Christmas postcards for friends

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us


I didn't only receive tons of postcards from all over the world, I also wrote and drew a dozen of them for my friends. I decided in early October I would send a custom postcard to all my friends (from the spn fandom and IRL) that would correspond to their various tastes, ships and kinks. Yes, I know: I am nuts. It took me about 2 months to draw everything but let's face the truth: it was A LOT of fun.

Let's start!


Supernatural

1) Misha and a Minion

The expression "Misha's Minion" has never been drawn so literally, I guess. Believe it or not, I had more difficulties drawing the Minion than Misha. I forgive him, he's such a cuttie. I LOVE Minions!

2) Good Night Sammy

Drawn for a Sam!girl fan of Wincest. I am often a little bit worried when I have to draw hands because it's not my strong point so I couldn't help shouting a big "YAH!!!" when I finished drawing Dean's hand caressing Sam's face.

3) The Great Wall of Sam

I know that the great wall of Sam collapsing isn't the happiest thing to draw for a Christmas card but I was sure that the person I was sending this card to was 1) a Sam!girl 2) a fan of complicated designs, so I didn't hesitate. In addition, I must admit I enjoy drawing these very organic fractals a lot. The more complicated the better. I can spend hours arting this kind of things.

4) One day

I tried to include in this picture everything the person loved (Sam and tattoos) but I also included a tribute to the person's own work: the writing on Sam's neck, One Day, was a tattoo featured in an original art by my friend.

5) At last!

A happy Dean/Cas hug for a big Destiel fan. I knew she loved all the Purgatory scenes from S8 (so did I ) so it was the most obvious choice for this Christmas card.

6) Happy Days

Sam and Dean enjoying some good times together. Yes, you are not dreaming: no blood, no gore, nobody died. It's a Christmas card! I think this one was one of the most difficult ones: two characters + one character SMILING and yes, drawing people smiling is hard. Too many pen strokes and the smile can look creepy as hell. I was so relieved when I finished drawing the mouths.

7) Perfect Match

My friend left me the choice: hurt!Dean or Tom Hardy. I really don't see why I had to choose between the two That's a movie I would watch! Jensen Ackles + Tom Hardy, what a perfect cast it would be!

Misc. fandoms


1) The Doctor's biggest secret (Doctor Who)

Who knew that the Doctor was a hunter and sported a beautiful anti-possession tattoo? My first art of Dr Who ever. Eleven and his strange eyebrows were a challenge to draw...but not as much as the Tardis.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us


2) Stiles (Teen Wolf)

A picture of Stiles for a big Teen Wolf fan, inspired by an original photography of McGinley. I LOVED drawing the wolf's fur, I couldn't stop adding details after details. I am SO happy my friend received this card: it took one month for it to reach California and we both thought it was lost. Hopefully, it wasn't!

3) Steven Patrick (Morrissey - The Smiths)

I bought my first Morrissey record in 1990 and I am still a fan today, like the person for whom I drew this card. He's one of my oldest friends and is mad about Moz so this portrait was an obvious choice (and something easy for me because I think I must have drawn "Momo" as we call him in France at least 100 times )

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us


4) Ezio from Assassin's Creed

I've never played Assassin's Creed. The person for whom I drew this card never played the game either but she fell literally in love with one of the main characters, Ezio, and watched all the videos available on YouTube. I couldn't find what Ezio looked liked (his face is constantly hidden under a hood) so I improvised a bit.

5) Paul Mc Cartney wearing a corset

If someone had told me one day "You are going to draw Paul Mc Cartney wearing a corset", I would never have believed them. But guess what I drew for this card! It makes complete sense actually. What did you want me to draw for a die hard Beatles fan, mad about Paul and who wrote a cross dressed Beatles fic? Exactly. Paul Mc Cartney wearing a corset!

6) Custom Sketchbook (Teen Wolf)

This one is for Maichan. I was looking for a simple yet original idea for a fellow artist so I thought of a custom sketchbook. I drew on the cover of a Muji sketchbook an Art Nouveau style Teen Wolf art. A black ballpoint pen, some brown ink and white poster paint and...voilà! The Japanese writings mean "Maichan's sketchbook"

These are all really beautiful! I think my favorite is Sam with the tattoos--aside from the awesome tattoos, everything about him just looks so right.

I have no idea about TW. I couldn't get into the show.
I have to watch it again but it's not my cup of tea TBQH. In addition, I am super busy because of a hurt!Dean project for a friend at the moment.

Excellent job as usual. I especially like the Sam tattoo and Sam wall ones. So much detail in such a small space, creepy and beautiful at the same time. The Dr. Who is awesome. The sketchbook turned out really well. The flourishes around the title bit are lovely.

Glad you enjoyed the sketchbook. The Art Nouveau art took me ages that's why I was relieved when I realized it wasn't lost in the mail. It took about 1 month for the sketchbook to travel from France to California.
I love adding details, tons of details. The more the better :D I must admit that it's very relaxing to draw. It's like playing crosswords, in a way :)

Oh, you and those ballpoint pens -- WOW! You are positively magical and I will never say anything bad about ballpoints again. ;) They're all gorgeous, but your "Great Wall of Sam" is kind of a masterpiece. He's just so hypnotically -- even painfully -- beautiful. And quite possibly the best thing you've done so far. Brava, you.

So . . . the highlights on the sketchbook cover . . . surely not white pencil with all the ink? White ink? Paint marker? Magic? (And if you say "white-out," I'm just going to go off and cry.)

*cough*...It's a mix between white poster paint and....white-out. *sorry*. White-out is the only thing that stays white, VERY white even when applied on a craft paper like this one. I start with a layer of poster paint, then a big layer of white-out :D

Don't worry, I am not a huge fan of TW either. I am TRYING to love it because everybody says it's SO awesome and that you have to past the first 10 episodes or something but it's hard to find it interesting. Maybe I should try again, I don't know :/
Oh the Doctor one! Do you know it was the first time I was drawing 11th? His lack of eyebrows are a bit baffling at first xD
Thank YOU for your great card! I talked about it in another post! It was so beautiful and the boys looks so happy in it ^o^

Oh my goodness! What lucky card recipients!! The one of Sam's wall collapsing is especially breathtaking--I can't imagine the time that went into drawing all those lines, but holy crap, it is beautiful. I could stare at it for hours and still find new things to be impressed by!

And then I saw ELEVEN WITH A ANTI-DEMON TATTOO and now I am ded. X__________X

So great to see this collection, you had a lot of variety too, not just SPN. I agree that drawing the tardis is hard! Eleven looks great, like every piece! Love Tom Hardy and Jensen together as well <3

IKR? The Tardis shouldn't be hard to draw, it's a BOX, a freaking BOX but I was more worried about the Tardis than I was about Eleven xD Straight lines are terrifying sometimes! ^^;; (like the Impala but that's another story)

I started to draw at 8 and I am now 35 so it's just a question of practice and not giving up. There is a phase when you learn to draw where you skills seem to stagnate and you are sure you are not going anywhere but it doesn't last! Good luck to you with your art :D

I was so afraid about the sketchbook and the Stiles one! It was for the same person and we both thought it was lost in the mail. It took about one month for it to reach California. Usually, it takes only one week, one week and an half ><

Ballpoint pen is a lot of fun! It's the best medium to doodle (and even to create more serious art)
I really can't live without it, my artistic life would be very empty without ballpoint pens :3
