Title: A Shadow of What Would Be

First time joining wincestbigbang as a pinch hitter was fun! It's been a long time since the last time I created Sam and Dean (and wincest!) art so I was both excited and nervous. I also had a lot of fun exchanging idea and chatting with my author, Paula @ wetsammywinchester. She is so talented and her Sam and Dean are spotted on. Besides, what is the chance for a Sam!Girl to get assigned as a pinch hitter for another Sam!Girl??? I'm beyond happy, and giddy!. Reading her story made me miss the early seasons of SPN :( I will have to rewatch them all!

Please go read this awesome story and shower her with love and hugs :)

More under the cut. Hope you enjoy the art and my usual rumbling!

I started drafting the main poster first, on paper. After reading the story, I knew what I wanted right away: *spoilers alert* Sam and not!Dean in front of the slightly jarring door with blue light leaking from the inside.

The first draft was lousy lol

I spent sometimes trying to find the perfect reference pictures of Sam and Dean in this exact position and moved to photoshop.

Dean was too pretty but I can't do anything about that. I just followed the reference, ok? So now we got Not!Dean in a red Standford hoodie and Sam who looked unwell. Then we had a wall. Next, I needed a jarring door and some blue lights.

The lights and shadows made Sam look even more pale and unwell, and I liked it cause it was in tune with the story. My author also thought it was a good idea to make Dean and his red hoodie stood out. So readers can see that there was something wrong with this Dean (because, *spoilers*, he was not Dean!). Dean wouldn't wear a Standford hoodie! I hope I can put Standford text somewhere on the hoodie to make the point clearer. But cannot, cause the text was supposed to be on the front :(

The final version was satisfying though :D Dean still looks too pretty but well...

I also did ending pic and it was Sam reading text from the real Dean on his phone. I loved this image from the story so much. It was hopeful and sweet but not too sweet. And the last word OMG. I just needed to add the word into the pic cause it was perfect. This one was not so complicated. Sammy is smiling again. Everything is good now.

I also did one simple divider :) You have to read the story to know what this thing is representing :D


Done and done! Hope you enjoy!
