SPN J2 Xmas prezzie!  
I was so stoked to get indiachick's name in the spn_j2_xmas draw! Her mind works in strange and mysterious ways. And okay, so she didn't want a 'happy' holiday pic but I'm totally good with that. :D Caution: tentacles and possible character death. \0/! (Work safe, though. I swear...)

(crappy scan of original sketch, original size. It lost so much detail and delicacy in the scan. Santa, bring me an awesome scanner for Xmas, 'kay?)

Whee, thank you! It took a stupid amount of digital fiddling but the original pencil drawing (not the scan) is still my fave. Happy holidays, teb! *eggnoggy smish*

The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on December 21st, 2013 02:38 am (UTC)
Weird, huh? This is why we watch Supernatural. Monsters are hawt.

Ooooooh beautiful

I love the coloring in this!!
Monster Sam always hot. No matter the form.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on December 21st, 2013 02:44 am (UTC)
Yanno what's interesting? I didn't really have a backstory in mind when I did this; I just took disparate prompts from Indiachick and mashed them together. What's really cool is reading how everyone interprets it. I never thought of Sam as the monster (Why not?!) but I totally dig it! Thinking of the image quite differently now... :D

I'm just going to go over to my corner and cry for poor, dead corpse!Sammy now.

(And possibly buy astroturf so the tentacle monster won't get me.)

Dead!Sam is really beautiful though. I love the colors even if he terrifies me.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on December 21st, 2013 02:46 am (UTC)
I confess; I have a think for the macabre (No, really??) and I just love that near-iridescent death pallor. I'm sure, however, if I saw the real McCoy, I wouldn't be nearly as smitten. Thanks, though!
mangacat201mangacat201 on December 20th, 2013 10:51 pm (UTC)
I love it, it's like all my buttons and double piled up. Also, Sam's eyes. Seriously. rwooOOoaRRR.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on December 21st, 2013 02:47 am (UTC)
I KNOW, RIGHT? I couldn't resist. Thank you, lovely. Have a great holiday, and may 2014 bring you peace and great opportunities. :D
sagetansagetan on December 20th, 2013 11:23 pm (UTC)
Oh wow. This is so haunting and beautiful. Absolutely gorgeous!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on December 21st, 2013 02:48 am (UTC)
I kinda think it's a smudgy mess but I had to stop fiddling! I'm heading out of town tomorrow. Thank you, though! Happy holidays, lovely. :D
Sophia Prestersophiap on December 20th, 2013 11:34 pm (UTC)
Wow! That is gorgeous, and I love the unusual take on that particular line.

I also love the mottled, layered colors and the unwholesome paleness of Sam's skin.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on December 21st, 2013 02:49 am (UTC)
...the unwholesome paleness of Sam's skin. I confess; I have a thing for it! So wrong. Hee! Thank you, though. :D
kassidy62kassidy62 on December 21st, 2013 12:01 am (UTC)
maybe this is a weird comment, but Sam looks completely and totally romantic in an angsty way, with his hair and his pretty mouth
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on December 21st, 2013 02:50 am (UTC)
No, I agree! There's something very Victorian about it, yeah? Thank you!
harriganharrigan on December 21st, 2013 12:23 am (UTC)
Just... wow! From the water crashing on the rocks, to the stars and moon above and everything in between, the blood, the tentacles, the *eyes*!!!

The coloring, the atmosphere... you're amazing!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on December 21st, 2013 02:54 am (UTC)
Pfft, amazing, shamazing. This took a stupid amount of fiddling and I still think it's kinda mushy, but thank you! The colors were fun to layer, though. Like ... an abalone shell! (I default to this palette a lot...)
ephermeralkephermeralk on December 21st, 2013 12:58 am (UTC)
That is absolutely, amazingly, spectacularly beautiful.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on December 21st, 2013 02:54 am (UTC)
GO ON. :D (Thank you! And have a happy holiday...)
counteragentcounteragent on December 21st, 2013 01:42 am (UTC)
AWESOME!!!!!!

Totally on board with whatever awful thing is happening/about to happen here.

Transformed Sam is so yummy, and Dean appears to be suffering, which matches what I wish for him in canon right now LOL.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on December 21st, 2013 02:56 am (UTC)
Hee! Poor, misguided Dean. He needs a Jiminy Cricket, doesn't he? I dig how you spun the sort-of narrative here, because I just mashed a bunch of prompts together and voila! Have a great holiday, lady. And a peaceful, plentiful new year. *smish*

It is with terrible restraint and an impossible show of bravery that I am keeping myself from just going SQUEEEEE in all caps and maxing out the character limit of this comment. :D :D

Oh my God, I literally just woke up after staying up till 5 am writing my tentacle-esque, Lovecraft-esque Christmas story, and then I saw this, and this is SO PERFECT I am having palpitations here. It’s so beautiful. Mmm, Sam as an eldritch creature and the expression on his face and his glowy eyes!! And pretty purple tentacles, and the bruised looking sky, and the moon, and somehow there is sparkliness and rough seas and craggy rocks, and DEAN, bloody and possibly hopeless and I have hearts for eyes, can you see them???? ♥ ♥ ♥

And the colors! All these ancient-looking, weird-fiction-esque colors! I can’t even tell you how long I sat around staring at that tentacle wrapped around Sam’s neck.

I was worrying about the person who got my Christmas prompts because … weirdness and drowning in bath-tubs to Christmas songs, seriously, but I’m going to be smiling about this FOR DAYS. (Mom's already asking what's wrong with me)

THANK YOU, BB! Happy Holidays to you and all yours too!!

*whispers* seriously, this sort of is my Christmas story. *rolls around in this perfection*
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on December 21st, 2013 03:56 am (UTC)
Oh, lovely, I adored your prompts SO HARD, I didn't even know where to begin! Especially the drowning to 'It Came Upon...' So David Lynchian. Had I not overscheduled myself, this would've made a truly amazing large-scale drawing, but I had to default to smaller and mixed media. Boo.

I just love reading you describe the colors alone. Dang. And I can't wait ... like squirmingly anxious ... to read your Cthulhu-flavored Xmas story!

Happy holidays back at you! I'm so glad you're such a glorious oddball; you're truly brilliant! *rolls gleefully with* :D
I'm Mulder, She's Scullyrunedgirl on December 21st, 2013 03:55 am (UTC)
You managed to make this creepy, sad, a little bit scary and at the same really beautiful. Kudos :)
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on December 21st, 2013 03:57 am (UTC)
Exactly what comes to mind when you say "Christmas", right? :D :D :D But I had so much fun. Thank you!
septembers_codaseptembers_coda on December 21st, 2013 05:33 am (UTC)
I love this, especially Sam and his eyes! All of it is so haunting. Love the colors, the composition, the use of the words... man, intense. Beautiful work. <3
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on December 22nd, 2013 06:22 pm (UTC)
I'm a little wishy-washy about the words because I'm not great with font layout and design but I still love them, despite my ineptitude with them! So I keep trying and spinning my wheels in the mud. ;)

Thanks, lovely!

I literally just finished listening to a Stephen King story with tentacles and then there's bloody Dean and tentacles. This is so gorgeously haunting and you so amazingly captured despair in Dean's features.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on December 22nd, 2013 06:33 pm (UTC)
Then it needs to be written! IT IS IN THE AIR. *stares out across the ocean* Which King story? I could really like it, yes. :D
