Lightbulb Half-Life artwork

I love the art style of the Half-Life universe and its characters, and I often lament that there's not really too much fan art out there to be found. Despite being such a popular series, it doesn't get nearly as much attention in that regard as other Valve games, particularly TF2 and even Portal (sadly image tags don't even work here). Maybe it lacks something of the flashy stylistic appeal that inspires a lot of fan art, but who knows.

Anyway, if anyone out there is into art, I'd like to put out a general call to share and contribute any creative HL-related stuff you might have to help rectify this great injustice. Or if you have any favorite work by other artists, it'd be cool to see their stuff as well (try to credit them if you know the author). It's great to get to see the characters and environments interpreted by other people and in different styles.

That said, I'll start off with a huge dump I've amassed of my own drawings that I haven't as of yet grown to hate.

Obviously shopped. But they look pretty convincing. Have some rep for that.

(Sarcasm in this post. They are really good drawings )

His face reminds me of the guy who was the Night Owl in Watchmen (the novel, not the movie)

I love the Overwatch, I keep meaning to draw more with them but rarely get around to it. There's so little Combine fanart too, it sucks.
