Spontaneous Generation: 15 Years of Half-Life Creations

Half-Life Spontaneous Generation: 15 Years of Half-Life Creations

Half-Life is now fifteen. Ok we already known that by now, right?

Throughout these 15 years the game has attracted quite a vast array of artists throughout many forms of artistic efforts. Half-Life has a very creativity community. As a result, there has been an overload of Half-Life fan-art and creations that has and is still being produced after all these years. Don’t believe us?

We wanted to share with you some of the amazing artwork and creativity from around the community that caught our eye over the past fifteen years. Like in all of our other compilations from our 15 Years of Half-Life celebration, we cannot cover everything under the sun and we have very likely forgotten or have not seen many other amazing things too. Please feel free however to remind us!

5 Awesome Half-Life Tumblr Blogs

Half-Life 5 Awesome Half-Life Tumblr Blogs

This year we joined Tumblr, the microblogging platform.

If you’re not already familiar with Tumblr, it has a predominant focus towards art and design and is used by thousands of creative individuals to share ideas, thoughts and pieces of artwork with the world.

It’s in no question that Tumblr has a huge Valve fan-base (or known natively on the service as a ‘fandom’). The fusion of creative individuals with the establishment  of Valve’s work has led to the generation of some amazing content, creations and projects.

We wanted to share with you a few of our favourite blogs that we have found from both our personal usage of the site over the years and also from what we have found after brining LambdaGeneration to the service earlier this year.

Calling All Artists

Other Calling All Artists

Hello, and welcome to the new ‘Creations’ section of LambdaGeneration. With this new category we hope to establish a series of weekly articles rounding up the best fanart the Valve community has to offer, and you can help by submitting your own! Remember, fanart just doesn’t mean drawings and paintings, the term art can take many shapes and forms, here are some examples of what you can submit:

  • Your GlaDOS Sculpture
  • Your cool Half-Life 2 Computer Case Mod
  • Your Gmod Screenshots (Though you should be playing JB Mod)
  • A Cosplay you did
  • An SFM Poster you made
  • Your shrine to Gabe Newell
  • Your working Wheatley Puppet
  • And much more!

Creation images can be emailed to creations[-at-]lambdageneration.com or submitted to the LambdaGeneration Tumblr http://lambdageneration.tumblr.com/submit

I must state that we cannot accept any fanart that is not safe for work, it’s not that we don’t appreciate it, it’s just that we want LambdaGeneration to be accessible to Valve fans of all ages.

Thanks for reading, and get creating!
