What's the concept ?

During the year 2011, I posted one drawing a month (alongside other art, it wasn't my only project) all inspired by a fan fiction. (To cut a long story short, it was one month, one drawing, one calendar wallpaper). It was a way to pay tribute to all the authors and stories I enjoyed in the past few years.)...but now it's over! This wallpaper is the last installment of the series 

What about the fic ?

Future Tense is a great Sam & Dean fic written by selecasharp. Here's everything you need to know about this great SD story where the boys have to deal with the Apocalypse and Tree Spirits  :

Title: Future Tense
Genre: Angst/Drama
Rating: NC-17
Spoilers: Set during season 5 (post episode 5:14 "My Bloody Valentine") and ends the apocalypse, but no spoilers for episodes past 5:14.
Warnings: Wincest, Lucifer messing with Sam via dreams (mild dubcon-type messing, mostly kissing), ANGST
Word count: 31,256 total
Summary: While on a case, Sam and Dean are given a vision of the future - a future in which they've stopped the apocalypse and are now, apparently, involved. Dean's convinced that it's another trick and insists that they forget it, but Sam can't let it - any of it - go.

What about your drawing?

This scene is at the beginning on the story, in the first pages. It represents Sam's meeting with a Tree Spirit while on a hunt. This meeting will change the brothers' lives forever.

A reference picture for the Fairy?

Absolutely. If you love browsing the Deviant Art stock, you certainly recognize Mizzd, owner of the Mizzd Stock. Her stock is really awesome to find reference pictures for creating fantasy art. Highly recommended 

December already? Will you carry on this calendar project next year?

I am sorry but no. ^^;; It's definitely too much work. I don't know how I managed to be on time (practically) every month  It was A LOT of fun to do but I am going to stop here and to concentrate on challenges and exchanges.

I will do a last post to post again the 12 wallpapers without the calendars at the bottom. Well, the 12...rather 11. I lost the original file for the month of March (A Bleak Understanding in Reverse) so I can't guaranty I will be able to post this one. 

Tools of the trade:

- Photoshop CS4
- Painter 12

Next projects?

- I will post in December a drawing for 50states_spn, a challenge for people to create fanwork (fic or art) with an emphasis on the local. (food, culture, local myths and legends). I chose the state of Georgia.
- I am going to illustrate a chapter for the spn_redemption project. (January/February)
- I signed up for dc_dystopia, a Dean/Castiel challenge focused on dark themes. (I hope to grab a fic with a lot of blood and gore, hé, hé, hé!)
- I also signed up for worldwide_spn. It will be the occasion to draw the boys in my hometown, Paris. 

Voilà!!!
That's it for this project! I hope you enjoyed the wallpapers that were posted during the year 2011.

that's really beautiful.

I really loved your "bulletproof" one, because Jensen is gorgeous. But i think this is my favorite so far.
petite_madamepetite_madame on December 1st, 2011 12:12 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much for your great comment about my December calendar ♥
The "bulletproof" (and "the Doors of Time") are among my favorite too :3

Aw, it's over already? ;__; It didn't seem to be such a long time.
But kudos to you to going through with it ♥
You've brightened my months with it ♥ Good luck for all your next projects you've listed ;)

Also, this one is really beautiful for a last wallpaper!
Your tree spirit looks a bit art nouveau-ish, which is totally fitting and I'm again in love with the palette you've used here.
And you Sam! ♥ He looks surprised, I just wanna give him a hug here :)
petite_madamepetite_madame on December 1st, 2011 12:16 pm (UTC)
IKR? December already! :3 It went so fast ^^;;;
I don't know how I managed to be on time 11 months out of twelve. ^^ I was rushing every month to finish the calendar and the banner xD

Thank you so much for your great comment about my December calendar ♥
You are right, now that I look at it, it's very Mucha even if my main inspiration was the book by Alan Lee & Brian Froud, "Faeries". Sam looks very surprised because that's how he's described in the fic when he met the Tree Spirit for the 1st time ^o^
jesseofthenorthjesseofthenorth on November 29th, 2011 05:19 pm (UTC)
I couldn't always come up with a timely rational comment and but I certainly have enjoyed every single one of the installments of the calendar. Excellent work
I particularly loved your installment for Doors Of Time.

Thank you so much for your great comment about my December calendar and for enjoying all the calendars of this project month after month ♥
The one for "The Doors of Time" was one of my favorite too with the one for "Do I look bulletproof to you" :3

Hee, Sam's little face! *_*

Thanks so much for all the gorgeous wallpapers and I can't wait for your next projects! <333

About my next projects: My RBB will maybe be postponed to next Monday to leave some time to my author to finish the fic. Wait & see :3

Thank you for this and for all 12 gorgeous months. Such a treat. Truly incredible. I love the fairy/sprite. She's just luminous. And Sam's expression is priceless.

