Hand-crafted Companion Cube SOLD by AleximusPrime Hand-crafted Companion Cube SOLD by AleximusPrime
:iconportalgladosplz:: The vital apparatus vent will deliver a weighted companion cube in 3....2....1....

Yup, I made another companion cube a while back and I'm finally putting it up on eBay for auction which is hard because I really love how it turned out and would like to keep it for myself. :( Tis the life of a driven artist.

I did actually turn out better than the first and the corners are made with whiter Apoxie sculpt which I think fits better. Everything else is Sculpey clay and the hearts were painted with Apple Barrel Acrylics and it was sealed with Mod Podge. Shaped a bit more accurately than the first and the corners look more accurate. I will surely be making more of these and I'll put more on eBay too so stay tuned if you ever want one.

Follow this link to start bidding or buy it now: [link] Well that was fast! Thank you :iconrain-flopz:

Happy bidding and remember, it cannot speak and will never threaten to stab you! :3

Sweet, TBH I had no idea you even played video games.

It's kind of funny how in the end of Portal 2 (spoiler alert) GLaDOS hints some affection towards Chell, then immediately redacts it and starts talking about how she can't wait to get rid of her.
Then as you rise in that elevator an opera song written and sung by the same voice actress of GLaDOS is played by that orchestra of turrets. The theme was a mother saying goodbye to her child and missing her dearly; implying that GLaDOS was Chell's mother figure in this.

Yeah, I don't play them as much as I use to though, now it's mainly art for me.

Yeah, I think GLaDOS really misses her old friend...

Yeah, but at least I'm getting money in return for my hard work of making it. And I can always make more cubes. :nod:

So, having never played Portal, what exactly does the companion do? :?

It's just a cube and it's actually no different from plain storage cubes except it has a heart instead of the Aperture logo. It's a unique cube you only find once in the game though and everyone loves it for it's uniqueness but the AI, GLaDOS, forces you to throw it in the incinerator after you're done with the level which is sad. :(

So, it doesn't actually do anything? Do you use it to stand on or for like a weight or anything? :B Does it appear once in each level or only one particular level?

It can be used to get up some steps that you can't jump over and it also protects against incoming energy balls that kill you if you get hit by one as well as lasers and stuff. You can also use it to put on top of buttons that need to be pushed to open doors and things. There are all sorts of things you can do with it in the level but the other cubes do the same thing essentially. In the game though, the girl you play as has been testing for seemingly a long time and has no friends and no one to talk to and the cube is like your only friend. Plus, GLaDOS basically teases you by saying "Be reminded that the weighted companion cube cannot speak and will never threaten to stab you." Yeah, she's kinda weird. XD

I'm packaging it right now. The box is small but it's quite big for such a little thing but it will be well protected in all the bubble wrap and plastic bags surrounding it. I'm going to have them put a fragile sign on it though just in case. :nod:
