Okay okay, enough gushing. Check out her Meant To Be fic Perfect (For You). It truly is the perfect little Harlequin-esque beach read! You'll thank me later. Just go. Read. It's adorbs! Trust me.
Anywho, here's the art I arted for it. It was a delight to work with JC, and I wish I'd have done more for her because there were so many cute scenes, but as per usual, I over-scheduled and procrastinated and, well. There you have it. ME.
~Here's the banner/poster. I was really happy with it, actually! I've been fiddling with coming up with a line-work style that I can depend on, and it's getting easier (if not easy.) Working photorealistically all the time is TAXING! And it takes me bloody forever. Also, you can be more whimsical and take more liberties when you're not stuck with making things "realistic" but opt for "believable" instead. MARKED difference!

Done completely in CS6, watercolor texture on background, refs used. You might recognize Jensen's posture for one of the Vancon pics? (I think it was Vancon...) Jared's pose came from generic stock photos and my eldest son.
~Boys only. I LOVED their little faces and expressions! This is what's fun about working on schmoopy pieces. :D
(Again, click to embiggen.)
~And then I did simple dividers with the font, no big. Lastly, the end scene. So if you wanna remain unspoiled, DO NOT PROCEED. AVERT THINE EYES. But honestly, it's a romance in the most traditional sense of the word. What did you think was gonna happen in the last scene, huh?
(Drawn with pencil on paper, colored digitally.)
And that's it! Now, if you haven't read Perfect (For You), what're you waiting for?? And engraved invitation?
