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

Fic title: The Extraordinary Experiences of An Unusual Sidekick in the City
Author name: [ profile] truelyesoteric
Artist name: [ profile] kidezt

Rating: NC-17
Word count: ~44K

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 [ 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 [ profile] shinigami_yumi, who without her help and critical advice, I'll be making even worse costuming decisions.

Freaking awesome! I love that you made the piece a comic book cover. It pairs excellently with the story, obviously. And it just looks amazing! Gah, I wish I could explain how much I love this! I love your visualisation of their suits. I love their faces. There's something about Jensen's shape that I'm really enjoying. The hips, maybe? I just want to paw at them both, anyway! And Jared's-- sorry, Archetype's belt buckle is a touch of genius! ;)

Really gorgeous work, and thank you for sharing!

This is the best comment I've received in a while and I thank you very much! I'm very glad what I did worked for you. :D

The belt buckle was actually the author (truelyesoteric)'s suggestion! I spent some time figuring out how to include the "A" symbol on Archetype's costume when they mentioned about Jared's tendency for belt buckles and voila! It turned out much, much better than the huge "A" I initially had on the expanse of his shoulders and chest. ;)

Ah, collaboration, ain't it grand. :D Obviously I can't speak for how it might've looked in the initial design, but the belt buckle really is great in this final version! I love the shape of it; it feels very natural among the lines around it.

Anyway, you're totally welcome for the comment! Least I can do! :)

Wow, your art is freaking awesome! I love it. It's a great talent you have there. And to be shallow, I love how you got Jared's hair!:D

These are fabulous! I've rec'd here ( I love the vivid colours you've chosen, and how you've handled the text - it has a really dynamic feel. The guys look so badass, and the design for each of them is just awesome.

Oh, gosh. Thank you so much for the rec and thank you for the wonderful comment! I was afraid the designs might have looked a little too bleak, so I'm really glad to know you liked them! <3

Came here from scarlet's rec; HOW DID I MISS THIS?? They're really spectacular and so right for the fic!

Aaaa Thanks so much! :DD
I had a lot of fun designing them! I wish I had more free time during that period. I had many ideas but I had little time to draw them out. Nevertheless, thanks again!

Wow, I love this! You do such a great job of capturing their essential Jared and Jensen-ness while also making them very superhero-y. I love how shiny-black their costumes are, and also I love Jared's hair. Very nice. :)

Thank you!! I'm glad you think they still have their theirness. Drawing based on real people is still a challenge to me, but I'm working to be able to do it better! :D
