Thanks again to Fallout Ranger for this:

Another inspired piece from Defonten, famous for his earlier City RuinsCafe of Broken Dreams, Brand New Reno:

New Reno and
Well, I'm back into my tenderly loved "fallout" genre icon_wink A few words about the painting. Did this for personal satisfaction and fun for about two weeks. The initial very rough sketch on paper was done while I was on the plane returning to my home country from New York city. So it was definitely NYC that inspired the initial sketch and composition. Due to my daytime freelance work I was able to work on this piece only at nights which regularly brought tonns of slippers thrown onto my poor head by my wife icon_wink


In the "fallout" universe, New Reno setting is definitely one of the most impressive and dramatic places that the central character encounters on his quest. So I thought it would be fun to kind of improvise a little on the idea and concept of post-apoc New Reno and try to make a little "research" on the way it could look in real life.
Another great thing that inspired me and kept me in the right "mode" are two iconic songs - legendary song by Ink Spots - "I don't want to set the world on fire" (1941) and Lois Armstrong's "Hello Dolly" (1965). I didn't use any photo references or photo footage but did use 3D throughout the composition. The biggest 3D element in the scene is the foreground "RENO" signboard (fully overpainted though).

This isn't news, there's a fan art forum for these things.
Also, broken link.

He's obviously feeling the stress of all eyes being on him during this tumultuous time here at DaC. Cut the guy a break, huh?

Yeah, can't link to NMA files like that. Here you go

Defonten's art is more than fan art. It. Just. Is.

Too clean.

The highlights aren't the same when there are different materials and dirt. It's too....clonish

It's not as good as his earlier works and that image doesn't remind me of New Reno at all.
