The Cake is a LIE - Portal 2 by Girl-on-the-Moon The Cake is a LIE - Portal 2 by Girl-on-the-Moon
Well, WHO WOULD HAVE EXPECTED THIS immediately after some Half-Life fanart? Portal was the first Valve game I played, and it was really love at first zot. Cannot express my appreciation for this game's attention to detail, story, humour, and really fun and original problem solving.

OH SWEET LORD THIS TOOK FOREVER. About seven or eight hours of work in Photoshop. Whew. Agh. Hand.... Guh. But so worth it.

Print available through my Society6 shop.

Haha, I love how you draw those eyes. They are so simple, yet awesome. The background is beautiful! I'm so bad in that kinda stuff :P

I love that manic look in her eyes!

Chell, ready for action, with her trusty portal gun, long fall boots, and her faithful companion cube! Some idiot shouldn't have told her the cake was a lie.

Oops spoilers over here y'allShe's all but confirmed as GLaDOS's daughter, not as a character from Half-Life. Not that I've ever played Half-Life, just kinda buried myself in the Portal Wiki forever and ever

Now that that's out of the way >.>

The format of this rocks! The assembly lines/transport chutes in the background are a nice touch, especially with the variation in tone and the things filling them. The little Wheatley in the tube with the Cubes made me giggle a little, especially because the contrast of the blue in his eye and the greyscale of the rest makes him look all the more disgruntled. Other than that, Chell's expression is so intense, almost a little scary... which just suits our silent protagonist so well! The only thing I can think is that I'm pretty sure the Gun comes up over her arm, a la Samus's gun in the Metroid heries, but I'm not sure on that. Plus she looks a lot more badass holding it like that n-n
