beelikej: (ReverseBang!)
Years ago I had a pink deerhead standing on the shelf above my toilet. One day it broke (I'm not naming names) and ever since I've been looking for a replacement. I couldn't find one anywhere, so finally I figured I could try and make one myself... and that sparkled the prompt I created last November for this year's [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang. Jensen is a deer, I turned Jared into a pink unicorn and of course JDM is a bear. *grins* I don't know, okay, I just imagined lots of furry snuggling;)

My prompt was turned into a fluffy fic, woohoo! Find out below if my dreams came true. I was inspired by the story to make additional art and yes, I created papier-mâché animal heads (no pink deer though;). May I present:

Summary: In a world where shifters are ostracized as freaks of nature, Jensen is desperately trying to figure out what the future will hold for him and his shifter form. Eager to learn more about the reclusive shifter society, he finds a secluded resort run by Jeff that caters exclusively as a vacation spot to shifters of all kinds. Even though he is welcomed there with open arms, Jensen soon discovers that Jeff is keeping a big secret: a pink unicorn named Jared.

Challenges!

Feb. 4th, 2016 02:31 pm
beelikej: SPN behind the scenes S7Ep5 (Work Out Jared)
Yay, today I'm having a pajamaday as a reward for finishing two challenges!
In October 2015(!) I started working on my [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang artwork, it was claimed for a collaboration in November and in the past three months I've created additional pieces and turned the original design into a storybanner. I'm happy to finally be allowed to present all my arsty fiddling and yesterday I unlocked my RB artpost:) I'd love for hear what you think of it: click the teaser to see how those paper tentacles turned out!



I also did the 30 Days ABS Challenge )

This week I'm taking a break from adding to my regular fitness plan, but I think I already know what to do for my next work-out challenge.

I also signed up for another fanart project: I'm doing a collaboration and a solo piece for [livejournal.com profile] spn_meanttobe. These are not due until May, so if anyone has any suggestions on what I could participate in until then? (Preferably one with a tighter schedule;)
beelikej: (ReverseBang!)
After taking a break from last year's edition, I'm back to joining the [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang! As before my main goal was to lure a fellow JDM lover into writing a story to go with my art. (In a Reverse Bang artists make fan-art which is posted anonymously for authors to choose as inspiration for fanfiction.)
That mission is almost accomplished, because there will be a Jeff/Jensen fic soon. It's taking a little more time than planned, but I simply couldn't wait any longer to show you what I made.
Mission accomplished!! May I present to you:

Banner 650px WithinMyReach-BLJ2016.jpg

Fic Title: Within My Reach
Author: [livejournal.com profile] sasha_dragon
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] beelikej
Medium: Paper & Photoshop!
Fandom/Genre: Supernatural/RPS AU
Pairing(s): Jensen Ackles/Jeffrey Dean Morgan
Rating: PG-13 (Art & Story;)
Word Count: 18500
Summary: For Jeff life as an Evolutionary Enhanced isn't easy. For a start there's the prejudice he faces daily, along with a constant struggle to find clothes that will fit over his tentacles. But these difficulties pale into insignificance when Jeff is faced with trying to woo the man of his dreams.

MORE TENTACLES )

Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] sasha_dragon for taking a step into the JDM side of our fandom and offering a very interesting take on the tentacle-trope.

Also thanks to my fellow artists [livejournal.com profile] sillie82 and [livejournal.com profile] bflyw for the handholding behind the scenes. And as always a big thank you to everyone stopping by to take a look:)

J.

If you can't get enough of my silly fiddling, check out my updated Masterlist of artsy creations;)
beelikej: (Jared is happy.)
Yay, I was claimed in the [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang and it happened a lot faster than I thought:) So many authors responded in the first few minutes that I hadn't even noticed, heehee. I think most of my friends' artworks were grabbed too, but there are still a couple of beauties left, so if you're an author looking for inspiration, check out these artprompts! (If you haven't signed up yet, you are still allowed to do that)

I'm not a fan of Facebook, but I couldn't stay away when I heard Jared was doing a livevideo. Poor guy's connection kept crashing, so he ended up with four short vids, but they are so sincere and cute and pretty, I recommend watching them if you need a bit of sunshine:)

So, now that I lured an author for my RB artwork (whose identity I will disclose as soon as the revealpost goes up;) I have a total of two (2!) projects to work on. A nice change from the frantic days of last winter. I've already mailed back and forth, which is always such a joy and with Jared being a sweetie and J2-Sunday in DenverCon coming up, I'm in love with fandom all over again.

