Hey guys! I was recently contacted by Colin and Connor (who did the AMAZING Portal: Survive! short film) to do some concept comics for their Portal-based webseries proposal, “Secrets of Aperture” !
They’re currently running a Kickstarter to raise funds for production costs and if successful, the whole thing will be available online for free so if you want to help bring this series (which looks amazing and super high quality) to everyone then you can toss in a few dollars here!
You can also view two more comics I did for this on the campaign page, though I will post them separately to Tumblr too over the next few weeks. Enjoy!
Blue Sky the Animation (animatic)

EDIT 11/24: Okay, here’s some production history on this animatic. The project began in October of 2011, and the majority of the work was done in the summer of 2012. This was a side project for everyone, meaning we all had jobs or school going on while working on this and I cannot be more proud of the effort and time people took out of their lives to help bring this idea to life. Thank you Blue Sky team for all the hard work! You guys truly were a wonderful team to work with and I wish you all the best of luck in your future endeavors. <3
Will this project be finished?
We have all moved on from this project, it has been over a year since anyone has really done much work on it. So, no, this is the final version of the Blue Sky animatic and we will not be finishing it.
This animatic is dedicated to waffleguppies and the portal fandom as a whole – to our creativity and kindness as a group of artists, writers, gamers, observers and individuals. You inspire us, just as we hope we inspire you in return. Stay fabulous (ﾉ´ヮ´)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
Everyone did a wonderful job, I’m so proud to have been a part of this project! I loved working with you guys, you’re all great people <3
What she said! It was great fun and my first try at storyboards
Things that are mine: Wheatley landing in the lake and getting grabbed by GLaDOS, Chell rescuing Wheatley and Wheatley’s transfer into his hard-light body, the office flashback and Wheatley waking up, and everything in the second half of the video except for a couple segments (Chell leaving Wheatley behind to go back to the facility, and a few drawings near the end as they step through the portal)
As it says in the updated description, we’ve all kinda moved on from this and this is probably about as finished as it’s gonna get, hence why it’s being shown in this form
Note that the video has been edited a lil since it was first uploaded so give it another watch to catch things that got left out the first time around!
PHEW okay, here we go: I was secret Santa for ceruleancontessa!
She gave me all sorts of things she liked, like Chelley, Rick, GLaDOS, turrets… so I decided to incorporate a whole bunch of them in one thing and this is what I came up with!
Wheatley and Rick decide to try and win Chell’s affections with a choir of turrets.
Hope you like it, and happy holidays! C:
Just some Wheatleys from stream yesterday: Mel’s, mine, and both!
I drew you a thing! ♥
EEHEE PINALI DREW ME A THING!! LOOK AT IT!!
BWAHHH THANK YOU PINALI! HE IS SO LANKY AND AWKWARD AND ALL IS PERFECT!
I love the texture and the shading and his posture and clothes wrinkles and his silly face and silly shoes and silly hair and Pinali is too nice for putting up with me so much UHLHUL.
