Portal 2, acrylic painting

This painting was a Christmas gift for my brother. He’s a bit of a gamer and I wanted to give him something personal for a change. He introduced me to the Portal series and I instantly fell in love with GLaDOS and the general atmosphere in the game. This is probably the game I’ve played the most on PC. I’m actually kind of proud of this one.

I’ve been painting with acrylics for a year now, and I only just learned to correctly estimate how intense the colors will be when the paint dries on the canvas. Acrylic paint (at least the brands I’ve been using) shift color and turn out way too intense when they dry out, which has been pretty frustrating. The real world doesn’t look like a Photoshop image with the saturation set to max.
