genteensybang art: Silent Night [Ruby & Bela, PG]

Title: Silent Night
Author: [livejournal.com profile] gryfndor_godess
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] sagetan
Pairing: Ruby & Bela, various
Rating: PG for art, R for fic
Summary: Babysitting Dean and Bela’s brat after they went to Hell was so never in Ruby’s plan, but with them out of the pit now, efforts to free Lucifer are finally back on track, if a few months behind schedule. There are still occasional blips, though, like the boys deciding to batten down the hatches on little Mary Winchester’s half-birthday. Fortunately, while Sam and Dean wallow in their paranoia that history’s going to repeat itself, Ruby and Bela have each other, not to mention lots of wine.

Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] gryfndor_godess for being a delight to work with and to the mods for running the best and teensiest challenge ever. Yay for the Teensy Bang \o/

So gorgeous! I'm especially loving what you did with Bela's face. The twist of her mouth is delicious. I love the color scheme too. Great job!

THIS IS BEAUTIFUL AND I LOVE IT.

I CANNOT SAY MORE BECAUSE I HAVE TO WRITE BIG BANG.

BUT YOU SHOULD DRAW HOT BITCHES LIKE RUBY AND BELLA ALWAYS. <33333

These are amazing! I think you did a great job with Bela's expression and pose, but I admit that I ADORE the second picture, with the clear conflict in their expressions (love Sam's pleading and Ruby's evil look) and THEIR HANDS. I cannot with their hands. It looks like Sam's almost being a little gentle (I notice that his hands are mostly open), and there's something almost intimate about his thumb in her palm, even as he appears to be stopping her. I dunno, dude. It's just kinda doing things to me. <3

Thank you! :D

Bela was great fun to draw, I love staring at Lauren Cohan's face, haha. I'm so glad Sam's gentleness came through, I tried to make his hold on her look as non-threatening as possible. I'm so happy you liked these, yay <333

This is so beautiful! I love Ruby's expression in both pics and Bela is so classy looking. (Poor Sam, he looks so worried!) And the textures are awesome.
Seriously, I love everyone's faces and the way you draw hands is really pretty and kind of delicate.

Thank you so much! Faces and hands are my favourite things to draw, I'm so happy you like them. And I am super pleased you think Bela looks classy :D

I love the way you do eyes, they're so dark and expressive. And look at their pink little fingers! Lovely!

Thank you! I am so pleased you think so :D

These are really wonderful! I love the expressions (Sam's little pouty lips XD) and the obvious attitude that is communicated (you've definitely captured a particular tone to this fic). Out of curiosity, what do you use to color the line drawings? Do you color by hand or by using a digital medium?

[identity profile] sagetan.livejournal.com 2013-05-03 12:09 am (UTC)(link)
Thank you! It's delightful to hear the art matches the fic, I'm very glad you think so :) I coloured everything digitally in PS CS3, but the textures I used in the illustrations were made traditionally, I believe.

Also, your icon is the cutest :D
