The Reunion by almond-goddess The Reunion by almond-goddess
It's. Finally. DONE. Well, to done to the point that it's appropriate for presentation.

I've been doing a lot of messy drawings lately, and wanted to make something that looked more refined. And I also wanted to do a background. Didn't quite get around to that; after several botched attempts at painting that wheat field, I finally settled for what you're seeing now. Maybe if I'm bored tomorrow I'll get around to fixing that.

I also played around with more subtle color variations and reflective lighting for different surfaces, like Chell's hair and the white metallic parts of CC's outfit. It turned out okay, but again, I think I need to have more contrast in this drawing. I ended up adjusting the levels (again) to fix that problem. It's getting to be a bad habit. Anatomy, especially for Chell, is questionable. At this point I am too tired to go back and fix it though. P:

Well, enough about the technical aspects. I drew this because...well, I wanted to draw something cute rather than morbid for once. And I also wanted to draw the humanized Companion Cube I designed earlier in the week.

So I played Portal 1 recently (loved the game) and I've been doing a little snooping around in Portal fan groups around the net. What is it about the companion cube that people have so much affection for? It's just like all the other cubes except you take it with you for a while. I actually didn't hesitate when I found out that there was no other way to get through that door besides incinerating the cube.
Great picture though! And nice colouring :)

The Companion Cube caught on, at least I think it did, because it is the Companion Cube. There is no real difference between it and the regular cube, other than the fact that there's hearts on its faces. However, GLaDOS puts great emphasis on its importance, and when you play Portal 2, it reappears, which I think might explain some of the fandom. Hope that helped, at least a little.

Nah, the companion cube got popular the way it is now way before portal2. It's just that, with the limited characters in this game(portal1 that is) we started to like it as much as an actual talking character(just like how it was suppose to be for the test subjects).

And also partly due to it becoming a meme.

I think i have a good story of how that happened. After chell escapes GLaDOS she starts to walk around. Then after seeing a oink haired gir with a compainion cube dress she realises it's copanion cube and she hugs her and then everyone lived happily ever after!!!! :D :) :D

The Enrichment Center wants to remind you that the Weighted Companion Cube will never threaten to stab you and, in fact, cannot speak.
Why isn't she charred???
