Master List of Fic
Incomplete list, I'm gradually adding to it when I get a moment. And due to the original post getting too long, I've had to split it up! So you will find:

Challenge 8 is to try doing some art using your non dominant hand.

I don't think I've tried drawing left handed since I was at school so this was interesting!
Especially as I forgot that using the left hand I should have started the picture on the right and worked across, instead of on the left - which meant I spent most of the time trying to lift my hand to avoid smudging the damn thing!
It's supposed to be Captain America. The other interesting thing, apart from how wobbly my hand is, drawing lines, is how basically I made the same errors I do with my right hand. His face is still too long and thin... It was actually easier to control the pencil when I held it on its side more.

So this was mine - did any of you guess?

I signed up for the DCU bang, so I'm exploring some new characters (but since one of them was played by Jensen, I feel I'm not straying that far!)
I'm also doubling up on [community profile] drawesome's week 7 challenge, which was to do something related to the 5th interest in my profile - athletics.

I only realised after I jumped on this one that I'd done a quicky_bang for zubeneschamali before, so I hope this isn't too much, going for a second one!

I wasn't sure I could edit the first pic well enough so I started afresh. I think this one is a little more successful. I did have two other goes actually, but the second one went really badly awry in terms of a likeness so that's definitely NOT going anywhere! So this is the one I think I'll get signed.
It's not the final version, I've made his head a bit wider at the back in the shadows, and darkened the background round his face to make it stand out a bit more. I thought I'd try using some pre-printed craft card so I had a ready made background. This is approx 30cm square.

I think it's worked reasonably well. It was quite hard to see what I was doing to start with, but once I got some the layers of pastels down it got easier. It's still a bit long in the face for Wash but I'm not too ashamed of it! LOL

I'm going to the London Film & Comic Con on Saturday and am getting an autograph from a certain actor - so I thought I'd try using the new pastels on coloured paper techniques to create something for him to sign. But, dear flisties, does this look enough like him to ask him to sign it?
All concrit gratefully received.

If it is recognisable and not too awful, I'll use this. If it needs tweaking I can have a go. If it's not good enough I'll start again. The colours haven't photographed quite right, this makes it look like there's a lot of white on his face that isn't so glaring on the drawing. (I think/hope).

Over to you guys!

My artist friend Lois, who I met last year when we both painted pigs for the sculpture trail, makes a living by running art workshops as well as by selling her paintings and papercuts. I've been thinking about trying one of her workshops for a while now and when I saw she was running one relatively close (only 30 mins away by train), and that it was about working with dark and light tones, I thought I'd give it a go.

big_heart_june posted a rather lovely gif, which made me want to try out my watercolour pencils. So blame June...and check out the gif because it's yummy.
I do like these Inktense pencils!
Dear artist Flisties - any concrit/tips on how to continue are very welcome!

I might finish this tomorrow, but now I'm off to take Paul to see Despicable Me 3 and get the Minions to make him laugh. The boy needs it. Toodle pip, my darlings.

This is the gif btw

Last week I did Dean, so this week it's Sam's turn. The prompt was a word - villainous. So I had to try Samifer, and then I had to gif it. I'm still not very slick at this animation business but it's fun.

I kind of feel I should apologise - I keep gifting you with not very good art because I fail at planning ahead and so end up doing your birthday pressies at the last minute. Oh well. It's green, and it's Sam so I hope you forgive the scrappiness my dear quickreaver! LOL
Have a wonderful birthday with lots of cake and indulgences.

This year's spn_j2_bigbang I claimed a Western J2 AU, because the summary sounded like so much fun. I was right! I was chuffed to learn the story belonged to tsuki_no_bara, as I hadn't worked with her before. So this meant lots of new things - so exciting!

I had the pleasure of working with oceanbluecas and sixxstiel on this year's casefic. Unfortunately, due to lions and bears and JIBcon, I only had time for one main picture, which I cannibalised to make the banner and some icons.
