Title: The Road Less Travelled
Pairing: Arthur/Eames
Rating: PG
Notes: It’s been ABSOLUTELY brilliant working with [livejournal.com profile] butterflythread. I was so happy when she claimed my art and I love the direction she took my original prompt, it was like the clash of a bad TV program ‘WHEN GAME GEEKS COLIDE’. She’s been so patient with me, especially when I was unable to be around as much as I wanted. Thank you Nellie, you’re awesome, and I hope we get to team up more. I also want to thank [livejournal.com profile] platina  and [livejournal.com profile] weatherfront  for being amazing cheerleaders when it came to the art. Because it’s based on the game Fallout 3, I went completely comic book style with the new art to reflect that universe more, it was so much fun. The original prompt was for a much darker idea, so I’m glad we went lighter.

Thank you so much for looking, and I hope you like it. beware of the huge pictures I have under the cut, may take time to load.

Cerise <3 Things didn't go quite according to plan, so I was stressing over them. I know I shouldn't, but I'm a worrier XD BUT THANK YOU, I HAVE NO WORDS BRILL ENOUGH TO SAY HOW HAPPY I AM YOU LIKE IT BUT HAVE A MASSIVE FLAILY HUG INSTEAD *glomps*

I was worried it was all too green, but the games have that sickly colouring so I rolled with it. Hee, the looking at us started with the original pic and Arthur, I thought it would be fun to let people into teh story like that. I'm a little in love with Dogtag, she was so much fun to draw, bless her grumpy self XD

*laughs* I'm often told that I'm a giant silly *hugs*

I love the colouring here! Your style is such an inspiration, always.

I noticed that in all of these, one of them is looking directly at the viewer -- eye contact with the viewer is something I don't normally see in fanart and the effect is really novel! Almost a little unsettling, in a way? It's a good effect for Fallout pics, the universe is unsettling. :D

Also really loving the costume designs here! It's difficult for me to keep my designs coherent and consistent. :D

I'm glad you do as it was the colouring that was giving me a hard time. Awww thanks so much, It makes me blush a lot but it makes me happy to know I can inspire others, because you all inspire me <3

*nods* It was an idea I had because of the game, and the fact you never quite see your characters face. For this I felt it would be fun to have them know they were somehow being watched. Breaking the 4th wall is something I always find a hoot, such as when comic book characters or TV stars suddenly start talking to the audience.

It is hard, there were some moments when I forgot who was wearing what lol

Dogtag will be okay, she just doesn't like gunfire getting too close to her dad XD

Ps I saw the lovely red_rahl will be doing the Unicorn fic art for you (can't wait to see it <3), would there be anything else you'd like me to draw for you hun?

I can't deal with all this detail I think me and all this gorgeous detail need to take some time-out and just stare lovingly at each other for a little bit. I guess the colours can come, too

OHMYGOD the picture with Arthur shushing Eames is just really really hot, excuse me I think I need to take off some layers of clothing because it is making me burn from the inside out asklddfj Arthur's pants riding low and Eames' shirt riding up to give us a peek of his tattoo ♥

Mostly I love how you drew their ungelled, windswept hair -- especially Eames', I want to pet him!

The composition is beautiful in the original piece, the textures and color palette look amazing. Also, DOGGIEEEE ♥

BUT THEY STILL HAVE CLOTHES ON, IT'S UNFAIR FOR YOU TO BE THE CLOTHE-LESS ONE HERE XD LOL BUNNIE ILU <3 Arthur's pants can't get past his BUBBLE BUTT. I think it's a thing of mine to have tats peaking out at you.

I did wonder what the hell they'd use in a Fallout verse, decided it was scary a thought and went for total bedhead <3

THANK YOU HUN <3 It was so different for me in the facts it's not really fully coloured, it's just pencil detail, flats and a ton of texture.

How does everything you draw become so TOUCHABLE. *____* The folds of fabric and their glorious beautiful hair and their BODIES and omg that puppy...!!! There isn't a single corner or plane of color thrown away, you use every bit of space to its best advantage and it makes everything so wonderfully cinematic. For god's sake you are brilliant, Lucy.

I DON'T KNOW!? I'm just utterly obsessed by detail. I mean I could out Pointman Arthur, or out forge Eames if I wanted to ;P This is all my dearest wish to draw comics shining through. When I think of art, I always think of it as that one great frame from a movie (or fic) God, thank you so much Iffy and for putting up with my constant whittling over my art <3

Oh my god. Oh my god. This is me getting up and doing some kind of flaily victory dance and basically being made ten kinds of amazing drunk happy by your art. I desperately love the one of them behind the dumpster with Arthur's rifle and the dog being UNHAPPY [aww, poor doggie, omg what happened], and the one of Arthur shushing Eames as they're on the backseat. You draw them both so well, from the hair to the clothes and the tats and DOGGY. :D:D:D So vibrant and real! LOVELOVELOVE. You are a star.

