Welcome to Aperture Laboratory, a fan group dedicated to Valve's Portal series! If you are an avid fan, please join the group! Any and all supporters of Portal are welcome here!
Rules and Regulations!
Code of Conduct
Like any other club, we encourage politeness and don't tolerate any spam and haters, be it in the front page or in personal messages to other members (agent47crows: although we're not gonna check your private messages, no no!). A warning will be given on the first offense. In short, just be nice and respect your fellow Portal fans (agent47crows: you monster)!
Here at Aperture Laboratory, we are open to pretty much any form of Portal fan art, be it Garrys Mod or fan fiction. Just make sure to add the appropriate mature filter on your deviation if necessary. Although we have a folder for doodles and sketches, we strongly encourage you to share your best work!
For both favorite suggestions and the group gallery, please submit your art to the correct folder. Art in the featured folder will be picked exclusively by administrators.
You must be a member to submit work into the gallery, and the limit is 3 deviations per day.
Admins are required to vote whether the art should be added to the gallery. In most cases, it should be accepted with no problems within a day or so. In the off chance that your deviation sits in limbo for more than a week, re-submit it.
In the rare case when we decide that something may be too explicit (e.g. violence, sex) to be showcased in the gallery, the artwork will either be declined or requested to add the 18+ mature content filter.
There are some things that we won't tolerate, however. Aperture Laboratories does not endorse plagiarism in any way. Gmod aside, we do not like submissions of images which belong to someone else. Blatantly taking an official picture from Portal and putting a filter over it, for example, is prohibited.
Nor do we accept work that is submitted by someone other than the original artist. We understand that there are a lot of awesome Portal fan art outside of the Deviant Art community, but it is the artist's choice whether he or she makes an account and posts it here. To summarize: don't steal other people's art, or you will be sent to the Redemption Line!
To prevent cluttering in the Literature folders, we will only be accepting the first chapter of a multi-part story.
The gallery will be periodically reorganized. Submissions with the following qualities will be archived in the Doodles section:
