Story title: Terraform
Author name: [livejournal.com profile] gilascave
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Summary: Jensen works for the Terraformation Department, monitoring a planet almost ready for settlement. Jared is a bartender new to the station, who decides to make Jensen his own personal project. Will he succeed, or is Jared hiding a more sinister purpose? And with Jensen's own secrets to hide, will it ultimately matter?
Art Notes: I have a thing for sci-fi stories. Terraform satisfied my sci-fi love in so many ways. I love the universe [livejournal.com profile] zortified created, and her characterization for Jared and Jensen is wonderfully unique and layered. I loved the complexity of this story, and how smoothly put together it is. And I also just love, how very much of a love story it is too. I highly recommend checking it out!

As for the art I had a great time doing this one. It was probably the most challenging, being set so far in the future, so I spent a lot of time searching for the right clothes, and the right background. In the end, I am just super pleased with how the art turned out. I was captivated by the haunting loneliness of that first scene with Jensen, and I just wanted to capture all of those feelings as best I could.

I really like this picture. I noticed Zort used it for her cover picture, but it wasn't until I was looking at the artpost for the rest of the pictures that I realized this wasn't among it. It's very nicely done and I really think it makes for the perfect 'cover' for the story.
