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 ?

Last Day On Earth is an amazing fic written by candle_beck . Here's everything you need to know about this great S&D story (I'm sure that most of you have already read it but still  ) :

Title: Last Day On Earth
Characters/Pairings: Sam/Dean
Rating: NC-17
Summary: A list of things to do if you only have one day to live, presented in inconvenient non-list form.
Word Count: 13054

What about your drawing? 

SPOILER, ENLIGHT THE TEXT TO READ

In the story, Sam is about to die. Dean can't take it anymore and the atmosphere in the car became claustrophobic and unbearable. The brothers stop a few moments on the edge of the road to think.


No sketch this time?

Huh...The sketch of Last Day on Earth knew, precisely, its last day on this earth after meeting a small bottle of shoyu (soy sauce) that was having a little walk on the table...The sketch unforunately didn't survive this "shoyu incident" that happened about two weeks ago. He joined in the family grave, the sketch for the poster art of Ace who had a little accident with a cup of tea. My house is definitely not a secure place for sketches... 

Voilà!
That's it for this month! 
My next entry will certainly be my post for the draw_jared community.

Oh wow! The use of light and darkness with the two of them is amazing. Their expressions are just heartbreaking. This one moved me.
petite_madamepetite_madame on August 30th, 2011 10:40 am (UTC)
This one is quite sad even if the fic isn't that sad after all ^^
Thank you so much for the amazing feedback about my wallpaper ♥
eviljellybean88eviljellybean88 on August 29th, 2011 04:20 pm (UTC)
ooo, i love the way you did their hair and the use of black and white really adds to the feeling of despair so it's almost cruel how that little bit of light in the corner gives a sort of false hope. truly beautiful <3

I upgraded to Photoshop CS4 so I am now able to add more details, that's why my drawings are more precise than before. In about one year, I had a new graphic tablet, a new screen and new softwares! It changes everything ^^
Thanks a lot for the great feedback about my work ♥

What can I say?
Absolutely awesome. I love pictures and desings in black and white, but in this case what I love is the Sam and Dean gaze. Definitely I'm fell in love with this guys :)
As always, great work.
I think can't wait to the next month :)
Thanks, thanks and thanks for make things like this *___*
petite_madamepetite_madame on August 30th, 2011 10:46 am (UTC)
Next months's fic will be a little bit sadder and far FAR more longer. It's a very long fic :D
I LOVE working in black and white but I thought it was a little bit too sad for the story (where the sunset is important) so I added white and orange highlights :)
Thanks a lot for the great feedback about my wallpaper.
I hope you will like the next one ♥

Oooh, I like the nearly monochromeness of the picture! It fits the kinda bleak this has.
But aww, that'll be another one I can't use as a wallpaper without getting a bit teary-eyed because of the scene ;___; At least here I know how the story ends ;)

Very well done!
petite_madamepetite_madame on August 30th, 2011 10:49 am (UTC)
Ah, sorry about that ;) That's true, this one is a little bit sad...and the next one will be even more sad ^^ I think I love sad stories even if this one has a happy end unlike the story I chose for the month of March "A bleak understanding in reverse" where Sam died of a brain tumor.

Thanks a lot for the great feedback about my wallpaper. ♥

aw, boys. :( i love how they're sitting so close they touch but aren't facing each other, and the sun setting (rising?) off to the side gives the scene a really lovely but also really melancholy light.
petite_madamepetite_madame on August 30th, 2011 10:51 am (UTC)
The sun is setting. It's important in the story (I'm not going to tell you why, no spoiler) but I didn't draw this setting sun at random ^^ You are right about the melancholic mood of the picture, that's because of the B&w, I think ^^

Thanks a lot for the great feedback about my wallpaper. ♥

Wow, I'm floored by this one! So beautiful and so much....emotions that comes out of it. Guh...
petite_madamepetite_madame on August 30th, 2011 10:52 am (UTC)
This one is bit sad but next month's will be...even sadder xD I love sad stories ^^;;

