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. )

In which I created an art remix of [livejournal.com profile] k_nightfox's gorgeous high fantasy style fic, "A Bright Blade in a Shielded Sky," by representing Merlin's relationship with his hitherto unknown twin, the new King of Ælfheim, Emrys.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I got glomped by the need to make a ~something to let you all know how much I love and appreciate you, and this is what eventually happened.

In which I made you guys a Valentine's Day card, complete with silly poem. )

In which I drew the two Queens of Camelot: Gwen is Goddess of Spring, who brings the promise of light and new life, and Morgana is the other side of her coin as Goddess of Autumn, who reaps the final harvest, deals the mortal wound to the King of Light, and brings the balance back in favor of the dark.

In which Arthur is the Oak King, the God of waxing light, and Merlin is the other side of his coin as the Holly King, the God of waning light.

Title: Illustrations for "Falls the Shadow," an AfterCamlann Big Bang fic by [livejournal.com profile] scotscookie
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] altocello

Warnings: None for the art, but the fic does have a fair amount of angst.
Medium: Pencil on sketchbook paper and digital paintings.

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.
