Artpost for 'Picture of You'

Artpost created for this year's round of spn_reversebang. A big shout out to the mod spnreversemod for running this challenge for another round.

A huge thank you to tammyrenh  for claiming my prompt and writing such an awesome story for it. Link to the story is here. Link to Artpost on AO3 is here.

1. The Banner.

It had to look Royal because come on, Prince Jared? He just radiates Royalty. The prompt was painter Jensen painting a picture of Prince Jared. So, for the background I had to take a shiny look that would convey the thought of Royalty so I used the theme of Royal Castle walls. I had to create the photo manip of Prince Jared in a way that could look like a portrait painting. I used a few filters and effects using the PhotoKit application and added the frame that would suit the theme. Additional changes were done using Photoscape X pro.

Covid Help!

Hello!!

India is tackling a massive Covid crisis and while the Government is doing the best it can, it isn't enough to manage the population of 1.3 billion people. The system is over burdened. If that wasn't enough there's people and organization that are working hard to spread panic and misinformation during pandemic. (via australiatoday) and Fake news is only complicating the matters (via ORFonline).  In such situation, it's really important that you help out in any which way possible.

Fandom: Supernatural

Pairing: Sam/Dean

Rating: Explicit 

Word Count: 2868

Summary: Dean gets hit on the head during a hunt and nearly dies. When he comes to, Sam kisses him. Now Dean can’t stop thinking about it. Set vaguely mid-series at Christmastime.

Notes: It wouldn't have been possible without constant support and an honest feedback from my dear friend jdl71  Thank you Jen, for being an amazing beta and an even more amazing friend. 

This is my third entry into the challenge and I've been thoroughly enjoying it. I was fortunate to work with amypond45 for the beautiful story she wrote. The story revolves around idiots in love and the visuals that the author mentioned were so tempting that I immediately claimed the fic. Here's at a lance at how the final piece came to life.

1. Step 1 was to find a correct background and create a cut out of the boys to fit the scene of Sam and Dean laying in bed, all sweet.  It took some time because I had to work on getting the details right. I changed the tone and temperature and added a light hue to get the basic rough draft of the base manip.

Notes: Special thanks to jdl71 for being a great beta. 

This is my second submission for this challenge. A huge thanks to Tammy for trusting me with her fic. She had a specific visual listed that she wanted the artist to illustrate. The image of Jensen singing at Jared's favorite coffee shop simply melted me. I just had to grab it. Here's how I came up with the final banner.

1. Step 1 was to find a perfect background of a coffee shop that has a warm look. Google has been my rescuer in finding the perfect BG to suit the story.

Summary: Sam reflects on Dean's scars.

Link to Fic: Ao3

I claimed Jen's fic for quicky_bang . the author wanted a specific scene illustrated and that was the brothers in bed. The thing that intrigued me the most was about Sam giving Dean a massage. The fic elaborates the scene so beautifully. I've tried my level best to do justice to the story. Here's how the final piece took a shape.

1. The first step towards creating the photo manip was finding the correct background. The dim lights, feel of an enclosed room as the boys are in bunker, a bed with white sheets and all. So I googled and settled on the following image of the room.
