Orange Teaser p. 1 by Sketch-Zap Orange Teaser p. 1 by Sketch-Zap
EDIT The unfinished page is up: [link]

This is like my only contribution to deviantart. Comics and drawings that make no sense at all.

Should I put a mature tag on this? I know there are like three drops of blood and a gun, along with a headcrab, but I don't think it's that bad. Tell me if you think I should put a tag on this or not.

There should be another page after this one. I have to color and dialogue it yet. You'd think I would have gotten this finished faster, but unfortunately the computer with the scanner program died, and my computer is dying. So I had to upload the scanner program to yet another computer. Also the scanner isn't big enough for the stupid page (by under a centimeter, dangit!) so I had to make two scans and piece them together.
I'm still happy with the result though. I didn't get too hatch happy, the shading on that one building is awesome (you can see I put in in there three times just because I was so proud of it, haha) and personally I think that third panel is one of the best panels I've ever made.
So yeah.
Orange.
Coming soon.
Perhaps.
It will basically be an Orange Box fanfiction comic. There's going to be characters and elements from all three games in the Orange Box. All I have to do now is finish Half-Life 2. By the way, I'm in RAvenholm right now- how much farther do I have to go? Just wondering.

Tell me what you think.
Oh, and would this count as digital or traditional media? I made the lines with ink and pen but I colored it on photoshop...

Aw, how sweet of you! Unfortunately, to talk to you straight- I'm not doing fan comics much anymore, due to the fact I have to aim to impress colleges with original works. I apologize--- but maybe sometime later in the future I can do something.

You're on Ravenholm? Good luck with playing the entire game. The canals were really more of a tutorial, to get you used to the game's mechanics and the way it introduces enemies. Ravenholm is where the game really starts.
And after that you need to get to the two episodes, which are each as long as the game up to the part after Ravenholm.

Have fun~ :D

There's another game you can buy, if you have Half-Life 2 on PC (it's free if you have it) and it makes all of Half-Life 2 co-op multiplayer. The game's Synergy, and you and I could play some time, since I've already more than beaten the game. :)

Aw, I got HL2 on my PS3. I bought the Orange Box for that, haha... But I do got a steam account, though it's a little faulty. I think it's due to my firewall.

Malshun Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
Oh, well that sucks.

The faulty Steam, I mean. I don't think Half-Life 2 is that expensive on Steam, though, so you might be able to buy it, if you have the funds. If not, oh, well, I can still wish you luck in completing the game on your PS3. :)

Haha, thank you. I do have steam, but I'm just using it (so far) to play Team Fortress 2. Unfortunately I haven't been able to get online. I think I need to make a few adjustments to my computer.

It is, I've noticed. This is just a teaser, a practice, so better to make my mistakes now than during the real thing! (Which I have no idea when I'm gonna start. We'll see.)
Other than details I've forgotten, do you like it? What else should I fix? I know Gordon and Chell don't talk, but I have ideas for that.

Haha, well, I got to start studying for finals, so it might be in between the two. Hopefully I will start the actual comic in a few weeks, depending on how much I will play Half-Life.
The next page to this will probably come this weekend.

You rarely see Chell with any kind of expression on here face. I just bought a Chell action figure a Toy-R-Us and she has the most soulless look on her face.


all your Valve party missing is some one from Left4Dead.

The third panel looks amazing! Can't wait to see page two :la:

And I don't think you have to put a mature content on this, and if you used digital and traditional media, you should use the 'mixed media' category. :)
