[sticky post] Quicky Sticky

Through a fandom project I found out there are a lot of artists with a desire to create more as well as a lot of authors who wished for art to go with their stories that weren't part of big writing challenges. Yet both were not sure how to approach each other. I aim to bring y'all together in this art-community by offering opportunities for quick creative collaborations. Challenges are open for fandom artistst with any level of experience and for every art medium you can think of. All ratings, pairings and genres in the SPN fandom are welcome, including RPF and GEN.

Sign ups for a Speed Date in the MatchMaker Challenge are still open until Sunday March 17!

Quickies 2016 Round 1 | MatchMaker 2016 | Quickies 2016 Round 2
Matches & Quickies 2017 Round 1 | Quickies 2017 Round 2
Quickies 2018 Round 1 | Quickies 2018 Round 2

The Quickies and MatchMaking Challenges are meant to inspire you to get creative as soon as possible, so you don't get too lost in your head worrying about the perfect visual. Art can be anything from a banner to a scene illustration and we welcome all media, from pencil sketches to digital designs.
To avoid procrastination there is one rule: you have to set yourself a deadline within the timeframe of the challenge. (Maximum of a month for the regular QuickyBang; one, two or three weeks for the Matchmaker Challenge)

Art can be posted to the community as soon as you're ready. There is no need for a storybanner as a preview, but we do require at least a sneak peek or teaser of the artwork to be visible in the post. (This is an ART community after all;) Whether you link to an artpost in your own journal or directly to the author's story is up to you. We do encourage you to promote each other's work!

Last call for the MatchMaker Challenge!

So much love for the very diverse artwork that was made in the past few weeks, who's ready for more? I still have several scary, sexy and sweet short stories for you to play with, featuring Sam & Dean, Castiel & Dean, Jensen & Jared, but also a couple of rare pairs and gen fics. Why not tell me what you want and I'll see if I can match you up? Or let me surprise you and challenge yourself with a step outside your fanzone. Each story is finished and has less than 4000 words, so you can start arting right away!

Go here to join in;
pick your own date, set your own schedule
and you'll get send a fitting fun fic to create art for.

The MatchMaker Challenge will run for another month. I will post reminders when it's final call for the Speed Date (one week), a Double Date (two weeks) and the Blind Date (three weeks). Don't wait until the last minute: plan ahead and ask for a date! For now you can still sign up for all options. GO GO GO!
I love Quicky Bang! I've participated before and I think this is my 4th fic to make 'quicky art' for.

I wish I had more time to do this because even though I'm not that great at it, I love making 'art'.

Anyway here is the preview for this piece. (Click for full image)

Nothing fancy, I can't draw all that well but I love playing in Photoshop and I'm always trying to improve. I'm just glad my author was happy with the results.
