Portal by Isaac-Volpe Portal by Isaac-Volpe
Twentieth in a series of video game posters.

The goal is to represent each title though basic elements featured in the game that would be immediately recognizable.

I'm sure everyone who's played Portal has created an infinite free fall at least once and for me it's still quite fun to do, I could have created the portal gun for this one but I'm afraid it would look too much like my Half Life 2 poster. This is just as good though, if not (infinitely) better.

I recreated a new version, although, I did notice someone has already submitted something similar so I may consider not trying to out compete an existing design.

Wait that wasn't you? Damn, when we saw that submitted we thought for sure it was your art, its so similar. Are you sure that person wasn't influenced by your art?

I did indeed submit my design anyways, so if you see one that looks nearly identical to this one it is mine, but, there is another one that uses the same motif. Not a problem since visually they do look different, just have the same idea.

I really love all your stuff. Working on a TF2 contest right now. I am hoping when that happens you will also be a part of it too. Thanks!

Love this! You should submit to the official Portal design contest on WeLoveFine!  contest.welovefine.com/contest…

If you do submit, replace Valve for Aperture - The Valve trademark is not part of the contest. 

This would make a great art print!

Quite honestly, I love (most of) the others... but in this one I would've used one of the parts GLaDOS drops at the end of portal one

Hehe, a personality core? I had thought of it but felt it didn't quite represent the whole thing, might do an illustration with all the cores in it though.

The most representign thing would've been the portal gun... but as you said, it looked very similar to the gravity gun

I really like this, but aren't the colors off a bit? That looks more like yellow than orange to me.

:iconisaac-volpe:
Isaac-Volpe Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2011
Yeah it is off by a bit, an orange color doesn't provide as strong a color, I could have a strong orange but not too sure so I favored the current one. Glad you liked it though, hope it's not too distracting.

Excellent design. Captures the game perfectly and has a wonderful retro feel to it. Well done!

I knew something simple was better suited here, wasn't purposely trying a retro touch though, nice to see that new perspective now, Cheers!

Nice poster, first I thought it was a endless hallway between to walls, but the endless fall is more probable, and more useful in the game.

Isaac-Volpe Featured By Owner May 5, 2011
Yup it's an endless free fall, incredibly useful in the first game indeed. =)

I concentrated first on games I've personally played, while I do have the PSP version of LBP I don't own a PS3, :crying: , but the game is on my list for future posters, =)

Its perfect, but i think that companion cube or cake is more "typical". Still good poster though=)

While I do love the companion cube I wanted to have portals for "Portal", makes sense right? yes, no, maybe? =p

Your goal is to represent each title though basic elements featured in the game that would be immediately recognizable. I think that companion cube or cake exactly fits to this role=)

But as you said, you wanted portals in Portal and i got your point and i really like it though=)

But it's too obvious. Both are now a meme. I looked at this and saw the connection immediately.
