Art: The Extraordinary Experiences of an Unusual Sidekick In the City (J2 Big Bang)

This is the art post for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang's 2013 challenge.

Fic title: The Extraordinary Experiences of An Unusual Sidekick in the City
Author name: [livejournal.com profile] truelyesoteric
Artist name: [livejournal.com profile] kidezt
Genre: J2 RPS AU
Pairing: Jensen/Jared
Rating: NC-17
Word count: ~44K
Warnings: Superhero level violence

Summary: Jared Padalecki, Class Two Superhero, has lived his entire life in his small town. Another disappointing Superboyfriend is the kick that he needs to get out. He arrives in the City, expecting to be overwhelmed, instead it seems that he finds a whole new world. He finds City rules to be stricter, he finds that the caliber of the bad guys are over the top, and he finds that the other Supers are a little crazy. It seems like this world is nothing he ever wanted and everything that he needed.

Phew! I'm finally done after going through a big scare the morning of my posting date when I received a hard disk drive error on my pc (to my utter horror). Thankfully, and to my great relief, I managed to salvage a backup of my work files and finished them on my cranky, old laptop.

A BIG thank you to [livejournal.com profile] truelyesoteric for her great story as well as her complete patience and understanding in my constant nitpicking and bother about her fic. It's been a fun experience drawing for this, and I enjoyed coming up with the outfits! I would also like to extend a thank you to [livejournal.com profile] shinigami_yumi, who without her help and critical advice, I'll be making even worse costuming decisions.

This art is awesome! You did a wonderful job! Now I'm even more excited to read the story! ♥

Thank you very much! I hope you'll enjoy reading the story as much as I did! ♥

Awesome !!! I was eager to see the art for this one since I couldn't claim it first. ;)

Thank you!! It was quite an epic rush of claiming. *laughs*

Phew I'm (selfishly!) very glad you managed to retrieve your lovely art from your hard drive - yay for backups! Ok I confess, I really want to see them in black rubber suits and you have fed my desires admirably!

[identity profile] kidezt.livejournal.com 2013-06-25 04:47 am (UTC)(link)
Haha I'm very glad myself! Yay for backups indeed! :)
Apparently my hard disk drive was declared officially done for, so I need to get a new one. Bless backups.

Thank you! I admit I have a thing for men in tight suits. *_*

I LOVE LOVE LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE YOUR ART!!!! and why the fuck your author did not use them???? Seriously, as an artist, these things make me ANGRY.... but hey, again, good job!!!! and of course, the file I´ve done with the fic is with your amazing art!!!!

[identity profile] truelyesoteric.livejournal.com 2013-06-24 08:30 pm (UTC)(link)
Because of the hard drive issue I posted first and then added the art, which took a couple minutes. If you look it is up now. There is no point in doing a big bang if you aren't gong to use the art.

I have so absolutely loved playing costume designer with you. I still can't get over how much I adore Jared's hair (and the non stuffed crotch of course). You did an absolutely amazing job. AMAZING. It's been so much fun. I can't wait to follow you and see what you do next....good luck with the writing too.

*snickers* The crop cut off some of his amazing bulge, sadly. Thank you for giving me such an awesome story and so much freedom to work with! I still have a few Big Bangs yet for the rest of the year. Thank you for the luck too!

Wonderful art! It's so great to see art that really fit the genre of the story. I can't wait to read it now.

[identity profile] kidezt.livejournal.com 2013-06-25 04:56 am (UTC)(link)
I am a huge fan of the superhero genre, so this story really appealed to me! It was a lot of fun trying a more comic styled way of lines and shading. Thank you for your comment!

[identity profile] dephigravity.livejournal.com 2013-06-24 09:51 pm (UTC)(link)
Great job, I really like the style and the comic cover layout.

Very cool artwork to go with a very cool story! Well done! So happy to see what you drew compared to what I envisioned as I was reading.

Excellent job!

[identity profile] kidezt.livejournal.com 2013-06-25 06:33 am (UTC)(link)
What did you envision while you were reading? I'm very curious to know these things. My initial mental image for their outfits were actually rather different from what I produced in the end. ;)

Thank you for your comment!

This is so awesome! I love your costume choices and the retro-comic-book vibe of the illustrations!

[identity profile] kidezt.livejournal.com 2013-06-25 06:26 am (UTC)(link)
Thank you! I'm glad you like the costume choices! I went through quite a few of them before settling on the final designs like the ones you see here. :D
(And boy, were there some really ridiculous early designs.)

[identity profile] queeberquabbler.livejournal.com 2013-06-25 03:02 pm (UTC)(link)
Excellent job! Next year when my big bang superhero story comes out, i'm gonna cross my fingers that i get you as the artist :)

[identity profile] kidezt.livejournal.com 2013-06-25 03:21 pm (UTC)(link)
Thank you! I hope I'll have the free time to participate next year. I only started joining Big Bangs this year, so all these are quite new to me, but they're oh-so-fun. :D

I love this so much, holy moly! The costumes are perfect, I just want to peel Jared's right off. *cough*

Thanks for this!

[identity profile] kidezt.livejournal.com 2013-06-25 05:42 pm (UTC)(link)
Take care not to let Jensen catch you doing it. ;)

Thank you so much!

[identity profile] irradiant.livejournal.com 2013-06-25 06:30 pm (UTC)(link)
oh wow these are so amazing. The costumes are so awesome looking and your style is so neat. I love it.

[identity profile] kidezt.livejournal.com 2013-06-26 06:25 am (UTC)(link)
I'm glad you like those costumes! Perhaps one day if I feel up to it I might post the rejected designs. *laughs*

Oh, such fun drawings and those costumes are super cool! Unf. (I also really, really love Jared's hair *ruffles it*)

[identity profile] kidezt.livejournal.com 2013-06-26 07:09 am (UTC)(link)
The costumes were really, really fun to design and draw! :D
(Hair's one of my favourite things to draw. *_* )
