Portal. For science, you monster. by flipation Portal. For science, you monster. by flipation
Having played Portal I wanted to do an illustration to pay tribute to such a great game. The first game didn't featured Chell on the cover, so I wanted to make a drawing that show her. Time passed without having completely developed the idea I had in mind. Portal 2 came out and I thought the day would resume the idea and update it to the new look of Chell.
A few months ago I went to the cinema to watch Oblivion. The style and futuristic designs remind me so much to the game, and Olga Kurylenko was identical to Chell! With such inspiration, I decided to make a simple and effective composition that showed a tough Chell.

I hope you like.


Después de haber jugado Portal quise hacer una ilustración para contribuir a tan gran juego. El primer juego de Portal no presentó a Chell en portada, así que quería hacer un dibujo que la mostrase. El tiempo pasó sin que desarrollase completamente la idea que tenía en mente. Salió Portal 2 y pensé que el día que retomase la idea tendría que actualizar el nuevo look de Chell.
Hace unos meses fui al cine a ver Oblivion. El estilo y los diseños futuristas me recordaron mucho al juego y la protagonista Olga Kurylenko ¡era idéntica a Chell! Con tal inspiración, decidí hacer una composición más simple y efectiva que mostrase a una Chell dura de pelar.

Espero que os guste.

Thank you! That was the intention. Maybe somebody gets inspired to think about it if sees this illustration.
Stunning it truly is, I'd love to make something in a similar style some day. What tools did you use to make this?

Thanks! I used many many references to compose the image and then draw and illustrate in photoshop.

I totally agree with u about Olga Kurylenko she will be a totally perfect Chell, hope that if they ever do a movie of Portal she'll be Chell ♥

Fenomenal, no he jugado a estos videojuegos pero se que hablan muy bien de ellos.
