Title: Artwork for Good Porches Make Good Neighbors
Author: zubeneschamali / zubenfic
Artist: dancing_adrift (yup, that’s me!)
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: PG (for art; fic is NC-17)
Medium: Corel Painter Essentials 5, pens/old Sharpie & scratch paper

Artist's Notes: This came about thanks to my Twitter TL being filled with awesome people. Zuben often lets us know when it's an interesting "National [Holi]day", and August 8th was "National Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor's Porch Day". That's just begging to have fic written about it, right? Thanks to a sort of self-feeding loop, there's now fic AND art. I'll regal you with more of the tale below, but first, you should really go read the fic!



Summary: Jensen's getting more and more aggravated at his neighbor. Can't the guy take a hint? Jensen simply doesn’t need any of the man's zucchini.

Title: Artwork for Breaking the Ice
Author: ashtraythief
Artist: dancing_adrift (yup, that’s me!)
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: PG-13 (for art; fic is NC-17)
Medium: Corel Painter Essentials 5, blood sweat & tears
Artist's Notes: Created as part of the 2017 SPN_J2_BigBang challenge. (My 2nd year!)



Summary: Jared has been harboring a crush on Jensen, the prince from the far north, ever since he was fourteen, so when his parents announce that they’ve chosen Jensen as his husband, Jared couldn’t be happier. But when Jensen arrives in Scayen, Jared realizes that there’s more to him than meets the eye — and even more that Jensen doesn’t want Jared to see. But it shouldn’t take much more than Jared’s sunny charm to melt Jensen’s icy facade, right? Except it isn’t so easy dealing with cultural differences and misunderstandings; sometimes it takes a lot of food, some good friends’ advice, a little kitten, and even a bit of magic to overcome a rocky start.

I know y’all are here to see some art - there’s A LOT below the cut, and you can see it all as you’re reading the fic, too, (which you should do anyway) - but I really need to thank some people first, because this wouldn’t have happened without them.

Jen (gluedwithgold) - I literally would not have been able to do this if not for you. You know all that you did, and I am eternally grateful. I love you!! And many thanks also to our Sammie (non_tiembo_mala) for being there every step of the way. I love you too!

ASH (ashtraythief) - omg, my amazing author. I’ve loved your fics for as long as I’ve known them, and now I got this INCREDIBLE opportunity to collaborate with you… fucking dream come true. We’ve talked about this. If you don’t know how much I love and admire you by now, then clearly I haven’t been irl-schmoopy enough ;) Would love to work with you again, absolutely any time, my dear. You kick ass :)

Anna (whispered_story) - my amazing author from last year and my friend and cheerleader ever since. Thank you, meine Schoene, for your everlasting enthusiasm and encouragement. Ich liebe dich :)

And, as ever, thank you to Wendy for running this challenge (so glad you do what you do!!), and thank you to all my fandom friends for the continued love and support.

ALRIGHT, LET’S SEE THE ART!!! :D

Summary: Art for Wireless Connection, written by the amazing [livejournal.com profile] lotrspnfangirl, and my second entry for the 2016 [livejournal.com profile] j2_reversebang!

Jared finds stress relief in Twitter as a second-year nursing student. Over summer break, he becomes friends with Jackles @profjackles, aka Jensen. He doesn't even know what Jensen looks like, but he can’t help from falling for the man he met online anyway. Their relationship changes unexpectedly when Jensen accepts a new job at Jared's university. Nursing school is not nearly as hard as discovering that the guy you've fallen for is actually your professor.

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! ♥
dancing_adrift: (Default)
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! ♥
dancing_adrift: (Default)
It all started with a journal... a wedding present from someone who doesn't really know me that well, and therefore thought that I would use a "My Favorite Moment of the Day" journal [for its intended purpose]. Heh. Yeah, no. Never let it be said that I'm not a bit of an ass, lol.



Anyhoo, I've decided to participate in Inktober! I post these daily to my twitter, but I've decided to post weekly summaries here, too, as suggested by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] amberdreams, who is also creating some fantastic drawings for this month-long 'challenge'. There's a ton of awesome art coming out of this, and I hope you enjoy my small contribution! :)
ALL THE ARTS )
And there you have it! My first week of Inktober drawings. I've already drawn and posted Day Eight (another birthday drawing, for [livejournal.com profile] gluedwithgold!), but you won't see it on LJ until next week ;) Until then, I'll see you on twitter (I hope!) :) ♥

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! ^_^

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.

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! :)

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 )
