    For me it's between 3rd and 4th guy (moustache or blockhead); with the moustache the guy looks like the circus "strong man". The wink's funny, too. Guess I'd vote moustache guy first, then.


    This action figure guy looks suspiciously like the moustache dude:

    Some other pics:
    [spoiler:13d9912e57]Is this guy a circus strongman?

    This guy looks cool at first, but maybe a bit too "soft", like someone sprinkled fake blood on him:

    At least he looks better than these (which are kind of like what came to mind originally: a strongman in an old silent black and white film... so these aren't really that close):

    And don't forget Jesse!


    Yeah; I think it's more the action figure than anything else. heh :cool:

    Just posting my versions of the male hero images for the appearance mod. I decided to change a bit the position and expresion of the bald dude, trying to give him some personality without adding anything:

    They look really nice, especially the bald dude! I like that little mischievous smirk on his face.

    Look at all those vaultboys :D

    I like um :)

    However the bald dude is not that vaulboyish anymore. but don't get me wrong though I really like him.

    If you have time and it isn't to much ask, could you make some more bald vaulboys? I would love to see some variants!

    They're definitely nice, but as Oracle said, they don't look as vaultboyish anymore.

    The bald one looks a bit like a DBZ character.

    The hairy dude looks a bit like a lesbian (it's the lean back).

    Try and adjust them slightly to match the 50's style. You're definitely taking them in an interesting direction and I like your contributions so far! :clap:

    Wooo, they are beautiful, almost perfect there's just something to change but you really have a huge talent for drawing Vault Boy ;).

    Well, I think the " bald dude " really sounds vaultboyish but that position is not enough falloutish =).

    The hair of " long hair dude " looks too much like women's hair, but otherwise it's excellent.

    For the normal, is perfect !

    Keep it up my friend :D, I'm really pleased to follow your contributions, an excellent work every time !

    awesome, lionxavier. You've got real talent there, man.

    I love the pose
    I love the faces
    I love the hair
    The only thing i think is off with the bald dude is that he looks mean. Vault boy is always smiling (well, mostly)

    :clap: :salute:

    The Vault boy is meant to be a visual representation of the optimism of the times and the Vault -Tec mascot...I think Mr. Baldie needs to be less aggressive and more friendly - as for the long hair - I think it looks right, we just aren't use to the appearance yet, and when it's resized and attached to the correct backdrop I think it will be perfect. :wink:

    A reminder of the previous designs...

    I like them though as other said the bald dude should be a bit more friendly and one more little thing which I think would loss after resizing is the detail on the shoes though I like them but unsure how they will end up in game size.

    Thanks for the feedback, guys. That's essential if we really want definitive results that please the most amount of people possible. Now, time for some more pics:

    First, some corrections. After some testing, I've edited the Default Dude to give him more Vault-Boyish proportions:

    Secondly, the Long-Haired Dude. I've modified the hair to try to make it look less... "feminine". But since that nice-n-happy face of the Vault Boy is one of the reasons that make it hard to achieve, I've also made an "un-shaved" version of it.
    1. 2.

    Now for the Bald Dude. I'm gonna show you a few variants of it, including hair-less default dude, un-shaved and some edits of my original head-lifted version. Now it's your turn to choose one:
    1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

    And now, a little bonus: the Black Dude, in standard and two bald versions:
    1. 2. 3.

    EDIT: Adding numbers to the different pics, as suggested by Oracle.

    Nice work again LionXavier...I personally love the rough faced long hair dude, plus the others are excellent as well. :clap:

    Wow man, it's awesome, the long haired is now perfect ;) ! For the Bald dude, I like the un-shaved version and the third image.

    Nice for the Black dude, I try to make them in frm format tomorrow :D

    From the long haired the unshaved is my choice, form the balds I like the first one though though the unshaved looks good too about the black dude the first one looks real awesome now.

    Damn, Those are awesome LionXavier!!

    I like the shaved long hair and the bearded bald one the best.
    I think both eyebrows of the bearded bald one should be like his right eye one. With the smile he still remains "vaultboy like" enough.

    You shoul give the picture number, so its easiers the to dicsuss your awesome work :)

    I really the nasty looking bald vaultboy to. Maybe he can be as the evil twin brother ;)

    The black vaultboys are great too!

    Well, as promised here are some test in frm, the normal long hair, the bald dude un-shaved and the black dude with hair.

    Personally I like them all, especially the black dude, it's really nice :D !

    All very nice! Black dude is definitely top notch work. :ok:

    I plan on including the bald/long hair dude and default female images in the upcoming Christmas release of the RP. So, if you plan to make any changes to them, don't wait until December 24th. ;)

    Thanks for the compliment, guys.

    O.K. Oracle, I'm gonna edit my previous post right now to add a number before each version of every corresponding Dude. And here's your proposed Bald dude version, which would be number 6:

    They're perfect, Snake, but there's a little thing: all the images have been edited once again to add another Vault Boyish proportion detail that the pics were lacking: the correct size of the arms. The ones that are shown now would be the definitive versions.

    Thank you for such an honour, Killap. And don't worry, I'm almost totally sure that all the necessary changes have been taken care of.

    exelent work!
    maybe you should make a new thread with this pics and the vault girls ones under the name of vault boys/girls (or wathever you want), to keep it more organized.

    also, do you think that can help with this?
