Cara bel cara mia bella... by bowlersandtophats Cara bel cara mia bella... by bowlersandtophats
This. Took. Forever.

I kid you not. 8I About a whole month's work I assure you, the lineart wasn't so bad, it was the coloring which made me stop every other day or so until I either wanted to work on it or sparked inspiration to do so. Anyways-

Yeup this is somewhat of the reason why I haven't posted anything on DA for a while. xD Sorry about that...Tumblr and all. But I really did enjoy working on this and I must say- it's probably one of my best works yet. But that's what I think, not sure about you.

So I hope you guys enjoy this picture that I worked so hard on. -3- Sweat and early-mid afternoons working on this and I gotta say it was totally worth it.

Enjoy!

EDIT: 10/25/11
I got a DD, holy cow I didn't know this would happen. xD Gosh I feel flattered, really wow...Well I want to thank *lia-a-eastwood for suggesting my work to the dA community and ^kasumichan2003 for featuring it!

And to everyone else! Thank you for watching me this whole time, I hope you continue to oversee my progress as an artist! :' )

Wow, how many things in that art... I can not stop looking at it. When I look into the details of this I'm starting to hear how strongly my heart beating... You're so well-tried. Birds where Wheatley, sun where Space, knives where Rick. Lemons, potatoes. The cores of the second part looks different, and those who from the first part is very similar - I think that's very correct. And of course you have drawn very well and efficiently. I will not say that there are no people who draw better than you but in your drawing more inspiration and effort than the hundreds of other arts. It makes me want to imbued as it should and try to add soul to drawing someone... It is actually a creative work. You have a rich imagination...

.O. Holy. Crap.
* I'm gonna try to do a very deep cmment*
I listened to this song while looking at this, and it's like they are worshipping chell, like she is all there saviors, and GLaDOS, by her facial exspressions, is like trying to hide something deep inside of her from chell.
And it shows all the portal stuff! I love how you also hide stuff in the picture, like those birds in wheatley's picture, and those tiny cores of fact, and love those portal 1 cores in the back.
I also noticed that behind GLaDOS's head is a sun-like figure, like she brings all of the facility together, and brings light to it all, while chell, being in a color-scheme (I believe it's called ) Of orang and blue with the wheat is like there savior, like GLaDOS was running our of ways to shine, but the human steps up like the moon, and alows GLaDOS to shine her light on Chell.

Ohoho this makes me so happy you don't even knoooow. ;m; I want to steal a couple designs from the suits (mostly from Wheatley hohohohoo) because I luv itttt soo muchhh. I especially love how you incorporated the potatoes and lemons in there xD
You could totally separate each panel individually by character and kind of make them longer maybe? Then you can print and sell them as bookmarks :>c I would be so happy. Other than the fact it would be kind of illegal or something hahawhat.
*goes to raid your gallery of everything Portal and non-Portal* *also +watch* *also possible marriage--/shot*
