Fire of Unknown Origin by Imaliea Fire of Unknown Origin by Imaliea
EDIT 6/11/11: Because everytime I looked at this I couldn't help but notice errors that are only obvious with hindsight. Eventually it got to me, so I went back and fixed up some things ^^; theeeen I still couldn't help myself, and changed things up a bit more. Hopefully 'tis an improvement (certainly I think the likeness to dear Jensen is better). I may yet still go back and edit this again, because I like to torture myself.

For those curious, previous version is here (for the record): [link]



What's this? Art, from me? After it's been... gosh, over a YEAR?! I know, I'm stunned too.

I won't ramble on about it here (I'll save that for a blog), suffice to say well... this was far too long coming.

There are a great many things I wanted for this painting, and after much trial and error I decided just to let it be and save my ideas for another artwork. Probably more of Dean Winchester lol. I want to draw other things but I feel like something is gnawing at me to keep drawing Dean/Jensen until I get it just right. Dunno exactly what that's about but there you go.

In any case, time to give cred where cred is due. For my reference I used a tiny 100x100px LiveJournal icon. I have no idea whose it is, or where exactly I got it from (apart from LJ, duh), so if you recognise it, please point me in the right direction.

To view it, have a look here: [link]

I do not claim ownership of the icon, the original photo, Jensen himself, or Delicious Dean Winchester. Heck I can't even own up to the title of the piece: thanks to Blue Öyster Cult for that one (I listened to nothing but mullet rock while painting this ;) )



Due to my fragile grip on inspiration, I respectfully ask that you be kind with your comments. This is the first art completed artwork I've done in a long, long time. So please, be gentle. Y'know. Shameless flattery welcome.



As always, no stealing my art. Much as I like to think nobody would, it's happened before. So no touchie without permission!

I'll be submitting to clubs and stuff later, sorry in advance for any future-spam.

This is awesome! :love:
I love how the fire is 'eating' on him and then blends, with his hair etc..
The color red fits him so well and I love the look on his face! :heart:
And the lips came out great too!

Amazing job! :clap:
