mohawk to look better! yarr! icon_pelvic_thrust Anyhow, he now looks more like this than before

things that are still wrong:
*ghoul's and mutant's looks (ye still bad; far from perfect), minigun wielding technique
*style in which faces of humans and muscles are done (kitsch/amateur) - tho thanks for fixing the eyebrows and that funny little finger
*general second-rate-action-flick-poster composition/layout of piled-up colourful badassness
*dual-wielded guns

new things: (back cover)
the good: background (best thing together with the improved power armour)
the bad: the figures - not Fallouty at all.

WARNING!
in case some new member (and we have some these days) comes over to this thread and sees this link, be informed that the poll does not regard the linked cover but it's older and visibly different version.

super mutants are NOT ORCS!!!!!!!!!!
50's style

and most important...
hard edge, but comical - like rough sodomy while dressed as a clown
