Feast yer eyes! :happybounce: So very happy this came out so well. It was worth all that fussing over the stairs. Those took me the longest. If you look closely at the arrangement at some key details you'll see this illustration tells a story - at least what I imagined happening after some time. 

This will be available as a print in time for and after Metrocon 2015. Make sure to stop by my table and say hi if you'll be attending! If not, you can always keep up with me on dA and Facebook! :heart:

This is so AMAZING! :squee: The gladioli are such a beautiful (and clever) touch! :D (Big Grin)

Thank you!! :D It became my favorite piece to work on for a long time - it's pieces like this that make me love to do art :D

:D (Big Grin) Every now and again, you just find something that flows easily! Even if it isn't easy to do, though, there are some projects that make you love them no matter how hard they are.

Very true. I've found a lot of teachers make you start simple but I've seen amatuers take on a complicated project they're very motivated and dedicated to completing and it comes out fantastic (though I've seen it the other way too). I think if it's something you really, really want to do you'll dedicate the time to do it! :)

Its lovely how well lit this scene is! As well, I notice you are using the GLaDOS's riim from Portal 1. :>
AmaranthineRain's avatar
Thank you! Yes, yes it is - I thought GLaDOS would like to put things back in order and she would revert to some version of this room after Chell left. Thanks for stopping by to comment! :happybounce:

I love how sharp and clean it all is, the colours really are beautiful, and you did such a great job keeping all the machinery crisp and non-organic in sharpness
AmaranthineRain's avatar
Thank you~ I was the most worried about the crispness of the machines actually. It's something I struggle with - but am slowly getting better at.
Sleyf's avatar
I can imagine that, machines are frightening because they have to be perfect in their dimensions and such, you can't get away with a bit of lop-sidedness lol
AmaranthineRain's avatar
Unless you make it a damaged machine....which is not what I was going for lol
Sleyf's avatar
That's true lol

Look like the fight scene in portal 1 but without the flowers

I timeline this picture to after the end of Portal 2 when GLaDOS is putting the room back together. 
FreyaTheFox666's avatar
Oh... But it still looks kinda like the fight scene from portal 1 when I look at it...
