Another week has come and gone, and October is just flying by!

In case you've missed them, you can see the rest of this month's drawings here:
#Inktober - WEEK ONE!
#Inktober - WEEK TWO!

Or, follow me on twitter and see them as I post them daily :)

Anyhoo, please enjoy this week's doodles! ♥
ALL TEH ARTS )
Day 21 - "First Kiss"
This drawing is outside of the cut because not only is it technically fanart, but it's fanart that comes with a fic rec! The fic this was inspired by (and I say 'inspired' because, if it was directly done for the fic, I would have actually been looking at the fic when I drew/colored it and made sure the details actually *matched* the fic (they don't, not exactly, lol)) is by the amazing [livejournal.com profile] __tiana__, and I enjoy reading it often. So yeah. This image of bartender/drummer!Jensen and mechanic/artist!Jared is from the first scene of "Don't Go Mistaking Paradise" (which I just re-read last night, and you definitely should go [re]read now too, if you're at all a fan of J2 AU fic :)). And I hope you like my art, too, lol XD



That's all for this week, folks! I'll be back next Saturday to post even more. Thanks for taking a look! ♥

Another week gone by, another week of daily doodles! Remember that you can see new drawings first if you follow me on twitter, as I do post all doodles there daily :)

As this first one could sort of count as fanart (it's meant to be J2), I'll leave it above the cut. Hope you enjoy all the rest of my drawings too! Thanks for checking them out at least ^_^ ♥

Day 8 - "Fall Fairies"
This was drawn in honor of [livejournal.com profile] gluedwithgold's birthday, and it came from her prompt (something along the lines of "idk, fairies? Maybe fall? Ooh! Fall fairies!). I did 'cheat' a little on this one (outlined in pencil first); even so, ballpoint pen and not-so-fine-tipped Sharpies that bleed make for very frustrating tools. :sigh: I do enjoy the FallFairy!J2 concept though, so maybe I'll recreate this digitally someday ;)



MOAR ART :D )
And that concludes another week of arting from me! I hope you all have wonderful weekends, and I'll be back again next week with more! ♥

HAI.

So, I'm discovering that, lately, my approach to LJ is just stopping by occasionally to create list-posts of everything I have on my fandom plate at the moment. Which, is a lot, lol.

FIRST though - I AM NOW MARRIED. MY WEDDING IS DONE, YAY! Haha. It was an awesome day, darn near perfect, and it was all around wonderful. I hope to share some pics and maybe some little stories from it soon, but I'll make that its own post. For now, have a FANDOM PROJECT UPDATE.
UPDATE )

So yeah! I'm keeping myself crazy busy as usual! But I'm having so much fun collaborating with fellow fans, and embracing my creative side, so I don't regret one bit of it :) We should have the rest of our wedding pics by the end of today, so hopefully I'll share some of those with you this weekend! Hope y'all are having a great day! ♥

Sooooooo. Hi. It's me again. Little organizational post to help Manda keep her life straight. Also, an update on things to look forward to from this blog! :D

AUGUST 6 - Claims Day for [livejournal.com profile] spn_cinema! I have a fic idea for one of my favorite movies I'd like to try claiming. I've already written the opening 'scene', so there's that at least. Might also try claiming art for same film? Not sure about that yet. Might be a bit tight schedule-wise, what with wedding planning and all that jazz. [Drafts: Sept. 5; Posting: Oct. 3]

AUGUST 11 - First day in Minneapolis with [livejournal.com profile] non_tiembo_mala, [livejournal.com profile] alyndra, and other lovely SPNFamily for MINNCON!!! OMG. SUPES EXCITES.

Tonight, the lovely [livejournal.com profile] amberdreams posted a *gorgeous* (and hella sexy & nsfw) piece of art that she created (intended for [livejournal.com profile] spn_heatwave). First, obviously, you should go check it out, because it really is awesome. Second, she included a bunch of progress shots that *I* thought were pretty neat to see. I always love seeing how other artists go about creating their works. Anyhoo, since I actually have them, I thought I'd post some WIP pictures from my own Heatwave submission, "Toes in the Sand". I hope you enjoy them! ^_^

Oh gosh, just look at this lovely collection of art and fic, so gorgeously gathered in one pretty post. The [livejournal.com profile] quicky_bang popped my LJ comm/challenge cherry (how appropriate, no?), and it was fantastic preparation for my first [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang, which I just got to post today! (Check it out here!) I've had three opportunities now to work with three amazing authors, and I'm so looking forward to what LJ has next in store! :) Anyhoo, go check out the awesome art and fic below! ♥

