Lol, what's with my face?

One of the (many) things I love about mute characters is that you see so many different interpretations of them. I've seen smug Gordon, manly Gordon, lovestruck Gordon, drunk Gordon, humorous Gordon, gore-spattered Gordon... I am more than happy to add this to my repertoire.

Beautiful - but he seems so weary somehow, as if the fate of the world were resting on his shoulders...oh wait, it is...

"You look like shit Freeman..." somehow i always thought he was like that... XD good to know i'm not the only one there are at least three or five people who think about that... Xb good to know he has Alyx to bring some balance in his thoughts XD

Sorry about the freaky paragraph above, i just had to write it (fights to regain control over his fingers XD) its an awesome paint of my second favourite fps protagonist XD and sorry about my bad english, im not from an english-speaking country XL

You see all these images of him with his face full of rage as he acts like the manly badaxx that he is, then you see one of the rare gems like this one. Then you remember that despite all epic that he accomplishes, he's fighting to survive in this hellish alternate Earth where has seen so many people die, some of those people close to him, and every day is another struggle for survival. Then you realize that in the moments where he has any degree of peace, he likely thinks about everything he and the world have gone through, and just can't help but look sad and tired. This, in my opinion, is the true face of Gordon Freeman. The true face of the One Free Man.

Poor Gordon. He looks about as tired, upset, disheartened, and bone-weary as one would think after fighting his way through one hellhole after another with seemingly no end to the struggle. That is a man who deserves a rest. It would be well-earned.

Beautiful job.

He kinda looks like brad pitt.

Great work here.:)
Randomwaffles Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2010   Writer
I really like this picture.

It looks like he's just tired and sad to be killing zombies and the combine all day and would rather just go back to researching, but he's such an iconic image for the resistance, and has so much to worry about including the G-man and trying to save humanity that he knows he'll never have the freedom he once had back.

Or something like that, awesome picture!

He looks tired.
ChemicalAlia Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah, I imagine he doesn't get much rest.
Timmy-22222001 Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2009
Quite amazing the various lines and how they decipher all the detail and flow of the skin, this is awesome!

Well you definitely got some Half Life fans here and for good reasons with wicked skilled artwork like this, bravo!

Kudos on the very impressive realistic overall shot of Gordon though, even to his famous suit and the look on his face, all rich in quality. *applauses*

Combines made me tricked bro, I am sorry...
Apotheosi Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2009   General Artist
o lol! i know that line! :iconimhappyplz:
EliteInSkirt Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2009
It's the best! XD

Right after "John Freeman was fraid for first time. He didn't want nothing to happen to Henry Freeman because Henry Freeman was John Freemans saw Combines start to run like monsters to the hummens and Henry Freeman and Henry Freeman and hummens run like brave to Combines!"

Apotheosi Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2009   General Artist
damn straight!
EliteInSkirt Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2009
I hope I never have to run like monsters, it looks like it involves ropes and is very painful.
Apotheosi Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2009   General Artist

The face of a mute man who's only form of self expression is through his crowbar.
Nullando Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2009
nice - full of win! :D
sythpopsamurai Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2009  Student Digital Artist
i'm sure a lot of people have said this before but i adore the expression you gave Gordon. i would make the same face if the world's safety was in my hands.
Starjuice Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2009  Professional Traditional Artist
You made him look a little worried, WHICH IS SO MUCH MORE HOW HE SHOULD LOOK than the usual TOTALLY BADASS NOT IN AGONIZING PAIN/DANGER AT ALL TIMES(which he is). Also it looks SWEET!
Kiddo32 Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2009  Student Digital Artist
Awesome picture. Uh... Can't really say much, it's too epic for words.
MaxwellRosie Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2009   Writer
Ah, Gordon Freeman in the flesh... or rather, the Hazardsuit.

Great work!
