Artwork for The Silver Dragon
Artwork for The Silver Dragon

Fic title: The Silver Dragon
Author name: firesign10
Artist name: blondebitz
Genre: rps
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: NC-17
Summary: 13 year old Jared and 17 year old Jensen come across each other via their mutual interest to karate. While they are very attracted to each other, they are pulled apart before really interacting when Jared's family moves away. Years later, 19 year old Jared returns and decides to resume karate instruction. Returning to his former dojo, he is thrilled when his teacher turns out to be Jensen! They gradually grow closer and closer as Jensen teaches Jared's class. Their relationship culminates at the big karate tournament, where Jared competes as a student and Jensen as a black belt. That night, they consummate their love, but their happiness comes to a screeching halt when a homophobic student discovers their relationship and outs them

This is my first time participating in the spn_j2_bigbang and firesign10 not only gave me a fabulous story to work with, but her support and feedback from day one has made the whole experience a delight.

So before we get to the pretties, I want to give a big thank you to my partner in crime, firesign10, the talented author of The Silver Dragon, whose awesome story inspired my muse.  Go check out her story ...you won't regret it!

Finally, a huge thank you to the spn_j2_bigbang mods, wendy and thehighwaywoman, for organising and running this event.  It was a great experience and a pleasure.

These are very good and I love the purple colouring you used.
The banners are so vivid and the chapter headers and dividers are also amazing.
Thank you for sharing them with us.

Thank you! I'm thrilled you liked them and thought the colours worked well.

I picked the bright purple as it seemed to contrast well with the silver dragon motif and I continued the colour scheme throughout.

Thank you for taking the time to view and comment, it's very much appreciated1 :)

Yes, I'm wandering through you journal again. *grin* I am in awe at the amount of work you have put into these two story challenges. Absolutely love the attention to detail which shows me your great respect for the story you are illustrating and your respect for the 'art' of photo manipulation and the artwork you are producing. Inspirational!

Hee! Browse to your heart's content sweetie!

These manips were a bit of a nightmare to be honest...and definitely a challenge!

Jensen's trousers were originally white in the base and I made all the manips...then the author of the story said...can you make Jensen's trousers black, as Karate teachers have white tops and black trousers!!!! Heh, I ended up starting again and changing Jensen's trousers to black, the white jacket on Jensen Dragon Patrol to Purple, the black belt to green!!!!!

It was worth it though as she was very grateful and a super partner to work with...and I try to make story banners fit the image that the author has when they wrote about it!
