Saccharine by mvtk42 Saccharine by mvtk42
Chell and Wheatley belong to Valve. Human alt!Wheatley design mine.

God damnit, Wheatley, stop being so fun to draw! I would like to make ONE picture without you in it! Just one! I would also appreciate not being hit with inspiration just as I'm getting ready to go to bed, and not having to stay up until nine in the fucking morning finishing your picture! Stahp it!

I will learn perspective if it's the last goddamn thing I do. Clothing folds, too. Perspective and clothing folds. I will persevere.

This picture is set the morning after, if you know what I mean.

And I'm going to point this out because it's my favorite detail in this picture: That's Wheatley's shirt Chell's wearing. Because yes.

EDIT: Now that I've actually slept and can manage coherency, I just wanted to share a bit of head canon that doesn't really make it into the drawing, but knowing it's there turns this into my favorite picture ever.

Alt!Wheatley isn't very comfortable with his body. You'll notice almost every time I draw him, he's wearing loose clothing and is covered almost from head to toe, and when he's not he's clearly nervous and embarrassed.

So for him to be completely unselfconscious snuggling in just his boxers and socks shows how comfortable he is with Chell, and ramps this picture up from "cute" to "HOLY FUCK THE FEELS" for me.

EDIT 2: Fixed a couple things that were irritating me. Changed the color of Wheatley's shirt, fixed the steam from the coffee mugs, put more effort into the couch, and trimmed Wheatley's hair. I'm now 2x happier with this picture.

Shameless Self Promotion

Oh god, he looks so happy... And Chell leaning up against him is too cute for words. :)

It was a last-minute decision to change her pose -- she was initially just going to have her legs over his. But I picked this way, and I think the picture is better for it.

Wheatley's expression is the reason this picture is my new favorite.

Well, that, and the fact that I drew a couch that didn't look like a hot bag of ass for the first time in my life.

Well I'm very happy you changed your mind! Also, that is a petty sweet couch. :)

I edited the description to include what I was thinking when I drew this.

Because the feels weren't feely enough.

(And that couch marks a major milestone in the "shit I can draw without it looking stupid as fuck" category.)

I derped so hard on this thing... I spent about fifteen minutes trying to find a good couch stock image to use as reference before I realized I am literally seated directly across from my own fucking couch not ten feet away (I sit on the easy chair).

I felt fucking brilliant. :dummy:
