Blog #036 - Anatomy Of A Portal... 2

Posted by AlisterCat (5635 posts) -

Ordered Portal 2. Waited. Didn't arrive. Played and finished Portal 1. Didn't arrive. So I made some portal 2 fan art.

Portal 2 Poster

I am a big fan of Saul Bass and made a Portal 2 poster in the style of his Anatomy of a Murder poster. I'm really pleased with it, but that always wears off.
I do a daily design blog, and this is design #119, Check it out. Give me feedback, I love it.

Here it is. Please leave comments, I love to see what people have to say.

Anatomy Of A Portal 

Other Jazz

I finished Pokemon White, second run of Dragon Age 2, Clash of Heroes (amazing game) and started Tales of Monkey Island. Gears 3 beta is pretty great.
I'm not here to give game impressions, that's not why people read my blogs.

@EuanDewar: Nah, it's just a poster. I don't write about anything meaningful. :p

Spelt aperture wrong, god damn it. Updated the image.

You also spelt Gordon and Treadmill wrong, but I wouldn't let that hold me back from saying that this looks really good.

I did. These were corrected later but not updated here. I gave up at a certain point. it's what I get for designing at 3am.

@AlisterCat: Well don't stop. How long does it take to put something like that together?

@mekon: That one took an hour or 2. Only because I didn't know what I was doing until it was done, which is how I go about these designs since I am coming up with a new idea every day. This one picked up speed really quickly once I decided what I was going to do since it's a parody of a vintage poster. I don't know if you've checked out the blog, but my illustrations tend to take 4 or more hours. It varies. I work slower than I should.
