I'm wondering if rebels hung this up during the Uprising.

This is very good design-wise... perhaps it would be better in the green and orange colours of Half-Life 2?

Since the first game...? Remember when the headcrabs and vortigaunts teleported in, as well as much of the enviroment lighting? It was all green. Vats of radioactive waste, pools of unknown chemicals on Xen, there was an untold amount of green in the first Half-Life. In Half-Life 2 it's not so prevalent, but it is still present in the undertones.

Neat icon, by the way.

Green in HL is obviously meant to represent Xen stuff and radioactive waste.Otherwise other promo materials features orange and silver (except OpFor and Blue Shift).

Freeman's hand or maybe crowbar should be orange/red while the citadel should be blue ; the background can remain gray.

BTW are you mocking my avatar ?

Well, like I said, green is still present in the undertones, to help add to the feeling of unease. Especially when something tough is coming up, like the hunter-chopper (or whatever it was called, I'm not good with names. D: ) and the antlion kings, as well as a few other things.

Also, if you look down, I did admit that blue played a major role in Half-Life 2. :D

As for your avatar, I think it's cool. x3 I see some pretty weird recolourings of various Pokémon, but yours seems pretty original, not to mention well-done. The shading has remained for one, which most people seem to be incapable of accomplishing. I just think it could use a little reworking, interpolation was not very nice to it. :)

If it's any consolation, my poster for the first Half-Life has plenty of orange and green: [link]

That is, indeed, quite green, but should you decide to colour this one, a touch of blue added to the traditional orange and green would probably make it feel closer to the more modern setting of Half-Life 2. the combine areas have heavy use of blue, and the supercharged Gravity Gun is practically bursting with blue, as well.

I've been looking for a replacement background on my iPod.
