Don't be silly! M4X-W3LL Can't sing! He just plays a song from his ... thingy.

All out of context inferences aside.... ahem. I have a hard time imagining modern speakers for M4X-W3LL...he would probably find some way to get his robotic claws on a record player for the singing. For everyday talking/taunting Wilson, I think he'd use a radio in some sort of PA system, like in the forbidden knowledge video. M4x's Aperture labs would be still be very high tech, but in a Steampunky way. Just because he's all shiny and futuristic doesn't mean he can't still use 1920s tech for everything else. A robot has to have standards, you know.

Well ... GLaDOS has no visible speakers either, just a voice that seems to follow us everywhere.

Silly you~ Just replace all the square parts with round ones and change the material from moonrocks and black plates to brass and brick walls ... or other if you have anything in mind.

True, but I like the idea of having speaker boxes mounted on the walls near the cameras, especially since we've already seen Maxwell talk through a radio before.

Yes, I like this plan! I would probably have pistons replace the little arms that control the wall panels, large rotating gears that roll aside rather than automatic doors, and a pressurized, steam powered elevator. Probably way more pipes as well. I think I may be overanalyzing this... dangit, Science, now I want to draw all of this stuff but I can't because my scanner is a load of garbage, and it would take forever to upload. Aghhhhh frustratiooooon! I blame you, sir. Go sit in a corner and think about what you've done.

[ATTACH=CONFIG]5330[/ATTACH]Nope. Have this.

Hnnnnnggggh! Yes. This. All of this. Hey, wait. Is this a cunning distraction? I think it is. Science, you're killing me here. YOUR AWESOME ART DOES NOT HELP WITH MY IMAGINATION RUNNING WILD NOR MY FEELS , IN FACT IT MAKES BOTH OF THEM WORSE, SO TO THE CORNER WITH YOU SIR! GRATUITOUS USE OF CAPS LOCK FOR EMPHASIIIIIISSSS.

but then who would be weatley? Charlie?

So much for me not thinking about this anymore...alright, screw it, I'm doing more M4X-W3LL labs art, crappy scanner be darned. I will find a goat or something to sacrifice to get it running. I already have ideas for turrets, companion cubes, and Wheatley. I both really want to say my Wheatley idea, yet also have it be a surprise...hmm.

Hehehehe. Have some more~! (sadly, due to sizing issues, I had to cut it in half, but fret not, the concepts themselves are just fine.)post-5416-1376459225274_thumb.png

Alright. I give in, resistance is futile. I surrender, Science. You have won. I will assume the party escort position. *lies face down in delicious cake and weeps* Nooooo now the cake is soggy, look at the madness you have wrought! I am very jealous of the speed you can get this art up by, though. I'm holding out for a tablet on my birthday, which is in 2 or so months, but the wait is killing me. So in the meantime my posts are slow, slow, slow. As I have mentioned in literally every post because I am a whiner. I should have at least the companion cube up by tomorrow...and then Wheatley, a turret, and my design for the portal device, eventually.

You win, Science.

GLaDOS would be proud, if you said that to her. And of course the cake isn't ruined. Because there's no cake. It's always have been a lie, silly. Even the one you saw in some deep room at the end of Portal 1 was a lie. It was all lies!

Good luck with that, considering that GLaDOS said that she's just recycling the air you breathe, I bet there's not much oxygen down there.

Yes, but what they lack in oxygen they make up for in deadly neurotoxin. And withering sarcasm.

And speaking of science machines, Science....

"Pal, I'd like to remind you that the Companion Machine cannot speak. In the event that the Companion Machine does speak, I urge you to disregard its advice. Not that anything it would have to say would be remotely helpful, of course. After all, you made it, so how useful can it really be?" ~ M4X-W3LL

Dangit, I said this thread was not going to die like the last one! Homework is being nuts, along with paper/exam crunch time, but that is no excuse for letting a thread perish. Therefore, meet the Spider Turret!

Posted Image

It combines all the terror of a giant, hairy spider with the eerie politeness and laser guided accuracy of a turret. What more could an AI ask for?

Hang on [MENTION=3160]jujubomber[/MENTION], let me ask. Hey Spiderturret? http://i1.theportalwiki.net/img/1/16/Turret_turret_autosearch_1.wavJuju would like to hang out. What do you say? http://i1.theportalwiki.net/img/3/30/Turret_turretlaunched05.wavAlrighty, Spiderturret No. 24601, go have a grand adventure with your new friend!http://i1.theportalwiki.net/img/9/9c/Turret_turretlaunched08.wav* M4X-W3LL Laboratories hopes you enjoy your new purchase, pal. Please note that some small malfunctions may occur, such as the propagation of self-replicating turret eggs, spreading of nanofiber web, and possibly involuntary customer transport to a designated test facility. Rest assured that the automatic recording of any and all turret and user activity is simply for quality monitoring purposes. Any so-called "gentlemen scientists" who attempt to convince you otherwise are liars, and should be reported to the M4X-W3LL Laboratories Customer Services Department immediately so that their concerns can be "addressed" accordingly.

I'm glad you like them! I wanted to save Wheatley for last, since he's my favorite M4X-W3LL fusion idea. Behold, SmallWheatley! post-6023-13764592465539_thumb.jpgI just like the mental picture of him bouncing behind Wilson, trying to be helpful, but mostly just getting himself into trouble and forcing Wilson to rush in and save him. In my mind, instead of being on a Management Rail in the beginning, he'd be a tallbird, and he'd probably "hack" things by just wriggling between panels and loosening some screws. All up to personal interpretation, I suppose. That's about all the Aperture stuff I can think up...and I'm kind of at a loss for what to doodle next. I have one or two drawings squirreled away still, but they'll run out soon. So, ideas, anybody?

I'm going to be tacky and doublepost. But since it's art, I have an excuse. Even though I don't like spiders in real life, they're pretty cute in Don't Starve. However, I'm pretty sure that's not how you become a Spiderqueen. A for effort, though. [ATTACH=CONFIG]4870[/ATTACH]

I don't care for spiders in real life either, but in Don't Starve they scare the crap outta me! Like, I see a den and shudder, a spider comes to attack, I like, freak. But, I'm trying to face my fears in the game so I can actually get stuff done. In my first world, I never left my fire... Lol. Great job too! You know what I'd love to see? A Don't Starve version of you! I've been doing that forever now, and I finally got my favorite portrait!

The Demon Scrolls told of his return.His defeat was merely a delay'Til the time after the Machine was opened,When the sons of Science would spill their own blood.But no one wanted to believe,Believe he even existed.And when the truth finally dawns,It dawns in shadow.But there's one he fears;In their tongue, he's Wilson P. Higgsbury -- Scienceborn!And you accuse me of planting crossover thoughts? Curse you, Storm!

Oh Glob. Ermmm. Hmmm. See, now I don't know. I am never happy with my drawings of people...additionally, a lot of times when people draw "themselves" they are drawing their internet personas, rather than what they look like IRL. As one huge spoiler, though, unlike what my profile pic may suggest....I am not actually a prehistoric crocodile, and I have no idea what my internet self would be... I wouldn't want to bust something out without thinking, and have it be all derpy. On top of that, there's the question of wether I would try to draw myself in Don't Starve Style or in my own style but in the Don't Starve world.... I don't know which to do aaahhh help*brain ruptures*Oh, and by the way congrats on your first post! Welcome to the forums :)

My condolences....all those spikes and scales, he must be a ridiculous challenge to draw. You are a braver soul than I. Luckily for me, M4X-W3LL's stuff mostly featured big, friendly shapes formed by panels and plates, so I got to take the easy way out.
