Red Dead Redemption 2 Fan Turns Protagonist Arthur Morgan Into a Woman

An RDR2 aficionado has decided Arthur Morgan was in need of a little makeover and has changed him into the female version that’s just as badass.

Its almost been three years since Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 was released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and since then, many new features have been added to its popular gunslinging online service. The game’s protagonist, Arthur Morgan, soon became one of video games most loved characters due to his sarcastic tone, cynical outlook and the ability to handle any bar fight thrown at him.

Of course, we’d personally never want to change the diamond in the rough but one fan wanted to see how the stereotypical “manly man” outlaw would look like if he adopted a more feminine outlook on his appearance.

Reddit user Duplica1t has created a really interesting piece of art showcasing what Arthur could look like as a woman and honestly, he looks amazing. In the side by side photo of Arthur and his female self, you can notice how Arthur’s trademark scars and stubble has been etched out and replaced with much smoother skin that hasn’t been tainted by the harsh weather while out in the wilds on horseback.

You’ll also see that his trademark mole still makes an appearance along with that strong jawline but with a lot more freckles, eye makeup and some brow maintenance. The Reddit post is only a couple of days old but has already received over 6k upvotes so it’s clear that Arthur’s female touch-up is a hit. Naturally, he has nothing on the real badass of RDR2 and that’s Sadie Adler but I guess there’s no harm in trying!
