Just One Minute by mvtk42 Just One Minute by mvtk42
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.)

Shameless Self-Promotion

You know, ever since I first saw this pic (which was when I started bombing you with comments on the fic itself), something's seemed slightly off to me about this, and I've been trying to puzzle it out ever since then.

After being sick this whole week and therefore spending far too much time on the ol' computer analyzing fanart for something to do (I'm that desperately bored already), I finally (after five minutes straight staring) got it.

Altley appears to be resting quite a bit of weight on the knee brace for his injured leg, which I know from past experience in injuring my leg and loving tea is a quick way to a large amount of pain.

Of course, this means I'll just dump this here and fave the pic because I love absolutely everything else about it.

Injury consistency is love.

I can't lie, I don't remember what I was thinking when I drew it that way. It was probably done out of a combination of having difficulty deciding where the arm was placed, not being very good at perspective/depth, and ignorance (I've never injured my knee before, so I don't know how much it hurts or what you can get away with).

Thank you for pointing that out!

It's okay, and it actually happened to me quite a lot because I did it out of habit, which could be why Altley's doing it here. Anyway, I can't really criticise, because you can actually draw not only humans, hands, and dynamic posing, but all three at the same time.

Hahahaha, it's more by accident than design -- sometimes I just magically draw something that doesn't look like ass, and I can't explain how.

And just because you may not be able to draw something doesn't mean you can't see it. I've spotting things that I couldn't draw to save my life, but still looks odd. Anyone who tells you that just because you can't do what they can means you can't critique them is a blithering idiot and doesn't deserve your attention.

Well, kinda what I more meant was that I don't really know the limits of the medium, per se, but I know what you mean.

Thank you very much! I'm glad it translated well -- I wasn't sure if I could pull off "internalized drama" without any dialogue. Thank you!
