Wheatley and Chell belong to Valve. Altley is mine.
I should be working on the next chapter, but this image has been knocking around my skull for the past two chapters, so I finally caved and drew it out.
This was my first time drawing this type of lighting. I think I got the point across. Not too keen on the perspective, but I'm showing improvement. And I can't decide if Altley's head is too big or not. Bleh.
I still love this, though. It's just a tiny bit spoilery for C&L, as it's set in the sequel, but the fact that I'm planning a sequel in the first place is just as spoilery. So fuck it.
I like the idea that he's made it to safety and gotten all of his injuries cared for. They gave him a cup of tea and left him to relax. Because letting yourself get distracted in Aperture Science would wind up getting you killed, Altley's had to suppress and ignore a lot of things over the past week. Now he has a chance to work his way through everything, and he's been at it so long that his tea is now forgotten and cold.
Because let's face it, I've put him through a LOT
of shit so far in C&L. This image is a little heartbreaking for me.
(You win exactly zero internets for guessing who's peeking in on dear Altley.)