Thank you, wonderful and generous authors for offering your short stories to play with. KUDOS to all the amazing artists who enthusiastically claimed those fics and created these cool pieces of fanart.
I love you all so much!
Now it's your turn, readers, lurkers and passers-by: see if you missed anything and then shower all participants with your adoration, they deserve it:) <3<3<3

Title: "Fifty Shades of Fae" (Artwork for The Dizzy Heights of This Dreamed of World)
FIC: LJ | AO3
ART MASTERPOST: LJ
Author: [livejournal.com profile] akintay (whispered_story on AO3)
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: G (for art; fic is NC-17)
Medium: Corel Painter Essentials 5
Artist's Note: Created as part of the 2016 [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang challenge.

One of the aspects of this story that appealed to me right away was the Harry Potter vibes I got from the 'Artist's Summary' when it came time for artists to claim fic. A baby deposited on a doorstep to be cared for by an adoptive family? A child that grows up only to have a stranger reveal that they aren't quite as normal as they'd always thought? Yeah, that says HP to me, lol. And as soon as I read the first line of the fic - "On July 31st, in the early hours of the morning, a willow basket is placed on the porch of the Padaleckis' home." - and the date just *happened* to be Harry's birthday, I couldn't help but take inspiration from one of my favorite book series.
More, and ART! )

Title: Artwork for The Dizzy Heights of This Dreamed of World
(Also on AO3)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] akintay (whispered_story on AO3)
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] dancing_adrift
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: G (for art; fic is NC-17)
Medium: Corel Painter Essentials 5
Artist's Notes: Created as part of the 2016 [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang challenge - the whole reason I fully joined LJ in the first place!



THE DIZZY HEIGHTS OF THIS DREAMED OF WORLD | AO3

Summary: Jared is left on the Padaleckis' doorstep as a baby with no clues as to who he is or where he's come from. As he grows up with a life full of love and support from his adoptive family, he never loses the dreams of some far off place with green hills and meadows, a sprawling forest and gurgling stream. It's a beautiful and peaceful there, and every night Jared has his dream landscape all to himself—until he starts hearing a voice calling for him.
When a stranger on a motorcycle shows up on campus a few months later, Jared suddenly has a new reality to consider. Not only is he fae and betrothed to this man—who introduces himself as Jensen—Jared's also in mortal danger. Torn between wanting to keep living a normal life and figuring out who he really is, Jared reluctantly agrees to let Jensen prepare him for the danger up ahead and unearth his own fae powers. As time goes on, he starts to feel more and more drawn to Jensen and he comes to realize that they share a bond that reaches well beyond an arranged marriage.

Tonight I managed to complete another chunk of art for my Big Bang project (about time, too. Yay!). However, before I finally got to the point of being productive, I did a few quick, fun pieces that I figured would be fun to share on here. Enjoy! :)

Rainbow Treescape


Priest!Sam - by request for [livejournal.com profile] gluedwithgold


Aiden


The first piece was just me playing around with colors and brushes; the second two were both quick tracings of photographs with a little color thrown in. They were fast and fun, and I'm happy with the results. Hoping to get much more work done on Big Bang this weekend, so hopefully these three pictures got the 'draw random stuff' itch out of my system for a bit ;)

Thanks as always for reading and viewing and commenting and encouraging! I keep arting because of people like y'all. <3

Hello! I figured, with so many exciting things happening in my fanart life right now, I should perhaps post a little update!

FIRST: I did end up claiming another fic for [livejournal.com profile] quicky_bang! I have made much wonderful progress already making art for the short fic "Agora" by [livejournal.com profile] excoyote. It's an adorable story about collegeboy!Jensen discovering this tucked-away bookstore run by agoraphobic!Jared. Its super sweet - you should go give it a read, and know there is schmoopy art soon to be posted for it, right here, by me! :D (And, thanks to the magic of layers, though the story is only rated Mature, I'll have a little NSFW bonus art to share, too ;) So you can look forward to that as well!)

