You're going to see a lot of Portal 2 Western fanart using object-heads (or as I temporarily like to call them, "primary core extensions". PCE's for short) in my gallery soon, so I thought I should post a cast list before I confuse the heck out of everyone.
PCE's are primarily inspired by a few of Rat Man's drawings in the game, and further embraced by this mind blowing awesomeriffic website: fuckyeahportalshops.tumblr.com… I have no idea who was the first to do it after Rat Man.
The Western part is inspired by the innate fan-instinct (I'm so not the first) to place Portal games in the 1800's, and my undieing love of Western parodies.
This is from waaaay back on April 30th, and it has been spawning brain demons in my head since then: strangerslight.deviantart.com/… (only now everything is a little more north and very much west. I've also done quite a bit more practicing, so Chell will not look in the parody the same way she does here).
Chell: The Gunslinger (I felt bad for not giving her any manner of weaponry before, so now she has a pair of pearl-handled revolvers. Since moon dust is a little difficult to collect in the 19th century, they just shoot bullets. On the up side, since she's Chell, she finds some very clever uses for those bullets)
Wheatley: The Snake Oil Salesman (oooh, forewarning! Although he does believe in his products)/ Classic Villain (I need to figure out the actual name for those guys. He may also suffer from a case of Snidely Whiplash syndrome, where-in he has the uncontrollable urge to tie people to railroad tracks)
Glados: The Priest (I don't have any problem with religion; The priest in a western is just often depicted in a negative light. Plus, she does love to burn things)
Potato Battery: A Horse Named Potato
Rick: Frontiersman (Those guys with the coon skin hats. He is in a secret relationship with Rocket Sentry from Portal 1. What Can I say? He loves danger!)
Space Core: Prospector (Gold! Gold! Gold!)
Fact Core: Telegraph Interpreter (He's terrible at his job, so it's like a game of telephone with him. Only with a telegraph. It's a game of telegraph?)
Companion Cube: The Bar(Saloon?)tender
Co Op Bots: Saloon Girl (And Guy)/ Giant Battle Robots (Wait, what? You'll find out soon enough!)
Rat Man: The Town Drunk (or at least that's everyone's opinion of the poor guy)
Turrets: Cows (Defective Turrets become delicious burgers and Franken-Turrets are what happen when you let Wheatley gene splice)
Cores from Portal 1: Tumble Weeds (Talking tumble weeds. Except for, you know, Morality Core the quiet conscious)
Rocket Sentry: Oil rig worker (I don't know if there were oil rig workers back then and in that part of the country. I just wanted an excuse to ship Rick and and a masculine Rocket Sentry as a couple.)
Cave Johnson: The Sheriff
Caroline: The Deputy
Birds from Portal 2: Vultures
G-man: The Mysterious Stranger (he's going to keep his briefcase even if I have to staple it to his shoulders. And considering how I'm going to draw most of the characters, I just might)
Please let me know any comments, questions, and advice you may have! (my knowledge of Westerns and 19th century history is still rather limited) This isn't going to be a whole retelling of the game, just a few jokes and ye old quotes.
Let me know if you want me to do something for your, OC, as well C: (There is already one lovely deviant I owe some work to). There are still quite a few roles that can be filled.
Portal and Portal 2 belong to Valve.
Rick/Rocket Sentry = OTP!
I'm just determined to make you people think I'm either an idiot or I've gone completely crazy, aren't I? *u*
