It's about time I finished something. I'll probably clean up some stuff later, but I'm okay with it being a little messy.

In my opinion, the Striders have always been some of the most cinematic things in the entire Half-Life franchise, and this piece of art is just as cinematic! Beautiful job on this! You make some of the most beautiful Half-Life 2 fan art, I've ever seen!

The striders! Now those were scary monsters. Arguably the scariest creatures in all of Half-Life, in my opinion. I sometimes even have nightmares about them. Good work!

why not Penaltimatum from Ep 1?
Bek359's avatar
Penultimatum's good too, but that's just for one Strider in a boss fight. LG Orbifold is for when you're taking cover in collapsed parking garages and blown-out storefronts between sprints across open ground, trying to minimize the amount of time you're exposed to their fire, because you just don't have enough ammo to take them directly. I like that feel a bit better, especially since it's comparatively easier to make the player feel like a badass going one-on-one against a big baddie.
