SpringFling Thing  
Just posting here for organization's sake; I think everyone already commented (so nicely, thank you!) at spnspringfling. And I'm pretty sure my identity wasn't terribly veiled anyway. ;) It's kinda hard with the artz.

My recipient was the lovely maerhys, offering the prompt Love and War in a City of Snow and Ice. Interpret that as you wish! monicawoe felt the vibe was End!verse-y, with both boys having said "no" and the world, such as it was, coming down around them. I agree. That's where my headspace was when I drew this. And I get kinda tired of always putting them in the same clothes, so maybe their attire isn't quite as Sam-and-Dean-ish as it could be. So that's the dirt. :D

Alas, I have seen so little of Springfling, I've pretty much missed EVERYTHING. D: Did not see this one, either. There's a nice vibe of melancholy going on, and I really like the falling snowflakes (or is that the ash of the Apocalypse?) Gorgeous work, from their expressions, to their hands (hands!!), to the body language. LOVE their eyes!!

So, erm . . . have you grievously wounded Dean again, or is that suspicious stain on his sweater more innocent than it appears? ;)

Me? Wound Dean? NEVER.

Thanks, bb!

I sadly haven't had a chance to go through the Springfling posts, so thank you for reposting. I would've missed this beauty! Aw, your art is sooooo gooood, as usual. I love them just sitting there together and watching the world end. Looks absolutely fantastic.

Thank ya, ma'am! I have a 'thing' for stillness and strength in the face of disaster. Or sumthin'.

Nope, I missed this gem! I saw a very random selection of springfling and have yet to catch up.

I like that this could simply be a snow scene, except that they both look more than cold, they look wrecked and yet resigned.

As ever, your line work is exquisite!

This is just excellence itself.

Thanks for making sure we all saw this! This is one of my favorites that you've done here - and that's saying quite a lot!

I missed this in the springfling (SO behind in everything at the moment!).

I absolutely love this. I love how totally wrapped up they are in each other - their worried looks, the way Sam is wrapping himself so protectively around Dean. I love the colorless world and - just everything. Is there a story that goes with it? It evokes such a strong feeling of a narrative. *ADORES*
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on June 22nd, 2013 05:43 pm (UTC)
Thanks, babe! I hope a story does creep from this image at some point. It's really high praise that you see narrative in this because that's SO important to me and I struggle with it constantly. *huuuggggs!*

This is FANTASTIC. I love all the shading and depth, wow. And it's great to see the boys wearing atypical clothing! I bet it's boring drawing them in the same jeans and plaid and jackets all the time.

And the TOUCHING! I forgot to mention how fantastic the touching is. ♥

Touching is nice, yes. :D Thank you!

This is gorgeous! I love how they're holding on to each other, and how Dean's looking at Sam while Sam is scrutinizing the distance.

OOooh, I missed this one, so I'm glad you're organized :-p Awesome image, I love the grey look (not just the black and white;). The shadows in their faces and the way they are holding each other... it's a very intense scene. Their clothes are perfect (scarfs! grime! stitches! I see you, Dean's spencer)

Ooo, I saw this on tumblr! I love it, how cold and tired they look, how rumpled and worn their clothing is, and how handsome they are :3 Excellent work!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on June 22nd, 2013 05:41 pm (UTC)
Thank you! How have you been, darling person?? Haven't seen you around much. Things okay?

Eh, they've been better, lol, thanks for asking <3 I've been severely art-blocked, and when that happens I've also got other blocks, like communication is so hard and my mind is just kind of flat for a while. But I push through or wait it out, and then I'm back posting like a crazy person again, haha.

Hey, take care of yourself; we'll always be here for ya, baby!

Hands will always be my bane; that, and perspective. Just is! But thank you, sweetness. I had a lot of fun 'distressing' their clothes! (I loves me some hobo chic.)
