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!

An Entire Map Of Half-Life 1… Drawn From Memory; And More Half-Life Cartography

Half-Life An Entire Map Of Half-Life 1… Drawn From Memory; And More Half-Life Cartography

Black Mesa. The place where the world went to hell. In the original Half-Life, we only see a relatively small part of it, but even so, what we do see amounts to an underground complex the size of a small city. Even though HL1 was never really known for its logical level design, many fans have tried to put together a cohesive map of the complex (such as this top-down overview by “Sterd”; this composite model by “Ripa”; and this realistic 3D map by David Dryburgh). But no one has ever tried to put a map together completely by memory, and by hand! What’s that? They have? Christ, is there anything the community hasn’t done in the time it took Valve to make HL3?

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.
