In Small Packages: SAM NEEDS A DOG!  
A teensy bit late, if you're in certain places in the world, but it's cute! Won't we all forgive the cute? The request: "Supernatural drawble: Sam drinking coffee, warming his bare feet by resting them on the dog." I couldn't resist.

Aww this is so sweet. I love the entire atmosphere around it with the dog, and discarded boots, and steam coming from the coffee.

DOGS. YESSSSSSS. Not nearly enough canines in fanart. :) And this dog is suitably, Sammably massive. I adore his(?) snoozy, content expression. Also? Sam's shoulders, holy God. Ninth wonder of the world, that. Most excellent job, lady! ♥

Also-also! Beautiful use of white space! It's like Sam and doggy are isolated in a bubble of quiet calm.

What type of paper is that? Interesting texture . . . (Or is that a digital texture you've added?)

. . . I'll shut up now. :)

Never shut up! *basks in your comment*

It's all digital! But I have a PS brush that makes a great pencil-like stroke, and then I just put a scan of marble (in this case) underneath it. I was gonna do traditional pencil, but I'd already doodled digitally and it was just easier, if not necessarily quicker. (My new computer is actually a big touch-screen, so I couldn't lay a piece of paper on the monitor and do a quick trace of my rough draft.)

Thanks, Deb!

that is the hairiest, warmest-looking dog. also, appropriately sam-sized. :D and hey, sam actually looks kind of happy! how often does that happen? this is just all over cozy and sweet.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on January 7th, 2015 02:36 pm (UTC)
I've been torturing Sam an awful lot lately; this prompt let me pa,per him for a change! :D Thanks bunches!

I am not a dog person. (Small ones annoy me, larger than small... scare me... Except for Rototillers, you don't want to know.) Anyhoo, with all this in mind... I seriously want to cuddle Marshmallow. (He's not colored or named, so I am picturing him white, fluffy, and as soft as a marshmallow.) Wonderful job.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on January 7th, 2015 02:37 pm (UTC)
Hee! I love that you named the dog! Totally works.

Thank ya!

Adorable! I love the details, that couch looks so comfy and the boots and steaming mug and huge fluffy dog (which looks amazing, drawing animals is hard) all look so cozy, not to mention Sam relaxing for once <3
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on January 7th, 2015 03:02 pm (UTC)
I don't draw many animals AT ALL. If I have to imagine a monster... I'm toast!

Yay for relaxing!Sam! We all need this every once in a while. :D Thanks, Becc. ❤️

Aw Sammy looks so thin and tired...but at least his feet are warm, hey?

The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on January 7th, 2015 03:00 pm (UTC)
His feet are SUPER A+ MOST EXCELLENT warm! (I couldn't see him looking thin and tired until you mentioned it; it's his face, I realized! Dern it, should've gotten a beta! I just wanted him to seem peaceful. But it's cool! That's what I get for procrastinating.)

Sam and a dog in one picture, what could you ask for more!
I love the peaceful feeling, and it's like Sam just walked his dog in the snow :)
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on January 7th, 2015 02:56 pm (UTC)
Yes, that's a GREAT narrative! I can totally see them romping through the snow, all those legs and hair. :D

Awwww, yes yes yes. Sam looks relaxed and content. *happy sigh* Love it. <3


*glomps* on you

We need more cute in this fandom! Don't get me wrong I absolutely adore sad, dark, angsty, heartbreaking, and worn down fanworks, but sometimes you need a cute Sam with a cute fluffy dog, sitting in a comfy armchair enjoying his coffee, because...reasons!!

I love the serenity of this, there's a lovely calming feel to it. And Sam looks happy and content in enjoying the simpler things in life. I love all the details like the discarded boots, the blanket over the arm of the chair, the steam of the coffee and Sam's lovely hair and that half smile. And the dog really suits Sam too (that sounds weird but I hope you know what I mean!)

This is adorable! It give me the happiest of happy feels! Thank you :)

You always give the BEST comments! Thank YOU! ❤️

That was my wish, and this is a thing of beauty. What a wonderful dog. I love its bigness and its fluffiness and its benign expression. And Sam with his dog and his coffee and his (plaid!) throw and that little contented smile on his face, and his old, beat-up, on-the-job boots that he gets to shed and forget about for a while.

Sam definitely needs a dog.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on January 7th, 2015 02:53 pm (UTC)
I had a feeling this was yours! I'm glad I was right, and I'm glad you dig it. Even though I adore Sam in all of his colors, Happy Sam is rare and transcending thing. It is!

We all need Sam to have a dog, sometimes.

❤️

Oh, that's gorgeous, nothing warms your feet better than a big hairy dog and nothing warms the heart more than a beautiful drawing, thank you.

Awww, I bet you couldn't resist that prompt, and I'm glad you didn't! SO CUTE, and you expressed so much with it. I looooove this; it makes me want to be sitting there with them, sipping coffee of my own, and I would reach over to pet... the dog, yeah. The dog. ;-)
