More Supernatural art!  
Even though I had never done anything like SPN J2 Big Bang, before, I decided to do it twice! At the same time. Whoa. :D For the second story, I matched up with star_dancer54 and their story, The Animal.


The art is rated G, the story, decidedly not so.







The Animal


The Animal

The final reworked piece for star_dancer54's SPN Big Bang Story, The Animal. Originally laid out in one composition and done completely with nib/brush & ink on bristol, altered in photoshop as per request.


The Original Art:



The Animal



The original ink piece for star_dancer54's SPN Big Bang Story, The Animal. Some info (whether you want it or not ;D)- The circular designs are all freehand, loosely based on the principles of henna. When I first read the story, I was very inspired by the idea of Sam taking on the same markings as the hell hounds, and I kinda saw the designs slowly forming on his skin, much like a complete henna design takes slowly takes shape as it's applied to the skin. The flowered line in the right corner is meant to represent a stylization of the string Dean follows.



Drawn with Winston & Newton (Nut Brown/Orange) and Aladine Calligraphy (gold) ink. I think if I could do it again, I'd use a watercolor base on watercolor paper- I used up almost half of my brown ink while being paranoid about diluting the bottle, and the Bristol paper didn't hold up as well as I would have hoped.







I took some photos of the process, which I'll post as soon as I find my adapter.

Thank you so much for doing this. I'm sorry for being such a pain in the ass about this *facepalms*

I think this is pretty amazing. I touched and overwhelmed how many handdrawings we have this year for the bigbangs. I think it's AWESOME!!!

I like the colored one better although I can feel the B&W one too ;)

I had a ton of fun sketching out ideas, and would love to do it again.

Thank you! I'm fond of it, which is why I posted both of them.

I know. I had the same fun. I was drawing and painting after 5 years. So being part of the "bigbang" was really something big :)

And these turned out just awesome ;)

I feel like a jerk for not keeping up on my comments. But still, a very belated thank you for your kind words! :D

I love the colors! Those gold henna-lines are just amazing, and I really love the composition. Really, really gorgeous.

Thank you! They sell the gold ink where I used to work, and I totally stocked up thanks to my employee discount before my last day. ::cuddles it like some demented art student:::

Your artwork is wonderful - composition, colours, the gold ink. Especially the gold ink. :)

Thank you! It's a calligraphy ink instead of a traditional drawing ink, but as soon as I saw it I fell in love with it.

Oh wow, this artwork is just amazing. I love the markings on the hell hounds on second painting. Jeeze. Just amazing. The colors you used just really brought everything together. AMAZING.

Thank you so much! Inking with the gold freehand was both fantastic and terrifying, since it was the last detail on an otherwise finished piece!

I love all these different pieces stacked together, just like they are in Sam's mind. Nicely done!
