Portal-Style Mantis by jbrenthill Portal-Style Mantis by jbrenthill
fan art; Uniball pen + Adobe Photoshop

I decided to try and create a praying mantis robot in the style of the robots in Portal and Portal 2. As most of you know I am not the greatest digital artist, but I do like the design and I don't think it's a complete failure!

Portal is the property of Valve.

You did well here he look metallic, his legs are mostly undefined and that contrasts nicely with the sharpness of its body. Regardless of this challenging medium your art theory talents reign through.

A robot mantis isn't an overly original idea, but I'm not familiar with cave johnson's mantiss men.

oh...ok sry.

Its just that when I saw this, I insteanly though "mantiss men"...only to realize that those are half-man, half-mantiss.

They are only mentioned in the game
