Is this the old desert rat that has the information about the strange goings on out at Sore Thumb mesa?

Looks like he could be your best friend or speedy undoing if you're not careful.

I get the feeling he's one of the AI companions. Maybe you have to keep him stocked with alcohol or he goes berserk.

I bet he'd trade that gun for a bottle of Snake Squeezins :P

I think it's the weird angle.

These artist are amazing. The portrats in the game alone are going to make it worth the purchase.

I forgot did I mention that the portraits should be as big as you can get away with. :)

I think it's Ralf.

After being rescued from the torture room in the Temple of Blood by the Rangers, young Ralf pledged his support to the Rangers and their mission. After being critically wounded about ten minutes later by a slavering Bloodbeast, the Rangers decided that while Ralf's spirit was willing, his flesh was far, far too weak. Also, he really only knew how to handle a knife. The Rangers patched him up and sent him to talk to Ellen back in Quartz, figuring that giving him a Very Important Mission (helping keep Quartz safe) would be kinder than leaving him behind in Needles to renew his Sand Bum ways.

That worked for while: he trained hard and learned to handle a gun. However, you never forget your first love, and soon the siren's song of Snake Squeezins was just too much for him. Since he wasn't gifted with foresight like the Oracle with the Desert Nomads, Ralf drifted around the area. Thanks to the Rangers, it was a lot safer than it could have been, but it was still pretty dangerous, which is why he kept his trusty shotgun, Ol' Blue.

He eventually settled in a scavenged shack, near the foothills of the mountains, not far from the old silver mine. When he's hard up for money, he'll brave the Ghouls and Scavs and try to mine a few bits of silver. His door is always open to Rangers, but everyone else had best stay away. He even managed to scavenge on of the marker flags from the Guardian's Citidel after the Rangers swept though there like a hurricane of destruction. Even though the Guardians are now long gone, people remember those flags, and it keeps curious New Wavers and random scum away.

Meh... its ok..... Honestly is a bit generic... It needs a story to go with it... hint hint ;)

The barrel does look bent to me, but yeah its probably just the angle :)

Good to see some art which really reflects the grim and gritty reality of what human beings would actually look like when all the modern amenities, just basic things like production of clothing and food, when all that is destroyed, and people are forced to survive by scavenging.

The gun barrel looks fine - I'm more worried about his broken shoulder! This guy is definitely a survivor. He's clearly been through some real shit. But look at that cheery smile! Of course he's friendly!

Love the detail on his face. Beautiful work.
