What's the concept ?

During the year 2011, I will post one drawing a month (alongside other arts, this won't be my only project) all inspired by a fan fiction. (To cut a long story short, it is going to be one month, one drawing, one calendar wallpaper). It's a way to pay tribute to all the authors and stories I enjoyed in the past few years.

What about the fic ?

That he will is an amazing 2nd person fic written by grace_fully . Here's everything you need to know about this great story:

Title: That he will
Characters/Pairings: Jared/Jensen (non-au)
Rating: pg-13
Summary: Jared is patient. he nearly cracks, but he is patient.
Word Count: 2,406

The fic is also available on MP3 and PodBook versions ^^


What about your drawing ? (Spoiler! Highlight if you want to know more)

It's the last paragraph of the fic where Jared finally convince Jensen to give him a chance, stay with him and love him. The scene takes place in the entrace of the Js' house.

Tools of the trade ?

Photoshop CS + Painter Essential 3 - Paintover on the set - ballpoint pen (the writings)

A sketch?

Yes, I wasn't very sure about the colors so for once the sketch is in colors. The palette of the final drawing is very far from the sketch (a little bit too pink and schmoopy) but it was a lot of fun to draw. 





Voilà! I can't believe I made it on time for the end of the month. 
See you next month!

Very nice! I love it. It's very cute. And you've picked another fic that I've read and loved! I can't wait to see the rest!
petite_madamepetite_madame on May 31st, 2011 05:54 pm (UTC)
If I'm not wrong, next month's fic will be longer (BB length) and just a bit darker. I hope you will enjoy it too ^^
Thanks a lot for the great comment about my art ♥

I love love love that fic and your art is perfect for it! ♥
petite_madamepetite_madame on May 31st, 2011 05:52 pm (UTC)
It's one of my favorite fics so it HAD to be in this calendar project ^o^
Thanks a lot for the great comment about my art ♥

Oh my gosh! That's beautiful!

It's the perfect art for the fic. :) So lovely!
petite_madamepetite_madame on May 31st, 2011 05:50 pm (UTC)
Thanks a lot for the great comment about my art ^o^
Glad you enjoyed it so much ♥
katbcollkatbcoll on May 30th, 2011 05:59 pm (UTC)
Ohhh I love that. It's... really, beautiful... that's the word that keeps going through my brain.

And now I'm off to read the story. Anything that inspires something like this needs to be read.
petite_madamepetite_madame on May 31st, 2011 05:49 pm (UTC)
I'm sure you are going to enjoy the story! "That he will" is really a great story ♥
However, I think that my art is a bit schmoopier than the fic ^^;;
Thanks a lot for the great comment about my art ♥

J'admire ton art depuis un certain temps. Caché dans mon petit coin, je découvre à chaque fois tes dessins avec bonheur. I don't read fics, but I lOVE your Art. C'a me rapelle un peu les BD "Martine" de mon enfance. Bien, bien moins innocent. Mais avec autant de chaleur exprimée. Merci.
petite_madamepetite_madame on May 31st, 2011 05:48 pm (UTC)
J'avoue, je lisais pas mal de "Martine" quand j'étais gamine; Ca a du m'influencer quelque part mais c'est vrai que niveau innocence, vu certains fan arts que je dessine, c'est mal barré ^^;;
Merci beaucoup en tous cas, d'être sortie de ton petit coin pour me laisser ce commentaire très sympa :D
Amberamberdreams on May 30th, 2011 06:06 pm (UTC)
That's cool! I was liking it anyway - lovely warm colours, gorgeous smile on Jared's face and Jensen looks so - vulnerable....Then I clicked on the magnifying glass and found all the words - it felt like an easter egg on a DVD! LOL
petite_madamepetite_madame on May 31st, 2011 05:40 pm (UTC)
Ha! Ha! ha! I see you noticed the words in the background ^^ It's quotes from the fics. I really wanted to include them in the picture. I think you are the only one to have noticed them \o/
Thanks a lot for the great comment about my art ♥

Gorgeous :D I love you doing this you know? Cuz not only are we getting recs- we're getting amazing art too :)
petite_madamepetite_madame on May 31st, 2011 05:33 pm (UTC)
I'm glad you are using this post as a rec' for fics you've never heard about ^^ I thought I chose fics that everybody knew but I'm amazed to see that this post works as a "rec' post" for a lot of people \o/
Thank you so much for the great comment about my art ♥

