neomeruru: (just come)
I have a resolution for the IBB! This round, I am going to try to comment on every art post, even if I can't read the story because of time or whatever. It takes like two minutes, Lindsay. Do unto others.

Luckily, the art this time around has been really excellent, so it's not like it's a hardship!

([livejournal.com profile] eternalsojourn and [livejournal.com profile] sin_repent are posting today though. Weep and rend clothing, that I am not sin_repent! :D)

Cap/Iron Man Big Bang: art post

neomeruru: (tony and steve cartoon)
Under the cut is art I did for the Captain America/Iron Man Big Bang 2011. I was lucky enough to partner with [livejournal.com profile] jadedoll, a seasoned Big Bang writer and all-around fantastic person to collaborate with. She wrote a charming little story called Buy You A Mockingbird in which the canon female!Tony-from-an-alternate-universe shows up and, with her dying breath, charges Tony with the care of her biological child. Who happens to also be the son of Steve Rogers, naturally -- theirloveissocanon. ANYWAY: in which Tony Stark starts caring for someone other than himself, and babies make everyone fall in love with each other.

( Apparently babies don't do that in real life, or so I'm told. Good thing I live in a fantasy world. :D)

Very minor spoilers for the story itself, but if you've made it this far you already know them. Natasha Stark dies! There's a baby involved! Hard to spoil for the central conceit of the story. :D Oh, and there's the tiniest, teeniest bit of blood, because I have a niche and I am going to exploit it, good god.

with my last breath, I curse zoidburg! wait, no, that's not right )

Sign Ups: Author | Artist | Track Two | Beta

Sign-ups for Round 2 of the Inception Big Bang have started! Well, we made it to our second year, folks!

I am super happy to say that I will be signing up in Track 2, with my bestie homegirl:

[livejournal.com profile] sho_no_tabi

... who I hope you remember from my incessant flailing over Dig, Lazarus Dig, Glitch, Plenty of Good Thieves, and many, many more. I have basically just been flailing since she offered to collab, oh my god. So I am A LITTLE LIKE THIS ABOUT THIS BIG BANG:

(Seriously, I mean that literally. I got her message and went out into the living room and made that exact dance at Husband. I am a little invested.)

I might sign up as a general artist as well -- Tabi is already hardcore into her story, so I'll have my hands on the draft well before Artist Claims in December, resulting in a lot of time to work on a second Big Bang. I'm not sure yet! If more writers make it to claims than artists, I might throw my lot in there too.

This is my cover illustration for [livejournal.com profile] schesinger's big bang, On Tilt, in which Eames and Arthur both secretly work in dreamsharing but think the other is a civilian, a la Mr. and Mrs. Smith.

Congratulations on finishing, [livejournal.com profile] schesinger, and thank you for indulging my secret-spy kink!

big bang hangover

Proof that I have maybe been eating, sleeping, and breathing Big Bang illustrations for too long (three pieces in four days!), last night I dreamed that I was checking my comments and someone had written "this is terrible, it doesn't even look like Mal, you totally ruined her face."

I woke up strangely frustrated?

Apparently, my subconscious likes to play my worst critic. Even when it doesn't make sense.

I feel a little artistic burnout right now, but at the same time I feel like I should just open up Photoshop and keep going. On the plus side, I am definitely seeing an improvement with each piece. One day I will look back on this time and call it my Renaissance. :D

At long last, I can post some of the stuff I've been working on! Here are the pictures I worked on for [livejournal.com profile] ilovetakahana's Big Bang. Look upon my works, ye mighty, and despair! Or, you know, comment! That too!

Now the notebooks are filled with sketches and musical notation. Now he spends his time immersed in the arts: painting, cooking, bookbinding, photography, music. Gone are the guns, replaced with digital cameras and brushes and paint on his hands. Gone is Arthur the point man; in his place is Arthur the artist.

Artist Note:

It was a pleasure to work with [livejournal.com profile] ilovetakahana on this story. I volunteered to pinch hit for her less than five days ago, and had an absolute blast cranking out THREE pieces under such a short deadline. My only regret is that there is so much more I wish I could have drawn! Thanks for being such an awesome partner, [livejournal.com profile] ilovetakahana!

There are spoilers underneath the cut, both in the pictures and accompanying text. It's recommended that you read the fic first, but don't forget to come back here to comment! <3

there are many things that I would like to say to you )

bang bang whimpers

Because I am, again, a masochist, I volunteered to pinch-hit some illustrations for [livejournal.com profile] ilovetakahana's big bang, which will be posted on February 14. Which is Valentine's Day, by the way, if you celebrate those kinds of holidays. I don't, thank goodness, though if it involves dessert and cuddling, I am all for it.

I just finished the cover, and it's going into my Big Pile of Things I Can't Post Yet (five pieces and counting!). Today is basically entirely for drawing, which is wonderful because I am just going to sit here, unwashed, in my robe, with terrible bed head, and I will make pretty things, and it is incongruous and delightful.

By the by, the other night when I was wondering what to draw, I ended up with the aftercare piece for the reverse bang. So! Keep an eye out for that one; it and the other piece will be posted on Feb. 19 for claims on Feb. 20. My entry for the [livejournal.com profile] eames_arthur swap should be posted soon, too. And, my original big bang collab with [livejournal.com profile] schesinger will be posted sometime between Feb. 20-25.

My life otherwise continues to be utterly boring, seeing as how I have three phases: work, art, and sleep. Husband and I are spending a lot of time at thrift stores and paint stores and etc etc coming up with decorating ideas. It's awesome. Seriously, I missed my calling. When can I just do this art stuff all day, preferably for this strange thing you mortals call money?
