Freeman by Guennol Freeman by Guennol
instead of distracting myself from the commission I was working on by playing HL1, I ended up speedpainting it....

polished up the speedpaint today about as far as I could be bothered

Half-life belongs to Valve etc.....

I suppose I should dedicate this to ~Normansell

EDIT: now at its original size, which is hopefully large enough for anything anybody wants to do with it :D

Absolutely amazing image (also it's great that you are one of the 5 people total who upload in a decent resolution lol).
I came upon this image while searching around for new images for a show I run on YouTube called Half-Life Saga. I have previously made an intro used in those videos using a picture my good friend Michael (AKA Skidd) drew for me. It had a really good run and although I really like it and the song that went along with it for the Half-Life 1 games, when I eventually made my way to HL2 I didn't feel that it suited the mood. So I decided to look for new pictures which is what brings me here. I am currently talking to a couple artists but yours was one of the ones that particularly stood out to me as being exceptional. If I were to use your work I would of course link any and all pages that you may desire in the description of each video and verbally mention you in the first couple sessions. Below I will link some of the things relevant to what I am talking about:

Example of the previous intro made for the Half-Life Saga:

Example of another intro made for Borderlands 2:

Finally, this is the music that I plan to use for the new intro (I feel it suits this drawing quite well)

Thank you for your time and I hope we can work something out :)

Who would have thought that a scientist with no military training would become one of the most badass action game protagonists ever. Freeman's my favorite, and this painting does him justice. Well played, sir!
