Hey all! After deciding somewhat at the last minute that I actually had the wherewithal to participate in the AfterCamlann Big Bang this year, I was lucky enough to snag the summary by blacktail_chorus, whose fusion with His Dark Materials made for some amazing visuals.

In which I made a bunch of portraits and a few chapter breaks for an awesome fic, and I hope you like them. )

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.

Title: Gaius as The Eagle
Artist: altocello
Rating: G
Characters/relationships: Gaius
Content notes: Drawn with watercolor pencil on black paper for the Celtic Animal Card collaboration at drawmelot.



The weather played nice and I actually got to see blue sky! Which meant I could photograph the original and post this! Yay!

[ETA: because I am a goober, and I forgot, but wouldn't have gotten this done nearly as well without the beta help from reni_m, amphigoury, and phoenixacid. The cheering squad also known as everyone on gsdmerlin was also invaluable! Happy Valentine's Day, guys!]

Hey all, I've seen a few of these so far (reni, amph, and mice come to mind) and thought they were neat.

Drew this today in a relatively short time (1.5 hours, that's fast for me lately) as a mini-glomp fest for [livejournal.com profile] mrs_leary.

Clicking makes the picture bigger!



I know, I draw him a lot. But there is a lack of Gaius in the fandom, and I'm just working to help restore the balance or something like that. Had completely ridiculous amounts of fun with Merlin, shamelessly used a reference screencap (guess the episode and scene!), and completely forwent the idea of a background. Medium is a boring old #2 pencil, it's what was handy. :D

Had fun doing this over at [livejournal.com profile] drawmelot for a collaboration. It was really interesting to learn what makes Gaius's expressions tick. Turns out you have to rumple up his chin as well as getting the eyebrow and tilt to the mouth right to indicate he's not quite smiling. Otherwise it looks like he's frowning at you. It took a few tries, but I finally got it. :D
