Title: Daenerys and Arya Art for [livejournal.com profile] multifan_gift exchange
Artist: Gryph ([livejournal.com profile] gryphon2k)
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] x_disturbed_x
Fandom: Game of Thrones
Characters/Pairings: Arya Stark, Daenerys Targaryen
Rating/Category: PG/Gen
Warnings: none
Summary: My receipient for the [livejournal.com profile] multifan_gift exchange asked for wallpaper and something that focuses on Arya and Daenerys. So I made a set of two wallpapers, one for each woman. And as a bonus, I threw in a fanmix, just because I think Arya is awesome.

This is my other piece of art for the [livejournal.com profile] spn_bigpretzel Spring Fanfic Exchange. The story is a SPN/Downton Abbey fusion, and Maggie Smith's Dowager Duchess has a big part in it, so of course, she had to be there. I found a great pic of a couple of guys in white tie that fit the profiles of the Winchesters, so I blended their heads onto the bodies. The text I did in the DA font (complete with mirror image), and also added some decorative Victorian floral corners for good measure. A little futzing with the color (more to mask the differences between all the sources), and it was done. I'm really happy with the expression of the guys and how well it looks like their heads were there all along, lol.

The story was written by [livejournal.com profile] phebemarie for [livejournal.com profile] sylvia_locust (who I had a great time doing the Family Feud art for last year).

Time again for the Spring Fic Exchange at [livejournal.com profile] spn_bigpretzel! This story was written by [livejournal.com profile] blackrabbit42 for [livejournal.com profile] dizzojay.

Summary: Dean finds an enchanted wardrobe in the Batcave. The Wardrobe doesn't just lead to Narnia, but to a variety of children's book worlds. Dean loves playing around in there, but there just might be someone else who needs it more.

Notes: I found a screencap from the bunker that I loved, especially the expressions of the guys. Then found a pic of the Narnia wardrobe with it open, and put a picture from the Whoville set (made a little extra trippy with vibrance filters and plastic wrap effect) inside the open wardrobe.

Summary: Art for [livejournal.com profile] smallfandombang story. The young monk Athelstan was sent to the North as part of a mission, to spread the word of God. Alas, everything that could go wrong, did go wrong, and he ended up enslaved and abused by the heathens.
In the late autumn, Ragnar Lothbrok finds a runaway slave in the forest and decides to keep him. Gradually, Athelstan comes to trust Ragnar, even to love him. But come spring, to Athelstan's horror, Ragnar leads a raid across the ocean to England - and Athelstan's guilt only grows when Ragnar returns with not just gold and silver, but Christian captives.

Title: Five Easy Steps to Falling in Love
Artist: Gryph ([livejournal.com profile] gryphon2k)
Author: Severina ([livejournal.com profile] severina2001)
Fandom: Live Free or Die Hard
Characters/Pairings: Matt/John
Rating/Category: G/Slash
Warnings: none for story
Summary: Art for [livejournal.com profile] smallfandombang story. The steps to falling in love are pretty standard. A couple meets, goes on a few dates, gets to know each other. They spend time together. There is some hand-holding, some snuggling, kisses that progress to more carnal pursuits. Eventually, they realize that they want to spend the rest of their lives together.
But when you meet your other half on a wild ride across the country chasing terrorists who are trying to destroy America's infrastructure, it follows that the courtship process might evolve a little... differently. The hand-holding might involve mutant rats, for example (at least, it does if you think like Matthew Farrell.) The cuddling may just include rope and a few bad guys (because you're John McClane, and it follows that you get to that stage of the relationship on a holiday.)
The road to true love doesn't always run quite as smoothly as one would hope -- but John and Matt will get there.

