Shine On You Crazy Sisters...  
Okay, here's a totally self-indulgent quick-ish illo. thursdaysisters wrote this pulpy, delicious, naughty, dangerous serial that I just HAD to get a piece of. (And she tempted me with hand-knitted fingerless gloves so how could that be wrong?) Check it: Shine On You Crazy Diamond.

(Close-up of J's face because his nose actually worked. And I dig the smoke.)

Really, you guys. Read the fic. It's killer. Literally.

Well, yeah, it kinda is, actually! Thursdaysisters was bored recently and was offering to knit folks fingerless gloves for weird fic, but I don't write weird, so I asked her if she'd take an illustration instead. And that's when she pointed me to 'Shine On' which, as it turns out, was inspired by the red-sun-smoking-Sam pic! She had a very specific image in mind ... Jared, looking out a Miami hotel window, smoking. He's a hitman in the fic. IT'S DELIGHTFULLY GRIM.

And I just couldn't resist the lure of fingerless gloves.

Now that I've gotten this out of my system, however, I might have some porn to write ... *mulls*

Seriously though! The ARMS and SHOULDERS and HAND DOWN THE PANTS!

And the beautiful tattoos and the armpit hair and the NECK!

Well if I had any say in the matter...! (You just wanted to use both of your smexxy userpics, didn't you? :D)

That all just works. I love the tats. The picture of Sam from earlier with the same ones is just about my favorite SPN art of all time. If I get a tat someday, it will be because of the original picture. This?.....is absolutely gorgeous. The man, the smoke, the reflection on the window and the perfect palm branch. Lovely art, m'dear.

I dig the smoke, too! And the nose. And the whole thing in its polished, precise glory. I love your style :D It just gets more awesome with every new work.

Oh, holy hell, he's beautiful! His nose works, yes, but so do his lips . . . hair ♥ . . . that deliciously bite-able neck . . . the tats . . . armpit hair . . . that luscious torso . . . and those glowing eyes, oh, boy!

And yes, the smoke is gorgeous. Love the way it curls near the top.

. . . and the reflections on the glass. This entire piece is ROCKIN'!

Damn, that is really good. It reminds me of Ryoichi Ikegami's work. (Which is a huge compliment coming from me as he is my favorite Manga/Anima artist. I have most of the manga he has illustrated... even if the story sucks.)

Well done and kudos to you.

Utterly gorgeous! Everything about it is perfect, not just the nose. Love it!
sagetansagetan on December 31st, 2013 07:28 am (UTC)
This is just GORGEOUS. *___* His hair is so luscious, I am in love. I also really like how the smoking and glasses and tattoos echo your other piece, the one of Sam as a man of letters.

Yay for the nose! It's truly a lovely nose. I like the smoke too - but you know I can't post this on SSA after your last smoking one got shot down in flames (Bwhahah!). I can't be doing with the hassle.
Love that he has a MoL tat... I'm wondering why he looks so frowny... *rushes off to check out the fix*

The other one caught flack for the smoking, did it? I WAS NOT AWARE! Oh, silly people, it's AU! ;)

This feels very dark and stormy, and I'm completely drawn to Sam. I think the black and white with tones of grey add to this feel and gosh all the detail - there's just so much to look at! I love the curl of the smoke and Sam's arms and collar bone - is it hot in here?!

Absolutely stunning. The art nouveau peacock feather tat is just the cherry on an already impressive and sumptuous cake <3
