This is GLaDOS. I'm sure you've heard of her. She starred as the antagonist in Portals 1 & 2(to an extent). And she is amazing.

In honor of Portal 2, I started working on this. Some unfortunate events slowed my progress, but I'm satisfied enough to call it done.

Now, you may notice that I took a couple design liberties. Some, like the removal of the third wire attaching the midsection to the upper body, were the results of me liking the design better without it. Others, like the red strip on her midsection casing, are just me adding my own touch to her design. Also, the mostly blacked out second wire and mid-section-to-body wires are the product of some laziness, but I think they fit in style-wise still.

Colorcube Analysis says 20 colors, it took about 10 hours of total work. Progress gif:
Original Sketch:
References: Just go google "GLaDOS". I think I used the image from wikipedia's GLaDOS article the most.

Simple crits will be incorporated, complex ones less so.

I'm aware that some spots seem a little lazy, but honestly I'm bored of working with this right now. I'll probably come fix her up some day.

Well now when I can see it properly I have to say it looks great!

Yeah, some browsers can do that. Firefox had a problem zooming for a while too, although they fixed that.

Speaking of funky formats, turns out that the WIP gif got a little iffy. It still shows my progress effectively though.

@Harrisonk & Manuziari: Thank you both very much!

@KwIkL & Sneep: Thanks for the favs!

What format is this saved in? looks funky when i zoom in..

Edit: Nevermind it was the web-browser. Apperantly zooming in looks weird in Opera

Nice use of AA's dude.

:3 That's really encouraging to hear! I'm glad to have done GLaDOS justice.

@Jinn: Thank you, I think. I really admire your work, so it's motivating to see you post on one of my pieces.

Really good.  It almost didn't look like pixel art until I zoomed in!  Great job!

"Well, you found me. Congratulations. Was it worth it? Because despite your violent behavior, the only thing you've managed to break so far... is my heart. Maybe you could settle for that, and we'll just call it a day. I guess we both know that isn't going to happen."