SECOND: The entire reason I really joined LiveJournal - - - [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang ART CLAIMS HAVE HAPPENED! AND PRETTY MUCH ALL MY HOPES AND DREAMS THAT POSSIBLY COULD HAVE COME TRUE DID! I had the incredible luck of snagging one of my absolute favorite authors and lovely friend [livejournal.com profile] akintay's fic, "The Dizzy Heights of This Dreamed of World." I read it the day she sent it to me, and believe you me when I say, "If you like J2 fics, you're gonna love it!" I'm biased, of course, but it really is a wonderful fantasy J2 AU, with tons of visual appeal for an over-eager artist like me. I'm really going to be making so much art for it (I can't help it, it's what I was inspired to do) - that you all are going to think me a brown-nosing jerk. I swear, that's not my intention, I just got really excited about the idea I had, and it just so happened to require me making lots of art. So it's keeping me very, very busy, and I'm having a blast, not only in the shear amount of time spent arting, but also in collaborating with such a great author and friend. I'm so very lucky to have snagged her, especially as a BB!virgin!! XP

On the note of BB art, I've been working primarily in Corel Painter Essentials 5 (the software that came with my drawing tablet, without which none of this would be anywhere near as easy), when before I had stuck pretty close to GIMP. Today, thanks to my friend [livejournal.com profile] gluedwithgold practically forcing me to look at some tutorials, I *finally* figured out layers in Corel, and it's pretty much changed my entire life. It is a whole world of difference, and it's going to make many of my future projects SO much easier. I made some awesome progress tonight, and I'm really, really happy with how it's all coming along.

So yeah! That's my "quick" update for y'all. Jury is still out as to whether or not I'll participate in [livejournal.com profile] spn_heatwave; the desire is still there, but I might be too wiped after QB (should be posted by Tuesday, May 17), and BB (posting schedule starts June 8th!). We will have to see! Anyhoo, lots of art coming from me on this journal in the next month, and I'm really excited about it, and I hope you are too. My next post will probably be the start of it! I'll see you then! <3

Played a little more with my new art tablet tonight. This piece is based off the image that is currently serving as inspiration for a fanfic that [livejournal.com profile] gluedwithgold is writing (that I CANNOT WAIT for her to finish - goth!Jared and punk!Jensen college AU! *squee!!!*). I'm still relying on tracing to help me get the lines of Jensen's pretty face "right," but I had fun playing with colors and blending tools and whatnot myself. One of these days I'll finally get around to working on my second piece for the [livejournal.com profile] quicky_bang... but until then, I'm sure I'll keep having fun practicing ;) Enjoy! :)

soooooo... my birthday came a bit early this year. I GOT AN ART TABLET TODAY. I CANNOT EVEN BEGIN TO DESCRIBE HOW EXCITED I AM ABOUT THIS.


Art!! :D )
dancing_adrift: (Default)
This [livejournal.com profile] spn_heatwave definitely sounds awesome. A huge part of me wants to participate, while another part of me is like, "Run away! You're nowhere near good enough!" lol. But I do want to practice making art more (because how else does one improve??), so this is so very tempting. Sign ups go through June 1st; perhaps I'll see how [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang and any other [livejournal.com profile] quicky_bangs go first, and then maybe I'll jump in to play? Regardless of if I take part or not, I'm very excited about this event. Check it out! :)

I'm having a hard time braining right now (I just submitted two job applications, and that always wipes me right out), but I still want to post an update re: several fandom things about which I am excited...so I am resorting to a bulleted list. And all items are "Bang!" related, so, well, that's cool, right? XP

  • I submitted art for a challenge!! :D - Not only my first art submission on LiveJournal, but also the first submission for Round 1 of the [livejournal.com profile] quicky_bang! Woohoo! *feels like she won something* XP I had so much fun with my first claim that I am seriously tempted to claim another. Artists don't seem to be claiming fics super fast, which I suppose is partially a result of this being the very first time this challenge has been issued. I'll give others (and myself) a little more time before claiming another, just to be fair.

  • I'm writing fic! - You might not be able to see anything at that link yet, but soon there should be three awesome fics there, all submissions for the first round of "Selfie!Bang." The Selfie!Bang is a little writing challenge between myself, [livejournal.com profile] non_tiembo_mala, and [livejournal.com profile] gluedwithgold in which we all write stories based off the same prompt. This is especially challenging for the three of us because we all are usually so involved in each others' writing (I beta for both, NTM and I collaborate a LOT, and GWG and I have actually co-written fic together) that it's tough to not have each other to rely on during the writing process. *giggles, because, 'process'* But that also makes it exciting, because it will be really interesting to see how we take the same idea and make it into our own unique fics. And it's an extra challenge for me because I'm pretty sure I'm the slowest writer ever, and definitely the least experienced, but I'm pretty pleased with what I have so far (which is, I believe, the most I've ever written by myself so far, too). So *that* is definitely something I need to finish before I think about claiming another fic for the Quicky_Bang, lol. (Due date is April 10th, so keep your eyes peeled if interested! :D)

  • Big Bang 2016 is ON! - I didn't mention it here, but I am officially signed up to claim a fic for the 2016 [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang challenge! *squees* I was reading over some of the teasers today, and it looks like there is a LOT of great stuff to look forward to. I'm so excited that I decided to leap off that particular cliff and sign up!!


