Nothing Beats Porntastic Artwork  

Guys, seriously, you MUST check this out. My bff Gus is an artist and because he is made of win, he did this way pornographic Buffy/Spike/Faith hand drawn color bar banner thingy for me. See, he likes Dawn, and originally he was gonna have her instead of Faith, but I convinced him that it would be too wrong to have both Summers girls getting a piece of Spike at once. Some of the scenes depicted are based on the events in In the Details and Sense Memory

"Inspired by ClawofCat's wonderfully fun fics, I came up with this scenario for the artwork. I wanted to make images that would otherwise never be seen in a manip... something with an odd angle and an unusual message. This is what I came up with.

I made this banner by using Adobe Photoshop entirely, along with my Wacom tablet. I first made a layer where I sketched the composition and then using other layers made a contour trace of the work and colored the piece. I knew I wanted three panels, so I kept the canvases I worked on squares for ease of compilation. I used a reference for the faces only, and made the rest up as I went along. It took me about a total of three and a half hours.

I hope you all enjoy it. May it put a smile on your face like it did CoC."

This is his first Buffy piece, so please leave him some feedback! Thanks!

Wow! This is utterly stunning! *stares in awe* Your friend is really really talented! I know I have absolutely no right to be pestering for more but I can't help doing it anyway. So, ahem, could we please have more of this awesomeness? Pretty please with a cherry on top?

Thanks for the compliments. He's been all giddy seeing what people think. He's not used to the instant feedback. The beauty of LJ, you know?

He's got a Spike/Buffy/Angel piece in the works, so there should be another in the next few days. No begging necessary, but it's always nice *wink*

Also, I don't remember if I commented or not, but that Spuffy manip you did for Sotia was zomg! amazing. I had to wipe the drool a little.

A Spike/Buffy/Angel piece? Woohoo, that sounds fantastic! I can barely wait! And I'm both ready and willing to beg for it, too - no problem. I can even crawl if there's the smallest chance it might help the case. Plus I can throw a pretty damn mean puppy eye expression into the mix, too... *g*

Thanks for the lovely compliment (including the always appreciated drooling) on my Spuffy manip. I'm pretty happy how it turned out myself. I loved the base pic, and even though I had to modify it quite a bit in order to make the manipping possible it still ended up working surprisingly well.
