Uncharted Fan Recreates Nathan Drake's Journal

Uncharted Fan Recreates Nathan Drake's Journal

From tickets to visas, the real life version of Drake's journal is identical to it's digital counterpart in every way - except for a flower or two.

A poster on Replica Prop Forum called Darth Saber has put together a stunning recreation of Nathan Drake's journal from Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, complete in almost every detail.

The finished product is more than fifty pages long and Saber spent weeks assembling or creating the myriad components. He painstakingly recreated the pencil sketches inside the journal, and got help from the other members of the forum for the parts he couldn't do himself. He gave special credit to a poster called Kredeprops, who had already recreated the final twelve pages of the journal, and allowed Saber to use his files to print out his own versions.

The only thing missing from the journal is the dried flowers, because Saber said he'd spent a month searching in vain for the right ones, and had finally just decided to show it without them. This joins the likes of Harrison Knox's Portal Gun and Bradley W. Lewis' Lightsaber. It's a different kind of craftsmanship, but it's no less impressive.

That is just immense. It must have taken forever to get it just right.

What a failure for not having the flowers. *shakes head in disappointment*

All kidding aside, this is impressive. Maybe Naught Dog should think about selling a replica of the journal.

Wow, that's really impressive. Great attention to detail.

That is pretty awesome, huge props to the guy

Mad props to the guy, that's pretty funky. I'd totally buy one up if Naughty Dog started selling them.

that's awesome I remember seeing that Journal a lot in Uncharted 2. I would love to have one like that in real life.

Oh wow. I really really really really.... REALLY want it!!

Thats just fantastic.

Hey Naughty Dog, I think we have a prop for the next Uncharted's collector's edition.

Logan,

Thanks for the mention and link to the RPF! We have some amazingly talented members and are thrilled to see them getting more recognition around the net!

Someone really has to make an award to "Best Prop Recreation". Some people just don't get the credit they deserve. This is an example.

No thank you for making a cool replica!

NICE.

That is cool. Simple as. Uncharted is awesome, btw....just gotta say.

This is coherent right? I'm pretty drunk right now...

Still Uncharted is awesome...

Nice. Now that's true craftsmanship.

There's much cooler things he could have imitated from Uncharted than the journal...

Well done though.

Let's hope he doesn't lose it in a dangling train car.

A bit off-topic, but I really hope they use Drake's journal more in the next game.

This needs to be in the Collectors edition!

Sweet attention to detail :D

Oh my god! That is impressive..

Yes, it should definitly be in some collectors edition of the game that..

Marik2, I wish I could take credit for that amazing piece, but alas, I just run the RPF. The real talent and credit goes to members like "Darth Saber."

This is very, very impressive.
Seriously, I hope Naughty Dog sees this.
This is beautiful. This is dedication.
This guy should be very proud of himself.

Wow, this is just fucking awesome. I'd totally put a bid on it if he were to sell it on ebay.

This guy must have a lot of patience to create a replica that close to the original with so much detail.

I'm sorry, for some reason your avatar is so incredibly amusing, I've been chuckling to myself for the past 10 minutes :D

OT: Mad props for such a detailed replica, definitely worth at least 3 internets.

I think I saw a video by this guy on youtube a few months back. That, or just someone else recreating the journal.

the scare-o-meter is by far the best part of that journal. sully's moods are pretty good too.

Wow, imagine how much work had to go into this. Impressive dedication.

WANT! WANT! WANT! WANT! WANT! WANT!

I'd buy that....please let me buy that.
