Art Rec10!

This is a different format for an art rec post - and I haven't forgotten I said I was going to do an art rec post every month and only managed two!

sillie82, quickreaver and I were talking about memes and art and stuff and quickreaver came up this idea: the ArtRec10 meme! Give us links to ten of your favorite pieces of SPN/RPF fandom artworks. Could be on LJ, tumblr, deviantart, wherever. We know there's lots of faves, but try to pick a few. Let's make today a little more beautiful! Couldn't we use that right now?

Topics may overlap — for instance, your h/c fill may be digital — but we'd like to see ten unique reccs, if you can manage it. Also, be sure to provide a link to the original art, so folks can leave love for the artist. If you choose to post the images, mind the image sizes and be sure to put it all under a cut.

Here are mine, trying not to repeat any from my Feb and April rec posts...

1.) traditional - I was going to rec sillie82's Cain, but as QR got there first, I'll go for this sketch of Ana by anobviousaside. I actually only discovered this one today when I was checking through their tumblr archive, but I thought it was awesome. Ana has such a wonderfully sculptural face and this sketch captures her in just a few lines. Love it.

2.) digital (handpainted/drawn via digital means) - Trueform Cas with Dean by thefriendlypigeon on tumblr. I just love this - the plain background that really allows the figures to stand out; the amazing glow of Castiel's angel parts; the half monstrous, half human form; the sketchy painting. And Destiel isn't really my thing at all :D

3.) Mixed Media - this is another Castiel piece, this time by wifihunters, and it's simply beautiful. I've put it in this category because it's a photo manip, digital art work that's also an animated gif. I could stare at this for hours.

4.) alternative media (paper cut-outs, stitchery, jewelry, cosplay) - I have a friend called Kate who makes Supernatural mosiacs as well as super pencil drawings. She's Lupinemagic on FB - the mosaics are all hand made tiles, she paints and fires them herself, and then adds in suitable charms, like squirrels and mooses... I've got several journal/scrapbooks and a lovely key box which is pictured here

5.) photomanip/graphics - Demons by pompei77 - not only well done but creative. What a cool prompt this would make for a reversebang, right?

6.) h/c - It's Okay by selfOblivion. This was a beautiful moment in the episode, echoing Mary's caress in What is and should Never be, and this artist has captured both Dean and Jo's expressions wonderfully. There's a gif showing how they built up the painting too. Check it out!

7.) horror - His Red Right Hand by NaSyu on deviantart. Another Dean Cas art - love how dark this is, both visually and in the theme.

8.) shmoop - which I'm taking to be anything that makes me smile, or go aaaww, or both... so I've chosen dollarformyname's recent cover art for deidre_c's I Don't Care if I Never Get Back. Look how sweet our bys are together...

9.) nsfw - National lingerie day - an assortment of Sams in panties. Just because. By awabubbles on tumblr. Warnings for some underage sexy Sam.
10.) WILD CARD! In case you think this was all too serious, may I present... Pure Crack by megmcmuffins.

Fantastic recs, my dear! I adore pompeii77's art and Lupinemagic's artwork - I have a few pieces - and you gave me one, thanks!

The others were new to me, which is always nice. I love Anna, the artist has drawn her beautiful big eyes perfectly. The h/c is so gorgeous, it's really captured Dean's expression. SAM IN PANTIES - WOW! And the last one is so funny!

the panties one was new to me and I love that artist's style - they really have a thing about Sam in lingerie!

You've got some great prompts here. I think I may have to have a bash at this, maybe at the weekend when I've got a bit more thinking time. There's just so much great creativity in this fandom, I don't know where to start!!

I love seeing art recs, because I miss so much over on tumblr and other platforms - so thank you for sharing!

Me too! Tumblr is full of lovely stuff but it's hard to keep up with it all.

I'm honored you think I should be allowed in the same company as all these gorgeous pieces! <3 I have to say, though, that key box is especially fabulous! I looove super creative stuff like that, that most people wouldn't think of. Might have to go stalk this person's page now. ;P

Ha - you are up there with the elite as far as I'm concerned. :)

Kate is super talented - and her stuff has a good price range. She makes fridge magnets and key rings for £5-£6, and the tiny note books are relatively inexpensive too (considering the amount of work that goes into each one!). Her jewellery is also fab and reasonably priced - plus of course the postage on the smaller items would be cheaper. If you order anything, tell her I sent you!

NO, YOU.

Definitely got my eye on some things in her etsy shop. So fun! And of course, I'll absolutely let her know you sent me.
