Haters gonna so hate.... :heart: Haha :D
And it's even strange because.... in Portal you can ship anyone and anything, literally... I like to keep some sane boundaries and yes, I think Chell and Rattman are still in those boundaries. I wonder if the people's view on them would change drastically if Valve would let them meet in Portal 1... which was..supposed to really happen. I wrote it a several times in comments and I can finally write it in the artist comment....(because I have something decent to post X'D).
Would your opinion change if they'd meet up in the game? (you don't have to really answer.... I just thought it's an interesting thought).

they have a lot in common in my eyes, I think they'd really suit each other. Like a puzzle.

I actually drew a cheesy picture....again. Wow.Yay for having emotions X'D :heart:

Rattman and Chell from Valve's Portal game

strongly inspired by :iconroman-rain: 's "Out of fire" :hug:

letraset and PS

The picture's not cheesy!

I really like the colouring style! I love it when you make Chell and Doug somewhat how you call it, unwellgroomed and maybe malnourished.
I keep staring at Doug's face because I like the way you draw and colours his eyes and his expressions very much!

P.S. Is Chell's mouth slightly open? Or is it just a shadow.

god job
I've just always wanted to know their ages. My opinion about them wouldn't change if they were to meet in the game. They're still a cute couple (so much better than ChellDOS shippers)

Me too :) Doug looked like in his late twenties or thirties in the LabRat... But Chell...duh...Who knows. I think their souls are so close that age doesn't really matter ;)
Amen. I honestly don't think their ages are far apart. NO MORE than 10. Probably closer to 5. They're just so flippin cute!!! *holds in squee*

Makes more sense than Chell and Wheatley (as lovable as his character is)~ The whole "same species" (if you would count robots as their own species) concept kinda helps xD

I can't agree more :highfive: :heart: He always cared about her and she was always his hope. That won't change. And thei are both human, which, like you said, makes a lot more sense than anything else.

Good gravy, when are you going to finish that awesome animation you started? My favorite scene is the last one you did, where Ratman is pointing her in the right direction and then kind of turns into steps. It was so symbolic of how he was invisibly helping her the whole time, I loved it! :D