I have adored these and once more thank you for sharing them with us.

So lovely! I've been meaning to read the fic-- this encourages me to move it up the list. *s*

While I'm sorry to hear there won't be a calendar project from you next year (I not only enjoyed the art but got some good story recs as well) I understand that it takes too much time away from other projects you're interested in. I look forward to seeing what beautiful, evocative things you create next year. *hug*
petite_madamepetite_madame on December 1st, 2011 07:40 pm (UTC)
I'm sure you are going to love the story (and there is a happy end ).
Thank YOU for such a great comment about my December calendar and for enjoying all the calendars of this project month after month ♥
The pb with this calendar project was being on time ^^ I usually started to work on it on the 20th of the month and it took me about 5 days with the conception of the calendar/banner/post. I was always afraid to post too late xD
Talking about too late, my 2nd RBB prompt will certainly be postponed to the 12th :3
the dark foretolddarkforetold on November 29th, 2011 06:09 pm (UTC)
Very beautiful.
petite_madamepetite_madame on December 1st, 2011 12:01 pm (UTC)

BTW, thanks for contacting the RR mods for me! I have my assignments! It's for January/February ^^

Bravo, c'est magnifique. Ton attention portée au détail n'est jamais au détriment de l'émotion. A chaque fois, l'envie me prend de toucher l'image. Ton travail est très impressionnant. :D
petite_madamepetite_madame on December 1st, 2011 11:58 am (UTC)
Je suis une droguée du détail ^^ Je ne peux pas m'en empêcher, c'est une vrai maladie, il faut toujours que je rajoute quelque chose même quand je me dis "Bon, cette fois, c'est promis, je vais faire simple!"...Raté! :3
Merci beaucoup pour ton commentaire très sympa sur mon wallpaper ♥
Annieaythia on November 29th, 2011 06:21 pm (UTC)
Thank you SO much for this year, it's been amazing... Even though I'm still using the Doors of Time one as background, thank you for providing that without the calender part!

And I don't often read Wincest, but I think I need to read this one!
petite_madamepetite_madame on December 1st, 2011 11:56 am (UTC)
I'm sure you are going to enjoy the story. You have wincest in it, of course, but the plot building and the characterization are really good so even if wincest isn't really your cup of tea, I'm sure you are going to love it :3
Thank YOU for your great comment about my December calendar and for enjoying this calendar project month after month ♥

Aw, so sweet and pretty! *hugs all over* I love Sam's widdle face too!
petite_madamepetite_madame on December 1st, 2011 11:54 am (UTC)
Sam has really his puppy eyes in this drawing ^^ I really wanted him to look very surprised after his first meeting with the Tree Spirit ^^
Thank you so much for your great comment about my December calendar ♥
Marcia Elenamarciaelena on November 29th, 2011 06:32 pm (UTC)
Beautiful.



Oh, the 1280x1024 version doesn't seem to be there. Thought I'd let you know.

Edited at 2011-11-29 06:36 pm (UTC)
petite_madamepetite_madame on December 1st, 2011 11:53 am (UTC)
Argh! I will fix that! I don't have the wallpaper in this computer so I will try to upload the 1280x1024 tonight!
Thank you so much for your great comment about my December calendar and for letting me know about the broken link ♥
cindy: spn - sam (by crecd060)tsuki_no_bara on November 29th, 2011 06:45 pm (UTC)
oh wow, that's gorgeous. O.O sam looks like he's not 100% sure how to react to this beautiful tree fairy....
petite_madamepetite_madame on December 1st, 2011 11:52 am (UTC)
It corresponds to the description in the fic. Sam is actually very surprised when he met the tree spirit for the first time ^^
Thank you so much for your great comment about my December calendar ♥
Laura: SPN: Gunviolateraindrop on November 29th, 2011 07:10 pm (UTC)
That's such a great story! The glowing "hair" looks so pretty. That's a great way to picture the spirit :)
petite_madamepetite_madame on December 1st, 2011 11:49 am (UTC)
In the fic, the spirit was described as being a little more greenish but I preferred drawing a beautiful lady with a pure white skin like the faeries in Alan Lee & Brian Froud's book, "Faeries". I love this book! I wish I could draw like Alan Lee one day :3
Thank you so much for your great comment about my December calendar ♥

So beautiful. Sam's face is just... *sighs* Needs to read the fic now.
