It's not really meant to have alot of stuff in it, but, mostly, if you've played Half-Life, the rooms in the game are destroyed mostly and you can crawl through air vents.

The guy that is dead there has chains holding him up, if you wondered.

 

C&C would be very helpful, as this is my first one ever.

Looks great and great subject. I would deepen the floor color a little bit cuz its too contrasted with the walls. Also the left wall needs to be a shade lighter than the right wall to follow the upper right lightsource used in the Joint. The dark grey line where the walls meet is not needed. I would also recolor the black line where the floor meets the wall with the dark grey. The fellows legs seem chopped to oddly try a rounded line to show depth and bring in some of the lighter red to make the blood shiny. The same goes for the water on the floor.

EDIT: typos

I will be adding Gordon Freeman, I jsut didn't know what else to add, so, I didn't want to put him in. I also had the G-Man in a window on the right wall, but, took him out becase the window was horrible.

 

I'll be adding some headcrabs or zombies.

 

Thanks for the comments.

Nice. I think some more contrast on the shading would be better... the orange parts of Gordon's HEV suit in particular.

Right now the air vent looks a little strange... is it supposed to be an open or closed one?
If it's supposed to be closed, I think you should make it look more like this.
For an open one, you should add depth, so it doesn't just look like a darker coloured sqaure pasted on the wall.

Good luck :)

Yeah the floor is far too bright for the rest of the piece so far, and i think the water looks out of perspective. Perhaps also bring the saturation of the orange down a bit.

Thanks for the comments.

The vent is open, but I'll add alittle more to it.

Yeah, now that I look at it, Gordon's suit is somewhat bright, and I think I did forget to shade it.

The floor's too bright? Well, I kinda just played Half Life, and took the floor colors compared to the walls, and the walls are cement-ish, while the floors are tile, so, if you think I should, I'll make the tiles darker. :)

 

Weapons so soon? I'll see if I can even make them. I'll maybe add a crowbar on the floor.
