kelleigh: (sn - [jensen] is he for real?)
For the first [ profile] j2_reversebang challenge, I had the chance to create some art for a theme I'd always wanted to read! And then I was lucky enough to have [ profile] non_tiembo_mala write it for me! So without further ado...

WHEN YOU FIND ME [you'll search no more]
Story by: [ profile] non_tiembo_mala
Art by: [ profile] kelleigh

When Jared unexpectedly finds himself in possession of a stolen jewel that belongs to the mysterious and powerful sorceress who lives in the woods behind his castle, he feels compelled to return the stone right away. The witch surprises him by offering to grant him one wish, and the last thing he expects is to fall in love.

Read it here! On LiveJournal or on AO3!

This is really only the third story I've done art for (and for good reason, I'm a terrible artist!), but this time I got to craft the prompt first instead of fitting a particular story. This is a prompt I've always wanted to read, but it needed a good fantasy author to write it, and [ profile] non_tiembo_mala totally stepped up! I was lucky that my first two authors dropped out, truly 😋 Pinch hitters for the win!

Thank you, [ profile] non_tiembo_mala, you are the best! ❤️❤️❤️

Media: Prismacolor pencils, photo manipulations, aesthetic.
About the art: I started out drawing the star sapphire oh a whim thinking I could connect it to a fantasy element. But I really liked how it turned out and built the rest of the pieces around it. I also drew the sunset scene. The images of Jared and Jensen are photo manips (at which I improved greatly from from the first draft of the art I considered submitting, trust me!). The title banner came about from me trying to be clever with layers, and was actually a mistake but since [ profile] non_tiembo_mala and I loved the result, I decided to keep going 😋

So thanks for bearing with me during this challenge! Now what are you still doing here? go read the story!

AO3 links up soon!

I am glad it all worked out for you!!! I was really upset on your behalf and was crying to [ profile] non_tiembo_mala about it. Like I was just heartbroken for you. I know what it is like to create art for these and then not get a story...

As it were, I was lucky to have two claims on two of my pieces, since one of the authors for each one ended up dropping when posting started. ::hugs::

No, *I* am the lucky one here! Just wait :P You gave me everything I never knew I wanted (and so much of what I did!) I'm so glad it worked out for us to collab on this, it ended up being absolutely perfect.

Oh wow, I love the pictures you chose of the boys :) The aesthetic is sooo good! Blue is my favorite color and it fits so well. And I have to admit I stare at the picture of them making out on Jensen's bed, at Jensen's back and Jared's thigh for a very long time. *coughs* All the pictures in the aesthetic are very beautiful and fitting! Such nice combination :) Love it!
Now I'm off to read!

Blue just seemed to work out given that the Star Sapphire was the first piece I did ♥ Thank you so so much for commenting! I get even more nervous about art posts than fic posts :P

I have just finished reading the story and your artwork which features throughout is also why I loved the story.
Just the visuals with the written word and your incredible art is amazing.
From the opening banner to the final one, each piece is wonderful and so colourful.
The one where we can see Jensen's naked back and Jared's naked thigh is stunning.
Thank you so much for sharing.

I'm so happy you read the story! [ profile] non_tiembo_mala did a freaking fantastic job with the story, and it was something I'd always wanted to read, and she wrote it all perfectly. I'm just very lucky she wanted to work with me :P

Thank you so so much! ♥

Oh, BB, you've truly outdone yourself!! I can't believe that banner was a mistake??? It gives such a perfect sense of atmosphere, not just for where the story is set but also for what kind of story it is. I told you when prompts originally posted, but I genuinely can't tell--even after you told me--which of the bits in the aesthetic are drawn and which aren't. Such beautiful use of color and light in your drawn pieces and that manip of the boys kissing in bed is. Ahem. VERY AESTHETICALLY PLEASING, YES.

Lovely, lovely art set and such a great set-up for a magical world/story. Great job!

TOTAL MISTAKE. I was messing around with layers and trying to do something completely different when that effect just ~happened. I got so lucky throughout this process, even lucky that two authors dropped out because that gave me [ profile] non_tiembo_mala who wrote the perfect story. Everything I wanted (down to the porn) :P
