*flails happily all over your art*

You were SO awesome to work with! Scarily talented and oh so very patient while my life went to hell in a handbasket. /o\

Your story jumped out at me when I was looking at the prompts. I know I'm not the only one to whom it screamed "WRITE ME! WRITE THIS STORY RIGHT NOW!" so I feel incredibly lucky and privileged to have been the one given the opportunity to put (extra) words to your images. I especially adored the contrast between the current timeline, all the dark blues and purples, and the less saturated sepia tones of the flashbacks to the thirties. Not to mention the blood-red of the Winter Soldier's thoughts and past experiences, which translated in my head to the Winter Soldier's music from the movie (that terrible shrieking sound you hear only when the Winter Soldier is around).

In short, this was brilliant I am the luckiest author alive. <3

oh so very patient while my life went to hell in a handbasket.
No problem! In addition, it's not as of you vanished completely during two months, we talked a lot on Twitter and you asked me for my opinions on tons of stuff like for instance, the flashbacks or the role of Peggy.

I'm very happy you enjoyed how I drew the flashback. I tried to find a way to make them different from the rest but it was hard because the palette had to stay coherent.

that terrible shrieking sound you hear only when the Winter Soldier is around
I read a very interesting article where the composer explained that he wanted something very cold, very mechanic for the Winter Soldier and that the music when the WS was around, was inspired by experimental music and that it had to sound very messy and unstructured. :D

Anyway! It was a pleasure to collaborate with you and thank YOU for this great fic! ^o^

JUST WOW. I don't know much about the universe, but the images, layout, fantastic colors are, well, FANTASTIC!
petite_madamepetite_madame on September 4th, 2014 10:00 am (UTC)
I hope the prompt was understandable even for someone who don't know much about the Marvel movies.
I'm really happy you enjoyed this post :D
Thank you so much ♥

OH holy fuck, i mean, your art is always just incredibly unattainable level of awesome, but dude, this is something else. That banner has such a visceral and gripping artistry in the concept and the execution both, I can't help staring at it. And the comic panels... you've captured their features in all states of emotion so perfectly, it's breath-taking. Can't wait to read the story!
petite_madamepetite_madame on September 4th, 2014 11:01 am (UTC)
I'm sure you're gonna enjoy the story! Ratherastory did a great job and it follows my prompt very closely! ^^

Thank you for enjoying my art in general and the banner in particular!
This banner was the easiest thing to draw, I wish everything was that easy xD (and the tentacles were a lot of fun)

Your icon is SO cute ^o^
Amberamberdreams on September 3rd, 2014 07:47 pm (UTC)
It won't surprise you when I say I knew the prompt was yours... *grin*. Your use of colour just fascinates me, it's like you keep a rainbow in your pocket. Apart from loving the idea behind this comic (and I must read ratherastory's story now too dammit!), I just love what you've done to expand the concept, especially page two - the haunted look on Bucky's face in the penultimate panel on that page, then the gorgeous contrasting reds of the flashback scene below it - wonderful.

I think I'll never manage to hide my style during Reverse Bangs. I presented half finished work for this one but Ratherastory recognized me immediately ^^;;

Awww this is so kind! I love this expression, it's very funny and poetic :3 I'm very happy you enjoyed how I drew the flashback. I tried to find a way to make them different from the rest but it was hard because the palette had to stay coherent.

Thank you so much ♥

These pieces are so wonderful to see all posted together with the great banner :D I've just been looking at it all again and I'm curious, did you draw everything then scan it in and add the colours etc? I'm in love with the textures and details how everything has a bit of grain to it - it all looks very beautiful <3 Also whining? What...there was no whining, I don't recall that, it was a huge honour and pleasure to be able to help in any way and thank you for the help on my own RBB prompt as well :)
petite_madamepetite_madame on September 4th, 2014 10:58 am (UTC)
Also whining? What...there was no whining
Ah, so "gna gna gna it's hard", "gna gna gna I'm tired", "gna gna gna I'm not done" wasn't whinning? xD Oh good then! ^^

did you draw everything then scan it in and add the colours etc? I'm in love with the textures and details

I did it for the first page (scanning + redrawing) but I drew the rest directly in PS (page 2 and 3). Scanning + redrawing doesn't help a lot when I draw comics because I tend to add a lot of elements in the page, change the layout, sometimes change the pose or the reference pictures. I prefer working directly in PS.
For instance if you look at page 1, the bottom panel, I added the Winter Soldier walking near the KGB files (he wasn't there on the prompt I submitted but when I drew the page, there was clearly something missing on the left)

The grainy effect is obtained thanks to two things:
- I added just a bit of noise (Gaussian, monochromatic, 1 or 2 points)
- I added at a very low opacity a grainy texture on some part of the pic (soft light, I think the opacity was about 30%)

I hope I answered your questions ^^
Thank you so much for your help and your support Becc!
You are always so kind (AND PATIENT) with me.

petite_madamepetite_madame on September 4th, 2014 10:46 am (UTC)
Loan me your powers, PM!!!
I can't, I need them for the Spn Reverse Bang xD I've just found an idea and I'm gonna start working on the idea from Monday ^^

Thank you so much! I'm very happy you enjoyed the comic so much ♥
The banner was the easiest thing to draw, I wish everything was that easy xD

I love the piece you did for the title with Bucky peeling the winter soldier away. The rest of it is stunning and I really like the way you've used color. Great job capturing the characters and the emotion of the piece.
petite_madamepetite_madame on September 4th, 2014 10:42 am (UTC)
Thank you so much ^^
I had a lot of fun with the palette and I played a lot with contrasts and complementary colors like orange and blue.
The banner was the easiest thing to draw, I wish everything was that easy xD
