Supernatural Art Rec 10 Meme

About the Art Rec Ten Meme (description taken shamelessly from [ profile] quickreaver 's LJ): sillie82, amberdreams and I were talking about memes and art and stuff, as we do, and we cooked up this opportunity for folks to to shine a little light on our fandom's artists: the ArtRec10 meme! Give us links to ten of your favorite pieces of SPN/RPF fandom artworks. Could be on LJ, tumblr, deviantart, wherever. We know there's lots of faves, but try to pick a few. Let's make today a little more beautiful! Couldn't we use that right now?

Topics may overlap — for instance, your h/c fill may be digital — but we'd like to see ten unique reccs, if you can manage it. Also, be sure to provide a link to the original art, so folks can leave love for the artist. If you choose to post the images, mind the image sizes and be sure to put it all under a cut.

1.) traditional - Dean's faces by Kittrose and Dean by I-have-a-hinger - Dean's faces: I discovered Kittrose through her True Blood fan art and was extatic to know she was also a Supernatural fan. ^o^ She's not only a great CG artist but an amazing traditional artist as well. Look at Dean's eyes in this pic, how expressive they are! The details! Wow ♥ . - Dean: I-have-a-hunger is really a master when it comes to watercolors. They always manage to have light and transparent textures, it's incredible. And they never forget Dean's freckles as well ^^

2.) digital (handpainted/drawn via digital means) - Light a Candle by Le-Shae - I had a great laugh when someone on Tumblr asked the artist how the lights (or candles, whatever) could have been put inside the bottles that hung from the tree and the answer was just "Ooops". (⌒_⌒;) It doesn't matter, this art is fabulous. From the idea, to the perspective, to the shadows and highlights, it's really amazing.

3.) Mixed Media - A world without you by Nargynargy - It doesn't look like it but this artwork is a photomanipulation retouched digitally with an incredible texture work. I really thought it was a digital painting at first. Nargynargy is really the first name that comes to my mind when asked "Amongst all the artists who left the Supernatural fandom, who do you miss the most?". I don't think that a lot of people realize the skills it takes to obtain such amazing an texturizing and retouching, that's why it absolutely drives me mad when some people on Tumblr ask me "why do you love and rec' her work? It's just photomanips, she's not a real artist". Shut up, you have no idea what you are talking about. And I'm sure you're the same kind of muppet who says that a real artist doesn't use reference pictures.

4.) alternative media (paper cut-outs, stitchery, jewelry, cosplay) - Supernatural charms by Whitemilkcarton - Aren't these three little charms absolutely the cutest? I'm always in awe of people who can produce such tiny items with so many details. I mean, look at Dean's front hair! ♥

5.) photomanip/graphics - Jared Padalecki by Mirta5 and all the graphics from Art in Motion (Thebratfarrar) - Jared Padalecki: The Russian fandom has amazing manippers! This manip is beautiful because you not only don't have a "head pasted on" effect but the amount of details is amazing. I lost it at Jared's reflexion on the counter. And the whole pic looks so smooth! Love the textures! Art in motion: I'm a sucker for mood boards and movie stills so I'm a huge fan of this Tumblr account. Unfortunately, they seem to be on a break but you can still visit their archive. I really like their posts. Finding the right pictures to create a coherent post and show the beauty of the cinematography of Spn isn't that easy and Thebratfarrar really does it brilliantly. In addition, this Tumblr is very useful when you are an artist: I use it sometimes to find inspiration for lighting in my art or to create color palettes.

6.) h/c - Dean by Loading (红闷蹄) - Dean at the hospital! What not to love! Ok, it's more "hurt" than "comfort", I know, I could I have found something a bit more cheerful but you know me by now, I love sad artworks.

7.) horror - I need you (Gen, Dean/Castiel undertones) by L-a-m-o-n and and God's creation by Littleskrib - I need you: I can't tell you the skills it takes to reach this level in gif animation. L-a-m-o-n (midgetbanana on Tumblr) posted a WIP explaining their technique and it was insane. It looks like a gif taken from an anime. It's smooth, the lighting is amazing. And it fits so well to the horror theme! God's Creation: It's a simple concept (a play on water reflexion) but what an amazing idea! It works so well with demon!Dean and the mark of Cain. I LOVE Dean's skin texture here.

8.) shmoop - Yah Brothers (Sam/Dean) by Polar1107 and A bad photo (j2) by Marikaart - Yah, brothers: It's pretty rare to see the Winchesters smiling and happy and...not dead! I really love how the artist drew the boys' muscles, particularly their arms (bonus: the sketch below the main illustration). A Bad Photo: In addition to being ridiculously cute, this art is a rare object. How? It's done in Adobe Illustrator, meaning it's vector illustration not your "everyday" digital painting. I think that Marika is one of the only artists who uses this software and believe me, it's not easy T__T

9.) nsfw - Good Morning (Dean/Castiel) by Patatat and Sam I am (Sam/Dean) by A Biting Smile - Good morning: the way the art is presented like a comic through a series of panels is very original and the brush strokes are to die for. Not to mention the desaturated palette. Not to mention there's something very erotic about Cas' lips in this one ♥ - Sam I am: Everything is awesome in this one, the pose (an anatomic nightmare if you are an artist...), the gradients on S&D's muscles, the skin texture, the palette. So much emotion! And you have a bit of hurt!Sam too ♥

10.) WILD CARD! Present for Quickreaver by Becc-j - I still don't know what I prefer about this one, the glasses, Jared smoking a cigarette (it's pretty rare to find this in Spn fan art) or just the textures and the general mood of the picture. This one was my phone wallpaper during at least a month. I absolutely love it. ♥

Hope you enjoyed the rec, leave some kudos/comments/love to all these artists if you can. If they are on Tumblr, just add /ask after their URL and it will lead you directly to their inbox.
