RANDOM QUOTE
It's not an endlessly expanding list of rights—the 'right' to education, the 'right' to health care, the 'right' to food and housing. That's not freedom, that's dependency. Those aren't rights, those are the rations of slavery—hay and a barn for human cattle.

Well, Scott asked and Scott shall receive.

I was telling Scott that there's a "video stress test" included with CounterStrike: Source, and in said stress test, you are walked through a cave that contains various graphical "effects" that test how well your system renders them. One of the effects tested is surface translucency wherein the camera pans across various rotating translucent polygons with varying effects like glassblock, shimmering water, etc. One of these polygons in particular piqued my interest, a religious looking stained glass interpretation of Our Saviour of Black Mesa, Gordon Freeman, crowbar in hand.

Well, Scott asked for a few screenies and he, along with anyone else who cares, can snatch them up too. I'd love to say that they're perfect for desktop wallpapers and the like, but seeming as the camera is panning sideways and the polygon in question is rotating, there was really only two distinct times that it was actually facing you squarely, and those angles really aren't conducive to using the images for any aesthetic reasons. Maybe one day someone will make a HL2 map with the sole purpose of putting this image in an environment that lends itself more to taking eye pleasing screengrabs, but until then, this is all you get.
