iconic creature from Half-Life

I grew up playing Valve’s epic Half-Life, and I have many fond memories of this video game. Maybe not of the headcrabs in particular, but they are iconic and seemed like a fun thing to paint. It was. I planned on adding blood splatters, but that was in 2010 so it’s probably not going to happen. I love it as is.

This was actually going to be part of a Valve art series, which never happened, but still sounds like a blast.
