About that cat... by ViaEstelar About that cat... by ViaEstelar
I wonder if it’s the same cat Barney keeps having nightmares about. :D
Gman is like “Yes, I’m carrying a cat, and anyone who mentions it out loud will spend the next millennium in stasis”.
I tried to paint a landscape featuring some of the hydraulic facilities designed by our Institute, to hang it in the office, but the picture got rejected for being too gloomy. (Somehow I can’t imagine cheerful hydraulic facilities, to be honest). Anyway, most of our engineering structures look suspiciously Half-Life-ish, so I just added a wrecked Combine Gunship to the picture. Then I suddenly remembered a fleeting encounter I had when I was visiting a local department store a couple of weeks ago (to pick up my t-shirt with freshly printed “Black Mesa” logo). I saw a man near the entrance (very serious-looking, in an expensive business suit) holding a plain grey cat in his arms. For some reason I’ve found that duo amusing. It also must have brought up certain associations that explain this picture.

This picture is so lovely, and shows a side of G-man I never thought I'd see! :D the combination of colours here is absolute perfection. Thank you for making my day with this fantastic piece!

Thank you for your attention. It's appreciated.

This is adorable, but somehow I feel he's going to get that cat into some trouble later on ...
Still, an adorable G-man is not a common sight. And this is awesome.

Интересная, я бы даже сказала захватывающе-развлекательная история у рисунка. И то как твоя фантазия кропотливо вывелась на бумагу, - нет, сомнений, - грандиозно.

Минутка некропостинга.
С удовольствием купил бы не-цифру и повесил на стену. Но с традиционкой вы, я так понимаю, не работаете.
Еще бы посмотрел на Фримена с котиком ну и на Глашку, пожалуй. Вальвовские игры + котики = захваченный мир.
Fuck off, doctor, it is friday. с дайрей.)
Рисуете так же чудесно, как и переводите.

It was rejected :D that's hilarious. What's so gloomy about hydraulic facilities? I think I rather like the eye contact between the two here. It feels a bit private ;P

Oh hi! How's life? :D
As for hydraulic facilities, well, most of them were built back in USSR era and while they still function more or less properly, by this time they look somewhat desolated. They all are massive, bulky, scruffy-looking structures and I can't relate them with cheerfulness :D

what the fuck Gman is being cute what the fuc- *brain asplodes*

anyway great landscape, especially the mountain, it looks great in with mist. The combination of natural landscape and human (or combine) presence really gives this a Half Life-y vibe. Also great job with the Gman's expression. He looks serene and happy, but still Gman-y enough that I'm not so sure about the fate of that cat...
