Companion Cube RatMan Painting by TimTheScarecrow Companion Cube RatMan Painting by TimTheScarecrow
Painted this on my bedroom wall with a toothbrush and can of pink spray paint.
Inspired by an image found in the first Portal game by Valve
-
EDIT (2017): Holy cow this picture got more popular than I expected! First I'd like to thank people for loving it so much, it means a lot to be recognized by the Portal fan community. I've seen two separate strangers get tattoos of the Companion Cube inspired by THIS painting and that's crazy cool!
See, the best part is... the guys who got the tattoos, and the artists who gave them the tats all gave me original artist credit for the design. This leads to the negative point im gonna have to make... ive also seen A LOT MORE people stealing this, reposting, what-have-you...
And its a really big face palm for me cuz its just a fan art, you'd figure people would do fan art on their own and not copy or steal some one elses ...FAN ART... Come on guys! Show the community what YOU have! Not what you can copy and paste!
I reported an "artist" on redbubble for selling this picture on shirts and stickers just the other day. I didn't care that he was selling MY design, fuck it, its fan art... I cared that he was claiming that HE was the one who painted it, now that's some bullshit I wont put up with.
If you're gonna steal this, and resell it, knock yourself out. You're a turd but I cant stop you, its the internet... all I ask is that you give me original artist credit. That's it.
Also noticed a few other pictures here on dA that copied this design and aren't giving me original artist credit, dafuq guys?
Im not into reporting people, not even when they may have just traced or photoshopped my original picture a bit... but im gonna have to draw the line somewhere.
A simple "original design by TimTheScarecrow" or "inspired by the painting by TimTheScarecrow" or something to that general effect would be greatly appreciated!

This is on your bedroom wall? I wish I could do that!! : ) : ) : ) Is all that freehand? If so, great work with the lettering.
How big is it painted?

yeah, except that was at my moms house, and now that ive got my own place thats my sister's bedroom wall now. :/
But yeah no stencils or anything like that.
And... to put it this way, theres a 3 seated couch underneath it, and its still wider than the couch is. the height is from about 3 feet from the ground to about a foot from the celieng.
