Why does Valve keep tormenting us with such horribly long and awaited titles, swear they're making us go nuts for the intention of getting more money, bleh.
Anycase just stunned can say the least to such a brilliant display and perfection of the whole Half-Life universe with some tenderness to really make you say awww even in the face of Earthly doom.
Wicked detailing of the surrounded background with the tattered and broken buildings in the shadows, getting a good sense of gloom but again bringing light to the shield system in the middle.
Find the markings on the shield charger and the crowbar the nicest touch. Again simple and very effective to the fans of the game and hell who doesn't know what a crowbar is about when you say Valve?
Finding it hard as nail to describe such vivid details and focus from the shiny and faded parts of the metal on the objects, the crumbling look of the walls to even the shine of the welcoming blue light.
Your a true professional for your ability to draw and even more create a realistic and rich environment that puts you right into the feel of Gordon Freeman approaching this very same situation. Keep up the incredible work Nitro, nuff said.
