Title: Art for "Cry Havoc," a Paperlegends 2013 story by [livejournal.com profile] k_nightfox
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] altocello
Pairings/characters: Arthur/Merlin
Warnings: Art contains spoilers for the fic, some blood in one illustration, and depictions of slavery (Merlin is collared)
Medium: Chalk pastels, sepia ink, and pencil on toned paper and sketchbook paper, GIMP used to correct contrast, add my sig, and create a sepia tone effect.
Summary: Enslaved by Kanen since childhood, Merlin has been raised to believe his collar is all that keeps him in check. That it is the line between the beast that bites and the dog that obeys... and that either way, he's still an animal. Then one day Kanen's gang is ambushed and in the ensuing confusion, Merlin escapes and flees to Camelot where he attempts to start a new life. However, his old master isn’t about to let him go without a fight.

Title: Art for "Mr. Pettigrew Lives for a Day," a Paperlegends 2013 Big Bang story by [profile] slashweaver
Artist: [personal profile] altocello
Pairings/characters: Arthur/Merlin, Gaius/Agravaine
Warnings: Art contains spoilers for the fic
Medium: Mixed: ink, coffee, and chalk pastels on white and toned paper. GIMP used to correct for contrast lost when photographing the originals and to add my sig.
Summary: The world-worn Mr Pettigrew has only one ambition in life, and that is to be a gentleman’s gentleman. Having just been summarily dismissed from his current post, down to his last pennies – and with another Great War looming over London – even this modest goal now seems far beyond his reach. At his lowest ebb, he grasps at an opportunity – and suddenly the shabby yet proper old man finds himself awhirl amidst the glamorous immoral world of beautiful nightclub singer Sir Arthur Pendragon.

Do I really need to warn for crossdressing art on my journal anymore?

Drew this for Challenge #5 over at [profile] merlin_ficart. There were so many prompts I wanted to take but, alas, I only ended up having time to do one. But this is the one! Here is my illustration for the lovely "Gray Lace and Satin Roses" by [personal profile] riventhorn.

Beta'd by the ever amazing [profile] reni_m, [personal profile] amphigoury, and [profile] gfeather, with serious support from the folks at gsdmerlin.

OMG, there's a fic for one of my pieces!

I put "feathers" up as a prompt over at [livejournal.com profile] merlin_ficart for challenge #5, and the lovely [livejournal.com profile] thecheekydragon was kind enough to choose to write fic for it!

It's called "Corset," and it's a grand little fic, just perfect for the drawing. Many thanks to cheeky for writing it! :D
