Better the Devil You Know by lily-fox Better the Devil You Know by lily-fox
It was a toss-up between “Better the Devil You Know”, “The Art of the Deal” and “Location, Location, Location”. Oh, how I loathe Crowley, and yet he is monstrously charming.

You can get this one a shirt, too!

Crowley is a great character. His smooth voice conceals a monstrous will and malicious intelligence that make him one of the best villains on television. He doesn't even have to be doing anything to be menacing. Just sitting there with his crooked smile is enough.

Great piece focusing on a great character played by a great actor. It's just THAT great. =)

Probably because I love Bobby so so much, but one of my very fave episodes is the one with Crowley's remains. Oh Crowley, you are funny when you don't get your way. And ever the gentleman!

I'm sure when I finally get round to watching Supernatural, I'm going to spend my life going back through your gallery and adoring the gorgeous art all over again for a different reason!

I won't lie that the name Crowley has my mind firmly set on Good Omens though :P

I don't want to love Crowley. I don't even want to LIKE him. And yet there is just something so ridiculously fascinating about his character that draws you in. He's an awful, vicious demon who will do whatever it takes to get to the top, and has done so much to prove his callousness, and yet I can't seem to hate him?

I adore Crowley. He is so evil, but the show just wouldn't be the same without a different king of Hell. Nice quote and picture. He was immediately recognizable.

*with* a different King of Hell. I think I accidently combined two sentences there.

Oh that is a great job you did! You really captured him in your style. Wow!

BTW, your art among other things has convinced me to try to watch the latest season. I was too afraid that the story and characters would stop making sense, but the call is too strong. My sister and I are braving it over her winter break in a couple of weeks. All it took to finally break my resolve was a screen capture of Castiel and Dean hangin' out. I miss these guys soooo much.

Okay, from what episodes I've seen and what I've heard so far, the writing this season is the best yet. I mean, it's gorgeously shot, it's just a masterpiece. It totally makes up for how damaged everyone is already. This season blows the last couple out of the water. You won't regret it!

I think you picked the right tag line for this. "The art of the deal" would've been good if it was more of a scroll and a different background.

Blending the suit into the background is a brilliant choice, especially because it's like he's appearing out of the darkness.

The first thing I said upon seeing this was, "This would make an amazing tee."

And then I saw your link, and rejoiced!

And then I clicked it, and it gave me a 404 and I was sad.

I really, truly love the way you've captured Crowley here. That little smirk, the set of his brows--totally perfect. The red halo absolutely seals the deal: brilliant work.
