You're like marbles on glass by Serain You're like marbles on glass by Serain
[link] <- Exile Vilify by The National, hit this up - it's what the entire image is about! It's the song that plays on the radio chell is listening to, in a secret area in the game.

Alright, got some portal 2 art up in here. Best game. Best area (it's stylized, but if I wanted complete accuracy I would have taken a screenshot, yeah?)

Definitely draws inspiration from portal 2 concept art and of course, my bro *Calick's interpretation.

~15 hours, photoshop

wow. i just love this. there is somthing about this that just make me want to stare at it forever. The texture of the painting the atmosphere.... just everything is set so well. The lighting also adds to the whole scene. And chell, her pose, her expression. Its like a little peice of normal, the music i guess. im sure if youve been traped in an experiment youd love to hear a bit of music.

When I found that radio I was like 8D~

And in one of the test chambers you can find a radio which plays the Still Alive song, like the one in the first game.

This is beautiful, not even kidding. I'm listening to The National right now and it led me to search the title and... wow! And seeing your process is riveting. You've got a great designer's mind, friend.

Portal 2 is a great game: this song suits it perfectly in those cavernous ruins of Aperture Science. You really captured those feelings well.

Keep up the fantastic work. :)
