Title: Sam in Wonderland
Author: lux-tuli
Artist: illiminal
Fandom: Supernatural
Pairing: Gen
Summary: Sam, tormented by hallucinations of his old friend Lucifer, unable to sleep properly, wakes finds himself in a strange land that just gets curioser and curioser.
Challenge: sammybigbang




When I saw lux-tuli's summary for her Sammy Big Bang story, I knew I had to grab it. I love the setting and characters in Lewis Carroll's Wonderland, and I knew it would tie in beautiful with the Supernatural world.

I had so much fun working on this project. I'm really excited by how everything turned out. I implore you to go read the wonderful story lux-tuli wrote!

Sam arrives in Wonderland. Curioser and curiouser:



The Queen of Hearts doesn't look too amused. "You're nothing but a pack of cards:"



(For anyone curious, the cards I illustrated are:

The Fool: Sam. I wouldn't usually cast Sam as the Fool myself (maybe the Hanged Man), but in this context it works.  It would fit with his own self-image at this time in the show. This is also Sam's story, and the Fool is the one taking the journey through the rest of the Major Arcana.
Death - Well, Death, of course.
The Sun - Garth, our very own ray of sunshine.
The Hermit - Bobby, through and through.
The Emporer - John, without a doubt.
The Tower - The Winchester house in Kansas, going up in flames.
The Chariot - Couldn't be anyone other than Baby.

I didn't end up including all the characters from the story in my final illustrations,but I enjoyed the concepting process so much, I had to share my initial sketches:

These pieces are for the 2017 SPN Reversebang. This is my first time ever doing any kind of fan collab like this, and I was lucky that the talented zubeneschamali claimed my prompt. I really love the story she's created; it's so true to the relationship between the boys, and beautifully written. Go read it!

Janelle Monáe http://ow.ly/g56y308mCm1#janellemonae#thearchandroid#portrait#portraits#music#musician#art#sketch#drawing#instaart#artwork#artist#painting


Finishing up the second part of the assingment for the first course of Realistic Portraits on Schoolism. This is a sketch of Janelle Monáe, done using a grid method for comparison of proportions.

I’m pretty damn happy with how this one turned out.

Portrait sketch of the late, lovely Leonard Cohen. It’s the first half of my assignment for the first course of Realistic Portraits on Schoolism. I’m really loving the course so far.
