It's the end of the world as we know it...  
...and I feel fiiiiine.

Or at least that's the theme of a delicious fic that the equally delicious akintay wrote for my j2_reversebang submission! akintay was a delight to work with, and I can't recommend her fic enough. The art is mildly spoilery, but not a plot killer, so proceed gingerly if you're an ardent spoilerphobe.

Title: The End is Here
Other Pairing(if applicable): n/a
Rating: PG for the art
Media: digital
Warnings/Spoilers: mild spoilers, no real warnings except maybe smoking?
Summary: Ever since the virus started spreading and the infected starting roaming the country, Jared has been living on the streets, trying his best to survive. Living in the nearby camp of survivors might be easier, except dealing with people can be more difficult than dealing with infected—especially when one of those people is Jensen. After all, getting involved gives you more to lose.

I tried to be a teensy bit more "cartoony" in the spot illustrations, to mediocre success, but it was more fun than fretting every detail, every ratio! However, I think likenesses suffered. OH WELL. I still enjoyed myself. ME ME ME. ;D Click the first two images to enlarge in their own window.

Ooooh, your art plus zombie apocalypse! :D Plus, that sounds like an amazing premise. I don't know what you'r complaining about, it looks fantastic.

The fic is just lovely...its not easy or logical, but feels real. *hearts in eyes* Thank you, bb!

I love the art especially the hands. m :)
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffin: WEEEEEE!quickreaver on December 9th, 2016 06:35 pm (UTC)
Aw, neat! I needed a little something to cap off the fic, and hands are always expressive. :D Thanks!

SO. GORGEOUS. I loved your art even in its unfinished state at claims time, but with the colors?? And looking all for the world like a badass movie poster? I love it so so much. <3 And the little illustrations that you added to put in the story, too! I like how you kept them sort of sepia. Definitely feels in line with a zombie apocalypse. Fantastic art, as always!! <3

Thanks, babe! *smoooch!*

Cigarette smoking Sam gets right under my skin in the best way--I freaking love the way you draw him, makes me just hum all over inside! :D
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffin: WEEEEEE!quickreaver on December 9th, 2016 06:36 pm (UTC)
Smoking IRL? Not so much, but in fic and art? GIVE IT ALL TO ME. Hee! Thank you, lady!

Thank you! (I love Jared's hair too. It's a curse. ;))

The indefatigable Mrs. Griffin: WEEEEEE!quickreaver on December 9th, 2016 06:37 pm (UTC)

Love the art! Makes me want to read the story!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffin: WEEEEEE!quickreaver on December 9th, 2016 06:38 pm (UTC)
I think you'd dig it, B. Give it a whirl! It's not your typical zombie apocalypse at all. That's just the setting. The story is the PEOPLE, which yaaaasssssss...

It's really sweet!
Amber: Bumamberdreams on December 8th, 2016 07:30 am (UTC)
Mmm Sammy's hair is very long... *happy sigh*. Love the way you've done it illustrative and not realistic (is illustrative even a word??)
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffin: WEEEEEE!quickreaver on December 9th, 2016 06:40 pm (UTC)
Illustrative is absolutely a word, hee! I've been digging working this way for fandom, because I don't often (if ever, really) get hired to do it for "pro" work. It's super satisfying!

*Do excuse me - I'm still hyperventilating over Sam's hair!!!*

So much love for this (and I can't wait to read the fic - I adore akintay's work!!) I love all the little details you included like the holes in the shirts, Jensen's tattoo, the cigarette, and the slight curl to Jared's long locks (which are just so squeeful!!!). The hands are beautiful and I love the freckles. Your muted colour palette is in line with the subject material, and gives a sort of sombre feel that I adore.

As always your work is supurb, and I won't hear you say anything negative about it all, it's simply glorious!!! Take care my friend ♥

The indefatigable Mrs. Griffin: WEEEEEE!quickreaver on December 9th, 2016 06:41 pm (UTC)
OMG, you will looooove the fic. I KNOW YOU. :D :D :D

(Thank you, lovely! *purrs against*)

Absolutely amazing artwork. You really did a terrific job.
The hands are exquisitely done.
I like the banner with both of them in it, I think you captured Jared's side profile really well.
Thanks for sharing.
*hugs*

Thank YOU for leaving such a lovely comment! :D

THIS IS SO GORGEOUS!!! Ohhhh, in that first picture, Jensen in Jared's arms. Jensen's hair and his EARS are so perfect, and his closed eyes, and his smattering of freckles and his arm and hand!! And just a few wisps of Jared's hair over his arm. And Jared's profile and his bone structure: SO PERFECT!!! Also: Jensen's nose is amazing. It seems like it would be quite hard to draw a good nose from this angle, and it looks perfect. XD

You are so talented!!!!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffin: WEEEEEE!quickreaver on December 9th, 2016 06:43 pm (UTC)
Holy crap, Jensen's nose is HARD. I've sorta come up with a shorthand for it that works sometimes? Sometimes doesn't. I gave up on trying to catch a likeness on this one, ha! I just tried to make 'em pretty but dystopian. Or something. :D

Thanks, bb! *smiiiiish*

Your art is beautiful, but then it always is.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffin: WEEEEEE!quickreaver on December 9th, 2016 06:44 pm (UTC)
Pffft, NOT ALWAYS, BELIEVE ME. But thank you!
