Read, said the chick!  
This is a really special fic, y'all: the wonderful elwarre has written a tony, subtly surreal coming-of-age-ish AU for the spnaufestival called "Go, said the bird." I just love it! The setting, the sweetness, the boys doing the very best they can ... it's just lovely! Featuring Dean, Benny, Sam and a smattering of other, interestingly cast SPN characters. Thanks for you patience, Elwarre; you're awesome. And big congrats on publishing! :D

they look so young here! Aww.
Love the shading. And Sam needs a cookie and cocoa!

Hee! He absolutely does. PUBERTY, yanno?

Thank you again for creating such gorgeous art for this! I feel so incredibly lucky to have been paired up with you for this project. I can't stop staring at SAMMMM

ME NEITHER. IT'S A THING. (Thanks for your amazing patience! This is a fabulous story; I have to read it again...)

Benny looks so handsome!!! Sam and Dean are pretty as usual!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on April 12th, 2015 11:46 pm (UTC)
It was actually kinda fun to look for young Ty Olsson pics. He was quite the chunkster! He actually looks a lot more handsome now...

Oooh you de-aged Benny beautifully! I'm dead curious as to why Sam and Dean look so worried/haunted and Benny so happy...
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on April 12th, 2015 11:48 pm (UTC)
One word: John. (This story is pretty hard on John, but it's a complete AU. I don't see it with a whole lot of relationship to the John we know on the show.) I have a LOT of sympathy for the show's John, btw! Just a forewarning if you read the fic...

And thank you!
Amberamberdreams on April 13th, 2015 08:48 am (UTC)
Aha! Ok then, no problem. There are not many fics that are willing to give John much sympathy so I'm inured to it now, even though personally I like him. In of the school of thought that he was in a tough spot, doing the best he could.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on April 13th, 2015 10:49 am (UTC)
That's my take on John too. He was traumatized. He did what he did to cope!

Beautiful banner, I love the whole composition of the bird and the rough lettering. Very cool. The portraits are great, I especially like the troubled look on Sam's face. Good stuff.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on April 12th, 2015 11:49 pm (UTC)
Thank ya! ♥

These are divine. Really love your textures and lines - also the bird silhouette with the three, that is awesome, always dig your layouts <3
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on April 12th, 2015 11:49 pm (UTC)
Thanks, Becc! I had a lot of fun with Kyle's Watercolor tools...
becc_jbecc_j on April 13th, 2015 10:58 pm (UTC)
oh cool! I saw he updated that brush pack with even more watercolour brushes.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on April 14th, 2015 04:49 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I downloaded them but haven't played with the new ones yet. Will do that today! :D
Silviasillie82 on April 12th, 2015 10:06 pm (UTC)
Love these. What you did with the banner is awesome. :D
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on April 12th, 2015 11:49 pm (UTC)
Thanks, lovely! :D

These are gorgeous! I loved how you de-aged all three characters (it's not that often you see younger Benny and you did an awesome job); Sam is yummy with that scowl and Dean with his freckles.

The banner is wonderful, I love how you used the cut out of the bird, and how you've positioned all the portraits.

Will definitely check out the fic. Thank you for sharing these, they're beautiful :)
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on April 14th, 2015 04:50 pm (UTC)
Younger Benny was a bit of a challenge, because the actor was quite stout in his earlier days and I Benny wasn't in this story. It was fun! And thank you, lovely!
