A Monster By Any Other Name...  
So one of my guiltiest pleasures, A Monster By Any Other Name written by the sweet, delightful brosedshield and lavinialavender, updated and I contributed a little spot illustration to this latest chapter.

ScaredSam_teaser


Full size under cut; SFW but spoilery for fic! So I'd suggest reading first and if you want to get a closer look at the art, then peek below the cut.

Pencil on paper, digitally colored. Not sure it looks a whole lot like young Sam but there it is. I was trying to push the expression and veer away from photorealism a bit, for feeeeeelings. I dunno; it' just satisfies me a little more. And boy does it feel good to hold a pencil every once in a while. :D

I try to wreck lives, I really do! ;) (But seriously, thanks for taking a peek!)

This is gorgeous. So deep and sad. You totally did a wonderful job with his expression. It's mournful and heartwrenching.
Kudos

Aw, thanks, you! (Hey, is your userpic from a recent con? If so, HOW WAS IT?!)

Squee! So glad you posted/reblogged it -- AND drew it in the first place, of course! I second all of Brose's initial comments about the gorgeousness of the piece, how it looks like an old-type portrait of Christ, how there's so much to read in Sam's eyes, how his FC tattoo is starker than his hunter tattoo...and how damn EXPOSED he looks. D: Ahhhh, the things we write.

Seriously, one of the aspects of FC I'm most proud of is that it inspires you. ♥

You are the sweetest person to ever be sweet! It makes me incredibly proud that my art gets use and tries to put words into visuals. Thank YOU!

God, you are so freaking great

No YOU are. :D

So expressive, so lovely. Jealous of your skills :)
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on May 27th, 2014 11:25 pm (UTC)
Don't be jealous! YOU ARE STARLIGHT.

My heart aches for him :(
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on May 27th, 2014 11:25 pm (UTC)
I KNOW, RIGHT? This fic tears my heart out, then builds it up again over and over...I'm addicted.

I saw the chapter update last week and my first reaction was: look at those eyes! I also sorta love the fingers too -> minimal, but very solid and present.

Niiiiiccccccce ;)
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on May 27th, 2014 11:24 pm (UTC)
Eeeeee, thank you! I kinda love the fingers. Latex gloves, and all. :D

so lovely! his expression reminds me of a religious painting, maybe a goya?
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on June 5th, 2014 05:20 pm (UTC)
I thought I'd responded to this! I loooove Goya. Thanks, bb!

I think you got young Sam's likeness down well. Such a powerful image and so sad :/
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on June 5th, 2014 05:21 pm (UTC)
Yay, thank you! I think he looks a little like older Sam, but so much of it is hairstyle. If Jared got his hair layered again, and let it curl, he'd look at least five years younger (which is probably why they don't do it, heh!)

This makes me want to cry! If I wasn't sucked in neck deep to that story already, I would absolutely *run* to read it right now. You are amazing.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on June 5th, 2014 05:22 pm (UTC)
IS THIS STORY NOT THE MOST HEART-BREAKING THING EVER?? And when will we see you do more art for it, huh? HUH??
