Art for 'Mission Voyager', J2_SPN Big Bang!  
I had the delight to work with the most bubbly, adorable author, soulmatecest, AND work on light scifi art! I was really feeling the AUs this year, and lucky as hell to nab this one: Mission: Voyager

Please to be reading this lovely, lovely fic!

I was inspired by a bunch of gorgeous images my author sent me--of amazing violet night skies--and the covers of the comic "Invisible Republic", as well as a bunch of men's fashion pics for the garb (thank you, pinterest!) and this stock photo for the drawing:

I had my teen sons hold hands as ref for the cover image...boy, are they troopers. They even laughed and asked, "Is this for Wincest, MOM?" (They're 16 and 18; they're well aware of fandom, ha!) For the record, they didn't care. They know it's all make-believe. And they also don't care if men hold hands. Kids of artists...bless 'em.

Gorgeous, gorgeous art, WOW!! I absolutely adore the details in the title piece - the little holes and rips in Sam's shirt are perfect. And the sketch is powerful and really cool. You are amazing!

THANK YOU for the largeness (was the comment aimed at me? LOL) because I totally missed that they were holding hands in the smaller version. Plus I love the textures on the mountains - I wish I was bold enough to use brushes like that. The colours are gorgeous too, and the glowy text, but my fave is the pencil sketch with Jared's torn clothing and Jensen's frown.

Is it just me or have you done their faces differently to how you usually draw them?

Oh and also I meant to ask - when you use your boys to create the pose, do you sketch them from life or take a photo then work from that? The reason I'm asking is selfish - if you did sketches I'd love to see 'em!

Love all the details -- Jared's torn sweater, the ribbing around his wrist, his torn and frayed jeans and boots, all in contrast with Jensen's newer clothes. And Jared's profile is so perfect I can't stop staring! I'm definitely looking forward to reading the story!

aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh so beautiful! The bottom drawing is to die for, and I'm in love with the coloring you used for the poster. You are perfect, WHATEVER.

p.s. so happy you go to work with my adorable muffin soulmatecest!

You are killing me with your art!!!!! I mean damn, the colours on the top image, with the luminous sky, the holding hands, the difference in the quality of the their clothes, and how slender Jared looks.

I absolutely adore the sketch - Jensen's concern as looks down at unconscious Jared, the pose, Jared's hair (you always give good hair!!! ;) and just the beautiful texture and how you've used the white and black space.

I can't wait to read this fic!!!! Thank you for sharing your stunning art! Take care my friend :)

A) "Is this for Wincest, MOM?" - OMG I love your children, bahaha. Day = made. (On that note, I'd be very interested in hearing how they came to learn of Wincest. Are they in fandom themselves, or did you, like, discuss it with them, or...? However it came about, it sounds a bit like a parenting win to me.)
B) Gorgeous, gorgeous art! I really really love the banner especially. Stars are kind of my favorite ❤
C) Looking forward to the story! :)

Niiiiiice :D Your art rocks as usual, and that sky is gorgeous. The addition of your sons modeling hand-holding for wincest is hilarious.

Dying over "Is this for Wincest, MOM?" Your family rocks.

Man, the header is beyond gorgeous. The first thing I thought was "they are so tall and beautiful!" and then I started noticing all the details—the large format is truly a gift. The colors! The texture! The ridges of the mountains! Their stupid handholding! Waaa I'm so excited to read the fic :D

I always look forward to squeeing over your artwork and you have done, yet again, magnificent pieces. I love the violet sky and purple tone throughout. And I'm happy to see your boys are okay with Wincest :) I look forward to reading the story.

Absolutely gorgeous art work, each piece is stunning. I really love the colouring of the banners and the drawing of Jensen carrying Jared is amazing.

Thanks so much for sharing.

This is amazing! I am so impressed someone could draw something so mind-blowingly beautiful! I mean all the details on the mountains, on their clothes.... The way the light is reflecting on them. And the colors are so beautiful.
Everything is absolutely amazing about this. You truly are a very talented artist!

Loved this art - very atmospheric and added a lot to the story!

Beautiful work! I love the coloring on the banner, and the detail of the stars behind them, like Jared's looking off into a trail of stars as if really seeing them for the first time (which, he is thanks to clear skies) and Jensen looking out as if thinking Jared is the brightest star in the galaxy (which, he does become to him!)

The sketch of Jensen holding Jared is just so endearing, the look on his face, like Jared's already got him mesmerized but he's still just that bit wary.

What an absolutely beautiful cover.
