Post 2/2 of art master posts for [livejournal.com profile] nukebigbang :) This time, for the author and my good friend, [livejournal.com profile] carolinablu85

Ella - First off, I just wanna say what a nice surprise it was to find out that you were my author. In fact, I was pretty amused by it :) Thank you for writing such a g o r g e o u s story and for rekindling my love for the boys again. I stopped with their storyline around August '09 but I'm determined to catch up with everything I missed (angst and all) after reading your epic tale :') ♥ you and thanks also for being so patient with me for all the little bumps in the road I had! You are awesome, chicka!

OMG. Shirphie, I seriously. Just. Can't. These are beautiful. ICONS. I LOVE ICONS. NO ONE HAS EVER MADE ME FIC-ICONS BEFORE! All of it is just so beautiful and worth the little extra wait ;) And thank you thank you thank you for your words and cheerleading through this whole thing, I'm so glad I know you in and out of this fandom. Next Childish Gambino concert, we'll BOTH be there! (And, you know, see you in two weeks! :P)

(Beautiful. By the way. These are beautiful.)

Really? First time for everything, yay! I'm honored to have taken your fic-icon virginity ;)

Thankyouthankyouthankyou. I tried to do your story justice and I'm so pleased that you approve of the art :) It's rare for me to actually like my own art and not critique it to hell either, so haha! :P

I'm so glad I know you in and out of this fandom
And to think we barely knew each other when we met for Lyddie's birthday last November! :P I'm glad that's changed and that I've gotten to know you ♥

Next Childish Gambino concert, we'll BOTH be there!
Definitely. Seriously did not feel epic enough without you there!

Thank you so much for commenting! It was really fun working with ya! Haha and see you in two weeks, my dear ♥

Thank you so very much!!! Didn't exactly blend - more of resizing and copying + pasting, but hey it did the trick this time :)

Yaaaaay more art! I'm so excited for Ella's fic and this goes with it perfectly! It's super gorgeous and I really love how you composed the pictures and the icons are amaaaaazing!

But what I love the most is the way you used the color here. Pink is so not my thing and I'm ridiculously impressed with how you made that work so beautifully. Like, seriously. It really makes it stand out and pop. And I love the way it's almost stained like. Plus, I love how the other one was dark and grungy like you said and this has a completely different feel. I mean, I know they are different fics but you really captured giving them such distinctive vibes. I think that's a lot harder than people realize.

Awesome job! Love your art so much and it's always so fun to see it! ♥

Thank you so much, Steph!!! I tried to pick images I could use that did Ella's fic justice and worked for what happened in the story. I'm so glad you dig it :)))

I'm totally not a pink person either, so I know what you mean! ;) Really, thank you! I truly appreciate it! Since they were different fics, I didn't want the art to have similar styles. I wanted them to be original. So cool that you get that, too :)

You really are too sweet. Thanks for the kind words and for liking my art ♥

Love the artwork and the colour! Purple is my favourite colour.

Great choice of pics - fits the story perfectly.

Purple is my favorite color too! *virtual high five*

Thank you for saying that! Finding the pictures took longer than actually making the art since I wanted it to fit the story. Glad you like my choices :)

Thanks again!

first of all, i am insanely in love with the font you chose for this, bb. like LOVE LOVE LOVE.

i also love how you put like a gradient/shadow thingy over it. love love LOVE the pink/grayish/blackish coloring over this entire thing. the pictures you chose are ACE. i love how they're blocked on top of each other.

oh_freckle textures HOLLA!

i am also really loving the text faded in the background. and the icons! SUCH PRETTY FILTERING. SO GLOWY. SO GLAD YOU DECIDED TO DO ART FOR OUR BIG BANG, DARLING! YOU DID NOT DISAPPOINT!!

I just finished reading Ella's fic. This fits it perfectly. Flashes of the story keep popping into my head while I gaze upon this incredibly beautiful masterpiece. I would pick this book up off the shelves in a heartbeat. Brava.
