Prepare for the morning

The best part of waking up… is Vault Boy in your cup!

A couple weeks back I caught this Kotaku post showcasing 3D Latte Art from Kazuki Yamamoto. Thoroughly impressed, I jokingly tweeted from @Fallout that we’d love to see a Vault Boy version.

Thanks Kazuki!

However, I started to get a little excited about it, and I wanted to see results before I had even started.  So, to satisfy the little part of me that just wanted to know what it would look like. I quickly made up a few desert textures and applied them to the tundra area. I then launched the game, turned the grass off and what I saw surprised me.
