These are all great but I especially like the tarot cards. I love that you've got the roses in with the devil. The fortune teller's eyes are fascinating. Awesome job!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on November 15th, 2012 03:46 pm (UTC)
Oh, I HAD to include the roses. It's such an odd juxtaposition to the Devil. Thank ya, ma'am!

Ahh so awesome!! You were my first pick but all like...eight of my picks got taken so I didn't get to write this year. I'm excited to read this one! Your art is absolutely amazing, I love it so much!!!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on November 15th, 2012 03:45 pm (UTC)
The claims are tough at the RBB, no doubt. It's a wonderfully popular challenge; I'm sorry you didn't get to play! But THANK YOU bunches for hanging around. You're kinda awesome. :D

I just adore the style you chose for the tarot cards! And that woman's face is especially captivating. I love her expression.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on November 15th, 2012 03:37 pm (UTC)
The cards were SO much fun. They weren't quite as detailed as I'd have liked (mostly in the colors) but I'm still exploring more interesting linework so I'm mostly happy! I'm really glad you dig 'em; that means A LOT coming from you!

*rolls lovingly in all the smashery* Thanks, lovely! That means tons coming from a writer whose work I covet like a greedy miser. I need to work with you some day. I do.

Wow, sweetie, these are all gorgeous! :)

:D Eeee, thanks, sunshine!

BOOM!

How gorgeous is that prompt pic! I hadn't recognised it as you straight away as I'd got used to your more linear styles but you can bet I'd singled it out from the start as one of my fave prompts. Just love those saturated rich reds and her eerie pale eyes.
Then the rest - the Hanged man is my fave of these - and how long is Sam's hair in that one!!! LOL
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on November 15th, 2012 03:31 pm (UTC)
My 'Sam's hair fetish' rears its ugly head, right? :D

I use a more realistic style in my dayjob and it's damned labor-intensive; it wears you out. So I like to play with linework in my fanart. Drawing can have so much more energy and fun and expression! It's a different kind of fulfilling.

:D Thanks, lady!

Absolutely amazing. You're insanely talented. Love the use of different media and styles. ♥
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on November 15th, 2012 03:26 pm (UTC)
Oh, pfft. You're only as talented as your next paycheck. ;) But thank you!

Oooh, these are lovely. I was very intrigued by the main piece back during claims, but couldn't think of any particular ideas of what to do with it (and also was intimidated by knowing nothing about tarot). I especially love how rich the colors are.

(BTW, was there a recent you or your artist author didn't post a post to the main spn_reversebang comm?)

We submitted our masterpost to the comm last night and for some reason, it hasn't been approved yet (the posts are being moderated, probably due to all the spam.)

Thank you, m'dear! That realistic style is more typical of what I do for my dayjob (as a book cover artist) but it's veeeerrrrry labor-intensive and I just get tired of it. I love the energy and expression of linework so I'm trying to get half-way decent at a more 'comic' vibe. AND I have a tough time sitting on one style. I'm a little artistically ADHD.

OHH, PRETTY! Love the cards, and the last one is breathtaking. :D

I do like the traditional media things. Now, to work on more than just pieces of FACE. :D
