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:

SPN Gen Part 1 - long fic HERE

SPN Gen Part 2 - short fic HERE

Master List of Arts - the masterlist is very much a work in progress right now, but while I'm constructing it, you can find some of my more polished art on deviantart.

Things to Do List - wherein I try and keep track.

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.

Tom Ellis

I thought I'd stick the photo of my Tom Ellis watercolour into PS and see how it might look if I was to work on it some more. I overlaid the reference photo I'd used and discovered all the proportions were actually ok, apart from I'd made his face too wide. So of course I couldn't resist fiddling. Once I'd done that I got rid of the reference and tried enhancing the drawing with some linework and shading.

This is the result.

Since I need to produce something for Tom Ellis to sign before I leave for Italy, I thought I might take a couple of reference photos with me to work from in tonight's sketchbooking class. I kind of like the watercolour techniques we were trying but sadly, the end results don't resemble Tom very much at all. In fact the second one looks more like that Tyler thingy from Teenwolf. Which is weird since I've never watched the show and have only see pics of him at conventions and on Tumblr.

Never mind, it's all good practice!
First one (done on sketchbook paper which is really rubbish at taking watercolour, soaks it up like blotting paper).
Second one (done on this weird plastic-like paper I bought to try out, and it's quite fun to use).
I'm wondering whether I can now go over this subtle watercolour with something else and make it more like Tom.

I wanted to do more fills for ohsam Sammy's birthday celebration, but so far this is it, and it didn't work how I'd wanted it to. Never mind hey!

Since I forgot I signed up for writing and art, I didn't have a fic ready in time, so this is my only deanwbigbang post. Hope y'all like the art, I'm sure you'll love anactoria's wonderful story!

I have two apologies: First, I'm timing the post so won't be able to add the story link until Sunday, so just check the DWBB comm! Story link is HERE ) or click on the banner.
Second, I'm sorry I didn't do more art for this one. I did the banner ages ago and then other stuff piled up and this one got put on the backburner, until I nearly missed the deadline altogether! Doh!
Banner and story link!

There are no real spoilers for the story in the next art, it's a scene from early in the fic. I actually did this one second, but it's ended up being my favourite of the two.

I thought I'd have a go at digital painting again, very experimental. I wish I could do something more brushstrokey and loose. Maybe I'll get there if I practice more.

Anyhow here's the start of a Sam portrait. Or Jared. But probably Sam.
