PART 2 - RANDOM QUESTIONS
 
What's the concept ?

An illustration art for a Sam and Dean fan fic by dragonspell  called Autum Leaves, here is a quick summary :

In the weak light of early morning, the autumn leaves are starting to paint the woods in reds and golds and a burning orange. On some level or another, Dean knows that it’s beautiful; he does. He's just got to find Sam first.

And "interesting" stuffs ensue, of course. Just in case you were wondering 

What came first, the art or the fic ?

The art! We wanted to collaborate again with DS (god, we are having fun, it should be illegal ) and as I had a draft for this piece of art in stock, it was just the right occasion! However the first version I imagined was very far away from what you have in this post :



It wasn't called Autumn Leaves, it was called Dad will never know and the boys were laying in the grass with the Impala in the background. However, I realized quickly when I started the CG painting that the field wasn't a very good setting. It didn't fit at all with the intimacy of the scene because it's a wide open space. I needed a set where you got the impression that Sam and Dean were like protected by the environment around them (I don't know if I am very clear here...). A forest with bushes, shadows from the trees, and some autumn leaves on the floor was just perfect, not to mention that I could enhance the impression of intimacy even more thanks to shadows and highlights and an orange palette.

However, the first real CG draft I sent to dragonspell  was a little bit different. The boys were on the edge of a river. DS had the idea of turn the river into a cliff. I added a horizon line and a couple of trees and...voilà!! 

More "smutty"collaborations with [info]dragonspell  in the future ?

Hell yeah! We are currently working on 2 other projects together. Neither the arts nor the fics are finished so I can't tell you when we are going to post but as John Winchester once said "(We are) working on it...."

PART 3 - A VERY SHORT TECHNICAL RAMBLING (for once...)

What software did you use ?

Softwares : Photoshop CS - Painter Essential 3
Tablet : Wacom Graphire 4

How long did it take ?

For once it's hard to tell because I didn't draw it in one or two sessions but in practically one month. I started, dropped, came back to it. I would say around 25 hours I think.

What brushes did you use ?

A lot of useful predefined brushes without which it would have been impossible to draw this damn forest.



Paint over ?

Sam's nose and mouth. I don't paint over faces but here, I lost patience. It happens 
Writing drawing is hard....

Reference photos ?

Yep, be careful, the first one is NSFW :
boys - Sam

Voilà!! Hope you enjoyed this short Art Post!
It's certainly the last art of the year for this account!
See you next year and...au revoir

Hon, your art always amazes me. I love this so much, not only the finished piece but the prelim one as well.

Merry Christmas,love!

I really don't know how I passed from the prelim to the finished piece because the two have practically nothing in common XD
Thanks a lot for the comment and Merry Xmas to you too Kady ♥

I'm sorry. I can't comment right now. I'm dead due to hotness.

That can be fatal, right?

:-)

Seriously, this is amazing! The way you captured Sam's surrender hits all my buttons.

Oh dear, it's the reference photo!! It was just perfect!!! I must be a very mean girl because I was able to turn a photo of sam suffering on the floor to...a sex scene where Sam have sex with his brother on autumn leaves!! HA ! HA! HA!

Thank you, thank you ♥
I'm happy you liked it :D

I love autumn colours and always think of Sam in the browns, reds and oranges...so this meets my kink superbly!! :D
Your wee red squirrel is a sweettie, and is that Dean's amulet it is chewing away at? Naughty squirrel!
PS Photobucket wouldn't let me see your 'boys' source photo...

So so sooooo gorgeous! The entire composition is lovely, such beautiful coloring, and your original line drawing as well. I just wish I could use it as a desktop background but my little ones might ask awkward questions. lol

Thanks so much for sharing your work!

Awkward indeed XD But I launched a "calendar wallpaper project" on my second account (completely SFW and for the family) so you will have something for your PC at the end of December ^^
