Ain't Nobody's Business If I Do by Lienwyn Ain't Nobody's Business If I Do by Lienwyn
I signed up for the Cap/Iron Man Reverse Big Bang over at Livejournal on a whim and my art got claimed by the amazing Copperbadge.
So for the past month or so I've been drawing these, illustrating the fic he wrote based on my art. The second picture was the one I used for the claims so the other four are the ones based on Sam's writing. It's a 616 AU set during the Prohibition. Because who can say no to that?

It's been amazing journey and I've quite literally put everything else on hold in order to complete these in time before the deadline.
Still, it was worth it because the fic is awesome, I'm really proud of the art and it was my first time doing one of these collaboration things. And I loved it.

I hope that you will too!
I had a lot of fun trying to give the pictures the 'old photos'-look and I loved drawing those clothes. I just loved all of it.

Woah! Så sjukt snygga bilder! :love:
Det syns verkligen hur mycket tid och arbete du lagt ner på dem! X3

Fic'en åker på min 'ska-läsa' lista! Har inte varit så sugen på att läsa fics på ett tag nu, men när jag börjar om så blir det nog den här jag läser ;P

Taaaaack! :D
Jo, jag la ner en hel del jobb på det och höll på att storkna innan det var klart x'D Men jag är sjukt nöjd med dem!

Det låter awesome! Det är en sjukt bra fic!
Jag har bookmarked de som du var en del av men liksom dig så har jag inte läst särskilt mycket på senaste tiden så det har som inte blivit av än. Men jag ska, helt klart! :D

What is the Cap/Iron Man Reverse Big Bang? I never understood what that was...

It's a project held over at livejournal. A group of artists draw pictures meant to inspire a fanfic, then fanfic-writers get to claim the pictures and write for them. The artist and writer are given about a month to work on the thing - the artist can draw more pictures if they want (like I did) - and the level of collaboration varies, but the fic is supposed to be connected to the initial image anyway.
Then the teams start posting their works when they've reached their deadline. In this case we were around 40 teams I think, all posting during May :)

That's a REVERSE Big Bang, since the pictures are drawn first. In a regular Big Bang a writer will give a short summary of a fic intend to write and the artists are the ones picking the story they like the most.
Then the author writes and the artist illustrates.

It's a really fun project and usually you can find some pretty awesome fanfics and fanart! :D

Thank you for explaining. It makes SO much more sense now :iconduhplz:. I really need to check that out. I made a Stony picture and the title of it alone sounds like a Fanfiction title xD

You're welcome!

You do that! I don't know when the next one is scheduled thought...
Remember that you can only submit pictures drawn specifically for the Big Bang though (as in not old ones), so if you find one you sign up for it shold be new pictures.

Gorgeous job with the textures! They really add some history to the "photographs" without distracting from the details at all. I love all the extra little details on the clothes, too. You draw the folds of the cloth in a way that implies movement really well. Did you have to work from references for that?

And I'm dying at the way Tony is standing on the bottom step to be as tall as Steve in the last one!

I love textures. I just can't help it! It can add so much to a picture and these were a good example of that.
No, I didn't use references for the folds. I suck at using references >_> I did look up how the design for the suits and tuxedos in particular but that was just to be able to draw them in general. I never went deeper and used them for details.

I think that's pretty cute, isn't it? ;)
I just saw it in my minds eye when I read the fanfic and couldn't help drawing it that way!

Thank you so much for commenting! I'm glad that you like them! :D

I guess I am getting better, aren't I? It's not obvious all of the time but something is happening at least, whether I notice it or not :XD:
That's comforting somehow.

AAAAAHHHHHHHHHH THIS IS SO GORGEOUS! Sam posted the story on his journal along with a thumbnail of your art and I HAD to come here and tell you how amazing it looks before I even started reading! I love the black and white, it looks like it's going to fit the tone of the story perfectly! Thank you so much! :D

THANK YOU!
I tried to replicate that 'old photos'-feel, just to make sure that they suited the story better, and I've been told that it worked! It was so much fun drawing these and people seem to love them which just makes it even better!
Thank you for commenting! :hug:

Looking awesomely good, all of them! :love: I particularly drool over the first two but they're all fantastic :D The feel and the texture, all the interiors and the interaction - subtle AND obvious - are all really, really nice. I definitely take my hat off for you, they're great :hug:
Now rest and breathe so that you can move on from them ;) Great job, sweetie!

Thank you!
It was a lot of work but I'm proud over the result! Even if I was pretty sloppy on the backgrounds sometimes :XD:
It still works! And in this case that's what matters.

Well, I can rest from THESE but I still have other things to do so I can't really rest yet anyway x'D

Well, even if you were it's still good practice and captures a lot of essence and feelings in the moment portrayed, so... Works very well, I'd say :D

True, true. But rest as well as you can! :hug: Take care of yourself ^^
