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.

You need to draw "the one free woman" and "The G-man is a lie".

(Wonderful work!)

Cheerio,

You made Chell's skin a little to dark. Only a little bit though.

You know what with the amazing Doctor Who comic and your fantastic art skills in general, I didn't think I could love you any more than I did.

I was wrong.

The lines are distractingly thick around the sleeves to the jumper tied around her waist. That's just where my eyes go when i look at her D: To be a nit picky and annoying bastard, i would suggest curving the 'aperture science' logo on her t-shirt to follow the curve of her boob a tiny bit near the end of the word.

What I do like is everything else, pretty much is the pose, the expression and the well set out background. The pose indicates she's prepared for anything, it's dynamic, it's aethetically pleasing and it works very well with the composition. The expression plays with the humour/serious business element of the game, which I'm saying is well selected and well crafted, since she seems completely crazy and silly, but she's totally serious at the same time. Good job. And the BACKGROUND. You have so many objects and ideas all at once, all co-ordinated into this simple background. Hang on, let me count: something like 10-15 objects (if you count Chell and the companion cube and the gun and the shoes and the--) into this one bg. So OMFG welldone of a well composed piece-- nothing's too distracting from the main focus and nothings disappearing aimlessly.

There is just something about how you do eyes that I love. They always have this look like they are crazy and yet completely serious at the same time.

I never play Portal but I watch my brother play it all the time.

This is a fantastic drawing! Everything is super-detailed but it's totally recognizable as your style!

Very well done. I love Chell's expression. And you did a great job on the detail with the gun, companion cube, and Chell's clothes.

Also, loved the background. OMGWHEATLEY!!! And GlaDos! And I think those are turret laser sights there as well! Honestly, I would have missed it if I didn't look back at it again.

Very cool, even if her expression is kinda... weird. But, um, the portal gun's handle is in the back, not on the bottom. Just saying.

The background is awesome, I wasn't sure what it was at first till I enlarged it to grab a better look but it was all those vacuum tubes! Love the paranoid/determined look on chell's face as well and the pose is really dynamic.

Now here's my question to you. In your description after you say that you were looking at her ref pics for a few hours... who came to mind on who she was connected to because I am curious. :3

Aside from saying Chell's stance is great and completely kick-ass, I just have to say well done on the boots.
Seriously, it always seems like shoes and feet present a lot of problems, whether it be in their proportion or design, but yours are great. They actually look really well proportioned and... well, like functional boots. :)
