The T-Shirt...  
So I claimed this simple little fic in the quicky_bang, and at first blush, it seems ominous. At second blush? IT'S DELICIOUSLY HEART-BREAKING! So of course I had to illustrate it.



Safe for work, spoilery fic under cut! So READ THE FIC FIRST, PLEASE!

The T-Shirt, by the always-lovely madebyme_x





Still valiantly trying to gif! This one worked out a little better than previous attempts, heh. (I love painting wounded birds far too much.) Close-up of pretty Sammy:

AHA! This is what you were giffing!!! Well it works perfectly, and now my heart is in pieces all over again. Dammit.

BOOTIFUL.

It didn't exactly do what I wanted it to, but I wasn't quite sure what I wanted either! But it was fun fiddling with it. :D (And I love adding blood and dead skin to peeps. IT'S A CURSE.)

Do I owe you something mermaid-y in apology??

This is amazing. Now I've read the fic and had my heart broken and come back to have the pieces stomped on. The shadow effect, the sadness in his eyes, all of it. Ugh.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffin: VdayDuoquickreaver on February 28th, 2018 08:51 pm (UTC)
DAT FIC. Even though you see it coming, it still hurts so good!

The expression on Sam's face just kills me ugh!

I read this wonderful fic a while ago and it's so exciting that there's now some art to go with it. You did such a great job making this as sad as the story (again, the look on Sam's face seeing Dean ;-;) Great job with the gif too! I don't know if I prefer Sam with or without blood all over him hehe

Lovely, as always!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffin: VdayDuoquickreaver on February 28th, 2018 08:52 pm (UTC)
I don't know if I prefer Sam with or without blood all over him hehe

*whispers* Me neither...

edit: I'm not gonna stop bothering you about your dystopian S&D idea, you know. YOU KNOW THAT, RIGHT? :D

OMG I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW AWESOMELY HEARTBREAKING THIS IS!!!!! When you chose my little prompt, I was over the moon and now I'm actually looking at what you've created and it's blown up all my expectation because it's perfect. I mean PERFECT!!!! From that absolutely soul destroying look in the Sam's eyes, to Dean's silhouette, the tall trees and the starry sky, the gif that highlights Dean's profile beautifully in the torchlight, and the static image as we see bloodied Sam, but they you go and give me a hint of that red letter L on Dean's Led Zeppelin T shirt that Sam stole and I'm lost for words.

Thank you so very much for this - it's a thing of pure beauty, and I'm so excited I could burst!!!! If it's OK with you, I'll post a link in the fic to the art too. Honestly I feel so wired right now I can't focus *smishes you do darn hard*
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffin: VdayDuoquickreaver on February 28th, 2018 09:34 pm (UTC)
YES, PLEASE TAKE IT AND DO WITH IT AS YOU WILL!! I would be honored as hell! :D

I'm so glad you love it. In my mind's eye, I had this idea of what I wanted the animation to do but I don't have the smarts to figure it out yet. YET! I'll get there one day...

*smooooch!*

Thanks for posting this and leading me to the beautifully sad fic; your artwork is perfect and I love the gif with the flickering torchlight, perfect! Dean's profile is lovely and Sam's bloodied face is so sad. *sobs*
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffin: VdayDuoquickreaver on February 28th, 2018 09:35 pm (UTC)
JUST THE WAY I LIKE 'EM, BLOODY AND SAD. Thanks, lovely!

I kind of hate both of you right now--your ache-inducing art led me to the fic, which I'd somehow missed till now. I'll love you both later. As soon as my heart's over that first sharp stab. But not yet.

Oh this is just perfect and lovely and sad, just like the fic! I love the flickering flashlight and Sam's sad, forlorn face :( Thank you for making me cry (again :) Also blood...
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffin: VdayDuoquickreaver on February 28th, 2018 10:14 pm (UTC)
You're very welcome! (Thank YOU for your lovely words, too!)

Ooh, go you, giffing your art! Great job! Love the muted colors you used. <3
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffin: VdayDuoquickreaver on March 1st, 2018 04:53 pm (UTC)
Thanks, lovely! It didn't do exactly what I wanted it to, but that's just my unsurety of what I wanted to begin with!

This is more brilliant than I have words to describe!

NO YOU ARE. (Thank you! I cherish you...)

Woah, this is AWESOME! Go you and your evolving GIF-making skills, adding even more greatness to your glorious art. I don't even know how to describe that look in Sam's eyes, but it hits me right in the feels. I absolutely love the colouring with those soft dark greens and grays. Dayum, Cris, this is gorgeous.