Title: Come What May
Author: Last Winter Rose ([livejournal.com profile] last_winterrose)
Artist: Gryph ([livejournal.com profile] gryphon2k)
Fandom: Avengers
Art Type: Digital composite
Characters/Pairings: Bruce Banner/Tony Stark
Summary: Art for [livejournal.com profile] mpregbigbang story by [livejournal.com profile] last_winterrose.Bruce have been on the run from Ross for many reasons, one of them is that Ross want to use him to breed an army of mini Hulks. Now Bruce is living with the Avengers at Stark Tower and is in a relationship with Tony. In fact they've been talking about making it official. Plus, now with SHIELD also behind him, Bruce believes that he's safe from Ross. He's wrong. Ross gets a hold of him and force Bruce into Heat before letting his tops Alpha soldiers have at him. Once the others get to him, Tony has to help him through probably the worst Heat Bruce has ever had but they believe that the worst is behind them. A month later, however, they soon find that they just jumped out of the frying pan with Ross and into the fire.
Notes: Stories with the ABO dynamic fascinate me. I did a banner with a couple of images of the boys, one of them with looking distressed, since much of the story focuses on Bruce's struggle against Ross. But overlayed on that, a picture of the boys looking happy, because they do reach a happy place together. I also did an icon overlayed with a triskele, which is an often-used image for ABO dynamics.

Title: Found Our Way To Finding Each Other
Author: [livejournal.com profile] backrose_17
Artist: Gryph ([livejournal.com profile] gryphon2k)
Fandom: Torchwood/Avengers
Art Type: Digital composite
Characters/Pairings: Clint/Ianto, Natasha/Pepper, Tony/Phil, Tosh, Owen, Nick Fury, Maria Hill, Harold Saxon and some Jack/Ianto
Summary: Art for [livejournal.com profile] mpregbigbang story by [livejournal.com profile] backrose_17. When Jack left Torchwood Three behind to chase after the Doctor; he left behind more than just a broken heart for Ianto Jones he left behind their unborn child. Hurt and heartbroken Ianto seeks out help from the man who raised him, Phil Coulson, together with him and the ragtag group that Phil has acquired Ianto finds a new home and a love he didn't think he could ever have. Clint Barton has had a crush on Ianto since the moment they first met all those years ago and even if he is carrying the child of another man he will be there for Ianto and maybe win more than just Ianto's heart in the end.
Notes: I loved the background close up of Ianto and Jack with their heads touching; that Jack cares for Ianto shows in the story, but also that he has a lot of other pressures that pull him to leave. I looked for a picture of Clint that was a little softer, and of Ianto that expressed his hurt and uncertainty.
I wanted to give a nod to all the other characters who show up in the story, so I made a bar/divider of as many of the other ones as I could fit in there.

Title: Compromised Positions
Author: Tarlan ([livejournal.com profile] tarlanx)
Artist: Gryph ([livejournal.com profile] gryphon2k)
Fandom: Stargate Atlantis
Art Type: Digital composite, fanmix
Characters/Pairings: John Sheppard/Rodney McKay
Summary: Art for [livejournal.com profile] mpregbigbang story by [livejournal.com profile] tarlanx. When Atlantis decides to alter the physiology of its inhabitants, John and Rodney end up a bonded pair. But John has a duty to Stargate Command and Earth. How do you choose between duty and love?
Notes: I love the emotions this story evokes of making hard choices, sacrificing happiness for duty, of regret and ultimately, realizing that love is more important than any of that. I tried to capture the flow of the story with the song choices, going from songs about love, to songs about pain and hurt, and then reconciliation. I love John's expression in the screencap I used for the mix cover, with Rodney in the background.
For the banner, I wanted to create a composite of the elements of the story; Atlantis in the background, John and Rodney both with deliciously confused looks (because I picture their relationship having a lot of those kinds of moments), with the promise of family as a fainter image.
Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] tarlanx for being a great author to work with (again!); she always puts out such wonderful stories that the art just flows so easily.

I made this mix for [livejournal.com profile] waywardmixes Round 15: Heroes and Villains; as soon as I saw the theme, I knew I had to make a mix for Daryl Dixon from The Walking Dead.

Warning: Spoilers for the end of S3 in the art on the back cover (which I'm putting below the cut).

Ain’t No Hero
A Daryl Dixon Fanmix by Gryph

Daryl Dixon will be the first person to tell you he “ain’t no hero”. Before the zombie apocalypse, he was just another red-neck, petty-criminal punk. But somewhere along the way, he started saving people. And that’s what heroes do, save people.