Oh, the other project is a commission from the charity auction and per bidder [livejournal.com profile] tipsy_kitty's wishes it will be a surprise until it's done;)

Now I will snuggle on the couch to continue my reread of the Hungergames series. I'm organizing a moviemarathon of the first three films in my attic next weekend and I need to be prepared! (We'll all go see the final film in the cinema as soon as possible afterwards).

What are you doing this weekend?
beelikej: paperportraits of J2 with text (ReverseBang J2swap)
Goodmorning, goodafternoon, goodevening fellow artists,
While we are waiting for [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang to open claims, I'm squeeing behind the scenes by Gmail with [livejournal.com profile] sillie82 (Netherlands) and [livejournal.com profile] bflyw (Norway). If you want to join our mailthread of fanfun and support, let me know and I'll add you: beelikej@gmail.com

Authors, hope you manage to grab an inspiring piece of art! Good luck, everyone:)

If you've recovered from Monday's art-presentation, I'd like to invite you over to look at my final set of artwork for the SPN_RPF Reverse Bang:) This one contains no paperporn, but I hope you'll enjoy it anyway. *grins* I'm currently waiting for the masterpost to appear in the community, but you are already welcome in my own journal to take a peek at... A New Kind Of Superhero!

J.
beelikej: (ReverseBang!)
My second artpresentation for the SPN_RPF_ReverseBang is up! I stayed up until 2:30 a.m. to finish that beast of a post, but I'm pretty sure you won't need that long to scroll through the digital designs and papercutpieces (but feel free to spend a lot of time with Jeff & Jensen;) Come check it all out before the crowd: this way to the pretty (and the awesome, awesome fic!)
beelikej: (ReverseBang!)
Originally this would be my final presentation for this edition of [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang, and then I could have stated how I saved the best for last. Not to dismiss my other artwork (or collaborators), but because this is my OTP and the main reason why I join this challenge*;) Due to a change in the schedule there will be another artpost the day after tomorrow. But I do hope y'all take time to appreciate this rare pair before attention is yet again drawn towards the fandomfavorites;)

In a Reverse Bang artists make fan-art which is posted anonymously for authors to choose as inspiration for fanfiction. *I admit my main goal for RBB-arting is to lure prompt a fellow JDM-loving fan into writing. There is only a relatively small group of people who understands the chemistry between these guys, so I was immensely pleased to yet again catch an awesome author who's on the same wavelength; [livejournal.com profile] ashtraythief wrote a fabulous story to go with this scene I imagined:



(Click for bigger;)

Fic Title: Hungry
Author: [livejournal.com profile] ashtraythief
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] beelikej
Medium: Photoshop & Paper!
Fandom/Genre: Supernatural/RPS, AU, Romance, Erotica
Pairing(s): Jensen Ackles/Jeffrey Dean Morgan
Rating: NC17
Word Count: 19,300
Summary: Jeff has been away on a business trip for three months and Jensen has missed him. A lot. Too bad their reunion takes place at a family dinner, which means meddling family members and not enough privacy to deal with the important things.

It was such a joy to brainstorm with [livejournal.com profile] ashtraythief about how we could get these guys all worked up *grins*. I was very pleased to find that our pervy minds went into the same direction and I was inspired to once again venture into sketching some naughty scenes. \o/ So while most of the artwork is G-rated I did make two paperscenes that can be categorized as R/NC17. I put them behind a spoiler-cut, so you can only see them if you click that. You can scroll down safely;)

I usually mention credits for references in the artpost, but sometimes I have to make a separate sourcepost to save space. Below are links to the original pics I used as bases or examples for my artwork for the latest two SPN-reversebangs. Obviously credit goes to the original photographers; when their names are not attached to the file, I mention the site where I found the image. If you notice original material that you are the owner of or know the origin of, tell me and I will credit!

NOTE
Over the years I have build a massive personal archive of pictures of pretty people, but I haven't always saved information of origins. If there is no specific source mentioned, you can be sure I found the photo in one of the celebrity galleries mentioned in my artwork sources tag.
beelikej: (Felicia)
Another addition to my 2013 artwork for the [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang has been lying in wait for a while, but is finally unlocked now (Feb. 12). This is the second set of artwork I made, but due to circumstances beyond my control I'm presenting it last. Which is fitting, because it was originally the third prompt I submitted;) I made an effort to do something very different than for my other designs, so no papercutting this time, instead I messed around with Illustrator, markers, crayons and Photoshop...

