I had a lot of fun with this year's Reversebang. Mostly because leah_elisabeth is so awesome—not only was she great to work with, she gave me a fantastic classic case fic and I even got a chance to do my very favorite thing, creature design. She took my original prompt and just ran with it, taking young Dean and Sam and a creepy motel and going in a direction I didn't even expect. Please go read her wonderful story!

This was my original prompt. I wasn't sure if this was the right challenge for a kid-aged prompt, but I'd had this image of big bro Dean taking Sammy to a beat up old soda machine at a creepy old motel, while other guests (that may not quite be human) linger in the shadows, in my head for a long time, so I decided to go for it.

This is the second piece that I did based on Leah's story. I absolutely love creature design, and I love Lovecraftian-style mythos, so putting the two together made me very happy.

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.
