Was it worth it? by TwinklePowderySnow Was it worth it? by TwinklePowderySnow
Decided to have a go at drawing a concept for Portal 1 GLaDOS. I Tried to give her a slightly more insane look, and the cores are fixed right by her head for maximum annoyance (She is in her chair, btw, which is what the cores are attached to, I just got lazy). She is also more restricted by the strap things that hold her in the chair. :>

This one's quite old, actually, I just didn't get round to uploading it. ^^'' I know her shoulders are off... shoulders are always something I have trouble drawing. Along with necks, and men. XD

Anyway, I hope you like this! It's done with markers, if anyone was wondering. And you know the drill, download for fullview. c:

Texture: [link] This is my new favourite texture 8D

Those straps put me in mind of a straight-jacket...

Hehe, where would I be without my Portal Crazed Twinkle? :giggle: Anwyways hun, awesome work. The shoulders aren't really that bad and actually make her looks like she is somewhat arching her back a bit. ^^

I love how you drew GLaDOS here! I can perfectly see her having this expression if she had a humanoid form. :)

I wonder, how did you apply the texture on this drawing? Did you use SAI or Photoshop for this?

Oh my, I wish I could give personalities to my drawings like you can :( This is amazing, but I still love Portal 2 Gladys the best ;)

She looks way more sinister, more crazy. And the shoulders manage to symbolize the insanity of Portal 1 GLaDOS more.

Love it! It's a sort of militant portrayal like I tend to think of GLaDOS, especially in the first game. She's got this professionalism, but then there's the not-so-subtle death wishes. And of course, who can forget her totally manic mood swings.

Crazy good! Your anthropomorphism of GLaDOS is probably my favorite. :D

Oh nice. I get a sense of her definitely being more trapped, more frustrated, and more zombie-like in this one. The colors are great here as well. :D

nice one ^^
and the shoulders aren't bad ^^

i don't want to sound picky or like a dumb critic, but the left eye plate thing looks more like Portal 2's GLaDOS version and her head in portal looked kinda different.
But the mix of both designs is good and I like her Portal 2 design better anyways xD

Well, the cores WERE part of her brain, so it makes sense. I love this concept! She looks noticeably different from Portal2!GlaDOS. More insane, due to her having turned hostile not as long ago. More emotionless, too!

And don't worry, I have trouble with shoulders and necks too :x But you pull it off well!
