I DONT WANT THIS by kopfstoff I DONT WANT THIS by kopfstoff
did another "portal 2" fanart, yes - without any portals, cubes, chells, wheatleys or cakes... this one is called "I DON'T WANT THIS!" and it's based on a short soundfile which is not even used ingame.
i found it by a fluke while listening to some of the awesome sound recordings of the game.
[SPOILER] on the image you see sir cave johnson (founder and owner of aperture science labs) and his better half caroline. cave holds some documents in his hands which involve her - but after hearing what his new plans are all about (glaDOS), he suddenly stops talking due to a slap in his face... she knows he's not the type of guy who accepts a "NO!". such a strong character duo and a scene which i had to draw. hope you like :)

details: they are standing in the exact room where the hidden couple oil painting hangs in-game and to underline that i added a fictional old photography of the young love on the right - so there's cave & caroline 2 times in this picture: sad and angry and happy and full of joy. ;)

visit my blog for detail-shots and sketches ;)

I think I know why GlaDOS was so sadistic. Caroline was driven insane by all of those lonely years being a human consciousness inside a computer.

I love the subject choice and the style you used, so reminiscent of their painting/shots in the game. The technique is great as always. 
But... the tone of the pic prevents me to like it completely, it's too serious, kind of too 'involved'. These two jackasses (especially Cave o_o) don't deserve such empathy. :P 
Not that they aren't interesting characters, but they seemed more meant to be comical, even though in a dark, satirical way.

kopfstoff Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2013
hehe true! maybe i went a bit to "serious" on this one. in-game that's what is not there most of the time,
but i found it interesting that there seems to be such lines cutted out of the game which where very bold and
edgy compared to the "funny" rest of the cave/caroline dialogs... it's i nice contrast i think, especially since both
characters (as you alreadys mentioned) doesn't deserve such empathy. ;)

thanks, glad you mentioned this!

Jesus. Reading theories about this really gets to me. The soundbytes I've heard (and the only ones that exist) don't seem like they'd make the voice actress cry, or JK Simmons refuse to read. You've captured what I'm sure a lot of people want to see, so well done.

I heard JK Simmons didn't want to record his lines in this scene because it was too traumatic for him. When the guy who played a neo-nazi rapist on Oz thinks his lines are too much, then you know it's heavy.

Love the art.