In a Reverse Bang artists make fan-art which is posted anonymously for authors to choose as inspiration for fanfiction. I hadn't planned another prompt; I made this piece as a speedchallenge to myself to see how fast I could set up an illustration with melted crayons. Since it came out reasonable recognizable and the mods were practically begging for more art, I decided to submit it last minute after all :-p (Entry #2024) My superhero trope was chosen by [livejournal.com profile] cherry_kiss_8 who wrote a story featuring all of our SPN/RPF/WB/CW favorites! This inspired me to draw the whole crew in comicbookstyle...



Fic Title: Go Save The World, I'll Be Around
Author: [livejournal.com profile] cherry_kiss_8
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] beelikej
Medium: Illustrator, marker, melted crayons, Photoshop
Fandom/Genre: Supernatural/RPS, AU, Adventure
Pairing(s): Jared Padalecki / Jensen Ackles
Rating: PG13
Word Count: 14,500 (ish)
Warnings: Mild violence. Mention of bomb threats, use of guns and other weapons.
Summary: Jensen is a superhero, Misha owns a super lab, Richard is a super evil genius and Jared just wants to go one week without a guy with a bad moustache and a super evil monologue trying to ruin his goddamn life.

Art is rated G and there is one slightly spoilery scene, but you can safely look before you read the story.

Last but not least thank you, visitor, for stopping by. I'd love to know what you think of this set, so as usual you're invited to leave a comment. Whether it's long or short, praise or concrit; it's always nice to know you took a look at my art!

beelikej: paperportraits of J2 with text (ReverseBang J2swap)
Yes, I am aware it's 2014 now, but I worked on this challenge between September and December of last year, so I'm archiving it with my 2013 artwork. :-p
I submitted three pieces for this edition of the [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang and used very different media for each of them. This first presentation is a further exploration of paper-cutting. My goal was yet again to see how much I could reduce shapes and colours while still creating recognizable characters.

In a Reverse Bang artists make fan-art which is posted anonymously for authors to choose as inspiration for fanfiction. I made a papercut image of Jensen and Jared casting each other's shadows. (Entry #2013) My prompt was picked by the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] firesign10 who wrote an intense and emotional story about bodyswapping. (Don't worry, it has some lighthearted moments too;) I made a couple more paperpieces to illustrate the story. May I present our awesome collaboration:



Fic Title: A Mile In My Shoes, A Lifetime In My Head
Author: [livejournal.com profile] firesign10
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] beelikej
Medium: Paper!
Fandom/Genre: Supernatural/RPS, Non-AU, Drama
Pairing(s): Jared Padalecki / Jensen Ackles
Rating: NC17
Word Count: 19,920
Warnings: mental illness; suicidal ideation; magic
Summary: One morning Jared and Jensen wake up and find they've been body-swapped. At first it's pretty funny as they deal with being in each other's body! But things quickly get serious when Jared falls ill and Jensen can't seem to help him. Secrets can't be hidden when you're in your partner's head...

Art is rated G and contains no spoilers, so you can safely look at it before you go off to read the story.

I love my authors.


That is all.

My brain is buzzing with ideas. Sleep now.
beelikej: (Ventimiglia & Padalecki)
You all know I had my doubts about participating in the [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang this year, but yesterday's claiming madness really got me back into the spirit of the challenge. :-D It was crazy to see how fast all the authors handed in their wishlists; within a minute there were already more than a 100 comments and it was impossible to keep track of the claims. Instead I had a lot of fun chatting with fellow artists, especially when I tried to find my entry 2013 with a ctrl-f search, heehee. When the stampede was over and the dust settled, we were able to go through the choices and I discovered all my artwork was claimed, wahey!

I managed to contact two of the three authors late last night and we have already done some brainstorming even!
Still waiting for a reply to my third introductionmail. Dear author, if you're stalking my journal, please don't be scared off by my crazyness enthusiasm, I'm harmless, really.

Are there any authors on my list who signed up, but didn't get around to claiming yet? There are still some awesome artworks available! (Later today it's also open for second claims and multitasking artists, keep an eye on the community for the latest news!)

*rolls up sleeves* Time to start arting! Wishing all my fellow artists and their authors a great time. Have a wonderful collaboration, everyone! Fandom rocks \m/
beelikej: (Uil)
Wow, people. What a wonderful bunch of artwork in this year's [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang! I went through all of the previewposts at work (it was quiet, okay) and seriously didn't see anything that wasn't either a great idea or fantastic art or at the very least an amazing effort to try something new and some pieces were all of the above. Praise to all. Kudos to the two video-artists; I already struggle with a still scene, creating a story in motion just amazes me. Also special mention to the two artist who worked with wool as a medium; those crocheted and embroidered characters are very cool.

