Wasteland Legend by tansy9 Wasteland Legend by tansy9
This is me being really naughty and avoiding my dissertation...
It has been a lot of fun though!

I have a new Xbox 360, so I have a new Fallout 3 character, though I haven't got Fallout New Vegas yet, but soon...

So here she is with Dogmeat, taking a break from shooting raiders. :)


The Lone Wanderer, Dogmeat and Fallout 3 are Bethesda Softworks 2008

This artwork is Tansy Appleby 2011

Hi hi!

This is an amazing piece.

I ... I am finishing a Fallout fan fiction book. I know, I know, "fan fiction" is a loaded term, but not if you load it right. :)

It's going to be released for free (naturally) to Smashwords sometime after September; I have the first 2 parts done, only the last one remains.

May I use your cover art for this book?

In fact, I'm a little agitated ... I just finished writing a little Fallout interactive story, and my girlfriend said it's my master piece (she is a talented writer; I am blessed), hehe ...

I still feel flattered. Don't know about master piece, but maybe you would like it as well?

But the thing is, your painting fits the story's closure PERFECTLY. I wasn't even planning on adapting that story into the ending of the book I'd before I saw your work, so thank you!

To go back to the original topic, if you will give me your permission to use the painting here as cover art, with the book's title, "FALLOUT: The Tom Walema Paradox" and a by-line, I would be eternally grateful. Full credits to you of course.


No, this is Fallout.

And in case you're interested, here's the interactive story I will adapt into the final part of the book:…

In case you're not ...

Then: :(

Daddy James isn't going to be too impressed with her...he's a doctor and smoking isn't good for your health.


With all seriousness, this is some gorgeous work, tansy9! The colours and pose really sell the nature of the picture!

you should try it on a pc/laptop with win 7 64-bit with a processor over 2.0GHZ 4.0+RAM..
toss in the circulating ENB series to give you game as much graphic eye candy real time play as your illustration here!

Thanks! Yeah my characters don't run around in their underpants, it's not practical.... :P

I know; dresses aren't practical either to stop bullets (even if some of them are pretty...)
