    Tags: Andrée Wallin; Art!; Brian Fargo; Wasteland 2

    Today Brian Fargo revealed (via twitter) how the in-game portraits of Wasteland 2 will look like.

    [​IMG]

    The portrait Fargo shows us is created by concept artist Andrée Wallin. When I asked Fargo if Wallin would be making all of Wasteland 2's in-game portraits, he said no -- but this is the quality that the other artist(s) will have to aspire to. In other words, expect some nice portraits.

    Didn't he look like one of the soldiers in CoD MW2? (to deliver some bitching fuel for all wannabe bitchers)

    The concept art looks like it goes in a completely different direction than the in-game concept shot they showed. And the concept art looks much more appealing to me.

    even for modern resolution that is high res for an ingame portrait. I'm guessing they have a separately cropped faceshot and then show you the full thing when you click on the character screen

    come on fargo show us a gameplay screenshot with green hues like this, I want some desolate nature once again untamed by man

    Used one of those cheap to free Unity assets, so it's closer to how gameplay will look. :troll:

    Now this is some goooooood shit. :thumbsup:

    Man this is as fappable as the cover art and scorpitron. Too bad that guy Andre isn't their art director in the game or something, as he seems to really hit the sweet spot with his concept art. This reminds me a bit of JA2 portraits, only better (sharper) and that can only be a good thing.

    Cool hand-drawn portraits in the age of generic 3D character heads... one step backwards in technology, one leap up the incline.

    I think I prefer the original games portraits... Sure this is detailed and realistic and shit, but it lacks soul.

    What Johannes said. I like a lot that they have chosen a guy with normal secondary sexual characteristics for that portrait, but the image itself is soulless and a :decline: from the original Wasteland.

    Fucking hipsters. CGA graphics are one of the last graphical things I could feel a sentiment to, no matter what they'd show. 4- bit color, yeah, so fucking vibrant and full of soul. Everything is better than the original. Unless it involves bloom and cartoon style with wrong colors.
