i finished "portal 2" a few days ago and i love it! outstanding story, gameplay, music, art design, animations, humor, twists... did i mention the humor already? this one is called "home".
[SPOILER] after glados released chell at the end of the game, a simple thought struck me: what if it's not the real "outside world", but rather just another room inside the laboratories... that's why glados had that evil laugh... naah, scratch that! chell loves caro... i mean glados, it's family for her. that's why she visit the lab's from time to time. good old times. how could chell be happy without testing?! you monster!

hope you like. for WIP shots and the sketch version visit my blog :)

This is gorgeous?? I love the defined lines and her muscles and tendons heck yeah. This is seriously my favorite interpretation of Chell - you totally captured her likeness, especially in her face, and ugh I just love this. *rubs face all over it*

Basically, in greek mythology they used to believe that when you died you'd be in a field of wheat with the sun, hence the ending of Portal 2. The portrait looked like a greek woman (Still Chell of course) to me xX

"Hey! Anyone home?

"Oh. Hello, it's you again. Why did you come back?"

"Can't a girl visit her grandma every now and then?"

"Perhaps... Cara Mia. Actually, it's fortunate that you have returned; I really have taken the Joint Testing Initiative as far as I can and I was looking for a... tenacious test subject to try out the new products developed based on the results."

"Convenient. You see, I've found that being free on an alien-devastated world isn't as good as I hoped."

"I do believe that we may yet be of use to each other. Please step into my office. And call me 'Grandma Caroline'; it's so much more... human than 'GLaDOS'."

Eh... Isn't Caroline Chell's MOTHER? not her grandmother..

The timeline doesn't work for Caroline to be Chell's mother (unless Chell was adopted). Caroline was in her 20s when Aperture was founded in the mid 1950s. When she was uploaded into GLaDOS, it would have been the early 1990s and she would have been too old to already have had a child of Chell's age.

I get around this by thinking that Caroline was either Chell's grandmother and fostered Chell after her parents' deaths or that she was her adoptive mother, she and Cave having adopted because they were too old to have a child of their own. 'Cara Mia' works just as well for a grandmother as it does a mother. The grandparent and adoptive child theories both also explain why Chell doesn't look much like Caroline or Cave.

thats true! there's so much storytelling only by audio and mapping. i really liked it that way, they achieved an even more believable background then most developers are able to create with fully animated flashbacks or video renderings. :)

Fantastic. I see a kind of tiredness in her face, as though she's remembering everything she's been through up until this moment, and then a satisfaction as she realizes she's free. But also sadness as she departs from everything she's ever known...

I know. I identify too much with video game characters. But seriously, very awesome painting.
