This is my first design to be picked up by a daily shirt site. Ironically it is the one I spent the least amount of time on. I was shooting around ideas with my buddies one day while having lunch. I had recently started a new character in Fallout: New Vegas and was talking about how terribly I had set up the character and was getting beat up by cazadors. We then started with ideas for Fallout themed shirts. We had seen a lot of Monty Python themed shirts as of late, and then it hit me. I've always thought about the Black Knight when one of my limbs is crippled in Fallout and you keep on fighting, most likely because you found some rare item and don't want to lose it by dying. "Tis but a scratch."
|Original Crude Sketch|
When I pitched the idea, my friends said absolutley! I have to give props to fellow artist and friend, Ben Smith aka The Bensanity. He helped prod my mind to get this idea out.
After I got the sketch out, I got it into illustrator and did my thing. I also found a screen shot of the actual pipboy to mimic the status screen. There are also several easter eggs hidden within the status screen. Normally on a pipboy screen you will find your S.P.E.C.I.A.L, but to keep away from copyright issues, and to tie it in more with Monty Python and the Holy Grail, I changed it to I.N.V.I.N.V.I.N.C.I.B.L.E. Also changed RADs to NI! and the experience points are actually dates, 1975 when The Holy Grail was released, and 2012 when this shirt was printed.
This shirt will be available for $12 plus free shipping Tuesday July 10 only. After Tuesday, it will be $15 and only for a limited time.
