Red Dead Redemption 2 Fan-Art Poster Showcases a Collage Using In-Game Screenshots

Check out this amazing Red Dead Redemption 2 fan-art piece that consists of some of the characters you come across in the game

At this stage, almost every gamer has played Red Dead Redemption 2 or at least has some context on what it entails. October last year was a monumental milestone for Rockstar Games when the western-themed action-adventure title released and to prove this, it ended the calendar year 2018 as the best-selling game and within the last few months, selling  23 million copies. That’s an extortionary accomplishment in such a short space of time, but really is it any wonder when you have a deck-out cast that consists of some wonderful performers.

In tribute to Red Dead Redemption 2’s characters, Reddit user Lu-Iggy has pieced together a collage using a double exposure style while implementing in-game screenshots and promotional images. In the greyscale poster, we clearly see RDR2’s main protagonist Arthur Morgan with the words “We’re thieves in a land that don’t want us no more” etched along the base of his familiar cowboy hat.

You’ll also notice some other recognizable faces embedded in the artwork that includes Sadie Adler, the widow who’s hell-bent on taking revenge – Karen Jones, a consummate scam artist, and trigger woman and what looks to be John Marston and Sean MacGuire getting ready for some shooting action. For added effect, there’s also doves, a tree, a set of deer antlers, and the sheriff’s office thrown in, too. It almost reminds me of the TV show, True Detective.

Its a fantastic work of art that would look amazing framed and in the home of Red Dead Redemption 2 fans. One of the comments in the post pointed out that they were making the poster as their new home screen while another stated that it would make a fantastic tattoo.

If you enjoy the artistic side to RDR2, take a look at Arthur’s journal recreated in real life by yet another creative fan.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is available for PS4 and Xbox One. If you still haven’t picked it up yet, you can check out why DualShockers gave it a 10 in our review of the game. If you would like to get your hands on it, you can order the game through Amazon.
