I’ve been working on making a character that fits into the Fallout Universe lately. For a couple of reasons. I’ve been playing through Fallout 4 with my husband recently.
We originally picked the game up around it’s release date, but something then didn’t click with us. I’m not sure what exactly, but I don’t think we found the construction aspect to the game right for us back then. But I think we we’re playing Minecraft at the time and wanted to make things pretty; which Fallout really isn’t.
Since we’ve not been playing Minecraft and we know what to expect this time around we have been a lot less picky with the construction side of things.
During the course of playing and seeing a couple of online friends own Fallout OC’s for the past few years, I decided to take the plunge and make one for myself to enjoy.
When making an OC for a game in which you can create your the main character to your liking, I think people tend to use the main character as their OC. I didn’t want to do this, because they already have a set back story. So. I created Simon. A narcotic/Jet addicted saxophone player (with no sax) so he’s had to turn to the wastelands to feed his habit, as I think this idea out of the ones I had, has the most scope for long term character development.
Have a Simon~
I’ll get a full body picture of him done soon.
For his outfit, I am thinking hipster style, waistcoat, rolled up shirt sleeves, converse style shoes and jeans. Purely because it has no practical use in the commonwealth and I think Simon would have sold everything useful already – like his Saxophone, which I imagine a part of him is really trying to get back or something? I don’t know yet.
It’s just nice to have a character I’d like to develop and play with some more.
