Welcome to the Art Master Post for [livejournal.com profile] paleogymnast's amazing and incredible Jensen/Misha AU Springboard Helix, done for the Spn_J2_BigBang. This fic has been one awesome ride and an unexpected one for me. You should all go read it! (and before the art because otherwise there are spoilers~)

Usually I'm one of those people able to hit the claims list pretty much right when they post but that wasn't the case for me this year and by the time I got there they'd already been open for several hours. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to find a non-wincest or non-j2 fic that's I'd be able to really get into and then found this... I'm honestly bewildered that it wasnt' taken by anyone and all I can say is 'your loss' WooHoo!

I'm also not normally a huge Sci-Fi fan or a big AU fan but this fic has seriously converted me. Paleogymnast's attention to detail is pretty much unparalled and she creates a universe that you can't help but become invested in. I was right there with Jensen for the whole trip and was honestly sad that it had to come to an end. Truly, I've bought published books that don't come close to this. One of the absolute best things I've ever read. I don't think the art I was able to complete really does credit to how great it was but I sure had a trip trying. ♥ I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did.

This is just a random sketch I did of Dr. Katie Cassidy. Ironically I did this sketch completely from my head and it was only after when I looked back at the story that I realized I'd drawn her hair and clothes pretty much exactly how she really wears them. Too funny :D

I didn't actually get to read or start this scene unitl today so it's still just a rough sketch, and probably pretty anatomically incorrect but it was just a powerful moment for me. This is Jensen when he's trying to escape being kidnapped. I also included a closeup of Jen's face.

I have a Misha picture that I can't take a picture of without it blurring all over the place. And my scanner is still on the fritz and my roomie isn't willing to let me use hers for whatever reason. But I'll keep trying and hopefully the finished pic will be up later. For now here's an earlier rough sketch that I already has on my comp. It's Misha leaning against the wall looking angry [while Jensen is being examined by Katie (after Jen got shot).]

Okay, while waiting to be able to scan in the above pic (tonight hopefully) I sketched a new version using a style closer to the Jensen pic style. :D It's still the same scene, just a different take. Protective/Angry Misha. Enjoy~

And here we have Alona, peeking her head out from around the corner at the beginning of Jensen's goodbye and warning to her. It was a lovely masterful scene and I'm actually really pleased with how it turned out. Although it was not what I'd planned at all. ::laughs::

Credit and applause and rainbows go out to [livejournal.com profile] paleogymnast for writing such a captivating story. I look forward to reading everything else you've written. and Thanks for giving the fandom one more Jensen/Misha and an EPIC at that :D

Thanks, ::laughs::. I did that Misha pic right before the post went up. It was the quickest sketch I did for this whole thing (I think it took maybe 20 minutes...) so I'm glad it turned out well enough to score fav points. :DDDD
