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 ?

The Bright Lights of Disturbia is an amazing and very long fic written by Leonidaslion. Here's everything you need to know about this great Hurt!Dean story (I'm sure that a lot of you have already read it ) :

Title: The Bright Lights of Disturbia
Characters/Pairings: Dean Winchester/Sam Winchester, Dean Winchester/Other(s), Jessica Moore/Sam Winchester, Sarah Blake/Sam Winchester
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Not all of our scars are worn on the outside ...
Author's notes / Warnings: This is a VERY DARK FIC, and if you are sensitive to issues of consent or to the psychological repercussions of rape and other sexual trauma, please hit the back button now. There IS a happy ending, but it is at the other end of a very long, very dark tunnel. Please be sure you want to make the journey before clicking ahead.
Word Count: 373 399

What about your drawing?

Dean is haunted by a memory he tries to bury deep into mind but that keeps coming back to him every time he's facing a mirror. That's all I can tell you without being too spoilery 

Was it easy to contact the author?

Not really.  Leonidaslion deleted her journal this year so contacting her was a bit difficult but I knew I could rely on my f-list who told me to get in touch with dreamlittleyo for a bit of help. The poor girl played the messenger and gave me a great help to contact the author who was M.I.A on LJ. Thank you very much!! 



Next projects:

- October 3rd: Art Post for the deancasbigbang for Our Bodies, Possessed by Light by obstinatrix
- End of Oct. - Maybe November: My prompt for spn_cinema, Captain America, The First Avenger. A preview is available here
- November: Two prompts for the spn_reversebang
- December: A big post for the hc_bingo.

Voilà!
That's it for this month!
I hope you enjoyed this month's calendar.

Oh man. I feel like it is bizarrely fitting that I should get first comment (god I hope this is still first comment, or that is a very silly thing to say. ;p) This is GORGEOUS, hon. COMPLETELY gorgeous. You already know I love it (and that, if even physically possible, Lion loves it EVEN MORE), but I just. I need to say it again and again and again. This is stunning and gorgeous and dark and vivid and WONDERFUL. Amazing work!
petite_madamepetite_madame on October 2nd, 2011 08:17 am (UTC)
You did it, you were actually the first comment ^o^ Don't worry!!

Thank you so much for your great help and for enthusiasm! I'm so glad Lion and you loved the final result. It's always particular when you work for an illustration art for a fic, you never know if it's going to be close to the author's vision or not (and the great question was: what scene was I going to choose in a 800 page story? ^^;; )

@Lion: Thank you so much dear!! I'm really happy you loved the art and that you didn't have anything against some gore stuffs even if here, it's quite soft and rather "schmoopy" compared to the bingo I told you about.

Thanks again to both of you ladies ♥

OH MY GOD, YOU MAKE ME WANT TO READ IT ALL OVER AGAIN AND THAT THING WAS A MONSTER TO DIGEST.

This is perfection, also we love the same fics every month, ilu.

OH MY GOD, YOU MAKE ME WANT TO READ IT ALL OVER AGAIN
IT DEPENDS, DO YOU HAVE THE TIME TO READ 800 PAGES AGAIN?!! ^o^

Thanks a lot for the great comment about my wallpaper, I hope you will enjoy next month's as much as this one ♥

I really love this! His expression is fantastic. I love when you do horror-esque pieces! <33

OK, after hearing about this fic from almost everyone I know in fandom I am FINALLY going to sit down and read it because that image....*shudder*....
petite_madamepetite_madame on October 1st, 2011 10:40 pm (UTC)
It's a very dark fic but it's not a fandom classic for nothing, I'm sure you will enjoy it a lot ^^
Thanks a lot for the great comment about my calendar wallpaper ♥

The hand and the shattered glass with the blood are eyecatching. I can't remember if I read the story but the image is gripping even without the story background.
petite_madamepetite_madame on October 2nd, 2011 08:20 am (UTC)
Thank you so much for your great comment about my art and more precisely about the hand coming out of the mirror ^^
The fic is quite long so if you didn't read it, be ready for a 800 pages PDF xD

*gasps* Wow. WOW. That thump you just heard was me falling over. You always do such lush, gorgeous work! What an awesome, stunning and frightening piece -- Dean's horrified expression is already haunting me, and I haven't even read the fic!

. . . but I'll certainly have to read it NOW, won't I? ;)

ETA: You do blood/blood spatters very, VERY well. Brava!!

*gasps* Wow. WOW. That thump you just heard was me falling over.
Oh. That was you? ^^

Dean is actually horrified because a lot of very bad things happen to him in the fic so I really wanted to show all this in my art ^^

You know me now, there is always a blood splatter somewhere in my art except when I draw schmoop, that is to say...once a year!

