7 Days of Self-Promotion - Day 1  
Awww, my very first meme. For some reason I'm not very good with memes. But this one is short and awesome and half my flist is doing it :P Originally ganked from embroiderama \o/

The Days:
1. Something old
2. Something new - talk about a new fanwork of yours
3. Something you made for someone else
4. Something you made just for yourself
5. Something for a large fandom/pairing/character
6. Something for a small fandom/pairing/character
7. Something you're just really proud of

1. Something old
My very first LJ entry was for the 2011 White Collar Advent Calendar and it included four files not necessarily Christmas-related, heee. These were my very first attempts at doing something more advanced. I was still at the very beginning of my Photoshop journey but I was very determined and I was making my way through every possible tutorial I could get my hands on :) I remember the two stormy manips were a nightmare to create (it took me days, not hours, to make them) but once I finally got it more or less right, I was just so happy \o/


Awww, kanarek13 - the early days :P

Oh I remember those storm manips! Love them!
Talented from the get-go. :-)

Thank you :D

Yeah, I guess I was never fond of the "less is more" category *evil grin* But in all fairness, I still overdo it sometimes, it's my curse but I'm fighting it :D

I agree with Aragarna. I especially like the last one with Neal. : )

HOW DID I MISS THESE????? They are AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And inspiring.

I now want to write Neal standing in the rain, looking up into the Burkes' house, longing to be inside, with them. A part of their lives.

And when he's completely soaked and chilled to the bone and finally turns to walk away, Peter runs up to him, grabs his arm and hauls him inside :P

I need that fic, no matter what ending :P ♥

As for the manips, I never actually posted them to my LJ, just the whitecollarfic comm, I was new and clueless, heee :D

I have a lot of stuff that was never posted here. I really have to create a master list and add stuff :P
elrhiarhodanelrhiarhodan on July 20th, 2014 12:58 am (UTC)
Yes, yes, yes!

And they both get soaking wet as Peter kisses the stuffing out of Neal. Then come back and El insists they strip out of their wet clothes and get into bed together. Sharing body heat! Or something.

AND YES to the master list. YOU MUST!!!!!!!

Or El tells them to strip out of their wet clothes and go take a hot shower while she makes the bed ready...hmmm, Peter gets Neal naked and into the shower and then they wash each other and explore their bodies... without saying a single word :P

Then bedtime, heeeeee :P

Those are so gorgeous! I especially love Neal leaning against the pole in the rain.
kanarek13kanarek13 on July 20th, 2014 02:00 am (UTC)
Thank you :D Yeah, that one is still one of my favorites, I was so damn proud when I got it finished :D
eldorah: Petereldorah on July 20th, 2014 03:24 am (UTC)
Wow!! These are beautiful!! I love all four! The Peter one especially grabs me!
kanarek13kanarek13 on July 20th, 2014 11:23 am (UTC)
Aww, thank you :D
angelita26: Neal Happyangelita26 on July 20th, 2014 03:32 am (UTC)
Wow! I hadn't seen these before, and they're gorgeous. I especially love the first storm one (Neal in the upper left corner). It says so much - there's a lot of fic potential there. It's there for all of them but that first image really speaks to me. Love it!!
kanarek13kanarek13 on July 20th, 2014 11:25 am (UTC)
Awwww, inspiration FTW. They can be adapted to any fic cover, you know :P
Sally M: white collar 1sallymn on July 20th, 2014 09:33 am (UTC)
That firs one is quite possibly my favourite picture of Neal... ever.
kanarek13kanarek13 on July 20th, 2014 11:26 am (UTC)
Awww, thank you so much. It also is the very first manip I ever did :D
leesa_perrie: Peter Neal 2leesa_perrie on July 20th, 2014 11:05 am (UTC)
Wow, I wish my early manips were even half as good as these!! Love them! :)
kanarek13kanarek13 on July 20th, 2014 11:28 am (UTC)
Aww, thank you so much :D
sinfulslasher: neal approvessinfulslasher on July 20th, 2014 12:29 pm (UTC)
Aww, you're playing too! :D Welcome to the flock, fellow sheep! *g*

I couldn't create something like this if my life depended on it, so I see absolutely no reason to look down at the early days of your artistic journey. Love the manips! And the last one is so angsty and moody, it makes my Muse perk up and take an interest. *headdesk*
kanarek13kanarek13 on July 20th, 2014 01:00 pm (UTC)
Thank you *hugs* I had a thing for angst and h/c from the very beginning. Neal suffers so beautifully and he looks even more beautiful when he finds comfort in Peter's arms ♥ ♥ ♥
palombaggiapalombaggia on July 20th, 2014 04:07 pm (UTC)
These are awesome dear!
Goldmine for fic and h/c and ...humm...porn.
kanarek13kanarek13 on July 20th, 2014 05:55 pm (UTC)
Awww, thank you :D
sheeniannisheenianni on July 21st, 2014 01:23 pm (UTC)
Wow, these are beautiful. I've never seen them before. What a good thing that we have these memes.
