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.

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! :-)