I rather like Jensen wearing a red hoodie, actually. I love the fic; I'm so glad you picked it. It fills me with warm fuzzies.
petite_madamepetite_madame on May 31st, 2011 05:25 pm (UTC)
I changed my mind because of the sepia background. A red hoodie on a sepia background wasn't very good. Jensen was almost "invisible", except for the head ^^;;
Thanks a lot for the great comment about my art ♥
Waywardwayward_jr on May 30th, 2011 07:01 pm (UTC)
You've posted! *yay*

Beautiful drawing for a great fic! *hugs*
petite_madamepetite_madame on May 31st, 2011 05:22 pm (UTC)
Yes, I posted! I didn't know how I managed to post right on time, but I did it \o/
Thanks a lot for always dropping by and leaving a comment ♥

I just head to read the fic once I saw the art...and both fic and art are amazing!

Them tangled up in each other like that, it makes me smile happily. Very very happily. Maybe it's time to change the background I have used since your January calender.
petite_madamepetite_madame on May 31st, 2011 05:20 pm (UTC)
I fell in love with the fic immediately. It was one of the first times I read a 2nd person fic, it's really usual and I loved it! ^^

Maybe it's time to change the background I have used since your January calender.
Ha! ha! Ha! You've had the same background since January? ^^ I remember that the one of the Doors of Time had a lot of succes ^^ It's the power of Jensen, I guess xD

Thanks a lot for always dropping by and commenting ♥

This is gorgeous. I really love their expressions, and the colours are really soft and beautiful. Lovely!
petite_madamepetite_madame on May 31st, 2011 04:57 pm (UTC)
For once I forgot about my usual blue palette ^^;;
Thanks a lot for the great comment about my art! Glad you loved the colors ♥

The smile on my face is so huge right now! This. Is gorgeous. You did that gold glowy thing again I just adore. One of these days I really need to find better words to describe it. It's just magical. Like you light up their emotions from within. Jared's dimple again. Jensen's downward glance. Touchable hair. Both their hands. Jensen's hoodie! I have an, um, thing for that. It's just soft and I don't know. There's something about a hoodie. Of course, in my head, it's Jared's hoodie he's wearing. You added just enough extra folds to make that feel true.

It's gonna be June in my home for a long time :)
petite_madamepetite_madame on May 31st, 2011 06:11 pm (UTC)
I try not to use the "golden glowy thing" too much but I must admit I can't help it ^^ I love the sepia-orange highlights so you can be sure that there is one in practically every drawing. However, recently, I tend to use pink xD

Besides...he was showing skin in that picture. I like skin.
I have a thing for Jensen's hoodie since I saw him wearing one in the "Faith" episode ^^ I completely agree about the theory that he's wearing Jared' hoodie. I didn't think about it but now that you mentioned it, I think it's a great idea you've got there ^o^

Thanks a lot for the great comment about my calendar and for paying attention to small details like the hands and the highlights ^^
I thought you were a predator!: [SPN] J2 - smilesatanih88 on May 30th, 2011 07:50 pm (UTC)
Oh Christ I literally squeed and clutched my hands together at this! ♥ ♥ ♥

So, so, so lovely omg *_*
petite_madamepetite_madame on May 31st, 2011 04:56 pm (UTC)
And I'm glad you did ^^ I'm happy that my art...made you happy ^^
Thanks a lot for the great comment about my art ♥

This is simply beautiful, I can't wait to see what you come up from month to month. <3<3<3
petite_madamepetite_madame on May 31st, 2011 04:55 pm (UTC)
I hope you will enjoy next month's wallpaper as much as you enjoyed this one \o/
Thank you very much for the great comment about my art ♥

You!!! Are!!! An Amazing!!! Artist!!!!!! Lovely Jensen and Jared. So much feeling is expressed in this piece - Jensen's surrender and
happy and hopeful Jared. Beautiful... Thank you for the link of the fic that inspired this.

On a different note - thank you, as well, for giving Jensen his own natural dark hair. I get kinda tired of seeing artists making his hair some strange butterscotch color. Being an old beautician myself, I notice these things... : )
petite_madamepetite_madame on May 31st, 2011 06:24 pm (UTC)
You're welcome about the link to the fic ^^ It's a great story so I really wanted to share the link with the people who follow my LJ. I fell in love with it the first time I read it ^o^

Jensen's hair is very hard to draw compared to Jared. Obtaining the right color isn't easy at all. Even if you have the right color at the beginning, once you had some highlights, it immediately turns too yellowish or orange or butterscotch :/

Thanks a lot for enjoying the art so much and for noticing little details like the boys' expression and Jensen's hair ♥
