Steampunk Portal Pictures by Risachantag

I love Portal, the video game.  I love how a small game sold as part of the Orange Box grew up to be a big powerhouse in the video game industry.  I love the concepts, the fact that the player learns how to navigate 3D physics, the weird plot, and the songs.  Oh, and I love how the cake is a lie.

I am not alone in my love of this game.  Lisa Rye, known as Risachantag on deviantArt, drew several pictures from  Portal in a steampunk universe (inspired by the fact that Portal was created by Valve on Steam).  While I could wax eloquently about these pictures, I will instead show you what a fantastic (and fantastical) artist Ms. Rye is.


"The Gentlemanly Escort Cube"

"Wheatly Dumbwaiter Service"

"Steampunk Portal"

"The Gentry Turret"
In addition to making art, Risachantag also wrote creative stories around the pictures.  So if you have a few minutes, it's worth going to her website and reading up.
