I managed to post some of these on other platforms on time, but between my schedule and my energy levels, I’m posting them all here tonight. I plan on sharing a belated piece for the 31st tomorrow.
I know that many will be tempted to say that Blue Sky is their favourite, but honestly, I love Portal fanfics where Chell works at or runs a bakery/coffee shop in general (also worth noting: Blue Sky just so happens to include a bakery setting). These could be AU (alternate universe) storylines, or ones that take place post-game. Because I couldn’t narrow it down, I just drew Chell as a baker.
I never finished the “draw your favourite core in the chassis” prompt (partially due to a bad headache), but I kept two promising base-sketches! It was going to be another “fix-it-Virgil” joke, hence the claws full of tools that he actually knows how to use!
Turrets haven’t really changed much in design since the first Portal game, and neither have most of the cubes (though there were new ones added). They’re still illongated egg-shapes with three legs, unless their side panels are open and their guns are out.
It’d be hard to find a turret more defective than this—it’s half-core!
In-game, defective turrets are basically normal turrets, but without their white shell. They’re a bit tricky to draw given all those exposed mechanical components.
Day 29 and 30 are one drawing. Their prompts were “frankenturret” and “companion cube”, respectively. I drew a companion cube-frankenturret hybrid carting another companion cube onto a button. It’s kind of a nod to how you have access to enough buttons to stack in Portal’s chamber 16.
