Red Dead Redemption 2 Arthur’s Journal Is Recreated in Real Life by Fan
An artistic fan of Red Dead Redemption 2 has brought to life Arthur's Journal in the most authentic and detailed way possible with amazing results
It goes without saying that Red Dead Redemption 2 was a monumental title for Rockstar Games. It took players on a crazy ride with its deep and compelling narrative that spread out over its vastly animated map – even today players are still finding things out about the game as they go off exploring. Over on Reddit, one user found out that if you kill rats in the city of Saint-Denis, your honor will increase. It’s the smallest attention to details like this that makes Red Dead Redemption 2 push the bar for open-world titles.
Something else that you may have noticed while playing RDR2 is that Arthur enjoys nothing more than getting his journal out to scribble down lots of little details and drawings as he makes his way around the wild west and this artistic approach by the rugged cowboy has inspired another creative mind to recreate Arthur’s journal in real life with excellent results.
JamesyMonkey has lovingly put together a recreation of Arthur’s in-game Journal and brought it out into the world for us all to witness – and also probably wish we had thought of it first. Jamesy has kept the original drawings and old-time cursive intact which must have taken him quite some time to obtain it all to the highest degree that it’s done in.
The replica has been a talking point in the Red Dead community sites like Reddit with fans of the title wanting to get their hands on it and asking Jamesy to try and produce copies to sell as fans would eat it up. This, of course, could bring in some issues from Rockstar, but maybe we could see the studio decide to do something along the lines of getting this into mass production – this would be an amazing collection piece for players who love Red Dead Redemption 2.
