Fallout’s Popular Vault-Boy Image You Haven’t Seen
We all love those little drawings in Fallout, which features the popular so called ‘Vault-Boy’. Well, for some reason there was an image that did not make the cut for the game called ‘Childkiller’. Judging from the title you can see why it didn’t make the cut, but they did make a image for that and you can see how this was a bad idea from the start. Funny. Yes. Bad. Very.
The creator and artist of those Fallout Vault-Boy images and cartoons, Brian Menze, has finally released the original unused image titled ‘Childkiller’. He had this to say about the image that did not make the cut:
“This image was unused and the only Vault Boy image to ever be cut from Fallout 2. (I’m sure you can figure out why) I remember when I got the request to do a perk illustration for “child Killer” that there would be no way to keep in from being offensive. I mean really! How do you make an illustration of “child killer” and keep it from being offensive? Anyway for some reason, I thought this was the least offensive way to do it. I have no idea what i was thinking. Even the designer who requested it realized it was a bad idea, so we nixed it. Looking back on it now, I can’t believe I drew this.”
The image has already been removed from his personal Deviant page. Seriously, somebody out there needs to make a T-shirt out of it ASAP and send me one thanks!
I’ll probably just keep it in the chest drawer.
