This picture makes me think that Doctor Rusty Venture could actually be Doctor Gordon Freeman after a complete psychological break. Or the other way around.

Regardless, nice work!

Absolutely excellent drawing. I run a series on YouTube called "Half-Life Saga" and am shopping along for a new picture for my intro. The previous intro had the picture custom done for it by my friend Michael (AKA Skidd) and was intented for the first Half-Life games. However, upon completing the first games and moving to hl2, I felt that new intro was in order. If I used your picture I would of course give you full credit and link any and all pages you desire in the description of each videos.

Here is an example of what the previous intro was like from an old episode:

The song being used in the new intro will be "Path of Borealis" by Victor Antonov

Anyway great picture and I hope that we can get something mutually beneficial worked out!

Somehow I think he's glowering at his brother John Freeman (if you've seen "Half-Life: Full-Life Consequences", it's hilarious) XD

I'm really loving the shading and the texture also, very gritty looking which matches the game perfectly =)
Excellent work :nod:
Enro Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2009
Ever since Stargate, particularly the SG-1 series, I've always had a thing for bespectacled ridiculously smart, nerdy geniuses who are, in actuality, secretly super hot behind their nerdy glasses. (I'm obviously talking about Daniel Jackson here, but Charles Ofdensen from Metalocalypse also comes to mind.)

I also find it odd that I always like Gordon's eyes whenever I see any official art of him, becuase I have green eyes myself and I find them generally boring, but Gordon's are just beautiful. * 3*

Also, beards rock. My boyfriend has a gotee just like Gordon's, I suspect that's why I like Gordon's so much. XD I like manly men who can grow a full beard. XD

Anyway, I love the determination in Gordon's eyes here. And the sketchy quality gives the image an interesting sense of movement. I have the feeling that he's in the middle of or just finished dispatching a large group of Combine soldiers or Antlions. He looks like all the crap that's been going on around him with the world has been taking its toll on his nerves. Like he's fed up with it all and wants to fix it back to normal as soon as possible.

I can't help but feel that Gordon, if he could express himself to the audience, has some level of guilt in being involved with the incident that brought the world to it's knees in the face of the Combine. Not that he was directly responsible for it, but he did unwittingly take a small part. And also that he may feel anger at Black Mesa being responsible for everything that's happened to the earth and humanity. And also perhaps anger at GMan for forcing him into a stasis and not waking him until the world was already far gone and into seemingly disrepair.
