Haven't used my watercolours in quite a while, and I enjoyed painting this. I'm a little disappointed with how it came out, though.
It didn't scan well at all, the background was originally a pale beige colour, but it got almost completely washed out so I had to add this texture so that it wasn't just empty. I want to re-paint the bg tomorrow or when I get the chance, because using the texture kinda feels like cheating.
Oh and I just felt like making GLaDOS' hair like that - it's not a permanent change. I just wanted her to reflect Caroline better.
Funny you should say that, because I'm toying with the idea of writing a story where the core of GLaDOS is in fact [REDACTED].
Just kidding. Caroline's brain, upper spine, heart and eyeballs suspended in a tank of preservative fluid hooked up to life support machines and a giant super computer neural interface. I keep having this idea of Chell "looking behind the wizard's curtain" and discovering the horrifying, tragic truth behind the monster that is GLaDOS.
That wouldn't explain PotatOS, which was apparently just based off of a tiny circular chip (which I imagine is the central chip of the AI - something like that was probably inside the Cores' bodies too).
I'm pretty sure Cave explained what was done in his last message. They literally mapped Caroline's brain pattern onto some kind of electronic storage media like a musical recording on an flash drive chip. Total digitisation.
Oddly enough, I wonder if Caroline survived the process. There's no automatic reason why it should have been fatal unless they needed to remove the brain and put it in some kind of scanning apparatus (not beyond possibility). However, if it was possible to survive the process the possibility emerges of Caroline/GLaDOS dialogues during the early days of the project before the first Neurotoxin Release Incident.
Aha, but what if the tiny circular chip was merely a wireless transmitter connection to the hidden brain core? Aha!
Cave mentions his intention to map Caroline's brain into a computer, but he never specifically states that it worked that way. What if they failed in that attempt and had to resort to more "drastic measures"
I just love how you draw women. >///< It's fun looking at the faces (the lips and eyes are awesome). I wanted to ask what kind of paper you used for this but then I read that you used a texture. Also lovely shading, most of all GLaDOS' hair
This is amazing! (I didn't even know one could actually paint well with watercolors XD) Caroline looks so warm and wholesome and beautiful, even more so beside her cold counterpart. You did an excellent job with this piece
That is just too amazing... like... I don't know whether to be ecstatic because of how awesome it is... or angry because I'm so unbelievably jealous of your abilities... haha you're just too awesome for your own good~ that's what it is! happy Valentine's day by the way!
-facepalm- I forgot to put down what I thought about the picture, sorry.
What I like about this piece is that even thought GLaDOS looks a little different from your normal depiction of her, her reflecting Caroline works. That said, GLaDOS still looks distinctly how you normally depict her, only slightly altered. The same but different... does that even make sense? Sorry. I like the dark background contrast to their bodies and the watercolor effect.
I'm really speechless with this one!! I caught over on Tumblr a little while ago, it really did make my afternoon to see this. Everything about this is beautiful, the skin tones, how both GLaDOS' hair and Caroline's looks, Goodness girl, lend me some of your skills over the interwebs LOL <3
This is so pretty! I love their expressions and the poses and also the feelings I get when looking at it. I bet everyone gets a different feeling! The colors are nice, dark and somewhat moody. Very nice!
I don't want to sound like a pervert but I also like how GLaDOS's butt came out. DX
