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! ^_^
more! )

Hello, LiveJournal! :) Feels like it's been a while. That's possibly due in part to the fact that I have been keeping insanely busy, both in real life and with making art for my [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang claim. We can probably write this off on account of this being my first Big Bang, but I may have seriously over-extended myself. Seriously, I am insane for the amount of art I am determined to do. I'm really pleased with how most of it's turned out so far, but I'm barely even half-way done and I have nine days before we post. I've already met the 'requirement' for BB posting, but I haven't met my *own*. I guess we'll just see how it goes, and cross that bridge when we come to it. My author (*waves at [livejournal.com profile] akintay*) has been more than amazing - so incredibly lucky I got her - but I'm still super afraid that I won't finish and it'll be this big letdown, lol. But I got a bunch of work done yesterday, and I'm going to keep plugging away at it right up until the final hour if I have to.

In semi-related news, I finally broke down and signed up for the [livejournal.com profile] spn_heatwave. I figure it'll be good to keep myself actively arting after BB is over, and this seems like a pretty chill way to do so. (On an unrelated note, does anyone else have the issue where LJ turns the word 'figure' - f i g u r e - into the word 'div' when it's viewed on the mobile app? Oddest problem I've ever seen, lol.) Anyhoo, as most of my BB art has been grayscale, I'm looking forward to creating something summery and *colorful* for the Heatwave comm/challenge thing. Also super psyched to see what other people create :) I've been seeing a lot of meanttobe art and fic postings lately, which is awesome also! Communities and challenges are definitely the reason to be on LJ, and I'm glad to be here :)

Talk to y'all again soon! :) <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

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! :)
