Had been debating posting this here for a while and it has been done for a really long time now, but ultimately I decided that I would like to share it here.

So this piece is a long time coming because I saw all the badger versions of JackSepticEye back on April 1st and was really inspired by them but was unsure of what I wanted to depict him in until he did his first video for "The Lab" from Valve on the HTC Vive Virtual Reality.

I am not great with doing human faces so I decided to depict him as a badger with Septic Sam as a Personality Core while he took a break and played with the balloon machine [which I simplified]. I figured with the multiverse that Portal introduced for their Perpetual Testing initiative in Portal 2 would be good way to depict Jack as a Badger and still have it make sense. I also noticed a lot of fan art for Jack was mostly portraits and the like, but I wanted a full scene related to one of the games he played and "The Lab" gave me the perfect opportunity for it.

I hope you all enjoy this piece of fan art [I am still am self conscious for this stuff x.x ]