THANK YOU SO MUCH SWEETHEART <3 are you saying my art is like beer? I kid, I kid XD I'm immensely happy you like it. poor Dogtag, her dad gets her into the worst situations, especially since he met that floppy haired new guy (she'll be okay, she just doesn't like gunfire getting that close) someone has to shush that mouth, preferably with another mouth.

Thanks again, you've been to kind but it makes me SO happy xd

OMG Lucy! SO BEAUTIFUL! I love the BGs, I love the colors, I love the scars and the guns and Eames' fingerless gloves, I love it ALL, ok? The details, they get me every time. The tattoo on Eames' hip, the dogtags around the dog's neck, does the scarf on Arthur's neck migrate to Eames in that second picture? The textures! This is all so amazing and really all I can do is stare. <333333

Laria <3 It makes me happy to know you like all those things. it's the hardest part of drawing trying to decide what world to put them in, and what they would be wearing. And lol yeah he pinched Arthur's scarf for a bit there XD

Thank you so much XD

This is amazing. The original piece was incredible, I love the idea of the triptych and the whole end of the world atmosphere.

The new pieces are gorgeous. I love all the small details: Eames's tattoos, the drawing on his shirt, the torn cushion...and the dog is a beauty.

Thank you so much hun <3 I seem to have a bit of a love affair with triptych, as my other art was done the same way. I just love that whole placing 3 artworks into one, it made showing how desolate the world is much easier.

I'm glad you like Dogtag, I was very fond of drawing her. She's a mix of my two fave breeds, a husky and collie XD

And I JUST HAPPEN to be listening to the Fallout 3 soundtrack XDDDDDDDDD

Your illustrations are so wonderful I cannot say what has already been said XD. I love the scarves and the DOG and the DOG HAS A SCARF IT IS TOO CUTE XD AND AND DOGTAGS! <3

Your colours are really something. I am totally in love~

I cannot wait to read the fic <3

You have AWESOME taste there XD I was listening to it through drawing this.

I'm obsessed by scarfs, they seem to pop up in my art quite a lot. I'm worst that Ari lol Her name is Dogtag, Eames found her with the tags around her neck and thus she was named.

Thank you so much, I was worried they were a bit too green, but I think they fit well as the Fallout game is so green and yellow too.

Nellie shouldn't be too long with it <3

Thank you ever so much <3 It makes me very happy when you say you like all those, you wouldn't believe how long I researched scarfs and cute doggies (such hard, hard work there ;D)

Hee, I couldn't resist having chibis somewhere <3

on 2011-04-17 12:58 pm (UTC)
Posted by [identity profile] delires.livejournal.com

My FAVOURITE thing about these images is the way that in each one (except the chibis) there is one of the characters looking out at the viewer. It makes it a little uncomfortable...like you're being called out for spying on these intense moments between the two of them. That's really really effective, I think...it works like direct address in writing and makes me sit up and really take notice. It's clever.

I also like the moody colour scheme. So atmospheric.

I would look at your drawings forever. ♥

Posted by [identity profile] loobeeinthesky.livejournal.com

That sort of happened by accident with my original pic and Arthur looking out at us. I thought it would be fun to break that fourth wall with the rest of them too. Also, to make them somehow more cinematic, like actors staring out from the screen XD I'm really glad you like it and it worked XD

I'm chuffed to bits luv <3

Lucy. Lucy. I don't even know what I can say that I haven't already told you. You know how I feel bb, and you really did spoil me... it's so much more than my fic deserves. You captured the moments so well and it's all so glorious, it's everything everyone else has already said and more. I fully intend for us to party on down together again. WITH ZOMBIES. YES. <3

NELLIE <3 I do, I do, and I'm sure you know how happy I am too. Seriously, I know you think you didn't do your best, but that's all lies. I really do love the fic to bits and i'm beyond happy with what you wrote. It was so human at heart, with wonderful tension, and hot, hee XD

AND YUSSSS! We'll move the party to Zombieland with extra added badassery ;)

Wow, these are really some of your best work yet. I love everything about this, interesting scenes and poses and beautiful colors with the greenish tones and yellow highlights and that last chibi pic pretty much killed me that with all it's cuteness. Sparklin!Eames and frowny!Arthur rule my heart and the dog, omg, the dog! You draw animals really well.

A+ and <3

Oh wow, hun, thank you so very, very much for your comment. Nellie's the one who gave me such amazing scenes to draw, so it was easy to run with and let rip. The colours were the most difficult because I was worried they would be too similar, but then it is a sickly world :D

Hee, the chibi pic was a complete acident as was having a art block and just doodled anything to kill it. Mt Grumpy and Mr Sparkles were too cute to leave out XD I LOVE drawing animals, I could draw them way before I could ever draw a person (DT's sort of based on my sisters dog)

*hugs you*

Thank you <3 I actually drew it in mind that we're watching a movie unfurl. I knew not a lot of people may have played the game so only put in sly markers that it's based on FA.
