Summary: Okay, here's what was happening in my brainplace during the evolution of this painting: remote cabin the boys knew as youngsters, snowed in or decidedly hiding out, Dean went out for 'x' and didn't come back, Sam found him...
A/N: Worked on this FAR to long. Still things I'd like to tweak. Oh, well. Was hearing Mumford & Sons' "Timshel" throughout. There ya go! Break out yer hankies.

Wow, my heart skipped a beat. This is absolutely beautiful and so heartbreaking but there's hope. Gah. Gorgeous.

Aw, thanks! As I was painting, I almost had to wonder if Dean was still...alive...but I leave that up to the hopes of the viewer! :D

The detail is just phenomenal! The hair! The facial hair! And most importantly- The EYES!!

Sam has that intense melancholy going on, and Dean is clearly frozen- though I think he'll thaw soon enough, but will the thawing be in time? Wonderful as usual!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on August 7th, 2011 07:02 pm (UTC)
Hair...mmmmm...and I love Sad!Sam. Hell, I love Any!Sam, though Dean's skin was a dream to paint!

GOD, THAT IS BEAUTIFUL, CRIS!! HOLY...WOW!

i should just copy paste the above comment into everything you do. sorry. ^_^;

Sammy's eyes are absolutely STUNNING and all their hair, the stubble, their skin tones, the background! WOW!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on August 7th, 2011 07:03 pm (UTC)
I have to admit, you nailed my two favorite parts: the skin and Sam's eyes. And beards... :D

There is something very classic and marvellous about this painting. Like something out of Rambrandt. It seriously gave me shivers.

Very well done! I love the softness of the light and the almost greenish tone of the blanket reflecting on Dean's pale skin making him seem more dead than alive, and the amulet, low-key and just hanging there in the background, but shinning hot with the fire like a beacon of hope... just wonderful piece.

Thank you for the work you've put into this!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on August 7th, 2011 08:23 pm (UTC)
What a nice comment! Thank you SO much for taking the time. I want more amulet in my life! Like...more cowbell. ;)

Amazing!

(And considering I've just been watching The Day After Tomorrow - cold!)

Dean can't be dead - there's too much life in those eyes :)
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffin: WtWiB Impalaquickreaver on August 7th, 2011 08:26 pm (UTC)
It's so darned hot, here, I needed the chill! But you're right; Dean's still alive. I think. Sure! Fabulous user pic, btw. :D )

*hands out hankies* Thanks! :D
Samibeesamibee on August 7th, 2011 10:20 pm (UTC)
Oh wow, this is gorgeous! I love the lighting, with the subtle glow of the firelight on the side of Dean's face and beard, so lovely. And Sam's got kind of a Jesus thing going on, lol.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on August 7th, 2011 11:40 pm (UTC)
Hmmm! Isn't there a comm for that? Why, yes, there is! sammessiah :D Though I'm not sure that's what you meant...

Thanks for the kind words!

*glares at you*

He is not crying because Dean is dead, OK? He is crying because Dean is very, very cold and Sam doesn't like it when Dean is not warm. But soon Dean will be warm and Sam will stop crying.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Gorgeous!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on August 7th, 2011 11:45 pm (UTC)
Yes, ma'am! And thank you! *saaaaalute*

OMG it's one of the most fantastic pieces I've ever seen! +_+ I love how you painted their faces, the blanket, and the highlights. The background is also very detailed, and the framing makes me even colder! *shivers*

Poor Dean looks so pale! But he's still alive and Sam should warm him up! ^^ Great work!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on August 7th, 2011 11:49 pm (UTC)
Oh my gosh, are you kidding? Thank you! That's very sweet, coming from you...you, who can paint Dean and Cas (and everyone) like nobody's business.

Dean is beauteous when he's pale. I think. And the boys have beards...Show, please give them beards. For me?

Stupendous! Your Sam here has a look of Aragorn from LOTR too with that scrummy nearly beard. Love the contrast between his vibrant tanned skin and Dean's deathly cold white. You have me swinging between seeing him as dead already, within a breath of dying or maybe starting to recover in the warmth of the cabin and Sam's embrace....

Actually, now I've thought and looked a bit more - Dean can't be dead yet because Sam is not usually a OPT sort of guy!

The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on August 8th, 2011 02:16 pm (UTC)
Hey, he DOES look a little Aragorn-y, doesn't he? And I never really thought about the OPT thing, but you're SO right...when Sammy cries, he effin' bawls! So Dean must be alive. Must be. Right? :D
