Spn_J2_Bigbang 2011 - ACE  
Spn_J2_Bigbang 2011 - ACE


Welcome to the Art Post for Ace, a fan fiction byunreckless  that should have been posted for the 2011 spn_j2_bigbang . Unfortunately, the fic was never posted so everything that's left is the art ^^;; In other words guys, don't ask me for the link to the fic because it doesn't exist.





A big thank you to maichan , artmetica  andwendy  for the moral support during the whole process.

All the arts are available on megaupload (too many arts to be posted separately on image shack)

WARNINGS:
- All the arts are SFW except maybe p.11 of the Soundtrack Arts (Oasis - Don't go Away). The boys are just together fully clothed on a bed but you never know how can Mr. Boss or Mum can react! 
- The soundtrack arts can be spoilery so I advise you to read the story first. They are a kind of retrospective of Jensen's life so beware of spoilers.

You will find in the file:

- The Main Arts: 6 CG paintings.
- The Arts for the soundtrack (download the songs separately below)
- The "small arts" (banners - divider - title + two bonus arts)
- A Pdf document that will detail the tools of the trade and a WIP (for the Photoshop geeks). You have a spoiler in the PDF but a page will warn you so you can skip the spoilery parts. Keep also in mind that I'm not a native English speaker so, I'm sorry in advance for the mistakes in the Photoshop Rambling.
Download the Artist Soundtrack HERE (an "Author's soundtrack" is also available at the fic master post)

Example of arts:



Voilà!! This is it for Ace
See you at the end of the month with my new calendar wallpaper and on the 4th of August for my second spn_j2_bigbang  post!

Merci beaucoup! ^o^
J'adore ces yeux qui bougent et que tu as mis dans le titre du commentaire, c'est vraiment marrant :D

Oh man... this is all so pretty. I'm just in awe of your skill. Thanks for adding the 'tools of the trade' PDF btw, I love to see how other artists work, and what they use. :D
petite_madamepetite_madame on July 13th, 2011 09:52 am (UTC)
Thank you so much for such a great comment and more particularly for enjoying the PDF. I never know if what I write in my Photoshop Rambling is useful or not so it's great to have that kind of feedback ♥
maichan: stock cameramaichan on July 12th, 2011 11:10 pm (UTC)
I'm just happy everything worked out in the end after such a rocky start. And I'm so glad you decided to include the "last minute art that doesn't fit with the rest" because that just might be my favorite piece from this entire amazing set. There's just something about watercolors that can't be replicated digitally, even if you did use the computer to retouch the details ;)
petite_madamepetite_madame on July 13th, 2011 09:55 am (UTC)
The fic isn't online yet but unreckless wrote in her LJ that it should be posted this morning, USA time, so wait and see :D
You are perfectly right about watercolors. Even if some softwares like Painter and Artrage are awesome, they never manage to copy perfectly the rendering of watercolors. It's very complex.
Thank you so much for your great feedback about my arts in general but more particularly for the watercolor one ^^
(and for the moral support during the whole process) ♥

So beautiful! I really don't know how you always do that, but please don't stop. Ever. *hugs*
petite_madamepetite_madame on July 13th, 2011 09:57 am (UTC)
I really don't know how you always do that
That's why I wrote a Photoshop Rambling PDF, to show how precisely how I did all that ^o^ Ha! ha! ha :D
Thank you so much for the amazing feedback about my arts ♥
*hugs too*

I hope to surprise you again with the second prompt ^o^ I will post it on August the 4th and it will be 100% digital this time :)
Thank you very much for your great comment ♥

Darn I'll have to wait until I get home to view the whole series; my iPhone just doesn't cut it. Looks beautiful so far, tho!
petite_madamepetite_madame on July 13th, 2011 10:52 am (UTC)
I know that hosting everything at megaupload isn't very convenient but there was SO many arts, I didn't know what to do xD
I hope you will enjoy the whole series. Thank you so much for stopping by ♥

Just lovely and amazing as always--you do incredible work, and it's made me impatient for this story!!!

Unreckless said that the fic should be posted this morning (USA time), so I hope that it will be very soon. I unlocked yesterday late at night and now, like you I'm waiting for the official BB post xD
Thank you so much for the great comment about my arts ♥

i can't get over how much art you did for this fic! everything looks so incredible, too. i especially love all the different soundtrack pics, jared's baseball card, and "here, smile". (jared looks a little o.O in that pic but jensen looks so pensive and like he's concentrating really hard. it's a good look on him.)

edited to add that i really like the extra-art-that-didn't-fit that you put in the pdf.

i can't get over how much art you did for this fic!
You know me now, things always get out of hand with me! At the beginning, the soundtrack had only 5 tracks but little by little the number of arts raised up to 10 or something xD
It's the same thing for my second prompt :/ I still have 2 arts to complete but there are SO MANY!! Somebody LOCK me!!!!
Thank you so much for the great comment and for enjoying the watercolor drawing too ♥

This is so gorgeous. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.

