A Gordon Freeman and HL series tribute

Half-Life is one of my all time favourite things, close to be on par with Elder Scrolls,
so naturally, when an opportunity to show it off is present, I went on to do just that.
Initially done for a contest by steam vk and buka, it's the first work I did in quite a long time.
3-4 months might've passed since the last time I've been any passionate about painting or drawing.

Here's a .gif reenactment of the work process on this piece:
didn't include the clutter on the left, as the cake is 10 layers on its own.
And in case you didn't notice, it's a nod to one of the fav actors of mine.

there are prints too!