I took me a while to get into the spirit and claimday is gonna be crazy, but I'm very excited now! Bring it on!

Just forget about the end results. Remember the gratification comes in the work, not in the end result. Just remember who you are and what you are, and don’t take any of their guff out there. - James Dean

From this Tumblr post. Now, why don't I have a James Dean Icon? Will get on that after the Reverse Bang :-p

One more night until RBB previews, two more until Claimsday. If anyone is on G-chat; I will be online for squee and freaking out! I'm BeeLikeJ on Gmail if you want to connect;)
beelikej: (ReverseBang!)
Pfew. I received confirmation on my third piece of artwork for the ReverseBang Challenge. \o/ Waiting for that was already nerve-wracking; this is not promising for Claimday. Which I also have to wait for until SATURDAY. I have no patience for this, aaaaargh. Also: more bitching behind the cut )
So, fellow artists? Happy with yourself or slightly worried? Made more than you planned for as well? Talk to me! Authors, you can still sign up until Friday. (As artworks are anonymously presented from Thursday on, you can even check out if we are worthy to play with before you decide. What? I have a lot of insecurities emotions about this, okay.)
beelikej: (Uil)
I'm huddling close to the computer, because that is next to the only heater I can get to work. (That's my excuse). Tomorrow a technician will come over to check the heating-system. Should be here sometime between 08:00 and noon.... Good thing I have nothing planned but fiddling with ReverseBang designs;)
Per the rules I can't show you what I'm working on, but I do want to share the marvelous new light table I managed to score from work (we're clearing out old machines and furniture to make room for new office space). It was even delivered and carried up to my apartment! )
Isn't it a beauty? It has two sets of bright lights and can be turned completley vertical too.
This is just a temporary set up by the way, I may need to redecorate before I decide on a definite place in my backroom.
It's a perfect tool for the kind of paper art I've been experimenting with:) *hugs*

Speaking of experiments; I've also been playing with my camera a bit more. You've seen the zoom-tests (#1 #2) - here's a set of light-tests. When the autumn sun was coming through the air-holes in the stairway to the attic, I couldn't resist trying to grab the shadows it created.

My camera resisted though )

Started rereading The Hunger Games today, because I plan to rewatch the film with J. this weekend (as preparation for a future cinema visit to sequel Catching Fire). I'm in love with Katniss all over again. *happy sigh*

We plan to watch a selection of films varying from blockbusters to art-house films, that either one of us recommended to the other but we never had time to watch before. More about that later. Until the weekend I'll be busy with finishing touches on my second RB-entry. I have tomorrow and Friday off, so that should give me enough time to get it ready. (I was tempted to make a third prompt, but I won't. I need to keep some of my sanity;)
beelikej: (RevBang-JDM)
After lots of deliberation I've decided to sign up for this year's [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang after all. I'm still worried about not being available during the finetuning of the story, but figured I'll at least be able to offer another author a chance to participate. With the artist/author ratio being what it is, I'm even planning to offer two pieces as usual. Who is surprised?

Once again I managed to save up a lot of vacationdays; even after deducting time for my trip to Australia in December, I have seven free days left for the next five weeks! Can't take them in November due to a big project, so it looks like I will have a couple of very short workweeks until then, ha!

Today's unexpected free time will be dedicated to finishing my Early bird admission for the Reverse Bang. I have put aside the elaborate design I had been working on since this summer, because I didn't think it was fair to both me or the potentially prompted author to be extra stressed about last minute adjustments while I'm incommunicado. I hope the new artwork will at least be inspiring, even if it's not a hands on design;) Whatever happens I'm glad I can fiddle with the guys for a bit. :-p

I think all the artists and authors on my flist already did, but just in case you forgot, you can still join!
[artists need to sign up before Oct. 13; claimday is Oct. 26, so authors have until Oct. 25]

Let's do this! *rolls up sleeves*
beelikej: (Ventimiglia & Padalecki)
My Xmas vacation started on Friday and I finally had time and the brainpower to check out the rest of the artwork that was made for the [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang. I was so impressed by all of it, so if you can, you should just check the whole 2012 collection. If you only have time for a quick look, here are some of my favorites that you should definitely give some attention. Bonus story rec at the end!

artrecs RB2012 - part 3! )

Speaking of artwork, yesterday I posted my final designs for this year. I made vampire threesome wallpapers and icons for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_xmas, come over to giggle?
