SPN/J2 Big Bang Art Post: The Courtship of Jensen's Costar

First up, here is the information for the story that I arted:

Fic title: The Courtship of Jensen’s Co-Star
Author name: qblackheart
Artist name: switch842
Genre: RPS
Pairing: J2, Non-AU
Rating: NC-17
Word count: 112,000+
Warnings: Language, Schmoop, Angst, Sex.
Summary: Somewhere in the time between a handshake and a hug, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki went from being reel-life brothers to real-life best friends, and complete strangers to cosmic soul mates, no rhyme or reason to it that either of them could ever see. Jared was everything Jensen was not: friendly, funny, and full of life; one in six-point-whatever billion the Earth’s population currently stood at. Life was awesome. Work was amazing. Everything was fine until Jared kissed Jensen. Everything was peachy until Jensen fell in love. With desperate times unexpectedly calling for desperate measures, Jensen called Chad Michael Murray for relationship advice – because being in love led to temporary insanity obviously – so it really didn't surprise him that he couldn’t seem to win when it came to wooing Jared. Still, Pisces must’ve been in a really good place in the night sky or something because suddenly, right smack dab in the middle of the miserable courtship of his co-star, Jensen discovered that maybe loving Jared was all he needed to do to win his heart. And luckily for Jensen, loving Jared was also the one thing he did best.


Firstly, thanks to qblackheart. This has been a truly collaborative project and I've really enjoyed getting to know you through this process. :-)

Secondly, big thanks to brihana25, whisper99 and daniel_shadow for the feedback and help on the trailer. I was trying some new things with this one and your input was very much appreciated.

There were two things I wanted to take into consideration when composing the art:
1) The linear nature of the story
2) Jensen's personal journey of acceptance

To that end, you will notice that the pictures used follow Jared and Jensen through the years, starting with season 1. They also gradually fade up from black and white to full color as Jensen comes to realize his feelings and accept what that means to him and his life.

With that said, here's the art!

All I Can Do – Chantal Kreviazuk
when you're on your own
when you're at the fork in the road

when you feel ashamed
the uniform don't make you brave

one kiss, you'll see, i'll make you believe
you belong with me

there's no place that far, it's written in the stars
