Searching high and low by lily-fox Searching high and low by lily-fox
Another of the angel Castiel, from Supernatural.

I was looking through :icongarama:'s gorgeous work and feeling pretty low about my own, so I thought I'd play around with some color a little bit, and try to keep shit simple. I kind of have no idea what I'm doing, but. It's an excuse to draw Castiel, and I'm okay with that. Also, that blotty halo pattern is pure Garama. I really liked it, and wanted to try it, but I don't have a tablet, obviously, so I used Sharpie.

materials: mechanical pencil, Sharpie, paper + PS8
music: The Dead Weather, "I Can't Hear You"

The idea of you not being happy with your own work when so many people like it is mind-bottling. Also I love this. I want to ruffle his hair. <3

I dig the sharpie use. I mean really. It actually looks like some kind of brush from Photoshop. Good use of material. Also your work is inspiring. I actually try to draw in your style because its simple but has this character about it. Your work makes me go, "Draw like lily-fox. Draw like her!"

I always feel inspired to draw when I look at your stuff. You are just one of my favourite artists out and a fabulous person to boot. I look at your pictures and say to myself, "I want to do more stuff like that." Bit by the Lily bug!

Yesh he did. I got it back though. And everyone at the con warned me about him being a Klepto. He took it right after this picture: [link]

I guess he's an Indiana Jones fan. Matt Cohen wanted it also.

He's a goofball. Actually they all seem to be, but Jared is like the WORST offender of the goofballness.

I only talked to Misha for like five seconds, one day... I will be a director and work with him and find out how badly he is about corpsing on the job.

He did teach me and a ton of people a really neat way to tie shoes.

Creative shoe-tying? "Corpsing"? :D Clearly you had an awesome time at a convention. Tell me about it, if you feel inclined! I'm all ears. Every video from cons that I've seen of the three of them looks like the most fun you can have short of a day at the carnival. I think it's hilarious that Jared and Misha are both so fuckin' funny, and yet their characters don't get to be funny a lot. It's the Allison Brie Syndrome.

SkeksisGirl Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2012
"Corpsing" is a film making term. Ever watch those outtakes where the actors can't stop laughing? That's Corpsing.

And yes, it is funny how Jensen is the more serious of the two actors but plays the more goofball character. They essentially have the personalities switched around. Jensen's a very private person while Jared is very outgoing and hyper like a puppy.

Misha is just crazy, if you follow his twitter or Random Acts, his charity site you'd see what we mean. Also some of the characters he's played on other shows are nuts.

I'm an avid convention goer and met a ton of people. Unfortunately I don't think I'll ever go to another SPN convention again. I don't like how Creation Entertainment manages them.

Ha! "Corsping" sounds counterdescriptive of a giggle fit, but it's still funny.

I feel bad, kind of, because if I were a celerity, I think I'd be pretty private and reserved, but seeing people who are like that makes me fall out of love with them a little. But I know, not everybody can be Mr. Entertainment, Mr. Funny all the time. That's a skill.

I've heard Misha's Twitter is pretty funny. I'll have to take a peek. And I was curious about Random Acts. There's a website for it, yeah?

So what are the conventions like? I mean, they sound like they'd be a ton of fun, and more relaxed than your average convention, but having never been to one, I couldn't say.

How can you feel low about your work when you come up with amazing stuff like this?! I mean, I love the modest use of color, the way his hair blends into his halo, the expression on his face.

I mean, I wish I had even the tiniest drop of your talent!

Aw, thank you so much. This makes me smile. I guess everybody has those moments of envy, but if you want to get better, you just have to play around and practice, right?

Glad you like the color! I do too.
