Drawing Dystopia...  
I had the great pleasure of working with geckoholic and petite_madame on a D/C Dystopia Bang, revealed today! PM and I were co-artists (here's her glorious art masterpost.) They were both real treats to work with; show them love! The story is grim and pretty, as are the artstuffs. (My images aren't really spoilery for the fic and generally work safe.) Happy V-Day, babies! ♥

The final scene:

(Paintings: digital PS7, drawing: graphite on paper, tweaked digitally. No photorefs for drawing, screencaps for painting.)

Enjoy, my sunshines! And DO read the fic; it's quite lovely. As always, comments (both flattery and crit) are welcomed with great adoration and appreciation.

I love the gold hue you chose for the poster and the drawing of the final scene is absolutely fantastic!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on February 15th, 2012 12:11 am (UTC)
Aw, thanks! The colors were a lot of trial and error, so that means a lot!

Even though I don't ship D/C, THE PWEEEEETTY!!!!!!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on February 14th, 2012 07:49 pm (UTC)
I don't ship it either, and I always wonder WHY I sign up for these things! I get all caught up in the excitement. ;) But it turned out to be a really lovely story (though I actually haven't read the finished product; I should go back and do that.)

Thanks for stopping by, bb! Hope all is well with you! *snurgles*

The poster is especially gorgeous - love the coloring!
(is this what your graphics card was gving you trouble with? glad it cooperated!)
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on February 14th, 2012 08:12 pm (UTC)
Yeah, this was the one. For some reason, I was starting to get all sorts of jpg artifacts. Fortunately, it was simply a monitor setting but my old machine has NOT been at 100% lately. I'm just waiting for the other shoe to drop... :(

Loooviinngg the gold look <333 totally going to save the Dean icon for future use :D
Gosh, it's such a movie poster, it's gorgeous!
Love the final scene as well, Dean pouring coffee in his underwear, teehee /o/
Not a D/C reader, but loving the art, obviously!

Read this one, the D/C is very minimal, barely there really. And it is a beautifully written sad story...

I beta'd this fic last night - and loved it for it's amazing imagery. I just knew you'd do it justice... Such a melancholy, sad fic and you've managed to achieve that feel in your work, even though you've used all those awesome warm colours. It's very much a sunset not a sunrise, isn't it - for the end of the world.

Now off to see what petite_madame has created! Such a plethora of delights! :D
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on February 15th, 2012 12:15 am (UTC)
Hey, cool! I really thought the fic was lovely and tender and sad without being all "Waaaaaah!"

Okay, so I've gushed about this via email already, but it bears repeating: AMAZING, and so very much in tune with the mood I had in mind for the story! And the drawing for the final scene is so wonderful. :D

It's been both a pleasure and and honor to work with you, THANK YOU! ♥
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on February 15th, 2012 12:16 am (UTC)
Hey, you earned it! It's a thoroughly lovely story! ❤

Very nice!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on February 15th, 2012 12:16 am (UTC)
Thanks, ma'am! :D

Oh wow. The poster and the drawing are beautiful. I love the colours, the yellows and oranges make everything seem so warm and give it such a great feeling.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on February 15th, 2012 12:18 am (UTC)
Aw, thanks! (My favorite part is actually the dust motes in the air; took me forEVer to get them the way I wanted! Isn't that just silly?!)

I know I've said this a trillion times (or at least it feels like I have) but I LOVE your (no photo ref!?) Sam. OMNOMNOMNOM.

I am still getting to know my tablet. I can sketch but something about sketching and not looking WHERE I'm sketching ... irks me.

/*jealous*
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on February 21st, 2012 06:03 pm (UTC)
Yeah, that damned kitchen scene drove me nuts. It SUCKS to have this vision in your head and you can't find photoref for the poses so you make it up and they end up looking weird and stiff and *flails*!

It took me aaaaages to learn to draw with my hand out to one side, looking at the monitor. I still chafe at it and many days, I just sketch on paper then scan it in and go from there. Painting with a tablet is much more comfortable for me than drawing. However, the ability to tweak proportions is AWESOME when working digitally. It's a love/hate thing.

The cover is lovely and dramatic looking, with the gorgeous colours, and Dean's beautiful emotional profile. I'm going to be a bad spn fan, tho, and say my favourite part is the stunning sunrise and the grasses in sillhuette.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on February 21st, 2012 06:04 pm (UTC)
That's not being a bad fan! :D I don't do many landscapes and it was a real challenge so THANK YOU!

Gorgeous art!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on February 21st, 2012 06:04 pm (UTC)
Thank ya!

Gorgeous work hun, I love the burnt oranges in the poster and the grass looks awesomely dramatic! :DDD
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on February 21st, 2012 06:05 pm (UTC)
Grass is fun. Huh-huh. ;) (Thank you, bb!)
