[Art Post] Roads (Dean, G)

I was lucky enough to be able to grab [ profile] sonofabiscuit77's fic, Roads for [ profile] spn_j2_bigbang this year for art. It's a very, very good fic and just so full of hurt in the best way possible, and I am so thrilled to be able to do art for it.

Because the fic is so dark and hurty I wanted to make sure the art had the proper tone. The scene that stood out to me for that was Dean when he's sitting in the Impala outside of the abortion clinic, imagining what could have happened if things were different.

I drew this all on a black background, which is not as easy as it sounds. But Batman: The Animated Series painted on dark backgrounds to get their atmosphere, and it really does work much better than just painting in the black around everything.

I ended up with a nice movie poster feel to it, IMO, and am very happy. Big, huge, massive thanks both to [ profile] mashimero for reference pics and for [ profile] dimeliora for being one hell of a harsh taskmaster and refusing to let me fuck off in the final hours of this.
