Portraiture of Gaben by UnidColor Portraiture of Gaben by UnidColor
[link]

This is a portrait of Gabe Newell that I did for a small project with my cousin known as Mastgrr.
So I recorded this painting as a video and he made a song to go along with it. I hope you like it :).

For you who don't know who Gabe is, he is the co-founder of Valve Corporation, Doing video games like Team fortress, Half life and Left for Dead.

HAHHAHAHAAaa,m good portrait.

Yet Valve is not doing all those AAA titles, The only game they made was first halflife and that got popular because of a MOD (counterstrike) From that point on EVERY single-game that has valve stamp on it was a MOD for something that other people created, then bough by valve and produced into games.

Smart strategy on their part.
Love their games and play them still.

Yep, they're doing DotA2 now. Pretty excited about that one :).

Im afraid that people will not buy the dota2 because everybody are used to playing the mod. It might not do so great. But Im sure valve knows what they are doing.

Oh, not at all. It's already in great popular demand; I'm an active member of the Heroes of Newerth community (which is pretty much also a rip-off from DotA, like League of Legends, it just has it's own heroes and all), and at least half of it's members seems extremely excited about DotA 2 and very much willing to buy it. Personally I can't wait either; I really loved DotA as it was, but the system was simply extremely flawed because it was a mod. Teams were often unfair, there was no anti-leaver policy and half the time the lag/delay was more of a factor in whether or not you'd win than your actual playing skills :/. This won't be a problem anymore when the actual game comes out AND it will have the original, awesome hero designs, just better looking :).

well those other games are not dota rip offs, they are created by people who made dota. I think...

We'll see. Im predicting that dota 2 will not do as well as everyone says it will.

No no, IceFrog gave S2 permission to make HoN (as well as copy the skills of original heroes in DotA for their game). At some point though Valve was making concepts for DotA 2 (also in agreeance with IceFrog no doubt) and at that point S2 was no longer allowed to port heroes from DotA, they had to start making their own (which they did and which didn't go all too well at the start, lol).

Indeed we'll see :). I'm definitely one of the people who will be buying it as I'm sure it'll be well worth the money, but there's indeed a lot of competition in the MOBA field.
