A Turret Personified v2 by DeepChrome A Turret Personified v2 by DeepChrome
Some of you might remember (or see in my gallery) that old "A Turret Personified" piece, from when I got Portal-happy the first time around.

I don't have Portal 2 yet, I want it and am waiting till the price comes down a little on Steam to get it, and I'm on a Portal bent tonight.

So....the personified Turret is revisited, and somewhat upgraded in my improved skills. I wanted to do expressions on her the last time around, and just never got around to it. So, I decided to do that this time.

There's a bit of Homestuck-esque skin shading on them, but my thinking was since the Turrets were basically all-white, I might as well make their humanizations quite pale.

Anyways, enjoy.

About 2-3 hours in Photoshop CS3, mostly due to lineart cleanup and time spent cleaning up shading. Heh.

Portal and the Turrets are copyright Valve.

Maybe this time I'll get around to trying a GLaDOS-tan....maybe...

why does the bottom right one look unnervingly like Azula in Avatar?

Hmm she kinda does. Not that I've seen Avatar - most of what I know is from fandom osmosis off Avatar fans on Tumblr.

I'm not sure but I think they might've already gotten it along with some of my other art. :) Thanks for suggesting it though.

those turrets are so creepy....

Yeah, especially when you first run into them after a whole pile of quiet test chambers. Portal itself is mostly a calm game....until you hit that first test chamber with the turrets. Eesh. Heh.

I like 'em though. They're kinda adorable in their own crazy way.

ok, of all of the portal characters (from one and two) who do you rank from least creepy to most creepy?

:icondeepchrome:
DeepChrome Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Least creepy: Companion Cube.
Most creepy: ....hmmm...used to be GLaDOS, but now I'm not so sure. Wheatley nowadays actually - started out nice and adorable, and all helpful, and then turns to the dark side. Plus, I can't stand stupidity, and he's the extreme of it.

My goodness, I love Portal. ^^ It's so much fun designing human counterparts to the machines and such. XD My friends did it too when we first played Portal.

Your turret is really pretty. :3 Very fitting to the design. I love the psychotic look of the one about to fire. XD And the fact that she's wearing a helmet. It's such a nice design. :3

Maaaan, you will looooove Portal 2. I got to finally play it yesterday. X3 Story is soooo good.

Thank you. I like the idea of the turrets as crazy girls, but they needed some of the robot in them to keep the turret part intact. I think the original turret-tan (You'll have to go back a bit in my gallery, but it's there) was inspired by a picture of Portal Chibis, where the turret Chibi was in a smock, with a hood, holding two smoking guns up and going "Are you still there?"

(I turned the grinning one into a forum avatar at one forums I go to, and my AIM messenger icon as well. Might do it for my DA, too. We'll see.)

Maybe, just maybe I'll take a crack at a GLaDOS personification. I can't stand the Vocaloid-style versions, and core-pigtails just don't work. There's one or two that look really good, and I like those styles, but I feel like I could probably do something, especially involving the dynamic between her and Chell.

<cough>totallyakismesis<coughHACK>

As for Portal 2, I've had a friend telling me story tidbits here and there, it does sound good. I've some time off, so I plan on getting some Portal replay time in, while waiting for P2 to come down a little in price.

But man, thanks to some of the YouTubes, I am never looking at a potato battery in quite the same way anymore. Ahahaha.

:D

(I couldn't resist: after hearing about the Cave Johnson Lemon Rant, I found it on YouTube. My word, GLaDOS, that voice could send a mind down the gutter there... XD)

Mm. The problem with GLaDOS personifications is that she's such an iconic character that trying to make a human variant of her is hard. No one is going to agree on the same look for her, and so everyone is going to disagree. But when you get a really good personification, that's just pure love, man. <3 I adore GLaDOS.

Oooo, be careful about letting your friend tell you things about it. There are some /serious/ spoiler /landmines/ in that game.

Heh. :D I'll be fine. :3

And yeah I agree, most of the personifications don't do it for me, but there's a scant few that do:

this: [link] (The artist went so far as to cosplay as her version; it's my favorite GLaDOS cosplay, period.)

and this: (same person as the artist above) [link] I think she's the only cosplayer I've seen who could work the attitude.

I think I'll be more apathetic to turrets if they're humanoid robots rather than cute little machines. Then again... ;)

Heh. Yeah the idea was to just personify them. They don't replace the turrets in the game. But I did try to make them as cute. (More than likely the actual machines are cuter, but it's worth a try....)

Thanks. :)
