Inktober 2017 – Day 18

Today’s portal prompt was more or less “who’s your favourite test subject?”

Honestly, I’m not sure. To be fair, I haven’t played Aperture Tag yet, but I don’t have anything against 18 except I haven’t seen much art of them. I think 18 is a male test subject, I’d have to check.

Anyway, I took the opportunity to draw both versions of Mel: the “official” blonde Chell reskin that was cut from Portal 2, and Mel from fanmade Portal Stories: Mel, which was given Valve’s blessing even if it wasn’t made by Valve employees. Ginger Mel (Portal Stories) is more or less accepted as the “replacement” for blonde Mel by the Portal community.

Even so, I wanted to draw them together and make a shameless 90s reference—which flies right over ginger Mel’s head as she comes from 1952, before man had ever walked on the moon.

  1. Who’s 18? Is that supposed to be the name of the Aperture Tag test subject? I don’t recall seeing her referenced as “18” before… Also, she’s a girl. She’s a reskin of Chell.
