Courage Today Victory Tomorrow by MarkuzR Courage Today Victory Tomorrow by MarkuzR
This project was actually a bit of a nightmare. Being a huge fan of Fallout 3, I wanted to hang some of the retro-futuristic propaganda art in my office but, alas, couldn't find any. The "Courage Today, Victory Tomorrow" in-game posters always excited me and so I decided that I would try recreating the in-game poster in great detail and large enough that it could become a wall feature.

I had to play through the game until I came across one of the posters on a wall, and then used my digital camera to take a photo of the screen (I was playing on XBox through a projector, and didn't have a capture card at the time). I then had to try and replicate every aspect of the poster as accurately as possible.

My original attempt was all wrong as I couldn't really see much detail on the Brotherhood Paladin and, instead, sketched it out by sitting in front of my own full size Brotherhood statue. It wasn't until shortly thereafter that I found a version of the poster online (albeit rather small) and could see that I'd used far too much detail in the Brotherhood soldier. I therefore scrapped everything that I'd done (which I've also added to this gallery as a sketch) and started again with less detail but more accurate to the original in-game poster.

The finished artwork is 8858 x 9466 pixels on a 75cm x 80cm canvas. Created entirely in Photoshop CS2 using a Wacom Intuos A3 tablet.

Hmmm...did you notice the top left corner of the Enclave's flag has the European Union stars (in white), plus a bigger star in the middle of the blue rectangle?

Indeed. The flag is based upon the 1776 Colonial American flag. Or at least that's what it looks like.

You said you created this with the intent of making posters for your office? Are you selling posters of your Fallout artwork?

Wow!! Looks fantastic! Any chance you might put this up for sale in a DA print shop? I've been looking for this poster online all over the place but most of the original prints have been sold and they haven't made more unfortunately. Either way though, you did a great job man, congrats!

Perfect job, It looks just like the actual poster in the game. You have a full sized Brotherhood Statue? You're so lucky. :XD:
