Nuka-Cola Clear label by Whatpayne Nuka-Cola Clear label by Whatpayne
The Nuka-Cola Clear is a Nuka Cola variation in Fallout 3. The Nuka-Cola Clear was never actually seen in the game, besides in shape of an 'formula', as part of a small quest.

The Nuka-Cola Clear never got into production stage because the bombs fell and production was stopped, along with everything else... However that is not an reason for Fallout fans to stop enjoying the product now is it?


Well after an long wait, I finally got this label done.
And here it is! :boogie:

I would have gone releasing this sooner, but due to studies and exams, I couldn't complete this earlier, as I was otherwise occupied.
The job in the end was pretty straightforward. I used the old label as an base for this one, and went on creating the rest in appropriate manner...
In the end this wasn't all that dificult to do because I wanted to keep the idea behind the name of 'Clear' type. So, there's only a little colours and shapes.
I can't say that this is anything the game developers would have done if they had went on creating the bottle... This is my vision. Or sould I say; this is my vision of how it would look like in the world of Fallout 3. So anyway, enjoy!

Update: Here's a tutorial on how to make these labels, and add them to your bottles: [link]

And don't forget to check out the other Fallout 3 labels:

The classic Nuka-Cola:[link]
Nuka-Cola Quantum:[link]
Nuka-Cola Cherry:[link]
Nuka-Cola old school labels now available. As seen in Fallout 3: [link]

Also, a recreation of a fan-created
Nuka-Cola Fusion: [link]

[The usual disclamers:]
I don't know how many different kind of bottles this would fit. (I used these in capped glass cola bottles that contain 0,35 Liters and are approx 25cm tall.) However you're free to make your own modifications as you see fit.
(Also note that if you are planning to recycle your bottle, in some countries the bottle recycling machines may not accept the bottle due to missing/wrong information eg. the barcode. It works atleast in here where I live, but I doubt that they do in anywhere else.)

Well that's it for now. As always, you are free to use this work where, and however you wish. You also are free to modify this how ever you see appropriate. Just as long as you share alike.

Your labels are brilliant! I was thinking about putting up some of my own, but I see you've already taken all the glory! haha

Question: Which font did you use for the "Clear" part of the label? I'm pretty new to Photoshop/Illustrator, so I can't identify the fonts just by looking at them yet.

That is awesome as hell xDD have you ever been to the nuka cola bottling plant, and read the entry's on nuka cola clear?
Whatpayne Featured By Owner May 28, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Sure have... It was small quest, but fun. :D
Sekrimang Featured By Owner May 28, 2009
:D yup, do you have the broken steel DLC for it?
Whatpayne Featured By Owner May 29, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Nah... not yet. I haven't had the time to buy any points for DL. :'

my only pet peeve is that would prefer these labels say sugar rather than aspartame, and nuka cola CLEAR probably shouldn't have caramel color. I do hope you read these comments, you are awesome and I am extra excited because I found a source of 355ml glass bottles of coke (a hardware store no less). do you know a solvent that will leave the bottle unharmed, bet completely strip the paint/coating from those bottles? it would be hard to have a nuka cola clear bottle if I can't remove the opaque coating that's on the bottle already.

Sure... I'm planning a new Nuka-Cola label line which have as accurate as possible look and feel to them, from game perspective that is. So I'll add new information to the back labels then. ;)
These labels has been more like how I would have done them.

Hmm... I'm afraid that I can't help you with that one. I'm not an expert with paint/coating removal. You could experiment with different paint removal solvents...
abzman2000 Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2009
thanks, the new ones look great, although if you wanted to, a revised edition of these with "ingredients" spelled right, carmel color removed from the clear label, and sugar (my personal preference) would be cool since you decided to make the new labels without ingredients lists. If not, that's cool too, but it's just a thought as I like your re-imagining of these labels. also, I now have 4 coke bottles, two un-opened, and 2 empty (saved the bottlecaps) they are "ice-cold nuka cola" (a chilled one), "nuka cola", "empty nuka cola bottle", and "empty soda bottle". People always ask 'what's the differernce between the "empty nuka cola bottle" and the "empty soda bottle"?' I respond 'I don't know, ask bethesda'

To not add the back labels was a last minute decision. At first I thought of adding them, since I wanted to get them as close as possible to game version I did not add them.
Maby I'll redo the old, 'new' bottles sometime, then yeah, I'll do some fixes. The back label being somewhat same throughout the bottles was just me being lazy. ;P

my friend (also into fallout) had some Methyl Ethyl Ketone (M. E. K.) and it stripped the label and date code right off without damaging the bottle, just a heads up.

Great job as always, although i steered away from decorations altogether myself. I picture the bottle just clear, the label being nothing but the letters spelling out "Nuka Cola Clear".

I like seeing your variation of it, its nice to see differences in artistic views and taste. :dance:
Whatpayne Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks. :D
I decided to add these faint decorations just to give it some more look. At first I did thought of doing the same as you did, but I ventured to a little different direction in the end.
In my eyes I see the glass bottle filled with clear liquid and the label itself would be printed on see-through plastic sheet. So that the colours would be at minimum. (unfortunaetly tho I don't have proper equipment to do that, as for an example...)
