Into the Woods, my pretties!  
The ever-industrious and adorable reapertownusa wrote a little early-season goodie with a glorious setting for this year's samdean_otp called Into the Woods. I didn't finish nearly the amount of art I wanted, but hey, the colors are pretty, right? And Season One Sam-hair is always a joy. :D It's a fun read, so do check it!

Little Dean teaser:

Pencil on paper, digital futzing. The forest was beautiful to research!

Where are the pictures....? I want to click and embiggen but there is nothing there... :-(

Uh. LJ apparently decided to get creative with the HTML coding for the images. It should be fixed now.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on October 30th, 2012 06:36 pm (UTC)
FINALLY getting caught up with LJ!

Thanks, bb, for doctoring my stupid coding. I swear it worked the day before! *smishes*

And here's me getting caught up with LJ ;)

Don't thank me too much - I'm probably the one who broke it. While it's way better than it used to be, LJ has still been occasionally cranky with me about switching back and forth between the rich text and HTML views.

Thank you once again for the glorious art!

Honey, you have a coding mishap in there. ;)

I love these. The banner is really creative, and the illustration is gorgeous!
Reaper: Dean woodsreapertownusa on October 26th, 2012 05:21 pm (UTC)
Yes, LJ funk-itized the image coding, but it's all better so you can check out the big pretty now ;)

Already did, by copy-pasta'ing and cleaning up the links. ;D
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on October 30th, 2012 06:37 pm (UTC)
Sorry about that coding snafu! I was probably in too much of a hurry. Reaper fixed me up!

No problem, I sniffed them out anyway. ;D

Oooh it was worth the wait! Love the fudging - those colours are lovely. And I really love the leaves behind the creeper and the negative imaged leaves on the right. Of course it goes without saying - bleeding boys are gore-gious. The banner had already caught my eye with its Russian fairy tale look! Did you make up the font yourself? It's perfect for this.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on October 30th, 2012 06:43 pm (UTC)
Yay, home! Nope, I didn't make up the font but I did hand-letter it. OBVIOUSLY. I had ink-bleeding issues. Sharpies do so love to bleed. I wish I'd found more time to do other scenes but it was not to be. *sigh*

Glad you stopped by for a peek, doll!

Are you out of Sandy's reach? Hope you didn't have too much trouble getting home and that you had a fantabulous time at Chicon!
What did they make of your art work? (You did take some didn't you?)
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on October 30th, 2012 08:13 pm (UTC)
We're not getting anything unusual from Sandy, thank goodness. Tad too far inland. Had a marvie time at Chicon! But there are so many other LJ buds I wish I could've met (like yourself). Bit of a haul, though, huh? I'll do a proper write-up tonight and TRY to make it entertaining!

Teaser: Jared's response? "Wow, shit!" *squeeee!*
Amberamberdreams on October 30th, 2012 09:45 pm (UTC)
That's the sort of moment you want captured on video isn't it! I'm bouncing now :D

Yes I'd love to meet you - maybe one day I'll get back to the US or you will come over to the UK (or Italy for Jus in Bello!!)

BTW - which pic did you take in the end?
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on October 31st, 2012 03:41 pm (UTC)
I took the drawing of him with the sunglasses on his forehead; I think it was from one of the Jus in Bello cons. It was an embarrassingly lovely moment! Boy, would I loooooove to hit Italy some day! Hell, anywhere in Europe. I'm so ill-traveled. At which point OF COURSE we must meet.

It'll happen. :D
Amberamberdreams on October 31st, 2012 03:56 pm (UTC)
O that was one of my fave pics you have done as well as one of my fave Jared photos - yes it was from Rome on 2011 on that shopping trip where fans paid exorbitant sums to buy Jared clothes....go figure.

You should do a Grand Tour. You are an artist after all, it's what artists do. We have some Gainsboroughs and Turners in the Mansion here so I'm sure Suffolk could be on your list.

Love this Art Nouveau style banner, and the cagey look on Dean's face is just perfection. So well done!!!!!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on October 30th, 2012 06:45 pm (UTC)
A belated thanks! (I adore art nouveau; not sure it fit the vibe of the story...being contemporary and all...but the tale did have a sort of Snow White feel to it!)

Gorgeous as ever!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on October 30th, 2012 06:47 pm (UTC)
Aw, thanks, sunshine!

Beautiful!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on October 30th, 2012 06:49 pm (UTC)
So are you! *a belated hug*

Really lovely art. The colors are beautiful, and I especially like the style of the banner.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on October 30th, 2012 06:50 pm (UTC)
They're really pretty jeweled tones, aren't they? Happy accident, that! Thanks!

How did I totally miss this post?
These are gorgeous! I really like the coloring in the illustration - especially the gentle hints of red.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on November 4th, 2012 01:45 pm (UTC)
Thanks, dahlink! It posted while I was at the con; reaperown did the honors but LJ did something weird to my coding and she had to untangle my mess and...well. There you have it!

Great job!