With all that said, I've included the link to the Quicky_Bang below in case anyone is interested in checking out the fics waiting to be claimed. From what I've read so far, it's a pretty great group - lots of awesome opportunities for art! I hope to see as many fics claimed as possible by the end of April, and I can't wait to see the art that comes from it! <3

Title: Artwork for Bring Me a Dream
Author: [livejournal.com profile] alycat (also on AO3)
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: G
Medium: GIMP 2 (aka "Paint, with layers!" :D), with a little help from Picasa 3 for cropping and framing.
If "reference used" is code for "I used an existing image and traced over it because my freehand wouldn't do the pretty justice," then... reference used. XP

Artist Notes: For Round 1 of [livejournal.com profile] quicky_bang. I had so so so much fun with this - my first art challenge!

HUGE THANKS TO:
Firstly, to [livejournal.com profile] alycat for writing such a sweet, hot fic that also had a lot of really awesome visual elements to it. (Hello, glittery Zanna!Jared?? In *leather*?? Who wouldn't love the chance to work with that??) Also, for your enthusiasm towards the sneak-peaks of the art I gave you, and for the constructive input (skinny-fied Jensen = size kink win!). It seriously means a lot that you were so awesome about me making art for your fic, especially since this is essentially my first time, and I don't really have the most sophisticated art programs to work with on my computer, lol. ((hugs)) You rock. I had so much fun making this for you <3

Secondly, to my creative team - my sounding board(s), my support system, and my dear friends - [livejournal.com profile] gluedwithgold and [livejournal.com profile] non_tiembo_mala for being there for me every step of the way. As always, your advice, ideas, and support are invaluable to me and absolutely appreciated. Love you ladies :)

And finally, to [livejournal.com profile] beelikej for setting up such an awesome challenge!! I'm so so so *psyched* that I could participate (and possibly be the first claim to post art???). Thank you for making it so easy! Your enthusiasm and encouragement have been so great! Keep up the awesome work! I'm definitely looking forward to future challenges :)

Okay. NOW, the moment you've all been waiting for (if you haven't read the fic yet, DO THAT FIRST) -

IT'S TIME FOR THE ART! :D )
dancing_adrift: (Default)
Hellooooo LiveJournal! So, I've done a thing! Well...I'm working on doing a thing. Have you heard of this, this [livejournal.com profile] quicky_bang? Look, look at Dean's pretty naked back...and then click the link and check it out.


[livejournal.com profile] quicky_bang
Round 1: submit short stories until April 30th; create art before May 31st


*drools at the pretty*

*shakes herself out of it*

ANYhoo, I'm super excited about this for a lot of reasons. Probably the number one reason is that I've claimed a fic!, and I'm going to make some art!!! :D I'm lucky enough to get to draw something up for [livejournal.com profile] alycat's sexy J2 story inspired by the SPN episode "Just My Imagination". You can (and should!) check it out here ("Bring Me a Dream" - Jared is a glittery Zanna and it's awesome! :D).

Another reason I'm excited is that I went and submitted one of my own fics (see?) << That's just the prompt, but there's a link to the fic(s) there. I also recently cross-posted them here on LJ. It doesn't seem like many (any?) other fics are claimed yet, and I don't really expect much, but it'd be pretty damn cool if someone wanted to make art for one/both/either of my fics.

The final reason I'm excited (besides the inherent coolness of the collaboration that is a natural part of these sort of things) is because, all of the fics that are being submitted for art-claims, well, it's a built-in rec list! I've read a few already, and all of them have been great. If I get done with this first art claim fast enough, I'd be strongly tempted to claim another. Just sayin' ;) I'm really looking forward to seeing what all comes from this first round of the Quicky!Bang ^_^
dancing_adrift: (Default)
I love this idea. Like, a lot. It sounds right up my alley, in fact. I don't know if LJ notifies when you're tagged in a post, but [livejournal.com profile] non_tiembo_mala and [livejournal.com profile] gluedwithgold should definitely check this out. I'm considering offering one of my fics up for "Seeking Art", and I'm *definitely* thinking of attempting to create art for someone else's fic. What an awesome opportunity to collaborate and be creative. <3
