Her name is Caroline. by xPine Her name is Caroline. by xPine
edit: [link] SPEEEDPAAINNTT yay

This is the closest to real vent art that I'll ever do.

From having a horrible range of emotions week to seeing the ending of this game and bawling for several reasons, I'm determined to do fanart. I have a drawing with Chell I'm almost done with (but is crap) but this takes the cake. I just kind of...realized the significance of a few things in this game. I am not gonna put spoilers in my artists comments for the fact that I know people who haven't played the game will see this. But this just... spawned. My emotions made scribbly painting like drawing. I'm relatively happy the way I did GLaDOS though, she's scribbly but in a relatively good way the way I look at it.

I'm sure some people can get what this is about but it's open to interpretation... but yeah. I listened to [link] the whole time, and in a way it could be based on that.

Not sure if I like it or not to be honest. I wish I planned it out more. I may change it a bit later with a speedpaint and touching up some things.

The first time Caroline saw the GLaDOS chassis in its cathederal-like chamber, she realised that all those naysayers through the decades had been right: Cave was mad and it looked like that, before the end, his madness would consume her too.

So lovely! But I have to ask; is the woman in this picture Chell or Caroline?

It was supposed to be Chell, but honestly, go with your imagination!

I actually did think that the woman in the doorway was Caroline for a second... after reading the comments I know it's not the case...

It's a good drawing, I love the shading. Nice.

I can safely say I meant that to be Chell, but it's all open to interpretation. But thank you!

Pine, why is this so awesome? =/ I'm serious, draw vent art more often. xD

But really, I like how it's all dark and mysterious - it really sets a interesting mood right away. And you drew GLaDOS really well. I can imagine all that machinery would be difficult to draw. At least for me, anyway.

I think I was more venting my emotions tied to the games lolol

And it's funny, because I tried doing GLaDOS the other day and couldn't do it for my life. This one just kind of...erupted from many many references. In my speedpaint I didn't record the sketching outline of GLaDOS because I had way too many references up on my screen. This isn't that accurate to actually what she looks like but it's something. And when I color you can see in the speedpaint I keep going back through the wiki looking for the right pictures xD Otherwise, the mood is okay, I just wish I planned the picture out better to include more.

Wow, this is some truely amazing portal art. Sure, some is funny, some is creative, but not much is serious and can be good at the same time. This is very good. Love all your details. Is it wierd I feel like it would be cool if this was Caroline looking at a non active GLaDOS, preparing to become her? That's just me. GREAT job!

Haha, that's a great idea! The person in this comic is Chell, and she's supposed to represent "coming back" in a way, while the photograph is supposed to be the one with Cave Johnson and Caroline in it. I didn't know what I was playing with but I just messed with it a bit. But thank you very much!
