I Don't Hate You by DeepChrome I Don't Hate You by DeepChrome
I've gotten into Portal something fierce. I'm still stuck somewhere in Level 18, but I can say this...the turrets are so very cute. Especially when they go "I don't blame you" after you've knocked one over and it's dying.

I've seen a few drawings to this effect already on DA, and decided I wanted to do a nice full-color digipainting. This is something of a 15-20 minute speedpaint that went very well for something I just basically slapped together in a fit of Portal-crazed boredom.

Anyways, I died rather close to an active one, and got a very good look at its eye. It's got the red beam coming out of a teeny black pupil amid a red glowing iris. That just screamed for an anime-style "googly-eyed" look. :D

So there you go. Another visual reason to feel bad about hurting a turret.

I've not played portal...but I like this. You feel sorry for the poor thing.

Yep, you do. Especially after you get used to having to get rid of them in various ways in order to survive. After a while it's all "Oh, damn, they're STILL too cute!"

You're a Portal fan! Awesome! I adore that game...best black humor ever.

How are you? I don't frequent the Relic boards these days, despite still being a Homeworld fangirl.

Yeah, doing pretty good here. Just hanging out online.

I gotta get back into playing Portal. Dangit. :D That rotating pellet launcher room on Level 18's a pain, and it's where I got stuck. I'll figure that out soon.

Level 18 is a beast. Oh well -- have fun, you're almost done with the test chambers!

Yes I know. :D That's what keeps me going. I'll probably play some Portal tomorrow, since I got the tree up today. :D

Yeah, just hearing them go "owow" when they get hit or fall into acid is disturbing too.

I rented it and beat it. The turrets almost freaked me out but I laughed when I heard "I don't hate you" after killing one.

Hehe, yeah they're both creepy and cute at the same time. I like their voices. Just something "different" about a mindless shooting automaton that doesn't hate you.

I think they used a child's brain to help that thing think!

Agreed...or at least an AI with the mind of a child.

I have got to get around to reinstalling hl2, and playing this... it's too damn good looking to not play.