Your welcome ;) Now you have to finish the fic! I'm sure that a lot of people are looking forward to reading your J2 baseball story. Hang in there, it's almost the end! ♥

These are absolutely stunning. Jensen in the rain is particularly fantastic.

geez, i DLed the pics hours ago, but forgot to leave a comment until just now *facepalm*

i loved everything abut these, they're so beautiful, and i loved how the lighting highlighted certain parts :D
petite_madamepetite_madame on July 13th, 2011 11:10 am (UTC)

What would my post be without your perky nipples xD

Ah the highlights...I'm the queen of the strange light sources and of the lighting that comes out of nowhere ^^ My pics looks like Bollywood posters ^^;;
Thank you so much for the great comment ♥

Oh my god, I'm dying here. Jensen with the camera.... you so so rock *____________*
petite_madamepetite_madame on July 13th, 2011 11:11 am (UTC)
This art was done at the last minute, I hesitated to post it and finally, it's everybody's favorite xD
Thank you so much for the great comment about my arts ♥

wow, so much art!! There was a really great feeling overall, I liked the style a lot, it had a lot of impact and really told the story. Half way through looking at all the art, I thought, 'I'll have to ask PM for a tutorial on some of this' but then you included one!! You've done so much work and it all looks amazing and very realistic.
There is just too much to comment on each piece, but just wanted to add that the Ace logo looks great and it was really interesting to learn how you coloured your pencil sketches…just brilliant <3
petite_madamepetite_madame on July 13th, 2011 11:23 am (UTC)
I already posted a tutorial about coloring graphite sketches but it wasn't complete and I recently changed my technique a bit. In addition, posting everything in a pdf is very convenient and easier to read. xD People often ask me here or on Tumblr how I do it, what kind of brushes I use, what kind of layers, etc, so I try to post a tutorial every time I can ♥
I'm terribly sorry, I saw that you posted an amazing Dean art but I didn't have the time so far (I have a RIDICULOUS amount of tabs open in Chrome) I am completely LOST!!!
Thank you so much for the great comment about my arts Becc ♥

Your art for this story is just amazing and really makes me want to read the story :D

My favorite piece is probably "Number 66 - Padalecki". I don't even know why, there's just something about it.

OK I freak out everytime you post anything and I'm gonna do it again XD You did a great job on everything, from the banners, logo, main art, even the bonus art *_*

Poster Art: Jensen's face!! You really captured his likeness and mood with the lighting. The photo/poster behind him is very detailed you can even see the creases O_O My fav part of this pic is Jensen's hands, so perfect! ♥
The Rookies: JARED! O_O *gapes* The coloring is so vivid, and you drew (re-drew!!) very detailed backgrounds. Love their uniform! ^^ ♥ I think this could be my favorite pic, I dunno it's hard ;p
The best year of his life: Hehe Jensen looks really happy here, seems to be the best year of Jensen's life ^^ ♥
Number 66: Ooh! Great likeness comes with an awesome pose too! :D
Here, smile: Jared! ♥_♥ Very nice grayscale/color thing you got here!
Swan Song: Wow! His expression and the pose you chose for this are very fitting *_*

Haven't DL'd the soundtrack yet, but will do after writing this XD
And I love your tutorials! Thank you for including it here! Please keep making them? Would love to take glimpses inside your brilliant mind and techniques, you know a lot about drawing and Photoshop!
petite_madamepetite_madame on July 14th, 2011 07:14 pm (UTC)
When I saw your comment starting by "∑(O_O;)" I thought that someone was writing me comment in Russian or in Greek ^o^

Poster Art: This one drove me nuts. I think I spent one week working on it, dropping it, coming back to it, reworking it. I took care of the hand because they are my weak point. I'm Ok with faces but hands... :/ In addition, I had problem finding a reference picture. I had to put myself in front of a mirror with a box in my hand to have the right position for the fingers.
The Rookies: I agree about the colors being vivid. They are a little bit too flashy now that I look at them. I always exaggerate when it comes to color saturation. I'm gonna go to India and work for the Bollywood industry xD
The best year of his life: I drew this one at the last minute. It should have been a banner and I turned it into a "real art" later :)
Number 66: I found the pose in a Japanese magazine except that the guy was very "petite". I kept the same body position but I changed his body structure to turn a 175cm highschooler playing baseball into a big 195cm American guy like Jared :D
Here, smile: I was afraid that Jared looked a little bit too much like Sam because I used a Spn screencap as a reference picture
Swan Song: here again, I found the perfect pose in a Japanese magazine about baseball except that the guy was in a very good mood and that he was leaving the field after his team had won xD

Haven't DL'd the soundtrack yet, but will do after writing this XD
I hope you will like the songs. They are a bit slow. The songs I chose for my next BB arts are much more Rock n' Roll

And I love your tutorials! Thank you for including it here! Please keep making them?
I have no idea what I'm going to post for my next BB xD The arts will be a bit different because I used, in addition to Photoshop and Painter, Paint Tool SAI :D

Thank you so much for the great comment about my art ♥
I'm sorry I didn't comment on your new D/C art yet. I posted a new Dean art yesterday and I didn't expect to have so MANY comments!! I can't believe it!
