God's Holy Tax Accountant  
Over on tumblr, one of our talented fandom ran a "Draw Misha Day" yesterday to honor herself (hey, why not?) and dear Misha's day of berf. So if you wanna roll in All Things Cas, head on over thar. Here's my tumblr where you can link to the Misha thing.

And give a listen to this song: The Man Who Played God. Reminds me SO much of our sweet, misguided Cas.

laughing, I was just browsing tumblr and discovered this! (I've almost caved and may get one of those things myself, but I'm still resisting. I'm distracted enough.)
I love it, love the idea with the blind shadows!

Totally stole the image from a screencap, but I DO so love the blind shadows too. Very noir! I love/hate tumblr because it does suck up precious minutes and sometimes it can get a little, I don't know, contentious? Bickering about "I hate what Sera Gamble is doing to the show" and nutso arguments about this character vs. that character. So childish. I blow by that stuff. It’s a further waste of time…

Oh wow. This is so incredibly amazing. It's like those drawings I used to stare at as a child that made me wish I had a pencil and only half of the artists talent.

And my friends always said pencil drawings were boring...
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on August 22nd, 2011 06:29 pm (UTC)
I SO miss picking up a pencil but digital is far too practical in this day and age. And God love the "undo" function! ;)

Aha! Glad you fixed the link as this is beautiful. Love the light and shade, and you've caught Misha's intense Cas stare marvellously.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on August 22nd, 2011 07:13 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I found catching his likeness more difficult than expected. Guess I need more practice. DARN. ;)

I am completely exclaiming in amazement here! That's one of the best portraits EVER! Did you use a photograph base and work over it? I'm in awe!

Now I want to draw Cas too. With my pitiful skilz. :P

The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on August 22nd, 2011 07:55 pm (UTC)
I used a grainy photo from one of those SPN magazines, drew it freehand with some squinting and pencil-measuring, old-school. ;) I come from a traditional-media background but BOY am I rusty! I've always loved doing portraits, though. Now, perspective? WHOLE 'nother ball of wax, there. Perspective does me in, every time. Which is way I'm doing full scenes for my S&DOTP challenge. To force me to work on it. We shall see...

Gah, you are amazing:D, love it! And I followed the links, so many great Castiel fanarts, so fun to see!!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on August 22nd, 2011 07:52 pm (UTC)
I almost didn't do it, for lack of time, but I'm glad I did it anyway because BOY do I need the drawing practice! Lotsa fun Mishas, too... :D

Guh, this is amazing. *____* I've been itching to do traditional portraits again, and seeing this, so wonderful and full of feeling, well, it certainly lends the inspiration. <3
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on August 22nd, 2011 10:38 pm (UTC)
Yay! Get inspired! Inspiration is my drug; it's the BEST THING EVER! I'm totally hooked on it. :D

Really good. The eyes and the shadows make it arresting.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on August 23rd, 2011 01:53 pm (UTC)
Cool! I was hoping the shadows read right, espeically the blind stripes. :D
Hope: See right through youhopeintheashes on August 23rd, 2011 12:08 am (UTC)
Oh my goodness, this is gorgeous. I keep trying to write an intelligent comment, but I can't... stop... staring. Beautiful! Most certainly does him justice.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on August 23rd, 2011 01:54 pm (UTC)
I haven't drawn many Misha/Cas portraits. He's got a really interesting face. Hell, they ALL do!

Lol, draw Misha day? BUT ... eh, who cares why - THIS IS GORGEOUS!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on August 23rd, 2011 01:54 pm (UTC)
I know, right? :D Thanks! I had to get him out of my system, and now back to business as usual. ;)
