A fan request, Gordon Freeman is the unlucky scientist of Black Mesa research facility turned hero and out newest addition to the Video Game All Stars line! He's made from a Sigma 6 Zartan body, Iron Grenadier hands, and Long Range head. I had to sculpt all of the upper torso armor from Aves Fixit and let me tell you, sculpting square stuff is a pain in soft putty/clay! He was given the 20-different-kinds-of-paint treatment with all sorts of gunmetals, grays, black hues, and shading/highlighting effects. There's three different orange colors to his armor and metallic scuffing/weathering too. It was more complex than my Helghast.

His glasses will be of particular intrest to some because they're not sculpted to his head but instead free-floating and made from scratch. How to make them? Take a flat piece of blister bubble (I like to use the straps around the Sigma 6 Commando box, they're thicker) and paint the frame of the glasses on the plastic. Hold it up to the figure's face for scale and with a little practice you'll get it down. Then use your X-acto knife to cut out the glasses, sand the edges, and paint the rest of the frame. Glue on wires on the side and then carefully glue them to the brow.(or leave them free-standing) Remember, we're always 'raising the bar' here, hah! Look for Gordon to appear in a future issue of Playstation the Official Magazine!

I had to save this photo! dammit boy! I played all the games of Half-life2 and the espisodes....this is ridiculous! you captured him amazingly accurate! and thanks for raising the bar, it's already too high and can't even see it now!! I wish you put one of those dang spider creatures that keeps jumping on him in the game all mashed up and bloody on the floor after he hit it with that crowbar!

Never played the game, but I recognize the guy and you captured it perfectly. I can see how sculpting those geometric shapes would be a pain lol.
Looks cool.
