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.

I'm signing up of course, because it's always a lot of fun. Plus, this is the last one, EVER.

Anyone need an artist?

Artist: [livejournal.com profile] altocello
Rating: PG
Characters/Pairings: Arthur/Merlin
Warnings: Partial nudity, art contains spoilers for the story
Medium: Watercolor pencils on toned paper. GIMP used to correct for contrast lost when photographing the original, to add my sig, and (in the case of the title page) to add the lettering.
Summary: In the aftermath of the Great Dragon’s attack on Camelot, the city is left with the enormous task of recovering from all it has lost. Left a broken man by the loss of Morgana and Kigharrah’s fiery rampage, Uther’s rule begins to fail. Arthur finds himself struggling to hold the kingdom together while Merlin slowly begins to discover
all that becoming a Dragonlord entails.

Woot! It's sign up time again! I am all signed up to be an artist again this year.

Does anyone know of any authors who are interesting in collaborating with an artist from the very beginning but don't have one yet? Because I want to know who they are, especially if they're you. :D