Here's the last piece I did for the [livejournal.com profile] spn_bigpretzel Spring Fanfic Exchange. I did art for [livejournal.com profile] jennytork's story called The Code, wherein the guy who is living in Sam's old dorm gets a bunch of postcards, written in code, that Dean mailed without knowing that his brother had moved.

I had a lot of fun finding images for postcards for all those kitschy "World's Largest" attractions that Dean would have wanted to stop at as he and John criss-crossed the country in the Impala. The World's Largest Cherry Pie was an absolute gem of a find. And the chick in a bikini had to be thrown in because it's, y'know, Dean.

Anyway, I had a blast taking part in the exchange, so many thanks to all the good folks over at that comm, especially [livejournal.com profile] jennytork and [livejournal.com profile] sylvia_locust for being great collaborators, to [livejournal.com profile] mamapranayama for my own AMAZING art, [livejournal.com profile] antrazi for being a good sport recipient, and most especially to [livejournal.com profile] patriciatepes and [livejournal.com profile] lylithj2 for my story gift and art, called We Might Die... So, Movie Night. It's a hilarious take on Crowley and the guys riffing on a horror movie, MST3K style. And an extra big hug to [livejournal.com profile] lolaann1 for organizing and running the exchange (and having the patience of a saint).

I did some art for a story over on [livejournal.com profile] spn_bigpretzel for the Spring Fanfic Exchange. This comm's specialty is "the lighter side of SPN". (Yeah, I know what you're thinking, what the SEVEN HELLS am *I* doing over there?? But hey, it's fun.)

Survey Says! by [livejournal.com profile] sylvia_locust is hilarious. John is watching Family Feud one day and becomes convinced that Richard Dawson is a shapeshifter. The only way to know for sure (and put him down if so) is for them to put together a team of five family members to go on the show. So who does John call on to fill out the team? Bobby, of course. And Rufus.

I LOVED Family Feud as a kid, and to me, no other host will ever measure up to Richard Dawson. I had a lot of fun with this one, photoshopping the "Family Feud" big board with the title of the story and putting John and Rufus behind the family console (notice that the score on their side is blank=zero, heheh). And I threw in a second Richard Dawson with shapeshifter eyes. But you'll have to read the story to find out what happens.

Anyway, here's the banner, and I also did a little icon as well:

Author: [livejournal.com profile] twilighthdfan
Fandom: The Fast and the Furious
Characters/Pairings: Dom/Brian
Art Type: story cover, fanmix (with covers)
Notes: Art for smallfandombang.  The story is an AU of the movie, where lots of people have mutant powers, and there is a slow, smoldering love story between Dom and Brian. I never saw any of the movies (but I'm a HUGE Vin Diesel fan), but I know the general plot and didn't feel like I needed more to thoroughly enjoy [livejournal.com profile] twilighthdfan's vision. Art is also posted on AO3.

Art Type: story cover, fanmix (with covers)
Notes: Art for smallfandombang. I really loved the angsty mood of this story, with it's themes of lost, longing, and a kernel of hope. The story cover focuses more on the gray devastation that Daryl lives with in a wintery Manhattan, while the mix focuses more on the relationship that gives him (and me) so many feelings. I don't want to spoil it, so you'll have to go read [livejournal.com profile] rsk110's amazing story for yourself. Art is also posted on AO3.

Author: [livejournal.com profile] severina2001
Fandom: The Walking Dead
Characters/Pairings: Daryl/Glenn
Art Type: graphic, fanmix (with covers)
Notes: Art for smallfandombang. The story is a schmoopy build on a relationship between Daryl and Glenn that takes place post-S2. [livejournal.com profile] severina2001 does a great job capturing all the characters, and with enough action to keep the reader on the edge of their seat. The graphic is based on a snarky Daryl comment in the fic, and I thought the screencap really just cried out for snarkiness. Art is also posted on AO3.

Notes: Choosing this story for [livejournal.com profile] smallfandombang was a good reason for me to buy the movie and watch it. The story is a sequel to the movie that supposes that Black Hat did not die.