Thanks a lot for the great feedback about my wallpaper.
I'm glad you liked it ♥

Looks wonderful darling! The look on Sam's face is like how i pictured it when i read the story all those months ago! Lovely :3
petite_madamepetite_madame on August 30th, 2011 10:54 am (UTC)
Drawing Sam's face drove me nuts. I couldn't reach the right expression on his face :S
Thanks a lot for the great comment about my wallpaper ^^
Glad you liked it ♥

Such expressive and beautiful art to go with candle beck's amazing story. You always knock it outta the park, hon.
petite_madamepetite_madame on August 30th, 2011 10:55 am (UTC)

I didn't know that expression! I find it quite funny, I can't explain ^^;;
Thanks a lot for your kind words ♥

wow...
Can't even breath! forget about commenting...

Love the b&w colors and the hint of golden sun, love the way you placed the brothers - together but alone at the same time, love how mach feeling we can see on their faces...

Love you <3

*HUGS*
petite_madamepetite_madame on August 30th, 2011 11:01 am (UTC)
The golden sun (setting sun) is important in the story (I'm not going to tell you why, no spoiler) but I didn't draw this setting sun at random ^^ You are right about the sad mood of the picture, that's because of the B&w, I think ^^
Thank you so much for the great feedback about my calendar wallpaper ♥

*HUGS too* ♥

This is great! I love that fic and your art it perfect! Once again, the looks on the boys faces say it all!
petite_madamepetite_madame on August 30th, 2011 11:04 am (UTC)
The fic is absolutely awesome indeed, I was so glad Candlebeck gave me the permission to draw an art inspired by her story :D
Thanks a lot for the great comment about my wallpaper ^^

Ha ha for once I recognised one of your source pics straightaway (Sammy!). Yes, this really looks like an ending, dark, melancholy and broody.

Not exactly ;) Look at Sam's face, it's not the same one as the reference picture you are telling me about ^^;; I always change something in reference pictures. I never use them directly :)

Thanks a lot for the great comment about my wallpaper and for always dropping by ^^

This is incredibly beautiful!! I love Dean in this so much!! The colouring makes my heart clench...these boys are breaking me! Great art for a great fic and I must say I double love this because in late September I have my birthday and I have half a mind to print this and put it over my bed so I can stare at it everyday as I cross out the days till my b-day hahahaha!!
petite_madamepetite_madame on August 31st, 2011 11:19 am (UTC)
It's the first time I'm mixing B&W and colors in the same art. I didn't know if the result would be good or not so I gave it a try and..voilà! :3
September is the month of your birthday? Happy Birthday in advance then even if my calendar is a bit sad for a birthday-calendar ^^;;
Thanks a lot for the great feedback about my art ♥

One of my very favorite fics, and this accompaniment piece is just extraordinary. The looks on their faces, the mood, the coloring, the lighting; everything about this is perfection.

Whenever you post a drawing it truly makes my day, but this is one of my personal favorites.
petite_madamepetite_madame on August 31st, 2011 11:16 am (UTC)
Thank you so much for the great feedback about this month's wallpaper ^^ I hope you will love the next one too. I've already chosen the fic but I didn't start to work on the wallpaper yet. All I know is that it's gonna be a bit sad :3
I love your icon, it's beautiful! ♥
I am not there. I do not sleep.: 522_Impalasecretlytodream on August 29th, 2011 07:40 pm (UTC)
Ohhhhhh ♥ LOVE the colors! Though I'm a bit sad that a good part of the fics you make calendars for are pretty sad, though epic ;___; Amazing <33
petite_madamepetite_madame on August 30th, 2011 11:13 am (UTC)
I don't know why, I love sad stories. I'm not a huge fan of schmoop so my wallpaper calendars are often sad...and it will be even sadder next month xD
Thanks a lot for the great comment about my wallpaper and for always dropping by ^^
