Portal Short Chell Test Render by alexzemke Portal Short Chell Test Render by alexzemke
And here's what's gonna keep me from drawing! I'm working may ass off on a new animated short, based on the Portal games. It's called "Companionship_", and it's a tale of love, loss and cubes.

I needed to see how the assets were coming along, so I threw together this quick pose/lighting test. It really helped get me excited again after a week of character tweaking.

"Sally" character rig and Chell costume modeled by Richard Terry Clark. Character rigged with The Setup Machine by Dustin Kimmich. Additional costume rigging/skinning, asset modeling, etc, by my own exhausted ass.

*Edit: 1,000 faves, baby! Whooo!

And new stuff:

Portal ŠValve

Yep! Or, more accurately, I'm working on it again. A flood of internet coverage over this image a couple years ago resulted in a ton of people wanting to work on it. And I just got wrapped up in all the excitement and did what a lot of people in my line do: I inflated the project way out of proportion until it became unmanageable and collapsed under its own weight. Now I've scaled it all back down to a reasonable length, uncomplicated the production approach, and we're back at it!

Love this! You should submit this to the official Portal design contest on WeLoveFine! contest.welovefine.com/contest… This would make a great art print!

Well thanks! Actually, the render was done at a pretty low resolution as far as prints go, limiting it to about 4 inches high at best. And because the original file no longer exists, I can't re-render it larger :(
But we keep getting closer to finishing the new version of the Chell rig, and the Aperture props and sets are getting textured, so I'm thinking one of the first things we should do with them is recreate this image with all the improved stuff in order to show off the progress :)
