    I have been in the industry for 16 years in total.
    In that time at Bethesda I've shipped Fallout 3, F3: The Pitt as Lead Artist, F3: Point Lookout as Lead Artist, Skyrim, Fallout 4 and Fallout 76 as Lead Artist."
  3. Nate Purkeypile on Twitter: "Various settlements I have made on the Fallout series over time. / Also, to clarify, I did the layout, lighting and cluttering. So not just the world art side of things. I enjoy thinking about how a city is laid out and functions. Designers handled the actual NPCs, quests and dialogue."
