art for spn_j2_bigbang!

This is my first time doing BigBang! *flails* I must thank _leafy for being absolutely fantastic and not spazzing at my terrible tendency to procrastinate and spaz and flail. I had a great time working with her, and I'm glad to have found an such an awesome friend. =) Also huge thanks goes to everyone who organizes the whole ordeal over at spn_j2_bigbang because they are fabulous and I can't imagine the amount of time it took to run everything as smoothly as they do!

Fic title: Like Tipping an Hourglass
Author name: _leafy
Artist name: x2xbandgeekx2x
Genre: RPS, J2 AU
Pairing: Jared/Jensen, Jensen/Steve
Rating: NC-17
Word count: ~23,000
Warnings/Spoilers: Medical jargon, angst, more angst, sex.
Summary: Working at the hospital ER can be stressful. Patients are being wheeled in left and right, the hours are long and the coffee is stale. Still, Jared Padalecki is a doctor who enjoys his job. He even enjoys spending time with his sometimes annoying coworkers, even if they tease him about his crush on a certain physical therapist called Jensen Ackles, who just happens to work at the same hospital. Jensen is a guy who likes to keep his personal life private, but that's okay because Jared's pretty sure Jensen isn't even gay, and being friends with him is more than enough. But what happens when one day the patient you are treating turns out to be the boyfriend of your not-so-secret crush?

Jared is forced to face his true feelings while Jensen struggles to decide what to do with his life. Should he stay with the man who needs him, even though their relationship had already been over before the accident? Or should he move on with his life and pursue his own happiness instead?

Go read it here!

These two posters weren't even supposed to happen, but in trying to come up with a divider I had a moment of inspiration. I wish the movie poster was more kickass, but I just started it last night. I have a newfound respsect for the people who design movie posters... those credits are a bitch.

The proper banner, with convenient dimensions:

Aaaaaand the dreaded illustrations. I had a million scenes that I wanted to illustrate in my head, but quickly realized that I am absolutely useless without references and that's it's incredibly difficult to find a picture that's got the angle and the pose you want. I also had no idea that laying down was so fucking difficult, but it was. I had to make my brother flop on a bed for me, and even then the clothes still killed me. I also came to realize (far too late. note to self: be less stubborn) that my usual tendency to draw as realistic as possible was not really feasible, so I forced myself to simplify and went for style I've never done before. And now I'm desperately craving a handy dandy tablet that I DONT NEED, because when I get back to school I can just use the ones they have there.

Yeahhh, in summary, this was a huge learning experience for me. I clearly need to work on this drawing, scanning, and digital coloring thing some more, but I think they turned out okay.

Jared passed out in the on-call room

Jensen in Jared's clothes

I nearly failed and forgot the glasses! *headdesk* Non-glasses version is here just for the hell of it.

This just happened today and was therefore a bit rushed (it definitely shows.) I'm not happy with it all. Kissing is quite difficult to draw, I'm realizing. lol But there you are.

The end! Constructive criticism is welcome, and if you haven't read _leafy's fic yet, GO!

So really weird moment. When I opened this post the song I was listening to was Bumblebee off of the Transformers soundtrack. Yeah. The art is wonderful by the way. I love how you can see how long Jared's pants are on Jensen in the second one. Jared being taller then Jensen is a mild kink of mine and that hit it nicely.
