Enclave Soldier by AdrianBorgnine Enclave Soldier by AdrianBorgnine
I've noticed a rather disturbing trend here, on dA. This place is being swarmed by all kinds of Fallout 3 related stuff.

So, this is a Fallout 2 artwork, for all those that feel the same as me about The Post Black Isle Role Playing Game.

I'm getting better at those things, so they take more of my time, but they're also more detailed. I must change it, if I want to finish all the planned ones before holiday ends.

This one depicts, as you probably noticed, an Enclave Soldier, encased completly in Advanced Power Armor. It is supposed to give the reader of "Nomad" an idea of how a Power Armor looks.
I took my time to design and work out every single piece of this wonderfull piece of american industry. The only thing that the game makers provided was the helmet, some pauldrons and the rough idea of the whole thing. I'm quite pleased with the outcome. Looks retro enough to be Fallout, and modern enough to be Advanced PA. The hands were a nightmare to work on, though.
The gun is a slighly redesigned version of the "Gyrojet" [link]

Enough ramble. Made with Photoshop and Wacom Graphire 4 Tablet. B&G&W technique.

Download for higher (1400 x 1983) resolution.

Hope you'll like.

Note: Operation Anchorage is too short and kinda boring. Even gauss sucks.

This reminds me more of the Engineers from Prometheus and the predators from Predator, and I don't know why.

I miss the Wattz rifle. Classic.

It's to be expected, your disturbing trend, I mean. People play the new generation Fallout and fail to realise that there was an old generation. Hopefully your magnificent art will help educate them. And God bless you, is it good!

Not only have you made one of the coolest pics I've seen in...nearly all 4 years on dA, but you've also you've made it clear that FO2 is still superior with your post.
I swear the Beth games are nauseating. Even the one with past Black Isle developers lacked terribly, it was better than the others but still nothing like we old fans want.

BEAUTIFUL. I love the advanced PA.

seems like every time I look at this I'm just like "dear god that is so freaking AWESOME"

go enclave :D
run into them in the wasteland without proper armor and you're a gonner

Cool. I wish I had stumbled upon your APA version before I was done with mine. And yes, there isn't enough FO fanart out there, which is a shame.

I just wanted to say that this is the best idea of Enclave Power armor EVER. And everything like helmet and pauldrons which are kinda clearly shown in Fallout 2, are perfect too! For me it's 20/10 : D
AdrianBorgnine Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2009
Big thanks. I really appreciate that.
Bladerting Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2009
I am amazed! someoen who finaly understand hwo the APA MKII look like!
MassiveCrab Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2009
This is stunning. great detail!
Mase-Face Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2009
Yay for Fallout 1 & 2 APA.
Yep just the hands need to be fixed and the rifle could be lots cooler and this would be awesome. Along with a nice slightly-purple tinted black finish on the armor. :D
AdrianBorgnine Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2009
Explain how would you see a cooler rifle - this one looks good enough for me. And I don't think that adding purple would be good for it - it's without colour for a reason.
Mase-Face Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2009
My bad, I didn't realize you were aiming for a specific gun.
Mase-Face Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2009
Assuming you didn't try to draw any specific weapon I just think the rail on top seems a bit strange and the barrel could be a bit thicker. Regardless it's amazing

bad ass pic man !!!!
Cozakaxo Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2009
Nice, i was a bit dissapointed when the Enclave power armour in F3 didn't give me the +4 str.
CharlieChan69 Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Very nice work!

What's B&G&W technique?
AdrianBorgnine Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2009
Thank you!
B&G&W means Black & Grey & White - this picture is made using only those three exact colours. I gave it a name and shortened it because I already made some pieces in it, and I'm going to make more in the future. I really like it.
CharlieChan69 Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah that's a nice style.

Anyway, keep it up! :D
FruFruHM Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2009
Woot! Retro Enclave, not one of those West Cost pansies. Damn that is some lovely deatail work.
AdrianBorgnine Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2009
I appreciate your opinion on the west coasters.
whatsthesitch Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2009
Wow that's neat!

Though I feel like the gun and the hands are a bit too small.
AdrianBorgnine Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2009
Thank you for your observations.
The hands are maybe a bit too small, but the thing that makes them look like that the most is the fact that they are less armored than the rest of this bulky thing.
