#026 Gift for danmaku  
Title: Showdown in the shadows
Artist: nyaubaby
Pairing: Sam/Dean
Rating: Gen/or more
Spoilers: Nope
Warnings: None

Notes: For spn_j2_xmas, as one of danmaku's prompt was old western, I tried to free my mind. It's not that naughty and filthy as I planned, but I hope you will still like it! ENJOY!
Special thanks to sazzlette who helped me creating the characters so I can do some art for them.
Her snipplet she wrote for me to help is behind the cut.

Sam is a runaway hustler who earns money from poker;
Dean, his older brother, is the marshal of the city, they meet again...

"Bloody sunlight was tarnishing the hills as Dean hitched up his horse and swung open the door to the jailhouse. His fingers were already itching before he noticed the figure seated at his desk. Dean shoved the door closed behind him and stood for a long moment, listening to the whisper of the intruder's breathing.

"Been a while, Sammy."

"You sound tired. You've been working too hard."

Dean took a step towards Sam. His voice was different to the way Dean remembered; deeper now, confident. A man's voice. Sammy had still been a kid when he ran away. "What're you doin' here?" Dean asked, folding his arms.

Sam turned to him, a half-smile just visible on his face in the dim light. "The hell kind of greeting is that?"

Starting forward, Dean got a hand caught up in the shoulder of Sam's coat, but Sam was on his feet before Dean had a chance to do anything else. Huh. He was taller now, too. Dean loosened his grip and smoothed his hand over Sam's shoulder. "How about a finger of whisky?"

Sam grinned. "That's more like it. Make it two and we're talkin'." "

Nina: Horsesiberian_angel on December 21st, 2009 02:07 pm (UTC)
*lol* My passion! I think that's exactly what makes an artist, this true creativity, this flow. Even if you're not all that familiar with the topic, you come up with sheer amazingness!

I love the colors, it's so very western! This is simply gorgeous. And I love to see the steps in your work, from adding the head to making it blend into the picture.

Great work! :)
Susan: 00 - bite my musenyaubaby on December 21st, 2009 02:04 pm (UTC)
Thanks hun! The steps are funny, but I'm glad I decided to blend the guys together, and make them smaller, so you don't see the mistakes in the manips ;)

Thanks!!! :D

Let me know if you want to have your name any of the icons... I can customize it for you :) Just because it's Christmas ;)

Holy crap - those are amazing!

no_delusion: {movie} wide sargasso seano_delusion on December 22nd, 2009 11:19 am (UTC)
I love the outcome, sweetie! Especially how the manip of Sam with the grungy look and the light turned out in the end, you picked the perfect picture of him. My favourites of the icons are 6 & 7 and the wallpaper looks amazing, very rugged and western like with the brown tones; it definitely reminds me of these movies my father used to watch with the old western heroes :D.
Susan: sn - boys - happy happy joy JOYnyaubaby on December 22nd, 2009 11:36 pm (UTC)
Julia! Yeah I specially like 6 and 7 too. Those are different from the main theme.
I feel a bit rusty not having done anything in the last 2 months... I hope I will have some more time to finish off some stuff that I started some time ago.

And they totally could fit for some old time heroes :D
sazzlette on December 23rd, 2009 10:58 am (UTC)
Glad I could help! :p They turned out gorgeous <3333
Susan: quote - *creative orgasm*nyaubaby on December 23rd, 2009 11:14 pm (UTC)
Thanks hun! without you, it would have been helluva harder! Also, there are people demanding fics... just sayin' :D
bandit_queen_1bandit_queen_1 on December 26th, 2009 03:18 pm (UTC)
Holy cow, these are Incredible!! I loved the western tv shows (yes, I'm old, LOL) and Jared and Jensen would be the perfect heroes in a western. Makes me want to dust off some wips and finish those westerns I have sitting on my hard drive. :-) Thank you for sharing your talent.
Susan: 00 - bite my musenyaubaby on December 28th, 2009 10:02 pm (UTC)
lol, I'm glad you like the art. Actually nothing that is posted here was intended except the manips. The wall just made itself, also the colours :)

Dust of your westerns and keep dreaming :D
nargynargynargynargy on January 3rd, 2010 04:55 pm (UTC)
Lovely work dude! I like the weathered quality to everything, great manipulations too! I hope your recipient liked them? :)
Susannyaubaby on January 7th, 2010 11:15 pm (UTC)
Yeah she did. My fingers are so rusty from long months of not doing anything, lol.

It's kind of a shame...
