Tenacity Core by basalt Tenacity Core by basalt
Man I tried you guys, I was gonna give this Portal thing a rest, I really was. But then the 3rd volume of the OST came out today and the DLC comes out next Wednesday and I just.. I can't resist the siren caaaaaall.....
Anywho, while listening to the soundtrack the line “It’s such a shame the same will never happen to you” in Want You Gone made me think: Chell would’ve made an awesome core. Think how useful she’d have been!
STOIC DETERMINATION CORE
GLaDOS really dropped the ball on this one.

First thing:
Throw GLaDOS's body down the incinerator.

OH MY GOSH! She would be an epic core.

And I the picture makes her look awesome!

Now I kinda want to read a fanfiction where she's a core.

Awesome idea- although I think GLaDOS wouldn't like sharing the mainframe =P

Oh gosh every time I see this picture, Chell's eyes bore deep into my soul. My word. This is just amazing, I love your style of drawing and painting. I can't put my finger on it. It's just so raw and real. Fantastic work. :L

Portal! I really like the details, that little dotty brush is cool. If you don't mind me asking, did you make the brush or downloaded it? I'm looking for something similar, so I'm curious.

I like it. But I think her Core would've had blue or blue-gray colored optics isntead.

But I love how you depict her as an android. Very nice, and suits her character well. :D

I thought about making it blue-grey! But in the end I can't help but associate her with the color orange because of that jumpsuit. And for the sake of this little illustration I liked the blue/orange color combo :)

I think GLaDOS was going to make a personality core based off of Chell, but of course she deleted it. "Don't believe? Here, I'll put you on." When playing through portal 2 I wondered if I would run into an empty personality sphere that had Chell's name on it.

EPIC ART!!!!

I always wonder, of GLaDOS can properly work on the energy of a potato... she could very well use a human as a batery and "make some new desasters" herself on the world.
