A fan has made a real-life, hard copy of Arthur Morgan's trusty journal from Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption 2.
The open-world game, which launched last year, is quite vast and there are endless discoveries to be made as one rides through the wild west. And, while RDR2 has been out since October, there's still so much to find out.
Rockstar's engaging narrative comes as another huge plus for this title and you don't get too deep into the game without meeting Arthur's journal. The outlawed cowboy is in love with the book and often scribbles in details and drawings as he traverses through the world. The feature has apparently rubbed a fan the right way, prompting him to make his own and get pictures of it out there so we can marvel at the wonderful work.
JamesMonkey has really recreated the Arthur Morgan journal with drawings and cursive handwriting all in there.
James' work has understandably left fans on Reddit very impressed and some are ready to pay him to have journals of their own. Of course, selling such a creation is likely to receive some form of backlash from Rockstar, but you never know.
The studio could realize how good an idea this is and hand good old James a deal, but they could also just make their own journals and sell them.
In case you're wondering whether he drew the images in himself, he's revealed that he did not, although he tried at first.
"Currently making a replica journal from the game. All images were obtained from in game and in the app," he posted. "I did attempt to draw my own but this was time consuming and just didn’t feel like Arthur’s. My aim is to have inserts in the form of photographs and letters throughout where Arthur finds them."
Red Dead Redemption 2's release has proven to be a success. The game is available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and could be coming to the Nintendo Switch (unless that was an April Fools' thing). It was recently on sale for $40 for PS Plus subscribers and $46 for PS4 users not subscribed to the service.
