So, a while ago, I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] bandomreversebb...





I really loved Vices and Virtues, and while I didn't do anything as steampunk as they did in their videos, I allowed myself to go a little fantasy with my art for the challenge:




And [livejournal.com profile] theletterelle took up the challenge, writing the first installment of what promises to be an extremely cool urban fantasy epic, Central Park Concerto No. 3 for War: Overture.

Because she's fabulous, she also created a mix!

These are beautiful. I love Spencer's expression, and the vine around his neck.

These are incredibly gorgeous! The colors and the fantastical feel are really amazing. . .

These are both lovely!! They're so evocative - they make me imagine all kinds of things! I also love the colouring - the deceptively festive greens of the first one and the way they only serve to underline the threat of the thorny vines, and the cool blues of the second one and how they make the whole scene feel almost unearthly.

These are beautiful! I love their faces, and the contrast between the two pictures, especially the feeling of motion in Brendon's.

It's been awhile since I looked at these, and I almost forgot how flipping gorgeous they are. The first one in particular is so strong ... you've brought your skill with decorative design elements to bear on the main subject matter of this drawing, and the graceful-yet-menacing vines are just perfect. There's such a great sense of enchantment about that piece, because the vines aren't exactly squeezing Spencer in any tight physical way, and it's all sunny and green, but ... he's clearly not going anywhere, and it's almost more ominous than something more obvious might have been.

Also, you know, hot. I love the vine curling across his throat, jfc.

Having tried to draw someone pushing through spiny branches a few months ago, I know it can be hard to get that sense of resistance across, and you definitely have. I love the sense of abandon Brendon has about him in the second piece, though - he doesn't look as though he's paying those trees much mind, even though they're scratching him up - he's focused on something beyond all that. Lovely. The images work really well together as a set, too.

So great to finally see this posted! It's really great to see you sharing more fanart in general - it deserves to be out there and appreciated. <3
