The Recipe for Love is a 14 page comic drawn for the 2013 Supernatural Reverse Bang (a Live Journal Challenge). And because it's Christmas in January, you even have a great fan fiction written by Fine_Feathered that goes with it. You can find it HERE: archiveofourown.org/works/1139…
Rating of Art: PG Pairing: Dean/Castiel Warnings: None
Summary: On his way to the grocery store, Castiel Milton slips on a banana peel and falls by accident into the arms of a stranger. The incident only lasts a couple of seconds and for both of them, the story ends there. The trouble is that someone took a photo at the precise moment Castiel is in the guy’s arms. Because of a deceiving angle, they look like a real couple looking passionately at each other. The photo goes viral and everybody wants to know more about these mysterious lovers. Of course, Cas and “Mc Dreamy” have no idea of what is going on, they don't even know each other. When Cas opens his door the following morning an army of journalists are waiting to ask him about "his boyfriend Dean" and what it feels like to be an Internet icon.
This is amazing! Wow, I never knew people could be so talented. I've just read the story because I've seen the first drawing, but then I came back to read the whole comic and it is sooo good, and funny. Cas' face on the last page is just precious. The whole thing is beautiful, just beautiful. Archie made me laugh. The people with names of news programs on their faces, that was so clever. This is epic.
Oh, gosh, what the heck - I had this bookmarked already, but I swear I've never read it before! Must've just bookmarked it off that cover page... XD Anyway, this is super cute, and I am absolutely blown AWAY by your amazing art! I was literally holding my breath by the end, zoning out on the story to just stare at your expressions and lighting and skin... you draw them so perfectly!
I'm sorry about the late reply, I don't come to DA very often I'm very happy you enjoyed the art! Thank you so much It took SO much time, you have no idea, about 2 months. I was tired and fed up when I finally finished it! I'll draw again a comic one day but like this one, I don't think so! -____-
I LOVE drawing hair (particularly Jared's). It's such a lot of fun, building the texture strand after strand And yes, I put a lot of time in this! ^^ I'm very happy you liked it! Thank you very much for the great feedback about my comic
I'm very happy you liked it! It too SO much time, you have no idea, about 2 months. I was tired and fed up when I finally finished it! I'll draw again a comic one day but like this one, I don't think so! -____- Thanks a lot! ^^
Thank you so much for the amazing feedback about my art. I spent a lot of time on this comic so this kind of comments cheers me up
That said, do you have plans for a continuation comic?
No, because in fact, you have the end of the story in the fan fiction "The Recipe for Love". You have the story on AO3 here: archiveofourown.org/works/1139… I'm super you're gonna enjoy the story: it's sweet, funny and it will make you very happy
Eugh, that was so adorable. You've captured Castiel so freaking perfectly that I don't even understand how you didn't write supernatural. xD Anyway, as always, your work is just so beautiful! I love it!
It's good that I don't write for Spn: there would be more blood, more drama, and people who are dead would REALLY stay dead. I have NO mercy! ^^ Thanks a lot for the great feedback about my Dean/Cas comic! Glad you liked it
Then yes, it is very, very good that you don't, because then I would have to read it because I love anything Supernatural and then suddenly, my day has become so useless and careless because y'know what, my favorite character died in your story xD
No it was the fact that I started out as two Asian girls posting it on instagram and then it snow balled out of control then the look on Castiel/Misha's when the news reporters were at his door just made me laugh so hard
I think that Sam's face is what everybody noticed. His "WTF?!" expression is priceless and I was laughing my ass off while working on the art and looking at the reference picture Thanks a lot for enjoying my comic so much! Glad you liked it
The "WTF" face and the bitchface are my favourite, I can imagine the trouble of keep drawing and looking the references pictures XDD I wish I could color as well as you do :') keep doing such great work ;D
Absolutely! The power of social networks is a bit scary sometimes. You can become a celebrity without even asking for it. Thank you for the great feedback about my art and for enjoying my Dean/Castiel comic so much Glad you liked it!
OMG! It is wonderful! I think that is spite of long time you dedicated with this lovely artwork, the satisfaction is huge and you must feel very proud. I donīt draw but I like very much writting and I understand perfectly. When you are seeing how the story is advancing you want to follow and follow. The award is the comments of people. This is called happiness. When I see the drawings of Castiel and Dean, they remember the couple of men of my book. Best Regards and I hope creativity and muses flow to your mind and can give us more amazing art. Natalia
Thank you for the great feedback about my art and for enjoying my Dean/Castiel comic so much Glad you liked it!
Yes, it took me a lot of time, I think I worked on it on and off from July from October. I can tell you I was fed up at the end because this comic required a lot of work. This technique that mix Photoshop and Painter is very demanding and time consuming
Thank you for the great feedback about my art and for enjoying my Dean/Castiel comic so much Glad you liked it! There is more! You have the fan fiction if you want the end of the story : archiveofourown.org/works/1139…
OMIGOD. Your art is amazing, and beautiful, and even though I'd heard of the story and wasn't interested before, now I HAVE TO READ IT because your comic was so spectacular, and mind-blowing and uuuuggghhh... can't it go on to cover the rest of the story?
can't it go on to cover the rest of the story? OMG, I spent SO much time on these 14 pages, I can't even imagine the time it would take me to draw the rest of the fic In addition, it was a prompt for the RBB (a challenge on Live Journal) so it was normal I didn't draw the end!
I'm very happy you liked the art! Thank you so much
