Half-Life - Guilt - Redux by Quinn-G Half-Life - Guilt - Redux by Quinn-G

Yep, I've revamped my popular Half-Life - Guilt deviation. The more I looked at the original piece, the more I thought "Damn, the outlines and shading are awful. :omg:" So, here we are. I've corrected the outlines in Illustrator, added some more wrinkles on Gordon's face to harden his traits some more and NOW I'm thoroughly happy with it. :dummy:

The main differences are that the G-Man's skin tone is paler and the test chamber screenshot is bigger. And since I'm such a sadistic prick, I've hurt Gordon! :evillaugh: Where the marks are from? It could be anything Gordon is unwillingly used to face: a headcrab's teeth, a vicious Zombie's slashes, speeding bullets, flying debris, explosions... well, you got the picture.

This art style reminds me of the Genndy Tartakovsky Star Wars: Clone Wars miniseries.

This is what I hate most in Half Life . That Gordon is yet another silent protagonist . I mean , Gordon is one of my most favorite gaming heroes ever and one of those characters . The level of his badass measure is over 900000 since he managed to survive Black Mesa , Xen , destroy Citadel and put an end to Combine occupation of Earth ( assuming they will reach the Borealis first ) and he was not a typical hero for those times . HE was just a nerdy scientist compared to Duke Nukem , Doomguy , Blaskowitz . But maybe because of that we respect him so much . But what I want to see how does he feel . I mean no one  meany to cause this disaster but still it was he who pushed that crystal . And that disaster took lives not just in BM but in whole Earth and Xen . This pic in my eyes perfectly describes how can he feel that it all started because of that crystal . But still there are many people like me  who believe in Gordon that he will make things right and I am more than sure he CAN AND WILL make things right . We are with you Gordon :)

that's awesome too! Did you do the whole background or is it some stock image? D: 
Quinn-G Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Back then, it was a WIP screenshot from the now-released Half-Life 2 mod Black Mesa that I modified to give it a sort of comic book feel, but I drew both characters. :D

Though the comment is appreciated, I urge you to look at my more recent works. They're a damn sight better drawn than my earlier works like this one.

oooh cool!

i will do that! :3

Why does looking at the way Freeman is drawn here makes me think Half-Life should be an animated series on Adult Swim or MTV?

Well, all he did was push in the cart. G-Man was the one who arranged that specific crystal to be pushed in.

Doomspeed Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
I love this picture! Since we never get to hear Gordon talk; I've always wondered if he ever felt any sort of guilt for causing the BM Incident. Sure it wasn't fully his fault, but I would feel pretty darn bad for pushing that cart in and screwing over the entire human race. Great pic bro

Great piece. You should would make great promotional image designer! This is a great improvement over the initial version!

wasn't exactly his fault, he just pushed it in, it was ultimately breens fault.

i like this. especially since most people only makes jokes about Freeman.
Freemans mind on you tube for example. but this feels more realistic.