Thanks a lot for the great comment about my art!
Your icon is hilarious ♥

I've just been thinking about re-reading The Bright Lights of Disturbia. You must have read my mind! Thanks for the beautiful calendar... and the nudging.

I also adore your milk carton. :D
petite_madamepetite_madame on October 2nd, 2011 08:26 am (UTC)
Thank you so much for the great comment about my wallpaper and also about the milk cartoon. I was looking for a way to contact LL and all I found was this cute cartoon to attract my Flist's attention. It worked so I can't complain :3
VodouBluevodou_blue on September 29th, 2011 04:30 pm (UTC)
I keep trying to work up the nerve to read that fic. *hangs head*

Your artwork is beautiful, sweetie. Makes me want to be brave and try to read Disturbia.
Amberamberdreams on September 29th, 2011 05:06 pm (UTC)
It is well written and an awesome fic - but it is called Disturbia for a reason...

Yay! I really like the perspective you've chosen for this wallpaper and I think I remember what you've based it on.
(Haven't read the fic in a looong time, eheh).

Same goes for the color choice, the red goes very well here ;)
petite_madamepetite_madame on October 2nd, 2011 08:35 am (UTC)
I'm nuts, I re-read the fic just to draw the art. 800 page? That's nothing xD (Well...it's long but as the fic is great, I read them quite fast)
Thanks a lot for noticing the palette and the perspective I chose ^^ As the fic is very dark and a bit gore sometimes, I went for a dark-red/purple palette :3
Thank you so much for the great comment about my wallpaper ♥
darklondonsky: dean vampire blooddarklondonsky on September 29th, 2011 04:37 pm (UTC)
Beautiful, dark, angsty, just what I like and need :-) I just made this my new desktop wallpaper for the Macbook.
Per.fec.tion.
petite_madamepetite_madame on October 2nd, 2011 08:36 am (UTC)
I love Dean in your icon ^^
If you love gore stuffs, you should enjoy the bingo I'm gonna post in about one month and an half ^^ It's very gory :3
Thanks a lot for the great comment about my art and for using it as your desktop wallpaper ♥

Oh my god, I was hoping Disturbia would be on your calender list :) It's one of my favorite fanfics and your one of my favorite Supernatural artists and did I say it's friggin' AMAZING? *g* Because it is :) Love the image and the creepy mirror reflection!

Can't wait to make it my desktop background on Saturday :D
petite_madamepetite_madame on October 2nd, 2011 08:40 am (UTC)
Oh my god, I was hoping Disturbia would be on your calender list :)
I knew it would be on the list, I just had to contact LL but she deleted her LJ so I had to find a solution to get in touch with her! dreamlittleyo was a great help. ^^

Can't wait to make it my desktop background on Saturday :D
It's Sunday so..congrats on your new wallpaper ;)

Thank you so much for the great comment about my art and for using it as your desktop wallpaper ♥
Amberamberdreams on September 29th, 2011 05:04 pm (UTC)
My memory is attrocious so I was thinking - which one was Disturbia (I knew I'd read it) - then I looked at your picture, and the anguished look on Dean's face, and it all came flooding back! So - I guess that is certainly job done!
petite_madamepetite_madame on October 2nd, 2011 08:41 am (UTC)
I'm glad you remember what fic it is because making a summary of a 800 page story without being too spoilery would have been a nightmare xD
Thank you so much for the great comment about my art and for enjoying how gore and dark it is ♥
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on September 29th, 2011 05:28 pm (UTC)
Oooh, awesome! I wish I had time to read that behemoth.

Lemme tell you, I LOVE how you design your art, all the clever details (the broken glass, cd, etc.) I never know what to do with that. Your graphic design skills and branding are faboo! You depict scenes so brilliantly. *applause!*
petite_madamepetite_madame on October 2nd, 2011 09:37 am (UTC)
Oooh, awesome! I wish I had time to read that behemoth.
It's about 800 pages, so yes, reading it takes some time ^^ I'm glad to have a kindle and to be able to read fics everywhere :D

Your graphic design skills and branding are faboo!
Faboo ^^ I didn't know this word, it's so cute and funny, I can't describe. :)
Thank you so much for this great compliment. I'm mad about graphic design, I have lots of books at home like Taschen's "Graphic design now". It's really a great book but my favorite ones are "200 best illustrators worldwide". Read it if you can ^^

Thanks a lot for the great comment about my work ♥


saphirablue on September 29th, 2011 05:53 pm (UTC)
WOW!

As always - you render me speechless with your amazing art!

Thank you!

Another one of my favorite fics! So beautiful! ♥_______♥
petite_madamepetite_madame on October 2nd, 2011 08:42 am (UTC)
I'm glad we have common tastes in fics and that you enjoyed the wallpaper ^^
Two more left before the end of the year ♥
Thank you so much :D
