DVD Commentary Meme - Art edition :P  
I've never done this meme before but after some encouragement from pooh_collector and angelita26 I decided to give it a try. Obviously this is the art edition as I have not committed a single fic in my fandom years :P

Here's how it works:

Pick any of my artwork pieces (you can use my AO3 work list which is the closest thing I have to a master list ATM) and comment to this post with that selection (including a link to the artwork). I will then give you a DVD commentary on that piece: what I was thinking when I created it, why I created it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain objects/techniques, struggles and challenging aspects and anything else that you'd expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

Since this work is for one of my current stories, Dead Man Walking, then I'd love to hear what you thought about when you made the beautiful art by the same name.

Oooh, this one was a new challenge for me. I usually work with general prompts because the more room there is for interpretation the better :D I wasn't sure how I was gonna do with a very specific, detailed prompt but I definitely wanted to give it a shot.

The key was choosing the pics to work with and I was actually surprised that I found the perfect ones relatively fast. The sort of main pic was the hand with the tattoo and I built the cover around it. I also wanted a relatively large pic of Neal on the cover to show that he is not doing so well, I was trying out various options but in the end I decided to keep the pic of Neal smaller and fill the rest of the cover with something else - and since the fic takes place in prison - a pic of prison it was :D

I have to say that I almost immediately felt good about this project, everything was coming together just the way I wanted it, the muse was clearly inspired and cooperating :D I can only wish for more projects like this one, hee :D

Thank you :D

Thanks for the insight, and the artwork again! You really nailed everything I wanted! You're definitely my favorite White Collar artwork creator! :-)
