GenTeensyBang Artiliciousness  
I had the great pleasure of working with sagetan for this, the first genteensybang! It's an adorably sweet little fic...love in the time of zombies. Gen's a tough survivor and Jared is ... well, Jared is Jared. :D

First pic done entirely in Photoshop and inspired by the work of Scott Fischer, the second was sketched, scanned and digitally textured. Here's the drawing, undoctored, at its original size, which I kinda like too!)

This is all so incredibly beautiful. I adore it to pieces! Thank you for being so fun to work with, and for being ridiculous amounts of talented. I'm just going to stare at Gen's gorgeous hair and intense eyes and at Jared's adorable face for a while, don't mind me. *_______*

And the drawing is the most adorable, I love it! Gen's likeness is especially great, and the height difference is delicious, and the monkey's little smile is just SO CUTE. I love Jared's lustrous wind-blown hair too, it's marvelous. Thank you for being awesome <333

It's an adorable story that deserves adorable art (or at least we can both hope, huh?) Can't wait to read the final dealio! You, madame, are multi-talented and pretty damned amazing.

Ohh, that looks gorgeous! I really like the style of the banner, so cool. :D

Hey, thanks! I didn't plan it out as thoroughly as I usually do, just kinda went with a vibe. The fic manages a lightness in the grim setting and I tried to depict that. :D

Whoa! Zombies, blood, badass!bruised!Gen, and hitchin'Jared. The second one has a kind of an endless-skies Western feel to it (and I can't wait to find out what's up with the monkey in Gen's hair.)

Looks like my kinda story. Definitely my kinda art! Go, you!

Yay, you could tell it was a monkey! :D Really cute fic, though, truthfully. I dug it.

Lovely jubbly my dear - I especially like hitch hiking Jared. I quite fancied this zombie fic myself but was chuffed when I saw you'd snaffled it. I knew you'd do something special. :D
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on May 7th, 2013 02:02 am (UTC)
And snaffle, I did, huh? My first RPF too. But it was so endearing how bad-ass little Gen was and how guileless and steadfast big ol' Jared was and together? Adorable!

Ooooh, I love it! I love how pretty you've rendered Gen in the banner. She looks like a wee bit like a romance heroine, with her flowing hair and the soft watercolor-y texture behind her, and her makeup ... and then SHE'S HOLDING A FUCKING BASEBALL BAT ALL CASUAL LIKE A BAMF. She's sizing me up. I can tell. And I LOOOOVE adorable hitchhiking Jared.

In the second one, I really love Gen's expression (and the monkey in her hair!) and how there's a little vulnerability but also, I think, something a little cagey around her eyes. It all looks amazing, basically.

:D :D :D Thank you SO MUCH!

Yay these are awesome!!! I love the banner especially. Gen's bat! And Jared's boots! (I like his boots, okay?)

And the monkey in the second one - hee!!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on May 7th, 2013 02:04 am (UTC)
I love Jared's boots. They are SO not Sam's boots. :D Thank ya, lady!

Love these - as always!

*loves on!*

I'll echo pretty much everything ghost said above b/c those are pretty much my thoughts exactly.

I really love how clearly CLEARLY bad ass Gen is and how Jared is *_* about it. ♥
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on May 7th, 2013 02:06 am (UTC)
I really wanted to catch the vibe of the story in the banner because really? That was my favorite thing, how sagetan created these opposite, charming characters, amidst "Braaaaaiiiins"!

Thank you!

i love the banner! i love the colors and the shambling zombies and i especially love gen's baseball bat. physically she never looked like much to me - she's not big and strong, y'know? - but with the baseball bat and the look on her face, you know she's not someone you can fuck with.

Love the pic of Gen and Jared!!!

These are so lovely! I'm particularly stuck on Gen, maybe because I don't see her in art very often, but I love how she is so very much the star of the main banner, just as she is the star of the story (in Jared's mind, at least :D).

But then that second one, where she's looking up all adoring - EEEE. You really capture a certain winsomeness Genevieve has in some of the photographs I've seen. Gorgeous.

I love the big title card the most, but they're all beautiful.

Having finally read the story, I can now look at the art, and it's most excellent indeed! I love the classic movie-poster style of the title image, and the way Jared's breaking that border around Gen, who looks thoroughly intimidating there - kind of wild around the edges, just-restrained violence. And with the thumbs-up, too - not just hitch-hiking, but also a positive sign, which is a nice way of calling back to his bringing a bit of cheer into her existence :). The last image is lovely, too, all nummy texture and fluid lines. The monkey is so damned cute and so damned sad, all at the same time. Gorgeous work!

Aw, thanks, bb! :D

This is so delightful! I especially love the baseball bat and the miles of Jared's legs. The monkey made me want to cry.
